1 ὅρασις Αἰγύπτου ἰδοὺ κύριος κάθηται ἐπὶ νεφέλης κούφης καὶ ἥξει εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ σεισθήσεται τὰ χειροποίητα Αἰγύπτου ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ καρδία αὐτῶν ἡττηθήσεται ἐν αὐτοῖς 2 καὶ ἐπεγερθήσονται Αἰγύπτιοι ἐ{P'} Αἰγυπτίους καὶ πολεμήσει ἄνθρωπος τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἄνθρωπος τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ πόλις ἐπὶ πόλιν καὶ νομὸς ἐπὶ νομόν 3 καὶ ταραχθήσεται τὸ πνεῦμα τῶν Αἰγυπτίων ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ τὴν βουλὴν αὐτῶν διασκεδάσω καὶ ἐπερωτήσουσιν τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ἀγάλματα αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς ἐκ τῆς γῆς φωνοῦντας καὶ τοὺς ἐγγαστριμύθους 4 καὶ παραδώσω Αἴγυπτον εἰς χεῖρας ἀνθρώπων κυρίων σκληρῶν καὶ βασιλεῖς σκληροὶ κυριεύσουσιν αὐτῶν τάδε λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ 5 καὶ πίονται οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ὕδωρ τὸ παρὰ θάλασσαν ὁ δὲ ποταμὸς ἐκλείψει καὶ ξηρανθήσεται 6 καὶ ἐκλείψουσιν οἱ ποταμοὶ καὶ αἱ διώρυγες τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ξηρανθήσεται πᾶσα συναγωγὴ ὕδατος καὶ ἐν παντὶ ἕλει καλάμου καὶ παπύρου 7 καὶ τὸ ἄχι τὸ χλωρὸν πᾶν τὸ κύκλῳ τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ πᾶν τὸ σπειρόμενον διὰ τοῦ ποταμοῦ ξηρανθήσεται ἀνεμόφθορον 8 καὶ στενάξουσιν οἱ ἁλεεῖς καὶ στενάξουσιν πάντες οἱ βάλλοντες ἄγκιστρον εἰς τὸν ποταμόν καὶ οἱ βάλλοντες σαγήνας καὶ οἱ ἀμφιβολεῖς πενθήσουσιν 9 καὶ αἰσχύνη λήμψεται τοὺς ἐργαζομένους τὸ λίνον τὸ σχιστὸν καὶ τοὺς ἐργαζομένους τὴν βύσσον 10 καὶ ἔσονται οἱ διαζόμενοι αὐτὰ ἐν ὀδύνῃ καὶ πάντες οἱ τὸν ζῦθον ποιοῦντες λυπηθήσονται καὶ τὰς ψυχὰς πονέσουσιν 1 What burden for Egypt? See where the Lord comes into Egypt, with the cloud-drift for his chariot, and all the false gods of Egypt tremble, the very heart of Egypt melts away! 2 Egyptians I will embroil with Egyptians; each man will turn on his neighbour, one city, one kingdom on another. 3 The spirit of Egypt shall fail her, and I will daze her wits, till men go about consulting oracle and diviner, wizard and soothsayer. 4 Tyrants for Egypt’s masters, a fierce king to rule over it; the Lord of hosts has decreed it. 5 Waters of the sea shall ebb, river waters be parched and dried up, 6 the brooks failing, the channels, with their high banks,[1] flowing in a thin stream, reed and sedge withered away. 7 Laid bare, yonder river-bed, from its source; fade the crops its moisture nourished, fade and dwindle to nothing. 8 Sad days for the fisher-folk; never a hook cast, never a net sunk, all is grief and repining. 9 Disappointed of their trade, the men who worked in flax, combing and weaving it so cunningly; 10 in those brackish swamps there are no fish-ponds a-making now.[2] 1 Onus Ægypti.

Ecce Dominus ascendet super nubem levem,
et ingredietur Ægyptum,
et commovebuntur simulacra Ægypti a facie ejus,
et cor Ægypti tabescet in medio ejus,
2
et concurrere faciam Ægyptios adversus Ægyptios;
et pugnabit vir contra fratrem suum, et vir contra amicum suum,
civitas adversus civitatem, regnum adversus regnum.
3
Et dirumpetur spiritus Ægypti in visceribus ejus,
et consilium ejus præcipitabo;
et interrogabunt simulacra sua, et divinos suos,
et pythones, et ariolos.
4
Et tradam Ægyptum in manu dominorum crudelium,
et rex fortis dominabitur eorum,
ait Dominus Deus exercituum.
5
Et arescet aqua de mari,
et fluvius desolabitur atque siccabitur.
