1 ἀκούσατε τὸν λόγον τοῦτον ὃν ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐ{F'} ὑμᾶς οἶκος Ισραηλ καὶ κατὰ πάσης φυλῆς ἧς ἀνήγαγον ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου λέγων 2 πλὴν ὑμᾶς ἔγνων ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν τῆς γῆς διὰ τοῦτο ἐκδικήσω ἐ{F'} ὑμᾶς πάσας τὰς ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν 1 This, then, is the Lord’s message to you, men of Israel, to the whole race I rescued from Egypt: 2 Nation is none I have claimed for my own, save you; and guilt of yours is none that shall go unpunished. 1

Audite verbum quod locutus est Dominus super vos, filii Israël,
super omnem cognationem quam eduxi de terra Ægypti, dicens:
2
Tantummodo vos cognovi ex omnibus cognationibus terræ;
idcirco visitabo super vos omnes iniquitates vestras.
3 εἰ πορεύσονται δύο ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ καθόλου ἐὰν μὴ γνωρίσωσιν ἑαυτούς 4 εἰ ἐρεύξεται λέων ἐκ τοῦ δρυμοῦ αὐτοῦ θήραν οὐκ ἔχων εἰ δώσει σκύμνος φωνὴν αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς μάνδρας αὐτοῦ καθόλου ἐὰν μὴ ἁρπάσῃ τι 5 εἰ πεσεῖται ὄρνεον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἄνευ ἰξευτοῦ εἰ σχασθήσεται παγὶς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἄνευ τοῦ συλλαβεῖν τι 6 εἰ φωνήσει σάλπιγξ ἐν πόλει καὶ λαὸς οὐ πτοηθήσεται εἰ ἔσται κακία ἐν πόλει ἣν κύριος οὐκ ἐποίησεν 7 διότι οὐ μὴ ποιήσῃ κύριος ὁ θεὸς πρᾶγμα ἐὰν μὴ ἀποκαλύψῃ παιδείαν αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ τοὺς προφήτας 8 λέων ἐρεύξεται καὶ τίς οὐ φοβηθήσεται κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἐλάλησεν καὶ τίς οὐ προφητεύσει 3 Tryst there must be, if friends will meet and journey together; 4 prey there must be, ere lion will roar in the forest, lion’s whelp growl in its lair; 5 bird is not pinned to the ground, without fowler to snare it, nor trap released without a catch made. 6 Sounds trumpet in the streets, men do well to be afraid; if peril is afoot in the city, doubt not it is of the Lord’s sending. 7 Never does he act, but his servants, the prophets, are in the secret. 8 Roars lion, who but will tremble? Comes the divine warning, who but will prophesy?[1] 3
Numquid ambulabunt duo pariter,
nisi convenerit eis?
4
numquid rugiet leo in saltu,
nisi habuerit prædam?
numquid dabit catulus leonis vocem de cubili suo,
nisi aliquid apprehenderit?
5
numquid cadet avis in laqueum terræ
absque aucupe?
numquid auferetur laqueus de terra
antequam quid ceperit?
6
si clanget tuba in civitate,
et populus non expavescet?
si erit malum in civitate,
quod Dominus non fecerit?
7
Quia non facit Dominus Deus verbum,
nisi revelaverit secretum suum ad servos suos prophetas.
8
Leo rugiet, quis non timebit?
Dominus Deus locutus est, quis non prophetabit?
9 ἀπαγγείλατε χώραις ἐν Ἀσσυρίοις καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς χώρας τῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ εἴπατε συνάχθητε ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος Σαμαρείας καὶ ἴδετε θαυμαστὰ πολλὰ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς καὶ τὴν καταδυναστείαν τὴν ἐν αὐτῇ 10 καὶ οὐκ ἔγνω ἃ ἔσται ἐναντίον αὐτῆς λέγει κύριος οἱ θησαυρίζοντες ἀδικίαν καὶ ταλαιπωρίαν ἐν ταῖς χώραις αὐτῶν 11 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός Τύρος κυκλόθεν ἡ γῆ σου ἐρημωθήσεται καὶ κατάξει ἐκ σοῦ ἰσχύν σου καὶ διαρπαγήσονται αἱ χῶραί σου 12 τάδε λέγει κύριος ὃν τρόπον ὅταν ἐκσπάσῃ ὁ ποιμὴν ἐκ στόματος τοῦ λέοντος δύο σκέλη ἢ λοβὸν ὠτίου οὕτως ἐκσπασθήσονται οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ κατέναντι φυλῆς καὶ ἐν Δαμασκῷ ἱερεῖς 13 ἀκούσατε καὶ ἐπιμαρτύρασθε τῷ οἴκῳ Ιακωβ λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ 14 διότι ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ὅταν ἐκδικῶ ἀσεβείας τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐ{P'} αὐτόν καὶ ἐκδικήσω ἐπὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια Βαιθηλ καὶ κατασκαφήσεται τὰ κέρατα τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ πεσοῦνται ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 15 συγχεῶ καὶ πατάξω τὸν οἶκον τὸν περίπτερον ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον τὸν θερινόν καὶ ἀπολοῦνται οἶκοι ἐλεφάντινοι καὶ προστεθήσονται οἶκοι ἕτεροι πολλοί λέγει κύριος 9 Raise a cry from the house-tops, there in Azotus, there in Egypt’s land: To the hills about Samaria betake you, and look deep into the heart of her, what turbulent doings are there, what wrongs men suffer! 10 In yonder palaces, the Lord says, that are store-houses of oppression and rapine, honest doing is all forgot. 11 This doom, then, the Lord God utters: Distress and siege for such a land as this! All thy fastnesses shall be dismantled, all thy palaces spoiled. 12 Wilt thou have lion disgorge his prey? Pleased enough the shepherd, if a pair of legs he recover, a mangled ear! They shall fare no better, the Israelites that lie on a corner of the mattress at Samaria, and have their bed at Damascus.[2] 13 A message for you, says the Lord, the God of hosts, a warning for the sons of Jacob! 14 I will have a reckoning with the rebellions of Israel, a reckoning with those altars of theirs at Bethel, that shall have the horns of them cut off and hurled to the ground; 15 on summer dwelling of yours and winter dwelling my hand shall fall, houses of ivory and houses of the common folk; all shall lie in ruin, the Lord says. 9
Auditum facite in ædibus Azoti,
et in ædibus terræ Ægypti,
et dicite: Congregamini super montes Samariæ,
et videte insanias multas in medio ejus,
et calumniam patientes in penetralibus ejus.
10
Et nescierunt facere rectum, dicit Dominus,
thesaurizantes iniquitatem et rapinas in ædibus suis.
11
Propterea hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Tribulabitur et circuietur terra:
et detrahetur ex te fortitudo tua,
et diripientur ædes tuæ.
12
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Quomodo si eruat pastor de ore leonis
duo crura, aut extremum auriculæ,
sic eruentur filii Israël, qui habitant in Samaria
in plaga lectuli, et in Damasci grabato.
13
Audite, et contestamini in domo Jacob,
dicit Dominus Deus exercituum;
14
quia in die cum visitare cœpero prævaricationes Israël,
super eum visitabo, et super altaria Bethel;
et amputabuntur cornua altaris, et cadent in terram.
15
Et percutiam domum hiemalem cum domo æstiva,
et peribunt domus eburneæ,
et dissipabuntur ædes multæ,
dicit Dominus.
