Jeremiah - Nova Vulgata
The Book of Jeremiah combines history, biography, and prophecy. It portrays a nation in crisis and introduces the reader to an extraordinary leader upon whom the Lord placed the heavy burden of the prophetic office. Jeremiah was born about 650 B.C. of a priestly family from the little village of Anathoth, near Jerusalem. While still very young he was called to his task in the thirteenth year of King Josiah (628), whose reform, begun with enthusiasm and hope, ended with his death on the battlefield of Megiddo (609) as he attempted to stop the northward march of the Egyptian Pharaoh Neco. The prophet heartily supported the reform of the pious King Josiah, which began in 629 B.C. Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, fell in 612, preparing the way for the new colossus, Babylon, which was soon to put an end to Judean independence. After the death of Josiah the old idolatry returned. Jeremiah opposed it with all his strength. Arrest, imprisonment, and public disgrace were his lot. Jeremiah saw in the nation's impenitence the sealing of its doom. Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem and carried King Jehoiachin into exile (Jeremiah 22:24).
During the years 598-587, Jeremiah attempted to counsel Zedekiah in the face of bitter opposition. The false prophet Hananiah proclaimed that the yoke of Babylon was broken and a strong pro-Egyptian party in Jerusalem induced Zedekiah to revolt. Nebuchadnezzar took swift and terrible vengeance; Jerusalem was destroyed in 587 and its leading citizens sent into exile. About this time Jeremiah uttered the great oracle of the "New Covenant" (Jeremiah 31:31-34) sometimes called "The Gospel before the Gospel." This passage contains his most sublime teaching and is a landmark in Old Testament theology. The prophet remained amidst the ruins of Jerusalem, but was later forced into Egyptian exile by a band of conspirators. There, according to an old tradition, he was murdered by his own countrymen. The influence of Jeremiah was greater after his death than before. The exiled community read and meditated on the lessons of the prophet, and his influence can be seen in Ezekiel, certain of the psalms, and the second part of Isaiah. Shortly after the exile, the Book of Jeremiah as we have it today was published in a final edition.
It is divided as follows: I. Oracles in the Days of Josiah (Jeremiah 1:1-6:30) II. Oracles Mostly in the Days of Jehoiakim (Jeremiah 7:1-20:18) III. Oracles in the Last Years of Jerusalem (Jeremiah 21:1-33:26) IV. Fall of Jerusalem (Jeremiah 34:1-45:5) V. Oracles against the Nations (Jeremiah 46:1-51:64) VI. Historical Appendix (Jeremiah 52:1-34) - (NAB)

    Prophetam in gentibus dedi te

    2 Me dereliquerunt fontem aquae vivae, et foderunt sibi cisternas dissipatas

    3 Dabo vobis pastores iuxta cor meum; et congregabuntur omnes gentes in Ierusalem

    7 Numquid spelunca latronum facta est domus, in qua invocatum est nomen meum?

    Haec est gens quae non audivit vocem Domini Dei sui

    11 Ego quasi agnus mansuetus, qui portatur ad victimam

    13 Erit populus sicut lumbare istud, quod nulli usui aptum est

    14 Recordare, Domine, ne irritum facias foedum tuum nobiscum

    15 Quare factus est dolor meus perpetuus? Si converteris, ante faciem meam stabis

    17 Maledictus qui confidit in homine; benedictus qui confidit in Domino

    18 Sicut lutum in manu figuli, sic vos in manu mea

    Venite, et percutiamus eum

    20 Dominus mecum est, quasi bellator fortis

    23 Suscitabo David germen iustum

    26 Congregatus est omnis populus ad Dominum

    In veritate misit me Dominus ad vos, ut loquerer verba haec

    28 Hanania, non misit te Dominus, et tu confidere fecisti populum in mendacio

    30 Propter dura peccata tua feci haec tibi

    Convertam tabernacula Iacob

    31 In caritate perpetua dilexi te

    Caecum et claudum in misericordia reducam

    Feriam foedus novum et peccati non memorabor

    33 Germinare faciam David germen iustitiae

    38 Genuisti me virum discordiae in universa terra
