Jeremiah 27:1 holds what appears to be a copyist error, and this shows up in translator decisions to either retain it or "fix" it. We show the translations.

Jeremiah’s Lamentation’s Greek Verse One
The book of Jeremiah is followed by its sequel, Lamentations. Lamentations has a curious one-line introductory preface in the Greek Septuagint. It also carries alphabetic acrostics in the original Hebrew, and the creators of the Greek Septuagint had a clever way of dealing with this.
Hey Bro! You Been Messin’ Up! And Your Wife Too!
