1 ἐὰν ἐξαποστείλῃ ἀνὴρ τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέλθῃ ἀ{P'} αὐτοῦ καὶ γένηται ἀνδρὶ ἑτέρῳ μὴ ἀνακάμπτουσα ἀνακάμψει πρὸς αὐτὸν ἔτι οὐ μιαινομένη μιανθήσεται ἡ γυνὴ ἐκείνη καὶ σὺ ἐξεπόρνευσας ἐν ποιμέσιν πολλοῖς καὶ ἀνέκαμπτες πρός με λέγει κύριος 2 ἆρον εἰς εὐθεῖαν τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς σου καὶ ἰδέ ποῦ οὐχὶ ἐξεφύρθης ἐπὶ ταῖς ὁδοῖς ἐκάθισας αὐτοῖς ὡσεὶ κορώνη ἐρημουμένη καὶ ἐμίανας τὴν γῆν ἐν ταῖς πορνείαις σου καὶ ἐν ταῖς κακίαις σου 3 καὶ ἔσχες ποιμένας πολλοὺς εἰς πρόσκομμα σεαυτῇ ὄψις πόρνης ἐγένετό σοι ἀπηναισχύντησας πρὸς πάντας 4 οὐχ ὡς οἶκόν με ἐκάλεσας καὶ πατέρα καὶ ἀρχηγὸν τῆς παρθενίας σου 5 μὴ διαμενεῖ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἢ διαφυλαχθήσεται εἰς νεῖκος ἰδοὺ ἐλάλησας καὶ ἐποίησας τὰ πονηρὰ ταῦτα καὶ ἠδυνάσθης 1 What is the law of common life? Let wife that has been put away by her husband marry a second, can she afterwards return to the first? That were shame and defilement.[1] And thou with many lovers hast played the wanton; yet come back to me, the Lord says, and thou shalt find welcome. 2 Lift up thy eyes to the bare hills, and tell me, which of them has not been the scene of thy shame? Like a highway robber thou didst lurk by the road-side, waiting for thy lovers; by thy heartless wantonness the whole land was defiled. 3 I called thee to account for it; heaven’s dews were stanched, and the late rains did not fall, and still never a blush on thy harlot’s brow! 4 Little wonder thou shouldst have been crying out to me, since then, calling me father, calling me the loved friend of thy girlhood’s days; 5 was there no quenching my anger? Would it smoulder on for ever? Ay, all this thou saidst, but still wouldst go on sinning, still wouldst have thy way. 1

Vulgo dicitur: Si dimiserit vir uxorem suam,
et recedens ab eo duxerit virum alterum,
numquid revertetur ad eam ultra?
numquid non polluta et contaminata erit mulier illa?
Tu autem fornicata es cum amatoribus multis:
tamen revertere ad me, dicit Dominus,
et ego suscipiam te.
2
Leva oculos tuos in directum,
et vide ubi non prostrata sis.
In viis sedebas,
exspectans eos quasi latro in solitudine:
et polluisti terram in fornicationibus tuis, et in malitiis tuis.
3
Quam ob rem prohibitæ sunt stillæ pluviarum,
et serotinus imber non fuit.
Frons mulieris meretricis facta est tibi;
noluisti erubescere.
4
Ergo saltem amodo voca me:
Pater meus, dux virginitatis meæ tu es:
5
numquid irasceris in perpetuum,
aut perseverabis in finem?
ecce locuta es, et fecisti mala, et potuisti.
