Isaiah 22


1  The burden4853 of the valley1516 of vision.2384 What4100 aileth thee now,645 that3588 thou art wholly3605 gone up5927 to the housetops?1406

2  Thou that art full4392 of stirs,8663 a tumultuous1993 city,5892 a joyous5947 city:7151 thy slain2491 men are not3808 slain2491 with the sword,2719 nor3808 dead4191 in battle.4421

3  All3605 thy rulers7101 are fled5074 together,3162 they are bound631 by the archers:4480 7198 all3605 that are found4672 in thee are bound631 together,3162 which have fled1272 from far.4480 7350

4  Therefore5921 3651 said559 I, Look away8159 from4480 me; I will weep1065 bitterly,4843 labor213 not408 to comfort5162 me, because5921 of the spoiling7701 of the daughter1323 of my people.5971

5  For3588 it is a day3117 of trouble,4103 and of treading down,4001 and of perplexity3998 by the Lord136 GOD3069 of hosts6635 in the valley1516 of vision,2384 breaking down6979 the walls,7023 and of crying7771 to413 the mountains.2022

6  And Elam5867 bore5375 the quiver827 with chariots7393 of men120 and horsemen,6571 and Kir7024 uncovered6168 the shield.4043

7  And it shall come to pass,1961 that thy choicest4055 valleys6010 shall be full4390 of chariots,7393 and the horsemen6571 shall set themselves in array7896 7896 at the gate.8179

8  And he discovered1540 853 the covering4539 of Judah,3063 and thou didst look5027 in that1931 day3117 to413 the armor5402 of the house1004 of the forest.3293

9  Ye have seen7200 also the breaches1233 of the city5892 of David,1732 that3588 they are many:7231 and ye gathered together6908 853 the waters4325 of the lower8481 pool.1295

10  And ye have numbered5608 the houses1004 of Jerusalem,3389 and the houses1004 have ye broken down5422 to fortify1219 the wall.2346

11  Ye made6213 also a ditch4724 between996 the two walls2346 for the water4325 of the old3465 pool:1295 but ye have not3808 looked5027 unto413 the maker6213 thereof, neither3808 had respect7200 unto him that fashioned3335 it long ago.4480 7350

12  And in that1931 day3117 did the Lord136 GOD3069 of hosts6635 call7121 to weeping,1065 and to mourning,4553 and to baldness,7144 and to girding2296 with sackcloth:8242

13  And behold2009 joy8342 and gladness,8057 slaying2026 oxen,1241 and killing7819 sheep,6629 eating398 flesh,1320 and drinking8354 wine:3196 let us eat398 and drink;8354 for3588 tomorrow4279 we shall die.4191

14  And it was revealed1540 in mine ears241 by the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 Surely518 this2088 iniquity5771 shall not be purged3722 from you till5704 ye die,4191 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 of hosts.6635

15  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 of hosts,6635 Go,1980 get935 thee unto413 this2088 treasurer,5532 even unto5921 Shebna,7644 which834 is over5921 the house,1004 and say,

16  What4100 hast thou here?6311 and whom4310 hast thou here,6311 that3588 thou hast hewed thee out2672 a sepulcher6913 here,6311 as he that heweth him out2672 a sepulcher6913 on high,4791 and that graveth2710 a habitation4908 for himself in a rock?5553

17  Behold,2009 the LORD3068 will carry thee away2904 with a mighty1397 captivity,2925 and will surely cover5844 5844 thee.

18  He will surely violently turn6801 6801 and toss6802 thee like a ball1754 into413 a large7342 3027 country:776 there8033 shalt thou die,4191 and there8033 the chariots4818 of thy glory3519 shall be the shame7036 of thy lord's113 house.1004

19  And I will drive1920 thee from thy station,4480 4673 and from thy state4480 4612 shall he pull thee down.2040

20  And it shall come to pass1961 in that1931 day,3117 that I will call7121 my servant5650 Eliakim471 the son1121 of Hilkiah:2518

21  And I will clothe3847 him with thy robe,3801 and strengthen2388 him with thy girdle,73 and I will commit5414 thy government4475 into his hand:3027 and he shall be1961 a father1 to the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 and to the house1004 of Judah.3063

22  And the key4668 of the house1004 of David1732 will I lay5414 upon5921 his shoulder;7926 so he shall open,6605 and none369 shall shut;5462 and he shall shut,5462 and none369 shall open.6605

23  And I will fasten8628 him as a nail3489 in a sure539 place;4725 and he shall be1961 for a glorious3519 throne3678 to his father's1 house.1004

24  And they shall hang8518 upon5921 him all3605 the glory3519 of his father's1 house,1004 the offspring6631 and the issue,6849 all3605 vessels3627 of small quantity,6996 from the vessels4480 3627 of cups,101 even to5704 all3605 the vessels3627 of flagons.5035

25  In that1931 day,3117 saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 shall the nail3489 that is fastened8628 in the sure539 place4725 be removed,4185 and be cut down,1438 and fall;5307 and the burden4853 that834 was upon5921 it shall be cut off:3772 for3588 the LORD3068 hath spoken1696 it.


