Jeremiah 25 Text (WEB)
  1. The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah (the same was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon),
  2. which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying:
  3. From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, even to this day, these twenty-three years, the word of Yahweh has come to me, and I have spoken to you, rising up early and speaking; but you have not listened.
  4. Yahweh has sent to you all his servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them (but you have not listened, nor inclined your ear to hear)
  5. saying, Return now everyone from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that Yahweh has given to you and to your fathers, from of old and even forevermore;
  6. and don't go after other gods to serve them or worship them, and don't provoke me to anger with the work of your hands; and I will do you no harm.
  7. Yet you have not listened to me, says Yahweh; that you may provoke me to anger with the work of your hands to your own hurt.
  8. Therefore thus says Yahweh of Armies: Because you have not heard my words,
  9. behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, says Yahweh, and [I will send] to Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against its inhabitants, and against all these nations around; and I will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a hissing, and perpetual desolations.
  10. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the lamp.
  11. This whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
  12. It shall happen, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, says Yahweh, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans; and I will make it desolate forever.
  13. I will bring on that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations.
  14. For many nations and great kings shall make bondservants of them, even of them; and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the work of their hands.
  15. For thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, to me: take this cup of the wine of wrath at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it.
  16. They shall drink, and reel back and forth, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.
  17. Then took I the cup at Yahweh's hand, and made all the nations to drink, to whom Yahweh had sent me:
  18. [to wit], Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and its kings, and its princes, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse, as it is this day;
  19. Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people;
  20. and all the mixed people, and all the kings of the land of the Uz, and all the kings of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Gaza, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod;
  21. Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon;
  22. and all the kings of Tyre, and all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the isle which is beyond the sea;
  23. Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all who have the corners [of their hair] cut off;
  24. and all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mixed people who dwell in the wilderness;
  25. and all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes;
  26. and all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another; and all the kingdoms of the world, which are on the surface of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
  27. You shall tell them, Thus says Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel: Drink, and be drunk, vomit, fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.
  28. It shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, then you shall tell them, Thus says Yahweh of Armies: You shall surely drink.
  29. For, behold, I begin to work evil at the city which is called by my name; and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished; for I will call for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth, says Yahweh of Armies.
  30. Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and tell them, Yahweh will roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he will mightily roar against his fold; he will give a shout, as those who tread [the grapes], against all the inhabitants of the earth.
  31. A noise shall come even to the end of the earth; for Yahweh has a controversy with the nations; he will enter into judgment with all flesh: as for the wicked, he will give them to the sword, says Yahweh.
  32. Thus says Yahweh of Armies, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great storm shall be raised up from the uttermost parts of the earth.
  33. The slain of Yahweh shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.
  34. Wail, you shepherds, and cry; and wallow [in ashes], you principal of the flock; for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are fully come, and you shall fall like a goodly vessel.
  35. The shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.
  36. A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and the wailing of the principal of the flock! for Yahweh lays waste their pasture.
  37. The peaceable folds are brought to silence because of the fierce anger of Yahweh.
  38. He has left his covert, as the lion; for their land is become an astonishment because of the fierceness of the oppressing [sword], and because of his fierce anger.
