Isaiah 3


1  For,3588 behold,2009 the Lord,113 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 doth take away5493 from Jerusalem4480 3389 and from Judah4480 3063 the stay4937 and the staff,4938 the whole3605 stay4937 of bread,3899 and the whole3605 stay4937 of water,4325

2  The mighty1368 man, and the man376 of war,4421 the judge,8199 and the prophet,5030 and the prudent,7080 and the ancient,2205

3  The captain8269 of fifty,2572 and the honorable man,5375 6440 and the counselor,3289 and the cunning2450 artificer,2796 and the eloquent995 orator.3908

4  And I will give5414 children5288 to be their princes,8269 and babes8586 shall rule4910 over them.

5  And the people5971 shall be oppressed,5065 every one376 by another,376 and every one376 by his neighbor:7453 the child5288 shall behave himself proudly7292 against the ancient,2205 and the base7034 against the honorable.3513

6  When3588 a man376 shall take hold8610 of his brother251 of the house1004 of his father,1 saying, Thou hast clothing,8071 be1961 thou our ruler,7101 and let this2063 ruin4384 be under8478 thy hand:3027

7  In that1931 day3117 shall he swear,5375 saying,559 I will not3808 be1961 a healer;2280 for in my house1004 is neither369 bread3899 nor369 clothing:8071 make7760 me not3808 a ruler7101 of the people.5971

8  For3588 Jerusalem3389 is ruined,3782 and Judah3063 is fallen:5307 because3588 their tongue3956 and their doings4611 are against413 the LORD,3068 to provoke4784 the eyes5869 of his glory.3519

9  The show1971 of their countenance6440 doth witness6030 against them; and they declare5046 their sin2403 as Sodom,5467 they hide3582 it not.3808 Woe188 unto their soul!5315 for3588 they have rewarded1580 evil7451 unto themselves.

10  Say559 ye to the righteous,6662 that3588 it shall be well2895 with him: for3588 they shall eat398 the fruit6529 of their doings.4611

11  Woe188 unto the wicked!7563 it shall be ill7451 with him: for3588 the reward1576 of his hands3027 shall be given6213 him.

12  As for my people,5971 children5768 are their oppressors,5065 and women802 rule4910 over them. O my people,5971 they which lead833 thee cause thee to err,8582 and destroy1104 the way1870 of thy paths.734

13  The LORD3068 standeth up5324 to plead,7378 and standeth5975 to judge1777 the people.5971

14  The LORD3068 will enter935 into judgment4941 with5973 the ancients2205 of his people,5971 and the princes8269 thereof: for ye859 have eaten up1197 the vineyard;3754 the spoil1500 of the poor6041 is in your houses.1004

15  What mean ye4100 that ye beat my people to pieces,1792 5971 and grind2912 the faces6440 of the poor?6041 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD3068 of hosts.6635

16  Moreover the LORD3068 saith,559 Because3282 3588 the daughters1323 of Zion6726 are haughty,1361 and walk1980 with stretched forth5186 necks1627 and wanton8265 eyes,5869 walking1980 and mincing2952 as they go,1980 and making a tinkling5913 with their feet:7272

17  Therefore the Lord136 will smite with a scab5596 the crown of the head6936 of the daughters1323 of Zion,6726 and the LORD3068 will discover6168 their secret parts.6596

18  In that1931 day3117 the Lord136 will take away5493 853 the bravery8597 of their tinkling ornaments5914 about their feet, and their cauls,7636 and their round tires7720 like the moon,

19  The chains,5188 and the bracelets,8285 and the mufflers,7479

20  The bonnets,6287 and the ornaments of the legs,6807 and the headbands,7196 and the tablets,1004 5315 and the earrings,3908

21  The rings,2885 and nose639 jewels,5141

22  The changeable suits of apparel,4254 and the mantles,4595 and the wimples,4304 and the crisping pins,2754

23  The glasses,1549 and the fine linen,5466 and the hoods,6797 and the veils.7289

24  And it shall come to pass,1961 that instead8478 of sweet smell1314 there shall be1961 stink;4716 and instead8478 of a girdle2290 a rent;5364 and instead8478 of well set4639 hair4748 baldness;7144 and instead8478 of a stomacher6614 a girding4228 of sackcloth;8242 and burning3587 instead8478 of beauty.3308

25  Thy men4962 shall fall5307 by the sword,2719 and thy mighty1369 in the war.4421

26  And her gates6607 shall lament578 and mourn;56 and she being desolate5352 shall sit3427 upon the ground.776


1 ἰδοὺ δὴ ὁ δεσπότης κύριος σαβαωθ ἀφελεῖ ἀπὸ τῆς Ιουδαίας καὶ ἀπὸ Ιερουσαλημ ἰσχύοντα καὶ ἰσχύουσαν ἰσχὺν ἄρτου καὶ ἰσχὺν ὕδατος

