Isaiah 45


1  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 to his anointed,4899 to Cyrus,3566 whose834 right hand3225 I have holden,2388 to subdue7286 nations1471 before6440 him; and I will loose6605 the loins4975 of kings,4428 to open6605 before6440 him the two leaved gates;1817 and the gates8179 shall not3808 be shut;5462

2  I589 will go1980 before6440 thee, and make the crooked places straight:3474 1921 I will break in pieces7665 the gates1817 of brass,5154 and cut in sunder1438 the bars1280 of iron:1270

3  And I will give5414 thee the treasures214 of darkness,2822 and hidden riches4301 of secret places,4565 that4616 thou mayest know3045 that3588 I,589 the LORD,3068 which call7121 thee by thy name,8034 am the God430 of Israel.3478

4  For Jacob3290 my servant's sake,4616 5650 and Israel3478 mine elect,972 I have even called7121 thee by thy name:8034 I have surnamed3655 thee, though thou hast not3808 known3045 me.

5  I589 am the LORD,3068 and there is none369 else,5750 there is no369 God430 beside2108 me: I girded247 thee, though thou hast not3808 known3045 me:

6  That4616 they may know3045 from the rising4480 4217 of the sun,8121 and from the west,4480 4628 that3588 there is none657 beside1107 me. I589 am the LORD,3068 and there is none369 else.5750

7  I form3335 the light,216 and create1254 darkness:2822 I make6213 peace,7965 and create1254 evil:7451 I589 the LORD3068 do6213 all3605 these428 things.

8  Drop down,7491 ye heavens,8064 from above,4480 4605 and let the skies7834 pour down5140 righteousness:6664 let the earth776 open,6605 and let them bring forth6509 salvation,3468 and let righteousness6666 spring up6779 together;3162 I589 the LORD3068 have created1254 it.

9  Woe1945 unto him that striveth7378 with854 his Maker!3335 Let the potsherd2789 strive with854 the potsherds2789 of the earth.127 Shall the clay2563 say559 to him that fashioneth3335 it, What4100 makest6213 thou? or thy work,6467 He hath no369 hands?3027

10  Woe1945 unto him that saith559 unto his father,1 What4100 begettest3205 thou? or to the woman,802 What4100 hast thou brought forth?2342

11  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the Holy One6918 of Israel,3478 and his Maker,3335 Ask7592 me of things to come857 concerning5921 my sons,1121 and concerning5921 the work6467 of my hands3027 command6680 ye me.

12  I595 have made6213 the earth,776 and created1254 man120 upon5921 it: I,589 even my hands,3027 have stretched out5186 the heavens,8064 and all3605 their host6635 have I commanded.6680

13  I595 have raised him up5782 in righteousness,6664 and I will direct3474 all3605 his ways:1870 he1931 shall build1129 my city,5892 and he shall let go7971 my captives,1546 not3808 for price4242 nor3808 reward,7810 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

14  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 The labor3018 of Egypt,4714 and merchandise5505 of Ethiopia3568 and of the Sabeans,5436 men376 of stature,4060 shall come over5674 unto5921 thee, and they shall be1961 thine: they shall come1980 after310 thee; in chains2131 they shall come over,5674 and they shall fall down7812 unto413 thee, they shall make supplication6419 unto413 thee, saying, Surely389 God410 is in thee; and there is none369 else,5750 there is no657 God.430

15  Verily403 thou859 art a God410 that hidest thyself,5641 O God430 of Israel,3478 the Savior.3467

16  They shall be ashamed,954 and also1571 confounded,3637 all3605 of them: they shall go1980 to confusion3639 together3162 that are makers2796 of idols.6736

17  But Israel3478 shall be saved3467 in the LORD3068 with an everlasting5769 salvation:8668 ye shall not3808 be ashamed954 nor3808 confounded3637 world without end.5704 5769 5703

18  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 that created1254 the heavens;8064 God430 himself1931 that formed3335 the earth776 and made6213 it; he1931 hath established3559 it, he created1254 it not3808 in vain,8414 he formed3335 it to be inhabited:3427 I589 am the LORD;3068 and there is none369 else.5750