Jeremiah 25 Text (Hebrew)
  1. הדבר אשר־היה על־ירמיהו על־כל־עם יהודה בשנה הרבעית ליהויקים בן־יאשיהו מלך יהודה היא השנה הראשנית לנבוכדראצר מלך בבל׃
  2. אשר דבר ירמיהו הנביא על־כל־עם יהודה ואל כל־ישבי ירושלם לאמר׃
  3. מן־שלש עשרה שנה ליאשיהו בן־אמון מלך יהודה ועד היום הזה זה שלש ועשרים שנה היה דבר־יהוה אלי ואדבר אליכם אשכים ודבר ולא שמעתם׃
  4. ושלח יהוה אליכם את־כל־עבדיו הנבאים השכם ושלח ולא שמעתם ולא־הטיתם את־אזנכם לשמע׃
  5. לאמר שובו־נא איש מדרכו הרעה ומרע מעלליכם ושבו על־האדמה אשר נתן יהוה לכם ולאבותיכם למן־עולם ועד־עולם׃
  6. ואל־תלכו אחרי אלהים אחרים לעבדם ולהשתחות להם ולא־תכעיסו אותי במעשה ידיכם ולא ארע לכם׃
  7. ולא־שמעתם אלי נאם־יהוה למען במעשה ידיכם לרע לכם׃ ס
  8. לכן כה אמר יהוה צבאות יען אשר לא־שמעתם את־דברי׃
  9. הנני שלח ולקחתי את־כל־משפחות צפון נאם־יהוה ואל־נבוכדראצר מלך־בבל עבדי והבאתים על־הארץ הזאת ועל־ישביה ועל כל־הגוים האלה סביב והחרמתים ושמתים לשמה ולשרקה ולחרבות עולם׃
  10. והאבדתי מהם קול ששון וקול שמחה קול חתן וקול כלה קול רחים ואור נר׃
  11. והיתה כל־הארץ הזאת לחרבה לשמה ועבדו הגוים האלה את־מלך בבל שבעים שנה׃
  12. והיה כמלאות שבעים שנה אפקד על־מלך־בבל ועל־הגוי ההוא נאם־יהוה את־עונם ועל־ארץ כשדים ושמתי אתו לשממות עולם׃
  13. על־הארץ ההיא את־כל־דברי אשר־דברתי עליה את כל־הכתוב בספר הזה אשר־נבא ירמיהו על־כל־הגוים׃
  14. כי עבדו־בם גם־המה גוים רבים ומלכים גדולים ושלמתי להם כפעלם וכמעשה ידיהם׃ ס
  15. כי כה אמר יהוה אלהי ישראל אלי קח את־כוס היין החמה הזאת מידי והשקיתה אתו את־כל־הגוים אשר אנכי שלח אותך אליהם׃
  16. ושתו והתגעשו והתהללו מפני החרב אשר אנכי שלח בינתם׃
  17. ואקח את־הכוס מיד יהוה ואשקה את־כל־הגוים אשר־שלחני יהוה אליהם׃
  18. את־ירושלם ואת־ערי יהודה ואת־מלכיה את־שריה לתת אתם לחרבה לשמה לשרקה ולקללה כיום הזה׃
  19. את־פרעה מלך־מצרים ואת־עבדיו ואת־שריו ואת־כל־עמו׃
  20. ואת כל־הערב ואת כל־מלכי ארץ העוץ ואת כל־מלכי ארץ פלשתים ואת־אשקלון ואת־עזה ואת־עקרון ואת שארית אשדוד׃
  21. את־אדום ואת־מואב ואת־בני עמון׃
  22. ואת כל־מלכי־צר ואת כל־מלכי צידון ואת מלכי האי אשר בעבר הים׃
  23. ואת־דדן ואת־תימא ואת־בוז ואת כל־קצוצי פאה׃
  24. ואת כל־מלכי ערב ואת כל־מלכי הערב השכנים במדבר׃
  25. ואת כל־מלכי זמרי ואת כל־מלכי עילם ואת כל־מלכי מדי׃
  26. ואת כל־מלכי הצפון הקרבים והרחקים איש אל־אחיו ואת כל־הממלכות הארץ אשר על־פני האדמה ומלך ששך ישתה אחריהם׃
  27. ואמרת אליהם ס כה־אמר יהוה צבאות אלהי ישראל שתו ושכרו וקיו ונפלו ולא תקומו מפני החרב אשר אנכי שלח ביניכם׃
  28. והיה כי ימאנו לקחת־הכוס מידך לשתות ואמרת אליהם כה אמר יהוה צבאות שתו תשתו׃
  29. כי הנה בעיר אשר נקרא־שמי עליה אנכי מחל להרע ואתם הנקה תנקו לא תנקו כי חרב אני קרא על־כל־ישבי הארץ נאם יהוה צבאות׃
  30. ואתה תנבא אליהם את כל־הדברים האלה ואמרת אליהם יהוה ממרום ישאג וממעון קדשו יתן קולו שאג ישאג על־נוהו הידד כדרכים יענה אל כל־ישבי הארץ׃
  31. בא שאון עד־קצה הארץ כי ריב ליהוה בגוים נשפט הוא לכל־בשר הרשעים נתנם לחרב נאם־יהוה׃ ס
  32. כה אמר יהוה צבאות הנה רעה יצאת מגוי אל־גוי וסער גדול יעור מירכתי־ארץ׃
  33. והיו חללי יהוה ביום ההוא מקצה הארץ ועד־קצה הארץ לא יספדו ולא יאספו ולא יקברו לדמן על־פני האדמה יהיו׃
