Isaiah 8


1  Moreover the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Take3947 thee a great1419 roll,1549 and write3789 in5921 it with a man's582 pen2747 concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.4122

2  And I took unto me faithful539 witnesses5707 to record,5749 853 Uriah223 the priest,3548 and Zechariah2148 the son1121 of Jeberechiah.3000

3  And I went7126 unto413 the prophetess;5031 and she conceived,2029 and bore3205 a son.1121 Then said559 the LORD3068 to413 me, Call7121 his name8034 Maher-shalal-hash-baz.4122

4  For3588 before2962 the child5288 shall have knowledge3045 to cry,7121 My father,1 and my mother,517 853 the riches2428 of Damascus1834 and the spoil7998 of Samaria8111 shall be taken away5375 before6440 the king4428 of Assyria.804

5  The LORD3068 spoke1696 also unto413 me again,3254 saying,559

6  Forasmuch3282 3588 as this2088 people5971 refuseth3988 853 the waters4325 of Shiloah7975 that go1980 softly,328 and rejoice in4885 853 Rezin7526 and Remaliah's7425 son;1121

7  Now therefore,3651 behold,2009 the Lord136 bringeth up5927 upon5921 them 853 the waters4325 of the river,5104 strong6099 and many,7227 even 853 the king4428 of Assyria,804 and all3605 his glory:3519 and he shall come up5927 over5921 all3605 his channels,650 and go1980 over5921 all3605 his banks:1415

8  And he shall pass2498 through Judah;3063 he shall overflow7857 and go over,5674 he shall reach5060 even to5704 the neck;6677 and the stretching out4298 of his wings3671 shall fill4393 the breadth7341 of thy land,776 O Immanuel.6005

9  Associate7489 yourselves, O ye people,5971 and ye shall be broken2844 in pieces; and give ear,238 all3605 ye of far4801 countries:776 gird yourselves,247 and ye shall be broken2844 in pieces; gird yourselves,247 and ye shall be broken2844 in pieces.

10  Take counsel together5779 6098 and it shall come to naught;6565 speak1696 the word,1697 and it shall not3808 stand:6965 for3588 God410 is with us.5973

11  For3588 the LORD3068 spoke559 thus3541 to413 me with a strong2393 hand,3027 and instructed3256 me that I should not walk4480 1980 in the way1870 of this2088 people,5971 saying,559

12  Say559 ye not,3808 A confederacy,7195 to all3605 them to whom834 this2088 people5971 shall say,559 A confederacy;7195 neither3808 fear3372 ye their fear,4172 nor3808 be afraid.6206

13  Sanctify6942 853 the LORD3068 of hosts6635 himself; and let him1931 be your fear,4172 and let him1931 be your dread.6206

14  And he shall be1961 for a sanctuary;4720 but for a stone68 of stumbling5063 and for a rock6697 of offense4383 to both8147 the houses1004 of Israel,3478 for a gin6341 and for a snare4170 to the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem.3389

15  And many7227 among them shall stumble,3782 and fall,5307 and be broken,7665 and be snared,3369 and be taken.3920

16  Bind up6887 the testimony,8584 seal2856 the law8451 among my disciples.3928

17  And I will wait2442 upon the LORD,3068 that hideth5641 his face6440 from the house4480 1004 of Jacob,3290 and I will look6960 for him.

18  Behold,2009 I595 and the children3206 whom834 the LORD3068 hath given5414 me are for signs226 and for wonders4159 in Israel3478 from4480 5973 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 which dwelleth7931 in mount2022 Zion.6726

19  And when3588 they shall say559 unto413 you, Seek1875 unto413 them that have familiar spirits,178 and unto413 wizards3049 that peep,6850 and that mutter:1897 should not3808 a people5971 seek1875 unto413 their God?430 for1157 the living2416 to413 the dead?4191

20  To the law8451 and to the testimony:8584 if518 they speak559 not3808 according to this2088 word,1697 it is because834 there is no369 light7837 in them.

21  And they shall pass5674 through it, hard pressed7185 and hungry:745 and it shall come to pass,1961 that when3588 they shall be hungry,7456 they shall fret themselves,7107 and curse7043 their king4428 and their God,430 and look6437 upward.4605

22  And they shall look5027 unto413 the earth;776 and behold2009 trouble6869 and darkness,2825 dimness4588 of anguish;6695 and they shall be driven5080 to darkness.653


1 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με λαβὲ σεαυτῷ τόμον καινοῦ μεγάλου καὶ γράψον εἰς αὐτὸν γραφίδι ἀνθρώπου τοῦ ὀξέως προνομὴν ποιῆσαι σκύλων πάρεστιν γάρ

