1 σαλπίσατε σάλπιγγι ἐν Σιων κηρύξατε ἐν ὄρει ἁγίῳ μου καὶ συγχυθήτωσαν πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν διότι πάρεστιν ἡμέρα κυρίου ὅτι ἐγγύς 2 ἡμέρα σκότους καὶ γνόφου ἡμέρα νεφέλης καὶ ὁμίχλης ὡς ὄρθρος χυθήσεται ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη λαὸς πολὺς καὶ ἰσχυρός ὅμοιος αὐτῷ οὐ γέγονεν ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ με{T'} αὐτὸν οὐ προστεθήσεται ἕως ἐτῶν εἰς γενεὰς γενεῶν 3 τὰ ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ πῦρ ἀναλίσκον καὶ τὰ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἀναπτομένη φλόξ ὡς παράδεισος τρυφῆς ἡ γῆ πρὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ὄπισθεν αὐτοῦ πεδίον ἀφανισμοῦ καὶ ἀνασῳζόμενος οὐκ ἔσται αὐτῷ 4 ὡς ὅρασις ἵππων ἡ ὄψις αὐτῶν καὶ ὡς ἱππεῖς οὕτως καταδιώξονται 5 ὡς φωνὴ ἁρμάτων ἐπὶ τὰς κορυφὰς τῶν ὀρέων ἐξαλοῦνται καὶ ὡς φωνὴ φλογὸς πυρὸς κατεσθιούσης καλάμην καὶ ὡς λαὸς πολὺς καὶ ἰσχυρὸς παρατασσόμενος εἰς πόλεμον 6 ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ συντριβήσονται λαοί πᾶν πρόσωπον ὡς πρόσκαυμα χύτρας 7 ὡς μαχηταὶ δραμοῦνται καὶ ὡς ἄνδρες πολεμισταὶ ἀναβήσονται ἐπὶ τὰ τείχη καὶ ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ αὐτοῦ πορεύσεται καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐκκλίνωσιν τὰς τρίβους αὐτῶν 8 καὶ ἕκαστος ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀφέξεται καταβαρυνόμενοι ἐν τοῖς ὅπλοις αὐτῶν πορεύσονται καὶ ἐν τοῖς βέλεσιν αὐτῶν πεσοῦνται καὶ οὐ μὴ συντελεσθῶσιν 9 τῆς πόλεως ἐπιλήμψονται καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν τειχέων δραμοῦνται καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς οἰκίας ἀναβήσονται καὶ διὰ θυρίδων εἰσελεύσονται ὡς κλέπται 1 The trumpet, there, in Sion! On yonder mountain-height, my sanctuary, sound the alarm! Tremble, fellow-countrymen, one and all; the day of the Lord is coming, coming so soon. 2 Day of gloom and darkness, day of cloud and storm; spread out, like dawn over the hills, this great, this valiant army; never was the like since time began, never shall be, while the ages run their course. 3 Fire running greedily before them, and a track of flame behind; in front, a land that could match Eden for loveliness, and where they have passed, nothing but a desert waste; escape from them is none. 4 Horse nor horseman so terrible of aspect, so speedy in advance; 5 hark to the noise of them, as they spurn the hill-slopes! Din of chariots is not so loud, nor crackling of flames that feed on stubble; a valiant army, all arrayed for battle! 6 What wonder if whole nations groan at their coming, everywhere pale cheeks?[1] 7 Bravely they hasten to the attack, warrior-like scale the wall; unswerving they press on, 8 never one jostling with another, so well keeps each one his course; storm the loop-hole[2] unhurt; 9 and now, the city breached, mount wall, climb house-top, enter by windows, the thief’s way. 1

Canite tuba in Sion,
ululate in monte sancto meo,
conturbentur omnes habitatores terræ:
quia venit dies Domini, quia prope est.