2 γίγαντα καὶ ἰσχύοντα καὶ ἄνθρωπον πολεμιστὴν καὶ δικαστὴν καὶ προφήτην καὶ στοχαστὴν καὶ πρεσβύτερον

3 καὶ πεντηκόνταρχον καὶ θαυμαστὸν σύμβουλον καὶ σοφὸν ἀρχιτέκτονα καὶ συνετὸν ἀκροατήν

4 καὶ ἐπιστήσω νεανίσκους ἄρχοντας αὐτῶν καὶ ἐμπαῖκται κυριεύσουσιν αὐτῶν

5 καὶ συμπεσεῖται ὁ λαός ἄνθρωπος πρὸς ἄνθρωπον καὶ ἄνθρωπος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ προσκόψει τὸ παιδίον πρὸς τὸν πρεσβύτην ὁ ἄτιμος πρὸς τὸν ἔντιμον

6 ὅτι ἐπιλήμψεται ἄνθρωπος τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ ἢ τοῦ οἰκείου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ λέγων ἱμάτιον ἔχεις ἀρχηγὸς ἡμῶν γενοῦ καὶ τὸ βρῶμα τὸ ἐμὸν ὑπὸ σὲ ἔστω

7 καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ἐρεῖ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ οὐκ ἔσομαί σου ἀρχηγός οὐ γὰρ ἔστιν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ μου ἄρτος οὐδὲ ἱμάτιον οὐκ ἔσομαι ἀρχηγὸς τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου

8 ὅτι ἀνεῖται Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἡ Ιουδαία συμπέπτωκεν καὶ αἱ γλῶσσαι αὐτῶν μετὰ ἀνομίας τὰ πρὸς κύριον ἀπειθοῦντες διότι νῦν ἐταπεινώθη ἡ δόξα αὐτῶν

9 καὶ ἡ αἰσχύνη τοῦ προσώπου αὐτῶν ἀντέστη αὐτοῖς τὴν δὲ ἁμαρτίαν αὐτῶν ὡς Σοδομων ἀνήγγειλαν καὶ ἐνεφάνισαν οὐαὶ τῇ ψυχῇ αὐτῶν διότι βεβούλευνται βουλὴν πονηρὰν καθ᾽ ἑαυτῶν

10 εἰπόντες δήσωμεν τὸν δίκαιον ὅτι δύσχρηστος ἡμῖν ἐστιν τοίνυν τὰ γενήματα τῶν ἔργων αὐτῶν φάγονται

11 οὐαὶ τῷ ἀνόμῳ πονηρὰ κατὰ τὰ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ συμβήσεται αὐτῷ

12 λαός μου οἱ πράκτορες ὑμῶν καλαμῶνται ὑμᾶς καὶ οἱ ἀπαιτοῦντες κυριεύουσιν ὑμῶν λαός μου οἱ μακαρίζοντες ὑμᾶς πλανῶσιν ὑμᾶς καὶ τὸν τρίβον τῶν ποδῶν ὑμῶν ταράσσουσιν

13 ἀλλὰ νῦν καταστήσεται εἰς κρίσιν κύριος καὶ στήσει εἰς κρίσιν τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ

14 αὐτὸς κύριος εἰς κρίσιν ἥξει μετὰ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ μετὰ τῶν ἀρχόντων αὐτοῦ ὑμεῖς δὲ τί ἐνεπυρίσατε τὸν ἀμπελῶνά μου καὶ ἡ ἁρπαγὴ τοῦ πτωχοῦ ἐν τοῖς οἴκοις ὑμῶν

15 τί ὑμεῖς ἀδικεῖτε τὸν λαόν μου καὶ τὸ πρόσωπον τῶν πτωχῶν καταισχύνετε

16 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὑψώθησαν αἱ θυγατέρες Σιων καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὑψηλῷ τραχήλῳ καὶ ἐν νεύμασιν ὀφθαλμῶν καὶ τῇ πορείᾳ τῶν ποδῶν ἅμα σύρουσαι τοὺς χιτῶνας καὶ τοῖς ποσὶν ἅμα παίζουσαι

17 καὶ ταπεινώσει ὁ θεὸς ἀρχούσας θυγατέρας Σιων καὶ κύριος ἀποκαλύψει τὸ σχῆμα αὐτῶν

18 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἀφελεῖ κύριος τὴν δόξαν τοῦ ἱματισμοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς κόσμους αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ἐμπλόκια καὶ τοὺς κοσύμβους καὶ τοὺς μηνίσκους

19 καὶ τὸ κάθεμα καὶ τὸν κόσμον τοῦ προσώπου αὐτῶν

20 καὶ τὴν σύνθεσιν τοῦ κόσμου τῆς δόξης καὶ τοὺς χλιδῶνας καὶ τὰ ψέλια καὶ τὸ ἐμπλόκιον καὶ τὰ περιδέξια καὶ τοὺς δακτυλίους καὶ τὰ ἐνώτια

