1 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 2 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου διήγησαι διήγημα καὶ εἰπὸν παραβολὴν πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Ισραηλ 3 καὶ ἐρεῖς τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ ἀετὸς ὁ μέγας ὁ μεγαλοπτέρυγος ὁ μακρὸς τῇ ἐκτάσει πλήρης ὀνύχων ὃς ἔχει τὸ ἥγημα εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὸν Λίβανον καὶ ἔλαβε τὰ ἐπίλεκτα τῆς κέδρου 4 τὰ ἄκρα τῆς ἁπαλότητος ἀπέκνισεν καὶ ἤνεγκεν αὐτὰ εἰς γῆν Χανααν εἰς πόλιν τετειχισμένην ἔθετο αὐτά 5 καὶ ἔλαβεν ἀπὸ τοῦ σπέρματος τῆς γῆς καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸ εἰς τὸ πεδίον φυτὸν ἐ{F'} ὕδατι πολλῷ ἐπιβλεπόμενον ἔταξεν αὐτό 6 καὶ ἀνέτειλεν καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς ἄμπελον ἀσθενοῦσαν καὶ μικρὰν τῷ μεγέθει τοῦ ἐπιφαίνεσθαι αὐτήν τὰ κλήματα αὐτῆς ἐ{P'} αὐτὴν καὶ αἱ ῥίζαι αὐτῆς ὑποκάτω αὐτῆς ἦσαν καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς ἄμπελον καὶ ἐποίησεν ἀπώρυγας καὶ ἐξέτεινεν τὴν ἀναδενδράδα αὐτῆς 7 καὶ ἐγένετο ἀετὸς ἕτερος μέγας μεγαλοπτέρυγος πολὺς ὄνυξιν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἡ ἄμπελος αὕτη περιπεπλεγμένη πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ αἱ ῥίζαι αὐτῆς πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ τὰ κλήματα αὐτῆς ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτῷ τοῦ ποτίσαι αὐτὴν σὺν τῷ βώλῳ τῆς φυτείας αὐτῆς 8 εἰς πεδίον καλὸν ἐ{F'} ὕδατι πολλῷ αὕτη πιαίνεται τοῦ ποιεῖν βλαστοὺς καὶ φέρειν καρπὸν τοῦ εἶναι εἰς ἄμπελον μεγάλην 9 διὰ τοῦτο εἰπόν τάδε λέγει κύριος εἰ κατευθυνεῖ οὐχὶ αἱ ῥίζαι τῆς ἁπαλότητος αὐτῆς καὶ ὁ καρπὸς σαπήσεται καὶ ξηρανθήσεται πάντα τὰ προανατέλλοντα αὐτῆς καὶ οὐκ ἐν βραχίονι μεγάλῳ οὐ{D'} ἐν λαῷ πολλῷ τοῦ ἐκσπάσαι αὐτὴν ἐκ ῥιζῶν αὐτῆς 10 καὶ ἰδοὺ πιαίνεται μὴ κατευθυνεῖ οὐχ ἅμα τῷ ἅψασθαι αὐτῆς ἄνεμον τὸν καύσωνα ξηρανθήσεται ξηρασίᾳ σὺν τῷ βώλῳ ἀνατολῆς αὐτῆς ξηρανθήσεται 1 Word came to me from the Lord: 2 A riddle, son of man, a parable for the men of Israel to interpret! 3 This shall be thy message from the Lord God: A great eagle there was, strong of wing, long of limb; thick and gay his plumage. And this eagle flew to Lebanon, where he robbed cedar of cedar’s very pith; 4 tore away its crown of leaves and carried it off to Merchant-land,[1] set it down in Traffic City. 5 Then back he flew to that same country, chose out both seed and seed-ground there; it was on a level lawn by a brimming stream he planted it. 6 When the plant grew, it proved to be a spreading vine, low of stature, and ever branch curled inwards and root struck downwards, yet vine it was, with sprig that burgeoned, shoot that sprang. 7 But now, here is a second eagle comes in sight, another great eagle, strong of wing, thick-plumed; and it seems as if the vine, in the garden where it grows, were stretching out its roots, waving its tendrils, to ask this second eagle for water instead. 8 What, when it was planted in ground so fair, by waters so abundant, with such promise of leaf and fruit, a vine so destined to greatness! 9 Will any good come of this? asks the Lord God. Nay, roots shall be plucked up, fruit ravaged, branches left to wither; fade it must, nor is it like to need great strength or many hands for its unearthing. 10 Take root is not thrive; rich soil or none, when the sirocco parches it, the vine must wither. 1 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens: 2 Fili hominis, propone ænigma, et narra parabolam ad domum Israël, 3 et dices: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Aquila grandis magnarum alarum, longo membrorum ductu, plena plumis et varietate, venit ad Libanum, et tulit medullam cedri. 4 Summitatem frondium ejus avulsit, et transportavit eam in terram Chanaan: in urbe negotiatorum posuit illam. 5 Et tulit de semine terræ, et posuit illud in terra pro semine, ut firmaret radicem super aquas multas: in superficie posuit illud. 6 Cumque germinasset, crevit in vineam latiorem, humili statura, respicientibus ramis ejus ad eam, et radices ejus sub illa erant: facta est ergo vinea, et fructificavit in palmites, et emisit propagines. 7 Et facta est aquila altera grandis, magnis alis, multisque plumis: et ecce vinea ista quasi mittens radices suas ad eam, palmites suos extendit ad illam, ut irrigaret eam de areolis germinis sui. 8 In terra bona super aquas multas plantata est, ut faciat frondes, et portet fructum, ut sit in vineam grandem. 9 Dic: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Ergone prosperabitur? nonne radices ejus evellet, et fructus ejus distringet, et siccabit omnes palmites germinis ejus, et arescet, et non in brachio grandi, neque in populo multo, ut evelleret eam radicitus? 10 Ecce plantata est: ergone prosperabitur? nonne, cum tetigerit eam ventus urens, siccabitur, et in areis germinis sui arescet?
