Isaiah 1


1  The vision2377 of Isaiah3470 the son1121 of Amoz,531 which834 he saw2372 concerning5921 Judah3063 and Jerusalem3389 in the days3117 of Uzziah,5818 Jotham,3147 Ahaz,271 and Hezekiah,3169 kings4428 of Judah.3063

2  Hear,8085 O heavens,8064 and give ear,238 O earth:776 for3588 the LORD3068 hath spoken,1696 I have nourished1431 and brought up7311 children,1121 and they1992 have rebelled6586 against me.

3  The ox7794 knoweth3045 his owner,7069 and the ass2543 his master's1167 crib:18 but Israel3478 doth not3808 know,3045 my people5971 doth not3808 consider.995

4  Ah1945 sinful2398 nation,1471 a people5971 laden3515 with iniquity,5771 a seed2233 of evildoers,7489 children1121 that are corrupters:7843 they have forsaken5800 853 the LORD,3068 they have provoked5006 853 the Holy One6918 of Israel3478 unto anger, they are gone away2114 backward.268

5  Why5921 4100 should ye be stricken5221 any more?5750 ye will revolt5627 more and more:3254 the whole3605 head7218 is sick,2483 and the whole3605 heart3824 faint.1742

6  From the sole4480 3709 of the foot7272 even unto5704 the head7218 there is no369 soundness4974 in it; but wounds,6482 and bruises,2250 and putrefying2961 sores:4347 they have not3808 been closed,2115 neither3808 bound up,2280 neither3808 mollified7401 with ointment.8081

7  Your country776 is desolate,8077 your cities5892 are burned8313 with fire:784 your land,127 strangers2114 devour398 it in your presence,5048 and it is desolate,8077 as overthrown4114 by strangers.2114

8  And the daughter1323 of Zion6726 is left3498 as a cottage5521 in a vineyard,3754 as a lodge4412 in a garden of cucumbers,4750 as a besieged5341 city.5892

9  Except3884 the LORD3068 of hosts6635 had left3498 unto us a very small4592 remnant,8300 we should have been1961 as Sodom,5467 and we should have been like1819 unto Gomorrah.6017

10  Hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 ye rulers7101 of Sodom;5467 give ear238 unto the law8451 of our God,430 ye people5971 of Gomorrah.6017

11  To what4100 purpose is the multitude7230 of your sacrifices2077 unto me? saith559 the LORD:3068 I am full7646 of the burnt offerings5930 of rams,352 and the fat2459 of fed beasts;4806 and I delight2654 not3808 in the blood1818 of bullocks,6499 or of lambs,3532 or of he goats.6260

12  When3588 ye come935 to appear7200 before6440 me, who4310 hath required1245 this2063 at your hand,4480 3027 to tread7429 my courts?2691

13  Bring935 no3808 more3254 vain7723 oblations;4503 incense7004 is an abomination8441 unto me; the new moons2320 and sabbaths,7676 the calling7121 of assemblies,4744 I cannot3808 3201 away with; it is iniquity,205 even the solemn meeting.6116

14  Your new moons2320 and your appointed feasts4150 my soul5315 hateth:8130 they are1961 a trouble2960 unto me;5921 I am weary3811 to bear5375 them.

15  And when ye spread forth6566 your hands,3709 I will hide5956 mine eyes5869 from4480 you: yea,1571 when3588 ye make many7235 prayers,8605 I will not369 hear:8085 your hands3027 are full4390 of blood.1818

16  Wash7364 you, make you clean;2135 put away5493 the evil7455 of your doings4611 from before4480 5048 mine eyes;5869 cease2308 to do evil;7489

17  Learn3925 to do well;3190 seek1875 judgment,4941 relieve833 the oppressed,2541 judge8199 the fatherless,3490 plead7378 for the widow.490

18  Come1980 now,4994 and let us reason together,3198 saith559 the LORD:3068 though518 your sins2399 be1961 as scarlet,8144 they shall be as white3835 as snow;7950 though518 they be red119 like crimson,8438 they shall be1961 as wool.6785

19  If518 ye be willing14 and obedient,8085 ye shall eat398 the good2898 of the land:776

20  But if518 ye refuse3985 and rebel,4784 ye shall be devoured398 with the sword:2719 for3588 the mouth6310 of the LORD3068 hath spoken1696 it.

21  How349 is the faithful539 city7151 become1961 a harlot!2181 it was full4392 of judgment;4941 righteousness6664 lodged3885 in it; but now6258 murderers.7523

22  Thy silver3701 is become1961 dross,5509 thy wine5435 mixed4107 with water:4325

23  Thy princes8269 are rebellious,5637 and companions2270 of thieves:1590 every one3605 loveth157 gifts,7810 and followeth after7291 rewards:8021 they judge8199 not3808 the fatherless,3490 neither3808 doth the cause7379 of the widow490 come935 unto413 them.