2 καὶ μάρτυράς μοι ποίησον πιστοὺς ἀνθρώπους τὸν Ουριαν καὶ τὸν Ζαχαριαν υἱὸν Βαραχιου

3 καὶ προσῆλθον πρὸς τὴν προφῆτιν καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱόν καὶ εἶπεν κύριός μοι κάλεσον τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ταχέως σκύλευσον ὀξέως προνόμευσον

4 διότι πρὶν ἢ γνῶναι τὸ παιδίον καλεῖν πατέρα ἢ μητέρα λήμψεται δύναμιν Δαμασκοῦ καὶ τὰ σκῦλα Σαμαρείας ἔναντι βασιλέως Ἀσσυρίων

5 καὶ προσέθετο κύριος λαλῆσαί μοι ἔτι

6 διὰ τὸ μὴ βούλεσθαι τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον τὸ ὕδωρ τοῦ Σιλωαμ τὸ πορευόμενον ἡσυχῇ ἀλλὰ βούλεσθαι ἔχειν τὸν Ραασσων καὶ τὸν υἱὸν Ρομελιου βασιλέα ἐφ᾽ ὑμῶν

7 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἀνάγει κύριος ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς τὸ ὕδωρ τοῦ ποταμοῦ τὸ ἰσχυρὸν καὶ τὸ πολύ τὸν βασιλέα τῶν Ἀσσυρίων καὶ τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναβήσεται ἐπὶ πᾶσαν φάραγγα ὑμῶν καὶ περιπατήσει ἐπὶ πᾶν τεῖχος ὑμῶν

8 καὶ ἀφελεῖ ἀπὸ τῆς Ιουδαίας ἄνθρωπον ὃς δυνήσεται κεφαλὴν ἆραι ἢ δυνατὸν συντελέσασθαί τι καὶ ἔσται ἡ παρεμβολὴ αὐτοῦ ὥστε πληρῶσαι τὸ πλάτος τῆς χώρας σου μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν ὁ θεός

9 γνῶτε ἔθνη καὶ ἡττᾶσθε ἐπακούσατε ἕως ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς ἰσχυκότες ἡττᾶσθε ἐὰν γὰρ πάλιν ἰσχύσητε πάλιν ἡττηθήσεσθε

10 καὶ ἣν ἂν βουλεύσησθε βουλήν διασκεδάσει κύριος καὶ λόγον ὃν ἐὰν λαλήσητε οὐ μὴ ἐμμείνῃ ὑμῖν ὅτι μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν κύριος ὁ θεός

11 οὕτως λέγει κύριος τῇ ἰσχυρᾷ χειρὶ ἀπειθοῦσιν τῇ πορείᾳ τῆς ὁδοῦ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου λέγοντες

12 μήποτε εἴπητε σκληρόν πᾶν γάρ ὃ ἐὰν εἴπῃ ὁ λαὸς οὗτος σκληρόν ἐστιν τὸν δὲ φόβον αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ φοβηθῆτε οὐδὲ μὴ ταραχθῆτε

13 κύριον αὐτὸν ἁγιάσατε καὶ αὐτὸς ἔσται σου φόβος

14 καὶ ἐὰν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ πεποιθὼς ᾖς ἔσται σοι εἰς ἁγίασμα καὶ οὐχ ὡς λίθου προσκόμματι συναντήσεσθε αὐτῷ οὐδὲ ὡς πέτρας πτώματι ὁ δὲ οἶκος Ιακωβ ἐν παγίδι καὶ ἐν κοιλάσματι ἐγκαθήμενοι ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

15 διὰ τοῦτο ἀδυνατήσουσιν ἐν αὐτοῖς πολλοὶ καὶ πεσοῦνται καὶ συντριβήσονται καὶ ἐγγιοῦσιν καὶ ἁλώσονται ἄνθρωποι ἐν ἀσφαλείᾳ ὄντες

16 τότε φανεροὶ ἔσονται οἱ σφραγιζόμενοι τὸν νόμον τοῦ μὴ μαθεῖν

17 καὶ ἐρεῖ μενῶ τὸν θεὸν τὸν ἀποστρέψαντα τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ οἴκου Ιακωβ καὶ πεποιθὼς ἔσομαι ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ

18 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ καὶ τὰ παιδία ἅ μοι ἔδωκεν ὁ θεός καὶ ἔσται εἰς σημεῖα καὶ τέρατα ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ παρὰ κυρίου σαβαωθ ὃς κατοικεῖ ἐν τῷ ὄρει Σιων

19 καὶ ἐὰν εἴπωσιν πρὸς ὑμᾶς ζητήσατε τοὺς ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς φωνοῦντας καὶ τοὺς ἐγγαστριμύθους τοὺς κενολογοῦντας οἳ ἐκ τῆς κοιλίας φωνοῦσιν οὐκ ἔθνος πρὸς θεὸν αὐτοῦ τί ἐκζητοῦσιν περὶ τῶν ζώντων τοὺς νεκρούς

