1 Israel is a vine with goodly branches, her fruit is abundant: according to the multitude of her fruits she has multiplied [her] altars; according to the wealth of his land, he has set up pillars. 2 They have divided their hearts; now shall they be utterly destroyed: he shall dig down their altars, their pillars shall mourn. 3 Because now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not the Lord: and what should a king do for us, 4 speaking false professions [as his] words? he will make a covenant: judgment shall spring up as a weed on the soil of the field. 5 The inhabitants of Samaria shall dwell near the calf of the house of On; for the people of it mourned for it: and as they provoked him, they shall rejoice at his glory, because he has departed from them. 6 And having bound it for the Assyrians, they carried it away as presents to king Jarim: Ephraim shall receive a gift, and Israel shall be ashamed of his counsel. 7 Samaria has cast off her king as a twig on the surface of the water. 8 And the altars of On, the sins of Israel, shall be taken away: thorns and thistles shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us. 9 From the time the hills [existed] Israel has sinned: there they stood: war [waged] against the children of iniquity 10 to chastise them shall not overtake them on the hill, the nations shall be gathered against them, when they are chastened for their two sins, 11 Ephraim is a heifer taught to love victory, but I will come upon the fairest part of her neck: I will mount Ephraim; I will pass over Juda in silence; Jacob shall prevail against him. 12 Sow to yourselves for righteousness, gather in for the fruit of life: light ye for yourselves the light of knowledge; seek the Lord till the fruits of righteousness come upon you. 13 Wherefore have ye passed over ungodliness in silence, and reaped the sins of it? ye have eaten false fruit; for thou has trusted in thy sins, in the abundance of thy power. 14 Therefore shall destruction rise up among thy people, and all thy strong places shall be ruined: as prince Salaman [departed] out of the house of Jerovaal, in the days of battle they dashed the mother to the ground upon the children, 15 thus will I do to you, O house of Israel, because of the unrighteousness of your sins. ΑΜΠΕΛΟΣ εὐκληματοῦσα ᾿Ισραήλ, ὁ καρπὸς εὐθηνῶν αὐτῆς· κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν καρπῶν αὐτῆς ἐπλήθυνε τὰ θυσιαστήρια, κατὰ τὰ ἀγαθὰ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ ᾠκοδόμησε στήλας. 2 ἐμέρισαν καρδίας αὐτῶν, νῦν ἀφανισθήσονται· αὐτὸς κατασκάψει τὰ θυσιαστήρια αὐτῶν, ταλαιπωρήσουσιν αἱ στῆλαι αὐτῶν. 3 διότι νῦν ἐροῦσιν· οὐκ ἔστι βασιλεὺς ἡμῖν, ὅτι οὐκ ἐφοβήθημεν τὸν Κύριον, ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς τί ποιήσει ἡμῖν; 4 λαλῶν ῥήματα προφάσεις ψευδεῖς διαθήσεται διαθήκην· ἀνατελεῖ ὡς ἄγρωστις κρίμα ἐπὶ χέρσον ἀγροῦ. 5 τῷ μόσχῳ τοῦ οἴκου ῏Ων παροικήσουσιν οἱ κατοικοῦντες Σαμάρειαν, ὅτι ἐπένθησε λαὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾿ αὐτόν· καὶ καθὼς παρεπίκραναν αὐτόν, ἐπιχαροῦνται ἐπὶ τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι μετῳκίσθη ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 6 καὶ αὐτὸν εἰς ᾿Ασσυρίους δήσαντες ἀπήνεγκαν ξένια τῷ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ιαρείμ· ἐν δόματι ᾿Εφραὶμ δέξεται, καὶ αἰσχυνθήσεται ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν τῇ βουλῇ αὐτοῦ. 7 ἀπέρριψε Σαμάρεια βασιλέα αὐτῆς ὡς φρύγανον ἐπὶ προσώπου ὕδατος. 8 καὶ ἐξαρθήσονται βωμοὶ ῏Ων, ἁμαρτήματα τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ· ἄκανθαι καὶ τρίβολοι ἀναβήσονται ἐπὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια αὐτῶν· καὶ ἐροῦσι τοῖς ὄρεσι· καλύψατε ἡμᾶς, καὶ τοῖς βουνοῖς· πέσατε ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς. - 9 ᾿Αφ᾿ οὗ οἱ βουνοί, ἥμαρτεν ᾿Ισραήλ, ἐκεῖ ἔστησαν· οὐ μὴ καταλάβῃ αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ βουνῷ πόλεμος ἐπὶ τὰ τέκνα ἀδικίας; 10 ἦλθε παιδεῦσαι αὐτούς, καὶ συναχθήσονται ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς λαοὶ ἐν τῷ παιδεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς ἐν ταῖς δυσὶν ἀδικίαις αὐτῶν. 11 ᾿Εφραὶμ δάμαλις δεδιδαγμένη ἀγαπᾶν νεῖκος, ἐγὼ δὲ ἀπελεύσομαι ἐπὶ τὸ κάλλιστον τοῦ τραχήλου αὐτῆς· ἐπιβιβῶ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ παρασιωπήσομαι ᾿Ιούδαν, ἐνισχύσει αὐτῷ ᾿Ιακώβ. 12 σπείρατε ἑαυτοῖς εἰς δικαιοσύνην, τρυγήσατε εἰς καρπὸν ζωῆς, φωτίσατε ἑαυτοῖς φῶς γνώσεως, ἐκζητήσατε τὸν Κύριον ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν γενήματα δικαιοσύνης ὑμῖν. 13 ἱνατὶ παρεσιωπήσατε ἀσέβειαν καὶ τὰς ἀδικίας αὐτῆς ἐτρυγήσατε; ἐφάγετε καρπὸν ψευδῆ, ὅτι ἤλπισας ἐν τοῖς ἁμαρτήμασί σου, ἐν πλήθει δυνάμεώς σου. 14 καὶ ἐξαναστήσεται ἀπώλεια ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου, καὶ πάντα τὰ περιτετειχισμένα σου οἰχήσεται· ὡς ἄρχων Σαλαμὰν ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ ῾Ιεροβάαλ, ἐν ἡμέραις πολέμου μητέρα ἐπὶ τέκνοις ἠδάφισαν. 15 οὕτως ποιήσω ὑμῖν, οἶκος τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, ἀπὸ προσώπου ἀδικίας κακιῶν ὑμῶν.
