1 οὐαὶ τέκνα ἀποστάται τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐποιήσατε βουλὴν οὐ δ{I'} ἐμοῦ καὶ συνθήκας οὐ διὰ τοῦ πνεύματός μου προσθεῖναι ἁμαρτίας ἐ{F'} ἁμαρτίαις 2 οἱ πορευόμενοι καταβῆναι εἰς Αἴγυπτον ἐμὲ δὲ οὐκ ἐπηρώτησαν τοῦ βοηθηθῆναι ὑπὸ Φαραω καὶ σκεπασθῆναι ὑπὸ Αἰγυπτίων 3 ἔσται γὰρ ὑμῖν ἡ σκέπη Φαραω εἰς αἰσχύνην καὶ τοῖς πεποιθόσιν ἐ{P'} Αἴγυπτον ὄνειδος 4 ὅτι εἰσὶν ἐν Τάνει ἀρχηγοὶ ἄγγελοι πονηροί μάτην κοπιάσουσιν 5 πρὸς λαόν ὃς οὐκ ὠφελήσει αὐτοὺς οὔτε εἰς βοήθειαν οὔτε εἰς ὠφέλειαν ἀλλὰ εἰς αἰσχύνην καὶ ὄνειδος 1 Out upon you, the Lord says, what treason is this? Here be plans afoot that were never mine, webs a-weaving, and the pattern none of my choice. Trust me, you do but add to your guilt. 2 What are these journeyings down into Egypt, and I never consulted? Think you to find refuge in the strength of Pharao, look you to Egypt for shelter? 3 Strength of Pharao shall play you false, nor shelter Egypt bring you, but shame. 4 Princes of thine in Tanis, ambassadors from thee making their way to Hanes! 5 Fruitless errand to a folk that could not save them; no help, no comfort there, only failure and mockery. 1

Væ filii desertores, dicit Dominus,
ut faceretis consilium, et non ex me,
et ordiremini telam, et non per spiritum meum,
ut adderetis peccatum super peccatum;
2
qui ambulatis ut descendatis in Ægyptum,
et os meum non interrogastis,
sperantes auxilium in fortitudine Pharaonis,
et habentes fiduciam in umbra Ægypti!
3
Et erit vobis fortitudo Pharaonis in confusionem,
et fiducia umbræ Ægypti in ignominiam.
4
Erant enim in Tani principes tui,
et nuntii tui usque ad Hanes pervenerunt.
5
Omnes confusi sunt super populo qui eis prodesse non potuit:
non fuerunt in auxilium et in aliquam utilitatem,
sed in confusionem et in opprobrium.
6 ἡ ὅρασις τῶν τετραπόδων τῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἐν τῇ θλίψει καὶ τῇ στενοχωρίᾳ λέων καὶ σκύμνος λέοντος ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ἀσπίδες καὶ ἔκγονα ἀσπίδων πετομένων οἳ ἔφερον ἐ{P'} ὄνων καὶ καμήλων τὸν πλοῦτον αὐτῶν πρὸς ἔθνος ὃ οὐκ ὠφελήσει αὐτοὺς εἰς βοήθειαν ἀλλὰ εἰς αἰσχύνην καὶ ὄνειδος 7 Αἰγύπτιοι μάταια καὶ κενὰ ὠφελήσουσιν ὑμᾶς ἀπάγγειλον αὐτοῖς ὅτι ματαία ἡ παράκλησις ὑμῶν αὕτη 8 νῦν οὖν καθίσας γράψον ἐπὶ πυξίου ταῦτα καὶ εἰς βιβλίον ὅτι ἔσται εἰς ἡμέρας καιρῶν ταῦτα καὶ ἕως εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 9 ὅτι λαὸς ἀπειθής ἐστιν υἱοὶ ψευδεῖς οἳ οὐκ ἠβούλοντο ἀκούειν τὸν νόμον τοῦ θεοῦ 10 οἱ λέγοντες τοῖς προφήταις μὴ ἀναγγέλλετε ἡμῖν καὶ τοῖς τὰ ὁράματα ὁρῶσιν μὴ λαλεῖτε ἡμῖν ἀλλὰ ἡμῖν λαλεῖτε καὶ ἀναγγέλλετε ἡμῖν ἑτέραν πλάνησιν 11 καὶ ἀποστρέψατε ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ ταύτης ἀφέλετε ἀ{F'} ἡμῶν τὸν τρίβον τοῦτον καὶ ἀφέλετε ἀ{F'} ἡμῶν τὸν ἅγιον τοῦ Ισραηλ 6 What burden for the cattle-droves in the south? Here is a land of difficulty and danger, home of lion and lioness, of viper and flying serpent; and through it, goods piled on asses’ backs, treasures stored on the humps of camels, go men asking for help where help is none. 7 From Egypt’s protection you shall have neither gain nor good; my word has been said about her, There goes Pride, let her alone. 8 Go home, then, and engrave it on a tablet of box-wood for their instruction; write it down, too, carefully on a scroll, to be an abiding record in after days. 9 So rebellious a people is this, so treacherous a breed, refusing, my own children, to listen to the law of their God; 10 forbidding the prophet to prophesy, the man of vision to have vision of the truth. Ever they must be told what likes them best, comforted in their illusions; 11 for them no marching orders, no prescribed path; he, the Holy One of Israel, must be kept far from their view. 6 Onus jumentorum austri.

