1 ἐμφανὴς ἐγενόμην τοῖς ἐμὲ μὴ ζητοῦσιν εὑρέθην τοῖς ἐμὲ μὴ ἐπερωτῶσιν εἶπα ἰδού εἰμι τῷ ἔθνει οἳ οὐκ ἐκάλεσάν μου τὸ ὄνομα 2 ἐξεπέτασα τὰς χεῖράς μου ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν πρὸς λαὸν ἀπειθοῦντα καὶ ἀντιλέγοντα οἳ οὐκ ἐπορεύθησαν ὁδῷ ἀληθινῇ ἀλ{L'} ὀπίσω τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν 3 ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ὁ παροξύνων με ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ διὰ παντός αὐτοὶ θυσιάζουσιν ἐν τοῖς κήποις καὶ θυμιῶσιν ἐπὶ ταῖς πλίνθοις τοῖς δαιμονίοις ἃ οὐκ ἔστιν 4 καὶ ἐν τοῖς μνήμασιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς σπηλαίοις κοιμῶνται δ{I'} ἐνύπνια οἱ ἔσθοντες κρέα ὕεια καὶ ζωμὸν θυσιῶν μεμολυμμένα πάντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτῶν 5 οἱ λέγοντες πόρρω ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ μὴ ἐγγίσῃς μου ὅτι καθαρός εἰμι οὗτος καπνὸς τοῦ θυμοῦ μου πῦρ καίεται ἐν αὐτῷ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας 6 ἰδοὺ γέγραπται ἐνώπιόν μου οὐ σιωπήσω ἕως ἂν ἀποδῶ εἰς τὸν κόλπον αὐτῶν 7 τὰς ἁμαρτίας αὐτῶν καὶ τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν λέγει κύριος οἳ ἐθυμίασαν ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν βουνῶν ὠνείδισάν με ἀποδώσω τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν κόλπον αὐτῶν 1 So ready I to answer, and ask they will not; so easy to be found, and search for me is none! A people that will not call on my name; else my own voice should whisper, I am here, I am close at hand.[1] 2 Outstretched these hands of mine, all the day long, to a nation of rebels, straying this way and that as the mood takes them, 3 openly defying me. Shrines hidden away in gardens, altars of brick! 4 See how they lodge in tombs, pass the night in the precincts of strange gods;[2] eat swine’s flesh, and stew themselves broth of forbidden things! 5 And all the while so scrupulous: Touch of thine would defile me! What marvel, if my indignation smoulders yet? Nay, fire it is that burns continually. 6 See where the decree stands written in my presence, This shall not be passed over; I will take vengeance, pour it out into their laps. 7 Sin of yours, the Lord says, sin of your fathers, that sacrificed on mountain-tops, worshipped on the hill-sides in defiance of me; for all these I must repay due measure, poured out into the lap; that is my first task. 1

Quæsierunt me qui ante non interrogabant;
invenerunt qui non quæsierunt me.
Dixi: Ecce ego, ecce ego,
ad gentem quæ non invocabat nomen meum.
Expandi manus meas tota die
ad populum incredulum,
qui graditur in via non bona
post cogitationes suas.
Populus qui ad iracundiam provocat me
ante faciem meam semper;
qui immolant in hortis,
et sacrificant super lateres;
qui habitant in sepulchris,
et in delubris idolorum dormiunt;
qui comedunt carnem suillam,
et jus profanum in vasis eorum;
qui dicunt: Recede a me,
non appropinques mihi, quia immundus es.
Isti fumus erunt in furore meo,
ignis ardens tota die.
Ecce scriptum est coram me:
Non tacebo, sed reddam,
et retribuam in sinum eorum.
Iniquitates vestras, et iniquitates patrum vestrorum simul,
dicit Dominus;
qui sacrificaverunt super montes,
et super colles exprobraverunt mihi;
et remetiar opus eorum primum
in sinu eorum.
