1 τότε εἶπεν Σαλωμων κύριος εἶπεν τοῦ κατασκηνῶσαι ἐν γνόφῳ 2 καὶ ἐγὼ ᾠκοδόμηκα οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί σου ἅγιόν σοι καὶ ἕτοιμον τοῦ κατασκηνῶσαι εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας 3 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ εὐλόγησεν τὴν πᾶσαν ἐκκλησίαν Ισραηλ καὶ πᾶσα ἐκκλησία Ισραηλ παρειστήκει 4 καὶ εἶπεν εὐλογητὸς κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ὃς ἐλάλησεν ἐν στόματι αὐτοῦ πρὸς Δαυιδ τὸν πατέρα μου καὶ ἐν χερσὶν αὐτοῦ ἐπλήρωσεν λέγων 5 ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἀνήγαγον τὸν λαόν μου ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου οὐκ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν πόλει ἀπὸ πασῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τοῦ εἶναι ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ καὶ οὐκ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν ἀνδρὶ τοῦ εἶναι εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου Ισραηλ 6 καὶ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν Ιερουσαλημ γενέσθαι τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν Δαυιδ ὥστε εἶναι ἐπάνω τοῦ λαοῦ μου Ισραηλ 7 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ καρδίαν Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός μου τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ 8 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Δαυιδ πατέρα μου διότι ἐγένετο ἐπὶ καρδίαν σου τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου καλῶς ἐποίησας ὅτι ἐγένετο ἐπὶ καρδίαν σου 9 πλὴν σὺ οὐκ οἰκοδομήσεις τὸν οἶκον ὅτι ὁ υἱός σου ὃς ἐξελεύσεται ἐκ τῆς ὀσφύος σου οὗτος οἰκοδομήσει τὸν οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου 10 καὶ ἀνέστησεν κύριος τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ ὃν ἐλάλησεν καὶ ἐγενήθην ἀντὶ Δαυιδ πατρός μου καὶ ἐκάθισα ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον Ισραηλ καθὼς ἐλάλησεν κύριος καὶ ᾠκοδόμησα τὸν οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ 11 καὶ ἔθηκα ἐκεῖ τὴν κιβωτόν ἐν ᾗ ἐκεῖ διαθήκη κυρίου ἣν διέθετο τῷ Ισραηλ 1 Where the cloud is, cried Solomon, the Lord has promised to be. 2 It is true, then, the house I have built in his honour is to be, for ever, his dwelling-place. 3 With that, the king turned to bless the whole assembly; all Israel, that stood waiting there. 4 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, he said, who has fulfilled in act the promise he made to my father David. 5 So many years since he had rescued his people from Egypt, and never a city among all the tribes of Israel had he chosen to be the site of his dwelling-place or the shrine of his name, never a prince had he appointed over his people of Israel, 6 till at last he chose Jerusalem, to enshrine his name there, and David for his people’s ruler. 7 And when he, my father, would have built a house in honour of the Lord God of Israel, 8 the Lord told him that he had done well to conceive such a purpose in his heart; 9 But it is not for thee, he said, to build me a house. A house shall be built in my honour, but by thy son, the heir of thy body. 10 That promise of his the Lord has fulfilled; I have come forward in my father David’s place, sit upon the throne of Israel, as the Lord promised I should; it has been mine to build a house to the honour of the Lord, Israel’s God, 11 and to find a home for this ark, witness of the covenant he made with Israel’s sons. 1 Tunc Salomon ait: Dominus pollicitus est ut habitaret in caligine: 2 ego autem ædificavi domum nomini ejus, ut habitaret ibi in perpetuum. 3 Et convertit rex faciem suam, et benedixit universæ multitudini Israël (nam omnis turba stabat intenta), et ait: 4 Benedictus Dominus Deus Israël, qui quod locutus est David patri meo, opere complevit, dicens: 5 A die qua eduxi populum meum de terra Ægypti, non elegi civitatem de cunctis tribubus Israël ut ædificaretur in ea domus nomini meo, neque elegi quemquam alium virum ut esset dux in populo Israël: 6 sed elegi Jerusalem ut sit nomen meum in ea, et elegi David ut constituerem eum super populum meum Israël. 7 Cumque fuisset voluntatis David patris mei ut ædificaret domum nomini Domini Dei Israël, 8 dixit Dominus ad eum: Quia hæc fuit voluntas tua, ut ædificares domum nomini meo, bene quidem fecisti hujuscemodi habere voluntatem: 9 sed non tu ædificabis domum: verum filius tuus, qui egredietur de lumbis tuis, ipse ædificabit domum nomini meo. 10 Complevit ergo Dominus sermonem suum quem locutus fuerat: et ego surrexi pro David patre meo, et sedi super thronum Israël, sicut locutus est Dominus: et ædificavi domum nomini Domini Dei Israël. 11 Et posui in ea arcam in qua est pactum Domini quod pepigit cum filiis Israël.
