1 τάδε λέγει κύριος βάδισον καὶ κτῆσαι σεαυτῷ περίζωμα λινοῦν καὶ περίθου περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἐν ὕδατι οὐ διελεύσεται 2 καὶ ἐκτησάμην τὸ περίζωμα κατὰ τὸν λόγον κυρίου καὶ περιέθηκα περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν μου 3 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 4 λαβὲ τὸ περίζωμα τὸ περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἀνάστηθι καὶ βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ κατάκρυψον αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ ἐν τῇ τρυμαλιᾷ τῆς πέτρας 5 καὶ ἐπορεύθην καὶ ἔκρυψα αὐτὸ ἐν τῷ Εὐφράτῃ καθὼς ἐνετείλατό μοι κύριος 6 καὶ ἐγένετο με{Q'} ἡμέρας πολλὰς καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἀνάστηθι βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ λαβὲ ἐκεῖθεν τὸ περίζωμα ὃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τοῦ κατακρύψαι ἐκεῖ 7 καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην ποταμὸν καὶ ὤρυξα καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ περίζωμα ἐκ τοῦ τόπου οὗ κατώρυξα αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ καὶ ἰδοὺ διεφθαρμένον ἦν ὃ οὐ μὴ χρησθῇ εἰς οὐθέν 8 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 9 τάδε λέγει κύριος οὕτω φθερῶ τὴν ὕβριν Ιουδα καὶ τὴν ὕβριν Ιερουσαλημ 10 τὴν πολλὴν ταύτην ὕβριν τοὺς μὴ βουλομένους ὑπακούειν τῶν λόγων μου καὶ πορευθέντας ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῦ προσκυνεῖν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἔσονται ὥσπερ τὸ περίζωμα τοῦτο ὃ οὐ χρησθήσεται εἰς οὐθέν 11 ὅτι καθάπερ κολλᾶται τὸ περίζωμα περὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου οὕτως ἐκόλλησα πρὸς ἐμαυτὸν τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ πᾶν οἶκον Ιουδα τοῦ γενέσθαι μοι εἰς λαὸν ὀνομαστὸν καὶ εἰς καύχημα καὶ εἰς δόξαν καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσάν μου 1 The Lord’s word came to me: Go and buy a girdle of linen, and put it about thy loins, one that was never yet soaked in water. 2 Girdle I bought me as the Lord had bidden, and wore it; 3 and now the Lord spoke again: 4 Is the girdle bought and worn? Up, take it with thee to Euphrates river, and hide it there in a crevice of the rock. 5 So I went obediently, and hid it away in the Euphrates. 6 Many days afterwards, the Lord sent me on my travels again to the Euphrates, to recover the girdle hidden there at his command; 7 so thither I went, and unearthed the girdle from its hiding-place, to find it all perished and useless. 8 Whereupon the Lord’s word came to me, 9 and this was his message: Not less the great pride of Juda, the great pride of Jerusalem, must perish. 10 Here is a rebellious people that will not listen to my call; they must needs take their own false path, courting alien gods and submitting to their worship. No better, then, than yonder useless girdle; 11 close as a man’s girdle fits about his loins I had bound Israel and Juda to myself; my people they were to be, my renown and prize and pride; but no, they would not listen.[1] 1 Hæc dicit Dominus ad me: Vade, et posside tibi lumbare lineum, et pones illud super lumbos tuos, et in aquam non inferes illud. 2 Et possedi lumbare juxta verbum Domini, et posui circa lumbos meos. 3 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me secundo, dicens: 4 Tolle lumbare quod possedisti, quod est circa lumbos tuos: et surgens vade ad Euphraten, et absconde ibi illud in foramine petræ. 5 Et abii, et abscondi illud in Euphrate, sicut præceperat mihi Dominus. 6 Et factum est post dies plurimos, dixit Dominus ad me: Surge, vade ad Euphraten, et tolle inde lumbare quod præcepi tibi ut absconderes illud ibi. 7 Et abii ad Euphraten, et fodi, et tuli lumbare de loco ubi absconderam illud: et ecce computruerat lumbare, ita ut nulli usui aptum esset. 8 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens: 9

