Ezekiel 33


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

2  Son1121 of man,120 speak1696 to413 the children1121 of thy people,5971 and say559 unto413 them, When3588 I bring935 the sword2719 upon5921 a land,776 if the people5971 of the land776 take3947 a259 man376 of their coasts,4480 7097 and set5414 him for their watchman:6822

3  If when he seeth7200 853 the sword2719 come935 upon5921 the land,776 he blow8628 the trumpet,7782 and warn2094 853 the people;5971

4  Then whosoever heareth8085 8085 853 the sound6963 of the trumpet,7782 and taketh not warning;2094 3808 if the sword2719 come,935 and take him away,3947 his blood1818 shall be1961 upon his own head.7218

5  He heard8085 853 the sound6963 of the trumpet,7782 and took not warning;2094 3808 his blood1818 shall be1961 upon him. But he1931 that taketh warning2094 shall deliver4422 his soul.5315

6  But if3588 the watchman6822 see7200 853 the sword2719 come,935 and blow8628 not3808 the trumpet,7782 and the people5971 be not3808 warned;2094 if the sword2719 come,935 and take3947 any person5315 from among4480 them, he1931 is taken away3947 in his iniquity;5771 but his blood1818 will I require1875 at the watchman's6822 hand.4480 3027

7  So thou,859 O son1121 of man,120 I have set5414 thee a watchman6822 unto the house1004 of Israel;3478 therefore thou shalt hear8085 the word1697 at my mouth,4480 6310 and warn2094 them from4480 me.

8  When I say559 unto the wicked,7563 O wicked7563 man, thou shalt surely die;4191 4191 if thou dost not3808 speak1696 to warn2094 the wicked7563 from his way,4480 1870 that1931 wicked7563 man shall die4191 in his iniquity;5771 but his blood1818 will I require1245 at thine hand.4480 3027

9  Nevertheless, if3588 thou859 warn2094 the wicked7563 of his way4480 1870 to turn7725 from4480 it; if he do not3808 turn7725 from his way,4480 1870 he1931 shall die4191 in his iniquity;5771 but thou859 hast delivered5337 thy soul.5315

10  Therefore, O thou859 son1121 of man,120 speak559 unto413 the house1004 of Israel;3478 Thus3651 ye speak,559 saying,559 If3588 our transgressions6588 and our sins2403 be upon5921 us, and we587 pine away4743 in them, how349 should we then live?2421

11  Say559 unto413 them, As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the Lord136 GOD,3069 I have no pleasure518 2654 in the death4194 of the wicked;7563 but3588 518 that the wicked7563 turn7725 from his way4480 1870 and live:2421 turn7725 ye, turn7725 ye from your evil7451 ways;4480 1870 for why4100 will ye die,4191 O house1004 of Israel?3478

12  Therefore, thou859 son1121 of man,120 say559 unto413 the children1121 of thy people,5971 The righteousness6666 of the righteous6662 shall not3808 deliver5337 him in the day3117 of his transgression:6588 as for the wickedness7564 of the wicked,7563 he shall not3808 fall3782 thereby in the day3117 that he turneth7725 from his wickedness;4480 7562 neither3808 shall the righteous6662 be able3201 to live2421 for his righteousness in the day3117 that he sinneth.2398

13  When I shall say559 to the righteous,6662 that he shall surely live;2421 2421 if he1931 trust982 to5921 his own righteousness,6666 and commit6213 iniquity,5766 all3605 his righteousnesses6666 shall not3808 be remembered;2142 but for his iniquity5766 that834 he hath committed,6213 he shall die4191 for it.

