Isaiah 5


1  Now4994 will I sing7891 to my well-beloved3039 a song7892 of my beloved1730 touching his vineyard.3754 My well-beloved3039 hath1961 a vineyard3754 in a very fruitful hill:1121 8081 7161

2  And he fenced5823 it, and gathered out the stones5619 thereof, and planted5193 it with the choicest vine,8321 and built1129 a tower4026 in the midst8432 of it, and also1571 made2672 a winepress3342 therein: and he looked6960 that it should bring forth6213 grapes,6025 and it brought forth6213 wild grapes.891

3  And now,6258 O inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 and men376 of Judah,3063 judge,8199 I pray you,4994 between996 me and my vineyard.3754

4  What4100 could have been done6213 more5750 to my vineyard,3754 that I have not3808 done6213 in it? wherefore,4069 when I looked6960 that it should bring forth6213 grapes,6025 brought it forth6213 wild grapes?891

5  And now6258 go to; I will tell3045 4994 you 853 what834 I589 will do6213 to my vineyard:3754 I will take away5493 the hedge4881 thereof, and it shall be1961 eaten up;1197 and break down6555 the wall1447 thereof, and it shall be1961 trodden down:4823

6  And I will lay7896 it waste:1326 it shall not3808 be pruned,2167 nor3808 digged;5737 but there shall come up5927 briers8068 and thorns:7898 I will also command6680 5921 the clouds5645 that they rain no rain4480 4305 4306 upon5921 it.

7  For3588 the vineyard3754 of the LORD3068 of hosts6635 is the house1004 of Israel,3478 and the men376 of Judah3063 his pleasant8191 plant:5194 and he looked6960 for judgment,4941 but behold2009 oppression;4939 for righteousness,6666 but behold2009 a cry.6818

8  Woe1945 unto them that join5060 house1004 to house,1004 that lay7126 field7704 to field,7704 till5704 there be no657 place,4725 that they may be placed3427 alone905 in the midst7130 of the earth!776

9  In mine ears241 said the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 Of a truth518 3808 many7227 houses1004 shall be1961 desolate,8047 even great1419 and fair,2896 without4480 369 inhabitant.3427

10  Yea,3588 ten6235 acres6776 of vineyard3754 shall yield6213 one259 bath,1324 and the seed2233 of a homer2563 shall yield6213 an ephah.374

11  Woe1945 unto them that rise up early7925 in the morning,1242 that they may follow7291 strong drink;7941 that continue309 until night,5399 till wine3196 inflame1814 them!

12  And the harp,3658 and the viol,5035 the tabret,8596 and pipe,2485 and wine,3196 are1961 in their feasts:4960 but they regard5027 not3808 the work6467 of the LORD,3068 neither3808 consider7200 the operation4639 of his hands.3027

13  Therefore3651 my people5971 are gone into captivity,1540 because they have no4480 1097 knowledge:1847 and their honorable3519 men4962 are famished,7458 and their multitude1995 dried up6704 with thirst.6772

14  Therefore3651 hell7585 hath enlarged7337 herself,5315 and opened6473 her mouth6310 without1097 measure:2706 and their glory,1926 and their multitude,1995 and their pomp,7588 and he that rejoiceth,5938 shall descend3381 into it.

15  And the mean man120 shall be brought down,7817 and the mighty man376 shall be humbled,8213 and the eyes5869 of the lofty1364 shall be humbled:8213

16  But the LORD3068 of hosts6635 shall be exalted1361 in judgment,4941 and God410 that is holy6918 shall be sanctified6942 in righteousness.6666

17  Then shall the lambs3532 feed7462 after their manner,1699 and the waste places2723 of the fat ones4220 shall strangers1481 eat.398

18  Woe1945 unto them that draw4900 iniquity5771 with cords2256 of vanity,7723 and sin2402 as it were with a cart5699 rope:5688

19  That say,559 Let him make speed,4116 and hasten2363 his work,4639 that4616 we may see7200 it: and let the counsel6098 of the Holy One6918 of Israel3478 draw nigh7126 and come,935 that we may know3045 it!