Hæc dicit Dominus:
Sic putrescere faciam superbiam Juda,
et superbiam Jerusalem multam:
populum istum pessimum qui nolunt audire verba mea,
et ambulant in pravitate cordis sui,
abieruntque post deos alienos ut servirent eis et adorarent eos:
et erunt sicut lumbare istud,
quod nulli usui aptum est.
Sicut enim adhæret lumbare ad lumbos viri,
sic agglutinavi mihi omnem domum Israël,
et omnem domum Juda, dicit Dominus,
ut essent mihi in populum,
et in nomen, et in laudem, et in gloriam:
et non audierunt.
12 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον πᾶς ἀσκὸς πληρωθήσεται οἴνου καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν εἴπωσιν πρὸς σέ μὴ γνόντες οὐ γνωσόμεθα ὅτι πᾶς ἀσκὸς πληρωθήσεται οἴνου 13 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ πληρῶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν τοὺς καθημένους υἱοὺς Δαυιδ ἐπὶ θρόνου αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς προφήτας καὶ τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Ιερουσαλημ μεθύσματι 14 καὶ διασκορπιῶ αὐτοὺς ἄνδρα καὶ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ οὐκ ἐπιποθήσω λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐ φείσομαι καὶ οὐκ οἰκτιρήσω ἀπὸ διαφθορᾶς αὐτῶν 12 Tell them this, too, from the Lord God of Israel, Flagons must have wine to fill them. And when they answer, it is no news to them that flagons are for wine, 13 give them this message from the Lord: Ay, but the people of this land, king of David’s line sitting on David’s throne, priest and prophet and citizens of Jerusalem every one, are flagons waiting to be filled. I mean to bemuse them, as with wine, 14 and then shatter[2] them; brother torn away from brother, and fathers from their children; ruth and respite none shall have, nor be spared in the common ruin. 12 Dices ergo ad eos sermonem istum:

Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël:
Omnis laguncula implebitur vino.

Et dicent ad te:

Numquid ignoramus quia omnis laguncula implebitur vino?
13 Et dices ad eos:

Hæc dicit Dominus:
Ecce ego implebo omnes habitatores terræ hujus,
et reges qui sedent de stirpe David super thronum ejus,
et sacerdotes, et prophetas,
et omnes habitatores Jerusalem, ebrietate.
Et dispergam eos virum a fratre suo,
et patres et filios pariter, ait Dominus.
Non parcam, et non concedam:
neque miserebor, ut non disperdam eos.
15 ἀκούσατε καὶ ἐνωτίσασθε καὶ μὴ ἐπαίρεσθε ὅτι κύριος ἐλάλησεν 16 δότε τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑμῶν δόξαν πρὸ τοῦ συσκοτάσαι καὶ πρὸς τοῦ προσκόψαι πόδας ὑμῶν ἐ{P'} ὄρη σκοτεινὰ καὶ ἀναμενεῖτε εἰς φῶς καὶ ἐκεῖ σκιὰ θανάτου καὶ τεθήσονται εἰς σκότος 17 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ἀκούσητε κεκρυμμένως κλαύσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ὑμῶν ἀπὸ προσώπου ὕβρεως καὶ κατάξουσιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν δάκρυα ὅτι συνετρίβη τὸ ποίμνιον κυρίου 15 Hear and heed and humble yourselves; it is the Lord who speaks. 16 Give God his due, ere the shadows fall, and your feet begin to stumble on the dark mountain-ways. For day you shall long, but he will have turned it into night; dark as death the lowering of the storm. 17 Sirs, if you will not listen now, give me leave to hide myself away and bemoan your proud hearts; weep I must and wail, and my eyes run down with tears, if the Lord’s flock is doomed to captivity. 15
Audite, et auribus percipite:
nolite elevari, quia Dominus locutus est.
Date Domino Deo vestro gloriam
antequam contenebrescat,
et antequam offendant pedes vestri ad montes caliginosos:
exspectabitis lucem,
et ponet eam in umbram mortis, et in caliginem.
Quod si hoc non audieritis,
in abscondito plorabit anima mea a facie superbiæ:
plorans plorabit,
et deducet oculus meus lacrimam,
quia captus est grex Domini.
18 εἴπατε τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ τοῖς δυναστεύουσιν ταπεινώθητε καὶ καθίσατε ὅτι καθῃρέθη ἀπὸ κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν στέφανος δόξης ὑμῶν 19 πόλεις αἱ πρὸς νότον συνεκλείσθησαν καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀνοίγων ἀπῳκίσθη Ιουδας συνετέλεσεν ἀποικίαν τελείαν 20 ἀνάλαβε ὀφθαλμούς σου Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἰδὲ τοὺς ἐρχομένους ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ποῦ ἐστιν τὸ ποίμνιον ὃ ἐδόθη σοι πρόβατα δόξης σου 21 τί ἐρεῖς ὅταν ἐπισκέπτωνταί σε καὶ σὺ ἐδίδαξας αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ σὲ μαθήματα εἰς ἀρχήν οὐκ ὠδῖνες καθέξουσίν σε καθὼς γυναῖκα τίκτουσαν 22 καὶ ἐὰν εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου διὰ τί ἀπήντησέν μοι ταῦτα διὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς ἀδικίας σου ἀνεκαλύφθη τὰ ὀπίσθιά σου παραδειγματισθῆναι τὰς πτέρνας σου 23 εἰ ἀλλάξεται Αἰθίοψ τὸ δέρμα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάρδαλις τὰ ποικίλματα αὐτῆς καὶ ὑμεῖς δυνήσεσθε εὖ ποιῆσαι μεμαθηκότες τὰ κακά 24 καὶ διέσπειρα αὐτοὺς ὡς φρύγανα φερόμενα ὑπὸ ἀνέμου εἰς ἔρημον 25 οὗτος ὁ κλῆρός σου καὶ μερὶς τοῦ ἀπειθεῖν ὑμᾶς ἐμοί λέγει κύριος ὡς ἐπελάθου μου καὶ ἤλπισας ἐπὶ ψεύδεσιν 26 κἀγὼ ἀποκαλύψω τὰ ὀπίσω σου ἐπὶ τὸ πρόσωπόν σου καὶ ὀφθήσεται ἡ ἀτιμία σου 27 καὶ ἡ μοιχεία σου καὶ ὁ χρεμετισμός σου καὶ ἡ ἀπαλλοτρίωσις τῆς πορνείας σου ἐπὶ τῶν βουνῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς ἑώρακα τὰ βδελύγματά σου οὐαί σοι Ιερουσαλημ ὅτι οὐκ ἐκαθαρίσθης ὀπίσω μου ἕως τίνος ἔτι 18 To king[3] and queen-mother say this, Come down and take your places with the rest, discrowned of your royalty. 19 Shut off are the cities of the south, entry is none; dispeopled lies Juda, of all her sons dispeopled. 20 New-comers from the north country, look about you and see! …[4]