14  Again, when I say559 unto the wicked,7563 Thou shalt surely die;4191 4191 if he turn7725 from his sin,4480 2403 and do6213 that which is lawful4941 and right;6666

15  If the wicked7563 restore7725 the pledge,2258 give again7999 that he had robbed,1500 walk1980 in the statutes2708 of life,2416 without1115 committing6213 iniquity;5766 he shall surely live,2421 2421 he shall not3808 die.4191

16  None3808 3605 of his sins2403 that834 he hath committed2398 shall be mentioned2142 unto him: he hath done6213 that which is lawful4941 and right;6666 he shall surely live.2421 2421

17  Yet the children1121 of thy people5971 say,559 The way1870 of the Lord136 is not equal:8505 3808 but as for them,1992 their way1870 is not equal.8505 3808

18  When the righteous6662 turneth7725 from his righteousness,4480 6666 and committeth6213 iniquity,5766 he shall even die4191 thereby.

19  But if the wicked7563 turn7725 from his wickedness,4480 7564 and do6213 that which is lawful4941 and right,6666 he1931 shall live2421 thereby.5921

20  Yet ye say,559 The way1870 of the Lord136 is not equal.8505 3808 O ye house1004 of Israel,3478 I will judge8199 you every one376 after his ways.1870

21  And it came to pass1961 in the twelfth8147 6240 year8141 of our captivity,1546 in the tenth6224 month, in the fifth2568 day of the month,2320 that one that had escaped6412 out of Jerusalem4480 3389 came935 unto413 me, saying,559 The city5892 is smitten.5221

22  Now the hand3027 of the LORD3068 was1961 upon413 me in the evening,6153 before6440 he that was escaped6412 came;935 and had opened6605 853 my mouth,6310 until5704 he came935 to413 me in the morning;1242 and my mouth6310 was opened,6605 and I was no more dumb.481 3808 5750

23  Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

24  Son1121 of man,120 they that inhabit3427 those428 wastes2723 of5921 the land127 of Israel3478 speak,559 saying,559 Abraham85 was1961 one,259 and he inherited3423 853 the land:776 but we587 are many;7227 the land776 is given5414 us for inheritance.4181

25  Wherefore3651 say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Ye eat398 with5921 the blood,1818 and lift up5375 your eyes5869 toward413 your idols,1544 and shed8210 blood:1818 and shall ye possess3423 the land?776

26  Ye stand5975 upon5921 your sword,2719 ye work6213 abomination,8441 and ye defile2930 every one376 853 his neighbor's7453 wife:802 and shall ye possess3423 the land?776

27  Say559 thou thus3541 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 As I589 live,2416 surely518 3808 they that834 are in the wastes2723 shall fall5307 by the sword,2719 and him that834 is in5921 the open6440 field7704 will I give5414 to the beasts2416 to be devoured,398 and they that834 be in the forts4679 and in the caves4631 shall die4191 of the pestilence.1698

28  For I will lay5414 853 the land776 most desolate,8077 4923 and the pomp1347 of her strength5797 shall cease;7673 and the mountains2022 of Israel3478 shall be desolate,8074 that none4480 369 shall pass through.5674

29  Then shall they know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD,3068 when I have laid5414 853 the land776 most desolate8077 4923 because of5921 all3605 their abominations8441 which834 they have committed.6213

30  Also, thou859 son1121 of man,120 the children1121 of thy people5971 still are talking1696 against thee by681 the walls7023 and in the doors6607 of the houses,1004 and speak1696 one2297 to854 another,259 every one376 to854 his brother,251 saying,559 Come,935 I pray you,4994 and hear8085 what4100 is the word1697 that cometh forth3318 from4480 854 the LORD.3068

31  And they come935 unto413 thee as the people5971 cometh,3996 and they sit3427 before6440 thee as my people,5971 and they hear8085 853 thy words,1697 but they will not3808 do6213 them: for3588 with their mouth6310 they1992 show6213 much love,5690 but their heart3820 goeth1980 after310 their covetousness.1215

32  And, lo,2009 thou art unto them as a very lovely5690 song7892 of one that hath a pleasant3303 voice,6963 and can play well on an instrument:5059 3190 for they hear8085 853 thy words,1697 but they do6213 them not.369

33  And when this cometh to pass,935 (lo,2009 it will come,)935 then shall they know3045 that3588 a prophet5030 hath been1961 among8432 them.


