1 ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ ἐκείνῳ εἶπεν κύριος ἔσομαι εἰς θεὸν τῷ γένει Ισραηλ καὶ αὐτοὶ ἔσονταί μοι εἰς λαόν 2 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος εὗρον θερμὸν ἐν ἐρήμῳ μετὰ ὀλωλότων ἐν μαχαίρᾳ βαδίσατε καὶ μὴ ὀλέσητε τὸν Ισραηλ 3 κύριος πόρρωθεν ὤφθη αὐτῷ ἀγάπησιν αἰωνίαν ἠγάπησά σε διὰ τοῦτο εἵλκυσά σε εἰς οἰκτίρημα 4 ἔτι οἰκοδομήσω σε καὶ οἰκοδομηθήσῃ παρθένος Ισραηλ ἔτι λήμψῃ τύμπανόν σου καὶ ἐξελεύσῃ μετὰ συναγωγῆς παιζόντων 5 ἔτι φυτεύσατε ἀμπελῶνας ἐν ὄρεσιν Σαμαρείας φυτεύσατε καὶ αἰνέσατε 6 ὅτι ἔστιν ἡμέρα κλήσεως ἀπολογουμένων ἐν ὄρεσιν Εφραιμ ἀνάστητε καὶ ἀνάβητε εἰς Σιων πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεὸν ἡμῶν 7 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος τῷ Ιακωβ εὐφράνθητε καὶ χρεμετίσατε ἐπὶ κεφαλὴν ἐθνῶν ἀκουστὰ ποιήσατε καὶ αἰνέσατε εἴπατε ἔσωσεν κύριος τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ Ισραηλ 8 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἄγω αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ συνάξω αὐτοὺς ἀ{P'} ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς ἐν ἑορτῇ φασεκ καὶ τεκνοποιήσῃ ὄχλον πολύν καὶ ἀποστρέψουσιν ὧδε 9 ἐν κλαυθμῷ ἐξῆλθον καὶ ἐν παρακλήσει ἀνάξω αὐτοὺς αὐλίζων ἐπὶ διώρυγας ὑδάτων ἐν ὁδῷ ὀρθῇ καὶ οὐ μὴ πλανηθῶσιν ἐν αὐτῇ ὅτι ἐγενόμην τῷ Ισραηλ εἰς πατέρα καὶ Εφραιμ πρωτότοκός μού ἐστιν 1 No clan in Israel, the Lord says, but shall own me as its God when that day comes, and all of them shall be my people. 2 Out there in the solitudes they have won pardon, those exiles the sword left untouched; Israel shall find a home, the Lord says, 3 the Lord, making himself known from far away.[1] With unchanging love I love thee, and now in mercy I have drawn thee to myself. 4 Israel, poor homeless maid, I will build thy fortunes anew; built anew they shall be, and thou shalt go forth once more, thy tambour hung about thee, among the choir of dancers. 5 Once more thou shalt plant vineyards over the hill-country of Samaria; planted they shall be, and the men who planted them await the appointed time before they gather the vintage.[2] 6 Watchmen there shall be, when that day comes, in the hill-country of Ephraim that will cry aloud, Up, to Sion go we, and there worship the Lord our God! 7 Rejoice, the Lord says, at Jacob’s triumph, the proudest of nations greet with a glad cry;[3] loud echo your songs of praise, Deliverance, Lord, for thy people, for the remnant of Israel! 8 From the north country, from the very ends of earth, I mean to gather them and bring them home; blind men and lame, pregnant women and women brought to bed, so great the muster at their home-coming. 9 Weeping they shall come, and I, moved to pity, will bring them to their journey’s end; from mountain stream to mountain stream I will lead them, by a straight road where there is no stumbling; I, Israel, thy father again, and thou, Ephraim, my first-born son. 1

In tempore illo, dicit Dominus,
ero Deus universis cognationibus Israël,
et ipsi erunt mihi in populum.
2
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Invenit gratiam in deserto populus qui remanserat a gladio:
vadet ad requiem suam Israël.
