Isaiah 66


1  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 The heaven8064 is my throne,3678 and the earth776 is my footstool:1916 7272 where335 is the house1004 that834 ye build1129 unto me? and where335 is the2088 place4725 of my rest?4496

2  For all3605 those428 things hath mine hand3027 made,6213 and all3605 those428 things have been,1961 saith5002 the LORD:3068 but to413 this2088 man will I look,5027 even to413 him that is poor6041 and of a contrite5223 spirit,7307 and trembleth2730 at5921 my word.1697

3  He that killeth7819 an ox7794 is as if he slew5221 a man;376 he that sacrificeth2076 a lamb,7716 as if he cut off a dog's neck;6202 3611 he that offereth5927 an oblation,4503 as if he offered swine's2386 blood;1818 he that burneth2142 incense,3828 as if he blessed1288 an idol.205 Yea,1571 they1992 have chosen977 their own ways,1870 and their soul5315 delighteth2654 in their abominations.8251

4  I589 also1571 will choose977 their delusions,8586 and will bring935 their fears4035 upon them; because3282 when I called,7121 none369 did answer;6030 when I spoke,1696 they did not3808 hear:8085 but they did6213 evil7451 before mine eyes,5869 and chose977 that in which834 I delighted2654 not.3808

5  Hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 ye that tremble2730 at413 his word;1697 Your brethren251 that hated8130 you, that cast you out5077 for my name's sake,4616 8034 said,559 Let the LORD3068 be glorified:3513 but he shall appear7200 to your joy,8057 and they1992 shall be ashamed.954

6  A voice6963 of noise7588 from the city,4480 5892 a voice6963 from the temple,4480 1964 a voice6963 of the LORD3068 that rendereth7999 recompense1576 to his enemies.341

7  Before2962 she travailed,2342 she brought forth;3205 before2962 her pain2256 came,935 she was delivered4422 of a man child.2145

8  Who4310 hath heard8085 such a thing?2063 who4310 hath seen7200 such things?428 Shall the earth776 be made to bring forth2342 in one259 day?3117 or shall a nation1471 be born3205 at once?259 6471 for3588 as soon1571 as Zion6726 travailed,2342 she brought forth3205 853 her children.1121

9  Shall I589 bring to the birth,7665 and not3808 cause to bring forth?3205 saith559 the LORD:3068 shall I589 cause to bring forth,3205 and shut6113 the womb? saith559 thy God.430

10  Rejoice8055 ye with854 Jerusalem,3389 and be glad1523 with her, all3605 ye that love157 her: rejoice7797 for joy4885 with854 her, all3605 ye that mourn56 for5921 her:

11  That4616 ye may suck,3243 and be satisfied7646 with the breasts4480 7699 of her consolations;8575 that4616 ye may milk out,4711 and be delighted6026 with the abundance4480 2123 of her glory.3519

12  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will extend5186 peace7965 to413 her like a river,5104 and the glory3519 of the Gentiles1471 like a flowing7857 stream:5158 then shall ye suck,3243 ye shall be borne5375 upon5921 her sides,6654 and be dandled8173 upon5921 her knees.1290

13  As one376 whom834 his mother517 comforteth,5162 so3651 will I595 comfort5162 you; and ye shall be comforted5162 in Jerusalem.3389

14  And when ye see7200 this, your heart3820 shall rejoice,7797 and your bones6106 shall flourish6524 like an herb:1877 and the hand3027 of the LORD3068 shall be known3045 toward854 his servants,5650 and his indignation2194 toward854 his enemies.341

15  For,3588 behold,2009 the LORD3068 will come935 with fire,784 and with his chariots4818 like a whirlwind,5492 to render7725 his anger639 with fury,2534 and his rebuke1606 with flames3851 of fire.784

16  For3588 by fire784 and by his sword2719 will the LORD3068 plead8199 with854 all3605 flesh:1320 and the slain2491 of the LORD3068 shall be many.7231

17  They that sanctify themselves,6942 and purify themselves2891 in413 the gardens1593 behind310 one259 tree in the midst,8432 eating398 swine's2386 flesh,1320 and the abomination,8263 and the mouse,5909 shall be consumed5486 together,3162 saith5002 the LORD.3068

18  For I595 know their works4639 and their thoughts:4284 it shall come,935 that I will gather6908 853 all3605 nations1471 and tongues;3956 and they shall come,935 and see7200 853 my glory.3519

19  And I will set7760 a sign226 among them, and I will send7971 those that escape6412 of them4480 unto413 the nations,1471 to Tarshish,8659 Pul,6322 and Lud,3865 that draw4900 the bow,7198 to Tubal,8422 and Javan,3120 to the isles339 afar off,7350 that834 have not3808 heard8085 853 my fame,8088 neither3808 have seen7200 853 my glory;3519 and they shall declare5046 853 my glory3519 among the Gentiles.1471

