1 καὶ ἐλεήσει κύριος τὸν Ιακωβ καὶ ἐκλέξεται ἔτι τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ ἀναπαύσονται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν καὶ ὁ γιώρας προστεθήσεται πρὸς αὐτοὺς καὶ προστεθήσεται πρὸς τὸν οἶκον Ιακωβ 2 καὶ λήμψονται αὐτοὺς ἔθνη καὶ εἰσάξουσιν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν καὶ κατακληρονομήσουσιν καὶ πληθυνθήσονται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς δούλους καὶ δούλας καὶ ἔσονται αἰχμάλωτοι οἱ αἰχμαλωτεύσαντες αὐτούς καὶ κυριευθήσονται οἱ κυριεύσαντες αὐτῶν 3 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἀναπαύσει σε ὁ θεὸς ἐκ τῆς ὀδύνης καὶ τοῦ θυμοῦ σου καὶ τῆς δουλείας σου τῆς σκληρᾶς ἧς ἐδούλευσας αὐτοῖς 4 καὶ λήμψῃ τὸν θρῆνον τοῦτον ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος καὶ ἐρεῖς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ πῶς ἀναπέπαυται ὁ ἀπαιτῶν καὶ ἀναπέπαυται ὁ ἐπισπουδαστής 5 συνέτριψεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν ζυγὸν τῶν ἁμαρτωλῶν τὸν ζυγὸν τῶν ἀρχόντων 6 πατάξας ἔθνος θυμῷ πληγῇ ἀνιάτῳ παίων ἔθνος πληγὴν θυμοῦ ἣ οὐκ ἐφείσατο 7 ἀνεπαύσατο πεποιθώς πᾶσα ἡ γῆ βοᾷ με{T'} εὐφροσύνης 8 καὶ τὰ ξύλα τοῦ Λιβάνου εὐφράνθησαν ἐπὶ σοὶ καὶ ἡ κέδρος τοῦ Λιβάνου ἀ{F'} οὗ σὺ κεκοίμησαι οὐκ ἀνέβη ὁ κόπτων ἡμᾶς 9 ὁ ᾅδης κάτωθεν ἐπικράνθη συναντήσας σοι συνηγέρθησάν σοι πάντες οἱ γίγαντες οἱ ἄρξαντες τῆς γῆς οἱ ἐγείραντες ἐκ τῶν θρόνων αὐτῶν πάντας βασιλεῖς ἐθνῶν 10 πάντες ἀποκριθήσονται καὶ ἐροῦσίν σοι καὶ σὺ ἑάλως ὥσπερ καὶ ἡμεῖς ἐν ἡμῖν δὲ κατελογίσθης 11 κατέβη δὲ εἰς ᾅδου ἡ δόξα σου ἡ πολλή σου εὐφροσύνη ὑποκάτω σου στρώσουσιν σῆψιν καὶ τὸ κατακάλυμμά σου σκώληξ 1 The day of her doom is close at hand, not long the respite that will be granted her.

And now the Lord will have pity on Jacob; on the sons of Israel, his chosen people as of old. On their own lands they shall live undisturbed, whose new inhabitants will make common cause with them, and throw in their lot with Jacob’s race. 2 Alien peoples will take them by the hand, to escort them back to their home; content now to be Israel’s servants and hand-maidens, the captors captive, the oppressors tributary now. 3 When that time comes, when the Lord gives thee respite from all the hardship and turmoil and drudgery of old days, 4 it will be thy turn to have thy say against the king of Babylon. Can it be (thou wilt say) that the tyranny is over, the exactions at an end? 5 The Lord has broken the staff in the hands of the wicked, the rod that oppressed us; 6 the rod whose mortal stroke once fell on the peoples so angrily, tamed the nations so cruelly, persecuted, and would not spare. 7 The whole earth, now, sinks back into ease; listen to its cry of rejoicing! 8 The very fir-trees and the cedars of Lebanon triumph over thee; no woodman comes near us any longer, since thou wast laid to rest. 9 The shadow world beneath is astir with preparation for thy coming; wakes up its giants to greet thee. The great ones of the world, that ruled the nations, rise up from the thrones where they sit, 10 hailing thee with a single voice, Thou too brought low as ourselves, thou too like us! 11 All thy pride sunk down into the world beneath, and there thy corpse lies, with the moth for its shroud, worms for its cerecloth.

