|1 See how the just man has perished, and no one lays [it] to heart: and righteous men are taken away, and no one considers: for the righteous has been removed out of the way of injustice. 2 His burial shall be in peace: he has been removed out of the way. 3 But draw ye near hither, ye lawless children, the seed of adulterers and the harlot. 4 Wherein have ye been rioting? and against whom have ye opened your mouth, and against whom have ye loosed your tongue? are ye not children of perdition? a lawless seed? 5 who call upon idols under the leafy trees, slaying your children in the valleys among the rocks? 6 That is thy portion, this is thy lot: and to them hast thou poured forth drink-offerings, and to these hast thou offered meat-offerings. Shall I not therefore be angry for these things? 7 On a lofty and high mountain, there is thy bed, and thither thou carriedst up thy meat-offerings: 8 and behind the posts of thy door thou didst place thy memorials. Didst thou think that if thou shouldest depart from me, thou wouldest gain? thou hast loved those that lay with thee; 9 and thou hast multiplied thy whoredom with them, and thou hast increased the number of them that are far from thee, and hast sent ambassadors beyond thy borders, and hast been debased even to hell. 10 Thou hast wearied thyself with thy many ways; yet thou saidst not, I will cease to strengthen myself: for thou has done these things; therefore thou has not supplicated me. 11 Through dread of whom hast thou feared, and lied against me, and has not remembered, nor considered me, nor regarded me, yea, though when I see thee I pass thee by, yet thou hast not feared me. 12 And I will declare thy righteousness, and thy sins, which shall not profit thee. 13 When thou criest out, let them deliver thee in thine affliction: for all these the wind shall take, and the tempest shall carry [them] away: but they that cleave to me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain. 14 And they shall say, Clear the ways before him, and take up the stumbling-blocks out of the way of my people. 15 Thus saith the Most High, who dwells on high for ever, Holy in the holies, is his name, the Most High resting in the holies, and giving patience to the faint-hearted, and giving life to the broken-hearted: 16 I will not take vengeance on you for ever, neither will I be always angry with you: for my Spirit shall go forth from me, and I have created all breath. 17 On account of sin for a little while I grieved him, and smote him, and turned away my face from him; and he was grieved, and he went on sorrowful in his was. 18 I have seen his ways, and healed him, and comforted him, and given him true comfort; 19 peace upon peace to them that are far off, and to them that are nigh: and the Lord has said, I will heal them. 20 But the unrighteous shall be tossed as troubled waves, and shall not be able to rest. 21 There is no joy to the ungodly, said God.||