21 καὶ τὰ περιπόρφυρα καὶ τὰ μεσοπόρφυρα

22 καὶ τὰ ἐπιβλήματα τὰ κατὰ τὴν οἰκίαν καὶ τὰ διαφανῆ λακωνικὰ

23 καὶ τὰ βύσσινα καὶ τὰ ὑακίνθινα καὶ τὰ κόκκινα καὶ τὴν βύσσον σὺν χρυσίῳ καὶ ὑακίνθῳ συγκαθυφασμένα καὶ θέριστρα κατάκλιτα

24 καὶ ἔσται ἀντὶ ὀσμῆς ἡδείας κονιορτός καὶ ἀντὶ ζώνης σχοινίῳ ζώσῃ καὶ ἀντὶ τοῦ κόσμου τῆς κεφαλῆς τοῦ χρυσίου φαλάκρωμα ἕξεις διὰ τὰ ἔργα σου καὶ ἀντὶ τοῦ χιτῶνος τοῦ μεσοπορφύρου περιζώσῃ σάκκον

25 καὶ ὁ υἱός σου ὁ κάλλιστος ὃν ἀγαπᾷς μαχαίρᾳ πεσεῖται καὶ οἱ ἰσχύοντες ὑμῶν μαχαίρᾳ πεσοῦνται

26 καὶ ταπεινωθήσονται καὶ πενθήσουσιν αἱ θῆκαι τοῦ κόσμου ὑμῶν καὶ καταλειφθήσῃ μόνη καὶ εἰς τὴν γῆν ἐδαφισθήσῃ

1 [Ecce enim Dominator, Dominus exercituum,
auferet a Jerusalem et a Juda
validum et fortem,
omne robur panis, et omne robor aquæ;

2 fortem, et virum bellatorem,
judicem, et prophetam, et ariolum, et senem;

3 principem super quinquaginta, et honorabilem vultu et consiliarium,
et sapientem de architectis, et prudentem eloquii mystici.

4 Et dabo pueros principes eorum,
et effeminati dominabuntur eis;

5 et irruet populus, vir ad virum,
et unusquisque ad proximum suum;
tumultuabitur puer contra senem,
et ignobilis contra nobilem.

6 Apprehendet enim vir fratrem suum,
domesticum patris sui:
Vestimentum tibi est, princeps esto noster,
ruina autem hæc sub manu tua.

7 Respondebit in die illa, dicens:
Non sum medicus,
et in domo mea non est panis neque vestimentum:
nolite constituere me principem populi.

8 Ruit enim Jerusalem, et Judas concidit,
quia lingua eorum et adinventiones eorum contra Dominum,
ut provocarent oculos majestatis ejus.

9 Agnitio vultus eorum respondit eis;
et peccatum suum quasi Sodoma prædicaverunt, nec absconderunt.
Væ animæ eorum, quoniam reddita sunt eis mala!

10 Dicite justo quoniam bene,
quoniam fructum adinventionum suarum comedet.

11 Væ impio in malum!
retributio enim manuum ejus fiet ei.

12 Populum meum exactores sui spoliaverunt,
et mulieres dominatæ sunt eis.
Popule meus, qui te beatum dicunt, ipsi te decipiunt,
et viam gressuum tuorum dissipant.

13 Stat ad judicandum Dominus,
et stat ad judicandos populos.

14 Dominus ad judicium veniet
cum senibus populi sui, et principibus ejus;
vos enim depasti estis vineam,
et rapina pauperis in domo vestra.

15 Quare atteritis populum meum,
et facies pauperum commolitis?
dicit Dominus exercituum.]

16 [Et dixit Dominus:
Pro eo quod elevatæ sunt filiæ Sion,
et ambulaverunt extento collo,
et nutibus oculorum ibant,
et plaudebant, ambulabant pedibus suis,
et composito gradu incedebant;

17 decalvabit Dominus verticem filiarum Sion,
et Dominus crimen earum nudabit.

18 In die illa auferet Dominus ornamentum calceamentum,

19 et lunulas, et torques,
et monilia, et armillas, et mitras,

20 et discriminalia, et periscelidas, et murenulas,
et olfactoriola, et inaures,

21 et annulos, et gemmas in fronte pendentes,

22 et mutatoria, et palliola,
et linteamina, et acus,

23 et specula, et sindones,
et vittas, et theristra.

24 Et erit pro suavi odore fœtor,
et pro zona funiculus,
et pro crispanti crine calvitium,
et pro fascia pectorali cilicium.

25 Pulcherrimi quoque viri tui gladio cadent,
et fortes tui in prælio.

26 Et mœrebunt atque lugebunt portæ ejus,
et desolata in terra sedebit.]