24  Therefore3651 saith5002 the Lord,113 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the mighty One46 of Israel,3478 Ah,1945 I will ease5162 me of mine adversaries,4480 6862 and avenge5358 me of mine enemies:4480 341

25  And I will turn7725 my hand3027 upon5921 thee, and purely1252 purge away6884 thy dross,5509 and take away5493 all3605 thy tin:913

26  And I will restore7725 thy judges8199 as at the first,7223 and thy counselors3289 as at the beginning:8462 afterward310 3651 thou shalt be called,7121 The city5892 of righteousness,6664 the faithful539 city.7151

27  Zion6726 shall be redeemed6299 with judgment,4941 and her converts7725 with righteousness.6666

28  And the destruction7667 of the transgressors6586 and of the sinners2400 shall be together,3162 and they that forsake5800 the LORD3068 shall be consumed.3615

29  For3588 they shall be ashamed954 of the oaks4480 352 which834 ye have desired,2530 and ye shall be confounded2659 for the gardens4480 1593 that834 ye have chosen.977

30  For3588 ye shall be1961 as an oak424 whose leaf5929 fadeth,5034 and as a garden1593 that834 hath no369 water.4325

31  And the strong2634 shall be1961 as tow,5296 and the maker6467 of it as a spark,5213 and they shall both8147 burn1197 together,3162 and none369 shall quench3518 them.


1 ὅρασις ἣν εἶδεν Ησαιας υἱὸς Αμως ἣν εἶδεν κατὰ τῆς Ιουδαίας καὶ κατὰ Ιερουσαλημ ἐν βασιλείᾳ Οζιου καὶ Ιωαθαμ καὶ Αχαζ καὶ Εζεκιου οἳ ἐβασίλευσαν τῆς Ιουδαίας

2 ἄκουε οὐρανέ καὶ ἐνωτίζου γῆ ὅτι κύριος ἐλάλησεν υἱοὺς ἐγέννησα καὶ ὕψωσα αὐτοὶ δέ με ἠθέτησαν

3 ἔγνω βοῦς τὸν κτησάμενον καὶ ὄνος τὴν φάτνην τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ Ισραηλ δέ με οὐκ ἔγνω καὶ ὁ λαός με οὐ συνῆκεν

4 οὐαὶ ἔθνος ἁμαρτωλόν λαὸς πλήρης ἁμαρτιῶν σπέρμα πονηρόν υἱοὶ ἄνομοι ἐγκατελίπατε τὸν κύριον καὶ παρωργίσατε τὸν ἅγιον τοῦ Ισραηλ

5 τί ἔτι πληγῆτε προστιθέντες ἀνομίαν πᾶσα κεφαλὴ εἰς πόνον καὶ πᾶσα καρδία εἰς λύπην

6 ἀπὸ ποδῶν ἕως κεφαλῆς οὔτε τραῦμα οὔτε μώλωψ οὔτε πληγὴ φλεγμαίνουσα οὐκ ἔστιν μάλαγμα ἐπιθεῖναι οὔτε ἔλαιον οὔτε καταδέσμους

7 ἡ γῆ ὑμῶν ἔρημος αἱ πόλεις ὑμῶν πυρίκαυστοι τὴν χώραν ὑμῶν ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν ἀλλότριοι κατεσθίουσιν αὐτήν καὶ ἠρήμωται κατεστραμμένη ὑπὸ λαῶν ἀλλοτρίων

8 ἐγκαταλειφθήσεται ἡ θυγάτηρ Σιων ὡς σκηνὴ ἐν ἀμπελῶνι καὶ ὡς ὀπωροφυλάκιον ἐν σικυηράτῳ ὡς πόλις πολιορκουμένη

9 καὶ εἰ μὴ κύριος σαβαωθ ἐγκατέλιπεν ἡμῖν σπέρμα ὡς Σοδομα ἂν ἐγενήθημεν καὶ ὡς Γομορρα ἂν ὡμοιώθημεν

10 ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου ἄρχοντες Σοδομων προσέχετε νόμον θεοῦ λαὸς Γομορρας

11 τί μοι πλῆθος τῶν θυσιῶν ὑμῶν λέγει κύριος πλήρης εἰμὶ ὁλοκαυτωμάτων κριῶν καὶ στέαρ ἀρνῶν καὶ αἷμα ταύρων καὶ τράγων οὐ βούλομαι

12 οὐδ᾽ ἐὰν ἔρχησθε ὀφθῆναί μοι τίς γὰρ ἐξεζήτησεν ταῦτα ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν πατεῖν τὴν αὐλήν μου

