1 Who is this that is come from Edom, [with] red garments from Bosor? thus fair in his apparel, with mighty strength? I speak of righteousness and saving judgment. 2 Wherefore are thy garments red, and thy raiment as [if fresh] from a trodden winepress? 3 I am full of trodden [grape], and of the nations there is not a man with me; and I trampled them in my fury, and dashed them to pieces as earth, and brought down their blood to the earth. 4 For the day of recompence has come upon them, and the year of redemption is at hand. 5 And I looked, and there was no helper; and I observed, and none upheld: therefore my arm delivered them, and mine anger drew nigh. 6 And I trampled them in mine anger, and brought down their blood to the earth. 7 I remembered the mercy of the Lord, the praises of the Lord in all things wherein he recompenses us. The Lord is a good judge to the house of Israel; he deals with us according to his mercy, and according to the abundance of his righteousness. 8 And he said, Is it not my people? the children surely will not be rebellious: and he became to them deliverance 9 out of all their affliction: not an ambassador, nor a messenger, but himself saved them, because he loved them and spared them: he himself redeemed them, and took them up, and lifted them up all the days of old. 10 But they disobeyed, and provoked his Holy Spirit: so he turned to be an enemy, he himself contended against them. 11 Then he remembered the ancient days, [saying], Where is he that brought up from the sea the shepherd of the sheep? where is he that put his Holy Spirit in them? 12 who led Moses with his right hand, the arm of his glory? he forced the water [to separate] from before him, to make himself an everlasting name. 13 He led them through the deep, as a horse through the wilderness, and they fainted not, 14 and as cattle through a plain: the Spirit came down from the Lord, and guided them: thus thou leddest thy people, to make thyself a glorious name. 15 Turn from heaven, and look from thy holy habitation and [from] thy glory: where is thy zeal and thy strength? where is the abundance of thy mercy and of thy compassions, that thou hast withholden thyself from us? 16 For thou art our Father; for [though] Abraham knew us not, and Israel did not acknowledge us, yet do thou, O Lord, our Father, deliver us: thy name has been upon us from the beginning. 17 Why hast thou caused us to err, O Lord, from thy way? [and] hast hardened our hearts, that we should not fear thee? Return for thy servants’ sake, for the sake of the tribes of thine inheritance, 18 that we may inherit a small part of thy holy mountain. 19 We are become as at the beginning, when thou didst not rule over us, and thy name was not called upon us. ΤΙΣ οὗτος ὁ παραγενόμενος ἐξ ᾿Εδώμ, ἐρύθημα ἱματίων ἐκ Βοσόρ, οὕτως ὡραῖος ἐν στολῇ βίᾳ μετὰ ἰσχύος; ἐγὼ διαλέγομαι δικαιοσύνην καὶ κρίσιν σωτηρίου. 