1 The burden of the word of the Lord, in the land of Sedrach, and his sacrifice [shall be] in Damascus; for the Lord looks upon men, and upon all the tribes of Israel. 2 And in Emath, [even] in her coasts, [are] Tyre and Sidon, because they were very wise. 3 And Tyrus built strong-holds for herself, and heaped up silver as dust, and gathered gold as the mire of the ways. 4 And therefore the Lord will take them for a possession, and will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be consumed with fire. 5 Ascalon shall see, and fear; Gaza also, and shall be greatly pained, and Accaron; for she is ashamed at her trespass; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ascalon shall not be inhabited. 6 And aliens shall dwell in Azotus, and I will bring down the pride of the Philistines. 7 And I will take their blood out of their mouth, and their abominations from between their teeth; and these also shall be left to our God, and they shall be as a captain of a thousand in Juda, and Accaron as a Jebusite. 8 And I will set up a defence for my house, that they may not pass through, nor turn back, neither shall there any more come upon them one to drive them away: for now have I seen with mine eyes. 9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Sion; proclaim [it] aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, the King is coming to thee, just, and a Saviour; he is meek and riding on an ass, and a young foal. 10 And he shall destroy the chariots out of Ephraim, and the horse out of Jerusalem, and the bow of war shall be utterly destroyed; and [there shall be] abundance and peace out of the nations; and he shall rule over the waters as far as the sea, and the rivers [to] the ends of the earth. 11 And thou by the blood of thy covenant has sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit that has no water. 12 Ye shall dwell in strongholds, ye prisoners of the congregation: and for one day of thy captivity I will recompense thee double. 13 For I have bent thee, O Juda, for myself [as] a bow, I have filled Ephraim; and I will raise up thy children, O Sion, against the children of the Greeks, and I will handle thee as the sword of a warrior. 14 And the Lord shall be over them, and [his] arrow shall go forth as lightning: and the Lord Almighty shall blow with the trumpet; and shall proceed with the tumult of his threatening. 15 The Lord Almighty shall protect them, and they shall destroy them, and overwhelm them with sling-stones; and they shall swallow them down as wine, and fill the bowls as the altar. 16 And the Lord their God shall save them in that day, [even] his people as a flock; for holy stones are rolled upon his land. 17 For if he has anything good, and if he has anything fair, the young [men shall have] corn, and [there shall be] fragrant wine to the virgins. ΛΗΜΜΑ λόγου Κυρίου· ἐν γῇ Σεδρὰχ καὶ Δαμασκοῦ θυσία αὐτοῦ, διότι Κύριος ἐφορᾷ ἀνθρώπους καὶ πάσας φυλὰς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 2 καὶ ἐν ᾿Εμὰθ ἐν τοῖς ὁρίοις αὐτῆς Τύρος καὶ Σιδών, διότι ἐφρόνησαν σφόδρα. 3 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε Τύρος ὀχυρώματα ἑαυτῇ καὶ ἐθησαύρισεν ἀργύριον ὡς χοῦν καὶ συνήγαγε χρυσίον ὡς πηλὸν ὁδῶν. 4 διὰ τοῦτο Κύριος κληρονομήσει αὐτὴν καὶ πατάξει εἰς θάλασσαν δύναμιν αὐτῆς, καὶ αὕτη ἐν πυρὶ καταναλωθήσεται. 5 ὄψεται ᾿Ασκάλων καὶ φοβηθήσεται, καὶ Γάζα καὶ ὀδυνηθήσεται σφόδρα, καὶ ᾿Ακκάρων, ὅτι ᾐσχύνθη ἐπὶ τῷ παραπτώματι αὐτῆς· καὶ ἀπολεῖται βασιλεὺς ἐκ Γάζης, καὶ ᾿Ασκάλων οὐ μὴ κατοικηθῇ. 6 καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἀλλογενεῖς ἐν ᾿Αζώτῳ, καὶ καθελῶ ὕβριν ἀλλοφύλων. 7 καὶ ἐξαρῶ τὸ αἷμα αὐτῶ ἐκ τοῦ στόματος αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἐκ μέσου ὀδόντων αὐτῶν, καὶ ὑπολειφθήσεται καὶ οὗτος τῷ Θεῷ ἡμῶν, καὶ ἔσονται ὡς χιλίαρχος ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ καὶ ᾿Ακκάρων ὡς ὁ ᾿Ιεβουσαῖος· 8 καὶ ὑποστήσομαι τῷ οἴκῳ μου ἀνάστημα τοῦ μὴ διαπορεύεσθαι μηδὲ ἀνακάμπτειν, καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐπέλθῃ ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς οὐκέτι ἐξελαύνων, διότι νῦν ἑώρακα ἐν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς μου. 9 Χαῖρε σφόδρα, θύγατερ Σιών· κήρυσσε, θύγατερ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς σου ἔρχεταί σοι, δίκαιος καὶ σῴζων αὐτός, πραΰς καὶ ἐπιβεβηκὼς ἐπὶ ὑποζύγιον καὶ πῶλον νέον. 10 καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσει ἅρματα ἐξ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ἵππον ἐξ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσεται τόξον πολεμικόν, καὶ πλῆθος καὶ εἰρήνη ἐξ ἐθνῶν· καὶ κατάρξει ὑδάτων ἕως θαλάσσης καὶ ἀπὸ ποταμῶν ἕως διεκβολῶν γῆς. 11 καὶ σὺ ἐν αἵματι διαθήκης σου ἐξαπέστειλας δεσμίους σου ἐκ λάκκου οὐκ ἔχοντος ὕδωρ. 12 καθήσεσθε ἐν ὀχυρώματι δέσμιοι τῆς συναγωγῆς, καὶ ἀντὶ μιᾶς ἡμέρας παροικεσίας σου διπλᾶ ἀνταποδώσω σοι· 13 διότι ἐνέτεινά σε, ᾿Ιούδα, ἐμαυτῷ εἰς τόξον, ἔπλησα τὸν ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ἐξεγερῶ τὰ τέκνα σου, Σιών, ἐπὶ τὰ τέκνα τῶν ῾Ελλήνων καὶ ψηλαφήσω σε ὡς ῥομφαίαν μαχητοῦ· 14 καὶ Κύριος ἔσται ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐξελεύσεται ὡς ἀστραπὴ βολίς, καὶ Κύριος παντοκράτωρ ἐν σάλπιγγι σαλπιεῖ καὶ πορεύσεται ἐν σάλῳ ἀπειλῆς αὐτοῦ. 15 Κύριος παντοκράτωρ ὑπερασπιεῖ αὐτούς, καὶ καταναλώσουσιν αὐτούς, καί καταχώσουσιν αὐτοὺς ἐν λίθοις σφενδόνης καὶ ἐκπίονται αὐτοὺς ὡς οἶνον καὶ πλήσουσιν ὡς φιάλας θυσιαστήριον. 16 καὶ σώσει αὐτοὺς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ, ὡς πρόβατα λαὸν αὐτοῦ, διότι λίθοι ἅγιοι κυλίονται ἐπὶ γῆς αὐτοῦ. 17 ὅτι εἴ τι ἀγαθὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἴ τι καλὸν παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ, σῖτος νεανίσκοις καὶ οἶνος εὐωδιάζων εἰς παρθένους.