Prope est ut veniat tempus ejus,
et dies ejus non elongabuntur.
Miserebitur enim Dominus Jacob,
et eliget adhuc de Israël,
et requiescere eos faciet super humum suam;
adjungetur advena ad eos,
et adhærebit domui Jacob.
2
Et tenebunt eos populi,
et adducent eos in locum suum;
et possidebit eos domus Israël
super terram Domini
in servos et ancillas:
et erunt capientes eos qui se ceperant,
et subjicient exactores suos.
3

Et erit in die illa: cum requiem dederit tibi Deus
a labore tuo, et a concussione tua,
et a servitute dura qua ante servisti,
4
sumes parabolam istam
contra regem Babylonis, et dices:
Quomodo cessavit exactor;
quievit tributum?
5
Contrivit Dominus baculum impiorum,
virgam dominantium,
6
cædentem populos in indignatione
plaga insanabili,
subjicientem in furore gentes,
persequentem crudeliter.
7
Conquievit et siluit omnis terra,
gavisa est et exsultavit;
8
abietes quoque lætatæ sunt super te,
et cedri Libani:
ex quo dormisti, non ascendet
qui succidat nos.
9
Infernus subter conturbatus est
in occursum adventus tui;
suscitavit tibi gigantes.
Omnes principes terræ
surrexerunt de soliis suis,
omnes principes nationum.
10
Universi respondebunt, et dicent tibi:
Et tu vulneratus es sicut et nos;
nostri similis effectus es.
11
Detracta est ad inferos superbia tua,
concidit cadaver tuum;
subter te sternetur tinea,
et operimentum tuum erunt vermes.
12 πῶς ἐξέπεσεν ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ὁ ἑωσφόρος ὁ πρωὶ ἀνατέλλων συνετρίβη εἰς τὴν γῆν ὁ ἀποστέλλων πρὸς πάντα τὰ ἔθνη 13 σὺ δὲ εἶπας ἐν τῇ διανοίᾳ σου εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν ἀναβήσομαι ἐπάνω τῶν ἄστρων τοῦ οὐρανοῦ θήσω τὸν θρόνον μου καθιῶ ἐν ὄρει ὑψηλῷ ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη τὰ ὑψηλὰ τὰ πρὸς βορρᾶν 14 ἀναβήσομαι ἐπάνω τῶν νεφελῶν ἔσομαι ὅμοιος τῷ ὑψίστῳ 15 νῦν δὲ εἰς ᾅδου καταβήσῃ καὶ εἰς τὰ θεμέλια τῆς γῆς 16 οἱ ἰδόντες σε θαυμάσουσιν ἐπὶ σοὶ καὶ ἐροῦσιν οὗτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὁ παροξύνων τὴν γῆν σείων βασιλεῖς 17 ὁ θεὶς τὴν οἰκουμένην ὅλην ἔρημον καὶ τὰς πόλεις καθεῖλεν τοὺς ἐν ἐπαγωγῇ οὐκ ἔλυσεν 18 πάντες οἱ βασιλεῖς τῶν ἐθνῶν ἐκοιμήθησαν ἐν τιμῇ ἄνθρωπος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ 19 σὺ δὲ ῥιφήσῃ ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ὡς νεκρὸς ἐβδελυγμένος μετὰ πολλῶν τεθνηκότων ἐκκεκεντημένων μαχαίραις καταβαινόντων εἰς ᾅδου ὃν τρόπον ἱμάτιον ἐν αἵματι πεφυρμένον οὐκ ἔσται καθαρόν 20 οὕτως οὐδὲ σὺ ἔσῃ καθαρός διότι τὴν γῆν μου ἀπώλεσας καὶ τὸν λαόν μου ἀπέκτεινας οὐ μὴ μείνῃς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα χρόνον σπέρμα πονηρόν 21 ἑτοίμασον τὰ τέκνα σου σφαγῆναι ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις τοῦ πατρός σου ἵνα μὴ ἀναστῶσιν καὶ τὴν γῆν κληρονομήσωσιν καὶ ἐμπλήσωσι τὴν γῆν πόλεων 22 καὶ ἐπαναστήσομαι αὐτοῖς λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ καὶ ἀπολῶ αὐτῶν ὄνομα καὶ κατάλειμμα καὶ σπέρμα τάδε λέγει κύριος 23 καὶ θήσω τὴν Βαβυλωνίαν ἔρημον ὥστε κατοικεῖν ἐχίνους καὶ ἔσται εἰς οὐδέν καὶ θήσω αὐτὴν πηλοῦ βάραθρον εἰς ἀπώλειαν 12 What, fallen from heaven, thou Lucifer, that once didst herald the dawn? Prostrate on the earth, that didst once bring nations to their knees? 