Ezekiel 8


1  And it came to pass1961 in the sixth8345 year,8141 in the sixth8345 month, in the fifth2568 day of the month,2320 as I589 sat3427 in mine house,1004 and the elders2205 of Judah3063 sat3427 before6440 me, that the hand3027 of the Lord136 GOD3069 fell5307 there8033 upon5921 me.

2  Then I beheld,7200 and lo2009 a likeness1823 as the appearance4758 of fire:784 from the appearance4480 4758 of his loins4975 even downward,4295 fire;784 and from his loins4480 4975 even upward,4605 as the appearance4758 of brightness,2096 as the color5869 of amber.2830

3  And he put forth7971 the form8403 of a hand,3027 and took3947 me by a lock6734 of mine head;7218 and the spirit7307 lifted me up5375 853 between996 the earth776 and the heaven,8064 and brought935 me in the visions4759 of God430 to Jerusalem,3389 to413 the door6607 of the inner6442 gate8179 that looketh6437 toward the north;6828 where834 8033 was the seat4186 of the image5566 of jealousy,7068 which provoketh to jealousy.7065

4  And, behold,2009 the glory3519 of the God430 of Israel3478 was there,8033 according to the vision4758 that834 I saw7200 in the plain.1237

5  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 lift up5375 thine eyes5869 now4994 the way1870 toward the north.6828 So I lifted up5375 mine eyes5869 the way1870 toward the north,6828 and behold2009 northward4480 6828 at the gate8179 of the altar4196 this2088 image5566 of jealousy7068 in the entry.872

6  He said559 furthermore unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 seest7200 thou859 what4100 they1992 do?6213 even the great1419 abominations8441 that834 the house1004 of Israel3478 committeth6213 here,6311 that I should go far off7368 from4480 5921 my sanctuary?4720 but turn thee yet again,7725 5750 and thou shalt see7200 greater1419 abominations.8441

7  And he brought935 me to413 the door6607 of the court;2691 and when I looked,7200 behold2009 a259 hole2356 in the wall.7023

8  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 dig2864 now4994 in the wall:7023 and when I had digged2864 in the wall,7023 behold2009 a259 door.6607

9  And he said559 unto413 me, Go in,935 and behold7200 853 the wicked7451 abominations8441 that834 they1992 do6213 here.6311

10  So I went in935 and saw;7200 and behold2009 every3605 form8403 of creeping things,7431 and abominable8263 beasts,929 and all3605 the idols1544 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 portrayed2707 upon5921 the wall7023 round about.5439

11  And there stood5975 before6440 them seventy7657 men376 of the ancients4480 2205 of the house1004 of Israel,3478 and in the midst8432 of them stood5975 Jaazaniah2970 the son1121 of Shaphan,8227 with every man376 his censer4730 in his hand;3027 and a thick6282 cloud6051 of incense7004 went up.5927

12  Then said559 he unto413 me, Son1121 of man,120 hast thou seen7200 what834 the ancients2205 of the house1004 of Israel3478 do6213 in the dark,2822 every man376 in the chambers2315 of his imagery?4906 for3588 they say,559 The LORD3068 seeth7200 us not;369 the LORD3068 hath forsaken5800 853 the earth.776

13  He said559 also unto413 me, Turn thee yet again,7725 5750 and thou shalt see7200 greater1419 abominations8441 that834 they1992 do.6213

14  Then he brought935 me to413 the door6607 of the gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house1004 which834 was toward413 the north;6828 and, behold,2009 there8033 sat3427 women802 weeping1058 for854 Tammuz.8542

15  Then said559 he unto413 me, Hast thou seen7200 this, O son1121 of man?120 turn thee yet again,7725 5750 and thou shalt see7200 greater1419 abominations8441 than these.4480 428

16  And he brought935 me into413 the inner6442 court2691 of the LORD's3068 house,1004 and, behold,2009 at the door6607 of the temple1964 of the LORD,3068 between996 the porch197 and the altar,4196 were about five2568 and twenty6242 men,376 with their backs268 toward413 the temple1964 of the LORD,3068 and their faces6440 toward the east;6924 and they1992 worshiped7812 the sun8121 toward the east.6924

