Isaiah 51


1  Hearken8085 to413 me, ye that follow after7291 righteousness,6664 ye that seek1245 the LORD:3068 look5027 unto413 the rock6697 whence ye are hewn,2672 and to413 the hole4718 of the pit953 whence ye are digged.5365

2  Look5027 unto413 Abraham85 your father,1 and unto413 Sarah8283 that bore2342 you: for3588 I called7121 him alone,259 and blessed1288 him, and increased7235 him.

3  For3588 the LORD3068 shall comfort5162 Zion:6726 he will comfort5162 all3605 her waste places;2723 and he will make7760 her wilderness4057 like Eden,5731 and her desert6160 like the garden1588 of the LORD;3068 joy8342 and gladness8057 shall be found4672 therein, thanksgiving,8426 and the voice6963 of melody.2172

4  Hearken7181 unto413 me, my people;5971 and give ear238 unto413 me, O my nation:3816 for3588 a law8451 shall proceed3318 from4480 854 me, and I will make my judgment4941 to rest7280 for a light216 of the people.5971

5  My righteousness6664 is near;7138 my salvation3468 is gone forth,3318 and mine arms2220 shall judge8199 the people;5971 the isles339 shall wait6960 upon413 me, and on413 mine arm2220 shall they trust.3176

6  Lift up5375 your eyes5869 to the heavens,8064 and look5027 upon413 the earth776 beneath:4480 8478 for3588 the heavens8064 shall vanish away4414 like smoke,6227 and the earth776 shall wax old1086 like a garment,899 and they that dwell3427 therein shall die4191 in like manner:3644 3651 but my salvation3444 shall be1961 forever,5769 and my righteousness6666 shall not3808 be abolished.2865

7  Hearken8085 unto413 me, ye that know3045 righteousness,6664 the people5971 in whose heart3820 is my law;8451 fear3372 ye not408 the reproach2781 of men,582 neither408 be ye afraid2865 of their revilings.4480 1421

8  For3588 the moth6211 shall eat them up398 like a garment,899 and the worm5580 shall eat398 them like wool:6785 but my righteousness6666 shall be1961 forever,5769 and my salvation3444 from generation1755 to generation.1755

9  Awake,5782 awake,5782 put on3847 strength,5797 O arm2220 of the LORD;3068 awake,5782 as in the ancient6924 days,3117 in the generations1755 of old.5769 Art thou859 not3808 it1931 that hath cut2672 Rahab,7293 and wounded2490 the dragon?8577

10  Art thou859 not3808 it1931 which hath dried2717 the sea,3220 the waters4325 of the great7227 deep;8415 that hath made7760 the depths4615 of the sea3220 a way1870 for the ransomed1350 to pass over?5674

11  Therefore the redeemed6299 of the LORD3068 shall return,7725 and come935 with singing7440 unto Zion;6726 and everlasting5769 joy8057 shall be upon5921 their head:7218 they shall obtain5381 gladness8342 and joy;8057 and sorrow3015 and mourning585 shall flee away.5127

12  I,595 even I,595 am he1931 that comforteth5162 you: who4310 art thou,859 that thou shouldest be afraid3372 of a man4480 582 that shall die,4191 and of the son4480 1121 of man120 which shall be made5414 as grass;2682

13  And forgettest7911 the LORD3068 thy maker,6213 that hath stretched forth5186 the heavens,8064 and laid the foundations3245 of the earth;776 and hast feared6342 continually8548 every3605 day3117 because4480 6440 of the fury2534 of the oppressor,6693 as834 if he were ready3559 to destroy?7843 and where346 is the fury2534 of the oppressor?6693

14  The captive exile6808 hasteneth4116 that he may be loosed,6605 and that he should not3808 die4191 in the pit,7845 nor3808 that his bread3899 should fail.2637

15  But I595 am the LORD3068 thy God,430 that divided7280 the sea,3220 whose waves1530 roared:1993 The LORD3068 of hosts6635 is his name.8034

16  And I have put7760 my words1697 in thy mouth,6310 and I have covered3680 thee in the shadow6738 of mine hand,3027 that I may plant5193 the heavens,8064 and lay the foundations3245 of the earth,776 and say559 unto Zion,6726 Thou859 art my people.5971

17  Awake,5782 awake,5782 stand up,6965 O Jerusalem,3389 which834 hast drunk8354 at the hand4480 3027 of the LORD3068 853 the cup3563 of his fury;2534 thou hast drunken8354 853 the dregs6907 of the cup3563 of trembling,8653 and wrung them out.4680

18  There is none369 to guide5095 her among all4480 3605 the sons1121 whom she hath brought forth;3205 neither369 is there any that taketh2388 her by the hand3027 of all4480 3605 the sons1121 that she hath brought up.1431

19  These2007 two8147 things are come7122 unto thee; who4310 shall be sorry5110 for thee? desolation,7701 and destruction,7667 and the famine,7458 and the sword:2719 by whom4310 shall I comfort5162 thee?