1 τὸ ῥῆμα τῆς φάραγγος Σιων τί ἐγένετό σοι νῦν ὅτι ἀνέβητε πάντες εἰς δώματα

2 μάταια ἐνεπλήσθη ἡ πόλις βοώντων οἱ τραυματίαι σου οὐ τραυματίαι μαχαίρας οὐδὲ οἱ νεκροί σου νεκροὶ πολέμου

3 πάντες οἱ ἄρχοντές σου πεφεύγασιν καὶ οἱ ἁλόντες σκληρῶς δεδεμένοι εἰσίν καὶ οἱ ἰσχύοντες ἐν σοὶ πόρρω πεφεύγασιν

4 διὰ τοῦτο εἶπα ἄφετέ με πικρῶς κλαύσομαι μὴ κατισχύσητε παρακαλεῖν με ἐπὶ τὸ σύντριμμα τῆς θυγατρὸς τοῦ γένους μου

5 ὅτι ἡμέρα ταραχῆς καὶ ἀπωλείας καὶ καταπατήματος καὶ πλάνησις παρὰ κυρίου σαβαωθ ἐν φάραγγι Σιων πλανῶνται ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου πλανῶνται ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη

6 οἱ δὲ Αιλαμῖται ἔλαβον φαρέτρας ἀναβάται ἄνθρωποι ἐφ᾽ ἵπποις καὶ συναγωγὴ παρατάξεως

7 καὶ ἔσονται αἱ ἐκλεκταὶ φάραγγές σου πλησθήσονται ἁρμάτων οἱ δὲ ἱππεῖς ἐμφράξουσι τὰς πύλας σου

8 καὶ ἀνακαλύψουσιν τὰς πύλας Ιουδα καὶ ἐμβλέψονται τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ εἰς τοὺς ἐκλεκτοὺς οἴκους τῆς πόλεως

9 καὶ ἀνακαλύψουσιν τὰ κρυπτὰ τῶν οἴκων τῆς ἄκρας Δαυιδ καὶ εἴδοσαν ὅτι πλείους εἰσὶν καὶ ὅτι ἀπέστρεψαν τὸ ὕδωρ τῆς ἀρχαίας κολυμβήθρας εἰς τὴν πόλιν

10 καὶ ὅτι καθείλοσαν τοὺς οἴκους Ιερουσαλημ εἰς ὀχύρωμα τοῦ τείχους τῇ πόλει

11 καὶ ἐποιήσατε ἑαυτοῖς ὕδωρ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν δύο τειχέων ἐσώτερον τῆς κολυμβήθρας τῆς ἀρχαίας καὶ οὐκ ἐνεβλέψατε εἰς τὸν ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς ποιήσαντα αὐτὴν καὶ τὸν κτίσαντα αὐτὴν οὐκ εἴδετε

12 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν κύριος σαβαωθ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ κλαυθμὸν καὶ κοπετὸν καὶ ξύρησιν καὶ ζῶσιν σάκκων

13 αὐτοὶ δὲ ἐποιήσαντο εὐφροσύνην καὶ ἀγαλλίαμα σφάζοντες μόσχους καὶ θύοντες πρόβατα ὥστε φαγεῖν κρέα καὶ πιεῖν οἶνον λέγοντες φάγωμεν καὶ πίωμεν αὔριον γὰρ ἀποθνῄσκομεν

14 καὶ ἀνακεκαλυμμένα ταῦτά ἐστιν ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν κυρίου σαβαωθ ὅτι οὐκ ἀφεθήσεται ὑμῖν αὕτη ἡ ἁμαρτία ἕως ἂν ἀποθάνητε

15 τάδε λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ πορεύου εἰς τὸ παστοφόριον πρὸς Σομναν τὸν ταμίαν καὶ εἰπὸν αὐτῷ

16 τί σὺ ὧδε καὶ τί σοί ἐστιν ὧδε ὅτι ἐλατόμησας σεαυτῷ ὧδε μνημεῖον καὶ ἐποίησας σεαυτῷ ἐν ὑψηλῷ μνημεῖον καὶ ἔγραψας σεαυτῷ ἐν πέτρᾳ σκηνήν

17 ἰδοὺ δὴ κύριος σαβαωθ ἐκβαλεῖ καὶ ἐκτρίψει ἄνδρα καὶ ἀφελεῖ τὴν στολήν σου

18 καὶ τὸν στέφανόν σου τὸν ἔνδοξον καὶ ῥίψει σε εἰς χώραν μεγάλην καὶ ἀμέτρητον καὶ ἐκεῖ ἀποθανῇ καὶ θήσει τὸ ἅρμα σου τὸ καλὸν εἰς ἀτιμίαν καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ ἄρχοντός σου εἰς καταπάτημα

