1 Thus saith the Lord; Go thou, and go down to the house of the king of Juda, and thou shalt speak there this word, 2 and thou shalt say, Hear the word of the Lord, O king of Juda, that sittest on the throne of David, thou, and thy house, and thy people, and they that go in at these gates: 3 thus saith the Lord; Execute ye judgment and justice, and rescue the spoiled out of the hand of him that wrongs him: and oppress not the stranger, and orphan, and widow, and sin not, and shed no innocent blood in this place. 4 For if ye will indeed perform this word, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, and riding on chariots and horses, they, and their servants, and their people. 5 But if ye will not perform these words, by myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, that this house shall be [brought] to desolation. 6 For thus saith the Lord concerning the house of the king of Juda; Thou art Galaad to me, [and] the head of Libanus: [yet] surely I will make thee a desert, [even] cities that shall not be inhabited: 7 and I will bring upon thee a destroying man, and his axe: and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, and cast [them] into the fire. 8 And nations shall pass through this city, and each shall say to his neighbour, Why has the Lord done thus to this great city? 9 And they shall say Because they forsook the covenant of the Lord their God, and worshipped strange gods, and served them. 10 Weep not for the dead, nor lament for him: weep bitterly for him that goes away: for he shall return no more, nor see his native land. 11 For thus saith the Lord concerning Sellem the son of Josias, who reigns in the place of Josias his father, who has gone forth out of this place; He shall not return thither any more: 12 but in that place whither I have carried him captive, there shall he die, and shall see this land no more. 13 He that builds his house not with justice, and his upper chambers not with judgment, who works by means of his neighbour for nothing, and will by no means give him his reward. 14 Thou hast built for thyself a well-proportioned house, airy chambers, fitted with windows, and wainscoted with cedar, and painted with vermilion. 15 Shalt thou reign, because thou art provoked with thy father Achaz? they shall not eat, and they shall not drink: it is better for thee to execute judgment and justice. 16 They understood not, they judged not the cause of the afflicted, nor the cause of the poor: is not this thy not knowing me? saith the Lord. 17 Behold, thine eyes are not good, nor thine heart, but [they go] after thy covetousness, and after the innocent blood to shed it, and after acts of injustice and slaughter, to commit them. 18 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning Joakim son of Josias, king of Juda, even concerning this man; they shall not bewail him, [saying], Ah brother! neither shall they at all weep for him, [saying], Alas Lord. 19 He shall be buried with the burial of an ass; he shall be dragged roughly along and cast outside the gate of Jerusalem. 20 Go up to Libanus, and cry; and utter thy voice to Basan, and cry aloud to the extremity of the sea: for all thy lovers are destroyed. 21 I spoke to thee on [occasion of] thy trespass, but thou saidst, I will not hearken. This [has been] thy way from thy youth, thou hast not hearkened to my voice. 