13 οὐ προσθήσεσθε ἐὰν φέρητε σεμίδαλιν μάταιον θυμίαμα βδέλυγμά μοί ἐστιν τὰς νουμηνίας ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ σάββατα καὶ ἡμέραν μεγάλην οὐκ ἀνέχομαι νηστείαν καὶ ἀργίαν

14 καὶ τὰς νουμηνίας ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς ἑορτὰς ὑμῶν μισεῖ ἡ ψυχή μου ἐγενήθητέ μοι εἰς πλησμονήν οὐκέτι ἀνήσω τὰς ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν

15 ὅταν τὰς χεῖρας ἐκτείνητε πρός με ἀποστρέψω τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐὰν πληθύνητε τὴν δέησιν οὐκ εἰσακούσομαι ὑμῶν αἱ γὰρ χεῖρες ὑμῶν αἵματος πλήρεις

16 λούσασθε καθαροὶ γένεσθε ἀφέλετε τὰς πονηρίας ἀπὸ τῶν ψυχῶν ὑμῶν ἀπέναντι τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν μου παύσασθε ἀπὸ τῶν πονηριῶν ὑμῶν

17 μάθετε καλὸν ποιεῖν ἐκζητήσατε κρίσιν ῥύσασθε ἀδικούμενον κρίνατε ὀρφανῷ καὶ δικαιώσατε χήραν

18 καὶ δεῦτε καὶ διελεγχθῶμεν λέγει κύριος καὶ ἐὰν ὦσιν αἱ ἁμαρτίαι ὑμῶν ὡς φοινικοῦν ὡς χιόνα λευκανῶ ἐὰν δὲ ὦσιν ὡς κόκκινον ὡς ἔριον λευκανῶ

19 καὶ ἐὰν θέλητε καὶ εἰσακούσητέ μου τὰ ἀγαθὰ τῆς γῆς φάγεσθε

20 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ θέλητε μηδὲ εἰσακούσητέ μου μάχαιρα ὑμᾶς κατέδεται τὸ γὰρ στόμα κυρίου ἐλάλησεν ταῦτα

21 πῶς ἐγένετο πόρνη πόλις πιστὴ Σιων πλήρης κρίσεως ἐν ᾗ δικαιοσύνη ἐκοιμήθη ἐν αὐτῇ νῦν δὲ φονευταί

22 τὸ ἀργύριον ὑμῶν ἀδόκιμον οἱ κάπηλοί σου μίσγουσι τὸν οἶνον ὕδατι

23 οἱ ἄρχοντές σου ἀπειθοῦσιν κοινωνοὶ κλεπτῶν ἀγαπῶντες δῶρα διώκοντες ἀνταπόδομα ὀρφανοῖς οὐ κρίνοντες καὶ κρίσιν χηρῶν οὐ προσέχοντες

24 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει ὁ δεσπότης κύριος σαβαωθ οὐαὶ οἱ ἰσχύοντες Ισραηλ οὐ παύσεται γάρ μου ὁ θυμὸς ἐν τοῖς ὑπεναντίοις καὶ κρίσιν ἐκ τῶν ἐχθρῶν μου ποιήσω

25 καὶ ἐπάξω τὴν χεῖρά μου ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ πυρώσω σε εἰς καθαρόν τοὺς δὲ ἀπειθοῦντας ἀπολέσω καὶ ἀφελῶ πάντας ἀνόμους ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ πάντας ὑπερηφάνους ταπεινώσω

26 καὶ ἐπιστήσω τοὺς κριτάς σου ὡς τὸ πρότερον καὶ τοὺς συμβούλους σου ὡς τὸ ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα κληθήσῃ πόλις δικαιοσύνης μητρόπολις πιστὴ Σιων

27 μετὰ γὰρ κρίματος σωθήσεται ἡ αἰχμαλωσία αὐτῆς καὶ μετὰ ἐλεημοσύνης

28 καὶ συντριβήσονται οἱ ἄνομοι καὶ οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἅμα καὶ οἱ ἐγκαταλείποντες τὸν κύριον συντελεσθήσονται

29 διότι αἰσχυνθήσονται ἐπὶ τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν ἃ αὐτοὶ ἠβούλοντο καὶ ἐπῃσχύνθησαν ἐπὶ τοῖς κήποις αὐτῶν ἃ ἐπεθύμησαν

30 ἔσονται γὰρ ὡς τερέβινθος ἀποβεβληκυῖα τὰ φύλλα καὶ ὡς παράδεισος ὕδωρ μὴ ἔχων

31 καὶ ἔσται ἡ ἰσχὺς αὐτῶν ὡς καλάμη στιππύου καὶ αἱ ἐργασίαι αὐτῶν ὡς σπινθῆρες πυρός καὶ κατακαυθήσονται οἱ ἄνομοι καὶ οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἅμα καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ σβέσων

1 Visio Isaiæ, filii Amos, quam vidit super Judam et Jerusalem, in diebus Oziæ, Joathan, Achaz, et Ezechiæ, regum Juda.

2 [Audite, cæli, et auribus percipe, terra,
quoniam Dominus locutus est.
Filios enutrivi, et exaltavi;
ipsi autem spreverunt me.

