1 ὑπολαβὼν δὲ Βαλδαδ ὁ Σαυχίτης λέγει 2 μέχρι τίνος λαλήσεις ταῦτα πνεῦμα πολυρῆμον τοῦ στόματός σου 3 μὴ ὁ κύριος ἀδικήσει κρίνων ἢ ὁ τὰ πάντα ποιήσας ταράξει τὸ δίκαιον 4 εἰ οἱ υἱοί σου ἥμαρτον ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ἀπέστειλεν ἐν χειρὶ ἀνομίας αὐτῶν 5 σὺ δὲ ὄρθριζε πρὸς κύριον παντοκράτορα δεόμενος 6 εἰ καθαρὸς εἶ καὶ ἀληθινός δεήσεως ἐπακούσεταί σου ἀποκαταστήσει δέ σοι δίαιταν δικαιοσύνης 7 ἔσται οὖν τὰ μὲν πρῶτά σου ὀλίγα τὰ δὲ ἔσχατά σου ἀμύθητα 1 Then answered Baldad the Suhite: 2 What, still at thy old complaining; blustering still, like a high wind, on and on? 3 Can sentence undeserved come from God, unjust award from the Almighty? 4 What if these children of thine committed some fault, and he allowed justice to take its course? 5 For thyself, thou hast but to keep early tryst with God, make thy plea to his omnipotence. 6 Then, if thou comest before him innocent and upright, he will give thee audience betimes; he will establish thee in thy possessions again, as one that enjoys his favour. 7 A poor thing thy old prosperity will seem, matched with the abundance he gives thee now. 1 Respondens autem Baldad Suhites, dixit: 2

Usquequo loqueris talia,
et spiritus multiplex sermones oris tui?
3
Numquid Deus supplantat judicium?
aut Omnipotens subvertit quod justum est?
4
Etiam si filii tui peccaverunt ei,
et dimisit eos in manu iniquitatis suæ:
5
tu tamen si diluculo consurrexeris ad Deum,
et Omnipotentem fueris deprecatus;
6
si mundus et rectus incesseris:
statim evigilabit ad te,
et pacatum reddet habitaculum justitiæ tuæ,
7
in tantum ut si priora tua fuerint parva,
et novissima tua multiplicentur nimis.
8 ἐπερώτησον γὰρ γενεὰν πρώτην ἐξιχνίασον δὲ κατὰ γένος πατέρων 9 χθιζοὶ γάρ ἐσμεν καὶ οὐκ οἴδαμεν σκιὰ γάρ ἐστιν ἡμῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὁ βίος 10 ἦ οὐχ οὗτοί σε διδάξουσιν καὶ ἀναγγελοῦσιν καὶ ἐκ καρδίας ἐξάξουσιν ῥήματα 11 μὴ θάλλει πάπυρος ἄνευ ὕδατος ἢ ὑψωθήσεται βούτομον ἄνευ πότου 12 ἔτι ὂν ἐπὶ ῥίζης καὶ οὐ μὴ θερισθῇ πρὸ τοῦ πιεῖν πᾶσα βοτάνη οὐχὶ ξηραίνεται 13 οὕτως τοίνυν ἔσται τὰ ἔσχατα πάντων τῶν ἐπιλανθανομένων τοῦ κυρίου ἐλπὶς γὰρ ἀσεβοῦς ἀπολεῖται 14 ἀοίκητος γὰρ αὐτοῦ ἔσται ὁ οἶκος ἀράχνη δὲ αὐτοῦ ἀποβήσεται ἡ σκηνή 15 ἐὰν ὑπερείσῃ τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ στῇ ἐπιλαβομένου δὲ αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ ὑπομείνῃ 16 ὑγρὸς γάρ ἐστιν ὑπὸ ἡλίου καὶ ἐκ σαπρίας αὐτοῦ ὁ ῥάδαμνος αὐτοῦ ἐξελεύσεται 17 ἐπὶ συναγωγὴν λίθων κοιμᾶται ἐν δὲ μέσῳ χαλίκων ζήσεται 18 ἐὰν καταπίῃ ὁ τόπος ψεύσεται αὐτόν οὐχ ἑόρακας τοιαῦτα 19 ὅτι καταστροφὴ ἀσεβοῦς τοιαύτη ἐκ δὲ γῆς ἄλλον ἀναβλαστήσει 8 Ask counsel of the ages that are long past; let the experience of former men overrule thee. 9 How blind are we, creatures of a day, whose time on earth passes like a shadow! 10 Those fathers of ours will be thy best teachers, and this is the advice their wisdom offers thee: 11 Never yet grew bulrush without moisture, nor reed-bed that lacked water; 12 fade it must, no leaf so soon, in its first flower, before men have time to gather it. 13 So frail their happiness, who leave God unremembered; so fade the hopes of false hearts. 14 Little shall their recklessness avail them; in threads of gossamer they put their trust. 15 Vain his reliance on the house he has built, vainly he seeks to underpin it. 16 Here is a plant that seems well-watered enough, spreads abroad its early shoots, but only till the sun rises; 17 wrapped about stones are the roots of it, and stones all its dwelling-place; 18 yonder sun must needs drain its life, and the garden will keep no memory of its passage. 19 So brief its pride; they are waiting even now underground, the shoots that will fill its place. 8
Interroga enim generationem pristinam,
et diligenter investiga patrum memoriam
9
(hesterni quippe sumus, et ignoramus,
quoniam sicut umbra dies nostri sunt super terram),
10
et ipsi docebunt te, loquentur tibi,
et de corde suo proferent eloquia.
11
Numquid vivere potest scirpus absque humore?
aut crescere carectum sine aqua?
12
Cum adhuc sit in flore, nec carpatur manu,
ante omnes herbas arescit.
13
Sic viæ omnium qui obliviscuntur Deum,
et spes hypocritæ peribit.
14
Non ei placebit vecordia sua,
et sicut tela aranearum fiducia ejus.
15
Innitetur super domum suam, et non stabit;
fulciet eam, et non consurget.
16
Humectus videtur antequam veniat sol,
et in ortu suo germen ejus egredietur.
17
Super acervum petrarum radices ejus densabuntur,
et inter lapides commorabitur.
18
Si absorbuerit eum de loco suo,
negabit eum, et dicet: Non novi te.
19
Hæc est enim lætitia viæ ejus,
ut rursum de terra alii germinentur.
20 ὁ γὰρ κύριος οὐ μὴ ἀποποιήσηται τὸν ἄκακον πᾶν δὲ δῶρον ἀσεβοῦς οὐ δέξεται 21 ἀληθινῶν δὲ στόμα ἐμπλήσει γέλωτος τὰ δὲ χείλη αὐτῶν ἐξομολογήσεως 22 οἱ δὲ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῶν ἐνδύσονται αἰσχύνην δίαιτα δὲ ἀσεβοῦς οὐκ ἔσται 20 Trust me, God will not cast off the innocent, will not lend his aid to the malice of their enemies. 21 Ere long, he will teach those lips to smile, that mouth to sing praise; 22 brief shall be the triumph of thy foes, brief the security of the wrong-doer. 20
Deus non projiciet simplicem,
nec porriget manum malignis,
21
donec impleatur risu os tuum,
et labia tua jubilo.
22
Qui oderunt te induentur confusione,
et tabernaculum impiorum non subsistet.