17  Then he said559 unto413 me, Hast thou seen7200 this, O son1121 of man?120 Is it a light thing7043 to the house1004 of Judah3063 that they commit4480 6213 853 the abominations8441 which834 they commit6213 here?6311 for3588 they have filled4390 853 the land776 with violence,2555 and have returned7725 to provoke me to anger:3707 and, lo,2009 they put7971 853 the branch2156 to413 their nose.639

18  Therefore will I589 also1571 deal6213 in fury:2534 mine eye5869 shall not3808 spare,2347 neither3808 will I have pity:2550 and though they cry7121 in mine ears241 with a loud1419 voice,6963 yet will I not3808 hear8085 them.


1 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἕκτῳ ἔτει ἐν τῷ πέμπτῳ μηνὶ πέμπτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς ἐγὼ ἐκαθήμην ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι Ιουδα ἐκάθηντο ἐνώπιόν μου καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ χεὶρ κυρίου

2 καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁμοίωμα ἀνδρός ἀπὸ τῆς ὀσφύος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕως κάτω πῦρ καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ὀσφύος αὐτοῦ ὑπεράνω ὡς ὅρασις ἠλέκτρου

3 καὶ ἐξέτεινεν ὁμοίωμα χειρὸς καὶ ἀνέλαβέν με τῆς κορυφῆς μου καὶ ἀνέλαβέν με πνεῦμα ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἤγαγέν με εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐν ὁράσει θεοῦ ἐπὶ τὰ πρόθυρα τῆς πύλης τῆς ἐσωτέρας τῆς βλεπούσης πρὸς βορρᾶν οὗ ἦν ἡ στήλη τοῦ κτωμένου

4 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐκεῖ ἦν δόξα κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ κατὰ τὴν ὅρασιν ἣν εἶδον ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ

5 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ἀνάβλεψον τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου πρὸς βορρᾶν καὶ ἀνέβλεψα τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς μου πρὸς βορρᾶν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἐπὶ τὴν πύλην τὴν πρὸς ἀνατολάς

6 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ἑώρακας τί οὗτοι ποιοῦσιν ἀνομίας μεγάλας ποιοῦσιν ὧδε τοῦ ἀπέχεσθαι ἀπὸ τῶν ἁγίων μου καὶ ἔτι ὄψει ἀνομίας μείζονας

7 καὶ εἰσήγαγέν με ἐπὶ τὰ πρόθυρα τῆς αὐλῆς

8 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ὄρυξον καὶ ὤρυξα καὶ ἰδοὺ θύρα μία

9 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με εἴσελθε καὶ ἰδὲ τὰς ἀνομίας ἃς οὗτοι ποιοῦσιν ὧδε

10 καὶ εἰσῆλθον καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ μάταια βδελύγματα καὶ πάντα τὰ εἴδωλα οἴκου Ισραηλ διαγεγραμμένα ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῦ κύκλῳ

11 καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα ἄνδρες ἐκ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων οἴκου Ισραηλ καὶ Ιεζονιας ὁ τοῦ Σαφαν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν εἱστήκει πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ ἕκαστος θυμιατήριον αὐτοῦ εἶχεν ἐν τῇ χειρί καὶ ἡ ἀτμὶς τοῦ θυμιάματος ἀνέβαινεν

12 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ἑώρακας ἃ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ οἴκου Ισραηλ ποιοῦσιν ἕκαστος αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ κοιτῶνι τῷ κρυπτῷ αὐτῶν διότι εἶπαν οὐχ ὁρᾷ ὁ κύριος ἐγκαταλέλοιπεν κύριος τὴν γῆν

13 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με ἔτι ὄψει ἀνομίας μείζονας ἃς οὗτοι ποιοῦσιν

14 καὶ εἰσήγαγέν με ἐπὶ τὰ πρόθυρα τῆς πύλης οἴκου κυρίου τῆς βλεπούσης πρὸς βορρᾶν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐκεῖ γυναῖκες καθήμεναι θρηνοῦσαι τὸν Θαμμουζ

15 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ἑώρακας καὶ ἔτι ὄψει ἐπιτηδεύματα μείζονα τούτων