3 Cognovit bos possessorem suum,
et asinus præsepe domini sui;
Israël autem me non cognovit,
et populus meus non intellexit.

4 Væ genti peccatrici,
populo gravi iniquitate,
semini nequam, filiis sceleratis!
dereliquerunt Dominum;
blasphemaverunt Sanctum Israël;
abalienati sunt retrorsum.

5 Super quo percutiam vos ultra, addentes prævaricationem?
omne caput languidum,
et omne cor mœrens.

6 A planta pedis usque ad verticem,
non est in eo sanitas;
vulnus, et livor, et plaga tumens,
non est circumligata, nec curata medicamine,
neque fota oleo.

7 Terra vestra deserta;
civitates vestræ succensæ igni:
regionem vestram coram vobis alieni devorant,
et desolabitur sicut in vastitate hostili.

8 Et derelinquetur filia Sion
ut umbraculum in vinea,
et sicut tugurium in cucumerario,
et sicut civitas quæ vastatur.

9 Nisi Dominus exercituum
reliquisset nobis semen,
quasi Sodoma fuissemus,
et quasi Gomorrha similes essemus.

10 Audite verbum Domini,
principes Sodomorum;
percipite auribus legem Dei nostri,
populus Gomorrhæ.

11 Quo mihi multitudinem victimarum vestrarum?
dicit Dominus.
Plenus sum:
holocausta arietum,
et adipem pinguium,
et sanguinem vitulorum et agnorum et hircorum,

12 Cum veniretis ante conspectum meum,
quis quæsivit hæc de manibus vestris,
ut ambularetis in atriis meis?

13 Ne offeratis ultra sacrificium frustra:
incensum abominatio est mihi.
Neomeniam et sabbatum, et festivitates alias, non feram;
iniqui sunt cœtus vestri.

14 Calendas vestras, et solemnitates vestras odivit anima mea:
facta sunt mihi molesta; laboravi sustinens.

15 Et cum extenderitis manus vestras, avertam oculos meos a vobis,
et cum multiplicaveritis orationem, non exaudiam:
manus enim vestræ sanguine plenæ sunt.

16 Lavamini, mundi estote;
auferte malum cogitationum vestrarum
ab oculis meis:
quiescite agere perverse,

17 discite benefacere;
quærite judicium, subvenite oppresso,
judicate pupillo, defendite viduam.]

18 [Et venite, et arguite me, dicit Dominus.
Si fuerint peccata vestra ut coccinum,
quasi nix dealbabuntur;
et si fuerint rubra quasi vermiculus,
velut lana alba erunt.

19 Si volueritis, et audieritis me,
bona terræ comeditis.

20 Quod si nolueritis, et me ad iracundiam provocaveritis,
gladius devorabit vos,
quia os Domini locutum est.

21 Quomodo facta est meretrix
civitas fidelis, plena judicii?
justitia habitavit in ea,
nunc autem homicidæ.

22 Argentum tuum versum est in scoriam;
vinum tuum mistum est aqua.

23 Principes tui infideles,
socii furum.
Omnes diligunt munera,
sequuntur retributiones.
Pupillo non judicant,
et causa viduæ non ingreditur ad illos.

24 Propter hoc ait Dominus,
Deus exercituum, Fortis Israël:
Heu! consolabor super hostibus meis,
et vindicabor de inimicis meis.

25 Et convertam manum meam ad te,
et excoquam ad puram scoriam tuam,
et auferam omne stannum tuum.

26 Et restituam judices tuos ut fuerunt prius,
et consiliarios tuos sicut antiquitus;
post hæc vocaberis civitas justi,
urbs fidelis.

27 Sion in judicio redimetur,
et reducent eam in justitia.

28 Et conteret scelestos, et peccatores simul;
et qui dereliquerunt Dominum consumentur.

29 Confundentur enim ab idolis quibus sacrificaverunt,
et erubescetis super hortis quos elegeratis,

30 cum fueritis velut quercus defluentibus foliis,
et velut hortus absque aqua.

31 Et erit fortitudo vestra ut favilla stuppæ,
et opus vestrum quasi scintilla,
et succendetur utrumque simul,
et non erit qui extinguat.]
