Jeremiah 3 Text (WEB)
  1. "They say, 'If a man puts away his wife, and she goes from him, and become another man's, will he return to her again?' Wouldn't that land be greatly polluted? But you have played the prostitute with many lovers; yet return again to me," says Yahweh.
  2. "Lift up your eyes to the bare heights, and see! Where have you not been lain with? You have sat for them by the ways, as an Arabian in the wilderness. You have polluted the land with your prostitution and with your wickedness.
  3. Therefore the showers have been withheld, and there has been no latter rain; yet you have a prostitute's forehead, you refused to be ashamed.
  4. Will you not from this time cry to me, 'My Father, you are the guide of my youth?'
  5. "'Will he retain [his anger] forever? Will he keep it to the end?' Behold, you have spoken and have done evil things, and have had your way."
  6. Moreover, Yahweh said to me in the days of Josiah the king, "Have you seen that which backsliding Israel has done? She has gone up on every high mountain and under every green tree, and there has played the prostitute.
  7. I said after she had done all these things, 'She will return to me;' but she didn't return; and her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
  8. I saw, when, for this very cause that backsliding Israel had committed adultery, I had put her away and given her a bill of divorce, yet treacherous Judah, her sister, didn't fear; but she also went and played the prostitute.
  9. It happened through the lightness of her prostitution, that the land was polluted, and she committed adultery with stones and with stocks.
  10. Yet for all this her treacherous sister, Judah, has not returned to me with her whole heart, but only in pretense," says Yahweh.
  11. Yahweh said to me, "Backsliding Israel has shown herself more righteous than treacherous Judah.
  12. Go, and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, 'Return, you backsliding Israel,' says Yahweh; 'I will not look in anger on you; for I am merciful,' says Yahweh. 'I will not keep [anger] forever.
  13. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against Yahweh your God, and have scattered your ways to the strangers under every green tree, and you have not obeyed my voice,' says Yahweh."
  14. "Return, backsliding children," says Yahweh; "for I am a husband to you. I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion.
  15. I will give you shepherds according to my heart, who shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
  16. It shall come to pass, when you are multiplied and increased in the land, in those days," says Yahweh, "they shall say no more, 'The ark of the covenant of Yahweh!' neither shall it come to mind; neither shall they remember it; neither shall they miss it; neither shall it be made any more.
  17. At that time they shall call Jerusalem 'The throne of Yahweh;' and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of Yahweh, to Jerusalem. Neither shall they walk any more after the stubbornness of their evil heart.
  18. In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I gave for an inheritance to your fathers.
  19. "But I said, 'How I would put you among the children, and give you a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the armies of the nations!' and I said, 'You shall call me "My Father," and shall not turn away from following me.'
  20. "Surely as a wife treacherously departs from her husband, so you have dealt treacherously with me, house of Israel," says Yahweh.
  21. A voice is heard on the bare heights, the weeping [and] the petitions of the children of Israel; because they have perverted their way, they have forgotten Yahweh their God.
  22. Return, you backsliding children, I will heal your backsliding. "Behold, we have come to you; for you are Yahweh our God.
  23. Truly in vain is [the help that is looked for] from the hills, the tumult on the mountains. Truly the salvation of Israel is in Yahweh our God.
  24. But the shameful thing has devoured the labor of our fathers from our youth, their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.
  25. Let us lie down in our shame, and let our confusion cover us; for we have sinned against Yahweh our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even to this day. We have not obeyed the voice of Yahweh our God."
