Isaiah 30


1  Woe1945 to the rebellious5637 children,1121 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that take6213 counsel,6098 but not3808 of4480 me; and that cover5258 with a covering,4541 but not3808 of my spirit,7307 that4616 they may add5595 sin2403 to5921 sin:2403

2  That walk1980 to go down3381 into Egypt,4714 and have not3808 asked7592 at my mouth;6310 to strengthen5810 themselves in the strength4581 of Pharaoh,6547 and to trust2620 in the shadow6738 of Egypt!4714

3  Therefore shall the strength4581 of Pharaoh6547 be1961 your shame,1322 and the trust2622 in the shadow6738 of Egypt4714 your confusion.3639

4  For3588 his princes8269 were1961 at Zoan,6814 and his ambassadors4397 came5060 to Hanes.2609

5  They were all3605 ashamed954 of5921 a people5971 that could not3808 profit3276 them, nor3808 be a help5828 nor3808 profit,3276 but3588 a shame,1322 and also1571 a reproach.2781

6  The burden4853 of the beasts929 of the south:5045 into the land776 of trouble6869 and anguish,6695 from4480 whence come the young3833 and old lion,3918 the viper660 and fiery flying serpent,8314 5774 they will carry5375 their riches2428 upon5921 the shoulders3802 of young asses,5895 and their treasures214 upon5921 the bunches1707 of camels,1581 to5921 a people5971 that shall not3808 profit3276 them.

7  For the Egyptians4714 shall help5826 in vain,1892 and to no purpose:7385 therefore3651 have I cried7121 concerning this,2063 Their strength7293 is to sit still.7674

8  Now6258 go,935 write3789 it before854 them in5921 a table,3871 and note2710 it in5921 a book,5612 that it may be1961 for the time3117 to come314 forever5703 and ever:5704 5769

9  That3588 this1931 is a rebellious4805 people,5971 lying3586 children,1121 children1121 that will14 not3808 hear8085 the law8451 of the LORD:3068

10  Which834 say559 to the seers,7200 See7200 not;3808 and to the prophets,2374 Prophesy2372 not3808 unto us right things,5229 speak1696 unto us smooth things,2513 prophesy2372 deceits:4123

11  Get5493 you out of4480 the way,1870 turn aside5186 out of4480 the path,734 cause 853 the Holy One6918 of Israel3478 to cease7673 from before4480 6440 us.

12  Wherefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Holy One6918 of Israel,3478 Because3282 ye despise3988 this2088 word,1697 and trust982 in oppression6233 and perverseness,3868 and stay8172 thereon:5921

13  Therefore3651 this2088 iniquity5771 shall be1961 to you as a breach6556 ready to fall,5307 swelling out1158 in a high7682 wall,2346 whose834 breaking7667 cometh935 suddenly6597 at an instant.6621

14  And he shall break7665 it as the breaking7667 of the potter's3335 vessel5035 that is broken in pieces;3807 he shall not3808 spare:2550 so that there shall not3808 be found4672 in the bursting4386 of it a shard2789 to take2846 fire784 from the hearth,4480 3344 or to take2834 water4325 withal out of the pit.4480 1360

15  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD,3069 the Holy One6918 of Israel;3478 In returning7729 and rest5183 shall ye be saved;3467 in quietness8252 and in confidence985 shall be1961 your strength:1369 and ye would14 not.3808

16  But ye said,559 No;3808 for3588 we will flee5127 upon5921 horses;5483 therefore5921 3651 shall ye flee:5127 and, We will ride7392 upon5921 the swift;7031 therefore5921 3651 shall they that pursue7291 you be swift.7043

17  One259 thousand505 shall flee at4480 6440 the rebuke1606 of one;259 at4480 6440 the rebuke1606 of five2568 shall ye flee:5127 till5704 518 ye be left3498 as a beacon8650 upon5921 the top7218 of a mountain,2022 and as an ensign5251 on5921 a hill.1389

18  And therefore3651 will the LORD3068 wait,2442 that he may be gracious2603 unto you, and therefore3651 will he be exalted,7311 that he may have mercy7355 upon you: for3588 the LORD3068 is a God430 of judgment:4941 blessed835 are all3605 they that wait2442 for him.