  34. הילילו הרעים וזעקו והתפלשו אדירי הצאן כי־מלאו ימיכם לטבוח ותפוצותיכם ונפלתם ככלי חמדה׃
  35. ואבד מנוס מן־הרעים ופליטה מאדירי הצאן׃
  36. קול צעקת הרעים ויללת אדירי הצאן כי־שדד יהוה את־מרעיתם׃
  37. ונדמו נאות השלום מפני חרון אף־יהוה׃
  38. עזב ככפיר סכו כי־היתה ארצם לשמה מפני חרון היונה ומפני חרון אפו׃ ף

Jeremiah 25 Text (Latin)
  1. Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam, de omni populo Juda, in anno quarto Joakim, filii Josiæ, regis Juda (ipse est annus primus Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis),
  2. quod locutus est Jeremias propheta ad omnem populum Juda, et ad universos habitatores Jerusalem, dicens :
  3. A tertiodecimo anno Josiæ, filii Amon, regis Juda, usque ad diem hanc, iste tertius et vigesimus annus, factum est verbum Domini ad me, et locutus sum ad vos de nocte consurgens, et loquens, et non audistis.
  4. Et misit Dominus ad vos omnes servos suos prophetas, consurgens diluculo, mittensque : et non audistis, neque inclinastis aures vestras ut audiretis,
  5. cum diceret : Revertimini unusquisque a via sua mala, et a pessimis cogitationibus vestris, et habitabitis in terra quam dedit Dominus vobis et patribus vestris, a sæculo usque in sæculum :
  6. et nolite ire post deos alienos, ut serviatis eis adoretisque eos, neque me ad iracundiam provocetis in operibus manuum vestrarum, et non affligam vos.
  7. Et non audistis me, dicit Dominus, ut me ad iracundiam provocaretis in operibus manuum vestrarum, in malum vestrum.
  8. Propterea hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Pro eo quod non audistis verba mea,
  9. ecce ego mittam et assumam universas cognationes aquilonis, ait Dominus, et Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis servum meum, et adducam eos super terram istam, et super habitatores ejus, et super omnes nationes quæ in circuitu illius sunt : et interficiam eos, et ponam eos in stuporem et in sibilum, et in solitudines sempiternas.
  10. Perdamque ex eis vocem gaudii et vocem lætitiæ, vocem sponsi et vocem sponsæ, vocem molæ et lumen lucernæ.
  11. Et erit universa terra hæc in solitudinem, et in stuporem : et servient omnes gentes istæ regi Babylonis septuaginta annis.
  12. Cumque impleti fuerint septuaginta anni, visitabo super regem Babylonis et super gentem illam, dicit Dominus, iniquitatem eorum, et super terram Chaldæorum, et ponam illam in solitudines sempiternas.
  13. Et adducam super terram illam omnia verba mea, quæ locutus sum contra eam, omne quod scriptum est in libro isto, quæcumque prophetavit Jeremias adversum omnes gentes :
  14. quia servierunt eis, cum essent gentes multæ, et reges magni : et reddam eis secundum opera eorum, et secundum facta manuum suarum.
  15. Quia sic dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël : Sume calicem vini furoris hujus de manu mea, et propinabis de illo cunctis gentibus, ad quas ego mittam te.
