Ezekiel 21


1  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

2  Son1121 of man,120 set7760 thy face6440 toward413 Jerusalem,3389 and drop5197 thy word toward413 the holy places,4720 and prophesy5012 against413 the land127 of Israel,3478

3  And say559 to the land127 of Israel,3478 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 I am against413 thee, and will draw forth3318 my sword2719 out of his sheath,4480 8593 and will cut off3772 from4480 thee the righteous6662 and the wicked.7563

4  Seeing then3282 that834 I will cut off3772 from4480 thee the righteous6662 and the wicked,7563 therefore3651 shall my sword2719 go forth3318 out of his sheath4480 8593 against413 all3605 flesh1320 from the south4480 5045 to the north:6828

5  That all3605 flesh1320 may know3045 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 have drawn forth3318 my sword2719 out of his sheath:4480 8593 it shall not3808 return7725 any more.5750

6  Sigh584 therefore, thou859 son1121 of man,120 with the breaking7670 of thy loins;4975 and with bitterness4814 sigh584 before their eyes.5869

7  And it shall be,1961 when3588 they say559 unto413 thee, Wherefore5921 4100 sighest584 thou?859 that thou shalt answer,559 For413 the tidings;8052 because3588 it cometh:935 and every3605 heart3820 shall melt,4549 and all3605 hands3027 shall be feeble,7503 and every3605 spirit7307 shall faint,3543 and all3605 knees1290 shall be weak1980 as water:4325 behold,2009 it cometh,935 and shall be brought to pass,1961 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

8  Again the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

9  Son1121 of man,120 prophesy,5012 and say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;136 Say,559 A sword,2719 a sword2719 is sharpened,2300 and also1571 furbished:4803

10  It is sharpened2300 to4616 make a sore slaughter;2873 2874 it is furbished4803 that4616 it may glitter:1961 1300 should we then176 make mirth?7797 it contemneth3988 the rod7626 of my son,1121 as every3605 tree.6086

11  And he hath given5414 it to be furbished,4803 that it may be handled:8610 3709 this1931 sword2719 is sharpened,2300 and it1931 is furbished,4803 to give5414 it into the hand3027 of the slayer.2026

12  Cry2199 and howl,3213 son1121 of man:120 for3588 it1931 shall be1961 upon my people,5971 it1931 shall be upon all3605 the princes5387 of Israel:3478 terrors4048 by reason of413 the sword2719 shall be1961 upon854 my people:5971 smite5606 therefore3651 upon413 thy thigh.3409

13  Because3588 it is a trial,974 and what4100 if518 the sword contemn3988 even1571 the rod?7626 it shall be1961 no3808 more, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

14  Thou859 therefore, son1121 of man,120 prophesy,5012 and smite thine hands together,5221 3709 413 3709 and let the sword2719 be doubled3717 the third time,7992 the sword2719 of the slain:2491 it1931 is the sword2719 of the great1419 men that are slain,2491 which entereth into their privy chambers.2314

15  I have set5414 the point19 of the sword2719 against5921 all3605 their gates,8179 that4616 their heart3820 may faint,4127 and their ruins4383 be multiplied:7235 ah!253 it is made bright,6213 1300 it is wrapped up4593 for the slaughter.2874

16  Go thee one way or other,258 either on the right hand,3231 or on the left,8041 whithersoever575 thy face6440 is set.3259

17  I589 will also1571 smite5221 mine hands together,3709 413 3709 and I will cause my fury2534 to rest:5117 I589 the LORD3068 have said1696 it.

18  The word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me again, saying,559

19  Also, thou859 son1121 of man,120 appoint7760 thee two8147 ways,1870 that the sword2719 of the king4428 of Babylon894 may come:935 both twain8147 shall come forth3318 out of one land:4480 776 259 and choose1254 thou a place,3027 choose1254 it at the head7218 of the way1870 to the city.5892

20  Appoint7760 a way,1870 that the sword2719 may come935 to854 Rabbath7237 of the Ammonites,1121 5983 and to854 Judah3063 in Jerusalem3389 the defensed.1219

21  For3588 the king4428 of Babylon894 stood5975 at413 the parting517 of the way,1870 at the head7218 of the two8147 ways,1870 to use7080 divination:7081 he made his arrows bright,7043 2671 he consulted7592 with images,8655 he looked7200 in the liver.3516

