1 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ ταῖς τρισὶν ἀσεβείαις Μωαβ καὶ ἐπὶ ταῖς τέσσαρσιν οὐκ ἀποστραφήσομαι αὐτόν ἀν{Q'} ὧν κατέκαυσαν τὰ ὀστᾶ βασιλέως τῆς Ιδουμαίας εἰς κονίαν 2 καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ πῦρ ἐπὶ Μωαβ καὶ καταφάγεται θεμέλια τῶν πόλεων αὐτῆς καὶ ἀποθανεῖται ἐν ἀδυναμίᾳ Μωαβ μετὰ κραυγῆς καὶ μετὰ φωνῆς σάλπιγγος 3 καὶ ἐξολεθρεύσω κριτὴν ἐξ αὐτῆς καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἄρχοντας αὐτῆς ἀποκτενῶ με{T'} αὐτοῦ λέγει κύριος 1 This, too: Thrice forfeit Moab, and forfeit once again, that burned the king of Edom’s bones to dust;[1] 2 fall fire on Moab, to burn down all the strongholds of Carioth! With tumult and the bray of trumpets, Moab shall go to his death; 3 ruler of theirs I will strike down in their midst, and all his vassals shall perish with him, the Lord says. 1

Hæc dicit Dominus:
Super tribus sceleribus Moab,
et super quatuor non convertam eum,
eo quod incenderit ossa regis Idumææ usque ad cinerem.
2
Et mittam ignem in Moab,
et devorabit ædes Carioth:
et morietur in sonitu Moab, in clangore tubæ.
3
Et disperdam judicem de medio ejus,
et omnes principes ejus interficiam cum eo,
dicit Dominus.
4 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ ταῖς τρισὶν ἀσεβείαις υἱῶν Ιουδα καὶ ἐπὶ ταῖς τέσσαρσιν οὐκ ἀποστραφήσομαι αὐτόν ἕνεκα τοῦ ἀπώσασθαι αὐτοὺς τὸν νόμον κυρίου καὶ τὰ προστάγματα αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐφυλάξαντο καὶ ἐπλάνησεν αὐτοὺς τὰ μάταια αὐτῶν ἃ ἐποίησαν οἷς ἐξηκολούθησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν 5 καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ πῦρ ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ καταφάγεται θεμέλια Ιερουσαλημ 4 This, too: Thrice forfeit Juda, and forfeit once again, that spurned the Lord’s law and left his bidding undone, so mazed were they by the false gods their fathers had gone a-courting; 5 fire fall on Juda, to burn down all the strongholds of Jerusalem! 4

Hæc dicit Dominus:
Super tribus sceleribus Juda,
et super quatuor non convertam eum,
eo quod abjecerit legem Domini
et mandata ejus non custodierit:
deceperant enim eos idola sua,
post quæ abierant patres eorum.
5
Et mittam ignem in Juda,
et devorabit ædes Jerusalem.
6 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ ταῖς τρισὶν ἀσεβείαις Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπὶ ταῖς τέσσαρσιν οὐκ ἀποστραφήσομαι αὐτόν ἀν{Q'} ὧν ἀπέδοντο ἀργυρίου δίκαιον καὶ πένητα ἕνεκεν ὑποδημάτων 7 τὰ πατοῦντα ἐπὶ τὸν χοῦν τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐκονδύλιζον εἰς κεφαλὰς πτωχῶν καὶ ὁδὸν ταπεινῶν ἐξέκλιναν καὶ υἱὸς καὶ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ εἰσεπορεύοντο πρὸς τὴν αὐτὴν παιδίσκην ὅπως βεβηλώσωσιν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ θεοῦ αὐτῶν 8 καὶ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτῶν δεσμεύοντες σχοινίοις παραπετάσματα ἐποίουν ἐχόμενα τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ οἶνον ἐκ συκοφαντιῶν ἔπινον ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ αὐτῶν 6 And this, too: What of Israel? Thrice forfeit Israel like the rest, and forfeit once again, that for a debt, though it were but the price of a pair of shoes, will make slaves of poor, honest folk. 7 Ground in the dust, the poor man’s rights, shouldered aside, the claim of the unbefriended! See where father and son, to my name’s dishonour, bed with one maid! 8 See where they lie feasting beside the altar, at the very shrine of their God, no cloak there but is some borrower’s pledge, no stoup of wine but is some debtor’s forfeit! 6
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Super tribus sceleribus Israël,
et super quatuor non convertam eum,
pro eo quod vendiderit pro argento justum,
et pauperem pro calceamentis.