Jeremiah 3 Text (Hebrew)
  1. לאמר הן ישלח איש את־אשתו והלכה מאתו והיתה לאיש־אחר הישוב אליה עוד הלוא חנוף תחנף הארץ ההיא ואת זנית רעים רבים ושוב אלי נאם־יהוה׃
  2. שאי־עיניך על־שפים וראי איפה לא על־דרכים ישבת להם כערבי במדבר ותחניפי ארץ בזנותיך וברעתך׃
  3. וימנעו רבבים ומלקוש לוא היה ומצח אשה זונה היה לך מאנת הכלם׃
  4. הלוא מעתה לי אבי אלוף נערי אתה׃
  5. הינטר לעולם אם־ישמר לנצח הנה ותעשי הרעות ותוכל׃ ף
  6. ויאמר יהוה אלי בימי יאשיהו המלך הראית אשר עשתה משבה ישראל הלכה היא על־כל־הר גבה ואל־תחת כל־עץ רעןן ותזני־שם׃
  7. ואמר אחרי עשותה את־כל־אלה אלי תשוב ולא־שבה בגודה אחותה יהודה׃
  8. וארא כי על־כל־אדות אשר נאפה משבה ישראל שלחתיה ואתן את־ספר כריתתיה אליה ולא יראה בגדה יהודה אחותה ותלך ותזן גם־היא׃
  9. והיה מקל זנותה ותחנף את־הארץ ותנאף את־האבן ואת־העץ׃
  10. וגם־בכל־זאת לא־שבה אלי בגודה אחותה יהודה בכל־לבה כי אם־בשקר נאם־יהוה׃ ף
  11. ויאמר יהוה אלי צדקה נפשה משבה ישראל מבגדה יהודה׃
  12. הלך וקראת את־הדברים האלה צפונה ואמרת שובה משבה ישראל נאם־יהוה לוא־אפיל פני בכם כי־חסיד אני נאם־יהוה לא אטור לעולם׃
  13. אך דעי עונך כי ביהוה אלהיך פשעת ותפזרי את־דרכיך לזרים תחת כל־עץ רעןן ובקולי לא־שמעתם נאם־יהוה׃
  14. שובו בנים שובבים נאם־יהוה כי אנכי בעלתי בכם ולקחתי אתכם אחד מעיר ושנים ממשפחה והבאתי אתכם ציון׃
  15. ונתתי לכם רעים כלבי ורעו אתכם דעה והשכיל׃
  16. והיה כי תרבו ופריתם בארץ בימים ההמה נאם־יהוה לא־יאמרו עוד ארון ברית־יהוה ולא יעלה על־לב ולא יזכרו־בו ולא יפקדו ולא יעשה עוד׃
  17. בעת ההיא יקראו לירושלם כסא יהוה ונקוו אליה כל־הגוים לשם יהוה לירושלם ולא־ילכו עוד אחרי שררות לבם הרע׃ ס
  18. בימים ההמה ילכו בית־יהודה על־בית ישראל ויבאו יחדו מארץ צפון על־הארץ אשר הנחלתי את־אבותיכם׃
  19. ואנכי אמרתי איך אשיתך בבנים ואתן־לך ארץ חמדה נחלת צבי צבאות גוים ואמר אבי ־לי ־לי ומאחרי לא ׃
  20. אכן בגדה אשה מרעה כן בגדתם בי בית ישראל נאם־יהוה׃
  21. קול על־שפיים נשמע בכי תחנוני בני ישראל כי העוו את־דרכם שכחו את־יהוה אלהיהם׃
  22. שובו בנים שובבים ארפה משובתיכם הננו אתנו לך כי אתה יהוה אלהינו׃
  23. אכן לשקר מגבעות המון הרים אכן ביהוה אלהינו תשועת ישראל׃
  24. והבשת אכלה את־יגיע אבותינו מנעורינו את־צאנם ואת־בקרם את־בניהם ואת־בנותיהם׃
  25. נשכבה בבשתנו ותכסנו כלמתנו כי ליהוה אלהינו חטאנו אנחנו ואבותינו מנעורינו ועד־היום הזה ולא שמענו בקול יהוה אלהינו׃ ס
Jeremiah 3 Text (Greek)
  1. εαν εξαποστειλη ανηρ την γυναικα αυτου και απελθη απ' αυτου και γενηται ανδρι ετερω μη ανακαμπτουσα ανακαμψει προς αυτον ετι ου μιαινομενη μιανθησεται η γυνη εκεινη και συ εξεπορνευσας εν ποιμεσιν πολλοις και ανεκαμπτες προς με λεγει
  2. αρον εις ευθειαν τους οφθαλμους σου και ιδε που ουχι εξεφυρθης επι ταις οδοις εκαθισας αυτοις ωσει κορωνη ερημουμενη και εμιανας την γην εν ταις πορνειαις σου και εν ταις κακιαις
  3. και εσχες ποιμενας πολλους εις προσκομμα σεαυτη οψις πορνης εγενετο σοι απηναισχυντησας προς
  4. ουχ ως οικον με εκαλεσας και πατερα και αρχηγον της παρθενιας
  5. μη διαμενει εις τον αιωνα η διαφυλαχθησεται εις νεικος ιδου ελαλησας και εποιησας τα πονηρα ταυτα και
  6. και ειπεν κυριος προς με εν ταις ημεραις ιωσια του βασιλεως ειδες α εποιησεν μοι η κατοικια του ισραηλ επορευθησαν επι παν ορος υψηλον και υποκατω παντος ξυλου αλσωδους και επορνευσαν