In terra tribulationis et angustiæ
leæna, et leo ex eis,
vipera et regulus volans;
portantes super humeros jumentorum divitias suas,
et super gibbum camelorum thesauros suos,
ad populum qui eis prodesse non poterit.
7
Ægyptus enim frustra et vane auxiliabitur.
Ideo clamavi super hoc: Superbia tantum est, quiesce.
8
Nunc ergo ingressus, scribe ei super buxum,
et in libro diligenter exara illud,
et erit in die novissimo
in testimonium usque in æternum.
9
Populus enim ad iracundiam provocans est:
et filii mendaces,
filii nolentes
audire legem Dei;
10
qui dicunt videntibus: Nolite videre,
et aspicientibus: Nolite aspicere nobis ea quæ recta sunt;
loquimini nobis placentia:
videte nobis errores.
11
Auferte a me viam;
declinate a me semitam;
cesset a facie nostra
Sanctus Israël.
12 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ισραηλ ὅτι ἠπειθήσατε τοῖς λόγοις τούτοις καὶ ἠλπίσατε ἐπὶ ψεύδει καὶ ὅτι ἐγόγγυσας καὶ πεποιθὼς ἐγένου ἐπὶ τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ 13 διὰ τοῦτο ἔσται ὑμῖν ἡ ἁμαρτία αὕτη ὡς τεῖχος πῖπτον παραχρῆμα πόλεως ὀχυρᾶς ἑαλωκυίας ἧς παραχρῆμα πάρεστιν τὸ πτῶμα 14 καὶ τὸ πτῶμα αὐτῆς ἔσται ὡς σύντριμμα ἀγγείου ὀστρακίνου ἐκ κεραμίου λεπτὰ ὥστε μὴ εὑρεῖν ἐν αὐτοῖς ὄστρακον ἐν ᾧ πῦρ ἀρεῖς καὶ ἐν ᾧ ἀποσυριεῖς ὕδωρ μικρόν 15 οὕτω λέγει κύριος ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ισραηλ ὅταν ἀποστραφεὶς στενάξῃς τότε σωθήσῃ καὶ γνώσῃ ποῦ ἦσθα ὅτε ἐπεποίθεις ἐπὶ τοῖς ματαίοις ματαία ἡ ἰσχὺς ὑμῶν ἐγενήθη καὶ οὐκ ἠβούλεσθε ἀκούειν 16 ἀλ{L'} εἴπατε ἐ{F'} ἵππων φευξόμεθα διὰ τοῦτο φεύξεσθε καὶ εἴπατε ἐπὶ κούφοις ἀναβάται ἐσόμεθα διὰ τοῦτο κοῦφοι ἔσονται οἱ διώκοντες ὑμᾶς 17 διὰ φωνὴν ἑνὸς φεύξονται χίλιοι καὶ διὰ φωνὴν πέντε φεύξονται πολλοί ἕως ἂν καταλειφθῆτε ὡς ἱστὸς ἐ{P'} ὄρους καὶ ὡς σημαίαν φέρων ἐπὶ βουνοῦ 12 From him, the Holy One of Israel, this message: Warning of mine you have rejected, so blindly you trust your own cunning, your own headstrong will. 13 Sudden and swift shall be your punishment, as the crash of a high wall that has long gaped ruinously, long been anxiously watched. 14 So shrewd a blow potter never dealt, shivering earthen pot into fragments, till no shard is left that will carry a lighted coal from the hearth, or a mouthful of water from the cistern. 15 From the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, word was given you, Come back and keep still, and all shall be well with you; in quietness and in confidence lies your strength. But you would have none of it; 16 To horse! you cried, We must flee! and flee you shall; We must ride swiftly, you said; but swifter still ride your pursuers. 17 Be you a thousand to one, yet at the challenge of five men you shall take to flight; nought left of you but a remnant, lonely as flag-staff on the mountain-top, as beacon on the hill. 12
Propterea hæc dicit Sanctus Israël: Pro eo quod reprobastis verbum hoc,
et sperastis in calumnia et in tumultu,
et innixi estis super eo;
13
propterea erit vobis iniquitas hæc
sicut interruptio cadens,
et requisita in muro excelso,
quoniam subito, dum non speratur, veniet contritio ejus.
