 Old Testament in Greek (Septuagint) ΙΕΡΕΜΙΑΣ: The Septuagint in English (Brenton)

18 ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος Ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ σκελίζω τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν ταύτην ἐν θλίψει, ὅπως εὑρεθῇ ἡ πληγή σου·   For thus says the Lord, Behold, I [will] overthrow the inhabitants of this land with affliction, that your plague may be discovered.
19 οὐαὶ ἐπὶ συντρίμματί σου, ἀλγηρὰ ἡ πληγή σου. κἀγὼ εἶπα Ὄντως τοῦτο τὸ τραῦμά μου καὶ κατέλαβέν με·   Alas for your ruin! your plague is grievous: and I said, Surely this is your wound, and it has overtaken you.
20 ἡ σκηνή μου ἐταλαιπώρησεν ὤλετο, καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ δέρρεις μου διεσπάσθησαν· οἱ υἱοί μου καὶ τὰ πρόβατά μου οὔκ εἰσιν, οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι τόπος τῆς σκηνῆς μου, τόπος τῶν δέρρεών μου.   Your tabernacle is in a ruinous state, it has perished; and all your curtains have been torn asunder: my children and my cattle are no more: there is no more any place for my tabernacle, [nor] place for my curtains.
21 ὅτι οἱ ποιμένες ἠφρονεύσαντο καὶ τὸν κύριον οὐκ ἐξεζήτησαν· διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἐνόησεν πᾶσα ἡ νομὴ καὶ διεσκορπίσθησαν.   For the shepherds have become foolish, and have not sought the Lord; therefore the whole pasture has failed, and [the sheep] have been scattered.
22 φωνὴ ἀκοῆς ἰδοὺ ἔρχεται καὶ σεισμὸς μέγας ἐκ γῆς βορρᾶ τοῦ τάξαι τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα εἰς ἀφανισμὸν καὶ κοίτην στρουθῶν.   Behold, there comes a sound of a noise, and a great earthquake from the land of the north, to make the cities of Juda a desolation, and a resting-place for ostriches.
23 οἶδα, κύριε, ὅτι οὐχὶ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἡ ὁδὸς αὐτοῦ, οὐδὲ ἀνὴρ πορεύσεται καὶ κατορθώσει πορείαν αὐτοῦ.   I know, O Lord, that man's way is not his own; neither shall a man go, and direct his going.
24 παίδευσον ἡμᾶς, κύριε, πλὴν ἐν κρίσει καὶ μὴ ἐν θυμῷ, ἵνα μὴ ὀλίγους ἡμᾶς ποιήσῃς.   Chasten us, O Lord, but with judgment; and not in wrath, lest you make us few.
25 ἔκχεον τὸν θυμόν σου ἐπὶ ἔθνη τὰ μὴ εἰδότα σε καὶ ἐπὶ γενεὰς αἳ τὸ ὄνομά σου οὐκ ἐπεκαλέσαντο, ὅτι κατέφαγον τὸν Ιακωβ καὶ ἐξανήλωσαν αὐτὸν καὶ τὴν νομὴν αὐτοῦ ἠρήμωσαν.   Pour out your wrath upon the nations that have not known you, and upon the families that have not called upon your name: for they ave devoured Jacob, and consumed him, and have made his pasture desolate.