  7. και ειπα μετα το πορνευσαι αυτην ταυτα παντα προς με αναστρεψον και ουκ ανεστρεψεν και ειδεν την ασυνθεσιαν αυτης η ασυνθετος
  8. και ειδον διοτι περι παντων ων κατελημφθη εν οις εμοιχατο η κατοικια του ισραηλ και εξαπεστειλα αυτην και εδωκα αυτη βιβλιον αποστασιου εις τας χειρας αυτης και ουκ εφοβηθη η ασυνθετος ιουδα και επορευθη και επορνευσεν και
  9. και εγενετο εις ουθεν η πορνεια αυτης και εμοιχευσεν το ξυλον και τον
  10. και εν πασιν τουτοις ουκ επεστραφη προς με η ασυνθετος ιουδα εξ ολης της καρδιας αυτης αλλ' επι
  11. και ειπεν κυριος προς με εδικαιωσεν την ψυχην αυτου ισραηλ απο της ασυνθετου
  12. πορευου και αναγνωθι τους λογους τουτους προς βορραν και ερεις επιστραφητι προς με η κατοικια του ισραηλ λεγει κυριος και ου στηριω το προσωπον μου εφ' υμας οτι ελεημων εγω ειμι λεγει κυριος και ου μηνιω υμιν εις τον
  13. πλην γνωθι την αδικιαν σου οτι εις κυριον τον θεον σου ησεβησας και διεχεας τας οδους σου εις αλλοτριους υποκατω παντος ξυλου αλσωδους της δε φωνης μου ουχ υπηκουσας λεγει
  14. επιστραφητε υιοι αφεστηκοτες λεγει κυριος διοτι εγω κατακυριευσω υμων και λημψομαι υμας ενα εκ πολεως και δυο εκ πατριας και εισαξω υμας εις
  15. και δωσω υμιν ποιμενας κατα την καρδιαν μου και ποιμανουσιν υμας ποιμαινοντες μετ'
  16. και εσται εαν πληθυνθητε και αυξηθητε επι της γης εν ταις ημεραις εκειναις λεγει κυριος ουκ ερουσιν ετι κιβωτος διαθηκης αγιου ισραηλ ουκ αναβησεται επι καρδιαν ουκ ονομασθησεται ουδε επισκεφθησεται και ου ποιηθησεται
  17. εν ταις ημεραις εκειναις και εν τω καιρω εκεινω καλεσουσιν την ιερουσαλημ θρονος κυριου και συναχθησονται εις αυτην παντα τα εθνη και ου πορευσονται ετι οπισω των ενθυμηματων της καρδιας αυτων της
  18. εν ταις ημεραις εκειναις συνελευσονται οικος ιουδα επι τον οικον του ισραηλ και ηξουσιν επι το αυτο απο γης βορρα και απο πασων των χωρων επι την γην ην κατεκληρονομησα τους πατερας
  19. και εγω ειπα γενοιτο κυριε οτι ταξω σε εις τεκνα και δωσω σοι γην εκλεκτην κληρονομιαν θεου παντοκρατορος εθνων και ειπα πατερα καλεσετε με και απ' εμου ουκ
  20. πλην ως αθετει γυνη εις τον συνοντα αυτη ουτως ηθετησεν εις εμε οικος ισραηλ λεγει
  21. φωνη εκ χειλεων ηκουσθη κλαυθμου και δεησεως υιων ισραηλ οτι ηδικησαν εν ταις οδοις αυτων επελαθοντο θεου αγιου
  22. επιστραφητε υιοι επιστρεφοντες και ιασομαι τα συντριμματα υμων ιδου δουλοι ημεις εσομεθα σοι οτι συ κυριος ο θεος ημων
  23. οντως εις ψευδος ησαν οι βουνοι και η δυναμις των ορεων πλην δια κυριου θεου ημων η σωτηρια του
  24. η δε αισχυνη καταναλωσεν τους μοχθους των πατερων ημων απο νεοτητος ημων τα προβατα αυτων και τους μοσχους αυτων και τους υιους αυτων και τας θυγατερας
  25. εκοιμηθημεν εν τη αισχυνη ημων και επεκαλυψεν ημας η ατιμια ημων διοτι εναντι του θεου ημων ημαρτομεν ημεις και οι πατερες ημων απο νεοτητος ημων εως της ημερας ταυτης και ουχ υπηκουσαμεν της φωνης κυριου του θεου
Jeremiah 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Vulgo dicitur : Si dimiserit vir uxorem suam, et recedens ab eo duxerit virum alterum, numquid revertetur ad eam ultra ? numquid non polluta et contaminata erit mulier illa ? Tu autem fornicatus es cum amatoribus multis : tamen revertere ad me, dicit Dominus, et ego suscipiam te.