22 The wind shall tend all thy shepherds, and thy lovers shall go into captivity; for then shalt thou be ashamed and disgraced because of all thy lovers. 23 O thou that dwellest in Libanus, making thy nest in the cedars, thou shalt groan heavily, when pangs as of a travailing woman are come upon thee. 24 [As] I live, saith the Lord, though Jechonias son of Joakim king of Juda were indeed the seal upon my right hand, thence would I pluck thee; 25 and I will deliver thee into the hands of them that seek thy life, before whom thou art afraid, into the hands of the Chaldeans. 26 And I will cast forth thee, and thy mother that bore thee, into a land where thou wast not born; and there ye shall die. 27 But they shall by no means return to the land which they long for in their souls. 28 Jechonias is dishonoured as a good-for-nothing vessel; for he is thrown out and cast forth into a land which he knew not. 29 Land, land, hear the word of the Lord. 30 Write ye this man an outcast: for there shall none of his seed at all grow up to sit on the throne of David, [or as] a prince yet in Juda. ΤΑΔΕ λέγει Κύριος· πορεύου καὶ κατάβηθι εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα καὶ λαλήσεις ἐκεῖ τὸν λόγον τοῦτον 2 καὶ ἐρεῖς· ἄκουε λόγον Κυρίου, βασιλεῦ ᾿Ιούδα ὁ καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυίδ, σὺ καὶ ὁ οἶκός σου καὶ ὁ λαός σου καὶ οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι ταῖς πύλαις ταύταις· 3 τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ποιεῖτε κρίσιν καὶ δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἐξαιρεῖσθε διηρπασμένον ἐκ χειρὸς ἀδικοῦντος αὐτὸν καὶ προσήλυτον καὶ ὀρφανὸν καὶ χήραν μὴ καταδυναστεύετε καὶ μὴ ἀσεβῆτε καὶ αἷμα ἀθῷον μὴ ἐκχέητε ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ. 4 διότι ἐὰν ποιοῦντες ποιήσητε τὸν λόγον τοῦτον, καὶ εἰσελεύσονται ἐν ταῖς πύλαις τοῦ οἴκου τούτου βασιλεῖς καθήμενοι ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐπιβεβηκότες ἐφ’ ἁρμάτων καὶ ἵππων, αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτῶν, καὶ ὁ λαὸς αὐτῶν· 5 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ποιήσητε τοὺς λόγους τούτους, κατ’ ἐμαυτοῦ ὤμοσα, λέγει Κύριος, ὅτι εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἔσται ὁ οἶκος οὗτος. 6 ὅτι τάδε λέγει Κύριος κατὰ τοῦ οἴκου βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα· Γαλαὰδ σύ μοι, ἀρχὴ τοῦ Λιβάνου, ἐὰν μὴ θῶ σε εἰς ἔρημον, πόλεις μὴ κατοικηθησομένας· 7 καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπὶ σὲ ὀλοθρεύοντα ἄνδρα καὶ τὸν πέλεκυν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐκκόψουσι τὰς ἐκλεκτὰς κέδρους σου καὶ ἐμβαλοῦσιν εἰς τὸ πῦρ. 8 καὶ διελεύσονται ἔθνη διὰ τῆς πόλεως ταύτης καὶ ἐρεῖ ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ· διατί ἐποίησε Κύριος οὕτως τῇ πόλει ταύτῃ τῇ μεγάλῃ; 9 καὶ ἐροῦσιν· ἀνθ’ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπον τὴν διαθήκην Κυρίου Θεοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ προσεκύνησαν θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτοῖς. 10 Μὴ κλαίετε τὸν τεθνηκότα μηδὲ θρηνεῖτε αὐτόν· κλαύσατε κλαυμῷ τὸν ἐκπορευόμενον, ὅτι οὐκ ἐπιστρέψει ἔτι, οὐδὲ ὄψεται τὴν γῆν πατρίδος αὐτοῦ. 