6
Et deficient flumina,
attenuabuntur et siccabuntur rivi aggerum,
calamus et juncus marcescet.
7
Nudabitur alveus rivi a fonte suo,
et omnis sementis irrigua
siccabitur, arescet, et non erit.
8
Et mœrebunt piscatores,
et lugebunt omnes mittentes in flumen hamum;
et expandentes rete super faciem aquarum emarcescent.
9
Confundentur qui operabantur linum,
pectentes et texentes subtilia.
10
Et erunt irrigua ejus flaccentia:
omnes qui faciebant lacunas ad capiendos pisces.
11 καὶ μωροὶ ἔσονται οἱ ἄρχοντες Τάνεως οἱ σοφοὶ σύμβουλοι τοῦ βασιλέως ἡ βουλὴ αὐτῶν μωρανθήσεται πῶς ἐρεῖτε τῷ βασιλεῖ υἱοὶ συνετῶν ἡμεῖς υἱοὶ βασιλέων τῶν ἐξ ἀρχῆς 12 ποῦ εἰσιν νῦν οἱ σοφοί σου καὶ ἀναγγειλάτωσάν σοι καὶ εἰπάτωσαν τί βεβούλευται κύριος σαβαωθ ἐ{P'} Αἴγυπτον 13 ἐξέλιπον οἱ ἄρχοντες Τάνεως καὶ ὑψώθησαν οἱ ἄρχοντες Μέμφεως καὶ πλανήσουσιν Αἴγυπτον κατὰ φυλάς 14 κύριος γὰρ ἐκέρασεν αὐτοῖς πνεῦμα πλανήσεως καὶ ἐπλάνησαν Αἴγυπτον ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἔργοις αὐτῶν ὡς πλανᾶται ὁ μεθύων καὶ ὁ ἐμῶν ἅμα 15 καὶ οὐκ ἔσται τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις ἔργον ὃ ποιήσει κεφαλὴν καὶ οὐράν ἀρχὴν καὶ τέλος 11 Nonplussed, all the princes of Tanis; all Pharao’s wise counsellors must needs give him a fool’s answer. Where is that inheritance of learning they boast, come down from ancient kings? 12 What has become of thy wise men, Pharao? Let them give thee news, let them tell thee what the Lord means to do with Egypt. 13 No, the princes of Tanis are nonplussed; degenerate, the lords of Memphis; Egypt is deceived in her great men, that should have been the corner-stone of her commonwealth.[3] 14 The Lord has mazed her wits; fuddled brains of drunkard had been as well advised; 15 head and tail, reed and stubborn branch, in Egypt’s troubled counsels avail alike.[4] 11
Stulti principes Taneos,
sapientes consiliarii Pharaonis
dederunt consilium insipiens.
Quomodo dicetis Pharaoni:
Filius sapientium ego,
filius regum antiquorum?
12
Ubi nunc sunt sapientes tui?
annuntient tibi, et indicent
quid cogitaverit Dominus exercituum super Ægyptum.
13
Stulti facti sunt principes Taneos,
emarcuerunt principes Mempheos;
deceperunt Ægyptum, angulum populorum ejus.
14
Dominus miscuit in medio ejus spiritum vertiginis;
et errare fecerunt Ægyptum in omni opere suo,
sicut errat ebrius et vomens.
15
Et non erit Ægypto opus
quod faciat caput et caudam,
incurvantem et refrenantem.