19  I have not3808 spoken1696 in secret,5643 in a dark2822 place4725 of the earth:776 I said559 not3808 unto the seed2233 of Jacob,3290 Seek1245 ye me in vain:8414 I589 the LORD3068 speak1696 righteousness,6664 I declare5046 things that are right.4339

20  Assemble yourselves6908 and come;935 draw near5066 together,3162 ye that are escaped6412 of the nations:1471 they have no knowledge3045 3808 that set up5375 853 the wood6086 of their graven image,6459 and pray6419 unto413 a god410 that cannot3808 save.3467

21  Tell5046 ye, and bring them near;5066 yea,637 let them take counsel3289 together:3162 who4310 hath declared8085 this2063 from ancient time?4480 6924 who hath told5046 it from that time?4480 227 have not3808 I589 the LORD?3068 and there is no369 God430 else5750 beside4480 1107 me; a just6662 God410 and a Savior;3467 there is none369 beside2108 me.

22  Look6437 unto413 me, and be ye saved,3467 all3605 the ends657 of the earth:776 for3588 I589 am God,410 and there is none369 else.5750

23  I have sworn7650 by myself, the word1697 is gone out3318 of my mouth4480 6310 in righteousness,6666 and shall not3808 return,7725 That3588 unto me every3605 knee1290 shall bow,3766 every3605 tongue3956 shall swear.7650

24  Surely,389 shall one say,559 in the LORD3068 have I righteousness6666 and strength:5797 even to5704 him shall men come;935 and all3605 that are incensed2734 against him shall be ashamed.954

25  In the LORD3068 shall all3605 the seed2233 of Israel3478 be justified,6663 and shall glory.1984


1 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῷ χριστῷ μου Κύρῳ οὗ ἐκράτησα τῆς δεξιᾶς ἐπακοῦσαι ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ ἔθνη καὶ ἰσχὺν βασιλέων διαρρήξω ἀνοίξω ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ θύρας καὶ πόλεις οὐ συγκλεισθήσονται

2 ἐγὼ ἔμπροσθέν σου πορεύσομαι καὶ ὄρη ὁμαλιῶ θύρας χαλκᾶς συντρίψω καὶ μοχλοὺς σιδηροῦς συγκλάσω

3 καὶ δώσω σοι θησαυροὺς σκοτεινούς ἀποκρύφους ἀοράτους ἀνοίξω σοι ἵνα γνῷς ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ καλῶν τὸ ὄνομά σου θεὸς Ισραηλ

4 ἕνεκεν Ιακωβ τοῦ παιδός μου καὶ Ισραηλ τοῦ ἐκλεκτοῦ μου ἐγὼ καλέσω σε τῷ ὀνόματί σου καὶ προσδέξομαί σε σὺ δὲ οὐκ ἔγνως με

5 ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν ἐμοῦ θεός καὶ οὐκ ᾔδεις με

6 ἵνα γνῶσιν οἱ ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν ἡλίου καὶ οἱ ἀπὸ δυσμῶν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν πλὴν ἐμοῦ ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι

7 ἐγὼ ὁ κατασκευάσας φῶς καὶ ποιήσας σκότος ὁ ποιῶν εἰρήνην καὶ κτίζων κακά ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ ποιῶν ταῦτα πάντα

8 εὐφρανθήτω ὁ οὐρανὸς ἄνωθεν καὶ αἱ νεφέλαι ῥανάτωσαν δικαιοσύνην ἀνατειλάτω ἡ γῆ ἔλεος καὶ δικαιοσύνην ἀνατειλάτω ἅμα ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος ὁ κτίσας σε

9 ποῖον βέλτιον κατεσκεύασα ὡς πηλὸν κεραμέως μὴ ὁ ἀροτριῶν ἀροτριάσει τὴν γῆν ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν μὴ ἐρεῖ ὁ πηλὸς τῷ κεραμεῖ τί ποιεῖς ὅτι οὐκ ἐργάζῃ οὐδὲ ἔχεις χεῖρας

10 ὁ λέγων τῷ πατρί τί γεννήσεις καὶ τῇ μητρί τί ὠδινήσεις

11 ὅτι οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ ἅγιος Ισραηλ ὁ ποιήσας τὰ ἐπερχόμενα ἐρωτήσατέ με περὶ τῶν υἱῶν μου καὶ περὶ τῶν θυγατέρων μου καὶ περὶ τῶν ἔργων τῶν χειρῶν μου ἐντείλασθέ μοι