20  Thy sons1121 have fainted,5968 they lie7901 at the head7218 of all3605 the streets,2351 as a wild bull8377 in a net:4364 they are full4392 of the fury2534 of the LORD,3068 the rebuke1606 of thy God.430

21  Therefore3651 hear8085 now4994 this,2063 thou afflicted,6041 and drunken,7937 but not3808 with wine:4480 3196

22  Thus3541 saith559 thy Lord113 the LORD,3068 and thy God430 that pleadeth the cause7378 of his people,5971 Behold,2009 I have taken3947 out of thine hand4480 3027 853 the cup3563 of trembling,8653 even 853 the dregs6907 of the cup3563 of my fury;2534 thou shalt no3808 more3254 drink8354 it again:5750

23  But I will put7760 it into the hand3027 of them that afflict3013 thee; which834 have said559 to thy soul,5315 Bow down,7812 that we may go over:5674 and thou hast laid7760 thy body1460 as the ground,776 and as the street,2351 to them that went over.5674


1 ἀκούσατέ μου οἱ διώκοντες τὸ δίκαιον καὶ ζητοῦντες τὸν κύριον ἐμβλέψατε εἰς τὴν στερεὰν πέτραν ἣν ἐλατομήσατε καὶ εἰς τὸν βόθυνον τοῦ λάκκου ὃν ὠρύξατε

2 ἐμβλέψατε εἰς Αβρααμ τὸν πατέρα ὑμῶν καὶ εἰς Σαρραν τὴν ὠδίνουσαν ὑμᾶς ὅτι εἷς ἦν καὶ ἐκάλεσα αὐτὸν καὶ εὐλόγησα αὐτὸν καὶ ἠγάπησα αὐτὸν καὶ ἐπλήθυνα αὐτόν

3 καὶ σὲ νῦν παρακαλέσω Σιων καὶ παρεκάλεσα πάντα τὰ ἔρημα αὐτῆς καὶ θήσω τὰ ἔρημα αὐτῆς ὡς παράδεισον κυρίου εὐφροσύνην καὶ ἀγαλλίαμα εὑρήσουσιν ἐν αὐτῇ ἐξομολόγησιν καὶ φωνὴν αἰνέσεως

4 ἀκούσατέ μου ἀκούσατε λαός μου καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς πρός με ἐνωτίσασθε ὅτι νόμος παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐξελεύσεται καὶ ἡ κρίσις μου εἰς φῶς ἐθνῶν

5 ἐγγίζει ταχὺ ἡ δικαιοσύνη μου καὶ ἐξελεύσεται ὡς φῶς τὸ σωτήριόν μου καὶ εἰς τὸν βραχίονά μου ἔθνη ἐλπιοῦσιν ἐμὲ νῆσοι ὑπομενοῦσιν καὶ εἰς τὸν βραχίονά μου ἐλπιοῦσιν

6 ἄρατε εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ ἐμβλέψατε εἰς τὴν γῆν κάτω ὅτι ὁ οὐρανὸς ὡς καπνὸς ἐστερεώθη ἡ δὲ γῆ ὡς ἱμάτιον παλαιωθήσεται οἱ δὲ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν ὥσπερ ταῦτα ἀποθανοῦνται τὸ δὲ σωτήριόν μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἔσται ἡ δὲ δικαιοσύνη μου οὐ μὴ ἐκλίπῃ

7 ἀκούσατέ μου οἱ εἰδότες κρίσιν λαός μου οὗ ὁ νόμος μου ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ ὑμῶν μὴ φοβεῖσθε ὀνειδισμὸν ἀνθρώπων καὶ τῷ φαυλισμῷ αὐτῶν μὴ ἡττᾶσθε