2
Dies tenebrarum et caliginis,
dies nubis et turbinis;
quasi mane expansum super montes
populus multus et fortis:
similis ei non fuit a principio,
et post eum non erit
usque in annos generationis et generationis.
3
Ante faciem ejus ignis vorans,
et post eum exurens flamma.
Quasi hortus voluptatis terra coram eo,
et post eum solitudo deserti,
neque est qui effugiat eum.
4
Quasi aspectus equorum, aspectus eorum;
et quasi equites, sic current.
5
Sicut sonitus quadrigarum super capita montium exilient,
sicut sonitus flammæ ignis devorantis stipulam,
velut populus fortis præparatus ad prælium.
6
A facie ejus cruciabuntur populi;
omnes vultus redigentur in ollam.
7
Sicut fortes current;
quasi viri bellatores ascendent murum:
viri in viis suis gradientur,
et non declinabunt a semitis suis.
8
Unusquisque fratrem suum non coarctabit,
singuli in calle suo ambulabunt;
sed et per fenestras cadent, et non demolientur.
9
Urbem ingredientur, in muro current,
domos conscendent, per fenestras intrabunt quasi fur.
10 πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν συγχυθήσεται ἡ γῆ καὶ σεισθήσεται ὁ οὐρανός ὁ ἥλιος καὶ ἡ σελήνη συσκοτάσουσιν καὶ τὰ ἄστρα δύσουσιν τὸ φέγγος αὐτῶν 11 καὶ κύριος δώσει φωνὴν αὐτοῦ πρὸ προσώπου δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ ὅτι πολλή ἐστιν σφόδρα ἡ παρεμβολὴ αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἰσχυρὰ ἔργα λόγων αὐτοῦ διότι μεγάλη ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ κυρίου μεγάλη καὶ ἐπιφανὴς σφόδρα καὶ τίς ἔσται ἱκανὸς αὐτῇ 10 Before that army, quakes earth, and heaven rocks; dark grow sun and moon, and the stars withhold their radiance; 11 with his own voice the Lord heralds its coming. Wide it stretches, that host of the Lord, valiant it is, and ever ready to do his will. O great, O terrible day of the Lord; who shall find strength to bear it? 10
A facie ejus contremuit terra,
moti sunt cæli,
sol et luna obtenebrati sunt,
et stellæ retraxerunt splendorem suum.
11
Et Dominus dedit vocem suam ante faciem exercitus sui,
quia multa sunt nimis castra ejus,
quia fortia et facientia verbum ejus:
magnus enim dies Domini, et terribilis valde,
et quis sustinebit eum?
12 καὶ νῦν λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐπιστράφητε πρός με ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ ἐν νηστείᾳ καὶ ἐν κλαυθμῷ καὶ ἐν κοπετῷ 13 καὶ διαρρήξατε τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ μὴ τὰ ἱμάτια ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπιστράφητε πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν ὅτι ἐλεήμων καὶ οἰκτίρμων ἐστίν μακρόθυμος καὶ πολυέλεος καὶ μετανοῶν ἐπὶ ταῖς κακίαις 14 τίς οἶδεν εἰ ἐπιστρέψει καὶ μετανοήσει καὶ ὑπολείψεται ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ εὐλογίαν θυσίαν καὶ σπονδὴν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν 12 Time now, the Lord says, to turn the whole bent of your hearts back to me, with fasting and with mourners’ tears. 13 It is your hearts, not the garments you wear, that must be torn asunder. Come back to the Lord your God; he is ever gracious and merciful, ever patient and rich in pardon; threatens he calamity, even now he is ready to forgive. 14 Who knows but he will relent, and be appeased; cast one glance behind him, and, enough for his own due of bread and wine-offering, spare us largesse yet? 12
Nunc ergo, dicit Dominus,
convertimini ad me in toto corde vestro,
in jejunio, et in fletu, et in planctu.
