1 2 καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐμνήσθην ἐλέους νεότητός σου καὶ ἀγάπης τελειώσεώς σου τοῦ ἐξακολουθῆσαί σε τῷ ἁγίῳ Ισραηλ λέγει κύριος 3 ἅγιος Ισραηλ τῷ κυρίῳ ἀρχὴ γενημάτων αὐτοῦ πάντες οἱ ἔσθοντες αὐτὸν πλημμελήσουσιν κακὰ ἥξει ἐ{P'} αὐτούς φησὶν κύριος 1 Then the Lord’s word came to me: 2 Go and cry out so that all Jerusalem may hear, with this message from the Lord: What memories I have of thee, gracious memories of thy youth, of the love that plighted troth between us, when I led thee through the desert; alone in the barren wastes, thou and I! 3 Israel was set apart for the Lord, first-fruits vowed to be his revenue; he lay under a ban that plucked them, and must rue his rashness, the Lord says. 1 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens: 2

Vade, et clama in auribus Jerusalem, dicens:
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Recordatus sum tui, miserans adolescentiam tuam,
et caritatem desponsationis tuæ,
quando secuta es me in deserto,
in terra quæ non seminatur.
3
Sanctus Israël Domino,
primitiæ frugum ejus:
omnes qui devorant eum delinquunt:
mala venient super eos,
dicit Dominus.
4 ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου οἶκος Ιακωβ καὶ πᾶσα πατριὰ οἴκου Ισραηλ 5 τάδε λέγει κύριος τί εὕροσαν οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν ἐν ἐμοὶ πλημμέλημα ὅτι ἀπέστησαν μακρὰν ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὀπίσω τῶν ματαίων καὶ ἐματαιώθησαν 6 καὶ οὐκ εἶπαν ποῦ ἐστιν κύριος ὁ ἀναγαγὼν ἡμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ὁ καθοδηγήσας ἡμᾶς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἐν γῇ ἀπείρῳ καὶ ἀβάτῳ ἐν γῇ ἀνύδρῳ καὶ ἀκάρπῳ ἐν γῇ ἐν ᾗ οὐ διώδευσεν ἐν αὐτῇ οὐθὲν καὶ οὐ κατῴκησεν ἐκεῖ υἱὸς ἀνθρώπου 7 καὶ εἰσήγαγον ὑμᾶς εἰς τὸν Κάρμηλον τοῦ φαγεῖν ὑμᾶς τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἀγαθὰ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσήλθατε καὶ ἐμιάνατε τὴν γῆν μου καὶ τὴν κληρονομίαν μου ἔθεσθε εἰς βδέλυγμα 8 οἱ ἱερεῖς οὐκ εἶπαν ποῦ ἐστιν κύριος καὶ οἱ ἀντεχόμενοι τοῦ νόμου οὐκ ἠπίσταντό με καὶ οἱ ποιμένες ἠσέβουν εἰς ἐμέ καὶ οἱ προφῆται ἐπροφήτευον τῇ Βααλ καὶ ὀπίσω ἀνωφελοῦς ἐπορεύθησαν 9 διὰ τοῦτο ἔτι κριθήσομαι πρὸς ὑμᾶς λέγει κύριος καὶ πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν υἱῶν ὑμῶν κριθήσομαι 4 Listen, then, to the Lord’s word, men of Jacob; listen, every clan that bears the name of Israel, 5 to the Lord’s message: What fault did they find in me, those fathers of yours, that they should keep their distance from me, and court false gods, false as themselves? 6 And never a thought to ask where I, the Lord, was, that rescued them from Egypt, and led them on their way through the desert, wild and solitary, parched and dead, far from haunt of traveller and the homes of men! 7 Into a land of plenty I brought you, to enjoy the fruits and the blessings of it; and you had no sooner entered it than you must needs defile it, my own land, turn my chosen home into a place abominable. 8 Never a priest to ask where I, the Lord, was; never a man of law but made a stranger of me, never a ruler but played me false, never a prophet but took Baal for his oracle, and had recourse to powers that were impotent. 9 Against you, the Lord says, my appeal still lies, and with your children I will yet be at issue. 4
Audite verbum Domini, domus Jacob,
et omnes cognationes domus Israël.
5
Hæc dicit Dominus:
Quid invenerunt patres vestri in me iniquitatis,
quia elongaverunt a me,
et ambulaverunt post vanitatem,
et vani facti sunt?
