1 Then said the Lord to me, Go and get an earthen bottle, the work of the potter, and thou shalt bring [some] of the elders of the people, and of the priests; 2 and thou shalt go forth to the burial-place of the sons of their children, which is at the entrance of the gate of Charsith; and do thou read there all these words which I shall speak to thee: 3 and thou shalt say to them, Hear ye the word of the Lord, ye kings of Juda, and men of Juda, and the dwellers in Jerusalem, and they that enter in by these gates; thus saith the Lord God of Israel; Behold, I [will] bring evil upon this place, so that the ears of every one that hears it shall tingle. 4 Because they forsook me, and profaned this place, and burnt incense in it to strange gods, which they and their fathers knew not; and the kings of Juda have filled this place with innocent blood, 5 and built high places for Baal, to burn their children in the fire, which things I commanded not, neither did I design [them] in my heart: 6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when this place shall no more be called, The fall and burial-place of the son of Ennom, but, The burial-place of slaughter. 7 And I will destroy the counsel of Juda and the counsel of Jerusalem in this place; and I will cast them down with the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and I will give their dead bodies for food to the birds of the sky and to the wild beasts of the earth. 8 And I will bring this city to desolation and [make it] a hissing; every one that passes by it shall scowl, and hiss because of all her plague. 9 And they shall eat the flesh of their sons, and the flesh of their daughters; and they shall eat every one the flesh of his neighbour in the blockade, and in the siege wherewith their enemies shall besiege them. 10 And thou shalt break the bottle in the sight of the men that go forth with thee, 11 and thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord, Thus will I break in pieces this people, and this city, even as an earthen vessel is broken in pieces which cannot be mended again. 12 Thus will I do, saith the Lord, to this place, and to the inhabitants of it, that this city may be given up, as one that is falling to ruin. 13 And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Juda shall be as a ruinous place, because of their uncleannesses in all the houses, wherein they burnt incense upon their roofs to all the host of heaven, and poured drink-offerings to strange gods. 14 And Jeremias came from [the place] of the Fall, whither the Lord had sent him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the Lord’s house: and said to all the people, Thus saith the Lord; 15 Behold I bring upon this city, and upon all the cities belonging to it, and upon the villages of it, all the evils which I have spoken against it, because they have hardened their neck, [that they might not] hearken to my commands. ΤΟΤΕ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· βάδισον καὶ κτῆσαι βῖκον πεπλασμένον ὀστράκινον καὶ ἄξεις ἀπὸ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἱερέων, 2 καὶ ἐξελεύσῃ εἰς τὸ πολυάνδριον υἱῶν τῶν τέκνων αὐτῶν, ὅ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τῶν προθύρων πύλης τῆς Χαρσείθ, καὶ ἀνάγνωθι ἐκεῖ πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους, οὓς ἂν λαλήσω πρὸς σέ, 3 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς· ἀκούσατε τὸν λόγον Κυρίου, βασιλεῖς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἄνδρες ᾿Ιούδα καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι ἐν ταῖς πύλαις ταύταις· τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον κακά, ὥστε παντὸς ἀκούοντος αὐτὰ ἠχήσει τὰ ὦτα αὐτοῦ, 4 ἀνθ’ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπόν με καὶ ἀπηλλοτρίωσαν τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐθυμίασαν ἐν αὐτῷ θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις, οἷς οὐκ ᾔδεισαν αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν, καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς ᾿Ιούδα ἔπλησαν τὸν τόπον τοῦτον αἱμάτων ἀθῴων 5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν ὑψηλὰ τῇ Βάαλ τοῦ κατακαίειν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν πυρί, ἃ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην οὐδὲ διενοήθην ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ μου. 6 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ οὐ κληθήσεται τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ἔτι Διάπτωσις καὶ Πολυάνδριον υἱοῦ ᾿Εννόμ, ἀλλ’ ἢ Πολυάνδριον τῆς σφαγῆς. 7 καὶ σφάξω τὴν βουλὴν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ τὴν βουλὴν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ καταβαλῶ αὐτοὺς ἐν μαχαίρᾳ ἐναντίον τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν χερσὶ τῶν ζητούντων τὰς ψυχὰς αὐτῶν, καὶ δώσω τοὺς νεκροὺς αὐτῶν εἰς βρῶσιν τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς. 8 καὶ τάξω τὴν πόλιν ταύτην εἰς ἀφανισμὸν καὶ εἰς συριγμόν· πᾶς ὁ παραπορευόμενος ἐπ’ αὐτῆς σκυθρωπάσει καὶ συριεῖ ὑπὲρ πάσης τῆς πληγῆς αὐτῆς. 9 καὶ ἔδονται τὰς σάρκας τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς σάρκας τῶν θυγατέρων αὐτῶν, καὶ ἕκαστος τὰς σάρκας τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἔδονται ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ καὶ ἐν τῇ πολιορκίᾳ, ᾗ πολιορκήσουσιν αὐτοὺς οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῶν. 10 καὶ συντρίψεις τὸν βῖκον κατ’ ὀφθαλμοὺς τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν ἐκπορευομένων μετά σοῦ 11 καὶ ἐρεῖς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· οὕτως συντρίψω τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον, καὶ τὴν πόλιν ταύτην, καθὼς συντρίβεται ἄγγος ὀστράκινον, ὃ οὐ δυνήσεται ἰαθῆναι ἔτι. 12 οὕτως ποιήσω, λέγει Κύριος, τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν ἐν αὐτῷ τοῦ δοθῆναι τὴν πόλιν ταύτην ὡς τὴν διαπίπτουσαν. 13 καὶ οἶκοι ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ οἶκοι βασιλέων ᾿Ιούδα ἔσονται καθὼς ὁ τόπος ὁ διαπίπτων ἀπὸ τῶν ἀκαθαρσιῶν αὐτῶν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς οἰκίαις, ἐν αἷς ἐθυμίασαν ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων αὐτῶν πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσπεισαν σπονδὰς θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις. - 14 Καὶ ἦλθεν ῾Ιερεμίας ἀπὸ τῆς διαπτώσεως, οὗ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτὸν Κύριος ἐκεῖ τοῦ προφητεῦσαι, καὶ ἔστη ἐν τῇ αὐλῇ οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ εἶπε πρὸς πάντα τὸν λαόν· 15 τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν ταύτην καὶ ἐπὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς ἅπαντα τὰ κακά, ἃ ἐλάλησα ἐπ’ αὐτήν, ὅτι ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν τοῦ μὴ εἰσακούειν τῶν ἐντολῶν μου.
