1 ἴδετε ὡς ὁ δίκαιος ἀπώλετο καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐκδέχεται τῇ καρδίᾳ καὶ ἄνδρες δίκαιοι αἴρονται καὶ οὐδεὶς κατανοεῖ ἀπὸ γὰρ προσώπου ἀδικίας ἦρται ὁ δίκαιος 2 ἔσται ἐν εἰρήνῃ ἡ ταφὴ αὐτοῦ ἦρται ἐκ τοῦ μέσου 1 Alas, that none takes warning! See how good men die, how the friends of God are borne away from us; and none has the wit to see trouble is coming, and the good must be spared the sight of it![1] 2 Peace be his lot, easy let him rest, that followed ever the straight path. 1

Justus perit,
et non est qui recogitet in corde suo;
et viri misericordiæ colliguntur,
quia non est qui intelligat:
a facie enim malitiæ collectus est justus.
2
Veniat pax;
requiescat in cubili suo
qui ambulavit in directione sua.
3 ὑμεῖς δὲ προσαγάγετε ὧδε υἱοὶ ἄνομοι σπέρμα μοιχῶν καὶ πόρνης 4 ἐν τίνι ἐνετρυφήσατε καὶ ἐπὶ τίνα ἠνοίξατε τὸ στόμα ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τίνα ἐχαλάσατε τὴν γλῶσσαν ὑμῶν οὐχ ὑμεῖς ἐστε τέκνα ἀπωλείας σπέρμα ἄνομον 5 οἱ παρακαλοῦντες ἐπὶ τὰ εἴδωλα ὑπὸ δένδρα δασέα σφάζοντες τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν ἐν ταῖς φάραγξιν ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν πετρῶν 3 But you, come and answer for yourselves, brood of the sorceress, children of the adulterer and the harlot! 4 Over whom would you make merry, with open mouth and hanging tongue? What are you but the sons of shame, a bastard race? 5 You, that dally with idols under the first spreading tree, that sacrifice little children in the rock-caves among the glens? 3
Vos autem accedite huc,
filii auguratricis,
semen adulteri et fornicariæ.
4
Super quem lusistis?
super quem dilatastis os,
et ejecistis linguam?
Numquid non vos filii scelesti,
semen mendax,
5
qui consolamini in diis
subter omne lignum frondosum,
immolantes parvulos in torrentibus,
subter eminentes petras?
6 ἐκείνη σου ἡ μερίς οὗτός σου ὁ κλῆρος κἀκείνοις ἐξέχεας σπονδὰς κἀκείνοις ἀνήνεγκας θυσίας ἐπὶ τούτοις οὖν οὐκ ὀργισθήσομαι 7 ἐ{P'} ὄρος ὑψηλὸν καὶ μετέωρον ἐκεῖ σου ἡ κοίτη κἀκεῖ ἀνεβίβασας θυσίας 8 καὶ ὀπίσω τῶν σταθμῶν τῆς θύρας σου ἔθηκας μνημόσυνά σου ᾤου ὅτι ἐὰν ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ ἀποστῇς πλεῖόν τι ἕξεις ἠγάπησας τοὺς κοιμωμένους μετὰ σοῦ 9 καὶ ἐπλήθυνας τὴν πορνείαν σου με{T'} αὐτῶν καὶ πολλοὺς ἐποίησας τοὺς μακρὰν ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἀπέστειλας πρέσβεις ὑπὲρ τὰ ὅριά σου καὶ ἀπέστρεψας καὶ ἐταπεινώθης ἕως ᾅδου 10 ταῖς πολυοδίαις σου ἐκοπίασας καὶ οὐκ εἶπας παύσομαι ἐνισχύουσα ὅτι ἔπραξας ταῦτα διὰ τοῦτο οὐ κατεδεήθης μου 11 σύ τίνα εὐλαβηθεῖσα ἐφοβήθης καὶ ἐψεύσω με καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθης μου οὐδὲ ἔλαβές με εἰς τὴν διάνοιαν οὐδὲ εἰς τὴν καρδίαν σου κἀγώ σε ἰδὼν παρορῶ καὶ ἐμὲ οὐκ ἐφοβήθης 12 κἀγὼ ἀπαγγελῶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην μου καὶ τὰ κακά σου ἃ οὐκ ὠφελήσουσίν σε 13 ὅταν ἀναβοήσῃς ἐξελέσθωσάν σε ἐν τῇ θλίψει σου τούτους γὰρ πάντας ἄνεμος λήμψεται καὶ ἀποίσει καταιγίς οἱ δὲ ἀντεχόμενοί μου κτήσονται γῆν καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου 14 καὶ ἐροῦσιν καθαρίσατε ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ ὁδοὺς καὶ ἄρατε σκῶλα ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ τοῦ λαοῦ μου 6 Where the valleys part,[2] there is thy part and lot; to those thou wilt pour out libations, wilt offer sacrifice; and must I look on unmoved? 7 Thou hast set down thy bed on the peak of a high mountain; there thou hast gone up to offer victims. 8 Keepsake of mine must be put behind the door, where the posts should hide it, now thou wouldst strip thee naked and let in a gallant in my place, make free with my marriage-bed! With such as these thou didst exchange vows, greedily thou didst buy their good will. 9 A king’s favour to win,[3] with ointments thou wouldst cover thee, wouldst spare no kind of perfume; on a far errand thy envoys went out, and ever thy pride was humbled, low as hell itself. 10 So wearied with long journeying, and never didst thou cry, Enough; still obstinate, confess thy need thou wouldst not. 11 Alas, what anxious fears were these, that to my service made thee false, of me no memory left thee, no thought? And all because I nothing said, made as if I nothing saw, till at last thou hadst forgotten me! 12 Yet, wouldst thou have right, it is I that must declare it; thy own striving is all in vain. 13 Let them deliver thee, if they can, at thy summons, these new allies thou hast made! See how they are carried away on the wind, how a breath will scatter them! His the prize, that in me has confidence; on my holy mountain he shall find a resting-place. 14 Hark, how the cry goes up, A road, there, a road; let them have free passage! These are my people; clear of every hindrance be their path! 6
In partibus torrentis pars tua;
hæc est sors tua:
et ipsis effudisti libamen,
obtulisti sacrificium.
