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

1 Τάδε λέγει κύριος Πορεύου καὶ κατάβηθι εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως Ιουδα καὶ λαλήσεις ἐκεῖ τὸν λόγον τοῦτον Jeremiah's message to the royal house of Judah. Jr.22.1-9Jeremiah's message to the royal house of Judah. Jr.22.1-9Thus says the Lord; Go you, and go down to the house of the king of Juda, and you shall speak there this word,
2 καὶ ἐρεῖς Ἄκουε λόγον κυρίου, βασιλεῦ Ιουδα ὁ καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυιδ, σὺ καὶ ὁ οἶκός σου καὶ ὁ λαός σου καὶ οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι ταῖς πύλαις ταύταις   and you shall say, Hear the word of the Lord, O king of Juda, that sits on the throne of David, you, and your house, and your people, and they that go in at these gates:
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 ἀσεβεῖτε καὶ αἷμα ἀθῷον μὴ ἐκχέητε ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ.   thus says the Lord; Execute you 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 διότι ἐὰν ποιοῦντες ποιήσητε τὸν λόγον τοῦτον, καὶ εἰσελεύσονται ἐν ταῖς πύλαις τοῦ οἴκου τούτου βασιλεῖς καθήμενοι ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπιβεβηκότες ἐφ' ἁρμάτων καὶ ἵππων, αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτῶν καὶ ὁ λαὸς αὐτῶν·   For if you 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 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ποιήσητε τοὺς λόγους τούτους, κατ' ἐμαυτοῦ ὤμοσα, λέγει κύριος, ὅτι εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἔσται ὁ οἶκος οὗτος.   But if you will not perform these words, by myself have I sworn, says the Lord, that this house shall be [brought] to desolation.
6 ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος κατὰ τοῦ οἴκου βασιλέως Ιουδα Γαλααδ σύ μοι, ἀρχὴ τοῦ Λιβάνου· ἐὰν μὴ θῶ σε εἰς ἔρημον, πόλεις μὴ κατοικηθησομένας·   For thus says the Lord concerning the house of the king of Juda; You are Galaad to me, [and] the head of Libanus: [yet] surely I will make you a desert, [even] cities that shall not be inhabited:
7 καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπὶ σὲ ἄνδρα ὀλεθρεύοντα καὶ τὸν πέλεκυν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐκκόψουσιν τὰς ἐκλεκτὰς κέδρους σου καὶ ἐμβαλοῦσιν εἰς τὸ πῦρ.   and I will bring upon you a destroying man, and his axe: and they shall cut down your choice cedars, and cast [them] into the fire.
8 καὶ διελεύσονται ἔθνη διὰ τῆς πόλεως ταύτης καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ Διὰ τί ἐποίησεν κύριος οὕτως τῇ πόλει τῇ μεγάλῃ ταύτῃ;   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 καὶ ἐροῦσιν Ἀνθ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπον τὴν διαθήκην κυρίου θεοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ προσεκύνησαν θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτοῖς.   And they shall say Because they forsook the covenant of the Lord their God, and worshipped strange gods, and served them.