13
Et scindite corda vestra, et non vestimenta vestra;
et convertimini ad Dominum Deum vestrum,
quia benignus et misericors est,
patiens et multæ misericordiæ,
et præstabilis super malitia.
14
Quis scit si convertatur, et ignoscat,
et relinquat post se benedictionem, sacrificium et libamen Domino Deo vestro?
15 σαλπίσατε σάλπιγγι ἐν Σιων ἁγιάσατε νηστείαν κηρύξατε θεραπείαν 16 συναγάγετε λαόν ἁγιάσατε ἐκκλησίαν ἐκλέξασθε πρεσβυτέρους συναγάγετε νήπια θηλάζοντα μαστούς ἐξελθάτω νυμφίος ἐκ τοῦ κοιτῶνος αὐτοῦ καὶ νύμφη ἐκ τοῦ παστοῦ αὐτῆς 17 ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς κρηπῖδος τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κλαύσονται οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ λειτουργοῦντες κυρίῳ καὶ ἐροῦσιν φεῖσαι κύριε τοῦ λαοῦ σου καὶ μὴ δῷς τὴν κληρονομίαν σου εἰς ὄνειδος τοῦ κατάρξαι αὐτῶν ἔθνη ὅπως μὴ εἴπωσιν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ θεὸς αὐτῶν 15 The trumpet, there, in Sion! Here is fasting proclaimed,[3] the citizens assembled; 16 the folk summoned, the cleansing rites performed, the elders met; weanling must be there and babe unweaned, groom leave his chamber and bride her bower. 17 Hark how the priests, that wait upon the Lord, make lament between porch and altar, crying aloud: Spare thy people, Lord, spare them; thy chosen people, do not put them to the shame of obeying heathen masters! Wilt thou let the Gentiles ask, What has become of their God? 15
Canite tuba in Sion,
sanctificate jejunium, vocate cœtum:
16
congregate populum, sanctificate ecclesiam,
coadunate senes, congregate parvulos, et sugentes ubera;
egrediatur sponsus de cubili suo,
et sponsa de thalamo suo.
17
Inter vestibulum et altare plorabunt sacerdotes, ministri Domini,
et dicent: Parce, Domine, parce populo tuo;
et ne des hæreditatem tuam in opprobrium,
ut dominentur eis nationes.
Quare dicunt in populis: Ubi est Deus eorum?
18 καὶ ἐζήλωσεν κύριος τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐφείσατο τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ 19 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη κύριος καὶ εἶπεν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐξαποστέλλω ὑμῖν τὸν σῖτον καὶ τὸν οἶνον καὶ τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ ἐμπλησθήσεσθε αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ δώσω ὑμᾶς οὐκέτι εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι 20 καὶ τὸν ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἐκδιώξω ἀ{F'} ὑμῶν καὶ ἐξώσω αὐτὸν εἰς γῆν ἄνυδρον καὶ ἀφανιῶ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν πρώτην καὶ τὰ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν ἐσχάτην καὶ ἀναβήσεται ἡ σαπρία αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναβήσεται ὁ βρόμος αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐμεγάλυνεν τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ 21 θάρσει γῆ χαῖρε καὶ εὐφραίνου ὅτι ἐμεγάλυνεν κύριος τοῦ ποιῆσαι 22 θαρσεῖτε κτήνη τοῦ πεδίου ὅτι βεβλάστηκεν πεδία τῆς ἐρήμου ὅτι ξύλον ἤνεγκεν τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ ἄμπελος καὶ συκῆ ἔδωκαν τὴν ἰσχὺν αὐτῶν 23 καὶ τὰ τέκνα Σιων χαίρετε καὶ εὐφραίνεσθε ἐπὶ τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑμῶν διότι ἔδωκεν ὑμῖν τὰ βρώματα εἰς δικαιοσύνην καὶ βρέξει ὑμῖν ὑετὸν πρόιμον καὶ ὄψιμον καθὼς ἔμπροσθεν 24 