19 καὶ ἀφαιρεθήσῃ ἐκ τῆς οἰκονομίας σου καὶ ἐκ τῆς στάσεώς σου

20 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καλέσω τὸν παῖδά μου Ελιακιμ τὸν τοῦ Χελκιου

21 καὶ ἐνδύσω αὐτὸν τὴν στολήν σου καὶ τὸν στέφανόν σου δώσω αὐτῷ καὶ τὸ κράτος καὶ τὴν οἰκονομίαν σου δώσω εἰς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσται ὡς πατὴρ τοῖς ἐνοικοῦσιν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τοῖς ἐνοικοῦσιν ἐν Ιουδα

22 καὶ δώσω τὴν δόξαν Δαυιδ αὐτῷ καὶ ἄρξει καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἀντιλέγων

23 καὶ στήσω αὐτὸν ἄρχοντα ἐν τόπῳ πιστῷ καὶ ἔσται εἰς θρόνον δόξης τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ

24 καὶ ἔσται πεποιθὼς ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν πᾶς ἔνδοξος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου καὶ ἔσονται ἐπικρεμάμενοι αὐτῷ

25 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τάδε λέγει κύριος σαβαωθ κινηθήσεται ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὁ ἐστηριγμένος ἐν τόπῳ πιστῷ καὶ πεσεῖται καὶ ἀφαιρεθήσεται ἡ δόξα ἡ ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν ὅτι κύριος ἐλάλησεν

1 Onus vallis Visionis. [Quidnam quoque tibi est, quia ascendisti
et tu omnis in tecta?

2 Clamoris plena, urbs frequens,
civitas exsultans;
interfecti tui, non interfecti gladio,
nec mortui in bello.

3 Cuncti principes tui fugerunt simul
dureque ligati sunt;
omnes qui inventi sunt vincti sunt pariter;
procul fugerunt.

4 Propterea dixi: Recedite a me:
amare flebo;
nolite incumbere ut consolemini me
super vastitate filiæ populi mei;

5 dies enim interfectionis,
et conculcationis, et fletuum,
Domino Deo exercituum,
in valle Visionis,
scrutans murum,
et magnificus super montem.

6 Et Ælam sumpsit pharetram,
currum hominis equitis,
et parietem nudavit clypeus.

7 Et erunt electæ valles tuæ plenæ quadrigarum,
et equites ponent sedes suas in porta.

8 Et revelabitur operimentum Judæ,
et videbis in die illa
armamentarium domus saltus.

9 Et scissuras civitatis David videbitis,
quia multiplicatæ sunt;
et congregastis aquas piscinæ inferioris,

10 et domos Jerusalem numerastis,
et destruxistis domos ad muniendum murum.

11 Et lacum fecistis inter duos muros
ad aquam piscinæ veteris;
et non suspexistis ad eum qui fecerat eam,
et operatorem ejus de longe non vidistis.

12 Et vocabit Dominus Deus exercituum
in die illa
ad fletum, et ad planctum,
ad calvitium, et ad cingulum sacci;

13 et ecce gaudium et lætitia,
occidere vitulos et jugulare arietes,
comedere carnes, et bibere vinum:
comedamus et bibamus,
cras enim moriemur.

14 Et revelata est in auribus meis vox Domini exercituum:
Si dimittetur iniquitas hæc vobis donec moriamini,
dicit Dominus Deus exercituum.]

15 [Hæc dicit Dominus Deus exercituum:
Vade, ingredere ad eum qui habitat in tabernaculo,
ad Sobnam, præpositum templi, et dices ad eum:

16 Quid tu hic, aut quasi quis hic?
quia excidisti tibi hic sepulchrum,
excidisti in excelso memoriale diligenter,
in petra tabernaculum tibi.

17 Ecce Dominus asportari te faciet,
sicut asportatur gallus gallinaceus;
et quasi amictum, sic sublevabit te.

18 Coronas coronabit te tribulatione;
quasi pilam mittet te in terram latam et spatiosam;
ibi morieris, et ibi erit currus gloriæ tuæ,
ignominia domus domini tui.

19 Et expellam te de statione tua,
et de ministerio tuo deponam te.

20 Et erit in die illa:
vocabo servum meum Eliacim, filium Helciæ,

21 et induam illum tunica tua,
et cingulo tuo confortabo eum,
et potestatem tuam dabo in manu ejus;
et erit quasi pater habitantibus Jerusalem
et domui Juda.

22 Et dabo clavem domus David
super humerum ejus;
et aperiet, et non erit qui claudat;
et claudet, et non erit qui aperiat.

23 Et figam illum paxillum in loco fideli,
et erit in solium gloriæ domui patris ejus.

24 Et suspendent super eum omnem gloriam domus patris ejus;
vasorum diversa genera,
omne vas parvulum,
a vasis craterarum usque ad omne vas musicorum.

25 In die illa, dicit Dominus exercituum,
auferetur paxillus qui fixus fuerat in loco fideli,
et frangetur, et cadet,
et peribit quod pependerat in eo,
quia Dominus locutus est.]