3
Longe Dominus apparuit mihi.
Et in caritate perpetua dilexi te:
ideo attraxi te, miserans.
4
Rursumque ædificabo te, et ædificaberis, virgo Israël:
adhuc ornaberis tympanis tuis,
et egredieris in choro ludentium.
5
Adhuc plantabis vineas in montibus Samariæ:
plantabunt plantantes,
et donec tempus veniat, non vindemiabunt.
6
Quia erit dies in qua clamabunt custodes in monte Ephraim:
Surgite, et ascendamus in Sion ad Dominum Deum nostrum.
7
Quia hæc dicit Dominus:
Exsultate in lætitia, Jacob,
et hinnite contra caput gentium:
personate, et canite, et dicite:
Salva, Domine, populum tuum, reliquias Israël.
8
Ecce ego adducam eos de terra aquilonis,
et congregabo eos ab extremis terræ:
inter quos erunt cæcus et claudus,
prægnans et pariens simul,
cœtus magnus revertentium huc.
9
In fletu venient,
et in misericordia reducam eos:
et adducam eos per torrentes aquarum in via recta,
et non impingent in ea,
quia factus sum Israëli pater,
et Ephraim primogenitus meus est.
10 ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου ἔθνη καὶ ἀναγγείλατε εἰς νήσους τὰς μακρότερον εἴπατε ὁ λικμήσας τὸν Ισραηλ συνάξει αὐτὸν καὶ φυλάξει αὐτὸν ὡς ὁ βόσκων τὸ ποίμνιον αὐτοῦ 11 ὅτι ἐλυτρώσατο κύριος τὸν Ιακωβ ἐξείλατο αὐτὸν ἐκ χειρὸς στερεωτέρων αὐτοῦ 12 καὶ ἥξουσιν καὶ εὐφρανθήσονται ἐν τῷ ὄρει Σιων καὶ ἥξουσιν ἐ{P'} ἀγαθὰ κυρίου ἐπὶ γῆν σίτου καὶ οἴνου καὶ καρπῶν καὶ κτηνῶν καὶ προβάτων καὶ ἔσται ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῶν ὥσπερ ξύλον ἔγκαρπον καὶ οὐ πεινάσουσιν ἔτι 13 τότε χαρήσονται παρθένοι ἐν συναγωγῇ νεανίσκων καὶ πρεσβῦται χαρήσονται καὶ στρέψω τὸ πένθος αὐτῶν εἰς χαρμονὴν καὶ ποιήσω αὐτοὺς εὐφραινομένους 14 μεγαλυνῶ καὶ μεθύσω τὴν ψυχὴν τῶν ἱερέων υἱῶν Λευι καὶ ὁ λαός μου τῶν ἀγαθῶν μου ἐμπλησθήσεται 10 Listen, Gentiles, to the Lord’s promise; his word must go out to the islands that are far away; word that he who scattered Israel will gather Israel in, will guard it faithfully as a shepherd guards his flock. 11 The Lord means to ransom Jacob, to grant deliverance from the tyrant’s power. 12 The exiles will return, greeting mount Sion with cries of gladness; thronging in to take possession of the Lord’s gifts, corn and oil and wine, increase of flock and herd. Revived their spirits shall be, like a garden when the stream flows full; they shall hunger no more. 13 Glad the maidens shall dance, gladness there shall be for young and old alike; I will turn all their sorrow into joy, comfort and cheer their sad hearts. 14 Full-fed my priests shall be with dainties; blessings my people shall have, the Lord says, till they ask no more. 10
Audite verbum Domini, gentes,
et annuntiate in insulis quæ procul sunt,
et dicite: Qui dispersit Israël congregabit eum,
et custodiet eum sicut pastor gregem suum.
11
Redemit enim Dominus Jacob,
et liberavit eum de manu potentioris.
12
Et venient, et laudabunt in monte Sion:
et confluent ad bona Domini,
super frumento, et vino, et oleo,
et fœtu pecorum et armentorum:
eritque anima eorum quasi hortus irriguus,
et ultra non esurient.