11 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 12 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τὸν παραπικραίνοντα οὐκ ἐπίστασθε τί ἦν ταῦτα εἰπόν ὅταν ἔλθῃ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ λήμψεται τὸν βασιλέα αὐτῆς καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας αὐτῆς καὶ ἄξει αὐτοὺς πρὸς ἑαυτὸν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα 13 καὶ λήμψεται ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος τῆς βασιλείας καὶ διαθήσεται πρὸς αὐτὸν διαθήκην καὶ εἰσάξει αὐτὸν ἐν ἀρᾷ καὶ τοὺς ἡγουμένους τῆς γῆς λήμψεται 14 τοῦ γενέσθαι εἰς βασιλείαν ἀσθενῆ τὸ καθόλου μὴ ἐπαίρεσθαι τοῦ φυλάσσειν τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ καὶ ἱστάνειν αὐτήν 15 καὶ ἀποστήσεται ἀ{P'} αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἐξαποστέλλειν ἀγγέλους ἑαυτοῦ εἰς Αἴγυπτον τοῦ δοῦναι αὐτῷ ἵππους καὶ λαὸν πολύν εἰ κατευθυνεῖ εἰ διασωθήσεται ὁ ποιῶν ἐναντία καὶ παραβαίνων διαθήκην εἰ σωθήσεται 16 ζῶ ἐγώ λέγει κύριος ἐὰν μὴ ἐν ᾧ τόπῳ ὁ βασιλεὺς ὁ βασιλεύσας αὐτόν ὃς ἠτίμωσεν τὴν ἀράν μου καὶ ὃς παρέβη τὴν διαθήκην μου με{T'} αὐτοῦ ἐν μέσῳ Βαβυλῶνος τελευτήσει 17 καὶ οὐκ ἐν δυνάμει μεγάλῃ οὐ{D'} ἐν ὄχλῳ πολλῷ ποιήσει πρὸς αὐτὸν Φαραω πόλεμον ἐν χαρακοβολίᾳ καὶ ἐν οἰκοδομῇ βελοστάσεων τοῦ ἐξᾶραι ψυχάς 18 καὶ ἠτίμωσεν ὁρκωμοσίαν τοῦ παραβῆναι διαθήκην καὶ ἰδοὺ δέδωκεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα ταῦτα ἐποίησεν αὐτῷ μὴ σωθήσεται 19 διὰ τοῦτο εἰπόν τάδε λέγει κύριος ζῶ ἐγὼ ἐὰν μὴ τὴν διαθήκην μου ἣν παρέβη καὶ τὴν ὁρκωμοσίαν μου ἣν ἠτίμωσεν καὶ δώσω αὐτὰ εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ 20 καὶ ἐκπετάσω ἐ{P'} αὐτὸν τὸ δίκτυόν μου καὶ ἁλώσεται ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ αὐτοῦ 21 ἐν πάσῃ παρατάξει αὐτοῦ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ πεσοῦνται καὶ τοὺς καταλοίπους εἰς πάντα ἄνεμον διασπερῶ καὶ ἐπιγνώσεσθε διότι ἐγὼ κύριος λελάληκα 11 Then the Lord’s word came to me, 12 bidding me ask the rebel brood, Were they at a loss for the meaning of it? This tells how Nabuchodonosor came to Jerusalem, carried off the king and princes and took them away to Babylon; 13 yet spared a prince of the blood royal, making a treaty with him and exacting an oath of allegiance. All the flower of the citizens he carried away; 14 the kingdom should be submissive henceforward, and rebel no more, should keep troth with him loyally.[2] 15 Straightway the new king revolted from Nabuchodonosor, and sent envoys to Egypt, asking for horses, asking for the despatch of a great army in his support. Speeds he, finds he deliverance? Should broken faith avail him? 16 As I am a living God, the Lord says, Babylon that made a king of him, Babylon that trusted in his false oath of allegiance, shall be the place of his death. 17 Nor think that his enemy[3] will need great strength, a great muster of men, to overcome him, mound here, trench there, and the loss of many lives; 18 for the man that did so ill, held his faith a light thing and broke the bond he had set his hand to, there is no escape. 19 This doom the Lord pronounces: As I am a living God, false troth and broken treaty shall be the undoing of him! 20 My net is spread; I have him in the noose; Babylon for him! There I will call him to account for the dishonour he has done to my name by his treachery; 21 and all that escape with him, nay, his whole army, must fall by the sword, or survive scattered to the four winds; you shall learn what manner of God you worship. 