20  Woe1945 unto them that call559 evil7451 good,2896 and good2896 evil;7451 that put7760 darkness2822 for light,216 and light216 for darkness;2822 that put7760 bitter4751 for sweet,4966 and sweet4966 for bitter!4751

21  Woe1945 unto them that are wise2450 in their own eyes,5869 and prudent995 in5048 their own sight!6440

22  Woe1945 unto them that are mighty1368 to drink8354 wine,3196 and men376 of strength2428 to mingle4537 strong drink:7941

23  Which justify6663 the wicked7563 for6118 reward,7810 and take away5493 the righteousness6666 of the righteous6662 from4480 him!

24  Therefore3651 as the fire784 devoureth398 the stubble,7179 and the flame3852 consumeth7503 the chaff,2842 so their root8328 shall be1961 as rottenness,4716 and their blossom6525 shall go up5927 as dust:80 because3588 they have cast away3988 853 the law8451 of the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 and despised5006 the word565 of the Holy One6918 of Israel.3478

25  Therefore5921 3651 is the anger639 of the LORD3068 kindled2734 against his people,5971 and he hath stretched forth5186 his hand3027 against5921 them, and hath smitten5221 them: and the hills2022 did tremble,7264 and their carcasses5038 were torn1961 5478 in the midst7130 of the streets.2351 For all3605 this2063 his anger639 is not3808 turned away,7725 but his hand3027 is stretched out5186 still.5750

26  And he will lift up5375 an ensign5251 to the nations1471 from far,4480 7350 and will hiss8319 unto them from the end4480 7097 of the earth:776 and, behold,2009 they shall come935 with speed4120 swiftly:7031

27  None369 shall be weary5889 nor369 stumble3782 among them; none3808 shall slumber5123 nor3808 sleep;3462 neither3808 shall the girdle232 of their loins2504 be loosed,6605 nor3808 the latchet8288 of their shoes5275 be broken:5423

28  Whose834 arrows2671 are sharp,8150 and all3605 their bows7198 bent,1869 their horses'5483 hooves6541 shall be counted2803 like flint,6864 and their wheels1534 like a whirlwind:5492

29  Their roaring7581 shall be like a lion,3833 they shall roar7580 like young lions:3715 yea, they shall roar,5098 and lay hold270 of the prey,2964 and shall carry it away safe,6403 and none369 shall deliver5337 it.

30  And in that1931 day3117 they shall roar5098 against5921 them like the roaring5100 of the sea:3220 and if one look5027 unto the land,776 behold2009 darkness2822 and sorrow,6862 and the light216 is darkened2821 in the heavens6183 thereof.


1 ᾄσω δὴ τῷ ἠγαπημένῳ ᾆσμα τοῦ ἀγαπητοῦ τῷ ἀμπελῶνί μου ἀμπελὼν ἐγενήθη τῷ ἠγαπημένῳ ἐν κέρατι ἐν τόπῳ πίονι

2 καὶ φραγμὸν περιέθηκα καὶ ἐχαράκωσα καὶ ἐφύτευσα ἄμπελον σωρηχ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησα πύργον ἐν μέσῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ προλήνιον ὤρυξα ἐν αὐτῷ καὶ ἔμεινα τοῦ ποιῆσαι σταφυλήν ἐποίησεν δὲ ἀκάνθας

3 καὶ νῦν ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Ιουδα καὶ οἱ ἐνοικοῦντες ἐν Ιερουσαλημ κρίνατε ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ ἀμπελῶνός μου

4 τί ποιήσω ἔτι τῷ ἀμπελῶνί μου καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησα αὐτῷ διότι ἔμεινα τοῦ ποιῆσαι σταφυλήν ἐποίησεν δὲ ἀκάνθας

5 νῦν δὲ ἀναγγελῶ ὑμῖν τί ποιήσω τῷ ἀμπελῶνί μου ἀφελῶ τὸν φραγμὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσται εἰς διαρπαγήν καὶ καθελῶ τὸν τοῖχον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσται εἰς καταπάτημα