8 ὥσπερ γὰρ ἱμάτιον βρωθήσεται ὑπὸ χρόνου καὶ ὡς ἔρια βρωθήσεται ὑπὸ σητός ἡ δὲ δικαιοσύνη μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἔσται τὸ δὲ σωτήριόν μου εἰς γενεὰς γενεῶν

9 ἐξεγείρου ἐξεγείρου Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἔνδυσαι τὴν ἰσχὺν τοῦ βραχίονός σου ἐξεγείρου ὡς ἐν ἀρχῇ ἡμέρας ὡς γενεὰ αἰῶνος οὐ σὺ εἶ

10 ἡ ἐρημοῦσα θάλασσαν ὕδωρ ἀβύσσου πλῆθος ἡ θεῖσα τὰ βάθη τῆς θαλάσσης ὁδὸν διαβάσεως ῥυομένοις

11 καὶ λελυτρωμένοις ὑπὸ γὰρ κυρίου ἀποστραφήσονται καὶ ἥξουσιν εἰς Σιων μετ᾽ εὐφροσύνης καὶ ἀγαλλιάματος αἰωνίου ἐπὶ γὰρ τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτῶν ἀγαλλίασις καὶ αἴνεσις καὶ εὐφροσύνη καταλήμψεται αὐτούς ἀπέδρα ὀδύνη καὶ λύπη καὶ στεναγμός

12 ἐγώ εἰμι ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ παρακαλῶν σε γνῶθι τίνα εὐλαβηθεῖσα ἐφοβήθης ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου θνητοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ υἱοῦ ἀνθρώπου οἳ ὡσεὶ χόρτος ἐξηράνθησαν

13 καὶ ἐπελάθου θεὸν τὸν ποιήσαντά σε τὸν ποιήσαντα τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ θεμελιώσαντα τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐφόβου ἀεὶ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ θυμοῦ τοῦ θλίβοντός σε ὃν τρόπον γὰρ ἐβουλεύσατο τοῦ ἆραί σε καὶ νῦν ποῦ ὁ θυμὸς τοῦ θλίβοντός σε

14 ἐν γὰρ τῷ σῴζεσθαί σε οὐ στήσεται οὐδὲ χρονιεῖ

15 ὅτι ἐγὼ ὁ θεός σου ὁ ταράσσων τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ἠχῶν τὰ κύματα αὐτῆς κύριος σαβαωθ ὄνομά μοι

16 θήσω τοὺς λόγους μου εἰς τὸ στόμα σου καὶ ὑπὸ τὴν σκιὰν τῆς χειρός μου σκεπάσω σε ἐν ᾗ ἔστησα τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἐθεμελίωσα τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐρεῖ Σιων λαός μου εἶ σύ

17 ἐξεγείρου ἐξεγείρου ἀνάστηθι Ιερουσαλημ ἡ πιοῦσα τὸ ποτήριον τοῦ θυμοῦ ἐκ χειρὸς κυρίου τὸ ποτήριον γὰρ τῆς πτώσεως τὸ κόνδυ τοῦ θυμοῦ ἐξέπιες καὶ ἐξεκένωσας

18 καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ παρακαλῶν σε ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν τέκνων σου ὧν ἔτεκες καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀντιλαμβανόμενος τῆς χειρός σου οὐδὲ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν υἱῶν σου ὧν ὕψωσας

19 δύο ταῦτα ἀντικείμενά σοι τίς σοι συλλυπηθήσεται πτῶμα καὶ σύντριμμα λιμὸς καὶ μάχαιρα τίς σε παρακαλέσει

20 οἱ υἱοί σου οἱ ἀπορούμενοι οἱ καθεύδοντες ἐπ᾽ ἄκρου πάσης ἐξόδου ὡς σευτλίον ἡμίεφθον οἱ πλήρεις θυμοῦ κυρίου ἐκλελυμένοι διὰ κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ

21 διὰ τοῦτο ἄκουε τεταπεινωμένη καὶ μεθύουσα οὐκ ἀπὸ οἴνου

22 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὁ κρίνων τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ εἴληφα ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου τὸ ποτήριον τῆς πτώσεως τὸ κόνδυ τοῦ θυμοῦ καὶ οὐ προσθήσῃ ἔτι πιεῖν αὐτό

23 καὶ ἐμβαλῶ αὐτὸ εἰς τὰς χεῖρας τῶν ἀδικησάντων σε καὶ τῶν ταπεινωσάντων σε οἳ εἶπαν τῇ ψυχῇ σου κύψον ἵνα παρέλθωμεν καὶ ἔθηκας ἴσα τῇ γῇ τὰ μετάφρενά σου ἔξω τοῖς παραπορευομένοις

1 [Audite me, qui sequimini quod justum est,
et quæritis Dominum;
attendite ad petram unde excisi estis,
et ad cavernam laci de qua præcisi estis.