22  At his right hand3225 was1961 the divination7081 for Jerusalem,3389 to appoint7760 captains,3733 to open6605 the mouth6310 in the slaughter,7524 to lift up7311 the voice6963 with shouting,8643 to appoint7760 battering rams3733 against5921 the gates,8179 to cast8210 a mount,5550 and to build1129 a fort.1785

23  And it shall be1961 unto them as a false7723 divination7080 in their sight,5869 to them that have sworn7650 oaths:7621 but he1931 will call to remembrance2142 the iniquity,5771 that they may be taken.8610

24  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Because3282 ye have made your iniquity5771 to be remembered,2142 in that your transgressions6588 are discovered,1540 so that in all3605 your doings5949 your sins2403 do appear;7200 because,3282 I say, that ye are come to remembrance,2142 ye shall be taken8610 with the hand.3709

25  And thou,859 profane2491 wicked7563 prince5387 of Israel,3478 whose834 day3117 is come,935 when6256 iniquity5771 shall have an end,7093

26  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Remove5493 the diadem,4701 and take off7311 the crown:5850 this2063 shall not3808 be the same:2063 exalt1361 him that is low,8217 and abase8213 him that is high.1364

27  I will7760 overturn,5754 overturn,5754 overturn,5754 it: and1571 it2063 shall be1961 no3808 more, until5704 he come935 whose834 right4941 it is; and I will give5414 it him.

28  And thou,859 son1121 of man,120 prophesy5012 and say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD3069 concerning413 the Ammonites,1121 5983 and concerning413 their reproach;2781 even say559 thou, The sword,2719 the sword2719 is drawn:6605 for the slaughter2874 it is furbished,4803 to consume3557 because of4616 the glittering:1300

29  While they see2372 vanity7723 unto thee, while they divine7080 a lie3577 unto thee, to bring5414 thee upon413 the necks6677 of them that are slain,2491 of the wicked,7563 whose834 day3119 is come,935 when6256 their iniquity5771 shall have an end.7093

30  Shall I cause it to return7725 into413 his sheath?8593 I will judge8199 thee in the place4725 where834 thou wast created,1254 in the land776 of thy nativity.4351

31  And I will pour out8210 mine indignation2195 upon5921 thee, I will blow6315 against5921 thee in the fire784 of my wrath,5678 and deliver5414 thee into the hand3027 of brutish1197 men,376 and skillful2796 to destroy.4889

32  Thou shalt be1961 for fuel402 to the fire;784 thy blood1818 shall be1961 in the midst8432 of the land;776 thou shalt be no3808 more remembered:2142 for3588 I589 the LORD3068 have spoken1696 it.


1 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

2 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου στήρισον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἐπὶ Θαιμαν καὶ ἐπίβλεψον ἐπὶ Δαρωμ καὶ προφήτευσον ἐπὶ δρυμὸν ἡγούμενον Ναγεβ

3 καὶ ἐρεῖς τῷ δρυμῷ Ναγεβ ἄκουε λόγον κυρίου τάδε λέγει κύριος κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἀνάπτω ἐν σοὶ πῦρ καὶ καταφάγεται ἐν σοὶ πᾶν ξύλον χλωρὸν καὶ πᾶν ξύλον ξηρόν οὐ σβεσθήσεται ἡ φλὸξ ἡ ἐξαφθεῖσα καὶ κατακαυθήσεται ἐν αὐτῇ πᾶν πρόσωπον ἀπὸ ἀπηλιώτου ἕως βορρᾶ

4 καὶ ἐπιγνώσονται πᾶσα σὰρξ ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ἐξέκαυσα αὐτό καὶ οὐ σβεσθήσεται

5 καὶ εἶπα μηδαμῶς κύριε κύριε αὐτοὶ λέγουσιν πρός με οὐχὶ παραβολή ἐστιν λεγομένη αὕτη

6 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

7 διὰ τοῦτο προφήτευσον υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου καὶ στήρισον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐπίβλεψον ἐπὶ τὰ ἅγια αὐτῶν καὶ προφητεύσεις ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν τοῦ Ισραηλ

