1 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῷ χριστῷ μου Κύρῳ οὗ ἐκράτησα τῆς δεξιᾶς ἐπακοῦσαι ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ ἔθνη καὶ ἰσχὺν βασιλέων διαρρήξω ἀνοίξω ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ θύρας καὶ πόλεις οὐ συγκλεισθήσονται 2 ἐγὼ ἔμπροσθέν σου πορεύσομαι καὶ ὄρη ὁμαλιῶ θύρας χαλκᾶς συντρίψω καὶ μοχλοὺς σιδηροῦς συγκλάσω 3 καὶ δώσω σοι θησαυροὺς σκοτεινούς ἀποκρύφους ἀοράτους ἀνοίξω σοι ἵνα γνῷς ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ καλῶν τὸ ὄνομά σου θεὸς Ισραηλ 4 ἕνεκεν Ιακωβ τοῦ παιδός μου καὶ Ισραηλ τοῦ ἐκλεκτοῦ μου ἐγὼ καλέσω σε τῷ ὀνόματί σου καὶ προσδέξομαί σε σὺ δὲ οὐκ ἔγνως με 5 ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν ἐμοῦ θεός καὶ οὐκ ᾔδεις με 6 ἵνα γνῶσιν οἱ ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν ἡλίου καὶ οἱ ἀπὸ δυσμῶν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν πλὴν ἐμοῦ ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι 7 ἐγὼ ὁ κατασκευάσας φῶς καὶ ποιήσας σκότος ὁ ποιῶν εἰρήνην καὶ κτίζων κακά ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ ποιῶν ταῦτα πάντα 1 A message from the Lord to the king he has anointed, to Cyrus. I have caught him by his right hand, ready to subdue nations at his coming, put kings to flight, open every gateway before him, so that no door can keep him out. 2 And now (says the Lord) I will still lead thee on thy way, bending the pride of earth low before thee; I will break open gates of bronze, and cleave through bars of iron; 3 their hidden treasures, their most secret hoards, I will hand over to thee. Know by this that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who am calling upon thee by thy name; 4 and that I do it for love of my servant Jacob, of Israel, my chosen people. Yes, I have called thee by thy name; I have found a title for thee,[1] when thou of me hadst no knowledge as yet. 5 It is the Lord that speaks, and there is no other to rival me, no God but I; I, still unknown to thee, was fain to make thee strong, to what end? 6 Because I would proclaim it from east to west that there is no other God. It is the Lord that speaks, and there is no other to rival me; 7 I, the fashioner of darkness, the creator of light, I, the maker of peace, the author of calamity. I, the Lord, am the doer of all this. 1

Hæc dicit Dominus christo meo Cyro,
cujus apprehendi dexteram,
ut subjiciam ante faciem ejus gentes,
et dorsa regum vertam,
et aperiam coram eo januas,
et portæ non claudentur:
Ego ante te ibo, et gloriosos terræ humiliabo;
portas æreas conteram,
et vectes ferreos confringam:
et dabo tibi thesauros absconditos,
et arcana secretorum,
ut scias quia ego Dominus,
qui voco nomen tuum, Deus Israël,
propter servum meum Jacob,
et Israël, electum meum;
et vocavi te nomine tuo:
assimilavi te, et non cognovisti me.
Ego Dominus, et non est amplius;
extra me non est deus;
accinxi te, et non cognovisti me:
ut sciant hi qui ab ortu solis et qui ab occidente,
quoniam absque me non est:
ego Dominus, et non est alter:
formans lucem et creans tenebras,
faciens pacem et creans malum:
ego Dominus faciens omnia hæc.