11 διότι τάδε λέγει Κύριος ἐπὶ Σελλὴμ υἱὸν ᾿Ιωσία τὸν βασιλεύοντα ἀντὶ ᾿Ιωσίου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ὃς ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου τούτου· οὐκ ἀναστρέψει ἐκεῖ ἔτι, 12 ἀλλ’ ἢ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ, οὗ μετῴκισα αὐτόν, ἐκεῖ ἀποθανεῖται καὶ τὴν γῆν ταύτην οὐκ ὄψεται ἔτι. - 13 ῏Ω ὁ οἰκοδομῶν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ οὐ μετὰ δικαιοσύνης καὶ τὰ ὑπερῷα αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐν κρίματι, παρὰ τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἐργᾶται δωρεὰν καὶ τὸν μισθὸν αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ ἀποδώσει αὐτῷ. 14 ᾠκοδόμησας σεαυτῷ οἶκον σύμμετρον, ὑπερῷα ῥιπιστὰ διεσταλμένα θυρίσι καὶ ἐξυλωμένα ἐν κέδρῳ καὶ κεχρισμένα ἐν μίλτῳ. 15 μὴ βασιλεύσῃς, ὅτι σὺ παροξύνῃ ἐν ῎Αχαζ τῷ πατρί σου; οὐ φάγονται καὶ οὐ πίονται· βέλτιον ἦν σὲ ποιεῖν κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην. 16 οὐκ ἔγνωσαν, οὐκ ἔκριναν κρίσιν ταπεινῷ οὐδὲ κρίσιν πένητος· οὐ τοῦτό ἐστι τὸ μὴ γνῶναί σε ἐμέ, λέγει Κύριος; 17 ἰδοὺ οὐκ εἰσὶν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου οὐδὲ ἡ καρδία σου καλή, ἀλλὰ εἰς τὴν πλεονεξίαν σου καὶ εἰς τὸ αἷμα τὸ ἀθῷον τοῦ ἐκχέειν αὐτὸ καὶ εἰς ἀδικήματα καὶ εἰς φόνον τοῦ ποιεῖν αὐτά. 18 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει Κύριος ἐπὶ ᾿Ιωακεὶμ υἱὸν ᾿Ιωσία βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα· οὐαὶ ἐπὶ τὸν ἄνδρα τοῦτον· οὐ μὴ κόψονται αὐτόν· ὦ ἀδελφέ, οὐδὲ μὴ κλαύσονται αὐτόν· οἴμοι Κύριε. 19 ταφὴν ὄνου ταφήσεται, συμψηθεὶς ριφήσεται ἐπέκεινα τῆς πύλης ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. - 20 ᾿Ανάβηθι εἰς τὸν Λίβανον καὶ κράξον καὶ εἰς τὴν Βασὰν δὸς τὴν φωνήν σου καὶ βόησον εἰς τὸ πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης, ὅτι συνετρίβησαν πάντες οἱ ἐρασταί σου. 21 ἐλάλησα πρὸς σὲ ἐν τῇ παραπτώσει σου, καὶ εἶπας· οὐκ ἀκούσομαι· αὕτη ἡ ὁδός σου ἐκ νεότητός σου, οὐκ ἤκουσας τῆς φωνῆς μου. 22 πάντας τοὺς ποιμένας σου ποιμανεῖ ἄνεμος, καὶ οἱ ἐρασταί σου ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ ἐξελεύσονται· ὅτι τότε αἰσχυνθήσῃ καὶ ἀτιμωθήσῃ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν φιλούντων σε. 23 κατοικοῦσα ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ, ἐννοσσεύουσα ἐν ταῖς κέδροις, καταστενάξεις ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν σοι ὀδύνας ὡς τικτούσης. 24 ζῶ ἐγώ, λέγει Κύριος, ἐὰν γενόμενος γένηται ᾿Ιεχονίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωακεὶμ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα ἀποσφράγισμα ἐπὶ τῆς χειρὸς τῆς δεξιᾶς μου, ἐκεῖθεν ἐκσπάσω σε 25 καὶ παραδώσω σε εἰς χεῖρας τῶν ζητούντων τὴν ψυχήν σου, ὧν σὺ εὐλαβῇ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν, εἰς χεῖρας τῶν Χαλδαίων· 26 καὶ ἀπορρίψω σε καὶ τὴν μητέρα σου τὴν τεκοῦσάν σε εἰς γῆν, οὗ οὐκ ἐτέχθης ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἀποθανεῖσθε. 27 εἰς δὲ τὴν γῆν, ἣν αὐτοὶ εὔχονται ταῖς ψυχαῖς αὐτῶν, οὐ μὴ ἀποστρέψωσιν. 28 ἠτιμώθη ᾿Ιεχονίας ὡς σκεῦος, οὗ οὐκ ἔστι χρεία αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐξερρίφη καὶ ἐξεβλήθη εἰς γῆν, ἣν οὐκ ᾔδει. 29 γῆ γῆ ἀκουε λόγον Κυρίου· 30 γράψον τὸν ἄνδρα τοῦτον ἐκκήρυκτον ἄνθρωπον, ὅτι οὐ μὴ αὐξηθῇ ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτοῦ ἀνὴρ καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυὶδ ἄρχων ἔτι ἐν τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ.