13
Tunc lætabitur virgo in choro,
juvenes et senes simul:
et convertam luctum eorum in gaudium,
et consolabor eos, et lætificabo a dolore suo.
14
Et inebriabo animam sacerdotum pinguedine,
et populus meus bonis meis adimplebitur, ait Dominus.
15 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος φωνὴ ἐν Ραμα ἠκούσθη θρήνου καὶ κλαυθμοῦ καὶ ὀδυρμοῦ Ραχηλ ἀποκλαιομένη οὐκ ἤθελεν παύσασθαι ἐπὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτῆς ὅτι οὐκ εἰσίν 16 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος διαλιπέτω ἡ φωνή σου ἀπὸ κλαυθμοῦ καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ἀπὸ δακρύων σου ὅτι ἔστιν μισθὸς τοῖς σοῖς ἔργοις καὶ ἐπιστρέψουσιν ἐκ γῆς ἐχθρῶν 17 μόνιμον τοῖς σοῖς τέκνοις 18 ἀκοὴν ἤκουσα Εφραιμ ὀδυρομένου ἐπαίδευσάς με καὶ ἐπαιδεύθην ἐγώ ὥσπερ μόσχος οὐκ ἐδιδάχθην ἐπίστρεψόν με καὶ ἐπιστρέψω ὅτι σὺ κύριος ὁ θεός μου 19 ὅτι ὕστερον αἰχμαλωσίας μου μετενόησα καὶ ὕστερον τοῦ γνῶναί με ἐστέναξα ἐ{F'} ἡμέρας αἰσχύνης καὶ ὑπέδειξά σοι ὅτι ἔλαβον ὀνειδισμὸν ἐκ νεότητός μου 20 υἱὸς ἀγαπητὸς Εφραιμ ἐμοί παιδίον ἐντρυφῶν ὅτι ἀν{Q'} ὧν οἱ λόγοι μου ἐν αὐτῷ μνείᾳ μνησθήσομαι αὐτοῦ διὰ τοῦτο ἔσπευσα ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ ἐλεῶν ἐλεήσω αὐτόν φησὶν κύριος 15 Now, the Lord says, a voice is heard in Rama, of lamentation and bitter mourning; it is Rachel weeping for her children, and she will not be comforted, because none is left.[4] 16 But thus he reassures thee: Sad voice, lament, sad eyes, weep no more; I, the Lord, give thee promise of a reward for thy working-days, a return from the enemy’s country. 17 A hope is left for thee hereafter, the Lord says; to their own possessions thy sons shall return. 18 Doubt not I heard it, the cry of Ephraim forlorn: Lord, it was thy task to chasten me, that must learn, like bullock untamed, to bear the yoke; grant me return, and I will return to thee;[5] thou art the Lord my God. 19 Only when thou calledst me back to thyself did I repent; only when my lesson was learnt did I cry out upon my shame.[6] How did I blush with confusion, bearing the disgrace the sins of my youth had earned! 20 Why, what a favourite son is this Ephraim, what a spoilt child of mine, that I should pronounce my doom on him, and care for him none the less! In truth, my heart goes out to him; I will be merciful to him yet, the Lord says. 15
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Vox in excelso audita est lamentationis:
luctus, et fletus Rachel plorantis filios suos,
et nolentis consolari super eis,
quia non sunt.
16
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Quiescat vox tua a ploratu,
et oculi tui a lacrimis,
quia est merces operi tuo, ait Dominus,
et revertentur de terra inimici:
17
et est spes novissimis tuis, ait Dominus,
et revertentur filii ad terminos suos.
18
Audiens audivi Ephraim transmigrantem:
Castigasti me, et eruditus sum,
quasi juvenculus indomitus:
converte me, et convertar,
quia tu Dominus Deus meus.
19
Postquam enim convertisti me, egi pœnitentiam:
et postquam ostendisti mihi, percussi femur meum.
