1 ἔπεσε Βηλ συνετρίβη Δαγων ἐγένετο τὰ γλυπτὰ αὐτῶν εἰς θηρία καὶ κτήνη αἴρετε αὐτὰ καταδεδεμένα ὡς φορτίον κοπιῶντι 2 καὶ πεινῶντι καὶ ἐκλελυμένῳ οὐκ ἰσχύοντι ἅμα οἳ οὐ δυνήσονται σωθῆναι ἀπὸ πολέμου αὐτοὶ δὲ αἰχμάλωτοι ἤχθησαν 3 ἀκούσατέ μου οἶκος τοῦ Ιακωβ καὶ πᾶν τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ Ισραηλ οἱ αἰρόμενοι ἐκ κοιλίας καὶ παιδευόμενοι ἐκ παιδίου 4 ἕως γήρους ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ ἕως ἂν καταγηράσητε ἐγώ εἰμι ἐγὼ ἀνέχομαι ὑμῶν ἐγὼ ἐποίησα καὶ ἐγὼ ἀνήσω ἐγὼ ἀναλήμψομαι καὶ σώσω ὑμᾶς 5 τίνι με ὡμοιώσατε ἴδετε τεχνάσασθε οἱ πλανώμενοι 6 οἱ συμβαλλόμενοι χρυσίον ἐκ μαρσιππίου καὶ ἀργύριον ἐν ζυγῷ στήσουσιν ἐν σταθμῷ καὶ μισθωσάμενοι χρυσοχόον ἐποίησαν χειροποίητα καὶ κύψαντες προσκυνοῦσιν αὐτοῖς 7 αἴρουσιν αὐτὸ ἐπὶ τῶν ὤμων καὶ πορεύονται ἐὰν δὲ θῶσιν αὐτό ἐπὶ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ μένει οὐ μὴ κινηθῇ καὶ ὃς ἂν βοήσῃ πρὸς αὐτόν οὐ μὴ εἰσακούσῃ ἀπὸ κακῶν οὐ μὴ σώσῃ αὐτόν 1 Here is Bel fallen in pieces, Nabo shattered;[1] their idols a gazing-stock for wild beasts and cattle! Heavy enough the burden you had to carry; 2 these must be left to moulder in a common ruin; comfort they had none for their toiling worshippers,[2] living souls that have gone off into captivity. 3 Listen to me, sons of Jacob, and all the rest of Israel’s race, you whose weight has ever been my burden, like an unborn child, a babe in the womb. 4 You grow old, but I am still the same; the grey hairs come, but I ever uphold you; I must carry you, I that created you, I must bear you away to safety. 5 What comparison, what match will you find for me, what likeness to resemble me? 6 Fools that fetch gold out of a sack, weigh silver in the balance, bid some craftsman make a god they should fall down and worship! 7 Shoulder-high it must be borne, set down on its pedestal; there it stands, powerless to move from its place, deaf to their cry, and in their need bringing no deliverance. 1

Confractus est Bel, contritus est Nabo;
facta sunt simulacra eorum bestiis et jumentis,
onera vestra gravi pondere
usque ad lassitudinem.
2
Contabuerunt, et contrita sunt simul;
non potuerunt salvare portantem,
et anima eorum in captivitatem ibit.
3
Audite me, domus Jacob,
et omne residuum domus Israël;
qui portamini a meo utero,
qui gestamini a mea vulva.
4
Usque ad senectam ego ipse,
et usque ad canos ego portabo;
ego feci, et ego feram;
ego portabo, et salvabo.
5
Cui assimilastis me, et adæquastis,
et comparastis me, et fecistis similem?
6
Qui confertis aurum de sacculo,
et argentum statera ponderatis,
conducentes aurificem ut faciat deum,
et procidunt, et adorant.
7
Portant illum in humeris gestantes,
et ponentes in loco suo,
et stabit, ac de loco suo non movebitur:
sed et cum clamaverint ad eum, non audiet;
de tribulatione non salvabit eos.
8 μνήσθητε ταῦτα καὶ στενάξατε μετανοήσατε οἱ πεπλανημένοι ἐπιστρέψατε τῇ καρδίᾳ 9 καὶ μνήσθητε τὰ πρότερα ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν ἐμοῦ 10 ἀναγγέλλων πρότερον τὰ ἔσχατα πρὶν αὐτὰ γενέσθαι καὶ ἅμα συνετελέσθη καὶ εἶπα πᾶσά μου ἡ βουλὴ στήσεται καὶ πάντα ὅσα βεβούλευμαι ποιήσω 11 καλῶν ἀ{P'} ἀνατολῶν πετεινὸν καὶ ἀπὸ γῆς πόρρωθεν περὶ ὧν βεβούλευμαι ἐλάλησα καὶ ἤγαγον ἔκτισα καὶ ἐποίησα ἤγαγον αὐτὸν καὶ εὐόδωσα τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ 12 ἀκούσατέ μου οἱ ἀπολωλεκότες τὴν καρδίαν οἱ μακρὰν ἀπὸ τῆς δικαιοσύνης 13 ἤγγισα τὴν δικαιοσύνην μου καὶ τὴν σωτηρίαν τὴν πα{R'} ἐμοῦ οὐ βραδυνῶ δέδωκα ἐν Σιων σωτηρίαν τῷ Ισραηλ εἰς δόξασμα 8 This, for your confusion, call to mind; think well on it, unbelieving hearts. 9 Remember the lesson of times long since, that I am God, and there is no other, none to rival me; 10 did I not tell you from the first the events of latter days, from the beginning what had not yet come to be? My purpose, I promised, should not fail, my whole will must needs be done. 11 See where I have summoned a bird of prey from the east, a man from a distant country, to do this will of mine! I, that spoke, will make my word good; I, that purposed it, my purpose will accomplish. 12 Redress far off? Nay, faithless hearts, listen to me; 13 here is redress I bring you, close at hand. Distance there is none to be travelled, nor lingers deliverance on the way. Delivered Sion’s mountain shall be, Jerusalem have sight of my glory. 8
Mementote istud, et confundamini;
redite, prævaricatores, ad cor.
9
Recordamini prioris sæculi,
quoniam ego sum Deus, et non est ultra deus,
nec est similis mei.
10
Annuntians ab exordio novissimum,
et ab initio quæ necdum facta sunt,
dicens: Consilium meum stabit,
et omnis voluntas mea fiet.
11
Vocans ab oriente avem,
et de terra longinqua virum voluntatis meæ:
et locutus sum, et adducam illud;
creavi et faciam illud.
12
Audite me, duro corde,
qui longe estis a justitia.
13
Prope feci justitiam meam, non elongabitur,
et salus mea non morabitur.
Dabo in Sion salutem,
et in Israël gloriam meam.