6
Et non dixerunt: Ubi est Dominus
qui ascendere nos fecit de terra Ægypti;
qui traduxit nos per desertum,
per terram inhabitabilem et inviam,
per terram sitis, et imaginem mortis,
per terram in qua non ambulavit vir,
neque habitavit homo?
7
Et induxi vos in terram Carmeli,
ut comederetis fructum ejus et optima illius:
et ingressi contaminastis terram meam,
et hæreditatem meam posuistis in abominationem.
8
Sacerdotes non dixerunt: Ubi est Dominus?
et tenentes legem nescierunt me,
et pastores prævaricati sunt in me,
et prophetæ prophetaverunt in Baal,
et idola secuti sunt.
9
Propterea adhuc judicio contendam vobiscum, ait Dominus,
et cum filiis vestris disceptabo.
10 διότι διέλθετε εἰς νήσους Χεττιιμ καὶ ἴδετε καὶ εἰς Κηδαρ ἀποστείλατε καὶ νοήσατε σφόδρα καὶ ἴδετε εἰ γέγονεν τοιαῦτα 11 εἰ ἀλλάξονται ἔθνη θεοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ οὗτοι οὔκ εἰσιν θεοί ὁ δὲ λαός μου ἠλλάξατο τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ ἐξ ἧς οὐκ ὠφεληθήσονται 12 ἐξέστη ὁ οὐρανὸς ἐπὶ τούτῳ καὶ ἔφριξεν ἐπὶ πλεῖον σφόδρα λέγει κύριος 13 ὅτι δύο πονηρὰ ἐποίησεν ὁ λαός μου ἐμὲ ἐγκατέλιπον πηγὴν ὕδατος ζωῆς καὶ ὤρυξαν ἑαυτοῖς λάκκους συντετριμμένους οἳ οὐ δυνήσονται ὕδωρ συνέχειν 10 Sail the seas till you reach the isles of Cethim; send envoys out to the wilds of Cedar; look for yourselves and make earnest enquiry, to know if the like was ever heard! 11 What nation ever changed its gods, though gods indeed they were not? And should my people barter away the glory that dwelt among them, for powers that power have none? 12 In horror and dismay witness, you heavens, the sight; crumble in ruins![1] 13 Two wrongs this people of mine committed; me they forsook, the fountain of living water, and thereupon they dug cisterns of their own, leaking cisterns, that water had none to give them. 10
Transite ad insulas Cethim, et videte:
et in Cedar mittite, et considerate vehementer:
et videte si factum est hujuscemodi:
11
si mutavit gens deos suos,
et certe ipsi non sunt dii:
populus vero meus mutavit gloriam suam in idolum.
12
Obstupescite, cæli, super hoc,
et portæ ejus, desolamini vehementer, dicit Dominus.
13
Duo enim mala fecit populus meus:
me dereliquerunt fontem aquæ vivæ,
et foderunt sibi cisternas, cisternas dissipatas,
quia continere non valent aquas.
14 μὴ δοῦλός ἐστιν Ισραηλ ἢ οἰκογενής ἐστιν διὰ τί εἰς προνομὴν ἐγένετο 15 ἐ{P'} αὐτὸν ὠρύοντο λέοντες καὶ ἔδωκαν τὴν φωνὴν αὐτῶν οἳ ἔταξαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ εἰς ἔρημον καὶ αἱ πόλεις αὐτοῦ κατεσκάφησαν παρὰ τὸ μὴ κατοικεῖσθαι 16 καὶ υἱοὶ Μέμφεως καὶ Ταφνας ἔγνωσάν σε καὶ κατέπαιζόν σου 17 οὐχὶ ταῦτα ἐποίησέν σοι τὸ καταλιπεῖν σε ἐμέ λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός σου 14 What, is the race of Israel a slave, a chattel, that it should pass from hand to hand as the prize of war? 15 Roaring lions have claimed it for their prey; the land lies waste, the cities burnt and desolate. 16 Even the Egyptians have come from Memphis and Taphne, to strip thee bare; 17 tell me, Israel, how came this? Was it not because thou hadst forsaken the Lord thy God, that till then had led thee?[2] 14
Numquid servus est Israël, aut vernaculus?
quare ergo factus est in prædam?
15
Super eum rugierunt leones,
et dederunt vocem suam:
posuerunt terram ejus in solitudinem.