6 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις Ιωσια τοῦ βασιλέως εἶδες ἃ ἐποίησέν μοι ἡ κατοικία τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐπορεύθησαν ἐπὶ πᾶν ὄρος ὑψηλὸν καὶ ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου ἀλσώδους καὶ ἐπόρνευσαν ἐκεῖ 7 καὶ εἶπα μετὰ τὸ πορνεῦσαι αὐτὴν ταῦτα πάντα πρός με ἀνάστρεψον καὶ οὐκ ἀνέστρεψεν καὶ εἶδεν τὴν ἀσυνθεσίαν αὐτῆς ἡ ἀσύνθετος Ιουδα 8 καὶ εἶδον διότι περὶ πάντων ὧν κατελήμφθη ἐν οἷς ἐμοιχᾶτο ἡ κατοικία τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐξαπέστειλα αὐτὴν καὶ ἔδωκα αὐτῇ βιβλίον ἀποστασίου εἰς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῆς καὶ οὐκ ἐφοβήθη ἡ ἀσύνθετος Ιουδα καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἐπόρνευσεν καὶ αὐτή 9 καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς οὐθὲν ἡ πορνεία αὐτῆς καὶ ἐμοίχευσεν τὸ ξύλον καὶ τὸν λίθον 10 καὶ ἐν πᾶσιν τούτοις οὐκ ἐπεστράφη πρός με ἡ ἀσύνθετος Ιουδα ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας αὐτῆς ἀλ{L'} ἐπὶ ψεύδει 6 It was in the days of king Josias the Lord said to me: Israel’s apostasy thou hast seen, how she ever betook herself to the nearest high hill or leafy wood, to play the wanton there; 7 and how, when I called her back to me in spite of it, she would not come. Now mark the treachery of her sister Juda. 8 She too had seen it all, how I had bidden apostate Israel begone, and given her a writ of separation; and now treacherous Juda, unabashed, went off in her turn to play the wanton. 9 So wayward, so wanton, she defiled all that land of hers, giving herself to lovers made of wood and stone! 10 After all the warnings I had given, Juda, the treacherous, would never come back to me in good earnest, only with lying professions, the Lord says. 6 Et dixit Dominus ad me in diebus Josiæ regis:

Numquid vidisti quæ fecerit aversatrix Israël?
Abiit sibimet super omnem montem excelsum,
et sub omni ligno frondoso,
et fornicata est ibi.
7
Et dixi, cum fecisset hæc omnia:
Ad me revertere:
et non est reversa.
Et vidit prævaricatrix soror ejus Juda
8
quia pro eo quod mœchata esset aversatrix Israël,
dimisissem eam,
et dedissem ei libellum repudii:
et non timuit prævaricatrix Juda soror ejus,
sed abiit, et fornicata est etiam ipsa:
9
et facilitate fornicationis suæ contaminavit terram,
et mœchata est cum lapide et ligno:
10
et in omnibus his non est reversa ad me
prævaricatrix soror ejus Juda
in toto corde suo,
sed in mendacio, ait Dominus.
11 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἐδικαίωσεν τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῆς ἀσυνθέτου Ιουδα 12 πορεύου καὶ ἀνάγνωθι τοὺς λόγους τούτους πρὸς βορρᾶν καὶ ἐρεῖς ἐπιστράφητι πρός με ἡ κατοικία τοῦ Ισραηλ λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐ στηριῶ τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐ{F'} ὑμᾶς ὅτι ἐλεήμων ἐγώ εἰμι λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐ μηνιῶ ὑμῖν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 13 πλὴν γνῶθι τὴν ἀδικίαν σου ὅτι εἰς κύριον τὸν θεόν σου ἠσέβησας καὶ διέχεας τὰς ὁδούς σου εἰς ἀλλοτρίους ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου ἀλσώδους τῆς δὲ φωνῆς μου οὐχ ὑπήκουσας λέγει κύριος 14 ἐπιστράφητε υἱοὶ ἀφεστηκότες λέγει κύριος διότι ἐγὼ κατακυριεύσω ὑμῶν καὶ λήμψομαι ὑμᾶς ἕνα ἐκ πόλεως καὶ δύο ἐκ πατριᾶς καὶ εἰσάξω ὑμᾶς εἰς Σιων 15 καὶ δώσω ὑμῖν ποιμένας κατὰ τὴν καρδίαν μου καὶ ποιμανοῦσιν ὑμᾶς ποιμαίνοντες με{T'} ἐπιστήμης 16 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν πληθυνθῆτε καὶ αὐξηθῆτε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις λέγει κύριος οὐκ ἐροῦσιν ἔτι κιβωτὸς διαθήκης ἁγίου Ισραηλ οὐκ ἀναβήσεται ἐπὶ καρδίαν οὐκ ὀνομασθήσεται οὐδὲ ἐπισκεφθήσεται καὶ οὐ ποιηθήσεται ἔτι 17 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ καλέσουσιν τὴν Ιερουσαλημ θρόνος κυρίου καὶ συναχθήσονται εἰς αὐτὴν πάντα τὰ ἔθνη καὶ οὐ πορεύσονται ἔτι ὀπίσω τῶν ἐνθυμημάτων τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν τῆς πονηρᾶς 18 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις συνελεύσονται οἶκος Ιουδα ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ ἥξουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἀπὸ γῆς βορρᾶ καὶ ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν χωρῶν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἣν κατεκληρονόμησα τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν 11 And the Lord told me: Better than Juda’s treachery, the apostasy of Israel deserves to be acquitted. 12 Carry this message of mine to the north country: Come back to me, apostate Israel, the Lord says, and there shall be no frown of mine awaiting you; I am merciful, the Lord says, and vengeance shall not last for ever. 13 Only acknowledge thy fault, he tells thee, in deserting the Lord thy God and betaking thyself to the bowers of strange lovers, deaf to my call. 14 Wandering hearts, the Lord bids you come back to him, and renew your troth; by ones and twos, from this city or that, from this clan or that, he will claim you for his own and bring you back to Sion; 15 and you shall have shepherds of his own choice to guide you well and prudently. 16 After that, the Lord says, when all is growth and fertility, no longer shall you have the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant for your rallying-cry; from thought and memory it will have passed away, nor any care shall be bestowed on the fashioning of it. 17 It is Jerusalem men will speak of as the Lord’s throne; there at Jerusalem all the nations of the world will meet in the Lord’s name, the false aims of their perverse hearts forgotten. 18 When that time comes, Juda and Israel will be united; together they will come back from the north country to the land I gave your fathers for their home. 11 Et dixit Dominus ad me: Justificavit animam suam aversatrix Israël, comparatione prævaricatricis Judæ. 12 Vade, et clama sermones istos contra aquilonem, et dices:

Revertere, aversatrix Israël, ait Dominus,
et non avertam faciem meam a vobis,
quia sanctus ego sum, dicit Dominus,
et non irascar in perpetuum.
13
Verumtamen scito iniquitatem tuam,
quia in Dominum Deum tuum prævaricata es,
et dispersisti vias tuas alienis sub omni ligno frondoso,
et vocem meam non audisti, ait Dominus.
14
Convertimini, filii revertentes, dicit Dominus,
quia ego vir vester:
et assumam vos unum de civitate,
et duos de cognatione,
et introducam vos in Sion.
15
Et dabo vobis pastores juxta cor meum,
et pascent vos scientia et doctrina.
16
Cumque multiplicati fueritis,
et creveritis in terra in diebus illis, ait Dominus,
non dicent ultra:
Arca testamenti Domini:
neque ascendet super cor, neque recordabuntur illius,
nec visitabitur, nec fiet ultra.
17
In tempore illo vocabunt Jerusalem solium Domini:
et congregabuntur ad eam omnes gentes
in nomine Domini in Jerusalem,
et non ambulabunt post pravitatem cordis sui pessimi.
18
In diebus illis ibit domus Juda ad domum Israël,
et venient simul de terra aquilonis
ad terram quam dedi patribus vestris.