8 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὃν τρόπον εὑρεθήσεται ὁ ῥὼξ ἐν τῷ βότρυι καὶ ἐροῦσιν μὴ λυμήνῃ αὐτὸν ὅτι εὐλογία κυρίου ἐστὶν ἐν αὐτῷ οὕτως ποιήσω ἕνεκεν τοῦ δουλεύοντός μοι τούτου ἕνεκεν οὐ μὴ ἀπολέσω πάντας 9 καὶ ἐξάξω τὸ ἐξ Ιακωβ σπέρμα καὶ τὸ ἐξ Ιουδα καὶ κληρονομήσει τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν οἱ ἐκλεκτοί μου καὶ οἱ δοῦλοί μου καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἐκεῖ 10 καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τῷ δρυμῷ ἐπαύλεις ποιμνίων καὶ φάραγξ Αχωρ εἰς ἀνάπαυσιν βουκολίων τῷ λαῷ μου οἳ ἐζήτησάν με 11 ὑμεῖς δὲ οἱ ἐγκαταλιπόντες με καὶ ἐπιλανθανόμενοι τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου καὶ ἑτοιμάζοντες τῷ δαίμονι τράπεζαν καὶ πληροῦντες τῇ τύχῃ κέρασμα 12 ἐγὼ παραδώσω ὑμᾶς εἰς μάχαιραν πάντες ἐν σφαγῇ πεσεῖσθε ὅτι ἐκάλεσα ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐχ ὑπηκούσατε ἐλάλησα καὶ παρηκούσατε καὶ ἐποιήσατε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ καὶ ἃ οὐκ ἐβουλόμην ἐξελέξασθε 13 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι φάγονται ὑμεῖς δὲ πεινάσετε ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι πίονται ὑμεῖς δὲ διψήσετε ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι εὐφρανθήσονται ὑμεῖς δὲ αἰσχυνθήσεσθε 14 ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι ἀγαλλιάσονται ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ ὑμεῖς δὲ κεκράξεσθε διὰ τὸν πόνον τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ ἀπὸ συντριβῆς πνεύματος ὀλολύξετε 15 καταλείψετε γὰρ τὸ ὄνομα ὑμῶν εἰς πλησμονὴν τοῖς ἐκλεκτοῖς μου ὑμᾶς δὲ ἀνελεῖ κύριος τοῖς δὲ δουλεύουσιν αὐτῷ κληθήσεται ὄνομα καινόν 16 ὃ εὐλογηθήσεται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εὐλογήσουσιν γὰρ τὸν θεὸν τὸν ἀληθινόν καὶ οἱ ὀμνύοντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὀμοῦνται τὸν θεὸν τὸν ἀληθινόν ἐπιλήσονται γὰρ τὴν θλῖψιν αὐτῶν τὴν πρώτην καὶ οὐκ ἀναβήσεται αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν 8 Thus says the Lord: If one sound grape is found in a cluster, the cry is, Do not destroy it, there is a blessing in it. And I, for the sake of my true servants, will not destroy root and branch; 9 I will leave Jacob a stock to breed from, settlers enough in Juda for these mountains of mine; the men of my choice shall have their portion, my servant shall dwell there. 10 Flocks there shall be, folded on the Plain,[3] and cattle resting in the valley of Achor; of my people none shall be disappointed that had recourse to me. 11 But you that forsook the Lord, left his mountain sanctuary forgotten, spread a table for the Powers of Fortune, and poured out wine at it,[4] 12 fortune that awaits you is the sword, you shall bow down to death. My call unanswered, my voice unheard, you did ever what I forbade, chose ever what I hated. 13 This, then, is the sentence the Lord God pronounces; you shall be hungry, while my servants have food, you shall be thirsty, while my servants drink, 14 you shall be disappointed, while my servants are glad. My servants shall be light-hearted and sing, while you, with sad hearts, cry aloud, groan in the heaviness of your spirits. 15 A name you shall leave behind you to serve my chosen people as a curse; the Lord God takes full toll. For his own servants he will have a new name instead; 16 By the God of truth shall be the blessing men invoke, By the God of truth shall be the oath men take, in this land of mine henceforward.[5] Forgotten, the sorrows of past days, hidden away from my eyes. 8
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Quomodo si inveniatur granum in botro,
et dicatur: Ne dissipes illud,
quoniam benedictio est:
sic faciam propter servos meos,
ut non disperdam totum.
Et educam de Jacob semen,
et de Juda possidentem montes meos;
et hæreditabunt eam electi mei,
et servi mei habitabunt ibi.
Et erunt campestria in caulas gregum,
et vallis Achor in cubile armentorum,
populo meo qui requisierunt me.
Et vos qui dereliquistis Dominum,
qui obliti estis montem sanctum meum,
qui ponitis fortunæ mensam,
et libatis super eam:
numerabo vos in gladio,
et omnes in cæde corruetis:
pro eo quod vocavi, et non respondistis;
locutus sum, et non audistis;
et faciebatis malum in oculis meis,
et quæ nolui elegistis.
Propter hoc hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce servi mei comedent,
et vos esurietis;
ecce servi mei bibent,
et vos sitietis;
ecce servi mei lætabuntur,
et vos confundemini;
ecce servi mei laudabunt præ exsultatione cordis,
et vos clamabitis præ dolore cordis,
et præ contritione spiritus ululabitis,
et dimittetis nomen vestrum in juramentum electis meis;
et interficiet te Dominus Deus,
et servos suos vocabit nomine alio:
in quo qui benedictus est super terram
benedicetur in Deo, amen,
et qui jurat in terra
jurabit in Deo, amen:
quia oblivioni traditæ sunt angustiæ priores,
et quia absconditæ sunt ab oculis meis.