12 καὶ ἔστη κατέναντι τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κυρίου ἔναντι πάσης ἐκκλησίας Ισραηλ καὶ διεπέτασεν τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ 13 ὅτι ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων βάσιν χαλκῆν καὶ ἔθηκεν αὐτὴν ἐν μέσῳ τῆς αὐλῆς τοῦ ἱεροῦ πέντε πηχῶν τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς καὶ πέντε πήχεων τὸ εὖρος αὐτῆς καὶ τριῶν πήχεων τὸ ὕψος αὐτῆς καὶ ἔστη ἐ{P'} αὐτῆς καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ τὰ γόνατα ἔναντι πάσης ἐκκλησίας Ισραηλ καὶ διεπέτασεν τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν 14 καὶ εἶπεν κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ οὐκ ἔστιν ὅμοιός σοι θεὸς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς φυλάσσων τὴν διαθήκην καὶ τὸ ἔλεος τοῖς παισίν σου τοῖς πορευομένοις ἐναντίον σου ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ 15 ἃ ἐφύλαξας τῷ παιδί σου Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί μου ἃ ἐλάλησας αὐτῷ λέγων καὶ ἐλάλησας ἐν στόματί σου καὶ ἐν χερσίν σου ἐπλήρωσας ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη 16 καὶ νῦν κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ φύλαξον τῷ παιδί σου τῷ Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί μου ἃ ἐλάλησας αὐτῷ λέγων οὐκ ἐκλείψει σοι ἀνὴρ ἀπὸ προσώπου μου καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Ισραηλ πλὴν ἐὰν φυλάξωσιν οἱ υἱοί σου τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτῶν τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ἐν τῷ νόμῳ μου ὡς ἐπορεύθης ἐναντίον μου 17 καὶ νῦν κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ πιστωθήτω δὴ τὸ ῥῆμά σου ὃ ἐλάλησας τῷ παιδί σου τῷ Δαυιδ 12 Then Solomon stood before the Lord’s altar in full view of all Israel, and stretched out his hands. 13 In the midst of the great court he had bidden them set down a block of bronze, five cubits across either way and three feet in height; on this he mounted, and there, in the sight of all Israel, kneeling down with his hands lifted up towards heaven, he prayed. 14 Lord God of Israel, he said, thou reignest without rival in heaven and earth, making good thy merciful promises to all who follow thee with undivided hearts. 15 And thou hast not disappointed thy servant, my father David; thy act matches thy word; this day, who doubts it? 16 Do not forget, Lord God of Israel, that other promise of thine to David, that he should always have an heir to sit on the throne of Israel, would but his sons guide their steps, like David himself, as in thy presence; 17 let that promise too, Lord God of Israel, be ratified! 12 Stetit ergo coram altari Domini ex adverso universæ multitudinis Israël, et extendit manus suas. 13 Siquidem fecerat Salomon basim æneam, et posuerat eam in medio basilicæ, habentem quinque cubitos longitudinis, et quinque cubitos latitudinis, et tres cubitos altitudinis: stetitque super eam, et deinceps flexis genibus contra universam multitudinem Israël, et palmis in cælum levatis, 14 ait: Domine Deus Israël, non est similis tui deus in cælo et in terra: qui custodis pactum et misericordiam cum servis tuis qui ambulant coram te in toto corde suo: 15 qui præstitisti servo tuo David patri meo quæcumque locutus fueras ei: et quæ ore promiseras, opere complesti, sicut et præsens tempus probat. 16 Nunc ergo Domine Deus Israël, imple servo tuo patri meo David quæcumque locutus es, dicens: Non deficiet ex te vir coram me, qui sedeat super thronum Israël: ita tamen si custodierint filii tui vias suas, et ambulaverint in lege mea, sicut et tu ambulasti coram me. 17 Et nunc Domine Deus Israël, firmetur sermo tuus quem locutus es servo tuo David.