6 καὶ ἀνήσω τὸν ἀμπελῶνά μου καὶ οὐ μὴ τμηθῇ οὐδὲ μὴ σκαφῇ καὶ ἀναβήσεται εἰς αὐτὸν ὡς εἰς χέρσον ἄκανθα καὶ ταῖς νεφέλαις ἐντελοῦμαι τοῦ μὴ βρέξαι εἰς αὐτὸν ὑετόν

7 ὁ γὰρ ἀμπελὼν κυρίου σαβαωθ οἶκος τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐστίν καὶ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Ιουδα νεόφυτον ἠγαπημένον ἔμεινα τοῦ ποιῆσαι κρίσιν ἐποίησεν δὲ ἀνομίαν καὶ οὐ δικαιοσύνην ἀλλὰ κραυγήν

8 οὐαὶ οἱ συνάπτοντες οἰκίαν πρὸς οἰκίαν καὶ ἀγρὸν πρὸς ἀγρὸν ἐγγίζοντες ἵνα τοῦ πλησίον ἀφέλωνταί τι μὴ οἰκήσετε μόνοι ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

9 ἠκούσθη γὰρ εἰς τὰ ὦτα κυρίου σαβαωθ ταῦτα ἐὰν γὰρ γένωνται οἰκίαι πολλαί εἰς ἔρημον ἔσονται μεγάλαι καὶ καλαί καὶ οὐκ ἔσονται οἱ ἐνοικοῦντες ἐν αὐταῖς

10 οὗ γὰρ ἐργῶνται δέκα ζεύγη βοῶν ποιήσει κεράμιον ἕν καὶ ὁ σπείρων ἀρτάβας ἓξ ποιήσει μέτρα τρία

11 οὐαὶ οἱ ἐγειρόμενοι τὸ πρωὶ καὶ τὸ σικερα διώκοντες οἱ μένοντες τὸ ὀψέ ὁ γὰρ οἶνος αὐτοὺς συγκαύσει

12 μετὰ γὰρ κιθάρας καὶ ψαλτηρίου καὶ τυμπάνων καὶ αὐλῶν τὸν οἶνον πίνουσιν τὰ δὲ ἔργα κυρίου οὐκ ἐμβλέπουσιν καὶ τὰ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ οὐ κατανοοῦσιν

13 τοίνυν αἰχμάλωτος ὁ λαός μου ἐγενήθη διὰ τὸ μὴ εἰδέναι αὐτοὺς τὸν κύριον καὶ πλῆθος ἐγενήθη νεκρῶν διὰ λιμὸν καὶ δίψαν ὕδατος

14 καὶ ἐπλάτυνεν ὁ ᾅδης τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ διήνοιξεν τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ τοῦ μὴ διαλιπεῖν καὶ καταβήσονται οἱ ἔνδοξοι καὶ οἱ μεγάλοι καὶ οἱ πλούσιοι καὶ οἱ λοιμοὶ αὐτῆς

15 καὶ ταπεινωθήσεται ἄνθρωπος καὶ ἀτιμασθήσεται ἀνήρ καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ οἱ μετέωροι ταπεινωθήσονται

16 καὶ ὑψωθήσεται κύριος σαβαωθ ἐν κρίματι καὶ ὁ θεὸς ὁ ἅγιος δοξασθήσεται ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ

17 καὶ βοσκηθήσονται οἱ διηρπασμένοι ὡς ταῦροι καὶ τὰς ἐρήμους τῶν ἀπειλημμένων ἄρνες φάγονται

18 οὐαὶ οἱ ἐπισπώμενοι τὰς ἁμαρτίας ὡς σχοινίῳ μακρῷ καὶ ὡς ζυγοῦ ἱμάντι δαμάλεως τὰς ἀνομίας

19 οἱ λέγοντες τὸ τάχος ἐγγισάτω ἃ ποιήσει ἵνα ἴδωμεν καὶ ἐλθάτω ἡ βουλὴ τοῦ ἁγίου Ισραηλ ἵνα γνῶμεν