8 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὴν γῆν τοῦ Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ πρὸς σὲ καὶ ἐκσπάσω τὸ ἐγχειρίδιόν μου ἐκ τοῦ κολεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξολεθρεύσω ἐκ σοῦ ἄδικον καὶ ἄνομον

9 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐξολεθρεύσω ἐκ σοῦ ἄδικον καὶ ἄνομον οὕτως ἐξελεύσεται τὸ ἐγχειρίδιόν μου ἐκ τοῦ κολεοῦ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν σάρκα ἀπὸ ἀπηλιώτου ἕως βορρᾶ

10 καὶ ἐπιγνώσεται πᾶσα σὰρξ διότι ἐγὼ κύριος ἐξέσπασα τὸ ἐγχειρίδιόν μου ἐκ τοῦ κολεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἀποστρέψει οὐκέτι

11 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου καταστέναξον ἐν συντριβῇ ὀσφύος σου καὶ ἐν ὀδύναις στενάξεις κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῶν

12 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν εἴπωσιν πρὸς σέ ἕνεκα τίνος σὺ στενάζεις καὶ ἐρεῖς ἐπὶ τῇ ἀγγελίᾳ διότι ἔρχεται καὶ θραυσθήσεται πᾶσα καρδία καὶ πᾶσαι χεῖρες παραλυθήσονται καὶ ἐκψύξει πᾶσα σὰρξ καὶ πᾶν πνεῦμα καὶ πάντες μηροὶ μολυνθήσονται ὑγρασίᾳ ἰδοὺ ἔρχεται καὶ ἔσται λέγει κύριος κύριος

13 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

14 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου προφήτευσον καὶ ἐρεῖς τάδε λέγει κύριος εἰπόν ῥομφαία ῥομφαία ὀξύνου καὶ θυμώθητι

15 ὅπως σφάξῃς σφάγια ὀξύνου ὅπως γένῃ εἰς στίλβωσιν ἑτοίμη εἰς παράλυσιν σφάζε ἐξουδένει ἀπωθοῦ πᾶν ξύλον

16 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὴν ἑτοίμην τοῦ κρατεῖν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐξηκονήθη ῥομφαία ἔστιν ἑτοίμη τοῦ δοῦναι αὐτὴν εἰς χεῖρα ἀποκεντοῦντος

17 ἀνάκραγε καὶ ὀλόλυξον υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου ὅτι αὐτὴ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ λαῷ μου αὐτὴ ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἀφηγουμένοις τοῦ Ισραηλ παροικήσουσιν ἐπὶ ῥομφαίᾳ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ λαῷ μου διὰ τοῦτο κρότησον ἐπὶ τὴν χεῖρά σου

18 ὅτι δεδικαίωται καὶ τί εἰ καὶ φυλὴ ἀπώσθη οὐκ ἔσται λέγει κύριος κύριος

19 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου προφήτευσον καὶ κρότησον χεῖρα ἐπὶ χεῖρα καὶ διπλασίασον ῥομφαίαν ἡ τρίτη ῥομφαία τραυματιῶν ἐστιν ῥομφαία τραυματιῶν ἡ μεγάλη καὶ ἐκστήσει αὐτούς

20 ὅπως θραυσθῇ ἡ καρδία καὶ πληθυνθῶσιν οἱ ἀσθενοῦντες ἐπὶ πᾶσαν πύλην αὐτῶν παραδέδονται εἰς σφάγια ῥομφαίας εὖ γέγονεν εἰς σφαγήν εὖ γέγονεν εἰς στίλβωσιν

21 διαπορεύου ὀξύνου ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων οὗ ἂν τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἐξεγείρηται

22 καὶ ἐγὼ δὲ κροτήσω χεῖρά μου πρὸς χεῖρά μου καὶ ἐναφήσω τὸν θυμόν μου ἐγὼ κύριος λελάληκα

23 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

24 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου διάταξον σεαυτῷ δύο ὁδοὺς τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν ῥομφαίαν βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἐκ χώρας μιᾶς ἐξελεύσονται αἱ δύο καὶ χεὶρ ἐν ἀρχῇ ὁδοῦ πόλεως ἐπ᾽ ἀρχῆς

