5 Cursed is the man who trusts in man, and will lean his arm of flesh upon him, while his heart departs from the Lord. 6 And he shall be as the wild tamarisk in the desert: he shall not see when good comes; but he shall dwell in barren [places], and in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited. 7 But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord shall be. 8 And he shall be as a thriving tree by the waters, and he shall cast forth his root toward a moist place: he shall not fear when heat comes, and there shall be upon him shady branches: he shall not fear in a year of drought, and he shall not fail to bear fruit. 9 The heart is deep beyond all things, and it is the man, and who can know him? 10 I the Lord try the hearts, and prove the reins, to give to every one according to his ways, and according to the fruits of his devices. 11 The partridge utters her voice, she gathers [eggs] which she did not lay; [so is a man] gaining his wealth unjustly; in the midst of his days [his riches] shall leave him, and at his latter end he will be a fool. 12 An exalted throne of glory is our sanctuary. 13 O Lord, the hope of Israel, let all that have left thee be ashamed, let them that have revolted be written on the earth, because they have forsaken the fountain of life, the Lord. 14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for thou art my boast. 15 Behold, they say to me, Where is the word of the Lord? let it come. 16 But I have not been weary of following thee, nor have I desired the day of man; thou knowest; the [words] that proceed out of my lips are before thy face. 17 Be not to me a stranger, [but] spare me in the evil day. 18 Let them that persecute me be ashamed, but let me not be ashamed: let them be alarmed, but let me not be alarmed: bring upon them the evil day, crush them with double destruction. 19 Thus saith the Lord; Go and stand in the gates of the children of thy people, by which the kings of Juda enter, and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem: 20 and thou shalt say to them, Hear the word of the Lord, ye kings of Juda, and all Judea, and all Jerusalem, [all] who go in at these gates: 21 thus saith the Lord; Take heed to your souls, and take up no burdens on the sabbath-day, and go not forth [through] the gates of Jerusalem; 22 and carry forth no burdens out of your houses on the sabbath-day, and ye shall do no work: sanctify the sabbath-day, as I commanded your fathers. 23 But they hearkened not, and inclined not their ear, but stiffened their neck more than their fathers [did], so as not to hear me, and not to receive correction. 24 And it shall come to pass, if ye will hearken to me, saith the Lord, to carry in no burdens through the gates of this city on the sabbath-day, and to sanctify the sabbath-day, so as to do no work [upon it], 25 that there shall enter through the gates of this city kings and princes sitting on the throne of David, and riding on their chariots and horses, they, and their princes, the men of Juda, and the dwellers in Jerusalem: and this city shall be inhabited for ever. 26 And [men] shall come out of the cities of Juda, and from round about Jerusalem, and out of the land of Benjamin, and out of the plain country, and from the hill country, and from the south [country], bringing whole-burnt-offerings, and sacrifices, and incense, and manna, and frankincense, bringing praise to the house of the Lord. 27 But it shall come to pass, if ye will not hearken to me to sanctify the sabbath-day, to bear no burdens, nor go in [with them by] the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath-day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the streets of Jerusalem, and shall not be quenched. ΕΠΙΚΑΤΑΡΑΤΟΣ ὁ ἄνθρωπος, ὃς τὴν ἐλπίδα ἔχει ἐπ’ ἄνθρωπον καὶ στηρίζει σάρκα βραχίονος αὐτοῦ ἐπ’ αὐτόν, καὶ ἀπὸ Κυρίου ἀποστῇ ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ· 6 καὶ ἔσται ὡς ἡ ἀγριομυρίκη ἡ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, οὐκ ὄψεται ὅταν ἔλθῃ τὰ ἀγαθά, καὶ κατασκηνώσει ἐν ἁλίμοις καὶ ἐν ἐρήμῳ, ἐν γῇ ἁλμυρᾷ, ἥτις οὐ κατοικεῖται. 