20  And they shall bring935 853 all3605 your brethren251 for an offering4503 unto the LORD3068 out of all4480 3605 nations1471 upon horses,5483 and in chariots,7393 and in litters,6632 and upon mules,6505 and upon swift beasts,3753 to5921 my holy6944 mountain2022 Jerusalem,3389 saith559 the LORD,3068 as834 the children1121 of Israel3478 bring935 853 an offering4503 in a clean2889 vessel3627 into the house1004 of the LORD.3068

21  And I will also1571 take3947 of4480 them for priests3548 and for Levites,3881 saith559 the LORD.3068

22  For3588 as834 the new2319 heavens8064 and the new2319 earth,776 which834 I589 will make,6213 shall remain5975 before6440 me, saith5002 the LORD,3068 so3651 shall your seed2233 and your name8034 remain.5975

23  And it shall come to pass,1961 that from4480 1767 one new moon2320 to another,2320 and from4480 1767 one sabbath7676 to another,7676 shall all3605 flesh1320 come935 to worship7812 before6440 me, saith559 the LORD.3068

24  And they shall go forth,3318 and look7200 upon the carcasses6297 of the men376 that have transgressed6586 against me: for3588 their worm8438 shall not3808 die,4191 neither3808 shall their fire784 be quenched;3518 and they shall be1961 an abhorring1860 unto all3605 flesh.1320


1 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ οὐρανός μοι θρόνος ἡ δὲ γῆ ὑποπόδιον τῶν ποδῶν μου ποῖον οἶκον οἰκοδομήσετέ μοι ἢ ποῖος τόπος τῆς καταπαύσεώς μου

2 πάντα γὰρ ταῦτα ἐποίησεν ἡ χείρ μου καὶ ἔστιν ἐμὰ πάντα ταῦτα λέγει κύριος καὶ ἐπὶ τίνα ἐπιβλέψω ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐπὶ τὸν ταπεινὸν καὶ ἡσύχιον καὶ τρέμοντα τοὺς λόγους μου

3 ὁ δὲ ἄνομος ὁ θύων μοι μόσχον ὡς ὁ ἀποκτέννων κύνα ὁ δὲ ἀναφέρων σεμίδαλιν ὡς αἷμα ὕειον ὁ διδοὺς λίβανον εἰς μνημόσυνον ὡς βλάσφημος καὶ οὗτοι ἐξελέξαντο τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἃ ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτῶν ἠθέλησεν

4 κἀγὼ ἐκλέξομαι τὰ ἐμπαίγματα αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἀνταποδώσω αὐτοῖς ὅτι ἐκάλεσα αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐχ ὑπήκουσάν μου ἐλάλησα καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν καὶ ἐποίησαν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον μου καὶ ἃ οὐκ ἐβουλόμην ἐξελέξαντο

5 ἀκούσατε τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου οἱ τρέμοντες τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ εἴπατε ἀδελφοὶ ἡμῶν τοῖς μισοῦσιν ἡμᾶς καὶ βδελυσσομένοις ἵνα τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου δοξασθῇ καὶ ὀφθῇ ἐν τῇ εὐφροσύνῃ αὐτῶν κἀκεῖνοι αἰσχυνθήσονται

6 φωνὴ κραυγῆς ἐκ πόλεως φωνὴ ἐκ ναοῦ φωνὴ κυρίου ἀνταποδιδόντος ἀνταπόδοσιν τοῖς ἀντικειμένοις

7 πρὶν ἢ τὴν ὠδίνουσαν τεκεῖν πρὶν ἐλθεῖν τὸν πόνον τῶν ὠδίνων ἐξέφυγεν καὶ ἔτεκεν ἄρσεν

8 τίς ἤκουσεν τοιοῦτο καὶ τίς ἑώρακεν οὕτως ἦ ὤδινεν γῆ ἐν μιᾷ ἡμέρᾳ ἢ καὶ ἐτέχθη ἔθνος εἰς ἅπαξ ὅτι ὤδινεν καὶ ἔτεκεν Σιων τὰ παιδία αὐτῆς

9 ἐγὼ δὲ ἔδωκα τὴν προσδοκίαν ταύτην καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθης μου εἶπεν κύριος οὐκ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ γεννῶσαν καὶ στεῖραν ἐποίησα εἶπεν ὁ θεός

10 εὐφράνθητι Ιερουσαλημ καὶ πανηγυρίσατε ἐν αὐτῇ πάντες οἱ ἀγαπῶντες αὐτήν χάρητε χαρᾷ πάντες ὅσοι πενθεῖτε ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς

11 ἵνα θηλάσητε καὶ ἐμπλησθῆτε ἀπὸ μαστοῦ παρακλήσεως αὐτῆς ἵνα ἐκθηλάσαντες τρυφήσητε ἀπὸ εἰσόδου δόξης αὐτῆς

12 ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐκκλίνω εἰς αὐτοὺς ὡς ποταμὸς εἰρήνης καὶ ὡς χειμάρρους ἐπικλύζων δόξαν ἐθνῶν τὰ παιδία αὐτῶν ἐπ᾽ ὤμων ἀρθήσονται καὶ ἐπὶ γονάτων παρακληθήσονται

13 ὡς εἴ τινα μήτηρ παρακαλέσει οὕτως καὶ ἐγὼ παρακαλέσω ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ παρακληθήσεσθε

14 καὶ ὄψεσθε καὶ χαρήσεται ὑμῶν ἡ καρδία καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ ὑμῶν ὡς βοτάνη ἀνατελεῖ καὶ γνωσθήσεται ἡ χεὶρ κυρίου τοῖς σεβομένοις αὐτόν καὶ ἀπειλήσει τοῖς ἀπειθοῦσιν

15 ἰδοὺ γὰρ κύριος ὡς πῦρ ἥξει καὶ ὡς καταιγὶς τὰ ἅρματα αὐτοῦ ἀποδοῦναι ἐν θυμῷ ἐκδίκησιν καὶ ἀποσκορακισμὸν ἐν φλογὶ πυρός

16 ἐν γὰρ τῷ πυρὶ κυρίου κριθήσεται πᾶσα ἡ γῆ καὶ ἐν τῇ ῥομφαίᾳ αὐτοῦ πᾶσα σάρξ πολλοὶ τραυματίαι ἔσονται ὑπὸ κυρίου

17 οἱ ἁγνιζόμενοι καὶ καθαριζόμενοι εἰς τοὺς κήπους καὶ ἐν τοῖς προθύροις ἔσθοντες κρέας ὕειον καὶ τὰ βδελύγματα καὶ τὸν νῦν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἀναλωθήσονται εἶπεν κύριος

18 κἀγὼ τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν καὶ τὸν λογισμὸν αὐτῶν ἐπίσταμαι ἔρχομαι συναγαγεῖν πάντα τὰ ἔθνη καὶ τὰς γλώσσας καὶ ἥξουσιν καὶ ὄψονται τὴν δόξαν μου

19 καὶ καταλείψω ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν σημεῖα καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ ἐξ αὐτῶν σεσῳσμένους εἰς τὰ ἔθνη εἰς Θαρσις καὶ Φουδ καὶ Λουδ καὶ Μοσοχ καὶ Θοβελ καὶ εἰς τὴν Ἑλλάδα καὶ εἰς τὰς νήσους τὰς πόρρω οἳ οὐκ ἀκηκόασίν μου τὸ ὄνομα οὐδὲ ἑωράκασιν τὴν δόξαν μου καὶ ἀναγγελοῦσίν μου τὴν δόξαν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν

20 καὶ ἄξουσιν τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν ἐκ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν δῶρον κυρίῳ μεθ᾽ ἵππων καὶ ἁρμάτων ἐν λαμπήναις ἡμιόνων μετὰ σκιαδίων εἰς τὴν ἁγίαν πόλιν Ιερουσαλημ εἶπεν κύριος ὡς ἂν ἐνέγκαισαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐμοὶ τὰς θυσίας αὐτῶν μετὰ ψαλμῶν εἰς τὸν οἶκον κυρίου

21 καὶ ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν λήμψομαι ἐμοὶ ἱερεῖς καὶ Λευίτας εἶπεν κύριος

22 ὃν τρόπον γὰρ ὁ οὐρανὸς καινὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ καινή ἃ ἐγὼ ποιῶ μένει ἐνώπιόν μου λέγει κύριος οὕτως στήσεται τὸ σπέρμα ὑμῶν καὶ τὸ ὄνομα ὑμῶν

23 καὶ ἔσται μῆνα ἐκ μηνὸς καὶ σάββατον ἐκ σαββάτου ἥξει πᾶσα σὰρξ ἐνώπιόν μου προσκυνῆσαι ἐν Ιερουσαλημ εἶπεν κύριος

24 καὶ ἐξελεύσονται καὶ ὄψονται τὰ κῶλα τῶν ἀνθρώπων τῶν παραβεβηκότων ἐν ἐμοί ὁ γὰρ σκώληξ αὐτῶν οὐ τελευτήσει καὶ τὸ πῦρ αὐτῶν οὐ σβεσθήσεται καὶ ἔσονται εἰς ὅρασιν πάσῃ σαρκί

1 [Hæc dicit Dominus: Cælum sedes mea,
terra autem scabellum pedum meorum.
Quæ est ista domus quam ædificabitis mihi?
et quis est iste locus quietis meæ?