19  For3588 the people5971 shall dwell3427 in Zion6726 at Jerusalem:3389 thou shalt weep no more:1058 1058 3808 he will be very gracious2603 2603 unto thee at the voice6963 of thy cry;2199 when he shall hear8085 it, he will answer6030 thee.

20  And though the Lord136 give5414 you the bread3899 of adversity,6862 and the water4325 of affliction,3906 yet shall not3808 thy teachers3384 be removed into a corner3670 any more,5750 but thine eyes5869 shall1961 see7200 853 thy teachers:3384

21  And thine ears241 shall hear8085 a word1697 behind4480 310 thee, saying,559 This2088 is the way,1870 walk1980 ye in it, when3588 ye turn to the right hand,541 and when3588 ye turn to the left.8041

22  Ye shall defile2930 also 853 the covering6826 of thy graven images6456 of silver,3701 and the ornament642 of thy molten images4541 of gold:2091 thou shalt cast them away2219 as3644 a menstruous cloth;1739 thou shalt say559 unto it, Get thee hence.3318

23  Then shall he give5414 the rain4306 of thy seed,2233 that834 thou shalt sow2232 853 the ground127 withal; and bread3899 of the increase8393 of the earth,127 and it shall be1961 fat1879 and plenteous:8082 in that1931 day3117 shall thy cattle4735 feed7462 in large7337 pastures.3733

24  The oxen504 likewise and the young asses5895 that ear5647 the ground127 shall eat398 clean2548 provender,1098 which834 hath been winnowed2219 with the shovel7371 and with the fan.4214

25  And there shall be1961 upon5921 every3605 high1364 mountain,2022 and upon5921 every3605 high5375 hill,1389 rivers6388 and streams2988 of waters4325 in the day3117 of the great7227 slaughter,2027 when the towers4026 fall.5307

26  Moreover the light216 of the moon3842 shall be1961 as the light216 of the sun,2535 and the light216 of the sun2535 shall be1961 sevenfold,7659 as the light216 of seven7651 days,3117 in the day3117 that the LORD3068 bindeth up2280 853 the breach7667 of his people,5971 and healeth7495 the stroke4273 of their wound.4347

27  Behold,2009 the name8034 of the LORD3068 cometh935 from far,4480 4801 burning1197 with his anger,639 and the burden4858 thereof is heavy:3514 his lips8193 are full4390 of indignation,2195 and his tongue3956 as a devouring398 fire:784

28  And his breath,7307 as an overflowing7857 stream,5158 shall reach to the midst2673 of5704 the neck,6677 to sift5130 the nations1471 with the sieve5299 of vanity:7723 and there shall be a bridle7448 in5921 the jaws3895 of the people,5971 causing them to err.8582

29  Ye shall have1961 a song,7892 as in the night3915 when a holy solemnity is kept;6942 2282 and gladness8057 of heart,3824 as when one goeth1980 with a pipe2485 to come935 into the mountain2022 of the LORD,3068 to413 the mighty One6697 of Israel.3478

30  And the LORD3068 shall cause 853 his glorious1935 voice6963 to be heard,8085 and shall show7200 the lighting down5183 of his arm,2220 with the indignation2197 of his anger,639 and with the flame3851 of a devouring398 fire,784 with scattering,5311 and tempest,2230 and hailstones.68 1259

31  For3588 through the voice4480 6963 of the LORD3068 shall the Assyrian804 be beaten down,2865 which smote5221 with a rod.7626

32  And in every place3605 where the grounded4145 staff4294 shall pass,4569 which834 the LORD3068 shall lay5117 upon5921 him, it shall be1961 with tabrets8596 and harps:3658 and in battles4421 of shaking8573 will he fight3898 with it.

33  For3588 Tophet8613 is ordained6186 of old;4480 865 yea,1571 for the king4428 it1931 is prepared;3559 he hath made it deep6009 and large:7337 the pile4071 thereof is fire784 and much7235 wood;6086 the breath5397 of the LORD,3068 like a stream5158 of brimstone,1614 doth kindle1197 it.