… Ah, Jerusalem, what has become of the flock once entrusted to thee, thy honourable care? 21 What wilt thou say when thou art called to give account of it? Thy enemies are such as thou hast taught how to attack thee; thy schooling has recoiled on thy own head; sharper than travail-throes the anguish that shall overtake thee. 22 And wilt thou find room for surmise, why this should have befallen thee? Doubt not it is thy own wrong-doing that has stripped thee naked, and plunged thy steps deep in defilement. 23 Sooner may Ethiop turn white, leopard’s hide unmarked, than Juda unlearn the lesson of ill-doing and amend. 24 Far and wide I will scatter thy sons, like straws caught in the desert wind; 25 such is the fortune sent thee, such thy retribution exactly awarded, because thou hast forgotten me, and in lying fables put thy trust. 26 That is why I will pull thy skirts about thy ears and manifest thy shame; 27 adulteries of thine, and lasciviousness, and all the guilt of thy debauchery, the foul deeds I have seen done on hill-tops, in the open country-side. Fie on thee, Jerusalem, that wilt not come back to me and be cleansed! Shall it last for ever?
Dic regi et dominatrici:
Humiliamini, sedete,
quoniam descendit de capite vestro corona gloriæ vestræ.
Civitates austri clausæ sunt,
et non est qui aperiat:
translata est omnis Juda transmigratione perfecta.
Levate oculos vestros et videte,
qui venitis ab aquilone:
ubi est grex qui datus est tibi,
pecus inclytum tuum?
Quid dices cum visitaverit te?
tu enim docuisti eos adversum te,
et erudisti in caput tuum.
Numquid non dolores apprehendent te,
quasi mulierem parturientem?
Quod si dixeris in corde tuo: Quare venerunt mihi hæc?
propter multitudinem iniquitatis tuæ
revelata sunt verecundiora tua,
pollutæ sunt plantæ tuæ.
Si mutare potest Æthiops pellem suam,
aut pardus varietates suas,
et vos poteritis benefacere,
cum didiceritis malum.
Et disseminabo eos quasi stipulam
quæ vento raptatur in deserto.
Hæc sors tua,
parsque mensuræ tuæ a me, dicit Dominus,
quia oblita es mei,
et confisa es in mendacio.
Unde et ego nudavi femora tua contra faciem tuam,
et apparuit ignominia tua:
adulteria tua, et hinnitus tuus,
scelus fornicationis tuæ:
super colles in agro vidi abominationes tuas.
Væ tibi, Jerusalem!
non mundaberis post me: usquequo adhuc?