2 Omnia hæc manus mea fecit,
et facta sunt universa ista,
dicit Dominus;
ad quem autem respiciam, nisi ad pauperculum,
et contritum spiritu, et trementem sermones meos?

3 Qui immolat bovem, quasi qui interficiat virum;
qui mactat pecus, quasi qui excerebret canem;
qui offert oblationem, quasi qui sanguinem suillum offerat;
qui recordatur thuris, quasi qui benedicat idolo.
Hæc omnia elegerunt in viis suis,
et in abominationibus suis anima eorum delectata est.

4 Unde et ego eligam illusiones eorum,
et quæ timebant adducam eis;
quia vocavi, et non erat qui responderet;
locutus sum, et non audierunt;
feceruntque malum in oculis meis,
et quæ nolui elegerunt.

5 Audite verbum Domini,
qui tremitis ad verbum ejus.
Dixerunt fratres vestri odientes vos,
et abjicientes propter nomen meum:
Glorificetur Dominus,
et videbimus in lætitia vestra;
ipsi autem confundentur.

6 Vox populi de civitate,
vox de templo,
vox Domini
reddentis retributionem inimicis suis.

7 Antequam parturiret, peperit;
antequam veniret partus ejus,
peperit masculum.

8 Quis audivit umquam tale?
et quis vidit huic simile?
numquid parturiet terra in die una,
aut parietur gens simul,
quia parturivit et peperit
Sion filios suos?

9 Numquid ego qui alios parere facio, ipse non pariam?
dicit Dominus.
Si ego, qui generationem ceteris tribuo, sterilis ero?
ait Dominus Deus tuus.

10 Lætamini cum Jerusalem et exsultate in ea,
omnes qui diligitis eam;
gaudete cum ea gaudio,
universi qui lugetis super eam:

11 ut sugatis et repleamini
ab ubere consolationis ejus;
ut mulgeatis et deliciis affluatis
ab omnimoda gloria ejus.

12 Quia hæc dicit Dominus:
Ecce ego declinabo super eam quasi fluvium pacis,
et quasi torrentem inundantem gloriam gentium,
quam sugetis:
ad ubera portabimini,
et super genua blandientur vobis.

13 Quomodo si cui mater blandiatur,
ita ego consolabor vos,
et in Jerusalem consolabimini.

14 Videbitis, et gaudebit cor vestrum,
et ossa vestra quasi herba germinabunt:
et cognoscetur manus Domini servis ejus,
et indignabitur inimicis suis.

15 Quia ecce Dominus in igne veniet,
et quasi turbo quadrigæ ejus,
reddere in indignatione furorem suum
et increpationem suam in flamma ignis:

16 quia in igne Dominus dijudicabit,
et in gladio suo ad omnem carnem;
et multiplicabuntur interfecti a Domino,

17 qui sanctificabantur et mundos se putabant in hortis
post januam intrinsecus,
qui comedebant carnem suillam,
et abominationem et murem:
simul consumentur, dicit Dominus.

18 Ego autem opera eorum et cogitationes eorum
venio ut congregem,
cum omnibus gentibus et linguis:
et venient, et videbunt gloriam meam.

19 Et ponam in eis signum,
et mittam ex eis qui salvati fuerint, ad gentes
in mare, in Africam, et Lydiam, tendentes sagittam;
in Italiam et Græciam,
ad insulas longe,
ad eos qui non audierunt de me,
et non viderunt gloriam meam.
Et annuntiabunt gloriam meam gentibus;

20 et adducent omnes fratres vestros
de cunctis gentibus
donum Domino,
in equis, et in quadrigis, et in lecticis,
et in mulis, et in carrucis,
ad montem sanctum meum
Jerusalem, dicit Dominus:
quomodo si inferant filii Israël munus
in vase mundo in domum Domini.

21 Et assumam ex eis
in sacerdotes et Levitas, dicit Dominus.

22 Quia sicut cæli novi et terra nova,
quæ ego facio stare coram me, dicit Dominus,
sic stabit semen vestrum et nomen vestrum.

23 Et erit mensis ex mense,
et sabbatum ex sabbato:
veniet omnis caro ut adoret coram facie mea,
dicit Dominus.

24 Et egredientur, et videbunt cadavera
virorum qui prævaricati sunt in me;
vermis eorum non morietur,
et ignis eorum non extinguetur:
et erunt usque ad satietatem visionis omni carni.]