Civitates ejus exustæ sunt,
et non est qui habitet in eis.
16
Filii quoque Mempheos et Taphnes
constupraverunt te usque ad verticem.
17
Numquid non istud factum est tibi,
quia dereliquisti Dominum Deum tuum
eo tempore quo ducebat te per viam?
18 καὶ νῦν τί σοι καὶ τῇ ὁδῷ Αἰγύπτου τοῦ πιεῖν ὕδωρ Γηων καὶ τί σοι καὶ τῇ ὁδῷ Ἀσσυρίων τοῦ πιεῖν ὕδωρ ποταμῶν 19 παιδεύσει σε ἡ ἀποστασία σου καὶ ἡ κακία σου ἐλέγξει σε καὶ γνῶθι καὶ ἰδὲ ὅτι πικρόν σοι τὸ καταλιπεῖν σε ἐμέ λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός σου καὶ οὐκ εὐδόκησα ἐπὶ σοί λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός σου 20 ὅτι ἀ{P'} αἰῶνος συνέτριψας τὸν ζυγόν σου διέσπασας τοὺς δεσμούς σου καὶ εἶπας οὐ δουλεύσω ἀλλὰ πορεύσομαι ἐπὶ πᾶν βουνὸν ὑψηλὸν καὶ ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου κατασκίου ἐκεῖ διαχυθήσομαι ἐν τῇ πορνείᾳ μου 21 ἐγὼ δὲ ἐφύτευσά σε ἄμπελον καρποφόρον πᾶσαν ἀληθινήν πῶς ἐστράφης εἰς πικρίαν ἡ ἄμπελος ἡ ἀλλοτρία 18 What, wouldst thou turn to Egypt, to Assyria, and slake thy thirst with Nile or Euphrates?[3] 19 Here is the very proof of thy wickedness, the measure of thy unfaithfulness; see how ill it has gone with thee, says the Lord, the God of hosts, ever since thou didst forsake the Lord thy God, ever since thou didst banish the fear of me! 20 It is an old tale, now, how thou didst break in pieces the yoke of my dominion, didst sever all the bonds between us, crying out, I will serve no more! Thou wast off to play the wanton, the nearest hill-top or secret forest for thy bower. 21 Alas, vineyard of mine, that I planted with such care, never a worthless shoot! How is it thou hast played me false, and art no vineyard of mine? 18
Et nunc quid tibi vis in via Ægypti,
ut bibas aquam turbidam?
et quid tibi cum via Assyriorum,
ut bibas aquam fluminis?
19
Arguet te malitia tua,
et aversio tua increpabit te.
Scito et vide quia malum et amarum est
reliquisse te Dominum Deum tuum,
et non esse timorem mei apud te,
dicit Dominus Deus exercituum.
20
A sæculo confregisti jugum meum:
rupisti vincula mea,
et dixisti: Non serviam.
In omni enim colle sublimi,
et sub omni ligno frondoso,
tu prosternebaris meretrix.
21
Ego autem plantavi te vineam electam,
omne semen verum:
quomodo ergo conversa es mihi in pravum,
vinea aliena?
22 ἐὰν ἀποπλύνῃ ἐν νίτρῳ καὶ πληθύνῃς σεαυτῇ πόαν κεκηλίδωσαι ἐν ταῖς ἀδικίαις σου ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ λέγει κύριος 23 πῶς ἐρεῖς οὐκ ἐμιάνθην καὶ ὀπίσω τῆς Βααλ οὐκ ἐπορεύθην ἰδὲ τὰς ὁδούς σου ἐν τῷ πολυανδρίῳ καὶ γνῶθι τί ἐποίησας ὀψὲ φωνὴ αὐτῆς ὠλόλυξεν τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῆς 24 ἐπλάτυνεν ἐ{F'} ὕδατα ἐρήμου ἐν ἐπιθυμίαις ψυχῆς αὐτῆς ἐπνευματοφορεῖτο παρεδόθη τίς ἐπιστρέψει αὐτήν πάντες οἱ ζητοῦντες αὐτὴν οὐ κοπιάσουσιν ἐν τῇ ταπεινώσει αὐτῆς εὑρήσουσιν αὐτήν 25 ἀπόστρεψον τὸν πόδα σου ἀπὸ ὁδοῦ τραχείας καὶ τὸν φάρυγγά σου ἀπὸ δίψους ἡ δὲ εἶπεν ἀνδριοῦμαι ὅτι ἠγαπήκει ἀλλοτρίους καὶ ὀπίσω αὐτῶν ἐπορεύετο 22 Ay, use nitre for thy cleansing, spread potash as thou mayst, foul with guilt I shall still find thee, says the Lord God. 23 Nay, never boast that thou art undefiled, to countryside gods hast no recourse; bethink thee of thy traffickings in Ben-Ennom valley, and read there the story of thy doings. Camel never found its way so lightly; 24 wild ass in its familiar desert, scenting its mate, never obeyed the fire in its blood more uncontrollably! Little search it needs to find thy haunts, as its mate in spring-time.[4] 25 Reckless of unshod feet, of parching throat, thou criest out despairingly, Return I cannot; to alien gods all my heart is vowed, and I must follow still! 22
Si laveris te nitro,
et multiplicaveris tibi herbam borith,
maculata es in iniquitate tua coram me,
dicit Dominus Deus.