8 εὐφρανθήτω ὁ οὐρανὸς ἄνωθεν καὶ αἱ νεφέλαι ῥανάτωσαν δικαιοσύνην ἀνατειλάτω ἡ γῆ ἔλεος καὶ δικαιοσύνην ἀνατειλάτω ἅμα ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος ὁ κτίσας σε 9 ποῖον βέλτιον κατεσκεύασα ὡς πηλὸν κεραμέως μὴ ὁ ἀροτριῶν ἀροτριάσει τὴν γῆν ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν μὴ ἐρεῖ ὁ πηλὸς τῷ κεραμεῖ τί ποιεῖς ὅτι οὐκ ἐργάζῃ οὐδὲ ἔχεις χεῖρας 10 ὁ λέγων τῷ πατρί τί γεννήσεις καὶ τῇ μητρί τί ὠδινήσεις 11 ὅτι οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ ἅγιος Ισραηλ ὁ ποιήσας τὰ ἐπερχόμενα ἐρωτήσατέ με περὶ τῶν υἱῶν μου καὶ περὶ τῶν θυγατέρων μου καὶ περὶ τῶν ἔργων τῶν χειρῶν μου ἐντείλασθέ μοι 12 ἐγὼ ἐποίησα γῆν καὶ ἄνθρωπον ἐ{P'} αὐτῆς ἐγὼ τῇ χειρί μου ἐστερέωσα τὸν οὐρανόν ἐγὼ πᾶσι τοῖς ἄστροις ἐνετειλάμην 13 ἐγὼ ἤγειρα αὐτὸν μετὰ δικαιοσύνης βασιλέα καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ ὁδοὶ αὐτοῦ εὐθεῖαι οὗτος οἰκοδομήσει τὴν πόλιν μου καὶ τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐπιστρέψει οὐ μετὰ λύτρων οὐδὲ μετὰ δώρων εἶπεν κύριος σαβαωθ 8 (You heavens, send dew from above, you skies, pour down upon us the rain we long for, him, the Just One; may he, the Saviour, spring from the closed womb of earth, and with him let right order take its being.[2])

I, the Lord, have made my servant what he is. 9 At his peril does man, poor shard of earthly clay, bandy words with his own Fashioner; shall the clay dare ask the potter who moulds it, What ails thee? Or tell him he is no craftsman? 10 Strange, if a man should be asked by his own son, why he begot him, or a woman, why she gave birth![3] 11 Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and Israel’s maker, Of me you must learn, what times they be that are coming; trust me to do what I will with my sons, with my own creatures. 12 It was I framed the earth, and created man to dwell in it; it was my hands that spread out the heavens, my voice that marshalled the starry host; 13 I, too, have summoned this man to perform my designs faithfully; go he where he will, my guidance shall be his. He shall build up my own city, he shall let my captives go free, without bribe or ransom, says the Lord of hosts.
Rorate, cæli, desuper,
et nubes pluant justum;
aperiatur terra, et germinet Salvatorem,
et justitia oriatur simul:
ego Dominus creavi eum.

Væ qui contradicit fictori suo,
testa de samiis terræ!
Numquid dicet lutum figulo suo: Quid facis,
et opus tuum absque manibus est?
Væ qui dicit patri: Quid generas?
et mulieri: Quid parturis?
Hæc dicit Dominus,
Sanctus Israël, plastes ejus:
Ventura interrogate me;
super filios meos et super opus manuum mearum mandate mihi.
Ego feci terram,
et hominem super eam creavi ego:
manus meæ tetenderunt cælos,
et omni militiæ eorum mandavi.
Ego suscitavi eum ad justitiam,
et omnes vias ejus dirigam;
ipse ædificabit civitatem meam,
et captivitatem meam dimittet,
non in pretio neque in muneribus,
dicit Dominus Deus exercituum.
14 οὕτως λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ ἐκοπίασεν Αἴγυπτος καὶ ἐμπορία Αἰθιόπων καὶ οἱ Σεβωιν ἄνδρες ὑψηλοὶ ἐπὶ σὲ διαβήσονται καὶ σοὶ ἔσονται δοῦλοι καὶ ὀπίσω σου ἀκολουθήσουσιν δεδεμένοι χειροπέδαις καὶ προσκυνήσουσίν σοι καὶ ἐν σοὶ προσεύξονται ὅτι ἐν σοὶ ὁ θεός ἐστιν καὶ ἐροῦσιν οὐκ ἔστιν θεὸς πλὴν σοῦ 14 This, too, the Lord says: all the toil of Egypt, all the merchandise of Ethiopia, and tall slaves from Sabaea shall come into thy power and be thine; they shall walk behind thee, their hands manacled as they go, paying thee reverence, and crying out, God is with thee, with thee only; there is no God where thou art not.[4] 14

Hæc dicit Dominus:
Labor Ægypti, et negotiatio Æthiopiæ,
et Sabaim viri sublimes
ad te transibunt, et tui erunt;
post te ambulabunt,
vincti manicis pergent, et te adorabunt,
teque deprecabuntur.
Tantum in te est Deus,
et non est absque te deus.