Numquid super his non indignabor?
7
Super montem excelsum et sublimem
posuisti cubile tuum,
et illuc ascendisti
ut immolares hostias.
8
Et post ostium, et retro postem,
posuisti memoriale tuum.
Quia juxta me discooperuisti,
et suscepisti adulterum, dilatasti cubile tuum,
et pepigisti cum eis fœdus;
dilexisti stratum eorum
manu aperta.
9
Et ornasti te regi unguento,
et multiplicasti pigmenta tua.
Misisti legatos tuos procul,
et humiliata es usque ad inferos.
10
In multitudine viæ tuæ laborasti;
non dixisti: Quiescam.
Vitam manus tuæ invenisti;
propterea non rogasti.
11
Pro quo sollicita timuisti,
quia mentita es,
et mei non es recordata,
neque cogitasti in corde tuo?
Quia ego tacens et quasi non videns,
et mei oblita es.
12
Ego annuntiabo justitiam tuam,
et opera tua non proderunt tibi.
13
Cum clamaveris, liberent te congregati tui,
et omnes eos auferet ventus,
tollet aura.


Qui autem fiduciam habet mei, hæreditabit terram,
et possidebit montem sanctum meum.
14
Et dicam: Viam facite, præbete iter; declinate de semita,
auferte offendicula de via populi mei.
15 τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ ὕψιστος ὁ ἐν ὑψηλοῖς κατοικῶν τὸν αἰῶνα ἅγιος ἐν ἁγίοις ὄνομα αὐτῷ κύριος ὕψιστος ἐν ἁγίοις ἀναπαυόμενος καὶ ὀλιγοψύχοις διδοὺς μακροθυμίαν καὶ διδοὺς ζωὴν τοῖς συντετριμμένοις τὴν καρδίαν 16 οὐκ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἐκδικήσω ὑμᾶς οὐδὲ διὰ παντὸς ὀργισθήσομαι ὑμῖν πνεῦμα γὰρ πα{R'} ἐμοῦ ἐξελεύσεται καὶ πνοὴν πᾶσαν ἐγὼ ἐποίησα 17 δ{I'} ἁμαρτίαν βραχύ τι ἐλύπησα αὐτὸν καὶ ἐπάταξα αὐτὸν καὶ ἀπέστρεψα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἀ{P'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλυπήθη καὶ ἐπορεύθη στυγνὸς ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ 18 τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ ἑώρακα καὶ ἰασάμην αὐτὸν καὶ παρεκάλεσα αὐτὸν καὶ ἔδωκα αὐτῷ παράκλησιν ἀληθινήν 19 εἰρήνην ἐ{P'} εἰρήνην τοῖς μακρὰν καὶ τοῖς ἐγγὺς οὖσιν καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ἰάσομαι αὐτούς 20 οἱ δὲ ἄδικοι οὕτως κλυδωνισθήσονται καὶ ἀναπαύσασθαι οὐ δυνήσονται 21 οὐκ ἔστιν χαίρειν τοῖς ἀσεβέσιν εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεός 15 A message from the high God, the great God, whose habitation is eternity, whose name is hallowed! He, dwelling in that high and holy place, dwells also among chastened and humbled souls, bidding the humble spirit, the chastened soul, rise and live! 16 I will not be always claiming my due, I will not cherish my anger eternally; what soul but takes its origin from me? Am I not the maker of all that breathes?[4] 17 Greedy wrong-doer that defies me I must needs smite down; hide my face from him in anger, let him follow the path his own erring will has chosen. 18 Now to pity his plight, now to bring him remedy! Home-coming at last, consolation at last, for him and all that bemoan him! 19 The harvest of men’s thanks, it is I that bring it to the birth.[5] Peace, the Lord says, peace to those who are far away, and to those who are near at hand; I have brought him remedy. 20 But rebellious hearts are like the tempestuous sea that can never find repose; its waters must ever be churning up mire and scum. 21 For the rebellious, the Lord says, there is no peace. 15
Quia hæc dicit Excelsus,
et Sublimis, habitans æternitatem, et sanctum nomen ejus:
in excelso et in sancto habitans,
et cum contrito et humili spiritu:
ut vivificet spiritum humilium,
et vivificet cor contritorum.
16
Non enim in sempiternum litigabo,
neque usque ad finem irascar,
quia spiritus a facie mea egredietur,
et flatus ego faciam.
17
Propter iniquitatem avaritiæ ejus iratus sum, et percussi eum.
Abscondi a te faciem meam, et indignatus sum;
et abiit vagus in via cordis sui.
18
Vias ejus vidi, et sanavi eum;
et reduxi eum, et reddidi consolationes
ipsi, et lugentibus ejus.
19
Creavi fructum labiorum pacem;
pacem ei qui longe est et qui prope,
dixit Dominus, et sanavi eum.
20
Impii autem quasi mare fervens,
quod quiescere non potest,
et redundant fluctus ejus in conculcationem et lutum.
21
Non est pax impiis, dicit Dominus Deus.