18 ὅτι εἰ ἀληθῶς κατοικήσει θεὸς μετὰ ἀνθρώπων ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εἰ ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ὁ οὐρανὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐκ ἀρκέσουσίν σοι καὶ τίς ὁ οἶκος οὗτος ὃν ᾠκοδόμησα 19 καὶ ἐπιβλέψῃ ἐπὶ τὴν προσευχὴν παιδός σου καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν δέησίν μου κύριε ὁ θεός τοῦ ἐπακοῦσαι τῆς δεήσεως καὶ τῆς προσευχῆς ἧς ὁ παῖς σου προσεύχεται ἐναντίον σου σήμερον 20 τοῦ εἶναι ὀφθαλμούς σου ἀνεῳγμένους ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτός εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον ὃν εἶπας ἐπικληθῆναι τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐκεῖ τοῦ ἀκοῦσαι τῆς προσευχῆς ἧς ὁ παῖς σου προσεύχεται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον 21 καὶ ἀκούσῃ τῆς δεήσεως τοῦ παιδός σου καὶ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ ἃ ἂν προσεύξωνται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τῆς κατοικήσεώς σου ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἀκούσῃ καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ 18 Folly it were to think that God has a dwelling-place on earth. If the very heavens, and the heaven that is above the heavens, cannot contain thee, what welcome can it offer thee, this house which I have built? 19 Yet it has not been built in vain, O Lord my God, if thou wilt give heed to thy servant’s prayer, that sues for thy favour, listen to the cry of entreaty he makes before thee. 20 This I ask, that thy eyes should be ever watching, night and day, over this temple of thine, the chosen sanctuary of thy name; 21 be this the meeting-place where thou wilt listen to thy servant’s prayer. Whatever requests I or my people Israel make shall find audience here; thou wilt listen from thy dwelling-place in heaven, and listening, wilt forgive. 18 Ergone credibile est ut habitet Deus cum hominibus super terram? si cælum et cæli cælorum non te capiunt, quanto magis domus ista quam ædificavi? 19 Sed ad hoc tantum facta est, ut respicias orationem servi tui, et obsecrationem ejus, Domine Deus meus, et audias preces quas fundit famulus tuus coram te: 20 ut aperias oculos tuos super domum istam diebus ac noctibus, super locum in quo pollicitus es ut invocaretur nomen tuum, 21 et exaudires orationem quam servus tuus orat in eo: et exaudias preces famuli tui, et populi tui Israël. Quicumque oraverit in loco isto, exaudi de habitaculo tuo, id est, de cælis, et propitiare.
22 ἐὰν ἁμάρτῃ ἀνὴρ τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ λάβῃ ἐ{P'} αὐτὸν ἀρὰν τοῦ ἀρᾶσθαι αὐτόν καὶ ἔλθῃ καὶ ἀράσηται κατέναντι τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ 23 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ποιήσεις καὶ κρινεῖς τοὺς δούλους σου τοῦ ἀποδοῦναι τῷ ἀνόμῳ καὶ ἀποδοῦναι ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ τοῦ δικαιῶσαι δίκαιον τοῦ ἀποδοῦναι αὐτῷ κατὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην αὐτοῦ 22 Has a man wronged his neighbour, and is he ready to clear himself of the charge by an oath? Then, if he comes to this house of thine, to swear the lie before thy altar, 23 thou, in heaven, wilt be listening, and wilt do justice between thy servants, passing sentence upon the guilty and avenging the wrong, acquitting the innocent and granting him due redress. 22 Si peccaverit quispiam in proximum suum, et jurare contra eum paratus venerit, seque maledicto constrinxerit coram altari in domo ista: 23 tu audies de cælo, et facies judicium servorum tuorum, ita ut reddas iniquo viam suam in caput proprium, et ulciscaris justum, retribuens ei secundum justitiam suam.
