Jeremiah 9

Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!
quis dabit capiti meo aquam et oculis meis fontem lacrimarum et plorabo die et nocte interfectos filiae populi mei
Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.
quis dabit me in solitudine diversorium viatorum et derelinquam populum meum et recedam ab eis quia omnes adulteri sunt coetus praevaricatorum
And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.
et extenderunt linguam suam quasi arcum mendacii et non veritatis confortati sunt in terra quia de malo ad malum egressi sunt et me non cognoverunt dicit Dominus
Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
unusquisque se a proximo suo custodiat et in omni fratre suo non habeat fiduciam quia omnis frater subplantans subplantabit et omnis amicus fraudulenter incedet
And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
et vir fratrem suum deridebit et veritatem non loquentur docuerunt enim linguam suam loqui mendacium ut inique agerent laboraverunt
Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
habitatio tua in medio doli in dolo rennuerunt scire me dicit Dominus
Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?
propterea haec dicit Dominus exercituum ecce ego conflabo et probabo eos quid enim aliud faciam a facie filiae populi mei
Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.
sagitta vulnerans lingua eorum dolum locuta est in ore suo pacem cum amico suo loquitur et occulte ponit ei insidias
Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
numquid super his non visitabo dicit Dominus aut in gentem huiuscemodi non ulciscetur anima mea
For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled; they are gone.
super montes adsumam fletum ac lamentum et super speciosa deserti planctum quoniam incensa sunt eo quod non sit vir pertransiens et non audierunt vocem possidentis a volucre caeli usque ad pecora transmigraverunt et recesserunt
And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.
et dabo Hierusalem in acervos harenae et cubilia draconum et civitates Iuda dabo in desolationem eo quod non sit habitator
Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?
quis est vir sapiens qui intellegat hoc et ad quem verbum oris Domini fiat ut adnuntiet istud quare perierit terra exusta sit quasi desertum eo quod non sit qui pertranseat
And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;
et dixit Dominus quia dereliquerunt legem meam quam dedi eis et non audierunt vocem meam et non ambulaverunt in ea
But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:
et abierunt post pravitatem cordis sui et post Baalim quos didicerunt a patribus suis
Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.
idcirco haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego cibabo eos populum istum absinthio et potum dabo eis aquam fellis
I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.
et dispergam eos in gentibus quas non noverunt ipsi et patres eorum et mittam post eos gladium donec consumantur
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come:
haec dicit Dominus exercituum contemplamini et vocate lamentatrices et veniant et ad eas quae sapientes sunt mittite et properent
And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.
festinent et adsumant super nos lamentum deducant oculi nostri lacrimas et palpebrae nostrae defluant aquis
For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.
quia vox lamentationis audita est de Sion quomodo vastati sumus et confusi vehementer quia dereliquimus terram quoniam deiecta sunt tabernacula nostra
Yet hear the word of the LORD, O ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbour lamentation.
audite ergo mulieres verbum Domini et adsumat auris vestra sermonem oris eius et docete filias vestras lamentum et unaquaeque proximam suam planctum
For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.
quia ascendit mors per fenestras nostras ingressa est domos nostras disperdere parvulos de foris iuvenes de plateis
Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them.
loquere haec dicit Dominus et cadet morticinum hominis quasi stercus super faciem regionis et quasi faenum post tergum metentis et non est qui colligat
Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
haec dicit Dominus non glorietur sapiens in sapientia sua et non glorietur fortis in fortitudine sua et non glorietur dives in divitiis suis
But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
sed in hoc glorietur qui gloriatur scire et nosse me quia ego sum Dominus qui facio misericordiam et iudicium et iustitiam in terra haec enim placent mihi ait Dominus
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;
ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et visitabo super omnem qui circumcisum habet praeputium
Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that dwell in the wilderness: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.
super Aegyptum et super Iudam et super Edom et super filios Ammon et super Moab et super omnes qui adtonsi sunt in comam habitantes in deserto quia omnes gentes habent praeputium omnis autem domus Israhel incircumcisi sunt corde