2 Attendite ad Abraham, patrem vestrum,
et ad Saram, quæ peperit vos:
quia unum vocavi eum,
et benedixi ei, et multiplicavi eum.

3 Consolabitur ergo Dominus Sion,
et consolabitur omnes ruinas ejus:
et ponet desertum ejus quasi delicias,
et solitudinem ejus quasi hortum Domini.
Gaudium et lætitia invenietur in ea,
gratiarum actio et vox laudis.

4 Attendite ad me, popule meus,
et tribus mea, me audite:
quia lex a me exiet,
et judicium meum in lucem populorum requiescet.

5 Prope est justus meus, egressus est salvator meus,
et brachia mea populos judicabunt;
me insulæ exspectabunt,
et brachium meum sustinebunt.

6 Levate in cælum oculos vestros,
et videte sub terra deorsum:
quia cæli sicut fumus liquescent,
et terra sicut vestimentum atteretur,
et habitatores ejus sicut hæc interibunt:
salus autem mea in sempiternum erit,
et justitia mea non deficiet.

7 Audite me, qui scitis justum,
populus meus, lex mea in corde eorum:
nolite timere opprobrium hominum,
et blasphemias eorum ne metuatis:

8 sicut enim vestimentum, sic comedet eos vermis,
et sicut lanam, sic devorabit eos tinea:
salus autem mea in sempiternum erit,
et justitia mea in generationes generationum.

9 Consurge, consurge, induere fortitudinem,
brachium Domini!
consurge sicut in diebus antiquis,
in generationibus sæculorum.
Numquid non tu percussisti superbum,
vulnerasti draconem?

10 numquid non tu siccasti mare,
aquam abyssi vehementis;
qui posuisti profundum maris viam,
ut transirent liberati?

11 Et nunc qui redempti sunt a Domino, revertentur,
et venient in Sion laudantes,
et lætitia sempiterna super capita eorum:
gaudium et lætitiam tenebunt;
fugiet dolor et gemitus.

12 Ego, ego ipse consolabor vos.
Quis tu, ut timeres ab homine mortali,
et a filio hominis qui quasi fœnum ita arescet?

13 Et oblitus es Domini, factoris tui,
qui tetendit cælos et fundavit terram;
et formidasti jugiter tota die
a facie furoris ejus qui te tribulabat,
et paraverat ad perdendum.
Ubi nunc est furor tribulantis?

14 Cito veniet gradiens ad aperiendum;
et non interficiet usque ad internecionem,
nec deficiet panis ejus.

15 Ego autem sum Dominus Deus tuus,
qui conturbo mare, et intumescunt fluctus ejus:
Dominus exercituum nomen meum.

16 Posui verba mea in ore tuo,
et in umbra manus meæ protexi te,
ut plantes cælos, et fundes terram,
et dicas ad Sion: Populus meus es tu.]

17 [Elevare, elevare,
consurge, Jerusalem,
quæ bibisti de manu Domini
calicem iræ ejus;
usque ad fundum calicis soporis bibisti,
et potasti usque ad fæces.

18 Non est qui sustentet eam,
ex omnibus filiis quos genuit;
et non est qui apprehendat manum ejus,
ex omnibus filiis quos enutrivit.

19 Duo sunt quæ occurrerunt tibi;
quis contristabitur super te?
Vastitas, et contritio, et fames, et gladius;
quis consolabitur te?

20 Filii tui projecti sunt, dormierunt
in capite omnium viarum
sicut oryx illaqueatus,
pleni indignatione Domini,
increpatione Dei tui.

21 Idcirco audi hoc, paupercula,
et ebria non a vino.

22 Hæc dicit dominator tuus Dominus,
et Deus tuus, qui pugnabit pro populo suo:
Ecce tuli de manu tua
calicem soporis,
fundum calicis indignationis meæ:
non adjicies ut bibas illum ultra.

23 Et ponam illum in manu eorum qui te humiliaverunt,
et dixerunt animæ tuæ:
Incurvare, ut transeamus;
et posuisti ut terram corpus tuum,
et quasi viam transeuntibus.]