1 οὐαὶ τέκνα ἀποστάται τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐποιήσατε βουλὴν οὐ δι᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ συνθήκας οὐ διὰ τοῦ πνεύματός μου προσθεῖναι ἁμαρτίας ἐφ᾽ ἁμαρτίαις

2 οἱ πορευόμενοι καταβῆναι εἰς Αἴγυπτον ἐμὲ δὲ οὐκ ἐπηρώτησαν τοῦ βοηθηθῆναι ὑπὸ Φαραω καὶ σκεπασθῆναι ὑπὸ Αἰγυπτίων

3 ἔσται γὰρ ὑμῖν ἡ σκέπη Φαραω εἰς αἰσχύνην καὶ τοῖς πεποιθόσιν ἐπ᾽ Αἴγυπτον ὄνειδος

4 ὅτι εἰσὶν ἐν Τάνει ἀρχηγοὶ ἄγγελοι πονηροί μάτην κοπιάσουσιν

5 πρὸς λαόν ὃς οὐκ ὠφελήσει αὐτοὺς οὔτε εἰς βοήθειαν οὔτε εἰς ὠφέλειαν ἀλλὰ εἰς αἰσχύνην καὶ ὄνειδος

6 ἡ ὅρασις τῶν τετραπόδων τῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἐν τῇ θλίψει καὶ τῇ στενοχωρίᾳ λέων καὶ σκύμνος λέοντος ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ἀσπίδες καὶ ἔκγονα ἀσπίδων πετομένων οἳ ἔφερον ἐπ᾽ ὄνων καὶ καμήλων τὸν πλοῦτον αὐτῶν πρὸς ἔθνος ὃ οὐκ ὠφελήσει αὐτοὺς εἰς βοήθειαν ἀλλὰ εἰς αἰσχύνην καὶ ὄνειδος

7 Αἰγύπτιοι μάταια καὶ κενὰ ὠφελήσουσιν ὑμᾶς ἀπάγγειλον αὐτοῖς ὅτι ματαία ἡ παράκλησις ὑμῶν αὕτη

8 νῦν οὖν καθίσας γράψον ἐπὶ πυξίου ταῦτα καὶ εἰς βιβλίον ὅτι ἔσται εἰς ἡμέρας καιρῶν ταῦτα καὶ ἕως εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

9 ὅτι λαὸς ἀπειθής ἐστιν υἱοὶ ψευδεῖς οἳ οὐκ ἠβούλοντο ἀκούειν τὸν νόμον τοῦ θεοῦ

10 οἱ λέγοντες τοῖς προφήταις μὴ ἀναγγέλλετε ἡμῖν καὶ τοῖς τὰ ὁράματα ὁρῶσιν μὴ λαλεῖτε ἡμῖν ἀλλὰ ἡμῖν λαλεῖτε καὶ ἀναγγέλλετε ἡμῖν ἑτέραν πλάνησιν

11 καὶ ἀποστρέψατε ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ ταύτης ἀφέλετε ἀφ᾽ ἡμῶν τὸν τρίβον τοῦτον καὶ ἀφέλετε ἀφ᾽ ἡμῶν τὸν ἅγιον τοῦ Ισραηλ

12 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ισραηλ ὅτι ἠπειθήσατε τοῖς λόγοις τούτοις καὶ ἠλπίσατε ἐπὶ ψεύδει καὶ ὅτι ἐγόγγυσας καὶ πεποιθὼς ἐγένου ἐπὶ τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ

13 διὰ τοῦτο ἔσται ὑμῖν ἡ ἁμαρτία αὕτη ὡς τεῖχος πῖπτον παραχρῆμα πόλεως ὀχυρᾶς ἑαλωκυίας ἧς παραχρῆμα πάρεστιν τὸ πτῶμα

14 καὶ τὸ πτῶμα αὐτῆς ἔσται ὡς σύντριμμα ἀγγείου ὀστρακίνου ἐκ κεραμίου λεπτὰ ὥστε μὴ εὑρεῖν ἐν αὐτοῖς ὄστρακον ἐν ᾧ πῦρ ἀρεῖς καὶ ἐν ᾧ ἀποσυριεῖς ὕδωρ μικρόν

