1 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 2 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου εἰπόν τάδε λέγει κύριος τῇ γῇ τοῦ Ισραηλ πέρας ἥκει τὸ πέρας ἥκει ἐπὶ τὰς τέσσαρας πτέρυγας τῆς γῆς 3 ἥκει τὸ πέρας 4 ἐπὶ σὲ τὸν κατοικοῦντα τὴν γῆν ἥκει ὁ καιρός ἤγγικεν ἡ ἡμέρα οὐ μετὰ θορύβων οὐδὲ μετὰ ὠδίνων 5 νῦν ἐγγύθεν ἐκχεῶ τὴν ὀργήν μου ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ συντελέσω τὸν θυμόν μου ἐν σοὶ καὶ κρινῶ σε ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς σου καὶ δώσω ἐπὶ σὲ πάντα τὰ βδελύγματά σου 6 οὐ φείσεται ὁ ὀφθαλμός μου οὐδὲ μὴ ἐλεήσω διότι τὰς ὁδούς σου ἐπὶ σὲ δώσω καὶ τὰ βδελύγματά σου ἐν μέσῳ σου ἔσονται καὶ ἐπιγνώσῃ διότι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος ὁ τύπτων 7 νῦν τὸ πέρας πρὸς σέ καὶ ἀποστελῶ ἐγὼ ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ ἐκδικήσω σε ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς σου καὶ δώσω ἐπὶ σὲ πάντα τὰ βδελύγματά σου 8 οὐ φείσεται ὁ ὀφθαλμός μου ἐπὶ σέ οὐδὲ μὴ ἐλεήσω διότι τὴν ὁδόν σου ἐπὶ σὲ δώσω καὶ τὰ βδελύγματά σου ἐν μέσῳ σου ἔσται καὶ ἐπιγνώσῃ διότι ἐγὼ κύριος 9 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος 1 Then the Lord’s word came to me: 2 And thou, son of man …[1] A message to the land of Israel from the Lord God! For this land, for every corner of it, here is doom, here is doom. 3 Doom for thee at last; I mean to wreak vengeance on thee, pass sentence on thy evil life, bring home to thee thy foul deeds. 4 Nor shall my eye melt with pity; I will not spare. All thy evil life brought home to thee, all thy foul deeds confronting thee; who shall doubt that it comes from the Lord? 5 The blow, the first blow has fallen, says the Lord God; 6 all is over now, all is over; the day dawns, and for thee doom comes with day. 7 Dwellers in the land, this is the end of you; your time is up, your day has come; a day when your mountains shall echo with tumult, not with harvest-home.[2] 8 Close at hand, now, I will rain down my vengeance upon you, give my anger full play, no crime unjudged, no weight of punishment unborne. 9 Never shall my eye melt with pity for thee; all thy evil life shall be accounted for, all thy foul deeds brought to light; and none shall doubt that I, the Lord, punish. 1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me, dicens: 2 Et tu, fili hominis, hæc dicit Dominus Deus terræ Israël:

Finis venit: venit finis super quatuor plagas terræ.
Nunc finis super te, et immittam furorem meum in te:
et judicabo te juxta vias tuas,
et ponam contra te omnes abominationes tuas.
Et non parcet oculus meus super te, et non miserebor:
sed vias tuas ponam super te, et abominationes tuæ in medio tui erunt,
et scietis quia ego Dominus.
Hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Afflictio una, afflictio ecce venit.
Finis venit, venit finis:
evigilavit adversum te, ecce venit.
Venit contritio super te, qui habitas in terra:
venit tempus, prope est dies occisionis,
et non gloriæ montium.
Nunc de propinquo effundam iram meam super te,
et complebo furorem meum in te:
et judicabo te juxta vias tuas,
et imponam tibi omnia scelera tua,
et non parcet oculus meus,
nec miserebor:
sed vias tuas imponam tibi,
et abominationes tuæ in medio tui erunt,
et scietis quia ego sum Dominus percutiens.
