1 Woe to them that set at nought Sion, and that trust in the mountain of Samaria: they have gathered [the harvest of] the heads of the nations, and they have gone in themselves. 2 O house of Israel, pass by all [of you], and see; and pass by thence to Ematrabba; and thence descend to Geth of the Philistines, the chief of all these kingdoms, [see] if their coasts are greater than your coasts. 3 Ye who are approaching the evil day, who are drawing near and adopting false sabbaths; 4 who sleep upon beds of ivory, and live delicately on their couches, and eat kids out of the flocks, and sucking calves out of the midst of the stalls; 5 who excel in the sound of musical instruments; they have regarded them as abiding, not as fleeting [pleasures]; 6 who drink strained wine, and anoint themselves with the best ointment; and have suffered nothing on occasion of the calamity of Joseph. 7 Therefore now shall they depart into captivity from the dominion of princes, and the neighing of horses shall be cut off from Ephraim. 8 For the Lord has sworn by himself, [saying], Because I abhor all the pride of Jacob, I do also hate his countries, and I will cut off [his] city with all who inhabit it. 9 And it shall come to pass, if there be ten men left in one house, that they shall die. 10 But a remnant shall be left behind, and their relations shall take them, and shall strenuously endeavor to carry forth their bones from the house: and one shall say to the heads of the house, Is there yet [any one] else with thee? And he shall say, No [one] else. And [the other] shall say, Be silent, that thou name not the name of the Lord. 11 For, behold, the Lord commands, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with rents. 12 Will horses run upon rocks? will they refrain from neighing at mares? for ye have turned judgment into poison, and the fruit of righteousness into bitterness: 13 ye who rejoice at vanity, who say, Have we not possessed horns by our own strength? 14 For behold, O house of Israel, I will raise up against you a nation, saith the Lord of hosts; and they shall afflict you so that ye shall not enter into Aemath, and as it were [from] the river of the wilderness. ΟΥΑΙ τοῖς ἐξουθενοῦσι Σιὼν καὶ τοῖς πεποιθόσιν ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος Σαμαρείας· ἀπετρύγησαν ἀρχὰς ἐθνῶν, καὶ εἰσῆλθον αὐτοί. οἶκος τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, 2 διάβητε πάντες καὶ ἴδετε καὶ διέλθατε ἐκεῖθεν εἰς ᾿Εμαθραββὰ καὶ κατάβητε ἐκεῖθεν εἰς Γὲθ ἀλλοφύλων, τὰς κρατίστας ἐκ πασῶν τῶν βασιλειῶν τούτων, εἰ πλείονα τὰ ὅρια αὐτῶν ἐστι τῶν ὑμετέρων ὁρίων. 3 οἱ ἐρχόμενοι εἰς ἡμέραν κακήν, οἱ ἐγγίζοντες καὶ ἐφαπτόμενοι σαββάτων ψευδῶν, 4 οἱ καθεύδοντες ἐπὶ κλινῶν ἐλεφαντίνων καὶ κατασπαταλῶντες ἐπὶ ταῖς στρωμναῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἔσθοντες ἐρίφους ἐκ ποιμνίων καὶ μοσχάρια ἐκ μέσου βουκολίων γαλαθηνά, 5 οἱ ἐπικροτοῦντες πρὸς τὴν φωνὴν τῶν ὀργάνων, ὡς ἑστηκότα ἐλογίσαντο καὶ οὐχ ὡς φεύγοντα· 6 οἱ πίνοντες τὸν διυλισμένον οἶνον καὶ τὰ πρῶτα μῦρα χριόμενοι καὶ οὐκ ἔπασχον οὐδὲν ἐπὶ τῇ συντριβῇ ᾿Ιωσήφ. 7 διὰ τοῦτο νῦν ἀχμάλωτοι ἔσονται ἀπ᾿ ἀρχῆς δυναστῶν καὶ ἐξαρθήσεται χρεμετισμὸς ἵππων ἐξ ᾿Εφραίμ. 8 ὅτι ὤμοσε Κύριος καθ᾿ ἑαυτοῦ· διότι βδελύσσομαι ἐγὼ πᾶσα τὴν ὕβριν ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ τάς χώρας αὐτοῦ μεμίσηκα, καὶ ἐξαρῶ πόλιν σὺν πᾶσι τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν αὐτήν· 9 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν ὑπολειφθῶσι δέκα ἄνδρες ἐν οἰκίᾳ μιᾷ, καὶ ἀποθανοῦνται, 10 καὶ ὑπολειφθήσονται οἱ κατάλοιποι, καὶ λήψονται οἱ οἰκεῖοι αὐτῶν καὶ παραβιῶνται τοῦ ἐξενέγκαι τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτῶν ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου· καὶ ἐρεῖ τοῖς προεστηκόσι τῆς οἰκίας· εἰ ἔτι ὑπάρχει παρὰ σοί; 11 καὶ ἐρεῖ· οὐκέτι· καὶ ἐρεῖ· σίγα, ἕνεκα τοῦ μὴ ὀνομάσαι τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου. 12 διότι ἰδοὺ Κύριος ἐντέλλεται καὶ πατάξει τὸν οἶκον τὸν μέγαν θλάσμασι καὶ τὸν οἶκον τὸν μικρὸν ῥάγμασιν. 13 εἰ διώξονται ἐν πέτραις ἵπποι; εἰ παρασιωπήσονται ἐν θηλείαις; ὅτι ἐξεστρέψατε εἰς θυμὸν κρίμα καὶ καρπὸν δικαιοσύνης εἰς πικρίαν, 14 οἱ εὐφραινόμενοι ἐπ᾿ οὐδενὶ λόγῳ, οἱ λέγοντες· οὐκ ἐν τῇ ἰσχύϊ ἡμῶν ἔσχομεν κέρατα; 15 διότι ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπεγερῶ ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς, οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ, ἔθνος, λέγει Κύριος τῶν δυνάμεων, καὶ ἐκθλίψουσιν ὑμᾶς τοῦ μὴ εἰσελθεῖν εἰς ᾿Εμὰθ καὶ ὡς τοῦ χειμάρρου τῶν δυσμῶν.