ΙΔΕΤΕ ὡς ὁ δίκαιος ἀπώλετο, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐκδέχεται τῇ καρδίᾳ, καὶ ἄνδρες δίκαιοι αἴρονται, καὶ οὐδεὶς κατανοεῖ. ἀπὸ γὰρ προσώπου ἀδικίας ἦρται ὁ δίκαιος· 2 ἔσται ἐν εἰρήνῃ ἡ ταφὴ αὐτοῦ, ᾖρται ἐκ τοῦ μέσου 3 ὑμεῖς δὲ προσαγάγετε ὧδε, υἱοὶ ἄνομοι, σπέρμα μοιχῶν καὶ πόρνης· 4 ἐν τίνι ἐνετρυφήσατε; καὶ ἐπὶ τίνα ἠνοίξατε τὸ στόμα ὑμῶν; καὶ ἐπὶ τίνα ἐχαλάσατε τὴν γλῶσσαν ὑμῶν; οὐχ ὑμεῖς ἐστε τέκνα ἀπωλείας; σπέρμα ἄνομον; 5 οἱ παρακαλοῦντες εἴδωλα ὑπὸ δένδρα δασέα, σφάζοντες τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν ἐν ταῖς φάραγξιν ἀναμέσον τῶν πετρῶν. 6 ἐκείνη σου ἡ μερίς, οὗτός σου ὁ κλῆρος, κἀκείνοις ἐξέχεας σπονδὰς κἀκείνοις ἀνήνεγκας θυσίας· ἐπὶ τούτοις οὖν οὐκ ὀργισθήσομαι; 7 ἐπ᾿ ὄρος ὑψηλὸν καὶ μετέωρον, ἐκεῖ σου ἡ κοίτη, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἀνεβίβασας θυσίας σου. 8 καὶ ὀπίσω τῶν σταθμῶν τῆς θύρας σου ἔθηκας μνημόσυνά σου· ᾤου ὅτι ἐὰν ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἀποστῇς, πλεῖόν τι ἕξεις· ἠγάπησας τοὺς κοιμωμένους μετὰ σοῦ 9 καὶ ἐπλήθυνας τὴν πορνείαν σου μετ᾿ αὐτῶν καὶ πολλοὺς ἐποίησας τοὺς μακρὰν ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἀπέστειλας πρέσβεις ὑπὲρ τὰ ὅριά σου καὶ ἀπέστρεψας καὶ ἐταπεινώθης ἕως ᾅδου. 10 ταῖς πολιοδίαις σου ἐκοπίασας καὶ οὐκ εἶπας· παύσομαι ἐνισχύουσα, ὅτι ἔπραξας ταῦτα, διὰ τοῦτο οὐ κατεδεήθης μου σύ. 11 τίνα εὐλαβηθεῖσα ἐφοβήθης καὶ ἐψεύσω με καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθης μου, οὐδὲ ἔλαβές με εἰς τὴν διάνοιαν οὐδὲ εἰς τὴν καρδίαν σου; καὶ ἐγώ σε ἰδὼν παρορῶ, καὶ ἐμὲ οὐκ ἐφοβήθης. 12 καὶ ἐγὼ ἀπαγγελῶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην μου καὶ τὰ κακά σου, ἃ οὐκ ὠφελήσει σε. 13 ὅταν ἀναβοήσῃς, ἐξελέσθωσάν σε ἐν τῇ θλίψει σου· τούτους γὰρ πάντας ἄνεμος λήψεται καὶ ἀποίσει καταιγίς. οἱ δὲ ἀντεχόμενοί μου κτήσονται γῆν καὶ κληρονομήσουσι τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιόν μου. 14 καὶ ἐροῦσι· καθαρίσατε ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ ὁδοὺς καὶ ἄρατε σκῶλα ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ τοῦ λαοῦ μου. - 15 Τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ ῞Υψιστος, ὁ ἐν ὑψηλοῖς κατοικῶν τὸν αἰῶνα, ἅγιος ἐν ἁγίοις ὄνομα αὐτῷ, Κύριος ῞Υψιστος ἐν ἁγίοις ἀναπαυόμενος καὶ ὀλιγοψύχοις διδοὺς μακροθυμίαν καὶ διδοὺς ζωὴν τοῖς συντετριμμένοις τὴν καρδίαν· 16 οὐκ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἐκδικήσω ὑμᾶς, οὐδὲ διαπαντὸς ὀργισθήσομαι ὑμῖν· πνεῦμα γὰρ παρ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἐξελεύσεται καὶ πνοὴν πᾶσαν ἐγὼ ἐποίησα. 17 δι᾿ ἁμαρτίαν βραχύ τι ἐλύπησα αὐτὸν καὶ ἐπάταξα αὐτὸν καὶ ἀπέστρεψα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐλυπήθη καὶ ἐπορεύθη στυγνὸς ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ. 18 τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ ἑώρακα καὶ ἰασάμην αὐτὸν καὶ παρεκάλεσα αὐτὸν καὶ ἔδωκα αὐτῷ παράκλησιν ἀληθινήν, 19 εἰρήνην ἐπ᾿ εἰρήνῃ τοῖς μακρὰν καὶ τοῖς ἐγγὺς οὖσι. καὶ εἶπε Κύριος· ἰάσομαι αὐτούς, 20 οἱ δὲ ἄδικοι οὕτως κλυδωνισθήσονται καὶ ἀναπαύσασθαι οὐ δυνήσονται. 21 οὐκ ἔστι χαίρειν τοῖς ἀσεβέσιν, εἶπε Κύριος ὁ Θεός.