1 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

2 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου λάλησον τοῖς υἱοῖς τοῦ λαοῦ σου καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς γῆ ἐφ᾽ ἣν ἂν ἐπάγω ῥομφαίαν καὶ λάβῃ ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς ἄνθρωπον ἕνα ἐξ αὐτῶν καὶ δῶσιν αὐτὸν ἑαυτοῖς εἰς σκοπόν

3 καὶ ἴδῃ τὴν ῥομφαίαν ἐρχομένην ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ σαλπίσῃ τῇ σάλπιγγι καὶ σημάνῃ τῷ λαῷ

4 καὶ ἀκούσῃ ὁ ἀκούσας τὴν φωνὴν τῆς σάλπιγγος καὶ μὴ φυλάξηται καὶ ἐπέλθῃ ἡ ῥομφαία καὶ καταλάβῃ αὐτόν τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ ἔσται

5 ὅτι τὴν φωνὴν τῆς σάλπιγγος ἀκούσας οὐκ ἐφυλάξατο τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἔσται καὶ οὗτος ὅτι ἐφυλάξατο τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἐξείλατο

6 καὶ ὁ σκοπός ἐὰν ἴδῃ τὴν ῥομφαίαν ἐρχομένην καὶ μὴ σημάνῃ τῇ σάλπιγγι καὶ ὁ λαὸς μὴ φυλάξηται καὶ ἐλθοῦσα ἡ ῥομφαία λάβῃ ἐξ αὐτῶν ψυχήν αὕτη διὰ τὴν αὑτῆς ἀνομίαν ἐλήμφθη καὶ τὸ αἷμα ἐκ τῆς χειρὸς τοῦ σκοποῦ ἐκζητήσω

7 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου σκοπὸν δέδωκά σε τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ καὶ ἀκούσῃ ἐκ στόματός μου λόγον

8 ἐν τῷ εἶπαί με τῷ ἁμαρτωλῷ θανάτῳ θανατωθήσῃ καὶ μὴ λαλήσῃς τοῦ φυλάξασθαι τὸν ἀσεβῆ ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ αὐτὸς ὁ ἄνομος τῇ ἀνομίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται τὸ δὲ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου ἐκζητήσω

9 σὺ δὲ ἐὰν προαπαγγείλῃς τῷ ἀσεβεῖ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἀποστρέψαι ἀπ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ μὴ ἀποστρέψῃ ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ οὗτος τῇ ἀσεβείᾳ αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται καὶ σὺ τὴν ψυχὴν σαυτοῦ ἐξῄρησαι

10 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου εἰπὸν τῷ οἴκῳ Ισραηλ οὕτως ἐλαλήσατε λέγοντες αἱ πλάναι ἡμῶν καὶ αἱ ἀνομίαι ἡμῶν ἐφ᾽ ἡμῖν εἰσιν καὶ ἐν αὐταῖς ἡμεῖς τηκόμεθα καὶ πῶς ζησόμεθα

11 εἰπὸν αὐτοῖς ζῶ ἐγώ τάδε λέγει κύριος οὐ βούλομαι τὸν θάνατον τοῦ ἀσεβοῦς ὡς τὸ ἀποστρέψαι τὸν ἀσεβῆ ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ζῆν αὐτόν ἀποστροφῇ ἀποστρέψατε ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ ἵνα τί ἀποθνῄσκετε οἶκος Ισραηλ

12 εἰπὸν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ λαοῦ σου δικαιοσύνη δικαίου οὐ μὴ ἐξέληται αὐτὸν ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ πλανηθῇ καὶ ἀνομία ἀσεβοῦς οὐ μὴ κακώσῃ αὐτὸν ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ ἀποστρέψῃ ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας αὐτοῦ καὶ δίκαιος οὐ μὴ δύνηται σωθῆναι

