1 κατάβηθι κάθισον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν παρθένος θυγάτηρ Βαβυλῶνος εἴσελθε εἰς τὸ σκότος θυγάτηρ Χαλδαίων ὅτι οὐκέτι προστεθήσῃ κληθῆναι ἁπαλὴ καὶ τρυφερά 2 λαβὲ μύλον ἄλεσον ἄλευρον ἀποκάλυψαι τὸ κατακάλυμμά σου ἀνακάλυψαι τὰς πολιάς ἀνάσυραι τὰς κνήμας διάβηθι ποταμούς 3 ἀνακαλυφθήσεται ἡ αἰσχύνη σου φανήσονται οἱ ὀνειδισμοί σου τὸ δίκαιον ἐκ σοῦ λήμψομαι οὐκέτι μὴ παραδῶ ἀνθρώποις 1 Come down, sit in the dust, poor maid of Babylon; the ground thy seat shall be; no throne any longer for that queen of the Chaldean folk we knew once, so dainty, so delicate. 2 Get thee to the millstones and grind there, ready to expose thy nakedness; off with thy veil, here are streams to be crossed bare of leg. 3 Thou shalt be exposed to shame, thy naked form uncovered; I mean to take vengeance on thee, and no man shall stay my hand. 1

Descende, sede in pulvere,
virgo filia Babylon:
sede in terra; non est solium
filiæ Chaldæorum,
quia ultra non vocaberis
mollis et tenera.
2
Tolle molam, et mole farinam;
denuda turpitudinem tuam;
discooperi humerum, revela crura,
transi flumina.
3
Revelabitur ignominia tua,
et videbitur opprobrium tuum;
ultionem capiam, et non resistet mihi homo.
4 εἶπεν ὁ ῥυσάμενός σε κύριος σαβαωθ ὄνομα αὐτῷ ἅγιος Ισραηλ 4 (But we have one to ransom us; who but the Lord of hosts, the Holy One of Israel?[1]) 4
Redemptor noster, Dominus exercituum nomen illius,
Sanctus Israël.
5 κάθισον κατανενυγμένη εἴσελθε εἰς τὸ σκότος θυγάτηρ Χαλδαίων οὐκέτι μὴ κληθῇς ἰσχὺς βασιλείας 6 παρωξύνθην ἐπὶ τῷ λαῷ μου ἐμίανας τὴν κληρονομίαν μου ἐγὼ ἔδωκα εἰς τὴν χεῖρά σου σὺ δὲ οὐκ ἔδωκας αὐτοῖς ἔλεος τοῦ πρεσβυτέρου ἐβάρυνας τὸν ζυγὸν σφόδρα 7 καὶ εἶπας εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἔσομαι ἄρχουσα οὐκ ἐνόησας ταῦτα ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου οὐδὲ ἐμνήσθης τὰ ἔσχατα 8 νῦν δὲ ἄκουσον ταῦτα ἡ τρυφερὰ ἡ καθημένη πεποιθυῖα ἡ λέγουσα ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῆς ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἑτέρα οὐ καθιῶ χήρα οὐδὲ γνώσομαι ὀρφανείαν 9 νῦν δὲ ἥξει ἐξαίφνης ἐπὶ σὲ τὰ δύο ταῦτα ἐν μιᾷ ἡμέρᾳ χηρεία καὶ ἀτεκνία ἥξει ἐξαίφνης ἐπὶ σὲ ἐν τῇ φαρμακείᾳ σου ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι τῶν ἐπαοιδῶν σου σφόδρα 5 Sit dumb, bury thyself in darkness, lady of Chaldea; thou shalt rule the nations no longer. 6 Angry with my people, turned enemy against the land of my choice, I gave them into thy power; and thou, what mercy didst thou shew them? Heavy the yoke thou didst lay on aged shoulders. 7 Thou wouldst surely be a queen for ever; thou didst it light-heartedly, not recking what the end should be. 8 And now, here is a word for those delicate ears, lady of the careless heart, who sittest there telling thyself, I am Babylon, the unrivalled; no lonely widowhood, no childless lot for me. 9 These two things shall fall on thee suddenly in a single day, childlessness and widowhood; fall upon thee in full measure, so blind amid all thy sorceries, through the crass folly of thy wizards so blind. 5
Sede tacens, et intra in tenebras,
filia Chaldæorum,
quia non vocaberis ultra
domina regnorum.
6
Iratus sum super populum meum:
contaminavi hæreditatem meam,
et dedi eos in manu tua:
non posuisti eis misericordias;
super senem aggravasti jugum tuum valde.
7
Et dixisti: In sempiternum ero domina.