14
Et comminuetur sicut conteritur lagena figuli
contritione pervalida,
et non invenietur de fragmentis ejus testa
in qua portetur igniculus de incendio,
aut hauriatur parum aquæ de fovea.
15
Quia hæc dicit Dominus Deus, Sanctus Israël:
Si revertamini et quiescatis, salvi eritis;
in silentio et in spe erit fortitudo vestra.
Et noluistis,
16
et dixistis: Nequaquam,
sed ad equos fugiemus:
ideo fugietis;
et: Super veloces ascendemus:
ideo velociores erunt qui persequentur vos.
17
Mille homines a facie terroris unius;
et a facie terroris quinque fugietis,
donec relinquamini
quasi malus navis in vertice montis,
et quasi signum super collem.
18 καὶ πάλιν μενεῖ ὁ θεὸς τοῦ οἰκτιρῆσαι ὑμᾶς καὶ διὰ τοῦτο ὑψωθήσεται τοῦ ἐλεῆσαι ὑμᾶς διότι κριτὴς κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐστιν καὶ ποῦ καταλείψετε τὴν δόξαν ὑμῶν μακάριοι οἱ ἐμμένοντες ἐν αὐτῷ 19 διότι λαὸς ἅγιος ἐν Σιων οἰκήσει καὶ Ιερουσαλημ κλαυθμῷ ἔκλαυσεν ἐλέησόν με ἐλεήσει σε τὴν φωνὴν τῆς κραυγῆς σου ἡνίκα εἶδεν ἐπήκουσέν σου 20 καὶ δώσει κύριος ὑμῖν ἄρτον θλίψεως καὶ ὕδωρ στενόν καὶ οὐκέτι μὴ ἐγγίσωσίν σοι οἱ πλανῶντές σε ὅτι οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ὄψονται τοὺς πλανῶντάς σε 21 καὶ τὰ ὦτά σου ἀκούσονται τοὺς λόγους τῶν ὀπίσω σε πλανησάντων οἱ λέγοντες αὕτη ἡ ὁδός πορευθῶμεν ἐν αὐτῇ εἴτε δεξιὰ εἴτε ἀριστερά 18 What if the Lord waits his time before he will have mercy on you? The more glorious, when it comes, his deliverance. The Lord is a God who makes award justly, blessed they shall be that wait for him. 19 In Jerusalem they only will be left, true citizens of Sion. And thou, Jerusalem, tears shalt have none to shed; mercy is none he shall withhold. Soon as he hears thee crying out to him, the answer will come. 20 Bread the Lord will grant, though it be sparingly, water, though it be in short measure. Birds of passage they shall be no longer,[1] the men he gives thee for thy teachers; always thou wilt have a true counsellor in sight, 21 always hear his voice in thy ear as he warns thee, This is the true path, follow it; no swerving to right or left! 18
Propterea exspectat Dominus ut misereatur vestri;
et ideo exaltabitur parcens vobis,
quia Deus judicii Dominus:
beati omnes qui exspectant eum!
19
Populus enim Sion habitabit in Jerusalem:
plorans nequaquam plorabis:
miserans miserebitur tui, ad vocem clamoris tui:
statim ut audierit, respondebit tibi.