25 ὁδοῦ διατάξεις τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν ῥομφαίαν ἐπὶ Ραββαθ υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν Ιουδαίαν καὶ ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς

26 διότι στήσεται βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐπὶ τὴν ἀρχαίαν ὁδὸν ἐπ᾽ ἀρχῆς τῶν δύο ὁδῶν τοῦ μαντεύσασθαι μαντείαν τοῦ ἀναβράσαι ῥάβδον καὶ ἐπερωτῆσαι ἐν τοῖς γλυπτοῖς καὶ ἡπατοσκοπήσασθαι ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ

27 ἐγένετο τὸ μαντεῖον ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ τοῦ βαλεῖν χάρακα τοῦ διανοῖξαι στόμα ἐν βοῇ ὑψῶσαι φωνὴν μετὰ κραυγῆς τοῦ βαλεῖν χάρακα ἐπὶ τὰς πύλας αὐτῆς καὶ βαλεῖν χῶμα καὶ οἰκοδομῆσαι βελοστάσεις

28 καὶ αὐτὸς αὐτοῖς ὡς μαντευόμενος μαντείαν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν καὶ αὐτὸς ἀναμιμνῄσκων ἀδικίας αὐτοῦ μνησθῆναι

29 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἀνεμνήσατε τὰς ἀδικίας ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ ἀποκαλυφθῆναι τὰς ἀσεβείας ὑμῶν τοῦ ὁραθῆναι ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ἀσεβείαις ὑμῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐπιτηδεύμασιν ὑμῶν ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἀνεμνήσατε ἐν τούτοις ἁλώσεσθε

30 καὶ σύ βέβηλε ἄνομε ἀφηγούμενε τοῦ Ισραηλ οὗ ἥκει ἡ ἡμέρα ἐν καιρῷ ἀδικίας πέρας

31 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἀφείλου τὴν κίδαριν καὶ ἐπέθου τὸν στέφανον αὕτη οὐ τοιαύτη ἔσται ἐταπείνωσας τὸ ὑψηλὸν καὶ τὸ ταπεινὸν ὕψωσας

32 ἀδικίαν ἀδικίαν θήσομαι αὐτήν οὐδ᾽ αὕτη τοιαύτη ἔσται ἕως οὗ ἔλθῃ ᾧ καθήκει καὶ παραδώσω αὐτῷ

33 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου προφήτευσον καὶ ἐρεῖς τάδε λέγει κύριος πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων καὶ πρὸς τὸν ὀνειδισμὸν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐρεῖς ῥομφαία ῥομφαία ἐσπασμένη εἰς σφάγια καὶ ἐσπασμένη εἰς συντέλειαν ἐγείρου ὅπως στίλβῃς

34 ἐν τῇ ὁράσει σου τῇ ματαίᾳ καὶ ἐν τῷ μαντεύεσθαί σε ψευδῆ τοῦ παραδοῦναί σε ἐπὶ τραχήλους τραυματιῶν ἀνόμων ὧν ἥκει ἡ ἡμέρα ἐν καιρῷ ἀδικίας πέρας

35 ἀπόστρεφε μὴ καταλύσῃς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ᾧ γεγέννησαι ἐν τῇ γῇ τῇ ἰδίᾳ σου κρινῶ σε

36 καὶ ἐκχεῶ ἐπὶ σὲ ὀργήν μου ἐν πυρὶ ὀργῆς μου ἐμφυσήσω ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ παραδώσω σε εἰς χεῖρας ἀνδρῶν βαρβάρων τεκταινόντων διαφθοράν

37 ἐν πυρὶ ἔσῃ κατάβρωμα τὸ αἷμά σου ἔσται ἐν μέσῳ τῆς γῆς σου οὐ μὴ γένηταί σου μνεία διότι ἐγὼ κύριος λελάληκα

1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me, dicens:

2 [Fili hominis, pone faciem tuam ad Jerusalem,
et stilla ad sanctuaria,
et propheta contra humum Israël.

3 Et dices terræ Israël:
Hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce ego ad te,
et ejiciam gladium meum de vagina sua,
et occidam in te justum et impium.

4 Pro eo autem quod occidi in te justum et impium,
idcirco egredietur gladius meus de vagina sua
ad omnem carnem, ab austro usque ad aquilonem:

5 ut sciat omnis caro quia ego Dominus,
eduxi gladium meum de vagina sua irrevocabilem.