13 ἐν τῷ εἶπαί με τῷ δικαίῳ οὗτος πέποιθεν ἐπὶ τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσῃ ἀνομίαν πᾶσαι αἱ δικαιοσύναι αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ ἀναμνησθῶσιν ἐν τῇ ἀδικίᾳ αὐτοῦ ᾗ ἐποίησεν ἐν αὐτῇ ἀποθανεῖται

14 καὶ ἐν τῷ εἶπαί με τῷ ἀσεβεῖ θανάτῳ θανατωθήσῃ καὶ ἀποστρέψῃ ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσῃ κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην

15 καὶ ἐνεχύρασμα ἀποδῷ καὶ ἅρπαγμα ἀποτείσῃ ἐν προστάγμασιν ζωῆς διαπορεύηται τοῦ μὴ ποιῆσαι ἄδικον ζωῇ ζήσεται καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃ

16 πᾶσαι αἱ ἁμαρτίαι αὐτοῦ ἃς ἥμαρτεν οὐ μὴ ἀναμνησθῶσιν ὅτι κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην ἐποίησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς ζήσεται

17 καὶ ἐροῦσιν οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου οὐκ εὐθεῖα ἡ ὁδὸς τοῦ κυρίου καὶ αὕτη ἡ ὁδὸς αὐτῶν οὐκ εὐθεῖα

18 ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέψαι δίκαιον ἀπὸ τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσῃ ἀνομίας καὶ ἀποθανεῖται ἐν αὐταῖς

19 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέψαι τὸν ἁμαρτωλὸν ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσῃ κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην ἐν αὐτοῖς αὐτὸς ζήσεται

20 καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν ὃ εἴπατε οὐκ εὐθεῖα ἡ ὁδὸς κυρίου ἕκαστον ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ κρινῶ ὑμᾶς οἶκος Ισραηλ

21 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ δωδεκάτῳ ἔτει ἐν τῷ δωδεκάτῳ μηνὶ πέμπτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας ἡμῶν ἦλθεν ὁ ἀνασωθεὶς πρός με ἀπὸ Ιερουσαλημ λέγων ἑάλω ἡ πόλις

22 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ χεὶρ κυρίου ἑσπέρας πρὶν ἐλθεῖν αὐτὸν καὶ ἤνοιξέν μου τὸ στόμα ἕως ἦλθεν πρός με τὸ πρωί καὶ ἀνοιχθέν μου τὸ στόμα οὐ συνεσχέθη ἔτι

23 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

24 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὰς ἠρημωμένας ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς τοῦ Ισραηλ λέγουσιν εἷς ἦν Αβρααμ καὶ κατέσχεν τὴν γῆν καὶ ἡμεῖς πλείους ἐσμέν ἡμῖν δέδοται ἡ γῆ εἰς κατάσχεσιν

25 διὰ τοῦτο εἰπὸν αὐτοῖς τάδε λέγει κύριος κύριος

27 ζῶ ἐγώ εἰ μὴν οἱ ἐν ταῖς ἠρημωμέναις μαχαίρᾳ πεσοῦνται καὶ οἱ ἐπὶ προσώπου τοῦ πεδίου τοῖς θηρίοις τοῦ ἀγροῦ δοθήσονται εἰς κατάβρωμα καὶ τοὺς ἐν ταῖς τετειχισμέναις καὶ τοὺς ἐν τοῖς σπηλαίοις θανάτῳ ἀποκτενῶ

28 καὶ δώσω τὴν γῆν ἔρημον καὶ ἀπολεῖται ἡ ὕβρις τῆς ἰσχύος αὐτῆς καὶ ἐρημωθήσεται τὰ ὄρη τοῦ Ισραηλ διὰ τὸ μὴ εἶναι διαπορευόμενον

29 καὶ γνώσονται ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι κύριος καὶ ποιήσω τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν ἔρημον καὶ ἐρημωθήσεται διὰ πάντα τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἃ ἐποίησαν