16 καὶ εἰσήγαγέν με εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν οἴκου κυρίου τὴν ἐσωτέραν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ τῶν προθύρων τοῦ ναοῦ κυρίου ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν αιλαμ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου ὡς εἴκοσι ἄνδρες τὰ ὀπίσθια αὐτῶν πρὸς τὸν ναὸν τοῦ κυρίου καὶ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν ἀπέναντι καὶ οὗτοι προσκυνοῦσιν τῷ ἡλίῳ

17 καὶ εἶπεν πρός με ἑώρακας υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου μὴ μικρὰ τῷ οἴκῳ Ιουδα τοῦ ποιεῖν τὰς ἀνομίας ἃς πεποιήκασιν ὧδε διότι ἔπλησαν τὴν γῆν ἀνομίας καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτοὶ ὡς μυκτηρίζοντες

18 καὶ ἐγὼ ποιήσω αὐτοῖς μετὰ θυμοῦ οὐ φείσεται ὁ ὀφθαλμός μου οὐδὲ μὴ ἐλεήσω

1 Et factum est in anno sexto, in sexto mense, in quinta mensis, ego sedebam in domo mea, et senes Juda sedebant coram me, et cecidit ibi super me manus Domini Dei.

2 Et vidi: et ecce similitudo quasi aspectus ignis: ab aspectu lumborum ejus et deorsum, ignis: et a lumbis ejus et sursum, quasi aspectus splendoris, ut visio electri.

3 Et emissa similitudo manus apprehendit me in cincinno capitis mei, et elevavit me spiritus inter terram et cælum: et adduxit me in Jerusalem, in visione Dei, juxta ostium interius quod respiciebat ad aquilonem, ubi erat statutum idolum zeli ad provocandam æmulationem.

4 Et ecce ibi gloria Dei Israël, secundum visionem quam videram in campo.

5 Et dixit ad me: Fili hominis, leva oculos tuos ad viam aquilonis. Et levavi oculos meos ad viam aquilonis, et ecce ab aquilone portæ altaris idolum zeli in ipso introitu.

6 Et dixit ad me: Fili hominis, putasne vides tu quid isti faciunt, abominationes magnas quas domus Israël facit hic, ut procul recedam a sanctuario meo? et adhuc conversus videbis abominationes majores.

7 Et introduxit me ad ostium atrii, et vidi, et ecce foramen unum in pariete.

8 Et dixit ad me: Fili hominis, fode parietem. Et cum fodissem parietem, apparuit ostium unum.

9 Et dixit ad me: Ingredere, et vide abominationes pessimas quas isti faciunt hic.

10 Et ingressus vidi, et ecce omnis similitudo reptilium et animalium, abominatio, et universa idola domus Israël, depicta erant in pariete in circuitu per totum:

11 et septuaginta viri de senioribus domus Israël: et Jezonias filius Saphan stabat in medio eorum stantium ante picturas: et unusquisque habebat thuribulum in manu sua, et vapor nebulæ de thure consurgebat.

12 Et dixit ad me: Certe vides, fili hominis, quæ seniores domus Israël faciunt in tenebris, unusquisque in abscondito cubiculi sui: dicunt enim: Non videt Dominus nos; dereliquit Dominus terram.

13 Et dixit ad me: Adhuc conversus videbis abominationes majores, quas isti faciunt.

14 Et introduxit me per ostium portæ domus Domini quod respiciebat ad aquilonem, et ecce ibi mulieres sedebant plangentes Adonidem.

15 Et dixit ad me: Certe vidisti, fili hominis: adhuc conversus videbis abominationes majores his.

16 Et introduxit me in atrium domus Domini interius, et ecce in ostio templi Domini, inter vestibulum et altare, quasi viginti quinque viri dorsa habentes contra templum Domini, et facies ad orientem: et adorabant ad ortum solis.

17 Et dixit ad me: Certe vidisti, fili hominis: numquid leve est hoc domui Juda, ut facerent abominationes istas quas fecerunt hic, quia replentes terram iniquitate, conversi sunt ad irritandum me? et ecce applicant ramum ad nares suas.

18 Ergo et ego faciam in furore: non parcet oculus meus, nec miserebor: et cum clamaverint ad aures meas voce magna, non exaudiam eos.