6 Et tu, fili hominis, ingemisce in contritione lumborum,
et in amaritudinibus ingemisce coram eis.

7 Cumque dixerint ad te: Quare tu gemis?
dices: Pro auditu:
quia venit, et tabescet omne cor,
et dissolventur universæ manus,
et infirmabitur omnis spiritus,
et per cuncta genua fluent aquæ:
ecce venit, et fiet, ait Dominus Deus.]

8 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me, dicens:

9 Fili hominis, propheta, et dices: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: loquere: [Gladius, gladius exacutus est, et limatus:

10 ut cædat victimas, exacutus est:
ut splendeat, limatus est:
qui moves sceptrum filii mei, succidisti omne lignum.

11 Et dedi eum ad levigandum, ut teneatur manu:
iste exacutus est gladius, et iste limatus est,
ut sit in manu interficientis.

12 Clama et ulula, fili hominis,
quia hic factus est in populo meo,
hic in cunctis ducibus Israël qui fugerant:
gladio traditi sunt cum populo meo:
idcirco plaude super femur,

13 quia probatus est:
et hoc, cum sceptrum subverterit, et non erit,
dicit Dominus Deus.

14 Tu ergo, fili hominis, propheta,
et percute manu ad manum:
et duplicetur gladius,
ac triplicetur gladius interfectorum:
hic est gladius occisionis magnæ,
qui obstupescere eos facit

15 et corde tabescere,
et multiplicat ruinas.
In omnibus portis eorum dedi conturbationem gladii acuti,
et limati ad fulgendum,
amicti ad cædem.

16 Exacuere, vade ad dexteram sive ad sinistram,
quocumque faciei tuæ est appetitus.

17 Quin et ego plaudam manu ad manum,
et implebo indignationem meam:
ego Dominus locutus sum.]

18 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me, dicens:

19 Et tu, fili hominis, pone tibi duas vias, ut veniat gladius regis Babylonis: de terra una egredientur ambæ: et manu capiet conjecturam; in capite viæ civitatis conjiciet.

20 Viam pones ut veniat gladius ad Rabbath filiorum Ammon, et ad Judam in Jerusalem munitissimam.

21 Stetit enim rex Babylonis in bivio, in capite duarum viarum, divinationem quærens, commiscens sagittas: interrogavit idola, exta consuluit.

22 Ad dexteram ejus facta est divinatio super Jerusalem, ut ponat arietes, ut aperiat os in cæde, ut elevet vocem in ululatu, ut ponat arietes contra portas, ut comportet aggerem, ut ædificet munitiones.

23 Eritque quasi consulens frustra oraculum in oculis eorum, et sabbatorum otium imitans: ipse autem recordabitur iniquitatis ad capiendum.

24 Idcirco hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Pro eo quod recordati estis iniquitatis vestræ, et revelastis prævaricationes vestras, et apparuerunt peccata vestra in omnibus cogitationibus vestris, pro eo, inquam, quod recordati estis, manu capiemini.

25 Tu autem, profane, impie dux Israël, cujus venit dies in tempore iniquitatis præfinita:

26 hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Aufer cidarim, tolle coronam: nonne hæc est quæ humilem sublevavit, et sublimem humiliavit?

27 Iniquitatem, iniquitatem, iniquitatem ponam eam: et hoc non factum est, donec veniret cujus est judicium, et tradam ei.

28 Et tu, fili hominis, propheta, et dic: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus ad filios Ammon, et ad opprobrium eorum: et dices: [Mucro, mucro, evagina te ad occidendum:
lima te ut interficias et fulgeas:

29 cum tibi viderentur vana,
et divinarentur mendacia,
ut dareris super colla vulneratorum impiorum,
quorum venit dies in tempore iniquitatis præfinita.

30 Revertere ad vaginam tuam,
in loco in quo creatus es:
in terra nativitatis tuæ judicabo te.

31 Et effundam super te indignationem meam;
in igne furoris mei sufflabo in te:
daboque te in manus hominum insipientium,
et fabricantium interitum.

32 Igni eris cibus;
sanguis tuus erit in medio terræ;
oblivioni traderis:
quia ego Dominus locutus sum.]