13 I will scale the heavens (such was thy thought); I will set my throne higher than God’s stars, take my seat at his own trysting-place, at the meeting of the northern hills;[1] 14 I will soar above the level of the clouds, the rival of the most High. 15 Thine, instead, to be dragged down into the world beneath, into the heart of the abyss. 16 Who that sees thee there, but will peer down at thee and read thy story: Can this be the man who once shook the world, and made thrones totter; 17 who turned earth into a desert, its cities into ruins; never granted prisoner release? 18 For those other kings, honourable burial, each in his own palace; 19 thee the grave itself rejects, like a withered root, like a thing unclean. Rots thy corpse unrecognized, beneath yonder coverlet of men slain, that went down to the deep pit together; 20 no fellowship hast thou with those others, no share in their sepulture, thou who didst lead thy country to ruin, thou, who didst bring destruction on thy people. The posterity of the wicked shall be nameless for ever; 21 for the guilt they have inherited, his sons too must be slain, they must not live to make the land their own, and people the world with cities. 22 A message from the Lord of hosts: Now I mean to take arms against them, to destroy Babylon name and fame, root and branch. 23 I will make the place over to the hedge-hog,[2] turn it into standing pools; I will sweep it clean, the Lord of hosts says, sweep it clean away. 12
Quomodo cecidisti de cælo,
Lucifer, qui mane oriebaris?
corruisti in terram,
qui vulnerabas gentes?
13
Qui dicebas in corde tuo:
In cælum conscendam,
super astra Dei
exaltabo solium meum;
sedebo in monte testamenti,
in lateribus aquilonis;
14
ascendam super altitudinem nubium,
similis ero Altissimo?
15
Verumtamen ad infernum detraheris,
in profundum laci.
16
Qui te viderint, ad te inclinabuntur,
teque prospicient:
Numquid iste est vir qui conturbavit terram,
qui concussit regna,
17
qui posuit orbem desertum,
et urbes ejus destruxit,
vinctis ejus non aperuit carcerem?
18
Omnes reges gentium
universi dormierunt in gloria,
vir in domo sua;
19
tu autem projectus es de sepulchro tuo,
quasi stirps inutilis pollutus,
et obvolutus cum his qui interfecti sunt gladio,
et descenderunt ad fundamenta laci,
quasi cadaver putridum.
20
Non habebis consortium, neque cum eis in sepultura;
tu enim terram tuam disperdidisti,
tu populum tuum occidisti:
non vocabitur in æternum
semen pessimorum.
21
Præparate filios ejus occisioni,
in iniquitate patrum suorum:
non consurgent, nec hæreditabunt terram,
neque implebunt faciem orbis civitatum.
22
Et consurgam super eos,
dicit Dominus exercituum;
et perdam Babylonis nomen, et reliquias,
et germen, et progeniem, dicit Dominus;
23
et ponam eam in possessionem ericii,
et in paludes aquarum,
et scopabo eam in scopa terens,
dicit Dominus exercituum.