15 οὕτω λέγει κύριος ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ισραηλ ὅταν ἀποστραφεὶς στενάξῃς τότε σωθήσῃ καὶ γνώσῃ ποῦ ἦσθα ὅτε ἐπεποίθεις ἐπὶ τοῖς ματαίοις ματαία ἡ ἰσχὺς ὑμῶν ἐγενήθη καὶ οὐκ ἠβούλεσθε ἀκούειν

16 ἀλλ᾽ εἴπατε ἐφ᾽ ἵππων φευξόμεθα διὰ τοῦτο φεύξεσθε καὶ εἴπατε ἐπὶ κούφοις ἀναβάται ἐσόμεθα διὰ τοῦτο κοῦφοι ἔσονται οἱ διώκοντες ὑμᾶς

17 διὰ φωνὴν ἑνὸς φεύξονται χίλιοι καὶ διὰ φωνὴν πέντε φεύξονται πολλοί ἕως ἂν καταλειφθῆτε ὡς ἱστὸς ἐπ᾽ ὄρους καὶ ὡς σημαίαν φέρων ἐπὶ βουνοῦ

18 καὶ πάλιν μενεῖ ὁ θεὸς τοῦ οἰκτιρῆσαι ὑμᾶς καὶ διὰ τοῦτο ὑψωθήσεται τοῦ ἐλεῆσαι ὑμᾶς διότι κριτὴς κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐστιν καὶ ποῦ καταλείψετε τὴν δόξαν ὑμῶν μακάριοι οἱ ἐμμένοντες ἐν αὐτῷ

19 διότι λαὸς ἅγιος ἐν Σιων οἰκήσει καὶ Ιερουσαλημ κλαυθμῷ ἔκλαυσεν ἐλέησόν με ἐλεήσει σε τὴν φωνὴν τῆς κραυγῆς σου ἡνίκα εἶδεν ἐπήκουσέν σου

20 καὶ δώσει κύριος ὑμῖν ἄρτον θλίψεως καὶ ὕδωρ στενόν καὶ οὐκέτι μὴ ἐγγίσωσίν σοι οἱ πλανῶντές σε ὅτι οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ὄψονται τοὺς πλανῶντάς σε

21 καὶ τὰ ὦτά σου ἀκούσονται τοὺς λόγους τῶν ὀπίσω σε πλανησάντων οἱ λέγοντες αὕτη ἡ ὁδός πορευθῶμεν ἐν αὐτῇ εἴτε δεξιὰ εἴτε ἀριστερά

22 καὶ ἐξαρεῖς τὰ εἴδωλα τὰ περιηργυρωμένα καὶ τὰ περικεχρυσωμένα λεπτὰ ποιήσεις καὶ λικμήσεις ὡς ὕδωρ ἀποκαθημένης καὶ ὡς κόπρον ὤσεις αὐτά

23 τότε ἔσται ὁ ὑετὸς τῷ σπέρματι τῆς γῆς σου καὶ ὁ ἄρτος τοῦ γενήματος τῆς γῆς σου ἔσται πλησμονὴ καὶ λιπαρός καὶ βοσκηθήσεταί σου τὰ κτήνη τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τόπον πίονα καὶ εὐρύχωρον

24 οἱ ταῦροι ὑμῶν καὶ οἱ βόες οἱ ἐργαζόμενοι τὴν γῆν φάγονται ἄχυρα ἀναπεποιημένα ἐν κριθῇ λελικμημένα

25 καὶ ἔσται ἐπὶ παντὸς ὄρους ὑψηλοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ παντὸς βουνοῦ μετεώρου ὕδωρ διαπορευόμενον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὅταν ἀπόλωνται πολλοὶ καὶ ὅταν πέσωσιν πύργοι

26 καὶ ἔσται τὸ φῶς τῆς σελήνης ὡς τὸ φῶς τοῦ ἡλίου καὶ τὸ φῶς τοῦ ἡλίου ἔσται ἑπταπλάσιον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ὅταν ἰάσηται κύριος τὸ σύντριμμα τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν ὀδύνην τῆς πληγῆς σου ἰάσεται