23
Quomodo dicis: Non sum polluta;
post Baalim non ambulavi?
Vide vias tuas in convalle;
scito quid feceris:
cursor levis explicans vias suas.
24
Onager assuetus in solitudine,
in desiderio animæ suæ attraxit ventum amoris sui:
nullus avertet eam:
omnes qui quærunt eam non deficient:
in menstruis ejus invenient eam.
25
Prohibe pedem tuum a nuditate,
et guttur tuum a siti.
Et dixisti: Desperavi: nequaquam faciam:
adamavi quippe alienos,
et post eos ambulabo.
26 ὡς αἰσχύνη κλέπτου ὅταν ἁλῷ οὕτως αἰσχυνθήσονται οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ προφῆται αὐτῶν 27 τῷ ξύλῳ εἶπαν ὅτι πατήρ μου εἶ σύ καὶ τῷ λίθῳ σὺ ἐγέννησάς με καὶ ἔστρεψαν ἐ{P'} ἐμὲ νῶτα καὶ οὐ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ τῶν κακῶν αὐτῶν ἐροῦσιν ἀνάστα καὶ σῶσον ἡμᾶς 28 καὶ ποῦ εἰσιν οἱ θεοί σου οὓς ἐποίησας σεαυτῷ εἰ ἀναστήσονται καὶ σώσουσίν σε ἐν καιρῷ τῆς κακώσεώς σου ὅτι κα{T'} ἀριθμὸν τῶν πόλεών σου ἦσαν θεοί σου Ιουδα καὶ κα{T'} ἀριθμὸν διόδων τῆς Ιερουσαλημ ἔθυον τῇ Βααλ 29 ἵνα τί λαλεῖτε πρός με πάντες ὑμεῖς ἠσεβήσατε καὶ πάντες ὑμεῖς ἠνομήσατε εἰς ἐμέ λέγει κύριος 30 μάτην ἐπάταξα τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν παιδείαν οὐκ ἐδέξασθε μάχαιρα κατέφαγεν τοὺς προφήτας ὑμῶν ὡς λέων ὀλεθρεύων καὶ οὐκ ἐφοβήθητε 26 Thief caught in the act has less cause to blush than the men of Israel, king and prince, priest and prophet, with the rest. 27 Stock of wood and block of stone they hailed as the father that had begotten them; on me they turned their backs, and gave me never a glance. And now, in their distress, it is Up, Lord, and bring us rescue! 28 Where are those other gods thou madest for thyself? Bid them rise up and aid thee in the hour of peril; gods thou hadst a many; no city of thine, Juda, but must have its own! 29 And would you still implead me? Nay, says the Lord, you have forsaken me, one and all. 30 In vain I have smitten them, all those sons of yours; still you turned your swords against the prophets, bloodthirsty as lions. 26

Quomodo confunditur fur quando deprehenditur,
sic confusi sunt domus Israël,
ipsi et reges eorum,
principes, et sacerdotes, et prophetæ eorum,
27
dicentes ligno: Pater meus es tu:
et lapidi: Tu me genuisti.
Verterunt ad me tergum et non faciem,
et in tempore afflictionis suæ dicent:
Surge, et libera nos.
28
Ubi sunt dii tui quos fecisti tibi?
surgant, et liberent te in tempore afflictionis tuæ:
secundum numerum quippe civitatum tuarum erant dii tui, Juda.