  2. Leva oculos tuos in directum, et vide ubi non prostrata sis. In viis sedebas, exspectans eos quasi latro in solitudine : et polluisti terram in fornicationibus tuis, et in malitiis tuis.
  3. Quam ob rem prohibitæ sunt stillæ pluviarum, et serotinus imber non fuit. Frons mulieris meretricis facta est tibi, noluisti erubescere.
  4. Ergo saltem amodo voca me : Pater meus, dux virginitatis meæ tu es :
  5. numquid irasceris in perpetuum, aut perseverabis in finem ? ecce locuta es, et fecisti mala, et potuisti.
  6. Et dixit Dominus ad me in diebus Josiæ regis : Numquid vidisti quæ fecerit aversatrix Israël ? Abiit sibimet super omnem montem excelsum, et sub omni ligno frondoso, et formicata est ibi.
  7. Et dixi, cum fecisset hæc omnia : Ad me revertere : et non est reversa. Et vidit prævaricatrix soror ejus, Juda,
  8. quia pro eo quod mœchata esset aversatrix Israël, dimisissem eam, et dedissem ei libellum repudii : et non timuit prævaricatrix Juda, soror ejus, sed abiit, et fornicata est etiam ipsa :
  9. et facilitate fornicationis suæ contaminavit terram, et mœchata est cum lapide et ligno :
  10. et in omnibus his non est reversa ad me prævaricatrix soror ejus Juda, in toto corde suo, sed in mendacio, ait Dominus.
  11. Et dixit Dominus ad me : Justificavit animam suam aversatrix Israël, comparatione prævaricatricis Judæ.
  12. Vade, et clama sermones istos contra aquilonem, et dices : Revertere, aversatrix Israël, ait Dominus, et non avertam faciem meam a vobis, quia Sanctus ego sum, dicit Dominus, et non irascar in perpetuum.
  13. Verumtamen scito iniquitatem tuam, quia in Dominum Deum tuum prævaricata es, et dispersisti vias tuas alienis sub omni ligno frondoso, et vocem meam non audisti, ait Dominus.
  14. Convertimini, filii revertentes, dicit Dominus, quia ego vir vester : et assumam vos unum de civitate, et duos de cognatione, et introducam vos in Sion.
  15. Et dabo vobis pastores juxta cor meum, et pascent vos scientia et doctrina.
  16. Cumque multiplicati fueritis, et creveritis in terra in diebus illis, ait Dominus, non dicent ultra : Arca testamenti Domini : neque ascendet super cor, neque recordabuntur illius, nec visitabitur, nec fiet ultra.
  17. In tempore illo vocabunt Jerusalem solium Domini : et congregabuntur ad eam omnes gentes in nomine Domini in Jerusalem, et non ambulabunt post pravitatem cordis sui pessimi.
  18. In diebus illis ibit domus Juda ad domum Israël, et venient simul de terra aquilonis ad terram quam dedi patribus vestris.
  19. Ego autem dixi : Quomodo ponam te in filios, et tribuam tibi terram desiderabilem, hæreditatem præclaram exercituum gentium ? Et dixi : Patrem vocabis me, et post me ingredi non cessabis.
  20. Sed quomodo si contemnat mulier amatorem suum, sic contempsit me domus Israël, dicit Dominus.
  21. Vox in viis audita est, ploratus et ululatus filiorum Israël, quoniam iniquam fecerunt viam suam, obliti sunt Domini Dei sui.
  22. Convertimini, filii revertentes, et sanabo aversiones vestras. Ecce nos venimus ad te : tu enim es Dominus Deus noster.
  23. Vere mendaces erant colles et multitudo montium : vere in Domino Deo nostro salus Israël.
  24. Confusio comedit laborem patrum nostrorum ab adolescentia nostra, greges eorum, et armenta eorum, filios eorum, et filias eorum.
  25. Dormiemus in confusione nostra, et operiet nos ignominia nostra, quoniam Domino Deo nostro peccavimus nos, et patres nostri, ab adolescentia nostra usque ad diem hanc, et non audivimus vocem Domini Dei nostri.
Jeremiah 3 Text (KJV)
  1. They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD.
  2. Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness.
  3. Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.
  4. Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
  5. Will he reserve his anger for ever? will he keep it to the end? Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest.
  6. The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.
  7. And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
  8. And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
  9. And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.
  10. And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
  11. And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.
  12. Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever.
  13. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.
  14. Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
  15. And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
  16. And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.
  17. At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.
  18. In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.
  19. But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.
  20. Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.
  21. A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the LORD their God.
  22. Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God.
  23. Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the LORD our God is the salvation of Israel.
  24. For shame hath devoured the labour of our fathers from our youth; their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.
  25. We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.