7
Qui conterunt super pulverem terræ capita pauperum,
et viam humilium declinant:
et filius ac pater ejus ierunt ad puellam,
ut violarent nomen sanctum meum.
8
Et super vestimentis pignoratis accubuerunt juxta omne altare,
et vinum damnatorum bibebant in domo Dei sui.
9 ἐγὼ δὲ ἐξῆρα τὸν Αμορραῖον ἐκ προσώπου αὐτῶν οὗ ἦν καθὼς ὕψος κέδρου τὸ ὕψος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἰσχυρὸς ἦν ὡς δρῦς καὶ ἐξῆρα τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ ἐπάνωθεν καὶ τὰς ῥίζας αὐτοῦ ὑποκάτωθεν 10 καὶ ἐγὼ ἀνήγαγον ὑμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ περιήγαγον ὑμᾶς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη τοῦ κατακληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν τῶν Αμορραίων 11 καὶ ἔλαβον ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν ὑμῶν εἰς προφήτας καὶ ἐκ τῶν νεανίσκων ὑμῶν εἰς ἁγιασμόν μὴ οὐκ ἔστιν ταῦτα υἱοὶ Ισραηλ λέγει κύριος 12 καὶ ἐποτίζετε τοὺς ἡγιασμένους οἶνον καὶ τοῖς προφήταις ἐνετέλλεσθε λέγοντες οὐ μὴ προφητεύσητε 13 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ κυλίω ὑποκάτω ὑμῶν ὃν τρόπον κυλίεται ἡ ἅμαξα ἡ γέμουσα καλάμης 14 καὶ ἀπολεῖται φυγὴ ἐκ δρομέως καὶ ὁ κραταιὸς οὐ μὴ κρατήσῃ τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ μαχητὴς οὐ μὴ σώσῃ τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ 15 καὶ ὁ τοξότης οὐ μὴ ὑποστῇ καὶ ὁ ὀξὺς τοῖς ποσὶν αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ διασωθῇ οὐδὲ ὁ ἱππεὺς οὐ μὴ σώσῃ τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ 16 καὶ εὑρήσει τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ἐν δυναστείαις ὁ γυμνὸς διώξεται ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ λέγει κύριος 9 Was it for such men as these I exterminated the Amorrhites, a race tall as the cedar, hardy as the oak, root and fruit of them doomed to destruction? 10 These are the men I rescued from Egypt, guided them, all those forty years, through the wilderness, to make the domain of the Amorrhites theirs! 11 Tell me, men of Israel, the Lord says, what avails it that I should call sons of yours, from their boyhood’s days, to serve me as prophets and Nazirites? 12 Ever you tempt the Nazirites with wine, ever you forbid the prophet to raise his voice in prophecy. 13 Henceforth, you shall seek my help in vain; waggon-axle overladen with sheaves groans not so reluctant as I! 14 Speed shall be no profit to the speedy, strength to the strong; warrior shall not escape, 15 nor bowman stand firm; the fleet of foot, nay, the very horseman shall have no deliverance; 16 a day is coming, the Lord says, when tried valour shall be fain to throw arms away, and take flight. 9
Ego autem exterminavi Amorrhæum a facie eorum,
cujus altitudo, cedrorum altitudo ejus,
et fortis ipse quasi quercus;
et contrivi fructum ejus desuper,
et radices ejus subter.
10
Ego sum qui ascendere vos feci de terra Ægypti,
et duxi vos in deserto quadraginta annis,
ut possideretis terram Amorrhæi.
11
Et suscitavi de filiis vestris in prophetas,
et de juvenibus vestris nazaræos.
Numquid non ita est, filii Israël? dicit Dominus.
12
Et propinabitis nazaræis vinum,
et prophetis mandabitis, dicentes:
Ne prophetetis.
13
Ecce ego stridebo subter vos,
sicut stridet plaustrum onustum fœno.
14
Et peribit fuga a veloce,
et fortis non obtinebit virtutem suam,
et robustus non salvabit animam suam:
15
et tenens arcum non stabit,
et velox pedibus suis non salvabitur,
et ascensor equi non salvabit animam suam:
16
et robustus corde inter fortes nudus fugiet in illa die,
dicit Dominus.
