Isaiah 65


1  I am sought1875 of them that asked7592 not3808 for me; I am found4672 of them that sought1245 me not:3808 I said,559 Behold2009 me, behold2009 me, unto413 a nation1471 that was not3808 called7121 by my name.8034

2  I have spread out6566 my hands3027 all3605 the day3117 unto413 a rebellious5637 people,5971 which walketh1980 in a way1870 that was not3808 good,2896 after310 their own thoughts;4284

3  A people5971 that provoketh me to anger3707 853 continually8548 to5921 my face;6440 that sacrificeth2076 in gardens,1593 and burneth incense6999 upon5921 altars of brick;3843

4  Which remain3427 among the graves,6913 and lodge3885 in the monuments,5341 which eat398 swine's2386 flesh,1320 and broth4839 of abominable6292 things is in their vessels;3627

5  Which say,559 Stand7126 by413 thyself, come not near5066 408 to me; for3588 I am holier6942 than thou. These428 are a smoke6227 in my nose,639 a fire784 that burneth3344 all3605 the day.3117

6  Behold,2009 it is written3789 before6440 me: I will not3808 keep silence,2814 but3588 518 will recompense,7999 even recompense7999 into5921 their bosom,2436

7  Your iniquities,5771 and the iniquities5771 of your fathers1 together,3162 saith559 the LORD,3068 which834 have burned incense6999 upon5921 the mountains,2022 and blasphemed2778 me upon5921 the hills:1389 therefore will I measure4058 their former7223 work6468 into413 their bosom.2436

8  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 As834 the new wine8492 is found4672 in the cluster,811 and one saith,559 Destroy7843 it not;408 for3588 a blessing1293 is in it: so3651 will I do6213 for my servants' sakes,4616 5650 that I may not1115 destroy7843 them all.3605

9  And I will bring forth3318 a seed2233 out of Jacob,4480 3290 and out of Judah4480 3063 an inheritor3423 of my mountains:2022 and mine elect972 shall inherit3423 it, and my servants5650 shall dwell7931 there.8033

10  And Sharon8289 shall be1961 a fold5116 of flocks,6629 and the valley6010 of Achor5911 a place for the herds1241 to lie down in,7258 for my people5971 that834 have sought1875 me.

11  But ye859 are they that forsake5800 the LORD,3068 that forget7913 853 my holy6944 mountain,2022 that prepare6186 a table7979 for that troop,1408 and that furnish4390 the drink offering4469 unto that number.4507

12  Therefore will I number4487 you to the sword,2719 and ye shall all3605 bow down3766 to the slaughter:2874 because3282 when I called,7121 ye did not3808 answer;6030 when I spoke,1696 ye did not3808 hear;8085 but did6213 evil7451 before mine eyes,5869 and did choose977 that wherein834 I delighted2654 not.3808

13  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD,3069 Behold,2009 my servants5650 shall eat,398 but ye859 shall be hungry:7456 behold,2009 my servants5650 shall drink,8354 but ye859 shall be thirsty:6770 behold,2009 my servants5650 shall rejoice,8055 but ye859 shall be ashamed:954

14  Behold,2009 my servants5650 shall sing7442 for joy4480 2898 of heart,3820 but ye859 shall cry6817 for sorrow4480 3511 of heart,3820 and shall howl3213 for vexation4480 7667 of spirit.7307

15  And ye shall leave5117 your name8034 for a curse7621 unto my chosen:972 for the Lord136 GOD3069 shall slay4191 thee, and call7121 his servants5650 by another312 name:8034

16  That he who834 blesseth himself1288 in the earth776 shall bless himself1288 in the God430 of truth;543 and he that sweareth7650 in the earth776 shall swear7650 by the God430 of truth;543 because3588 the former7223 troubles6869 are forgotten,7911 and because3588 they are hid5641 from mine eyes.4480 5869

17  For,3588 behold,2009 I create1254 new2319 heavens8064 and a new2319 earth:776 and the former7223 shall not3808 be remembered,2142 nor3808 come5927 into5921 mind.3820

18  But3588 518 be ye glad7797 and rejoice1523 forever5704 5703 in that which834 I589 create:1254 for,3588 behold,2009 I create1254 853 Jerusalem3389 a rejoicing,1525 and her people5971 a joy.4885

19  And I will rejoice1523 in Jerusalem,3389 and joy7797 in my people:5971 and the voice6963 of weeping1065 shall be no3808 more5750 heard8085 in her, nor the voice6963 of crying.2201

20  There shall be1961 no3808 more5750 thence4480 8033 an infant5764 of days,3117 nor an old man2205 that834 hath not3808 filled4390 853 his days:3117 for3588 the child5288 shall die4191 a hundred3967 years8141 old;1121 but the sinner2398 being a hundred3967 years8141 old1121 shall be accursed.7043

21  And they shall build1129 houses,1004 and inhabit3427 them; and they shall plant5193 vineyards,3754 and eat398 the fruit6529 of them.