27 ἰδοὺ τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου διὰ χρόνου ἔρχεται πολλοῦ καιόμενος ὁ θυμός μετὰ δόξης τὸ λόγιον τῶν χειλέων αὐτοῦ τὸ λόγιον ὀργῆς πλῆρες καὶ ἡ ὀργὴ τοῦ θυμοῦ ὡς πῦρ ἔδεται

28 καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ὡς ὕδωρ ἐν φάραγγι σῦρον ἥξει ἕως τοῦ τραχήλου καὶ διαιρεθήσεται τοῦ ἔθνη ταράξαι ἐπὶ πλανήσει ματαίᾳ καὶ διώξεται αὐτοὺς πλάνησις καὶ λήμψεται αὐτοὺς κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν

29 μὴ διὰ παντὸς δεῖ ὑμᾶς εὐφραίνεσθαι καὶ εἰσπορεύεσθαι εἰς τὰ ἅγιά μου διὰ παντὸς ὡσεὶ ἑορτάζοντας καὶ ὡσεὶ εὐφραινομένους εἰσελθεῖν μετὰ αὐλοῦ εἰς τὸ ὄρος τοῦ κυρίου πρὸς τὸν θεὸν τοῦ Ισραηλ

30 καὶ ἀκουστὴν ποιήσει ὁ θεὸς τὴν δόξαν τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν θυμὸν τοῦ βραχίονος αὐτοῦ δείξει μετὰ θυμοῦ καὶ ὀργῆς καὶ φλογὸς κατεσθιούσης κεραυνώσει βιαίως καὶ ὡς ὕδωρ καὶ χάλαζα συγκαταφερομένη βίᾳ

31 διὰ γὰρ φωνὴν κυρίου ἡττηθήσονται Ἀσσύριοι τῇ πληγῇ ᾗ ἂν πατάξῃ αὐτούς

32 καὶ ἔσται αὐτῷ κυκλόθεν ὅθεν ἦν αὐτῷ ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς βοηθείας ἐφ᾽ ᾗ αὐτὸς ἐπεποίθει αὐτοὶ μετὰ αὐλῶν καὶ κιθάρας πολεμήσουσιν αὐτὸν ἐκ μεταβολῆς

33 σὺ γὰρ πρὸ ἡμερῶν ἀπαιτηθήσῃ μὴ καὶ σοὶ ἡτοιμάσθη βασιλεύειν φάραγγα βαθεῖαν ξύλα κείμενα πῦρ καὶ ξύλα πολλά ὁ θυμὸς κυρίου ὡς φάραγξ ὑπὸ θείου καιομένη

1 [Væ filii desertores, dicit Dominus,
ut faceretis consilium, et non ex me,
et ordiremini telam, et non per spiritum meum,
ut adderetis peccatum super peccatum;

2 qui ambulatis ut descendatis in Ægyptum,
et os meum non interrogastis,
sperantes auxilium in fortitudine Pharaonis,
et habentes fiduciam in umbra Ægypti!

3 Et erit vobis fortitudo Pharaonis in confusionem,
et fiducia umbræ Ægypti in ignominiam.

4 Erant enim in Tani principes tui,
et nuntii tui usque ad Hanes pervenerunt.

5 Omnes confusi sunt super populo qui eis prodesse non potuit:
non fuerunt in auxilium et in aliquam utilitatem,
sed in confusionem et in opprobrium.]

6 Onus jumentorum austri. [In terra tribulationis et angustiæ
leæna, et leo ex eis,
vipera et regulus volans;
portantes super humeros jumentorum divitias suas,
et super gibbum camelorum thesauros suos,
ad populum qui eis prodesse non poterit.

7 Ægyptus enim frustra et vane auxiliabitur.
Ideo clamavi super hoc: Superbia tantum est, quiesce.

8 Nunc ergo ingressus, scribe ei super buxum,
et in libro diligenter exara illud,
et erit in die novissimo
in testimonium usque in æternum.

9 Populus enim ad iracundiam provocans est:
et filii mendaces,
filii nolentes
audire legem Dei;

10 qui dicunt videntibus: Nolite videre,
et aspicientibus: Nolite aspicere nobis ea quæ recta sunt;
loquimini nobis placentia:
videte nobis errores.

