1 The Lord shewed me two baskets of figs, lying in front of the temple of the Lord, after Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon had carried captive Jechonias son of Joakim king of Juda, and the princes, and the artificers, and the prisoners, and the rich men out of Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. 2 The one basket was [full] of very good figs, as the early figs; and the other basket was [full] of very bad figs, which could not be eaten, for their badness. 3 And the Lord said to me, What seest thou, Jeremias? and I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the bad, very bad, which cannot be eaten, for their badness. 4 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 5 Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel; As these good figs, so will I acknowledge the Jews that have been carried away captive, whom I have sent forth out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for good. 6 And I will fix mine eyes upon them for good, and I will restore them into this land for good: and I will build them up, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. 7 And I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be to me a people, and I will be to them a God: for they shall turn to me with all their heart. 8 And as the bad figs, which cannot be eaten, for their badness; thus saith the Lord, So will I deliver Sedekias king of Juda, and his nobles, and the remnant of Jerusalem, them that are left in this land, and the dwellers in Egypt. 9 And I will cause them to be dispersed into all the kingdoms of the earth, and they shall be for a reproach, and a proverb, and an [object of] hatred, and a curse, in every place whither I have driven them out. 10 And I will send against them famine, and pestilence, and the sword, until they are consumed from off the land which I gave them. ΕΔΕΙΞΕ μοι Κύριος δύο καλάθους σύκων κειμένους κατὰ πρόσωπον ναοῦ Κυρίου μετὰ τὸ ἀποικίσαι Ναβουχοδονόσορ βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος τὸν ᾿Ιεχονίαν υἱὸν ᾿Ιωακεὶμ βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας καὶ τοὺς τεχνίτας καὶ τοὺς δεσμώτας καὶ τοὺς πλουσίους ἐξ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἤγαγεν αὐτοὺς εἰς Βαβυλῶνα· 2 ὁ κάλαθος ὁ εἷς σύκων χρηστῶν σφόδρα, ὡς τὰ σύκα τὰ πρώϊμα, καὶ ὁ κάλαθος ὁ ἕτερος σύκων πονηρῶν σφόδρα, ἃ οὐ βρωθήσεται ἀπὸ πονηρίας αὐτῶν. 3 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· τί σὺ ὁρᾷς, ῾Ιερεμία; καὶ εἶπα· σύκα· τὰ χρηστὰ χρηστὰ λίαν, καὶ τὰ πονηρὰ πονηρὰ λίαν, ἃ οὐ βρωθήσεται ἀπὸ πονηρίας αὐτῶν. 4 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 5 τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ· ὡς τὰ σύκα τὰ χρηστὰ ταῦτα, οὕτως ἐπιγνώσομαι τοὺς ἀποικισθέντας ᾿Ιούδα, οὓς ἐξαπέσταλκα ἐκ τοῦ τόπου τούτου εἰς γῆν Χαλδαίων εἰς ἀγαθά. καὶ στηριῶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς εἰς ἀγαθὰ καὶ ἀποκαταστήσω αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν ταύτην εἰς ἀγαθὰ καὶ ἀνοικοδομήσω αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐ μὴ καθελῶ καὶ καταφυτεύσω αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐκτίλω. 7 καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς καρδίαν τοῦ εἰδέναι αὐτοὺς ἐμέ, ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι Κύριος, καὶ ἔσονταί μοι εἰς λαόν, καὶ ἐγὼ ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς εἰς Θεόν, ὅτι ἐπιστραφήσονται ἐπ’ ἐμὲ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν. 8 καὶ ὡς τὰ σύκα τὰ πονηρά, ἃ οὐ βρωθήσονται ἀπὸ πονηρίας αὐτῶν, τάδε λέγει Κύριος, οὕτως παραδώσω τὸν Σεδεκίαν βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα καὶ τοὺς μεγιστᾶνας αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸ κατάλοιπον ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ τοὺς ὑπολελειμμένους ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ. 9 καὶ δώσω αὐτοὺς εἰς διασκορπισμὸν εἰς πάσας τὰς βασιλείας τῆς γῆς, καὶ ἔσονται εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν καὶ εἰς παραβολὴν καὶ εἰς μῖσος καὶ εἰς κατάραν ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ, οὗ ἔξωσα αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ. 10 καὶ ἀποστελῶ εἰς αὐτοὺς τὸν λιμὸν καὶ τὸν θάνατον καὶ τὴν μάχαιραν, ἕως ἂν ἐκλείπωσιν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς, ἧς ἔδωκα αὐτοῖς.