16 τῇ δὲ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἔσονται οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ὡς γυναῖκες ἐν φόβῳ καὶ ἐν τρόμῳ ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς χειρὸς κυρίου σαβαωθ ἣν αὐτὸς ἐπιβαλεῖ αὐτοῖς 17 καὶ ἔσται ἡ χώρα τῶν Ιουδαίων τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις εἰς φόβητρον πᾶς ὃς ἐὰν ὀνομάσῃ αὐτὴν αὐτοῖς φοβηθήσονται διὰ τὴν βουλήν ἣν βεβούλευται κύριος ἐ{P'} αὐτήν 18 τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἔσονται πέντε πόλεις ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ λαλοῦσαι τῇ γλώσσῃ τῇ Χανανίτιδι καὶ ὀμνύουσαι τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου πόλι{S-}ασεδεκ κληθήσεται ἡ μία πόλις 19 τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἔσται θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν χώρᾳ Αἰγυπτίων καὶ στήλη πρὸς τὸ ὅριον αὐτῆς τῷ κυρίῳ 20 καὶ ἔσται εἰς σημεῖον εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα κυρίῳ ἐν χώρᾳ Αἰγύπτου ὅτι κεκράξονται πρὸς κύριον διὰ τοὺς θλίβοντας αὐτούς καὶ ἀποστελεῖ αὐτοῖς κύριος ἄνθρωπον ὃς σώσει αὐτούς κρίνων σώσει αὐτούς 21 καὶ γνωστὸς ἔσται κύριος τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις καὶ γνώσονται οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι τὸν κύριον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ποιήσουσιν θυσίας καὶ εὔξονται εὐχὰς τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ ἀποδώσουσιν 16 Weak as a woman Egypt shall be, when that day comes, dazed and terrified, to see the Lord of hosts lift his hand so threateningly. 17 Upon Juda Egypt must needs look with awe; fear is in the very name of it, as they scan the future; what means the Lord of hosts now? 18 Cities five there shall be in the land of Egypt that talk with the speech of Chanaan, and take oaths in the name of the Lord of hosts; a city that bears the sun’s name among them. 19 There will be an altar set up to the Lord for all Egypt to see, and at its frontier a pillar dedicated to him, 20 a trophy, there, in Egypt, bringing the Lord of hosts to mind. Cry they out to him, when they suffer oppression, he will give them a saviour, a champion, to deliver them. 21 Thus the Lord will reveal himself to Egypt; the Egyptians, when that day comes, will acknowledge him, doing him worship with sacrifices and offerings, will make vows to the Lord and perform them. 16
In die illa erit Ægyptus quasi mulieres;
et stupebunt, et timebunt
a facie commotionis manus Domini exercituum,
quam ipse movebit super eam.
17
Et erit terra Juda
Ægypto in pavorem;
omnis qui illius fuerit recordatus pavebit
a facie consilii Domini exercituum,
quod ipse cogitavit super eam.
18
In die illa erunt quinque civitates
in terra Ægypti
loquentes lingua Chanaan,
et jurantes per Dominum exercituum:
Civitas solis vocabitur una.
19
In die illa erit altare Domini
in medio terræ Ægypti,
et titulus Domini juxta terminum ejus.
20
Erit in signum et in testimonium Domino exercituum
in terra Ægypti;
clamabunt enim ad Dominum a facie tribulationis,
et mittet eis salvatorem
et propugnatorem qui liberet eos.
21
Et cognoscetur Dominus ab Ægypto,
et cognoscent Ægyptii Dominum
in die illa;
et colent eum in hostiis et in muneribus;
et vota vovebunt Domino, et solvent.
22 καὶ πατάξει κύριος τοὺς Αἰγυπτίους πληγῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἰάσεται αὐτοὺς ἰάσει καὶ ἐπιστραφήσονται πρὸς κύριον καὶ εἰσακούσεται αὐτῶν καὶ ἰάσεται αὐτούς 23 τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἔσται ὁδὸς Αἰγύπτου πρὸς Ἀσσυρίους καὶ εἰσελεύσονται Ἀσσύριοι εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ Αἰγύπτιοι πορεύσονται πρὸς Ἀσσυρίους καὶ δουλεύσουσιν οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι τοῖς Ἀσσυρίοις 24 τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἔσται Ισραηλ τρίτος ἐν τοῖς Ἀσσυρίοις καὶ ἐν τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις εὐλογημένος ἐν τῇ γῇ 25 ἣν εὐλόγησεν κύριος σαβαωθ λέγων εὐλογημένος ὁ λαός μου ὁ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ ὁ ἐν Ἀσσυρίοις καὶ ἡ κληρονομία μου Ισραηλ 22 First calamity, then healing; when they come back to the Lord, he will relent and restore. 23 There will be a high-road, then, between Egypt and the Assyrians; either shall visit other, and Egypt under Assyria be at peace.[5] 24 And with these a third people shall be matched; who but Israel, source of the whole world’s happiness? 25 Such blessing the Lord of hosts has pronounced upon it, Blessed be my people in Egypt, and the home I have made for the Assyrian to dwell in; but Israel is the land of my choice. 22
Et percutiet Dominus Ægyptum plaga,
et sanabit eam;
et revertentur ad Dominum,
et placabitur eis, et sanabit eos.
23
In die illa erit via
de Ægypto in Assyrios;
et intrabit Assyrius Ægyptum,
et Ægyptius in Assyrios,
et servient Ægyptii Assur.
24
In die illa erit Israël tertius
Ægyptio et Assyrio;
benedictio in medio terræ
25
cui benedixit Dominus exercituum, dicens:
Benedictus populus meus Ægypti,
et opus manuum mearum Assyrio;
hæreditas autem mea Israël.