12 ἐγὼ ἐποίησα γῆν καὶ ἄνθρωπον ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἐγὼ τῇ χειρί μου ἐστερέωσα τὸν οὐρανόν ἐγὼ πᾶσι τοῖς ἄστροις ἐνετειλάμην

13 ἐγὼ ἤγειρα αὐτὸν μετὰ δικαιοσύνης βασιλέα καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ ὁδοὶ αὐτοῦ εὐθεῖαι οὗτος οἰκοδομήσει τὴν πόλιν μου καὶ τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐπιστρέψει οὐ μετὰ λύτρων οὐδὲ μετὰ δώρων εἶπεν κύριος σαβαωθ

14 οὕτως λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ ἐκοπίασεν Αἴγυπτος καὶ ἐμπορία Αἰθιόπων καὶ οἱ Σεβωιν ἄνδρες ὑψηλοὶ ἐπὶ σὲ διαβήσονται καὶ σοὶ ἔσονται δοῦλοι καὶ ὀπίσω σου ἀκολουθήσουσιν δεδεμένοι χειροπέδαις καὶ προσκυνήσουσίν σοι καὶ ἐν σοὶ προσεύξονται ὅτι ἐν σοὶ ὁ θεός ἐστιν καὶ ἐροῦσιν οὐκ ἔστιν θεὸς πλὴν σοῦ

15 σὺ γὰρ εἶ θεός καὶ οὐκ ᾔδειμεν ὁ θεὸς τοῦ Ισραηλ σωτήρ

16 αἰσχυνθήσονται καὶ ἐντραπήσονται πάντες οἱ ἀντικείμενοι αὐτῷ καὶ πορεύσονται ἐν αἰσχύνῃ ἐγκαινίζεσθε πρός με νῆσοι

17 Ισραηλ σῴζεται ὑπὸ κυρίου σωτηρίαν αἰώνιον οὐκ αἰσχυνθήσονται οὐδὲ μὴ ἐντραπῶσιν ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος

18 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ ποιήσας τὸν οὐρανόν οὗτος ὁ θεὸς ὁ καταδείξας τὴν γῆν καὶ ποιήσας αὐτήν αὐτὸς διώρισεν αὐτήν οὐκ εἰς κενὸν ἐποίησεν αὐτὴν ἀλλὰ κατοικεῖσθαι ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι

19 οὐκ ἐν κρυφῇ λελάληκα οὐδὲ ἐν τόπῳ γῆς σκοτεινῷ οὐκ εἶπα τῷ σπέρματι Ιακωβ μάταιον ζητήσατε ἐγώ εἰμι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος λαλῶν δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἀναγγέλλων ἀλήθειαν

20 συνάχθητε καὶ ἥκετε βουλεύσασθε ἅμα οἱ σῳζόμενοι ἀπὸ τῶν ἐθνῶν οὐκ ἔγνωσαν οἱ αἴροντες τὸ ξύλον γλύμμα αὐτῶν καὶ προσευχόμενοι ὡς πρὸς θεούς οἳ οὐ σῴζουσιν

21 εἰ ἀναγγελοῦσιν ἐγγισάτωσαν ἵνα γνῶσιν ἅμα τίς ἀκουστὰ ἐποίησεν ταῦτα ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς τότε ἀνηγγέλη ὑμῖν ἐγὼ ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλος πλὴν ἐμοῦ δίκαιος καὶ σωτὴρ οὐκ ἔστιν πάρεξ ἐμοῦ

22 ἐπιστράφητε πρός με καὶ σωθήσεσθε οἱ ἀπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ θεός καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλος

23 κατ᾽ ἐμαυτοῦ ὀμνύω ἦ μὴν ἐξελεύσεται ἐκ τοῦ στόματός μου δικαιοσύνη οἱ λόγοι μου οὐκ ἀποστραφήσονται ὅτι ἐμοὶ κάμψει πᾶν γόνυ καὶ ἐξομολογήσεται πᾶσα γλῶσσα τῷ θεῷ

