Revelation (Apocalypse)



The prophet sends chains to divers kings, signifying that they must bend their necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon. The vessels of the temple shall not be brought back till all the rest are carried away.

chapters: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52
271In the beginning of the reign of Joakim the son of Josias king of Juda, this word came to Jeremias from the Lord, saying:in principio regni Ioachim filii Iosiae regis Iuda factum est verbum istud ad Hieremiam a Domino dicens
272Thus saith the Lord to me: Make thee bands, and chains: and thou shalt put them on thy neck.haec dicit Dominus ad me fac tibi vincula et catenas et pones eas in collo tuo
273And thou shalt send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the children of Ammon, and to the king of Tyre, and to the king of Sidon: by the hand of the messengers that are come to Jerusalem to Sedecias the king of Juda.et mittes eas ad regem Edom et ad regem Moab et ad regem filiorum Ammon et ad regem Tyri et ad regem Sidonis in manu nuntiorum qui venerunt Hierusalem ad Sedeciam regem Iuda
274And thou shalt command them to speak to their masters: Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Thus shall you say to your masters:et praecipies eis ut ad dominos suos loquantur haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel haec dicetis ad dominos vestros
275I made the earth, and the men and the beasts that are upon the face of the earth, by my great power, and by my stretched out arm: and I have given it to whom it seemed good in my eyes.ego feci terram et hominem et iumenta quae sunt super faciem terrae in fortitudine mea magna et in brachio meo extento et dedi eam ei qui placuit in oculis meis
276And now I have given all these lands into the hand of Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon my servant: moreover also the beasts of the field I have given him to serve him.et nunc itaque ego dedi omnes terras istas in manu Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis servi mei insuper et bestias agri dedi ei ut serviant illi
277And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son: till the time come for his land and himself: and many nations and great kings shall serve him.et servient ei omnes gentes et filio eius et filio filii eius donec veniat tempus terrae eius et ipsius et servient ei gentes multae et reges magni
278But the nation and kingdom that will not serve Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon, and whosoever will not bend his neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon: I will visit upon that nation with the sword, and with famine, and with pestilence, saith the Lord: till I consume them by his hand.gens autem et regnum quod non servierit Nabuchodonosor regi Babylonis et quicumque non curvaverit collum suum sub iugo regis Babylonis in gladio et in fame et in peste visitabo super gentem illam ait Dominus donec consumam eos in manu eius
279Therefore hearken not to your prophets, and diviners, and dreamers, and soothsayers, and sorcerers, that say to you: You shall not serve the king of Babylon.vos ergo nolite audire prophetas vestros et divinos et somniatores et augures et maleficos qui dicunt vobis non servietis regi Babylonis
2710For they prophesy lies to you: to remove you far from your country, and cast you out, and to make you perish.quia mendacium prophetant vobis ut longe faciant vos de terra vestra et eiciant vos et pereatis
2711But the nation that shall bend down their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and shall serve him: I will let them remain in their own land, saith the Lord: and they shall till it, and dwell in it.porro gens quae subiecerit cervicem suam sub iugo regis Babylonis et servierit ei dimittam eam in terra sua dicit Dominus et colet eam et habitabit in ea
2712And I spoke to Sedecias the king of Juda according to all these words, saying: Bend down your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, and his people, and you shall live.et ad Sedeciam regem Iuda locutus sum secundum omnia verba haec dicens subicite colla vestra sub iugo regis Babylonis et servite ei et populo eius et vivetis
2713Why will you die, thou and thy people by the sword, and by famine, and by the pestilence, as the Lord hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?quare moriemini tu et populus tuus gladio fame et peste sicut locutus est Dominus ad gentem quae servire noluerit regi Babylonis
2714Hearken not to the words of the prophets that say to you: You shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they tell you a lie.nolite audire verba prophetarum dicentium vobis non servietis regi Babylonis quia mendacium ipsi loquuntur vobis
2715For I have not sent them, saith the Lord: and they prophesy in my name falsely: to drive you out, and that you may perish, both you, and the prophets that prophesy to you.quia non misi eos ait Dominus et ipsi prophetant in nomine meo mendaciter ut eiciant vos et pereatis tam vos quam prophetae qui vaticinantur vobis
2716I spoke also to the priests, and to this people, saying: Thus saith the Lord: Hearken not to the words of your prophets, that prophesy to you, saying: Behold the vessels of the Lord shall now in a short time be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.et ad sacerdotes et ad populum istum locutus sum dicens haec dicit Dominus nolite audire verba prophetarum vestrorum qui prophetant vobis dicentes ecce vasa Domini revertentur de Babylone nunc cito mendacium enim prophetant vobis
2717Therefore hearken not to them, but serve the king of Babylon, that you may live. Why should this city be given up to desolation?nolite ergo audire eos sed servite regi Babylonis ut vivatis quare datur haec civitas in solitudinem
2718But if they be prophets, and the word of the Lord be in them: let them interpose themselves before the Lord of hosts, that the vessels which were left in the house of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Juda, and in Jerusalem, may not go to Babylon.et si prophetae sunt et est verbum Domini in eis occurrant Domino exercituum ut non veniant vasa quae derelicta fuerant in domum Domini et in domum regis Iuda et in Hierusalem in Babylonem
2719For thus saith the Lord of hosts to the pillars, and to the sea, and to the bases, and to the rest of the vessels that remain in this city:quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum ad columnas et ad mare et ad bases et ad reliqua vasorum quae remanserunt in civitate hac
2720Which Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon did not take, when he carried away Jechonias the son of Joakim the king of Juda, from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the great men of Juda and Jerusalem.quae non tulit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis cum transferret Iechoniam filium Ioachim regem Iuda de Hierusalem in Babylonem et omnes optimates Iuda et Hierusalem
2721For thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel, to the vessels that are left in the house of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Juda and Jerusalem:quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ad vasa quae derelicta sunt in domum Domini et in domum regis Iuda et Hierusalem
2722They shall be carried to Babylon, and there they shall be until the day of their visitation, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to be brought, and to be restored in this place.in Babylonem transferentur et ibi erunt usque ad diem visitationis suae dicit Dominus et adferri faciam ea et restitui in loco isto