22  They shall not3808 build,1129 and another312 inhabit;3427 they shall not3808 plant,5193 and another312 eat:398 for3588 as the days3117 of a tree6086 are the days3117 of my people,5971 and mine elect972 shall long enjoy1086 the work4639 of their hands.3027

23  They shall not3808 labor3021 in vain,7385 nor3808 bring forth3205 for trouble;928 for3588 they1992 are the seed2233 of the blessed1288 of the LORD,3068 and their offspring6631 with854 them.

24  And it shall come to pass,1961 that before2962 they call,7121 I589 will answer;6030 and while they1992 are yet5750 speaking,1696 I589 will hear.8085

25  The wolf2061 and the lamb2924 shall feed7462 together,259 and the lion738 shall eat398 straw8401 like the bullock:1241 and dust6083 shall be the serpent's5175 meat.3899 They shall not3808 hurt7489 nor3808 destroy7843 in all3605 my holy6944 mountain,2022 saith559 the LORD.3068


1 ἐμφανὴς ἐγενόμην τοῖς ἐμὲ μὴ ζητοῦσιν εὑρέθην τοῖς ἐμὲ μὴ ἐπερωτῶσιν εἶπα ἰδού εἰμι τῷ ἔθνει οἳ οὐκ ἐκάλεσάν μου τὸ ὄνομα

2 ἐξεπέτασα τὰς χεῖράς μου ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν πρὸς λαὸν ἀπειθοῦντα καὶ ἀντιλέγοντα οἳ οὐκ ἐπορεύθησαν ὁδῷ ἀληθινῇ ἀλλ᾽ ὀπίσω τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν

3 ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ὁ παροξύνων με ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ διὰ παντός αὐτοὶ θυσιάζουσιν ἐν τοῖς κήποις καὶ θυμιῶσιν ἐπὶ ταῖς πλίνθοις τοῖς δαιμονίοις ἃ οὐκ ἔστιν

4 καὶ ἐν τοῖς μνήμασιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς σπηλαίοις κοιμῶνται δι᾽ ἐνύπνια οἱ ἔσθοντες κρέα ὕεια καὶ ζωμὸν θυσιῶν μεμολυμμένα πάντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτῶν

5 οἱ λέγοντες πόρρω ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ μὴ ἐγγίσῃς μου ὅτι καθαρός εἰμι οὗτος καπνὸς τοῦ θυμοῦ μου πῦρ καίεται ἐν αὐτῷ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

6 ἰδοὺ γέγραπται ἐνώπιόν μου οὐ σιωπήσω ἕως ἂν ἀποδῶ εἰς τὸν κόλπον αὐτῶν

7 τὰς ἁμαρτίας αὐτῶν καὶ τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν λέγει κύριος οἳ ἐθυμίασαν ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν βουνῶν ὠνείδισάν με ἀποδώσω τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν κόλπον αὐτῶν

8 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὃν τρόπον εὑρεθήσεται ὁ ῥὼξ ἐν τῷ βότρυι καὶ ἐροῦσιν μὴ λυμήνῃ αὐτὸν ὅτι εὐλογία κυρίου ἐστὶν ἐν αὐτῷ οὕτως ποιήσω ἕνεκεν τοῦ δουλεύοντός μοι τούτου ἕνεκεν οὐ μὴ ἀπολέσω πάντας

9 καὶ ἐξάξω τὸ ἐξ Ιακωβ σπέρμα καὶ τὸ ἐξ Ιουδα καὶ κληρονομήσει τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν οἱ ἐκλεκτοί μου καὶ οἱ δοῦλοί μου καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἐκεῖ

10 καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τῷ δρυμῷ ἐπαύλεις ποιμνίων καὶ φάραγξ Αχωρ εἰς ἀνάπαυσιν βουκολίων τῷ λαῷ μου οἳ ἐζήτησάν με

