|1||Καὶ ἤκουσεν Πασχωρ υἱὸς Εμμηρ ὁ ἱερεύς, καὶ οὗτος ἦν καθεσταμένος ἡγούμενος οἴκου κυρίου, τοῦ Ιερεμιου προφητεύοντος τοὺς λόγους τούτους.
||Now Paschor the son of Emmer the priest who also had been appointed chief of the house of the Lord heard Jeremias prophesying these words.||Jeremiah's conflict with Pashhur the priest. Jr.20.1-6|
|2||καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸν καταρράκτην, ὃς ἦν ἐν πύλῃ οἴκου ἀποτεταγμένου τοῦ ὑπερῴου, ὃς ἦν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου.
||And he smote him and cast him into the dungeon which was by the gate of the upper house that was set apart which was by the house of the Lord.|| |
|3||καὶ ἐξήγαγεν Πασχωρ τὸν Ιερεμιαν ἐκ τοῦ καταρράκτου, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ιερεμιας Οὐχὶ Πασχωρ ἐκάλεσεν κύριος τὸ ὄνομά σου, ἀλλ' ἢ Μέτοικον·
||And Paschor brought Jeremias out of the dungeon: and Jeremias said to him [The Lord] has not called thy name Paschor but Exile.|| |
|4||διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος Ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ δίδωμί σε εἰς μετοικίαν σὺν πᾶσι τοῖς φίλοις σου, καὶ πεσοῦνται ἐν μαχαίρᾳ ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν, καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ὄψονται, καὶ σὲ καὶ πάντα Ιουδαν δώσω εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος, καὶ μετοικιοῦσιν αὐτοὺς καὶ κατακόψουσιν αὐτοὺς ἐν μαχαίραις·
||For thus saith the Lord Behold I [will] give thee up to captivity with all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies and thine eyes shall see [it]: and I will give thee and all Juda into the hands of the king of Babylon and they shall|| |
|5||καὶ δώσω τὴν πᾶσαν ἰσχὺν τῆς πόλεως ταύτης καὶ πάντας τοὺς πόνους αὐτῆς καὶ πάντας τοὺς θησαυροὺς τοῦ βασιλέως Ιουδα εἰς χεῖρας ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἄξουσιν αὐτοὺς εἰς Βαβυλῶνα.
||And I will give all the strength of this city and all the labours of it and all the treasures of the king of Juda into the hands of his enemies and they shall bring them to Babylon.|| |
|6||καὶ σὺ καὶ πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου πορεύσεσθε ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ, καὶ ἐν Βαβυλῶνι ἀποθανῇ καὶ ἐκεῖ ταφήσῃ, σὺ καὶ πάντες οἱ φίλοι σου, οἷς ἐπροφήτευσας αὐτοῖς ψευδῆ.
||And thou and all the dwellers in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt die in Babylon and there thou and all thy friends shall be buried to whom thou hast prophesied lies.|| |
|7||Ἠπάτησάς με, κύριε, καὶ ἠπατήθην, ἐκράτησας καὶ ἠδυνάσθης· ἐγενόμην εἰς γέλωτα, πᾶσαν ἡμέραν διετέλεσα μυκτηριζόμενος·
||Thou hast deceived me O Lord and I have been deceived: thou hast been strong and has prevailed: I am become a laughing-stock I am continually mocked every day.||Jeremiah complains to the LORD. Jr.20.7-18|
|8||ὅτι πικρῷ λόγῳ μου γελάσομαι, ἀθεσίαν καὶ ταλαιπωρίαν ἐπικαλέσομαι, ὅτι ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν ἐμοὶ καὶ εἰς χλευασμὸν πᾶσαν ἡμέραν μου.
||For I will laugh with my bitter speech I will call upon rebellion and misery: for the word of the Lord is become a reproach to me and a mockery all my days.|| |
|9||καὶ εἶπα Οὐ μὴ ὀνομάσω τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου καὶ οὐ μὴ λαλήσω ἔτι ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς πῦρ καιόμενον φλέγον ἐν τοῖς ὀστέοις μου, καὶ παρεῖμαι πάντοθεν καὶ οὐ δύναμαι φέρειν.