15 σὺ γὰρ εἶ θεός καὶ οὐκ ᾔδειμεν ὁ θεὸς τοῦ Ισραηλ σωτήρ 16 αἰσχυνθήσονται καὶ ἐντραπήσονται πάντες οἱ ἀντικείμενοι αὐτῷ καὶ πορεύσονται ἐν αἰσχύνῃ ἐγκαινίζεσθε πρός με νῆσοι 17 Ισραηλ σῴζεται ὑπὸ κυρίου σωτηρίαν αἰώνιον οὐκ αἰσχυνθήσονται οὐδὲ μὴ ἐντραπῶσιν ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος 18 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ ποιήσας τὸν οὐρανόν οὗτος ὁ θεὸς ὁ καταδείξας τὴν γῆν καὶ ποιήσας αὐτήν αὐτὸς διώρισεν αὐτήν οὐκ εἰς κενὸν ἐποίησεν αὐτὴν ἀλλὰ κατοικεῖσθαι ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι 19 οὐκ ἐν κρυφῇ λελάληκα οὐδὲ ἐν τόπῳ γῆς σκοτεινῷ οὐκ εἶπα τῷ σπέρματι Ιακωβ μάταιον ζητήσατε ἐγώ εἰμι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος λαλῶν δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἀναγγέλλων ἀλήθειαν 20 συνάχθητε καὶ ἥκετε βουλεύσασθε ἅμα οἱ σῳζόμενοι ἀπὸ τῶν ἐθνῶν οὐκ ἔγνωσαν οἱ αἴροντες τὸ ξύλον γλύμμα αὐτῶν καὶ προσευχόμενοι ὡς πρὸς θεούς οἳ οὐ σῴζουσιν 21 εἰ ἀναγγελοῦσιν ἐγγισάτωσαν ἵνα γνῶσιν ἅμα τίς ἀκουστὰ ἐποίησεν ταῦτα ἀ{P'} ἀρχῆς τότε ἀνηγγέλη ὑμῖν ἐγὼ ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλος πλὴν ἐμοῦ δίκαιος καὶ σωτὴρ οὐκ ἔστιν πάρεξ ἐμοῦ 22 ἐπιστράφητε πρός με καὶ σωθήσεσθε οἱ ἀ{P'} ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλος 23 κα{T'} ἐμαυτοῦ ὀμνύω ἦ μὴν ἐξελεύσεται ἐκ τοῦ στόματός μου δικαιοσύνη οἱ λόγοι μου οὐκ ἀποστραφήσονται 24 ὅτι ἐμοὶ κάμψει πᾶν γόνυ καὶ ἐξομολογήσεται πᾶσα γλῶσσα τῷ θεῷ 25 λέγων δικαιοσύνη καὶ δόξα πρὸς αὐτὸν ἥξουσιν καὶ αἰσχυνθήσονται πάντες οἱ ἀφορίζοντες ἑαυτούς 26 ἀπὸ κυρίου δικαιωθήσονται καὶ ἐν τῷ θεῷ ἐνδοξασθήσονται πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ 15 Truly, God of Israel, our Saviour, thou art a God of hidden ways! 16 All the makers of false gods must needs be disappointed, must go away ashamed and abashed. 17 Israel has found deliverance in the Lord, eternal deliverance; while ages last, no shame, no disappointment for you. 18 The Lord has pronounced it; the Lord who made the heavens, and the whole frame and fashion of earth, moulded to his will. He did not create it to lie idle, he shaped it to be man’s home. And he says, It is the Lord that speaks, there is no other to rival me; 19 it was not in secret, not in some dark recess of earth, that my word was spoken. Not in vain I bade the sons of Jacob search for me; I am the Lord, faithful to my promises, truthful in all I proclaim. 20 Gather yourselves and come near, flock together to my side, heathen men that have found deliverance; who still, in your ignorance, set up wooden images of your own fashioning, and pray to a god that cannot save. 21 Tell us your thoughts, come, take counsel among yourselves; who was it that proclaimed this from the first, prophesied it long ago? Was it not I, the Lord? There is no God where I am not. Was it not I, the faithful God? There is no other that can save. 22 Turn back to me, and win deliverance, all you that dwell in the remotest corners of the earth; I am God, there is no other. 23 By my own honour I have sworn it, nor shall it echo in vain, this faithful promise I have made, 24 that every knee shall bow before me, and every tongue swear by my name. 25 Then shall men say of the Lord, that redress and dominion come from him;[5] all those who rebelled against him shall appear in his presence abashed. 26 Through the Lord, the whole race of Israel shall be righted and brought to honour. 15
Vere tu es Deus absconditus,
Deus Israël, salvator.
Confusi sunt, et erubuerunt omnes:
simul abierunt in confusionem fabricatores errorum.
Israël salvatus est in Domino salute æterna;
non confundemini, et non erubescetis usque in sæculum sæculi.
Quia hæc dicit Dominus
creans cælos,
ipse Deus formans terram
et faciens eam, ipse plastes ejus;
non in vanum creavit eam:
ut habitaretur formavit eam:
Ego Dominus, et non est alius.
Non in abscondito locutus sum,
in loco terræ tenebroso;
non dixi semini Jacob frustra:
Quærite me:
ego Dominus loquens justitiam,
annuntians recta.
Congregamini, et venite, et accedite simul
qui salvati estis ex gentibus:
nescierunt qui levant lignum sculpturæ suæ,
et rogant deum non salvantem.
Annuntiate, et venite,
et consiliamini simul.
Quis auditum fecit hoc ab initio,
ex tunc prædixit illud?
numquid non ego Dominus,
et non est ultra deus absque me?
Deus justus, et salvans non est præter me.
Convertimini ad me, et salvi eritis,
omnes fines terræ,
quia ego Deus, et non est alius.
In memetipso juravi;
egredietur de ore meo justitiæ verbum,
et non revertetur:
quia mihi curvabitur omne genu,
et jurabit omnis lingua.
Ergo in Domino, dicet,
meæ sunt justitiæ et imperium;
ad eum venient, et confundentur
omnes qui repugnant ei.
In Domino justificabitur, et laudabitur
omne semen Israël.