20 οὐαὶ οἱ λέγοντες τὸ πονηρὸν καλὸν καὶ τὸ καλὸν πονηρόν οἱ τιθέντες τὸ σκότος φῶς καὶ τὸ φῶς σκότος οἱ τιθέντες τὸ πικρὸν γλυκὺ καὶ τὸ γλυκὺ πικρόν

21 οὐαὶ οἱ συνετοὶ ἐν ἑαυτοῖς καὶ ἐνώπιον ἑαυτῶν ἐπιστήμονες

22 οὐαὶ οἱ ἰσχύοντες ὑμῶν οἱ τὸν οἶνον πίνοντες καὶ οἱ δυνάσται οἱ κεραννύντες τὸ σικερα

23 οἱ δικαιοῦντες τὸν ἀσεβῆ ἕνεκεν δώρων καὶ τὸ δίκαιον τοῦ δικαίου αἴροντες

24 διὰ τοῦτο ὃν τρόπον καυθήσεται καλάμη ὑπὸ ἄνθρακος πυρὸς καὶ συγκαυθήσεται ὑπὸ φλογὸς ἀνειμένης ἡ ῥίζα αὐτῶν ὡς χνοῦς ἔσται καὶ τὸ ἄνθος αὐτῶν ὡς κονιορτὸς ἀναβήσεται οὐ γὰρ ἠθέλησαν τὸν νόμον κυρίου σαβαωθ ἀλλὰ τὸ λόγιον τοῦ ἁγίου Ισραηλ παρώξυναν

25 καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ κύριος σαβαωθ ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέβαλεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτούς καὶ παρωξύνθη τὰ ὄρη καὶ ἐγενήθη τὰ θνησιμαῖα αὐτῶν ὡς κοπρία ἐν μέσῳ ὁδοῦ καὶ ἐν πᾶσι τούτοις οὐκ ἀπεστράφη ὁ θυμός ἀλλ᾽ ἔτι ἡ χεὶρ ὑψηλή

26 τοιγαροῦν ἀρεῖ σύσσημον ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν τοῖς μακρὰν καὶ συριεῖ αὐτοῖς ἀπ᾽ ἄκρου τῆς γῆς καὶ ἰδοὺ ταχὺ κούφως ἔρχονται

27 οὐ πεινάσουσιν οὐδὲ κοπιάσουσιν οὐδὲ νυστάξουσιν οὐδὲ κοιμηθήσονται οὐδὲ λύσουσιν τὰς ζώνας αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ὀσφύος αὐτῶν οὐδὲ μὴ ῥαγῶσιν οἱ ἱμάντες τῶν ὑποδημάτων αὐτῶν

28 ὧν τὰ βέλη ὀξεῖά ἐστιν καὶ τὰ τόξα αὐτῶν ἐντεταμένα οἱ πόδες τῶν ἵππων αὐτῶν ὡς στερεὰ πέτρα ἐλογίσθησαν οἱ τροχοὶ τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτῶν ὡς καταιγίς

29 ὁρμῶσιν ὡς λέοντες καὶ παρέστηκαν ὡς σκύμνος λέοντος καὶ ἐπιλήμψεται καὶ βοήσει ὡς θηρίου καὶ ἐκβαλεῖ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ῥυόμενος αὐτούς

30 καὶ βοήσει δι᾽ αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὡς φωνὴ θαλάσσης κυμαινούσης καὶ ἐμβλέψονται εἰς τὴν γῆν καὶ ἰδοὺ σκότος σκληρὸν ἐν τῇ ἀπορίᾳ αὐτῶν

1 [Cantabo dilecto meo
canticum patruelis mei vineæ suæ.
Vinea facta est dilecto meo
in cornu filio olei.

2 Et sepivit eam, et lapides elegit ex illa,
et plantavit eam electam;
et ædificavit turrim in medio ejus,
et torcular exstruxit in ea;
et exspectavit ut faceret uvas,
et fecit labruscas.

3 Nunc ergo, habitatores Jerusalem
et viri Juda,
judicate inter me
et vineam meam.

4 Quid est quod debui ultra facere vineæ meæ,
et non feci ei?
an quod exspectavi ut faceret uvas,
et fecit labruscas?

5 Et nunc ostendam vobis
quid ego faciam vineæ meæ:
auferam sepem ejus,
et erit in direptionem;
diruam maceriam ejus,
et erit in conculcationem.