11 ὑμεῖς δὲ οἱ ἐγκαταλιπόντες με καὶ ἐπιλανθανόμενοι τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου καὶ ἑτοιμάζοντες τῷ δαίμονι τράπεζαν καὶ πληροῦντες τῇ τύχῃ κέρασμα

12 ἐγὼ παραδώσω ὑμᾶς εἰς μάχαιραν πάντες ἐν σφαγῇ πεσεῖσθε ὅτι ἐκάλεσα ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐχ ὑπηκούσατε ἐλάλησα καὶ παρηκούσατε καὶ ἐποιήσατε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ καὶ ἃ οὐκ ἐβουλόμην ἐξελέξασθε

13 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι φάγονται ὑμεῖς δὲ πεινάσετε ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι πίονται ὑμεῖς δὲ διψήσετε ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι εὐφρανθήσονται ὑμεῖς δὲ αἰσχυνθήσεσθε

14 ἰδοὺ οἱ δουλεύοντές μοι ἀγαλλιάσονται ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ ὑμεῖς δὲ κεκράξεσθε διὰ τὸν πόνον τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ ἀπὸ συντριβῆς πνεύματος ὀλολύξετε

15 καταλείψετε γὰρ τὸ ὄνομα ὑμῶν εἰς πλησμονὴν τοῖς ἐκλεκτοῖς μου ὑμᾶς δὲ ἀνελεῖ κύριος τοῖς δὲ δουλεύουσιν αὐτῷ κληθήσεται ὄνομα καινόν

16 ὃ εὐλογηθήσεται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εὐλογήσουσιν γὰρ τὸν θεὸν τὸν ἀληθινόν καὶ οἱ ὀμνύοντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὀμοῦνται τὸν θεὸν τὸν ἀληθινόν ἐπιλήσονται γὰρ τὴν θλῖψιν αὐτῶν τὴν πρώτην καὶ οὐκ ἀναβήσεται αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν

17 ἔσται γὰρ ὁ οὐρανὸς καινὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ καινή καὶ οὐ μὴ μνησθῶσιν τῶν προτέρων οὐδ᾽ οὐ μὴ ἐπέλθῃ αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν

18 ἀλλ᾽ εὐφροσύνην καὶ ἀγαλλίαμα εὑρήσουσιν ἐν αὐτῇ ὅτι ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ποιῶ Ιερουσαλημ ἀγαλλίαμα καὶ τὸν λαόν μου εὐφροσύνην

19 καὶ ἀγαλλιάσομαι ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ εὐφρανθήσομαι ἐπὶ τῷ λαῷ μου καὶ οὐκέτι μὴ ἀκουσθῇ ἐν αὐτῇ φωνὴ κλαυθμοῦ οὐδὲ φωνὴ κραυγῆς

20 καὶ οὐ μὴ γένηται ἐκεῖ ἄωρος καὶ πρεσβύτης ὃς οὐκ ἐμπλήσει τὸν χρόνον αὐτοῦ ἔσται γὰρ ὁ νέος ἑκατὸν ἐτῶν ὁ δὲ ἀποθνῄσκων ἁμαρτωλὸς ἑκατὸν ἐτῶν καὶ ἐπικατάρατος ἔσται

21 καὶ οἰκοδομήσουσιν οἰκίας καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐνοικήσουσιν καὶ καταφυτεύσουσιν ἀμπελῶνας καὶ αὐτοὶ φάγονται τὰ γενήματα αὐτῶν

22 καὶ οὐ μὴ οἰκοδομήσουσιν καὶ ἄλλοι ἐνοικήσουσιν καὶ οὐ μὴ φυτεύσουσιν καὶ ἄλλοι φάγονται κατὰ γὰρ τὰς ἡμέρας τοῦ ξύλου τῆς ζωῆς ἔσονται αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ λαοῦ μου τὰ ἔργα τῶν πόνων αὐτῶν παλαιώσουσιν

23 οἱ δὲ ἐκλεκτοί μου οὐ κοπιάσουσιν εἰς κενὸν οὐδὲ τεκνοποιήσουσιν εἰς κατάραν ὅτι σπέρμα ηὐλογημένον ὑπὸ θεοῦ ἐστιν καὶ τὰ ἔκγονα αὐτῶν μετ᾽ αὐτῶν ἔσονται

24 καὶ ἔσται πρὶν κεκράξαι αὐτοὺς ἐγὼ ἐπακούσομαι αὐτῶν ἔτι λαλούντων αὐτῶν ἐρῶ τί ἐστιν

25 τότε λύκοι καὶ ἄρνες βοσκηθήσονται ἅμα καὶ λέων ὡς βοῦς φάγεται ἄχυρα ὄφις δὲ γῆν ὡς ἄρτον οὐκ ἀδικήσουσιν οὐδὲ μὴ λυμανοῦνται ἐπὶ τῷ ὄρει τῷ ἁγίῳ μου λέγει κύριος

1 [Quæsierunt me qui ante non interrogabant;
invenerunt qui non quæsierunt me.
Dixi: Ecce ego, ecce ego,
ad gentem quæ non invocabat nomen meum.