20
Et dabit vobis Dominus
panem arctum, et aquam brevem;
et non faciet avolare a te ultra doctorem tuum;
et erunt oculi tui videntes præceptorem tuum.
21
Et aures tuæ audient verbum post tergum monentis:
Hæc est via; ambulate in ea,
et non declinetis neque ad dexteram, neque ad sinistram.
22 καὶ ἐξαρεῖς τὰ εἴδωλα τὰ περιηργυρωμένα καὶ τὰ περικεχρυσωμένα λεπτὰ ποιήσεις καὶ λικμήσεις ὡς ὕδωρ ἀποκαθημένης καὶ ὡς κόπρον ὤσεις αὐτά 23 τότε ἔσται ὁ ὑετὸς τῷ σπέρματι τῆς γῆς σου καὶ ὁ ἄρτος τοῦ γενήματος τῆς γῆς σου ἔσται πλησμονὴ καὶ λιπαρός καὶ βοσκηθήσεταί σου τὰ κτήνη τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τόπον πίονα καὶ εὐρύχωρον 24 οἱ ταῦροι ὑμῶν καὶ οἱ βόες οἱ ἐργαζόμενοι τὴν γῆν φάγονται ἄχυρα ἀναπεποιημένα ἐν κριθῇ λελικμημένα 25 καὶ ἔσται ἐπὶ παντὸς ὄρους ὑψηλοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ παντὸς βουνοῦ μετεώρου ὕδωρ διαπορευόμενον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὅταν ἀπόλωνται πολλοὶ καὶ ὅταν πέσωσιν πύργοι 26 καὶ ἔσται τὸ φῶς τῆς σελήνης ὡς τὸ φῶς τοῦ ἡλίου καὶ τὸ φῶς τοῦ ἡλίου ἔσται ἑπταπλάσιον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ὅταν ἰάσηται κύριος τὸ σύντριμμα τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν ὀδύνην τῆς πληγῆς σου ἰάσεται 22 Silver leaf on thy graven images defaced now, defaced the sheaths of gold; thou wilt cast all away, as a woman casts away defiled clouts of hers, and bid it begone. 23 And thereupon, sow where thou wilt all over the land, rain shall be granted to thy crops; rich and full shall be thy harvest of wheat; thou shalt have pasture, then, for lambs to browse in at liberty. 24 Ox and ass on thy farm shall have mixed feed, pure grain fresh winnowed on the threshing-floor; 25 never a mountain-top, never a high hill, but will flow with torrents of water, when that day comes. The dead shall lie in heaps that day, and towers come crashing down; 26 moon’s light will be like the light of the sun, and the sun will shine in sevenfold strength, as if the light of seven days were joined in one, when the time comes for the Lord to bind up his people’s hurt, and heal their grievous wound. 22
Et contaminabis laminas sculptilium argenti tui,
et vestimentum conflatilis auri tui,
et disperges ea sicut immunditiam menstruatæ.
Egredere, dices ei.
23
Et dabitur pluvia semini tuo,
ubicumque seminaveris in terra,
et panis frugum terræ
erit uberrimus et pinguis;
pascetur in possessione tua in die illo agnus spatiose,
24
et tauri tui, et pulli asinorum,
qui operantur terram,
commistum migma comedent
sicut in area ventilatum est.
25
Et erunt super omnem montem excelsum,
et super omnem collem elevatum,
rivi currentium aquarum,
in die interfectionis multorum,
cum ceciderint turres:
26
et erit lux lunæ sicut lux solis,
et lux solis erit septempliciter
sicut lux septem dierum,
in die qua alligaverit Dominus vulnus populi sui,
et percussuram plagæ ejus sanaverit.