Confusus sum, et erubui,
quoniam sustinui opprobrium adolescentiæ meæ.
20
Si filius honorabilis mihi Ephraim,
si puer delicatus!
quia ex quo locutus sum de eo,
adhuc recordabor ejus.
Idcirco conturbata sunt viscera mea super eum:
miserans miserebor ejus, ait Dominus.
21 στῆσον σεαυτήν Σιων ποίησον τιμωρίαν δὸς καρδίαν σου εἰς τοὺς ὤμους ὁδὸν ἣν ἐπορεύθης ἀποστράφητι παρθένος Ισραηλ ἀποστράφητι εἰς τὰς πόλεις σου πενθοῦσα 22 ἕως πότε ἀποστρέψεις θυγάτηρ ἠτιμωμένη ὅτι ἔκτισεν κύριος σωτηρίαν εἰς καταφύτευσιν καινήν ἐν σωτηρίᾳ περιελεύσονται ἄνθρωποι 21 Way-marks leave behind thee, sad trophies[7] be raising as thou goest, to put thee in mind of the straight road thou hast trodden. Return thou must, poor Israel, return thou must to these, thy own cities; 22 fickle maid, dally no longer. Here is a new order of things the Lord has established on earth; weak woman is to be the protectress of man’s strength.[8] 21
Statue tibi speculam;
pone tibi amaritudines;
dirige cor tuum in viam rectam in qua ambulasti:
revertere, virgo Israël,
revertere ad civitates tuas istas.
22
Usquequo deliciis dissolveris, filia vaga?
quia creavit Dominus novum super terram:
femina circumdabit virum.
23 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἔτι ἐροῦσιν τὸν λόγον τοῦτον ἐν γῇ Ιουδα καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν αὐτοῦ ὅταν ἀποστρέψω τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν αὐτοῦ εὐλογημένος κύριος ἐπὶ δίκαιον ὄρος τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ 24 καὶ ἐνοικοῦντες ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ αὐτοῦ ἅμα γεωργῷ καὶ ἀρθήσεται ἐν ποιμνίῳ 25 ὅτι ἐμέθυσα πᾶσαν ψυχὴν διψῶσαν καὶ πᾶσαν ψυχὴν πεινῶσαν ἐνέπλησα 23 A message from the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: To town and country-side of Juda I will restore the exiled folk, and once again the greeting will be heard, A blessing on thee from the Lord, fair home of true observance, holy mountain-side! 24 Once again Juda and Juda’s townsfolk shall dwell there; fields shall be tilled and flocks led out to pasture; 25 faint hearts shall be refreshed, and hunger’s craving satisfied. 23
Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Adhuc dicent verbum istud
in terra Juda et in urbibus ejus,
cum convertero captivitatem eorum:
Benedicat tibi Dominus, pulchritudo justitiæ, mons sanctus:
24
et habitabunt in eo Judas et omnes civitates ejus simul,
agricolæ et minantes greges.
25
Quia inebriavi animam lassam,
et omnem animam esurientem saturavi.
26 διὰ τοῦτο ἐξηγέρθην καὶ εἶδον καὶ ὁ ὕπνος μου ἡδύς μοι ἐγενήθη 26 Ah, to wake upon such a sight! Then were sleep welcome.[9] 26
Ideo quasi de somno suscitatus sum:
et vidi, et somnus meus dulcis mihi.