24 καὶ ἐὰν θραυσθῇ ὁ λαός σου Ισραηλ κατέναντι τοῦ ἐχθροῦ ἐὰν ἁμάρτωσίν σοι καὶ ἐπιστρέψωσιν καὶ ἐξομολογήσωνται τῷ ὀνόματί σου καὶ προσεύξωνται καὶ δεηθῶσιν ἐναντίον σου ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ 25 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ καὶ ἀποστρέψεις αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ἔδωκας αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν 24 Are thy people of Israel condemned to flee before their enemies, in punishment of the sins they will surely commit? Then, if they come back to thee in repentance, call on thy name and plead with thee in this temple of thine, 25 thou wilt be listening in heaven; forgive the sins of thy people Israel, and restore them to the land which thou gavest to their fathers. 24 Si superatus fuerit populus tuus Israël ab inimicis (peccabunt enim tibi), et conversi egerint pœnitentiam, et obsecraverint nomen tuum, et fuerint deprecati in loco isto, 25 tu exaudies de cælo: et propitiare peccato populi tui Israël, et reduc eos in terram quam dedisti eis, et patribus eorum.
26 ἐν τῷ συσχεθῆναι τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ μὴ γενέσθαι ὑετόν ὅτι ἁμαρτήσονταί σοι καὶ προσεύξονται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ αἰνέσουσιν τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν ἐπιστρέψουσιν ὅτι ταπεινώσεις αὐτούς 27 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις τῶν παίδων σου καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ ὅτι δηλώσεις αὐτοῖς τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν ἀγαθήν ἐν ᾗ πορεύσονται ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ δώσεις ὑετὸν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν σου ἣν ἔδωκας τῷ λαῷ σου εἰς κληρονομίαν 26 Does the sky bar its gates against them, and give no rain, in punishment for their sins? Then, if they come here acknowledging thee with prayer and repentance, and turn away, in their sore need, from their sins, 27 do thou, in heaven, listen, and grant thy servants the people of Israel forgiveness; teach them to guide their steps aright, and send rain on the land thou hast given them for their home. 26 Si clauso cælo pluvia non fluxerit propter peccata populi, et deprecati te fuerint in loco isto, et confessi nomini tuo, et conversi a peccatis suis, cum eos afflixeris, 27 exaudi de cælo, Domine, et dimitte peccata servis tuis et populi tui Israël, et doce eos viam bonam, per quam ingrediantur: et da pluviam terræ quam dedisti populo tuo ad possidendum.
28 λιμὸς ἐὰν γένηται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς θάνατος ἐὰν γένηται ἀνεμοφθορία καὶ ἴκτερος ἀκρὶς καὶ βροῦχος ἐὰν γένηται ἐὰν θλίψῃ αὐτὸν ὁ ἐχθρὸς κατέναντι τῶν πόλεων αὐτῶν κατὰ πᾶσαν πληγὴν καὶ πᾶν πόνον 29 καὶ πᾶσα προσευχὴ καὶ πᾶσα δέησις ἣ ἐὰν γένηται παντὶ ἀνθρώπῳ καὶ παντὶ λαῷ σου Ισραηλ ἐὰν γνῷ ἄνθρωπος τὴν ἁφὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν μαλακίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ διαπετάσῃ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον 30 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου σου καὶ ἱλάσῃ καὶ δώσεις ἀνδρὶ κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ ὡς ἂν γνῷς τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ὅτι μόνος γινώσκεις τὴν καρδίαν υἱῶν ἀνθρώπων 31 ὅπως φοβῶνται τὰς ὁδούς σου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἃς αὐτοὶ ζῶσιν ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκας τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν 28 Is there famine in the land, or pestilence, blight or mildew, plague of locust or caterpillar? Does some enemy press hard on it, besieging its city gates? Whatever be the plague or the sickness that weighs us down, 29 if any one among thy people, accepting that plague or sickness as his own, makes prayer to thee, stretching out his hands in this temple, 30 thou, in heaven, thy high dwelling-place, wilt be listening; do thou relent, and send to each man the lot his deeds deserve, thou, who alone readest the hearts of human kind. 31 So will men learn to fear thee and to follow in thy paths, long as they live to enjoy the land thou gavest to our fathers. 28 Fames si orta fuerit in terra, et pestilentia, ærugo, et aurugo, et locusta, et bruchus: et hostes, vastatis regionibus, portas obsederint civitatis, omnisque plaga et infirmitas presserit: 29 si quis de populo tuo Israël fuerit deprecatus, cognoscens plagam et infirmitatem suam, et expanderit manus suas in domo hac, 30 tu exaudies de cælo, de sublimi scilicet habitaculo tuo: et propitiare, et redde unicuique secundum vias suas, quas nosti eum habere in corde suo (tu enim solus nosti corda filiorum hominum): 31 ut timeant te, et ambulent in viis tuis cunctis diebus quibus vivunt super faciem terræ quam dedisti patribus nostris.
