1 And the word of the Lord came to Jeremias the second time, when he was yet bound in the court of the prison, saying, 2 Thus saith the Lord, who made the earth and formed it, to establish it; the Lord is his name; 3 Cry to me, and I will answer thee, and I will declare to thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. 4 For thus saith the Lord concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the king of Juda, which have been pulled down for mounds and fortifications, 5 to fight against the Chaldeans, and to fill it with the corpses of men, whom I smote in mine anger and my wrath, and turned away my face from them, for all their wickedness: 6 Behold, I bring upon her healing and cure, and I will show [myself] to them, and will heal her, and make both peace and security. 7 And I will turn the captivity of Juda, and the captivity of Israel, and will build them, even as before. 8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned against me, and will not remember their sins, whereby they have sinned against me, and revolted from me. 9 And it shall be for joy and praise, and for glory to all the people of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I will do: and they shall fear and be provoked for all the good things and for all the peace which I will bring upon them. 10 Thus saith the Lord; There shall yet be heard in this place, of which ye say, it is destitute of men and cattle, in the cities of Juda, and in the streets of Jerusalem, [the places] that have been made desolate for want of men and cattle, 11 the voice of gladness, and the voice of joy, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of men saying, Give thanks to the Lord Almighty: for the Lord is good; for his mercy [endures] forever: and they shall bring gifts into the house of the Lord; for I will turn all the captivity of that land as before, said the Lord. 12 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; There shall yet be in this place, that is desert for want of man and beast, in all the cities hereof, resting-places for shepherds causing their flocks to lie down. 13 In the cities of the hill country, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the [cities] round about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Juda, flocks shall yet pass under the hand of him that numbers [them], saith the Lord. (Μασ. ΛΓ´) ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρὸς ῾Ιερεμίαν δεύτερον, καὶ αὐτὸς ἦν ἔτι δεδεμένος ἐν τῇ αὐλῇ τῆς φυλακῆς λέγων· 2 οὕτως εἶπε Κύριος ποιῶν γῆν καὶ πλάσσων αὐτὴν τοῦ ἀνορθῶσαι αὐτήν, Κύριος ὄνομα αὐτῷ· 3 κέκραξον πρός με, καὶ ἀποκριθήσομαί σοι καὶ ἀπαγγελῶ σοι μεγάλα καὶ ἰσχυρά, ἃ οὐκ ἔγνως αὐτά. 4 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ περὶ οἴκων τῆς πόλεως ταύτης καὶ περὶ οἴκων βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα τῶν καθῃρημένων εἰς χάρακας καὶ προμαχῶνας 5 τοῦ μάχεσθαι πρὸς τοὺς Χαλδαίους καὶ πληρῶσαι αὐτὴν τῶν νεκρῶν τῶν ἀνθρώπων, οὓς ἐπάταξα ἐν ὀργῇ μου καὶ ἐν θυμῷ μου, καὶ ἀπέστρεψα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἀπ’ αὐτῶν περὶ πασῶν τῶν πονηριῶν αὐτῶν· 6 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἀνάγω αὐτῇ συνούλωσιν καὶ ἴαμα καὶ φανερώσω αὐτοῖς εἰσακούειν καὶ ἰατρεύσω αὐτὴν καὶ ποιήσω αὐτοῖς εἰρήνην καὶ πίστιν. 7 καὶ ἀποστρέψω τὴν ἀποικίαν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ τὴν ἀποικίαν ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ οἰκοδομήσω αὐτοὺς καθὼς τὸ πρότερον. 8 καὶ καθαριῶ αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν ἀδικιῶν αὐτῶν, ὧν ἡμάρτοσάν μοι, καὶ οὐ μὴ μνησθήσομαι ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν, ὧν ἥμαρτόν μοι καὶ ἀπέστησαν ἀπ’ ἐμοῦ. 9 καὶ ἔσται εἰς εὐφροσύνην καὶ αἴνεσιν καὶ εἰς μεγαλειότητα παντὶ τῷ λαῷ τῆς γῆς, οἵτινες ἀκούσονται πάντα τὰ ἀγαθά, ἃ ἐγὼ ποιήσω, καὶ φοβηθήσονται καὶ πικρανθήσονται περὶ πάντων τῶν ἀγαθῶν καὶ περὶ πάσης τῆς εἰρήνης, ἧς ἐγὼ ποιήσω αὐτοῖς. - 10 Οὕτως εἶπε Κύριος· ἔτι ἀκουσθήσεται ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ, ᾧ ὑμεῖς λέγετε· ἔρημός ἐστιν ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπων καὶ κτηνῶν, ἐν πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἔξωθεν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ταῖς ἠρημωμέναις παρὰ τὸ μὴ εἶναι ἄνθρωπον καὶ κτήνη, 11 φωνὴ εὐφροσύνης καὶ φωνὴ χαρμοσύνης, φωνὴ νυμφίου καὶ φωνὴ νύμφης, φωνὴ λεγόντων· ἐξομολογεῖσθε Κυρίῳ παντοκράτορι, ὅτι χρηστὸς Κύριος, ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ· καὶ εἰσοίσουσι δῶρα εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου, ὅτι ἀποστρέψω πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποικίαν τῆς γῆς ἐκείνης κατὰ τὸ πρότερον, εἶπε Κύριος· 12 οὕτως εἶπε Κύριος τῶν δυνάμεων· ἔτι ἔσται ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ τῷ ἐρήμῳ παρὰ τὸ μὴ εἶναι ἄνθρωπον καὶ κτῆνος καὶ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν αὐτοῦ καταλύματα ποιμένων κοιταζόντων πρόβατα· 13 ἐν πόλεσι τῆς ὀρεινῆς καὶ ἐν πόλεσι τῆς Σεφηλὰ καὶ ἐν πόλεσι τῆς Ναγὲβ καὶ ἐν γῇ Βενιαμὶν καὶ ἐν ταῖς κύκλῳ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα ἔτι παρελεύσεται πρόβατα ἐπὶ χεῖρα ἀριθμοῦντος, εἶπε Κύριος.