7 καὶ εὐλογημένος ὁ ἄνθρωπος, ὃς πέποιθεν ἐπὶ τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ ἔσται Κύριος ἐλπὶς αὐτοῦ· 8 καὶ ἔσται ὡς ξύλον εὐθηνοῦν παρ’ ὕδατα, καὶ ἐπὶ ἰκμάδα βαλεῖ ῥίζαν αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ φοβηθήσεται ὅταν ἔλθῃ καῦμα, καὶ ἔσται ἐπ’ αὐτῷ στελέχη ἀλσώδη, ἐν ἐνιαυτῷ ἀβροχίας οὐ φοβηθήσεται καὶ οὐ διαλείψει ποιῶν καρπόν. 9 βαθεῖα ἡ καρδία παρά πάντα, καὶ ἄνθρωπός ἐστι· καὶ τίς γνώσεται αὐτόν; 10 ἐγὼ Κύριος ἐτάζων καρδίας καὶ δοκιμάζων νεφροὺς τοῦ δοῦναι ἑκάστῳ κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ κατὰ τοὺς καρποὺς τῶν ἐπιτηδευμάτων αὐτοῦ. 11 ἐφώνησε πέρδιξ, συνήγαγεν ἃ οὐκ ἔτεκε· ποιῶν πλοῦτον αὐτοῦ οὐ μετὰ κρίσεως, ἐν ἡμίσει ἡμερῶν αὐτοῦ ἐγκαταλείψουσιν αὐτόν, καὶ ἐπ’ ἐσχάτων αὐτοῦ ἔσται ἄφρων. 12 θρόνος δόξης ὑψωμένος, ἁγίασμα ἡμῶν, 13 ὑπομονὴ ᾿Ισραήλ, Κύριε, πάντες οἱ καταλιπόντες σε καταισχυνθήτωσαν, ἀφεστηκότες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς γραφήτωσαν, ὅτι ἐγκατέλιπον πηγὴν ζωῆς, τὸν Κύριον. 14 ἴασαί με, Κύριε, καὶ ἰαθήσομαι· σῶσόν με, καὶ σωθήσομαι· ὅτι καύχημά μου σὺ εἶ. 15 ἰδοὺ αὐτοὶ λέγουσι πρός με· ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ λόγος Κυρίου; ἐλθέτω. 16 ἐγὼ δὲ οὐκ ἐκοπίασα κατακολουθῶν ὀπίσω σου καὶ ἡμέραν ἀνθρώπου οὐκ ἐπεθύμησα, σὺ ἐπίστῃ· τὰ ἐκπορευόμενα διὰ τῶν χειλέων μου πρὸ προσώπου σού ἐστι. 17 μὴ γενηθῇς μοι εἰς ἀλλοτρίωσιν φειδόμενός μου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πονηρᾷ. 18 καταισχυνθήτωσαν οἱ διώκοντές με, καὶ μὴ καταισχυνθείην ἐγώ· πτοηθείησαν αὐτοί, καὶ μὴ πτοηθείην ἐγώ· ἐπάγαγε ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς ἡμέραν πονηράν, δισσὸν σύντριμμα σύντριψον αὐτούς. 19 Τάδε λέγει Κύριος· βάδισον καὶ στῆθι ἐν ταῖς πύλαις υἱῶν λαοῦ σου, ἐν αἷς εἰσπορεύονται ἐν αὐταῖς βασιλεῖς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐν αἷς ἐκπορεύονται ἐν αὐταῖς, καὶ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πύλαις ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ 20 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς· ἀκούσατε τὸν λόγον Κυρίου, βασιλεῖς ᾿Ιούδα, καὶ πᾶσα ᾿Ιουδαία καὶ πᾶσα ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι ἐν ταῖς πύλαις ταύταις· 21 τάδε λέγει Κύριος· φυλάσσεσθε τὰς ψυχὰς ὑμῶν καὶ μὴ αἴρετε βαστάγματα ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῶν σαββάτων καὶ μὴ ἐκπορεύεσθε ταῖς πύλαις ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ 22 καὶ μὴ ἐκφέρετε βαστάγματα ἐξ οἰκιῶν ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῶν σαββάτων καὶ πᾶν ἔργον οὐ ποιήσετε· ἁγιάσατε τὴν ἡμέραν τῶν σαββάτων, καθὼς ἐνετειλάμην τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν, καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν καὶ οὐκ ἔκλιναν τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν 23 καὶ ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν ὑπὲρ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν τοῦ μὴ ἀκοῦσαί μου καὶ τοῦ μὴ δέξασθαι παιδείαν. 24 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν ἀκοῇ ἀκούσητέ μου, λέγει Κύριος, τοῦ μὴ εἰσφέρειν βαστάγματα διὰ τῶν πυλῶν τῆς πόλεως ταύτης ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῶν σαββάτων καὶ ἁγιάζειν τὴν ἡμέραν τῶν σαββάτων τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν πᾶν ἔργον, 25 καὶ εἰσελεύσονται διὰ τῶν πυλῶν τῆς πόλεως ταύτης βασιλεῖς καὶ ἄρχοντες καθήμενοι ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐπιβεβηκότες ἐφ’ ἅρμασι καὶ ἵπποις αὐτῶν, αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες αὐτῶν, ἄνδρες ᾿Ιούδα καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ κατοικισθήσεται ἡ πόλις αὕτη εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. 26 καὶ ἥξουσιν ἐκ τῶν πόλεων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ κυκλόθεν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἐκ γῆς Βενιαμὶν καὶ ἐκ γῆς πεδινῆς καὶ ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους καὶ ἐκ τῆς πρὸς νότον φέροντες ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ θυσίας καὶ θυμιάματα καὶ μαναὰ καὶ λίβανον, φέροντες αἴνεσιν εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου. 27 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν μὴ ἀκούσητέ μου τοῦ ἁγιάζειν τὴν ἡμέραν τῶν σαββάτων, τοῦ μὴ αἴρειν βαστάγματα καὶ μὴ εἰσπορεύεσθαι ταῖς πύλαις ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῶν σαββάτων, καὶ ἀνάψω πῦρ ἐν ταῖς πύλαις αὐτῆς, καὶ καταφάγεται ἄμφοδα ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ οὐ σβεσθήσεται.