32 καὶ πᾶς ἀλλότριος ὃς οὐκ ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ ἐστὶν αὐτὸς καὶ ἔλθῃ ἐκ γῆς μακρόθεν διὰ τὸ ὄνομά σου τὸ μέγα καὶ τὴν χεῖρά σου τὴν κραταιὰν καὶ τὸν βραχίονά σου τὸν ὑψηλὸν καὶ ἔλθωσιν καὶ προσεύξωνται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον 33 καὶ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου σου καὶ ποιήσεις κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐὰν ἐπικαλέσηταί σε ὁ ἀλλότριος ὅπως γνῶσιν πάντες οἱ λαοὶ τῆς γῆς τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ τοῦ φοβεῖσθαί σε ὡς ὁ λαός σου Ισραηλ καὶ τοῦ γνῶναι ὅτι ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ὃν ᾠκοδόμησα 32 Nay, is it some stranger, with no part in thy people Israel, who yet comes here from distant lands, for love of thy renown, for the constraining force thy power displays, and worships thee in this temple? 33 Still, in heaven, thy secure dwelling-place, thou wilt grant the alien’s prayer. So shall all the world come to hear of thy renown, and fear thee no less than Israel itself; shall doubt no more that this temple I have built claims thy protection. 32 Externum quoque, qui non est de populo tuo Israël, si venerit de terra longinqua propter nomen tuum magnum, et propter manum tuam robustam, et brachium tuum extentum, et adoraverit in loco isto, 33 tu exaudies de cælo firmissimo habitaculo tuo, et facies cuncta pro quibus invocaverit te ille peregrinus: ut sciant omnes populi terræ nomen tuum, et timeant te sicut populus tuus Israël, et cognoscant quia nomen tuum invocatum est super domum hanc quam ædificavi.
34 ἐὰν δὲ ἐξέλθῃ ὁ λαός σου εἰς πόλεμον ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐχθροὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν ὁδῷ ᾗ ἀποστελεῖς αὐτούς καὶ προσεύξωνται πρὸς σὲ κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πόλεως ταύτης ἣν ἐξελέξω ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ οἴκου οὗ ᾠκοδόμησα τῷ ὀνόματί σου 35 καὶ ἀκούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῆς δεήσεως αὐτῶν καὶ τῆς προσευχῆς αὐτῶν καὶ ποιήσεις τὸ δικαίωμα αὐτῶν 34 Sometimes thy people will go out to levy war upon their enemies, here and there at thy bidding. Then, as they fall to prayer, let them but turn in the direction of the city thou hast chosen, the temple I have built there in thy honour, 35 and thou, in heaven, wilt listen to their prayer for aid, wilt maintain their cause. 34 Si egressus fuerit populus tuus ad bellum contra adversarios suos per viam in qua miseris eos, adorabunt te contra viam in qua civitas hæc est, quam elegisti, et domus quam ædificavi nomini tuo, 35 tu exaudies de cælo preces eorum, et obsecrationem: et ulciscaris.