29
Quid vultis mecum judicio contendere?
omnes dereliquistis me, dicit Dominus.
30
Frustra percussi filios vestros:
disciplinam non receperunt.
Devoravit gladius vester prophetas vestros:
quasi leo vastator
31 ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου τάδε λέγει κύριος μὴ ἔρημος ἐγενόμην τῷ Ισραηλ ἢ γῆ κεχερσωμένη διὰ τί εἶπεν ὁ λαός μου οὐ κυριευθησόμεθα καὶ οὐχ ἥξομεν πρὸς σὲ ἔτι 32 μὴ ἐπιλήσεται νύμφη τὸν κόσμον αὐτῆς καὶ παρθένος τὴν στηθοδεσμίδα αὐτῆς ὁ δὲ λαός μου ἐπελάθετό μου ἡμέρας ὧν οὐκ ἔστιν ἀριθμός 33 τί ἔτι καλὸν ἐπιτηδεύσεις ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς σου τοῦ ζητῆσαι ἀγάπησιν οὐχ οὕτως ἀλλὰ καὶ σὺ ἐπονηρεύσω τοῦ μιᾶναι τὰς ὁδούς σου 34 καὶ ἐν ταῖς χερσίν σου εὑρέθησαν αἵματα ψυχῶν ἀθῴων οὐκ ἐν διορύγμασιν εὗρον αὐτούς ἀλ{L'} ἐπὶ πάσῃ δρυί 35 καὶ εἶπας ἀθῷός εἰμι ἀλλὰ ἀποστραφήτω ὁ θυμὸς αὐτοῦ ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ κρίνομαι πρὸς σὲ ἐν τῷ λέγειν σε οὐχ ἥμαρτον 31 Out upon this age! Here is the Lord’s message, give good heed to it. Have I shewn myself unfriendly to Israel, like a desert, like a land overcast by shadows, that my own people has resolved to keep its distance, and come my way no more? 32 What, should maid forget her jewels, bride her stomacher? And my own people, all these long days, has forgotten me! 33 What avails it to justify thyself, in hope of winning back my love, when thou thyself dost blazon so openly thy doings, thy foul misdoings? 34 There is blood on thy hands, the blood of friendless folk and innocent. It is not thieves I have found, but men guilty of such crimes as these.[5] 35 And still thou declarest thyself innocent of any fault, still thou biddest me withhold my vengeance! Come, let me answer thy plea of innocence. 31 generatio vestra.
Videte verbum Domini:
numquid solitudo factus sum Israëli,
aut terra serotina?
quare ergo dixit populus meus: Recessimus;
non veniemus ultra ad te?
32
Numquid obliviscetur virgo ornamenti sui,
aut sponsa fasciæ pectoralis suæ?
populus vero meus oblitus est mei diebus innumeris.
33
Quid niteris bonam ostendere viam tuam
ad quærendam dilectionem,
quæ insuper et malitias tuas docuisti vias tuas,
34
et in alis tuis inventus est sanguis animarum pauperum et innocentum?
non in fossis inveni eos,
sed in omnibus quæ supra memoravi.
35
Et dixisti: Absque peccato et innocens ego sum,
et propterea avertatur furor tuus a me.
Ecce ego judicio contendam tecum,
eo quod dixeris: Non peccavi.
36 τί κατεφρόνησας σφόδρα τοῦ δευτερῶσαι τὰς ὁδούς σου καὶ ἀπὸ Αἰγύπτου καταισχυνθήσῃ καθὼς κατῃσχύνθης ἀπὸ Ασσουρ 37 ὅτι καὶ ἐντεῦθεν ἐξελεύσῃ καὶ αἱ χεῖρές σου ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς σου ὅτι ἀπώσατο κύριος τὴν ἐλπίδα σου καὶ οὐκ εὐοδωθήσῃ ἐν αὐτῇ 36 How light a woman thou art, ever at thy old ways! Not less than thy hopes of Assyria, thy hopes of Egypt shall be disappointed; 37 thence, too, thou shalt come away wringing thy hands; all the confidence thou hast the Lord means to destroy; thou shalt make no shift with Egypt. 36
Quam vilis facta es nimis, iterans vias tuas!
et ab Ægypto confunderis,
sicut confusa es ab Assur.
37
Nam et ab ista egredieris,
et manus tuæ erunt super caput tuum:
quoniam obtrivit Dominus confidentiam tuam,
et nihil habebis prosperum in ea.