27 ἰδοὺ τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου διὰ χρόνου ἔρχεται πολλοῦ καιόμενος ὁ θυμός μετὰ δόξης τὸ λόγιον τῶν χειλέων αὐτοῦ τὸ λόγιον ὀργῆς πλῆρες καὶ ἡ ὀργὴ τοῦ θυμοῦ ὡς πῦρ ἔδεται 28 καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ὡς ὕδωρ ἐν φάραγγι σῦρον ἥξει ἕως τοῦ τραχήλου καὶ διαιρεθήσεται τοῦ ἔθνη ταράξαι ἐπὶ πλανήσει ματαίᾳ καὶ διώξεται αὐτοὺς πλάνησις καὶ λήμψεται αὐτοὺς κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν 29 μὴ διὰ παντὸς δεῖ ὑμᾶς εὐφραίνεσθαι καὶ εἰσπορεύεσθαι εἰς τὰ ἅγιά μου διὰ παντὸς ὡσεὶ ἑορτάζοντας καὶ ὡσεὶ εὐφραινομένους εἰσελθεῖν μετὰ αὐλοῦ εἰς τὸ ὄρος τοῦ κυρίου πρὸς τὸν θεὸν τοῦ Ισραηλ 30 καὶ ἀκουστὴν ποιήσει ὁ θεὸς τὴν δόξαν τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν θυμὸν τοῦ βραχίονος αὐτοῦ δείξει μετὰ θυμοῦ καὶ ὀργῆς καὶ φλογὸς κατεσθιούσης κεραυνώσει βιαίως καὶ ὡς ὕδωρ καὶ χάλαζα συγκαταφερομένη βίᾳ 31 διὰ γὰρ φωνὴν κυρίου ἡττηθήσονται Ἀσσύριοι τῇ πληγῇ ᾗ ἂν πατάξῃ αὐτούς 32 καὶ ἔσται αὐτῷ κυκλόθεν ὅθεν ἦν αὐτῷ ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς βοηθείας ἐ{F'} ᾗ αὐτὸς ἐπεποίθει αὐτοὶ μετὰ αὐλῶν καὶ κιθάρας πολεμήσουσιν αὐτὸν ἐκ μεταβολῆς 33 σὺ γὰρ πρὸ ἡμερῶν ἀπαιτηθήσῃ μὴ καὶ σοὶ ἡτοιμάσθη βασιλεύειν φάραγγα βαθεῖαν ξύλα κείμενα πῦρ καὶ ξύλα πολλά ὁ θυμὸς κυρίου ὡς φάραγξ ὑπὸ θείου καιομένη 27 See where the majesty of the Lord comes from far away; his anger is aflame, and there is no withstanding it! There is menace on his lips, his tongue is like a consuming fire, 28 and his breath like a mountain stream that floods over till it is neck-deep. He will sweep away whole nations into oblivion, sweep away the bridle of false fears that curbed the peoples till now.[2] 29 But, you, that night, will be singing for joy, as if it were the night when a solemn feast begins; your hearts will be light, as men’s hearts are light when they go up, with the flutes playing about them, to the mountain of the Lord, where he dwells, the strong God of Israel. 30 The Lord will make his dread voice heard, will lay bare his terrible arm, volleying out his anger in flashes of devouring fire, laying all low with his whirlwind, with his hail-stones; 31 and Assur will shrink in fear from the Lord’s voice, and will feel his rod. 32 So it is decreed that the rod should pass over him, brought down on him by the Lord’s hand to the music of your tambours and harps; a strange warfare this,[3] that shall quell them! 33 In these times a new Topheth[4] has been made ready; this, too, made ready by a king. It is deep and wide, fed with flaming brands in abundance; and the breath of the Lord comes down like a stream of brimstone, to kindle it. 27
Ecce nomen Domini venit de longinquo,
ardens furor ejus, et gravis ad portandum;
labia ejus repleta sunt indignatione,
et lingua ejus quasi ignis devorans.
28
Spiritus ejus velut torrens
inundans usque ad medium colli,
ad perdendas gentes in nihilum,
et frenum erroris quod erat in maxillis populorum.
29
Canticum erit vobis
sicut nox sanctificatæ solemnitatis,
et lætitia cordis
sicut qui pergit cum tibia,
ut intret in montem Domini
ad Fortem Israël.
30
Et auditam faciet Dominus gloriam vocis suæ,
et terrorem brachii sui ostendet
in comminatione furoris, et flamma ignis devorantis:
allidet in turbine, et in lapide grandinis.
31
A voce enim Domini pavebit Assur
virga percussus.
32
Et erit transitus virgæ fundatus,
quam requiescere faciet Dominus super eum
in tympanis et citharis;
et in bellis præcipuis expugnabit eos.
33
Præparata est enim ab heri Topheth,
a rege præparata,
profunda, et dilatata.
Nutrimenta ejus, ignis et ligna multa;
flatus Domini sicut torrens sulphuris succendens eam.
