1 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ ἑνδεκάτῳ ἔτει μιᾷ τοῦ μηνὸς ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 2 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ἀν{Q'} ὧν εἶπεν Σορ ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ εὖγε συνετρίβη ἀπόλωλεν τὰ ἔθνη ἐπεστράφη πρός με ἡ πλήρης ἠρήμωται 3 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπὶ σέ Σορ καὶ ἀνάξω ἐπὶ σὲ ἔθνη πολλά ὡς ἀναβαίνει ἡ θάλασσα τοῖς κύμασιν αὐτῆς 4 καὶ καταβαλοῦσιν τὰ τείχη Σορ καὶ καταβαλοῦσι τοὺς πύργους σου καὶ λικμήσω τὸν χοῦν αὐτῆς ἀ{P'} αὐτῆς καὶ δώσω αὐτὴν εἰς λεωπετρίαν 5 ψυγμὸς σαγηνῶν ἔσται ἐν μέσῳ θαλάσσης ὅτι ἐγὼ λελάληκα λέγει κύριος καὶ ἔσται εἰς προνομὴν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν 6 καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῆς αἱ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ μαχαίρᾳ ἀναιρεθήσονται καὶ γνώσονται ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος 1 In king Sedecias’ eleventh year, on the first day of the … month, word came to me from the Lord: 2 Son of man, what was the cry of Tyre over Jerusalem? Joy, joy, the toll-gate[1] of the world has been broken down! It is mine now; I shall grow fat on Jerusalem’s ruin! 3 This doom the Lord God pronounces: Have at thee, Tyre! I mean to bring hordes of nations marching on thee, like wave upon wave of the sea. 4 Walls of Tyre they shall break down, and towers of her overthrow; all the soil I will scrape away from her, and leave her bare rock, 5 doom her to be but an island where fisher-folk dry their nets; I, the Lord God, will give her over as a prey to all the nations. 6 Daughter-towns that stand in her territory shall be put to the sword, and learn my power at last. 1 Et factum est in undecimo anno, prima mensis: factus est sermo Domini ad me, dicens: 2

Fili hominis, pro eo quod dixit Tyrus de Jerusalem:
Euge, confractæ sunt portæ populorum,
conversa est ad me:
implebor; deserta est:
propterea hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce ego super te, Tyre,
et ascendere faciam ad te gentes multas,
sicut ascendit mare fluctuans.
Et dissipabunt muros Tyri,
et destruent turres ejus:
et radam pulverem ejus de ea,
et dabo eam in limpidissimam petram.
Siccatio sagenarum erit in medio maris,
quia ego locutus sum, ait Dominus Deus:
et erit in direptionem gentibus.
Filiæ quoque ejus quæ sunt in agro,
gladio interficientur:
et scient quia ego Dominus.
7 ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ἐπὶ σέ Σορ τὸν Ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος ἀπὸ τοῦ βορρᾶ βασιλεὺς βασιλέων ἐστίν με{Q'} ἵππων καὶ ἁρμάτων καὶ ἱππέων καὶ συναγωγῆς ἐθνῶν πολλῶν σφόδρα 8 οὗτος τὰς θυγατέρας σου τὰς ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ μαχαίρᾳ ἀνελεῖ καὶ δώσει ἐπὶ σὲ προφυλακὴν καὶ περιοικοδομήσει καὶ ποιήσει ἐπὶ σὲ κύκλῳ χάρακα καὶ περίστασιν ὅπλων καὶ τὰς λόγχας αὐτοῦ ἀπέναντί σου δώσει 9 τὰ τείχη σου καὶ τοὺς πύργους σου καταβαλεῖ ἐν ταῖς μαχαίραις αὐτοῦ 10 ἀπὸ τοῦ πλήθους τῶν ἵππων αὐτοῦ κατακαλύψει σε ὁ κονιορτὸς αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς φωνῆς τῶν ἱππέων αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν τροχῶν τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτοῦ σεισθήσεται τὰ τείχη σου εἰσπορευομένου αὐτοῦ τὰς πύλας σου ὡς εἰσπορευόμενος εἰς πόλιν ἐκ πεδίου 11 ἐν ταῖς ὁπλαῖς τῶν ἵππων αὐτοῦ καταπατήσουσίν σου πάσας τὰς πλατείας τὸν λαόν σου μαχαίρᾳ ἀνελεῖ καὶ τὴν ὑπόστασίν σου τῆς ἰσχύος ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν κατάξει 12 καὶ προνομεύσει τὴν δύναμίν σου καὶ σκυλεύσει τὰ ὑπάρχοντά σου καὶ καταβαλεῖ σου τὰ τείχη καὶ τοὺς οἴκους σου τοὺς ἐπιθυμητοὺς καθελεῖ καὶ τοὺς λίθους σου καὶ τὰ ξύλα σου καὶ τὸν χοῦν σου εἰς μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης ἐμβαλεῖ 13 καὶ καταλύσει τὸ πλῆθος τῶν μουσικῶν σου καὶ ἡ φωνὴ τῶν ψαλτηρίων σου οὐ μὴ ἀκουσθῇ ἔτι 14 καὶ δώσω σε εἰς λεωπετρίαν ψυγμὸς σαγηνῶν ἔσῃ οὐ μὴ οἰκοδομηθῇς ἔτι ὅτι ἐγὼ ἐλάλησα λέγει κύριος 7 Here is Nabuchodonosor of Babylon, the Lord says, a king that has kings for his vassals, marching from the north with horse and chariot, with his knights and all his retinue, a great army of men, 8 to put thy daughter-towns to the sword, compass thee with siege-works and raise a mound about thee. A barrier of shields he will raise under thy walls, 9 ply engine and battering-ram against them, and bring down thy towers with grappling-irons. 10 Of horses such a company, as shall cover thee all with dust; with cries of horsemen and rattle of chariot-wheels entering thy gates, thy walls shall ring again like the walls of a breached city. 11 Never a street of thine but must echo with hoofs; butchered thy citizens shall be, thy fair pillars cast down, 12 thy wealth plundered, thy merchandise taken for spoil. Down shall come walls, palaces totter in ruins; stone and timber and mortar of thine shall strew the seas. 13 Hushed the murmur of thy songs; never more the sound of harp shall be heard in thee. 14 Bare rock thou shalt be, for fisher-folk to dry their nets on; there shall be no building thee again, says the Lord God. 7

Quia hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce ego adducam ad Tyrum
Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis ab aquilone,
regem regum,
cum equis, et curribus, et equitibus,
et cœtu, populoque magno.
Filias tuas quæ sunt in agro, gladio interficiet,
et circumdabit te munitionibus,
et comportabit aggerem in gyro,
et elevabit contra te clypeum:
et vineas et arietes temperabit in muros tuos,
et turres tuas destruet in armatura sua.
Inundatione equorum ejus operiet te pulvis eorum:
a sonitu equitum, et rotarum, et curruum, movebuntur muri tui,
cum ingressus fuerit portas tuas quasi per introitum urbis dissipatæ.
Ungulis equorum suorum conculcabit omnes plateas tuas:
populum tuum gladio cædet,
et statuæ tuæ nobiles in terram corruent.
Vastabunt opes tuas,
diripient negotiationes tuas,
et destruent muros tuos,
et domos tuas præclaras subvertent:
et lapides tuos, et ligna tua, et pulverem tuum
in medio aquarum ponent.
Et quiescere faciam multitudinem canticorum tuorum:
et sonitus cithararum tuarum non audietur amplius.
Et dabo te in limpidissimam petram,
siccatio sagenarum eris,
nec ædificaberis ultra,
quia ego locutus sum, ait Dominus Deus.