10 ἰδοὺ τὸ πέρας ἥκει ἰδοὺ ἡμέρα κυρίου εἰ καὶ ἡ ῥάβδος ἤνθηκεν ἡ ὕβρις ἐξανέστηκεν 11 καὶ συντρίψει στήριγμα ἀνόμου καὶ οὐ μετὰ θορύβου οὐδὲ μετὰ σπουδῆς 12 ἥκει ὁ καιρός ἰδοὺ ἡ ἡμέρα ὁ κτώμενος μὴ χαιρέτω καὶ ὁ πωλῶν μὴ θρηνείτω 13 διότι ὁ κτώμενος πρὸς τὸν πωλοῦντα οὐκέτι μὴ ἐπιστρέψῃ καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἐν ὀφθαλμῷ ζωῆς αὐτοῦ οὐ κρατήσει 10 It has come, the day has come; the wheel full circle,[3] the branch in full bloom, pride bears its harvest. 11 Violence has grown up into a shoot of rebellion … and not by their means, not through clamouring multitude of theirs; rest they shall have none. 12 The time is up, the day of reckoning come; who buys now, of his purchase shall have no joy, who sells now, shall not feel his loss; the Lord’s vengeance will overtake the whole throng of citizens alike;[4] 13 alas! here is property alienated for ever, though buyer and seller count among the living yet. The vision is for the whole throng of citizens; there is no reversing it; never a man of that guilty race shall survive.[5] 10
Ecce dies, ecce venit:
egressa est contritio,
floruit virga, germinavit superbia,
iniquitas surrexit in virga impietatis:
non ex eis, et non ex populo,
neque ex sonitu eorum:
et non erit requies in eis.
Venit tempus, appropinquavit dies:
qui emit, non lætetur,
et qui vendit, non lugeat:
quia ira super omnem populum ejus.
Quia qui vendit, ad id quod vendidit non revertetur:
et adhuc in viventibus vita eorum:
visio enim ad omnem multitudinem ejus non regredietur,
et vir in iniquitate vitæ suæ non confortabitur.
14 σαλπίσατε ἐν σάλπιγγι καὶ κρίνατε τὰ σύμπαντα 15 ὁ πόλεμος ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ ἔξωθεν καὶ ὁ λιμὸς καὶ ὁ θάνατος ἔσωθεν ὁ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ τελευτήσει τοὺς δὲ ἐν τῇ πόλει λιμὸς καὶ θάνατος συντελέσει 16 καὶ ἀνασωθήσονται οἱ ἀνασῳζόμενοι ἐξ αὐτῶν καὶ ἔσονται ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων πάντας ἀποκτενῶ ἕκαστον ἐν ταῖς ἀδικίαις αὐτοῦ 17 πᾶσαι χεῖρες ἐκλυθήσονται καὶ πάντες μηροὶ μολυνθήσονται ὑγρασίᾳ 18 καὶ περιζώσονται σάκκους καὶ καλύψει αὐτοὺς θάμβος καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶν πρόσωπον αἰσχύνη ἐ{P'} αὐτούς καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν κεφαλὴν φαλάκρωμα 19 τὸ ἀργύριον αὐτῶν ῥιφήσεται ἐν ταῖς πλατείαις καὶ τὸ χρυσίον αὐτῶν ὑπεροφθήσεται αἱ ψυχαὶ αὐτῶν οὐ μὴ ἐμπλησθῶσιν καὶ αἱ κοιλίαι αὐτῶν οὐ μὴ πληρωθῶσιν διότι βάσανος τῶν ἀδικιῶν αὐτῶν ἐγένετο 20 ἐκλεκτὰ κόσμου εἰς ὑπερηφανίαν ἔθεντο αὐτὰ καὶ εἰκόνας τῶν βδελυγμάτων αὐτῶν ἐποίησαν ἐξ αὐτῶν ἕνεκεν τούτου δέδωκα αὐτὰ αὐτοῖς εἰς ἀκαθαρσίαν 21 καὶ παραδώσω αὐτὰ εἰς χεῖρας ἀλλοτρίων τοῦ διαρπάσαι αὐτὰ καὶ τοῖς λοιμοῖς τῆς γῆς εἰς σκῦλα καὶ βεβηλώσουσιν αὐτά 22 καὶ ἀποστρέψω τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἀ{P'} αὐτῶν καὶ μιανοῦσιν τὴν ἐπισκοπήν μου καὶ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς αὐτὰ ἀφυλάκτως καὶ βεβηλώσουσιν αὐτά 23 καὶ ποιήσουσι φυρμόν διότι ἡ γῆ πλήρης λαῶν καὶ ἡ πόλις πλήρης ἀνομίας 24 καὶ ἀποστρέψω τὸ φρύαγμα τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτῶν καὶ μιανθήσεται τὰ ἅγια αὐτῶν 14 Sound the trumpet there, rally all to arms! But none goes out to war; on the whole throng of citizens my vengeance has fallen; 15 sword without, pestilence and famine within; sword for the straggler, pestilence and famine for the besieged. 16 Fugitives there shall be that make good their flight, but these must take to the mountains, fluttered as the doves that haunt their ravines, sinners all; 17 hands that hang listless, knees weak as water. 18 See where men go clad in sackcloth, trembling in every limb, with downcast faces, and their heads shorn! 19 See where they cast their silver out of doors, their gold on to the dung-hill; how should precious metal speed them in this day of the Lord’s vengeance? Hunger it sates not, belly it fills not; and this, all the while, was the very occasion of their guilt! 20 Did they not pride themselves on the beauty of their workmanship, was it not from this they made images of their detestable false gods? And now there it lies, all defilement! 21 Now I am giving it over to strangers for spoil; the vilest of earth’s inhabitants shall plunder it. 22 Still my eyes shall be averted, while my own treasure-chamber is broken open, while the enemy’s pursuivants enter and profane it. 23 Make short work of it,[6] a land where innocent lives are forfeit, a nest of wrong! 24 The very refuse of the heathen I will summon to dispossess them of their homes, to be masters of their holy places, that proud boast of theirs[7] now for ever silenced. 14

Canite tuba, præparentur omnes:
et non est qui vadat ad prælium:
ira enim mea super universum populum ejus.
