1 ἀκούσατε τὸν λόγον τοῦτον δαμάλεις τῆς Βασανίτιδος αἱ ἐν τῷ ὄρει τῆς Σαμαρείας αἱ καταδυναστεύουσαι πτωχοὺς καὶ καταπατοῦσαι πένητας αἱ λέγουσαι τοῖς κυρίοις αὐτῶν ἐπίδοτε ἡμῖν ὅπως πίωμεν 2 ὀμνύει κύριος κατὰ τῶν ἁγίων αὐτοῦ διότι ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται ἐ{F'} ὑμᾶς καὶ λήμψονται ὑμᾶς ἐν ὅπλοις καὶ τοὺς με{Q'} ὑμῶν εἰς λέβητας ὑποκαιομένους ἐμβαλοῦσιν ἔμπυροι λοιμοί 3 καὶ ἐξενεχθήσεσθε γυμναὶ κατέναντι ἀλλήλων καὶ ἀπορριφήσεσθε εἰς τὸ ὄρος τὸ Ρεμμαν λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός 1 Here is word for you, pampered cattle that dwell at Samaria, the poor wronging, the friendless folk spurning, and ever crying out upon your husbands, Wine, there! We would drink! 2 Never let me be called holy, the Lord God says, if doom does not overtake you for this; see if you be not trussed on spears, and your children given up to feed the cooking-pan![1] 3 Leave the city walls you must, the Lord says, one by this breach, one by that, and be cast away in Armon. 1

Audite verbum hoc, vaccæ pingues,
quæ estis in monte Samariæ,
quæ calumniam facitis egenis
et confringitis pauperes;
quæ dicitis dominis vestris: Afferte, et bibemus.
2
Juravit Dominus Deus in sancto suo,
quia ecce dies venient super vos,
et levabunt vos in contis,
et reliquias vestras in ollis ferventibus.
3
Et per aperturas exibitis altera contra alteram,
et projiciemini in Armon,
dicit Dominus.
4 εἰσήλθατε εἰς Βαιθηλ καὶ ἠνομήσατε καὶ εἰς Γαλγαλα ἐπληθύνατε τοῦ ἀσεβῆσαι καὶ ἠνέγκατε εἰς τὸ πρωὶ θυσίας ὑμῶν εἰς τὴν τριημερίαν τὰ ἐπιδέκατα ὑμῶν 5 καὶ ἀνέγνωσαν ἔξω νόμον καὶ ἐπεκαλέσαντο ὁμολογίας ἀπαγγείλατε ὅτι ταῦτα ἠγάπησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός 4 On with you to Bethel, and defy me, thence to Galgal, and repeat defiance there; morning victims, tithes on the third day, 5 bread, leavened bread, for thank-offering, gifts of devotion publicly proclaimed![2] Have your will, men of Israel, says the Lord God, have your will. 4

Venite ad Bethel, et impie agite;
ad Galgalam, et multiplicate prævaricationem:
et afferte mane victimas vestras,
tribus diebus decimas vestras.
5
Et sacrificate de fermentato laudem,
et vocate voluntarias oblationes, et annuntiate;
sic enim voluistis, filii Israël,
dicit Dominus Deus.