||Then I said I will by no means name the name of the Lord and I will no more at all speak in his name. But it was a burning fire flaming in my bones and I am utterly weakened on all sides and cannot bear [up].|| |
|10||ὅτι ἤκουσα ψόγον πολλῶν συναθροιζομένων κυκλόθεν Ἑπισύστητε καὶ ἐπισυστῶμεν αὐτῷ, πάντες ἄνδρες φίλοι αὐτοῦ· τηρήσατε τὴν ἐπίνοιαν αὐτοῦ, εἰ ἀπατηθήσεται καὶ δυνησόμεθα αὐτῷ καὶ λημψόμεθα τὴν ἐκδίκησιν ἡμῶν ἐξ αὐτοῦ.
||For I have heard the reproach of many gathering round [saying] Conspire ye and let us conspire together against him [even] all his friends: watch his intentions|| |
|11||καὶ κύριος μετ' ἐμοῦ καθὼς μαχητὴς ἰσχύων· διὰ τοῦτο ἐδίωξαν καὶ νοῆσαι οὐκ ἠδύναντο· ᾐσχύνθησαν σφόδρα, ὅτι οὐκ ἐνόησαν ἀτιμίας αὐτῶν, αἳ δι' αἰῶνος οὐκ ἐπιλησθήσονται.
||But the Lord was with me as a mighty man of war: therefore they persecuted [me] but could not perceive [anything against me]; they were greatly confounded for they perceived not their disgrace which shall never be forgotten.|| |
|12||κύριε δοκιμάζων δίκαια συνίων νεφροὺς καὶ καρδίας, ἴδοιμι τὴν παρὰ σοῦ ἐκδίκησιν ἐν αὐτοῖς, ὅτι πρὸς σὲ ἀπεκάλυψα τὰ ἀπολογήματά μου. -
||O Lord that provest just [deeds] understanding the reins and hearts let me see thy vengeance upon them: for to thee I have revealed my cause.|| |
|13||ᾄσατε τῷ κυρίῳ, αἰνέσατε αὐτῷ, ὅτι ἐξείλατο ψυχὴν πένητος ἐκ χειρὸς πονηρευομένων. -
||Sing ye to the Lord sing praise to him: for he has rescued the soul of the poor from the hand of evil-doers.|| |
|14||ἐπικατάρατος ἡ ἡμέρα, ἐν ᾗ ἐτέχθην ἐν αὐτῇ· ἡ ἡμέρα, ἐν ᾗ ἔτεκέν με ἡ μήτηρ μου, μὴ ἔστω ἐπευκτή.
||Cursed be the day wherein I was born: the day wherein my mother brought me forth let it not be blessed.|| |
|15||ἐπικατάρατος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὁ εὐαγγελισάμενος τῷ πατρί μου λέγων Ἑτέχθη σοι ἄρσεν, εὐφραινόμενος.
||Cursed be the man who brought the glad tidings to my father saying A male child is born to thee.|| |
|16||ἔστω ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἐκεῖνος ὡς αἱ πόλεις, ἃς κατέστρεψεν κύριος ἐν θυμῷ καὶ οὐ μετεμελήθη, ἀκουσάτω κραυγῆς τὸ πρωῒ καὶ ἀλαλαγμοῦ μεσημβρίας,
||Let that man rejoice as the cities which the Lord overthrew in wrath and repented not: let him hear crying in the morning and loud lamentation at noon;|| |
|17||ὅτι οὐκ ἀπέκτεινέν με ἐν μήτρᾳ μητρὸς καὶ ἐγένετό μοι ἡ μήτηρ μου τάφος μου καὶ ἡ μήτρα συλλήμψεως αἰωνίας.
||because he slew me not in the womb and my mother became not my tomb and her womb always great with me.|| |
|18||ἵνα τί τοῦτο ἐξῆλθον ἐκ μήτρας τοῦ βλέπειν κόπους καὶ πόνους, καὶ διετέλεσαν ἐν αἰσχύνῃ αἱ ἡμέραι μου;
||Why is it that I came forth of the womb to see troubles and distresses and my days are spent in shame?|| |