6 Et ponam eam desertam;
non putabitur et non fodietur:
et ascendent vepres et spinæ,
et nubibus mandabo
ne pluant super eam imbrem.

7 Vinea enim Domini exercituum
domus Israël est;
et vir Juda
germen ejus delectabile:
et exspectavi ut faceret judicium,
et ecce iniquitas;
et justitiam, et ecce clamor.]

8 [Væ qui conjungitis domum ad domum,
et agrum agro copulatis
usque ad terminum loci!
Numquid habitabitis vos soli
in medio terræ?

9 In auribus meis sunt hæc,
dicit Dominus exercituum;
nisi domus multæ desertæ fuerint,
grandes et pulchræ, absque habitatore.

10 Decem enim jugera vinearum facient lagunculam unam,
et triginta modii sementis facient modios tres.

11 Væ qui consurgitis mane
ad ebrietatem sectandam,
et potandum usque ad vesperam,
ut vino æstuetis!

12 Cithara, et lyra, et tympanum,
et tibia, et vinum in conviviis vestris;
et opus Domini non respicitis,
nec opera manuum ejus consideratis.

13 Propterea captivus ductus est populus meus,
quia non habuit scientiam,
et nobiles ejus interierunt fame,
et multitudo ejus siti exaruit.

14 Propterea dilatavit infernus animam suam,
et aperuit os suum absque ullo termino;
et descendent fortes ejus,
et populus ejus, et sublimes gloriosique ejus, ad eum.

15 Et incurvabitur homo, et humiliabitur vir,
et oculi sublimium deprimentur.

16 Et exaltabitur Dominus exercituum in judicio;
et Deus sanctus sanctificabitur in justitia.

17 Et pascentur agni juxta ordinem suum,
et deserta in ubertatem versa advenæ comedent.]

18 [Væ qui trahitis iniquitatem
in funiculis vanitatis,
et quasi vinculum plaustri peccatum!

19 qui dicitis: Festinet,
et cito veniat opus ejus, ut videamus;
et appropiet, et veniat
consilium sancti Israël,
et sciemus illud!

20 Væ qui dicitis malum bonum,
et bonum malum;
ponentes tenebras lucem,
et lucem tenebras;
ponentes amarum in dulce,
et dulce in amarum!

21 Væ qui sapientes estis in oculis vestris,
et coram vobismetipsis prudentes.

22 Væ qui potentes estis ad bibendum vinum,
et viri fortes ad miscendam ebrietatem!

23 qui justificatis impium pro muneribus,
et justitiam justi aufertis ab eo!

24 Propter hoc, sicut devorat stipulam lingua ignis,
et calor flammæ exurit,
sic radix eorum quasi favilla erit,
et germen eorum ut pulvis ascendet;
abjecerunt enim legem Domini exercituum,
et eloquium sancti Israël blasphemaverunt.

25 Ideo iratus est furor Domini in populum suum,
et extendit manum suam super eum, et percussit eum:
et conturbati sunt montes,
et facta sunt morticina eorum quasi stercus in medio platearum.
In his omnibus non est adversus furor ejus,
sed adhuc manus ejus extenta.

26 Et elevabit signum in nationibus procul,
et sibilabit ad eum de finibus terræ:
et ecce festinus velociter veniet.

27 Non est deficiens neque laborans in eo;
non dormitabit, neque dormiet;
neque solvetur cingulum renum ejus,
nec rumpetur corrigia calceamenti ejus.

28 Sagittæ ejus acutæ, et omnes arcus ejus extenti.
Ungulæ equorum ejus ut silex,
et rotæ ejus quasi impetus tempestatis.

29 Rugitus ejus ut leonis;
rugiet ut catuli leonum:
et frendet, et tenebit prædam,
et amplexabitur, et non erit qui eruat.

30 Et sonabit super eum in die illa sicut sonitus maris:
aspiciemus in terram,
et ecce tenebræ tribulationis,
et lux obtenebrata est in caligine ejus.]