6 καὶ ἐγὼ δώσω ὑμῖν γομφιασμὸν ὀδόντων ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν ὑμῶν καὶ ἔνδειαν ἄρτων ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς τόποις ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με λέγει κύριος 7 καὶ ἐγὼ ἀνέσχον ἐξ ὑμῶν τὸν ὑετὸν πρὸ τριῶν μηνῶν τοῦ τρυγήτου καὶ βρέξω ἐπὶ πόλιν μίαν ἐπὶ δὲ πόλιν μίαν οὐ βρέξω μερὶς μία βραχήσεται καὶ μερίς ἐ{F'} ἣν οὐ βρέξω ἐ{P'} αὐτήν ξηρανθήσεται 8 καὶ συναθροισθήσονται δύο καὶ τρεῖς πόλεις εἰς πόλιν μίαν τοῦ πιεῖν ὕδωρ καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐμπλησθῶσιν καὶ οὐκ ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με λέγει κύριος 9 ἐπάταξα ὑμᾶς ἐν πυρώσει καὶ ἐν ἰκτέρῳ ἐπληθύνατε κήπους ὑμῶν ἀμπελῶνας ὑμῶν καὶ συκῶνας ὑμῶν καὶ ἐλαιῶνας ὑμῶν κατέφαγεν ἡ κάμπη καὶ οὐ{D'} ὧς ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με λέγει κύριος 10 ἐξαπέστειλα εἰς ὑμᾶς θάνατον ἐν ὁδῷ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀπέκτεινα ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ τοὺς νεανίσκους ὑμῶν μετὰ αἰχμαλωσίας ἵππων σου καὶ ἀνήγαγον ἐν πυρὶ τὰς παρεμβολὰς ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ὀργῇ μου καὶ οὐ{D'} ὧς ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με λέγει κύριος 11 κατέστρεψα ὑμᾶς καθὼς κατέστρεψεν ὁ θεὸς Σοδομα καὶ Γομορρα καὶ ἐγένεσθε ὡς δαλὸς ἐξεσπασμένος ἐκ πυρός καὶ οὐ{D'} ὧς ἐπεστρέψατε πρός με λέγει κύριος 6 What would you? Never a city left but men’s teeth were idle, never a village but bread lacked there, and you would not come back to me, the Lord says. 7 It was three months to harvest, and rain I denied you; or rain fell on one city, and not on the next, one village had a drenching and the next was dry, 8 till one city must supply water for three neighbours, and none had its fill, and you would not come back to me. 9 You would not come back to me, the Lord says, when sirocco I sent, and mildew, and the locust preyed on garden and vineyard, fig-tree and olive-tree of yours; 10 you would not come back to me, when with Egypt’s pestilence[3] I slew you, when your warriors fell at the sword’s point, and your horses were carried off, and never a camp of yours but the stench of it plagued your nostrils; 11 you would not come back to me, when ruin threatened, swift as the divine stroke that ruined Sodom and Gomorrha, and you yourselves were like a brand saved from the burning. 6
Unde et ego dedi vobis stuporem dentium in cunctis urbibus vestris,
et indigentiam panum in omnibus locis vestris;
et non estis reversi ad me,
dicit Dominus.
7
Ego quoque prohibui a vobis imbrem,
cum adhuc tres menses superessent usque ad messem:
et plui super unam civitatem,
et super alteram civitatem non plui;
pars una compluta est,
et pars super quam non plui, aruit.
8
Et venerunt duæ et tres civitates ad unam civitatem
ut biberent aquam, et non sunt satiatæ;
et non redistis ad me,
dicit Dominus.
9
Percussi vos in vento urente, et in aurugine:
multitudinem hortorum vestrorum et vinearum vestrarum,
oliveta vestra et ficeta vestra comedit eruca:
et non redistis ad me,
dicit Dominus.
10
Misi in vos mortem in via Ægypti;
percussi in gladio juvenes vestros,
usque ad captivitatem equorum vestrorum,
et ascendere feci putredinem castrorum vestrorum in nares vestras:
et non redistis ad me,
dicit Dominus.
11
Subverti vos sicut subvertit Deus Sodomam et Gomorrham,
et facti estis quasi torris raptus ab incendio:
et non redistis ad me,
dicit Dominus.
12 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως ποιήσω σοι Ισραηλ πλὴν ὅτι οὕτως ποιήσω σοι ἑτοιμάζου τοῦ ἐπικαλεῖσθαι τὸν θεόν σου Ισραηλ 13 διότι ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ στερεῶν βροντὴν καὶ κτίζων πνεῦμα καὶ ἀπαγγέλλων εἰς ἀνθρώπους τὸν χριστὸν αὐτοῦ ποιῶν ὄρθρον καὶ ὁμίχλην καὶ ἐπιβαίνων ἐπὶ τὰ ὕψη τῆς γῆς κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ ὄνομα αὐτῷ 12 Now I have worse, Israel, in store for thee;[4] when that worse comes, prepare thou must, Israel, to meet thy God. 13 He is here, that fashioned the hills and made the winds; he is here, that gives man warning of his designs, that turns dawn into darkness, and sets his feet on the highest heights of earth; the Lord God of hosts is the name of him. 12
Quapropter hæc faciam tibi, Israël:
postquam autem hæc fecero tibi,
præparare in occursum Dei tui, Israël.
13
Quia ecce formans montes,
et creans ventum,
et annuntians homini eloquium suum,
faciens matutinam nebulam,
et gradiens super excelsa terræ:
Dominus Deus exercituum nomen ejus.