19 καὶ ἐγὼ εἶπα γένοιτο κύριε ὅτι τάξω σε εἰς τέκνα καὶ δώσω σοι γῆν ἐκλεκτὴν κληρονομίαν θεοῦ παντοκράτορος ἐθνῶν καὶ εἶπα πατέρα καλέσετέ με καὶ ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ οὐκ ἀποστραφήσεσθε 20 πλὴν ὡς ἀθετεῖ γυνὴ εἰς τὸν συνόντα αὐτῇ οὕτως ἠθέτησεν εἰς ἐμὲ οἶκος Ισραηλ λέγει κύριος 21 φωνὴ ἐκ χειλέων ἠκούσθη κλαυθμοῦ καὶ δεήσεως υἱῶν Ισραηλ ὅτι ἠδίκησαν ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτῶν ἐπελάθοντο θεοῦ ἁγίου αὐτῶν 22 ἐπιστράφητε υἱοὶ ἐπιστρέφοντες καὶ ἰάσομαι τὰ συντρίμματα ὑμῶν ἰδοὺ δοῦλοι ἡμεῖς ἐσόμεθά σοι ὅτι σὺ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν εἶ 23 ὄντως εἰς ψεῦδος ἦσαν οἱ βουνοὶ καὶ ἡ δύναμις τῶν ὀρέων πλὴν διὰ κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἡ σωτηρία τοῦ Ισραηλ 24 ἡ δὲ αἰσχύνη κατανάλωσεν τοὺς μόχθους τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν ἀπὸ νεότητος ἡμῶν τὰ πρόβατα αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς μόσχους αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν 25 ἐκοιμήθημεν ἐν τῇ αἰσχύνῃ ἡμῶν καὶ ἐπεκάλυψεν ἡμᾶς ἡ ἀτιμία ἡμῶν διότι ἔναντι τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἡμάρτομεν ἡμεῖς καὶ οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν ἀπὸ νεότητος ἡμῶν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ οὐχ ὑπηκούσαμεν τῆς φωνῆς κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν 19 Must I ever be offering thee sonship, and a land so fair that all the peoples of the world might envy thee its possession? Must I ever be pleading with thee to acknowledge me as thy father, and forsake my guidance no more? 20 Hitherto, the Lord says, nothing could I win from Israel but a false jade’s contempt. 21 Now, from yonder hill-passes, another cry is heard; a cry of mourning and lament from the sons of Israel, over the wrong path they have chosen in forgetting the Lord their God. 22 Wandering hearts, come back to me, and all your rebel acts shall be pardoned.

See, we come to thee; art thou not the Lord our God? 23 The many gods of hill-side and mountain-side have played us false; we know it now; we know now that Israel must look to the Lord our God for deliverance. 24 Ever since the days of our youth all the hopes our fathers had, of flock and herd, of son and daughter, are lost; the worship of shame has cheated us.[2] 25 Lie we down with shame for our bed, and let reproach be all our covering; sinners from our youth upwards, we and our fathers before us, against the Lord our God; the Lord our God, and we would not listen to his voice!
19
Ego autem dixi:
Quomodo ponam te in filios,
et tribuam tibi terram desiderabilem,
hæreditatem præclaram exercituum gentium?
Et dixi: Patrem vocabis me,
et post me ingredi non cessabis.
20
Sed quomodo si contemnat mulier amatorem suum,
sic contempsit me domus Israël,
dicit Dominus.
21
Vox in viis audita est,
ploratus et ululatus filiorum Israël:
quoniam iniquam fecerunt viam suam;
obliti sunt Domini Dei sui.
22
Convertimini, filii revertentes,
et sanabo aversiones vestras.
Ecce nos venimus ad te:
tu enim es Dominus Deus noster.
23
Vere mendaces erant colles,
et multitudo montium:
vere in Domino Deo nostro salus Israël.
24
Confusio comedit laborem patrum nostrorum ab adolescentia nostra:
greges eorum, et armenta eorum,
filios eorum, et filias eorum.
25
Dormiemus in confusione nostra,
et operiet nos ignominia nostra:
quoniam Domino Deo nostro peccavimus nos, et patres nostri,
ab adolescentia nostra usque ad diem hanc:
et non audivimus vocem Domini Dei nostri.