24 τάδε λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ ὃν τρόπον εἴρηκα οὕτως ἔσται καὶ ὃν τρόπον βεβούλευμαι οὕτως μενεῖ 25 τοῦ ἀπολέσαι τοὺς Ἀσσυρίους ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς τῆς ἐμῆς καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ὀρέων μου καὶ ἔσονται εἰς καταπάτημα καὶ ἀφαιρεθήσεται ἀ{P'} αὐτῶν ὁ ζυγὸς αὐτῶν καὶ τὸ κῦδος αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τῶν ὤμων ἀφαιρεθήσεται 26 αὕτη ἡ βουλή ἣν βεβούλευται κύριος ἐπὶ τὴν οἰκουμένην ὅλην καὶ αὕτη ἡ χεὶρ ἡ ὑψηλὴ ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς οἰκουμένης 27 ἃ γὰρ ὁ θεὸς ὁ ἅγιος βεβούλευται τίς διασκεδάσει καὶ τὴν χεῖρα τὴν ὑψηλὴν τίς ἀποστρέψει 24 And now the Lord of hosts has taken an oath, his doom shall be executed, his design shall stand: 25 In this my own land I will break the power of Assyria,[3] upon these hills I will trample him under foot. Gone his yoke; there shall be no more shouldering his burden; 26 such purpose I have for the world’s ordering; my hand once lifted, all the nations must bow. 27 The Lord’s decree, who shall annul it? The Lord’s power, who shall thwart it? 24

Juravit Dominus exercituum, dicens:
Si non, ut putavi, ita erit;
et quomodo mente tractavi,
25
sic eveniet:
ut conteram Assyrium in terra mea,
et in montibus meis conculcem eum;
et auferetur ab eis jugum ejus,
et onus illius ab humero eorum tolletur.
26
Hoc consilium quod cogitavi super omnem terram;
et hæc est manus extenta super universas gentes.
27
Dominus enim exercituum decrevit; et quis poterit infirmare?
et manus ejus extenta; et quis avertet eam?
28 τοῦ ἔτους οὗ ἀπέθανεν Αχαζ ὁ βασιλεύς ἐγενήθη τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο 29 μὴ εὐφρανθείητε πάντες οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι συνετρίβη γὰρ ὁ ζυγὸς τοῦ παίοντος ὑμᾶς ἐκ γὰρ σπέρματος ὄφεων ἐξελεύσεται ἔκγονα ἀσπίδων καὶ τὰ ἔκγονα αὐτῶν ἐξελεύσονται ὄφεις πετόμενοι 30 καὶ βοσκηθήσονται πτωχοὶ δ{I'} αὐτοῦ πτωχοὶ δὲ ἄνδρες ἐ{P'} εἰρήνης ἀναπαύσονται ἀνελεῖ δὲ λιμῷ τὸ σπέρμα σου καὶ τὸ κατάλειμμά σου ἀνελεῖ 31 ὀλολύζετε πύλαι πόλεων κεκραγέτωσαν πόλεις τεταραγμέναι οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι πάντες ὅτι καπνὸς ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἔρχεται καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν τοῦ εἶναι 28 And in the year of king Achaz’s death, a fresh burden was imposed: 29 Too soon, Philistia, thou wouldst make public holiday over the breaking of the rod that smote thee. The serpent has gone, but he has left a basilisk stock behind him; a race that can catch birds on the wing. 30 Here, then, shall be food for the very poorest; beggar man shall lie down in safety; thee I will destroy with famine root and branch, slay all the remnant that is left in thee. 31 All thy gates, now, must echo with lament, all thy cities ring with cries; all Philistia swoons away. From the north a smoke comes ever nearer, signal of an army none may escape. 28 In anno quo mortuus est rex Achaz, factum est onus istud: 29

Ne lætaris, Philisthæa omnis tu,
quoniam comminuta est virga percussoris tui;
de radice enim colubri egredietur regulus,
et semen ejus absorbens volucrem.
30
Et pascentur primogeniti pauperum,
et pauperes fiducialiter requiescent;
et interire faciam in fame radicem tuam,
et reliquias tuas interficiam.
31
Ulula, porta; clama civitas;
prostrata est Philisthæa omnis;
ab aquilone enim fumus veniet,
et non est qui effugiet agmen ejus.
32 καὶ τί ἀποκριθήσονται βασιλεῖς ἐθνῶν ὅτι κύριος ἐθεμελίωσεν Σιων καὶ δ{I'} αὐτοῦ σωθήσονται οἱ ταπεινοὶ τοῦ λαοῦ 32 Our news when the world asks, what message? Tell them Sion never rested in the Lord so surely; here be friendless folk that trust in him. 32
Et quid respondebitur nuntiis gentis?
Quia Dominus fundavit Sion,
et in ipso sperabunt pauperes populi ejus.