11 Auferte a me viam;
declinate a me semitam;
cesset a facie nostra
Sanctus Israël.

12 Propterea hæc dicit Sanctus Israël: Pro eo quod reprobastis verbum hoc,
et sperastis in calumnia et in tumultu,
et innixi estis super eo;

13 propterea erit vobis iniquitas hæc
sicut interruptio cadens,
et requisita in muro excelso,
quoniam subito, dum non speratur, veniet contritio ejus.

14 Et comminuetur sicut conteritur lagena figuli
contritione pervalida,
et non invenietur de fragmentis ejus testa
in qua portetur igniculus de incendio,
aut hauriatur parum aquæ de fovea.

15 Quia hæc dicit Dominus Deus, Sanctus Israël:
Si revertamini et quiescatis, salvi eritis;
in silentio et in spe erit fortitudo vestra.
Et noluistis,

16 et dixistis: Nequaquam,
sed ad equos fugiemus:
ideo fugietis;
et: Super veloces ascendemus:
ideo velociores erunt qui persequentur vos.

17 Mille homines a facie terroris unius;
et a facie terroris quinque fugietis,
donec relinquamini
quasi malus navis in vertice montis,
et quasi signum super collem.

18 Propterea exspectat Dominus ut misereatur vestri;
et ideo exaltabitur parcens vobis,
quia Deus judicii Dominus:
beati omnes qui exspectant eum!

19 Populus enim Sion habitabit in Jerusalem:
plorans nequaquam plorabis:
miserans miserebitur tui, ad vocem clamoris tui:
statim ut audierit, respondebit tibi.

20 Et dabit vobis Dominus
panem arctum, et aquam brevem;
et non faciet avolare a te ultra doctorem tuum;
et erunt oculi tui videntes præceptorem tuum.

21 Et aures tuæ audient verbum post tergum monentis:
Hæc est via; ambulate in ea,
et non declinetis neque ad dexteram, neque ad sinistram.

22 Et contaminabis laminas sculptilium argenti tui,
et vestimentum conflatilis auri tui,
et disperges ea sicut immunditiam menstruatæ.
Egredere, dices ei.

23 Et dabitur pluvia semini tuo,
ubicumque seminaveris in terra,
et panis frugum terræ
erit uberrimus et pinguis;
pascetur in possessione tua in die illo agnus spatiose,

24 et tauri tui, et pulli asinorum,
qui operantur terram,
commistum migma comedent
sicut in area ventilatum est.

25 Et erunt super omnem montem excelsum,
et super omnem collem elevatum,
rivi currentium aquarum,
in die interfectionis multorum,
cum ceciderint turres:

26 et erit lux lunæ sicut lux solis,
et lux solis erit septempliciter
sicut lux septem dierum,
in die qua alligaverit Dominus vulnus populi sui,
et percussuram plagæ ejus sanaverit.

27 Ecce nomen Domini venit de longinquo,
ardens furor ejus, et gravis ad portandum;
labia ejus repleta sunt indignatione,
et lingua ejus quasi ignis devorans.

28 Spiritus ejus velut torrens
inundans usque ad medium colli,
ad perdendas gentes in nihilum,
et frenum erroris quod erat in maxillis populorum.

29 Canticum erit vobis
sicut nox sanctificatæ solemnitatis,
et lætitia cordis
sicut qui pergit cum tibia,
ut intret in montem Domini
ad Fortem Israël.

30 Et auditam faciet Dominus gloriam vocis suæ,
et terrorem brachii sui ostendet
in comminatione furoris, et flamma ignis devorantis:
allidet in turbine, et in lapide grandinis.

31 A voce enim Domini pavebit Assur
virga percussus.

32 Et erit transitus virgæ fundatus,
quam requiescere faciet Dominus super eum
in tympanis et citharis;
et in bellis præcipuis expugnabit eos.

33 Præparata est enim ab heri Topheth,
a rege præparata,
profunda, et dilatata.
Nutrimenta ejus, ignis et ligna multa;
flatus Domini sicut torrens sulphuris succendens eam.]