2 Expandi manus meas tota die
ad populum incredulum,
qui graditur in via non bona
post cogitationes suas.

3 Populus qui ad iracundiam provocat me
ante faciem meam semper;
qui immolant in hortis,
et sacrificant super lateres;

4 qui habitant in sepulchris,
et in delubris idolorum dormiunt;
qui comedunt carnem suillam,
et jus profanum in vasis eorum;

5 qui dicunt: Recede a me,
non appropinques mihi, quia immundus es.
Isti fumus erunt in furore meo,
ignis ardens tota die.

6 Ecce scriptum est coram me:
Non tacebo, sed reddam,
et retribuam in sinum eorum.

7 Iniquitates vestras, et iniquitates patrum vestrorum simul,
dicit Dominus;
qui sacrificaverunt super montes,
et super colles exprobraverunt mihi;
et remetiar opus eorum primum
in sinu eorum.

8 Hæc dicit Dominus:
Quomodo si inveniatur granum in botro,
et dicatur: Ne dissipes illud,
quoniam benedictio est:
sic faciam propter servos meos,
ut non disperdam totum.

9 Et educam de Jacob semen,
et de Juda possidentem montes meos;
et hæreditabunt eam electi mei,
et servi mei habitabunt ibi.

10 Et erunt campestria in caulas gregum,
et vallis Achor in cubile armentorum,
populo meo qui requisierunt me.

11 Et vos qui dereliquistis Dominum,
qui obliti estis montem sanctum meum,
qui ponitis fortunæ mensam,
et libatis super eam:

12 numerabo vos in gladio,
et omnes in cæde corruetis:
pro eo quod vocavi, et non respondistis;
locutus sum, et non audistis;
et faciebatis malum in oculis meis,
et quæ nolui elegistis.

13 Propter hoc hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce servi mei comedent,
et vos esurietis;
ecce servi mei bibent,
et vos sitietis;

14 ecce servi mei lætabuntur,
et vos confundemini;
ecce servi mei laudabunt præ exsultatione cordis,
et vos clamabitis præ dolore cordis,
et præ contritione spiritus ululabitis,

15 et dimittetis nomen vestrum in juramentum electis meis;
et interficiet te Dominus Deus,
et servos suos vocabit nomine alio:

16 in quo qui benedictus est super terram
benedicetur in Deo, amen,
et qui jurat in terra
jurabit in Deo, amen:
quia oblivioni traditæ sunt angustiæ priores,
et quia absconditæ sunt ab oculis meis.

17 Ecce enim ego creo cælos novos,
et terram novam;
et non erunt in memoria priora,
et non ascendent super cor.

18 Sed gaudebitis et exsultabitis usque in sempiternum
in his quæ ego creo:
quia ecce ego creo Jerusalem exsultationem,
et populum ejus gaudium.

19 Et exsultabo in Jerusalem,
et gaudebo in populo meo,
et non audietur in eo ultra
vox fletus et vox clamoris.

20 Non erit ibi amplius infans dierum,
et senex qui non impleat dies suos,
quoniam puer centum annorum morietur,
et peccator centum annorum maledictus erit.

21 Et ædificabunt domos, et habitabunt;
et plantabunt vineas, et comedent fructus earum.

22 Non ædificabunt, et alius habitabit;
non plantabunt, et alius comedet:
secundum enim dies ligni erunt dies populi mei,
et opera manuum eorum inveterabunt.

23 Electi mei non laborabunt frustra,
neque generabunt in conturbatione,
quia semen benedictorum Domini est,
et nepotes eorum cum eis.

24 Eritque antequam clament, ego exaudiam;
adhuc illis loquentibus, ego audiam.

25 Lupus et agnus pascentur simul,
leo et bos comedent paleas,
et serpenti pulvis panis ejus.
Non nocebunt, neque occident