2 διατί σου ἐρυθρὰ τὰ ἱμάτια καὶ τὰ ἐνδύματά σου ὡς ἀπὸ πατητοῦ ληνοῦ; 3 πλήρης καταπεπατημένης, καὶ τῶν ἐθνῶν οὐκ ἔστιν ἀνὴρ μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ κατεπάτησα αὐτοὺς ἐν θυμῷ μου καὶ κατέθλασα αὐτοὺς ὡς γῆν καὶ κατήγαγον τὸ αἷμα αὐτῶν εἰς γῆν. 4 ἡμέρα γὰρ ἀνταποδόσεως ἐπῆλθεν αὐτοῖς, καὶ ἐνιαυτὸς λυτρώσεως πάρεστι. 5 καὶ ἐπέβλεψα, καὶ οὐδεὶς βοηθός· καὶ προσενόησα, καὶ οὐθεὶς ἀντελαμβάνετο· καὶ ἐρρύσατο αὐτοὺς ὁ βραχίων μου, καὶ ὁ θυμός μου ἐπέστη. 6 καὶ κατεπάτησα αὐτοὺς τῇ ὀργῇ μου καὶ κατήγαγον τὸ αἷμα αὐτῶν εἰς γῆν. - 7 Τὸν ἔλεον Κυρίου ἐμνήσθην, τὰς ἀρετὰς Κυρίου ἐν πᾶσιν, οἷς ἡμῖν ἀνταποδίδωσι· Κύριος κριτὴς ἀγαθὸς τῷ οἴκῳ ᾿Ισραήλ, ἐπάγει ἡμῖν κατὰ τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ. 8 καὶ εἶπεν· οὐχ ὁ λαός μου τέκνα οὐ μὴ ἀθετήσωσι; καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτοῖς εἰς σωτηρίαν 9 ἐκ πάσης θλίψεως αὐτῶν. οὐ πρέσβυς οὐδὲ ἄγγελος, ἀλλ᾿ αὐτὸς Κύριος ἔσωσεν αὐτοὺς διὰ τὸ ἀγαπᾶν αὐτοὺς καὶ φείδεσθαι αὐτῶν· αὐτὸς ἐλυτρώσατο αὐτοὺς καὶ ἀνέλαβεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ὕψωσεν αὐτοὺς πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τοῦ αἰῶνος. 10 αὐτοὶ δὲ ἠπείθησαν καὶ παρώξυναν τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐστράφη αὐτοῖς εἰς ἔχθραν, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπολέμησεν αὐτούς. 11 καὶ ἐμνήσθη ἡμερῶν αἰωνίων ὁ ἀναβιβάσας ἐκ τῆς γῆς τὸν ποιμένα τῶν προβάτων· ποῦ ἔστιν ὁ θεὶς ἐν αὐτοῖς τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον; 12 ὁ ἀγαγὼν τῇ δεξιᾷ Μωυσῆν, ὁ βραχίων τῆς δόξης αὐτοῦ; κατίσχυσεν ὕδωρ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ ποιῆσαι ἑαυτῷ ὄνομα αἰώνιον. 13 ἤγαγεν αὐτοὺς διὰ τῆς ἀβύσσου ὡς ἵππον δι᾿ ἐρήμου, καὶ οὐκ ἐκοπίασαν. 14 καὶ ὡς κτήνη διὰ πεδίου, κατέβη πνεῦμα παρὰ Κυρίου καὶ ὡδήγησεν αὐτούς· οὕτως ἥγαγες τὸν λαόν σου ποιῆσαι σεαυτῷ ὄνομα δόξης. - 15 ᾿Επίστρεψον ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἰδὲ ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ ἁγίου σου καὶ δόξης· ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ ζῆλός σου καὶ ἡ ἰσχύς σου; ποῦ ἐστι τὸ πλῆθος τοῦ ἐλέους σου καὶ τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου, ὅτι ἀνέσχου ἡμῶν; 16 σὺ γὰρ εἶ πατὴρ ἡμῶν, ὅτι ῾Αβραὰμ οὐκ ἔγνω ἡμᾶς, καὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ οὐκ ἐπέγνω ἡμᾶς, ἀλλὰ σύ, Κύριε, πατὴρ ἡμῶν· ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς, ἀπ᾿ ἀρχῆς τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς ἐστι. 17 τί ἐπλάνησας ἡμᾶς, Κύριε, ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ σου; ἐσκλήρυνα τὰς καρδίας ἡμῶν τοῦ μὴ φοβεῖσθαί σε; ἐπίστρεψον διὰ τοὺς δούλους σου, διὰ τὰς φυλὰς τῆς κληρονομίας σου, 18 ἵνα μικρὸν κληρονομήσωμεν τοῦ ὄρους τοῦ ἁγίου σου, οἱ ὑπεναντίοι ἡμῶν κατεπάτησαν τὸ ἁγίασμά σου. 19 ἐγενόμεθα ὡς τὸ ἀπ᾿ ἀρχῆς, ὅτε οὐκ ἦρξας ἡμῶν οὐδὲ ἐπεκλήθη τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς.