  16. Et bibent, et turbabuntur et insanient a facie gladii quem ego mittam inter eos.
  17. Et accepi calicem de manu Domini, et propinavi cunctis gentibus ad quas misit me Dominus :
  18. Jerusalem, et civitatibus Juda, et regibus ejus, et principibus ejus, ut darem eos in solitudinem, et in stuporem, et in sibilum, et in maledictionem, sicut est dies ista :
  19. Pharaoni regi Ægypti, et servis ejus, et principibus ejus, et omni populo ejus :
  20. et universis generaliter cunctis regibus terræ Ausitidis, et cunctis regibus terræ Philisthiim, et Ascaloni, et Gazæ, et Accaron, et reliquiis Azoti :
  21. et Idumææ, et Moab, et filiis Ammon :
  22. et cunctis regibus Tyri, et universis regibus Sidonis, et regibus terræ insularum qui sunt trans mare :
  23. et Dedan, et Thema, et Buz, et universis qui attonsi sunt in comam :
  24. et cunctis regibus Arabiæ, et cunctis regibus occidentis, qui habitant in deserto :
  25. et cunctis regibus Zambri, et cunctis regibus Elam, et cunctis regibus Medorum :
  26. cunctis quoque regibus aquilonis, de prope et de longe, unicuique contra fratrem suum : et omnibus regnis terræ quæ super faciem ejus sunt : et rex Sesach bibet post eos.
  27. Et dices ad eos : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël : Bibite, et inebriamini, et vomite : et cadite, neque surgatis a facie gladii quem ego mittam inter vos.
  28. Cumque noluerint accipere calicem de manu tua ut bibant, dices ad eos : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Bibentes bibetis :
  29. quia ecce in civitate in qua invocatum est nomen meum ego incipiam affligere, et vos quasi innocentes et immunes eritis ? Non eritis immunes : gladium enim ego voco super omnes habitatores terræ, dicit Dominus exercituum.
  30. Et tu prophetabis ad eos omnia verba hæc, et dices ad illos : Dominus de excelso rugiet, et de habitaculo sancto suo dabit vocem suam : rugiens rugiet super decorem suum : celeuma quasi calcantium concinetur adversus omnes habitatores terræ.
  31. Pervenit sonitus usque ad extrema terræ, quia judicium Domino, cum gentibus : judicatur ipse cum omni carne. Impios tradidi gladio, dicit Dominus.
  32. Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Ecce afflictio egredietur de gente in gentem, et turbo magnus egredietur a summitatibus terræ.
  33. Et erunt interfecti Domini in die illa, a summo terræ usque ad summum ejus : non plangentur, et non colligentur, neque sepelientur : in sterquilinium super faciem terræ jacebunt.
  34. Ululate, pastores, et clamate : et aspergite vos cinere, optimates gregis, quia completi sunt dies vestri, ut interficiamini, et dissipationes vestræ : et cadetis quasi vasa pretiosa.
  35. Et peribit fuga a pastoribus, et salvatio ab optimatibus gregis.
  36. Vox clamoris pastorum et ululatus optimatum gregis, quia vastavit Dominus pascua eorum :
  37. et conticuerunt arva pacis a facie iræ furoris Domini.
  38. Dereliquit quasi leo umbraculum suum, quia facta est terra eorum in desolationem a facie iræ columbæ, et a facie iræ furoris Domini.
Jeremiah 25 Text (KJV)
  1. The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon;
  2. The which Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the people of Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,
  3. From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of the LORD hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened.
  4. And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.
  5. They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever:
  6. And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.
  7. Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.
  8. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not heard my words,
  9. Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations.
  10. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.
  11. And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
  12. And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
  13. And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations.
  14. For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.
  15. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it.
  16. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.
  17. Then took I the cup at the LORD's hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:
  18. To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day;
  19. Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people;
  20. And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
  21. Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon,
  22. And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea,
  23. Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners,
  24. And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert,
  25. And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes,
  26. And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