Non posuisti hæc super cor tuum,
neque recordata es novissimi tui.
8
Et nunc audi hæc delicata,
et habitans confidenter,
quæ dicis in corde tuo:
Ego sum, et non est præter me amplius;
non sedebo vidua,
et ignorabo sterilitatem.
9
Venient tibi duo hæc
subito in die una,
sterilitas et viduitas:
universa venerunt super te,
propter multitudinem maleficiorum tuorum,
et propter duritiam incantatorum tuorum vehementem.
10 τῇ ἐλπίδι τῆς πονηρίας σου σὺ γὰρ εἶπας ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἑτέρα γνῶθι ὅτι ἡ σύνεσις τούτων καὶ ἡ πορνεία σου ἔσται σοι αἰσχύνη καὶ εἶπας τῇ καρδίᾳ σου ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἑτέρα 11 καὶ ἥξει ἐπὶ σὲ ἀπώλεια καὶ οὐ μὴ γνῷς βόθυνος καὶ ἐμπεσῇ εἰς αὐτόν καὶ ἥξει ἐπὶ σὲ ταλαιπωρία καὶ οὐ μὴ δυνήσῃ καθαρὰ γενέσθαι καὶ ἥξει ἐπὶ σὲ ἐξαπίνης ἀπώλεια καὶ οὐ μὴ γνῷς 12 στῆθι νῦν ἐν ταῖς ἐπαοιδαῖς σου καὶ τῇ πολλῇ φαρμακείᾳ σου ἃ ἐμάνθανες ἐκ νεότητός σου εἰ δυνήσῃ ὠφεληθῆναι 13 κεκοπίακας ἐν ταῖς βουλαῖς σου στήτωσαν καὶ σωσάτωσάν σε οἱ ἀστρολόγοι τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οἱ ὁρῶντες τοὺς ἀστέρας ἀναγγειλάτωσάν σοι τί μέλλει ἐπὶ σὲ ἔρχεσθαι 14 ἰδοὺ πάντες ὡς φρύγανα ἐπὶ πυρὶ κατακαήσονται καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐξέλωνται τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτῶν ἐκ φλογός ὅτι ἔχεις ἄνθρακας πυρός κάθισαι ἐ{P'} αὐτούς 15 οὗτοι ἔσονταί σοι βοήθεια ἐκοπίασας ἐν τῇ μεταβολῇ σου ἐκ νεότητος ἄνθρωπος κα{Q'} ἑαυτὸν ἐπλανήθη σοὶ δὲ οὐκ ἔσται σωτηρία 10 Such was thy trust in these wicked arts of thine, thou hadst no fear of discovery; thy very wisdom, thy very knowledge were a snare; I am Babylon, thy heart told thee, rival I have none. 11 And now comes ruin unforeseen, comes doom no sacrifice can avert; sudden and strange thy encounter with sorrow. 12 All that multitude of wizards, and wilt thou not persevere with thy enchantments, the hard-earned lore of thy youth? Maybe it will turn to thy advantage; thou shalt be formidable yet! 13 But no, thou art wearied of those many consultations. Let them come to thy side now and save thee if they can, diviners that gaze up at the stars, count days of the month, to tell thy future for thee! 14 Like stubble burn they one and all; their own lives they cannot rescue from the flame. Here is no brazier to warm them, no ingle-nook to sit by! 15 And this is the end of all thy long study; trusted counsellors of thy youth, all have gone astray in their reckoning; deliverance for thee is none. 10
Et fiduciam habuisti in malitia tua,
et dixisti: Non est qui videat me.
Sapientia tua et scientia tua,
hæc decepit te.
Et dixisti in corde tuo:
Ego sum, et præter me non est altera.
11
Veniet super te malum,
et nescies ortum ejus;
et irruet super te calamitas
quam non poteris expiare;
veniet super te repente miseria
quam nescies.
12
Sta cum incantatoribus tuis
et cum multitudine maleficiorum tuorum,
in quibus laborasti ab adolescentia tua,
si forte quod prosit tibi,
aut si possis fieri fortior.
13
Defecisti in multitudine consiliorum tuorum.
Stent, et salvent te
augures cæli,
qui contemplabantur sidera,
et supputabant menses,
ut ex eis annuntiarent ventura tibi.
14
Ecce facti sunt quasi stipula,
ignis combussit eos;
non liberabunt animam suam
de manu flammæ;
non sunt prunæ quibus calefiant,
nec focus ut sedeant ad eum.
15
Sic facta sunt tibi in quibuscumque laboraveras:
negotiatores tui ab adolescentia tua,
unusquisque in via sua erraverunt;
non est qui salvet te.