27 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται φησὶν κύριος καὶ σπερῶ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ τὸν Ιουδαν σπέρμα ἀνθρώπου καὶ σπέρμα κτήνους 28 καὶ ἔσται ὥσπερ ἐγρηγόρουν ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς καθαιρεῖν καὶ κακοῦν οὕτως γρηγορήσω ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς τοῦ οἰκοδομεῖν καὶ καταφυτεύειν φησὶν κύριος 29 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις οὐ μὴ εἴπωσιν οἱ πατέρες ἔφαγον ὄμφακα καὶ οἱ ὀδόντες τῶν τέκνων ᾑμωδίασαν 30 ἀλ{L'} ἢ ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ ἑαυτοῦ ἁμαρτίᾳ ἀποθανεῖται καὶ τοῦ φαγόντος τὸν ὄμφακα αἱμωδιάσουσιν οἱ ὀδόντες αὐτοῦ 27 A time is coming, the Lord says, when I mean to enrich Israel’s home, Juda’s home, with stock of men and of cattle both; 28 jealous watch I will still keep over them, but not, as of old, to root up and to demolish, to scatter and lay waste and to do hurt; all shall be building, the Lord says, all shall be planting now. 29 When that time comes, no more shall be heard of the proverb, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are being set on edge; 30 tooth of eater shall ache now, and a man’s own guilt shall be a man’s own doom.[10] 27
Ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus,
et seminabo domum Israël et domum Juda
semine hominum et semine jumentorum.
28
Et sicut vigilavi super eos
ut evellerem, et demolirer, et dissiparem,
et disperderem, et affligerem,
sic vigilabo super eos
ut ædificem et plantem, ait Dominus.
29
In diebus illis non dicent ultra:
Patres comederunt uvam acerbam,
et dentes filiorum obstupuerunt.
30
Sed unusquisque in iniquitate sua morietur:
omnis homo qui comederit uvam acerbam,
obstupescent dentes ejus.
31 ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται φησὶν κύριος καὶ διαθήσομαι τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ Ιουδα διαθήκην καινήν 32 οὐ κατὰ τὴν διαθήκην ἣν διεθέμην τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἐπιλαβομένου μου τῆς χειρὸς αὐτῶν ἐξαγαγεῖν αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ὅτι αὐτοὶ οὐκ ἐνέμειναν ἐν τῇ διαθήκῃ μου καὶ ἐγὼ ἠμέλησα αὐτῶν φησὶν κύριος 33 ὅτι αὕτη ἡ διαθήκη ἣν διαθήσομαι τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ μετὰ τὰς ἡμέρας ἐκείνας φησὶν κύριος διδοὺς δώσω νόμους μου εἰς τὴν διάνοιαν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ καρδίας αὐτῶν γράψω αὐτούς καὶ ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς εἰς θεόν καὶ αὐτοὶ ἔσονταί μοι εἰς λαόν 34 καὶ οὐ μὴ διδάξωσιν ἕκαστος τὸν πολίτην αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστος τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ λέγων γνῶθι τὸν κύριον ὅτι πάντες εἰδήσουσίν με ἀπὸ μικροῦ αὐτῶν καὶ ἕως μεγάλου αὐτῶν ὅτι ἵλεως ἔσομαι ταῖς ἀδικίαις αὐτῶν καὶ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν οὐ μὴ μνησθῶ ἔτι 35 ἐὰν ὑψωθῇ ὁ οὐρανὸς εἰς τὸ μετέωρον φησὶν κύριος καὶ ἐὰν ταπεινωθῇ τὸ ἔδαφος τῆς γῆς κάτω καὶ ἐγὼ οὐκ ἀποδοκιμῶ τὸ γένος Ισραηλ φησὶν κύριος περὶ πάντων ὧν ἐποίησαν 36 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ δοὺς τὸν ἥλιον εἰς φῶς τῆς ἡμέρας σελήνην καὶ ἀστέρας εἰς φῶς τῆς νυκτός καὶ κραυγὴν ἐν θαλάσσῃ καὶ ἐβόμβησεν τὰ κύματα αὐτῆς κύριος παντοκράτωρ ὄνομα αὐτῷ 37 ἐὰν παύσωνται οἱ νόμοι οὗτοι ἀπὸ προσώπου μου φησὶν κύριος καὶ τὸ γένος Ισραηλ παύσεται γενέσθαι ἔθνος κατὰ πρόσωπόν μου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας 31 A time is coming, the Lord says, when I mean to ratify a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Juda. 32 It will not be like the covenant which I made with their fathers, on the day when I took them by the hand, to rescue them from Egypt; that they should break my covenant, and I, all the while, their master, the Lord says. 33 No, this is the covenant I will grant the people of Israel, the Lord says, when that time comes. I will implant my law in their innermost thoughts, engrave it in their hearts; I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 There will be no need for neighbour to teach neighbour, or brother to teach brother, the knowledge of the Lord; all will know me, from the highest to the lowest. I will pardon their wrong-doing; I will not remember their sins any more.[11] 35 A message from the Lord, from him, the God of hosts, the same who brightens day with the sun’s rays, night with the ordered service of moon and star, who can stir up the sea and set its waves a-roaring; 36 All these laws of mine will fail me, he says, before the line of Israel fails me; a people it must remain until the end of time. 37 You have the Lord’s word for it; When you can measure heaven above, he tells you, and search the foundations of earth below, then I will cast away the whole line of Israel, for all its ill deserving. 31
Ecce dies venient, dicit Dominus,
et feriam domui Israël et domui Juda fœdus novum,
32
non secundum pactum quod pepigi cum patribus eorum
in die qua apprehendi manum eorum
ut educerem eos de terra Ægypti,
pactum quod irritum fecerunt:
et ego dominatus sum eorum, dicit Dominus.