καὶ πλησθήσονται αἱ ἅλωνες σίτου καὶ ὑπερεκχυθήσονται αἱ ληνοὶ οἴνου καὶ ἐλαίου 25 καὶ ἀνταποδώσω ὑμῖν ἀντὶ τῶν ἐτῶν ὧν κατέφαγεν ἡ ἀκρὶς καὶ ὁ βροῦχος καὶ ἡ ἐρυσίβη καὶ ἡ κάμπη ἡ δύναμίς μου ἡ μεγάλη ἣν ἐξαπέστειλα εἰς ὑμᾶς 26 καὶ φάγεσθε ἐσθίοντες καὶ ἐμπλησθήσεσθε καὶ αἰνέσετε τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ἃ ἐποίησεν με{Q'} ὑμῶν εἰς θαυμάσια καὶ οὐ μὴ καταισχυνθῇ ὁ λαός μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 27 καὶ ἐπιγνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐ μὴ καταισχυνθῶσιν οὐκέτι πᾶς ὁ λαός μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 18 People of a land well loved, he spares us yet. 19 His answer comes, Here is corn and wine and oil to your hearts’ content; no more will I let the nations mock you. 20 Far he shall be driven from your lands, the northern invader; out in the trackless desert he shall lie, vanguard to eastern, rearguard to western sea, and nothing more shall assail you but stench and stink of him, this enemy that did so wondrously. 21 Fear no more, land of Israel; in the Lord’s wondrous doings triumph and rejoice! 22 Fear no more, beasts that roam the country-side; grass grows on the upland meadows! There is fruit on the trees again; vine nor fig-tree ever bore so lustily. 23 Rejoice, men of Sion, and triumph in the Lord your God; proof he gives you of your restoration to favour,[4] making the winter and the spring rains fall, as in time past. 24 Now the threshing-floor shall be piled with wheat, and the presses overflow with wine and oil. 25 Profitless years, when the locust ravaged you, Gnaw-all and Ruin-all and Spoiler, that great army of mine I let loose among you, they shall be made good. 26 Eat you shall to your hearts’ content, praising the name of the Lord your God for his wondrous protection; never again shall Israel go away disappointed. 27 I will make myself known among you, I, the Lord your God, who alone am God; Israel cheated of their hopes never again! 18

Zelatus est Dominus terram suam,
et pepercit populo suo.
19
Et respondit Dominus, et dixit populo suo:
Ecce ego mittam vobis frumentum, et vinum, et oleum,
et replebimini eis;
et non dabo vos ultra opprobrium in gentibus.
20
Et eum qui ab aquilone est procul faciam a vobis,
et expellam eum in terram inviam et desertam:
faciem ejus contra mare orientale,
et extremum ejus ad mare novissimum:
et ascendet fœtor ejus,
et ascendet putredo ejus,
quia superbe egit.
21
Noli timere, terra:
exsulta, et lætare,
quoniam magnificavit Dominus ut faceret.
22
Nolite timere, animalia regionis,
quia germinaverunt speciosa deserti;
quia lignum attulit fructum suum,
ficus et vinea dederunt virtutem suam.
23
Et, filii Sion, exsultate,
et lætamini in Domino Deo vestro,
quia dedit vobis doctorem justitiæ,
et descendere faciet ad vos imbrem matutinum et serotinum,
sicut in principio.
24
Et implebuntur areæ frumento,
et redundabunt torcularia vino et oleo.
25
Et reddam vobis annos, quos comedit locusta,
bruchus, et rubigo, et eruca:
fortitudo mea magna quam misi in vos.
26
Et comedetis vescentes, et saturabimini;
et laudabitis nomen Domini Dei vestri,
qui fecit mirabilia vobiscum;
et non confundetur populus meus in sempiternum.
27
Et scietis quia in medio Israël ego sum,
et ego Dominus Deus vester, et non est amplius;
et non confundetur populus meus in æternum.