17 ἔσται γὰρ ὁ οὐρανὸς καινὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ καινή καὶ οὐ μὴ μνησθῶσιν τῶν προτέρων οὐ{D'} οὐ μὴ ἐπέλθῃ αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν 18 ἀλ{L'} εὐφροσύνην καὶ ἀγαλλίαμα εὑρήσουσιν ἐν αὐτῇ ὅτι ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ποιῶ Ιερουσαλημ ἀγαλλίαμα καὶ τὸν λαόν μου εὐφροσύνην 19 καὶ ἀγαλλιάσομαι ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ εὐφρανθήσομαι ἐπὶ τῷ λαῷ μου καὶ οὐκέτι μὴ ἀκουσθῇ ἐν αὐτῇ φωνὴ κλαυθμοῦ οὐδὲ φωνὴ κραυγῆς 20 καὶ οὐ μὴ γένηται ἐκεῖ ἄωρος καὶ πρεσβύτης ὃς οὐκ ἐμπλήσει τὸν χρόνον αὐτοῦ ἔσται γὰρ ὁ νέος ἑκατὸν ἐτῶν ὁ δὲ ἀποθνῄσκων ἁμαρτωλὸς ἑκατὸν ἐτῶν καὶ ἐπικατάρατος ἔσται 21 καὶ οἰκοδομήσουσιν οἰκίας καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐνοικήσουσιν καὶ καταφυτεύσουσιν ἀμπελῶνας καὶ αὐτοὶ φάγονται τὰ γενήματα αὐτῶν 22 καὶ οὐ μὴ οἰκοδομήσουσιν καὶ ἄλλοι ἐνοικήσουσιν καὶ οὐ μὴ φυτεύσουσιν καὶ ἄλλοι φάγονται κατὰ γὰρ τὰς ἡμέρας τοῦ ξύλου τῆς ζωῆς ἔσονται αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ λαοῦ μου τὰ ἔργα τῶν πόνων αὐτῶν παλαιώσουσιν 23 οἱ δὲ ἐκλεκτοί μου οὐ κοπιάσουσιν εἰς κενὸν οὐδὲ τεκνοποιήσουσιν εἰς κατάραν ὅτι σπέρμα ηὐλογημένον ὑπὸ θεοῦ ἐστιν καὶ τὰ ἔκγονα αὐτῶν με{T'} αὐτῶν ἔσονται 24 καὶ ἔσται πρὶν κεκράξαι αὐτοὺς ἐγὼ ἐπακούσομαι αὐτῶν ἔτι λαλούντων αὐτῶν ἐρῶ τί ἐστιν 25 τότε λύκοι καὶ ἄρνες βοσκηθήσονται ἅμα καὶ λέων ὡς βοῦς φάγεται ἄχυρα ὄφις δὲ γῆν ὡς ἄρτον οὐκ ἀδικήσουσιν οὐδὲ μὴ λυμανοῦνται ἐπὶ τῷ ὄρει τῷ ἁγίῳ μου λέγει κύριος 17 See where I create new heavens and a new earth; old things shall be remembered no longer, have no place in men’s thoughts. 18 Joy of yours, pride of yours, this new creation shall be; joy of mine, pride of mine, Jerusalem and her folk, created anew. 19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem, take pride in my people, and the sound of weeping and lament shall be heard among them no more. 20 None shall die there unweaned from life; never an old man but lives out his full time; young he dies that dies a hundred years old; so brief a span, it shall be the curse pronounced on a sinner.[6] 21 Live they now to occupy the houses they built, enjoy the fruit of the vines they planted, 22 that once built houses for others to occupy, planted what others should enjoy; my people shall live to the age of trees and see the work of their own hands wear out before them. 23 Not in vain they shall toil, these, my chosen, nor beget children to see them overwhelmed by calamity; their race the Lord blesses, their children shall be spared to them. 24 Answer shall come ere cry for help is uttered, prayer find audience while it is yet on their lips. 25 Wolf and lamb shall feed together, lion and ox eat straw side by side, and the serpent be content with dust for its food; all over this mountain, my sanctuary, there shall be no hurt done, the Lord says, no life shall be forfeit. 17
Ecce enim ego creo cælos novos,
et terram novam;
et non erunt in memoria priora,
et non ascendent super cor.
Sed gaudebitis et exsultabitis usque in sempiternum
in his quæ ego creo:
quia ecce ego creo Jerusalem exsultationem,
et populum ejus gaudium.
Et exsultabo in Jerusalem,
et gaudebo in populo meo,
et non audietur in eo ultra
vox fletus et vox clamoris.
Non erit ibi amplius infans dierum,
et senex qui non impleat dies suos,
quoniam puer centum annorum morietur,
et peccator centum annorum maledictus erit.
Et ædificabunt domos, et habitabunt;
et plantabunt vineas, et comedent fructus earum.
Non ædificabunt, et alius habitabit;
non plantabunt, et alius comedet:
secundum enim dies ligni erunt dies populi mei,
et opera manuum eorum inveterabunt.
Electi mei non laborabunt frustra,
neque generabunt in conturbatione,
quia semen benedictorum Domini est,
et nepotes eorum cum eis.
Eritque antequam clament, ego exaudiam;
adhuc illis loquentibus, ego audiam.
Lupus et agnus pascentur simul,
leo et bos comedent paleas,
et serpenti pulvis panis ejus.
Non nocebunt, neque occident
in omni monte sancto meo, dicit Dominus.