Gladium foris, et pestis et fames intrinsecus:
qui in agro est, gladio morietur,
et qui in civitate, pestilentia et fame devorabuntur.
Et salvabuntur qui fugerint ex eis:
et erunt in montibus quasi columbæ convallium omnes trepidi,
unusquisque in iniquitate sua.
Omnes manus dissolventur,
et omnia genua fluent aquis.
Et accingent se ciliciis,
et operiet eos formido:
et in omni facie confusio,
et in universis capitibus eorum calvitium.
Argentum eorum foras projicietur,
et aurum eorum in sterquilinium erit:
argentum eorum et aurum eorum
non valebit liberare eos in die furoris Domini:
animam suam non saturabunt,
et ventres eorum non implebuntur,
quia scandalum iniquitatis eorum factum est.
Et ornamentum monilium suorum in superbiam posuerunt,
et imagines abominationum suarum et simulacrorum fecerunt ex eo:
propter hoc dedi eis illud in immunditiam.
Et dabo illud in manus alienorum ad diripiendum,
et impiis terræ in prædam,
et contaminabunt illud.
Et avertam faciem meam ab eis,
et violabunt arcanum meum:
et introibunt in illud emissarii,
et contaminabunt illud.
Fac conclusionem,
quoniam terra plena est judicio sanguinum,
et civitas plena iniquitate.
Et adducam pessimos de gentibus,
et possidebunt domos eorum:
et quiescere faciam superbiam potentium,
et possidebunt sanctuaria eorum.
25 ἐξιλασμὸς ἥξει καὶ ζητήσει εἰρήνην καὶ οὐκ ἔσται 26 οὐαὶ ἐπὶ οὐαὶ ἔσται καὶ ἀγγελία ἐ{P'} ἀγγελίαν ἔσται καὶ ζητηθήσεται ὅρασις ἐκ προφήτου καὶ νόμος ἀπολεῖται ἐξ ἱερέως καὶ βουλὴ ἐκ πρεσβυτέρων 27 ἄρχων ἐνδύσεται ἀφανισμόν καὶ αἱ χεῖρες τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς γῆς παραλυθήσονται κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῶν ποιήσω αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐν τοῖς κρίμασιν αὐτῶν ἐκδικήσω αὐτούς καὶ γνώσονται ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος 25 Days of despair, when they will look about them for a respite, and respite shall be none! 26 Fresh anxieties still, and fresh alarms; vainly they ask the prophet for revelation; tradition among the priests, counsel among the elders is none. 27 Mourns king, princes go covered with dismay, numb with despair the common folk; ill they shall fare, that ill did, cruelly be judged, that were cruel judges; they shall know what manner of God they serve. 25
Angustia superveniente, requirent pacem,
et non erit.
Conturbatio super conturbationem veniet,
et auditus super auditum:
et quærent visionem de propheta,
et lex peribit a sacerdote,
et consilium a senioribus.
Rex lugebit, et princeps induetur mœrore,
et manus populi terræ conturbabuntur:
secundum viam eorum faciam eis,
et secundum judicia eorum judicabo eos,
et scient quia ego Dominus.