15 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος κύριος τῇ Σορ οὐκ ἀπὸ φωνῆς τῆς πτώσεώς σου ἐν τῷ στενάξαι τραυματίας ἐν τῷ σπάσαι μάχαιραν ἐν μέσῳ σου σεισθήσονται αἱ νῆσοι 16 καὶ καταβήσονται ἀπὸ τῶν θρόνων αὐτῶν πάντες οἱ ἄρχοντες ἐκ τῶν ἐθνῶν τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἀφελοῦνται τὰς μίτρας ἀπὸ τῶν κεφαλῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τὸν ἱματισμὸν τὸν ποικίλον αὐτῶν ἐκδύσονται ἐκστάσει ἐκστήσονται ἐπὶ γῆν καθεδοῦνται καὶ φοβηθήσονται τὴν ἀπώλειαν αὐτῶν καὶ στενάξουσιν ἐπὶ σέ 17 καὶ λήμψονται ἐπὶ σὲ θρῆνον καὶ ἐροῦσίν σοι πῶς κατελύθης ἐκ θαλάσσης ἡ πόλις ἡ ἐπαινεστὴ ἡ δοῦσα τὸν φόβον αὐτῆς πᾶσι τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν αὐτήν 18 καὶ φοβηθήσονται αἱ νῆσοι ἀ{F'} ἡμέρας πτώσεώς σου 15 This too: The very isles shall echo with the crash of thy fall, ring with the cries of the wounded dying in thy streets. 16 Down from their thrones they shall come, all the lords of the sea-harbours, throw robe aside, broidered coats lay down; wrapped in dismay they sit on the bare ground, at the sudden fall of thee bewildered and amazed. 17 And thus they shall sing thy dirge: What a doom was thine, sea-built city, far renowned! Mistress of the seas, mother of a race that all held in dread! 18 Day of terror, that affrights the very ships, fills the islands with alarm, to see no ships leave thy harbour now! 15
Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Tyro:
Numquid non a sonitu ruinæ tuæ,
et gemitu interfectorum tuorum,
cum occisi fuerint in medio tui,
commovebuntur insulæ?
Et descendent de sedibus suis omnes principes maris,
et auferent exuvias suas,
et vestimenta sua varia abjicient,
et induentur stupore:
in terra sedebunt,
et attoniti super repentino casu tuo admirabuntur:
et assumentes super te lamentum, dicent tibi:
Quomodo peristi, quæ habitas in mari, urbs inclyta,
quæ fuisti fortis in mari cum habitatoribus tuis,
quos formidabant universi?
Nunc stupebunt naves in die pavoris tui,
et turbabuntur insulæ in mari,
eo quod nullus egrediatur ex te.
19 ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος κύριος ὅταν δῶ σε πόλιν ἠρημωμένην ὡς τὰς πόλεις τὰς μὴ κατοικηθησομένας ἐν τῷ ἀναγαγεῖν με ἐπὶ σὲ τὴν ἄβυσσον καὶ κατακαλύψῃ σε ὕδωρ πολύ 20 καὶ καταβιβάσω σε πρὸς τοὺς καταβαίνοντας εἰς βόθρον πρὸς λαὸν αἰῶνος καὶ κατοικιῶ σε εἰς βάθη τῆς γῆς ὡς ἔρημον αἰώνιον μετὰ καταβαινόντων εἰς βόθρον ὅπως μὴ κατοικηθῇς μηδὲ ἀνασταθῇς ἐπὶ γῆς ζωῆς 21 ἀπώλειάν σε δώσω καὶ οὐχ ὑπάρξεις ἔτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα λέγει κύριος κύριος 19 This too: Desolate thou shalt be, thy place among the lost cities; higher and higher yet the fathomless ocean shall rise about thee, swallowing thee up under its waters. 20 Among the dead thy place is, that go down into the grave, where time is not; entombed with those other ruined cities in the depths of earth, tenanted no longer. The living world shall see the glory of my presence, 21 but thou shalt have no part in it, thou shalt no longer be; who searches for thee will search evermore in vain, says the Lord God.[2] 19
Quia hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Cum dedero te urbem desolatam,
sicut civitates quæ non habitantur;
et adduxero super te abyssum,
et operuerint te aquæ multæ;
et detraxero te cum his qui descendunt in lacum
ad populum sempiternum;
et collocavero te in terra novissima sicut solitudines veteres,
cum his qui deducuntur in lacum,
ut non habiteris;
porro cum dedero gloriam in terra viventium:
in nihilum redigam te, et non eris:
et requisita non invenieris ultra in sempiternum,
dicit Dominus Deus.