33
Sed hoc erit pactum quod feriam cum domo Israël
post dies illos, dicit Dominus:
dabo legem meam in visceribus eorum,
et in corde eorum scribam eam,
et ero eis in Deum,
et ipsi erunt mihi in populum:
34
et non docebit ultra vir proximum suum
et vir fratrem suum,
dicens: Cognosce Dominum:
omnes enim cognoscent me,
a minimo eorum usque ad maximum, ait Dominus:
quia propitiabor iniquitati eorum,
et peccati eorum non memorabor amplius.
35
Hæc dicit Dominus qui dat solem in lumine diei,
ordinem lunæ et stellarum in lumine noctis:
qui turbat mare, et sonant fluctus ejus:
Dominus exercituum nomen illi:
36
Si defecerint leges istæ coram me, dicit Dominus,
tunc et semen Israël deficiet,
ut non sit gens coram me cunctis diebus.
37
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Si mensurari potuerint cæli sursum,
et investigari fundamenta terræ deorsum,
et ego abjiciam universum semen Israël,
propter omnia quæ fecerunt, dicit Dominus.
38 ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται φησὶν κύριος καὶ οἰκοδομηθήσεται πόλις τῷ κυρίῳ ἀπὸ πύργου Αναμεηλ ἕως πύλης τῆς γωνίας 39 καὶ ἐξελεύσεται ἡ διαμέτρησις αὐτῆς ἀπέναντι αὐτῶν ἕως βουνῶν Γαρηβ καὶ περικυκλωθήσεται κύκλῳ ἐξ ἐκλεκτῶν λίθων 40 καὶ πάντες ασαρημωθ ἕως ναχαλ Κεδρων ἕως γωνίας πύλης ἵππων ἀνατολῆς ἁγίασμα τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ οὐκέτι οὐ μὴ ἐκλίπῃ καὶ οὐ μὴ καθαιρεθῇ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος 38 Behold, says the divine promise, a time is coming when the city shall be rebuilt in the Lord’s honour, from Hananeel’s Tower as far as the Corner Gate; 39 nay, in advance of that the limit of its range shall reach, across Gareb hill, to take in Goatha, 40 burial-ground and ash-pit and all the dead soil as far as Cedron brook, and eastward as far as the corner by the Horsemen’s Gate; all shall be consecrated to the Lord; tree shall not be uprooted there henceforward, nor house overthrown. 38
Ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus,
et ædificabitur civitas Domino,
a turre Hananeel usque ad portam anguli.
39
Et exibit ultra norma mensuræ
in conspectu ejus super collem Gareb,
et circuibit Goatha,
40
et omnem vallem cadaverum, et cineris,
et universam regionem mortis
usque ad torrentem Cedron,
et usque ad angulum portæ equorum orientalis,
Sanctum Domini:
non evelletur, et non destruetur ultra in perpetuum.