20 νόμον γὰρ εἰς βοήθειαν ἔδωκεν ἵνα εἴπωσιν οὐχ ὡς τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο περὶ οὗ οὐκ ἔστιν δῶρα δοῦναι περὶ αὐτοῦ

21 καὶ ἥξει ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς σκληρὰ λιμός καὶ ἔσται ὡς ἂν πεινάσητε λυπηθήσεσθε καὶ κακῶς ἐρεῖτε τὸν ἄρχοντα καὶ τὰ παταχρα καὶ ἀναβλέψονται εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν ἄνω

22 καὶ εἰς τὴν γῆν κάτω ἐμβλέψονται καὶ ἰδοὺ θλῖψις καὶ στενοχωρία καὶ σκότος ἀπορία στενὴ καὶ σκότος ὥστε μὴ βλέπειν

23 καὶ οὐκ ἀπορηθήσεται ὁ ἐν στενοχωρίᾳ ὢν ἕως καιροῦ τοῦτο πρῶτον ποίει ταχὺ ποίει χώρα Ζαβουλων ἡ γῆ Νεφθαλιμ ὁδὸν θαλάσσης καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ οἱ τὴν παραλίαν κατοικοῦντες καὶ πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου Γαλιλαία τῶν ἐθνῶν τὰ μέρη τῆς Ιουδαίας

1 Et dixit Dominus ad me: Sume tibi librum grandem, et scribe in eo stylo hominis: Velociter spolia detrahe, cito prædare.

2 Et adhibui mihi testes fideles, Uriam sacerdotem, et Zachariam, filium Barachiæ:

3 et accessi ad prophetissam, et concepit, et peperit filium. Et dixit Dominus ad me: Voca nomen ejus: Accelera spolia detrahere; Festina prædari:

4 quia antequam sciat puer vocare patrem suum et matrem suam, auferetur fortitudo Damasci, et spolia Samariæ, coram rege Assyriorum.

5 Et adjecit Dominus loqui ad me adhuc, dicens:

6 [Pro eo quod abjecit populus iste
aquas Siloë, quæ vadunt cum silentio,
et assumpsit magis Rasin,
et filium Romeliæ:

7 propter hoc ecce Dominus adducet super eos
aquas fluminis fortes et multas,
regem Assyriorum, et omnem gloriam ejus,
et ascendet super omnes rivos ejus,
et fluet super universas ripas ejus;

8 et ibit per Judam, inundans, et transiens:
usque ad collum veniet.
Et erit extensio alarum ejus
implens latitudinem terræ tuæ, o Emmanuel!

9 Congregamini, populi, et vincimini;
et audite, universæ procul terræ:
confortamini, et vincimini;
accingite vos, et vincimini.

10 Inite consilium, et dissipabitur;
loquimini verbum, et non fiet:
quia nobiscum Deus.

11 Hæc enim ait Dominus ad me: Sicut in manu forti erudivit me,
ne irem in via populi hujus, dicens:

12 Non dicatis: Conjuratio;
omnia enim quæ loquitur populus iste, conjuratio est:
et timorem ejus ne timeatis, neque paveatis.

13 Dominum exercituum ipsum sanctificate;
ipse pavor vester, et ipse terror vester:

14 et erit vobis in sanctificationem;
in lapidem autem offensionis, et in petram scandali,
duabus domibus Israël;
in laqueum et in ruinam habitantibus Jerusalem.

15 Et offendent ex eis plurimi,
et cadent, et conterentur,
et irretientur, et capientur.

16 Liga testimonium,
signa legem in discipulis meis.

17 Et exspectabo Dominum qui abscondit faciem suam
a domo Jacob, et præstolabor eum.

18 Ecce ego et pueri mei quos dedit mihi Dominus
in signum, et in portentum Israël
a Domino exercituum,
qui habitat in monte Sion:

19 et cum dixerint ad vos:
Quærite a pythonibus
et a divinis qui strident in incantationibus suis:
numquid non populus a Deo suo requiret,
pro vivis a mortuis?

20 ad legem magis et ad testimonium.
Quod si non dixerint juxta verbum hoc,
non erit eis matutina lux.

21 Et transibit per eam, corruet, et esuriet;
et cum esurierit, irascetur.
Et maledicet regi suo, et Deo suo,
et suscipiet sursum,

22 et ad terram intuebitur;
et ecce tribulatio et tenebræ,
dissolutio et angustia,
et caligo persequens,
et non poterit avolare de angustia sua.]