24 λέγων δικαιοσύνη καὶ δόξα πρὸς αὐτὸν ἥξουσιν καὶ αἰσχυνθήσονται πάντες οἱ ἀφορίζοντες ἑαυτούς

25 ἀπὸ κυρίου δικαιωθήσονται καὶ ἐν τῷ θεῷ ἐνδοξασθήσονται πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

1 [Hæc dicit Dominus christo meo Cyro,
cujus apprehendi dexteram,
ut subjiciam ante faciem ejus gentes,
et dorsa regum vertam,
et aperiam coram eo januas,
et portæ non claudentur:

2 Ego ante te ibo, et gloriosos terræ humiliabo;
portas æreas conteram,
et vectes ferreos confringam:

3 et dabo tibi thesauros absconditos,
et arcana secretorum,
ut scias quia ego Dominus,
qui voco nomen tuum, Deus Israël,

4 propter servum meum Jacob,
et Israël, electum meum;
et vocavi te nomine tuo:
assimilavi te, et non cognovisti me.

5 Ego Dominus, et non est amplius;
extra me non est deus;
accinxi te, et non cognovisti me:

6 ut sciant hi qui ab ortu solis et qui ab occidente,
quoniam absque me non est:
ego Dominus, et non est alter:

7 formans lucem et creans tenebras,
faciens pacem et creans malum:
ego Dominus faciens omnia hæc.

8 Rorate, cæli, desuper,
et nubes pluant justum;
aperiatur terra, et germinet Salvatorem,
et justitia oriatur simul:
ego Dominus creavi eum.]

9 [Væ qui contradicit fictori suo,
testa de samiis terræ!
Numquid dicet lutum figulo suo: Quid facis,
et opus tuum absque manibus est?

10 Væ qui dicit patri: Quid generas?
et mulieri: Quid parturis?

11 Hæc dicit Dominus,
Sanctus Israël, plastes ejus:
Ventura interrogate me;
super filios meos et super opus manuum mearum mandate mihi.

12 Ego feci terram,
et hominem super eam creavi ego:
manus meæ tetenderunt cælos,
et omni militiæ eorum mandavi.

13 Ego suscitavi eum ad justitiam,
et omnes vias ejus dirigam;
ipse ædificabit civitatem meam,
et captivitatem meam dimittet,
non in pretio neque in muneribus,
dicit Dominus Deus exercituum.]

14 [Hæc dicit Dominus:
Labor Ægypti, et negotiatio Æthiopiæ,
et Sabaim viri sublimes
ad te transibunt, et tui erunt;
post te ambulabunt,
vincti manicis pergent, et te adorabunt,
teque deprecabuntur.
Tantum in te est Deus,
et non est absque te deus.

15 Vere tu es Deus absconditus,
Deus Israël, salvator.

16 Confusi sunt, et erubuerunt omnes:
simul abierunt in confusionem fabricatores errorum.

17 Israël salvatus est in Domino salute æterna;
non confundemini, et non erubescetis usque in sæculum sæculi.

18 Quia hæc dicit Dominus
creans cælos,
ipse Deus formans terram
et faciens eam, ipse plastes ejus;
non in vanum creavit eam:
ut habitaretur formavit eam:
Ego Dominus, et non est alius.

19 Non in abscondito locutus sum,
in loco terræ tenebroso;
non dixi semini Jacob frustra:
Quærite me:
ego Dominus loquens justitiam,
annuntians recta.

20 Congregamini, et venite, et accedite simul
qui salvati estis ex gentibus:
nescierunt qui levant lignum sculpturæ suæ,
et rogant deum non salvantem.

21 Annuntiate, et venite,
et consiliamini simul.
Quis auditum fecit hoc ab initio,
ex tunc prædixit illud?
numquid non ego Dominus,
et non est ultra deus absque me?
Deus justus, et salvans non est præter me.

22 Convertimini ad me, et salvi eritis,
omnes fines terræ,
quia ego Deus, et non est alius.

23 In memetipso juravi;
egredietur de ore meo justitiæ verbum,
et non revertetur:
quia mihi curvabitur omne genu,
et jurabit omnis lingua.

24 Ergo in Domino, dicet,
meæ sunt justitiæ et imperium;
ad eum venient, et confundentur
omnes qui repugnant ei.

25 In Domino justificabitur, et laudabitur
omne semen Israël.]