36 ὅτι ἁμαρτήσονταί σοι ὅτι οὐκ ἔσται ἄνθρωπος ὃς οὐχ ἁμαρτήσεται καὶ πατάξεις αὐτοὺς καὶ παραδώσεις αὐτοὺς κατὰ πρόσωπον ἐχθρῶν καὶ αἰχμαλωτεύσουσιν οἱ αἰχμαλωτεύοντες αὐτοὺς εἰς γῆν ἐχθρῶν εἰς γῆν μακρὰν ἢ ἐγγὺς 37 καὶ ἐπιστρέψωσιν καρδίαν αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν οὗ μετήχθησαν ἐκεῖ καί γε ἐπιστρέψωσιν καὶ δεηθῶσίν σου ἐν τῇ αἰχμαλωσίᾳ αὐτῶν λέγοντες ἡμάρτομεν ἠδικήσαμεν ἠνομήσαμεν 38 καὶ ἐπιστρέψωσιν πρὸς σὲ ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ ψυχῇ αὐτῶν ἐν γῇ αἰχμαλωτευσάντων αὐτοὺς καὶ προσεύξωνται ὁδὸν γῆς αὐτῶν ἧς ἔδωκας τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν καὶ τῆς πόλεως ἧς ἐξελέξω καὶ τοῦ οἴκου οὗ ᾠκοδόμησα τῷ ὀνόματί σου 39 καὶ ἀκούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου σου τῆς προσευχῆς αὐτῶν καὶ τῆς δεήσεως αὐτῶν καὶ ποιήσεις κρίματα καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ τῷ λαῷ τῷ ἁμαρτόντι σοι 36 But what, if they have offended thee by their faults? No man but is guilty of some fault; it may be thou wilt give them up, in thy anger, into the power of their enemies, and as prisoners they will be banished into countries far away, or alien countries within sight of home. 37 But ere long, in their banishment, they will come back to thee with repentant hearts, crying out to thee, poor exiles, We are sinners, we have done amiss, rebels all! 38 In that alien land, the land of their captivity, they will turn back to thee with all the purpose of their heart and soul. Then, if they turn in prayer towards the land thou gavest their fathers, the city of thy choice, and the temple I have built in thy honour, 39 thou, in heaven, on thy peaceful throne, wilt once more listen to their prayer for aid, wilt maintain their cause still. And thou wilt relent towards thy people, though they have sinned against thee.[1] 36 Si autem peccaverint tibi (neque enim est homo qui non peccet), et iratus fueris eis, et tradideris hostibus, et captivos duxerint eos in terram longinquam, vel certe quæ juxta est, 37 et conversi in corde suo in terra ad quam captivi ducti fuerant, egerint pœnitentiam, et deprecati te fuerint in terra captivitatis suæ, dicentes: Peccavimus: inique fecimus, injuste egimus: 38 et reversi fuerint ad te in toto corde suo, et in tota anima sua, in terra captivitatis suæ ad quam ducti sunt, adorabunt te contra viam terræ suæ, quam dedisti patribus eorum, et urbis quam elegisti, et domus quam ædificavi nomini tuo: 39 tu exaudies de cælo, hoc est, de firmo habitaculo tuo, preces eorum: et facias judicium, et dimittas populo tuo, quamvis peccatori:
40 νῦν κύριε ἔστωσαν δὴ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ἀνεῳγμένοι καὶ τὰ ὦτά σου ἐπήκοα εἰς τὴν δέησιν τοῦ τόπου τούτου 41 καὶ νῦν ἀνάστηθι κύριε ὁ θεός εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσίν σου σὺ καὶ ἡ κιβωτὸς τῆς ἰσχύος σου οἱ ἱερεῖς σου κύριε ὁ θεός ἐνδύσαιντο σωτηρίαν καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου εὐφρανθήτωσαν ἐν ἀγαθοῖς 42 κύριε ὁ θεός μὴ ἀποστρέψῃς τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ χριστοῦ σου μνήσθητι τὰ ἐλέη Δαυιδ τοῦ δούλου σου 40 My God! Ever be thy eyes open, ever thy ears attentive to the prayer that is offered here. 41 Up, Lord, take possession of this, thy home, with the ark that makes known thy power; Lord God, let thy priests go clad in triumph, thy faithful people rejoice in thy bounty. 42 Lord God, do not reject my prayer, the king thou hast anointed; bethink thee of the loving designs thou hadst for thy servant David before him.[2] 40 tu es enim Deus meus: aperiantur, quæso, oculi tui, et aures tuæ intentæ sint ad orationem quæ fit in loco isto. 41 Nunc igitur consurge, Domine Deus, in requiem tuam, tu et arca fortitudinis tuæ: sacerdotes tui, Domine Deus, induantur salutem, et sancti tui lætentur in bonis. 42 Domine Deus, ne averteris faciem christi tui: memento misericordiarum David servi tui.