11 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens: 12 Dic ad domum exasperantem: Nescitis quid ista significent? Dic: Ecce venit rex Babylonis in Jerusalem, et assumet regem et principes ejus, et adducet eos ad semetipsum in Babylonem. 13 Et tollet de semine regni, ferietque cum eo fœdus, et ab eo accipiet jusjurandum. Sed et fortes terræ tollet, 14 ut sit regnum humile, et non elevetur, sed custodiat pactum ejus, et servet illud. 15 Qui recedens ab eo misit nuntios ad Ægyptum, ut daret sibi equos et populum multum: numquid prosperabitur, vel consequetur salutem, qui fecit hæc? et qui dissolvit pactum, numquid effugiet? 16 Vivo ego, dicit Dominus Deus, quoniam in loco regis qui constituit eum regem, cujus fecit irritum juramentum, et solvit pactum quod habebat cum eo, in medio Babylonis morietur. 17 Et non in exercitu grandi, neque in populo multo, faciet contra eum Pharao prælium: in jactu aggeris, et in exstructione vallorum, ut interficiat animas multas. 18 Spreverat enim juramentum, ut solveret fœdus, et ecce dedit manum suam: et cum omnia hæc fecerit, non effugiet. 19 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Vivo ego, quoniam juramentum quod sprevit, et fœdus quod prævaricatus est, ponam in caput ejus. 20 Et expandam super eum rete meum, et comprehendetur in sagena mea: et adducam eum in Babylonem, et judicabo eum ibi in prævaricatione qua despexit me. 21 Et omnes profugi ejus, cum universo agmine suo, gladio cadent: residui autem in omnem ventum dispergentur: et scietis quia ego Dominus locutus sum.
22 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος καὶ λήμψομαι ἐγὼ ἐκ τῶν ἐπιλέκτων τῆς κέδρου ἐκ κορυφῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν ἀποκνιῶ καὶ καταφυτεύσω ἐγὼ ἐ{P'} ὄρος ὑψηλόν καὶ κρεμάσω αὐτὸν 23 ἐν ὄρει μετεώρῳ τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ καταφυτεύσω καὶ ἐξοίσει βλαστὸν καὶ ποιήσει καρπὸν καὶ ἔσται εἰς κέδρον μεγάλην καὶ ἀναπαύσεται ὑποκάτω αὐτοῦ πᾶν θηρίον καὶ πᾶν πετεινὸν ὑπὸ τὴν σκιὰν αὐτοῦ ἀναπαύσεται τὰ κλήματα αὐτοῦ ἀποκατασταθήσεται 24 καὶ γνώσονται πάντα τὰ ξύλα τοῦ πεδίου διότι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ ταπεινῶν ξύλον ὑψηλὸν καὶ ὑψῶν ξύλον ταπεινὸν καὶ ξηραίνων ξύλον χλωρὸν καὶ ἀναθάλλων ξύλον ξηρόν ἐγὼ κύριος λελάληκα καὶ ποιήσω 22 And here is a message from the Lord God: Pith of the tall cedar I will take and set it firm, young branch from its crest of branches I will snap off, and plant it on a mountain that stands high above the rest. 23 High in the hill-country of Israel I will plant it, and there it shall grow into a great cedar-tree; no bird on the wing but shall find rest under its shade, nestle among its branches; 24 till all the forest learns its lesson, that I, the Lord, bring high tree low, raise low tree high, wither the burgeoning trunk, give life to the barren. What the Lord promises, the Lord fulfils. 22 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Et sumam ego de medulla cedri sublimis, et ponam: de vertice ramorum ejus tenerum distringam, et plantabo super montem excelsum et eminentem. 23 In monte sublimi Israël plantabo illud, et erumpet in germen, et faciet fructum, et erit in cedrum magnam: et habitabunt sub ea omnes volucres, et universum volatile sub umbra frondium ejus nidificabit: 24 et scient omnia ligna regionis quia ego Dominus humiliavi lignum sublime, et exaltavi lignum humile; et siccavi lignum viride, et frondere feci lignum aridum. Ego Dominus locutus sum, et feci.