30 καὶ σύ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου οἱ λαλοῦντες περὶ σοῦ παρὰ τὰ τείχη καὶ ἐν τοῖς πυλῶσι τῶν οἰκιῶν καὶ λαλοῦσιν ἄνθρωπος τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ λέγοντες συνέλθωμεν καὶ ἀκούσωμεν τὰ ἐκπορευόμενα παρὰ κυρίου

31 ἔρχονται πρὸς σέ ὡς συμπορεύεται λαός καὶ κάθηνται ἐναντίον σου καὶ ἀκούουσιν τὰ ῥήματά σου καὶ αὐτὰ οὐ μὴ ποιήσουσιν ὅτι ψεῦδος ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν καὶ ὀπίσω τῶν μιασμάτων ἡ καρδία αὐτῶν

32 καὶ γίνῃ αὐτοῖς ὡς φωνὴ ψαλτηρίου ἡδυφώνου εὐαρμόστου καὶ ἀκούσονταί σου τὰ ῥήματα καὶ οὐ μὴ ποιήσουσιν αὐτά

33 καὶ ἡνίκα ἂν ἔλθῃ ἐροῦσιν ἰδοὺ ἥκει καὶ γνώσονται ὅτι προφήτης ἦν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν

1 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens:

2 Fili hominis, loquere ad filios populi tui, et dices ad eos: Terra, cum induxero super eam gladium, et tulerit populus terræ virum unum de novissimis suis, et constituerit eum super se speculatorem:

3 et ille viderit gladium venientem super terram, et cecinerit buccina, et annuntiaverit populo:

4 audiens autem quisquis ille est sonitum buccinæ, et non se observaverit, veneritque gladius, et tulerit eum: sanguis ipsius super caput ejus erit.

5 Sonum buccinæ audivit, et non se observavit: sanguis ejus in ipso erit. Si autem se custodierit, animam suam salvabit.

6 Quod si speculator viderit gladium venientem, et non insonuerit buccina, et populus se non custodierit, veneritque gladius, et tulerit de eis animam: ille quidem in iniquitate sua captus est; sanguinem autem ejus de manu speculatoris requiram.

7 Et tu, fili hominis, speculatorem dedi te domui Israël: audiens ergo ex ore meo sermonem, annuntiabis eis ex me.

8 Si me dicente ad impium: Impie, morte morieris: non fueris locutus ut se custodiat impius a via sua, ipse impius in iniquitate sua morietur; sanguinem autem ejus de manu tua requiram.

9 Si autem annuntiante te ad impium ut a viis suis convertatur, non fuerit conversus a via sua, ipse in iniquitate sua morietur, porro tu animam tuam liberasti.

10 Tu ergo, fili hominis, dic ad domum Israël: Sic locuti estis, dicentes: Iniquitates nostræ et peccata nostra super nos sunt, et in ipsis nos tabescimus: quomodo ergo vivere poterimus?

11 Dic ad eos: Vivo ego, dicit Dominus Deus, nolo mortem impii, sed ut convertatur impius a via sua, et vivat. Convertimini, convertimini a viis vestris pessimis, et quare moriemini, domus Israël?

12 Tu itaque, fili hominis, dic ad filios populi tui: Justitia justi non liberabit eum, in quacumque die peccaverit, et impietas impii non nocebit ei, in quacumque die conversus fuerit ab impietate sua: et justus non poterit vivere in justitia sua, in quacumque die peccaverit.

13 Etiamsi dixero justo quod vita vivat, et confisus in justitia sua fecerit iniquitatem, omnes justitiæ ejus oblivioni tradentur, et in iniquitate sua quam operatus est, in ipsa morietur.

14 Si autem dixero impio: Morte morieris: et egerit pœnitentiam a peccato suo, feceritque judicium et justitiam,

15 et pignus restituerit ille impius, rapinamque reddiderit, in mandatis vitæ ambulaverit, nec fecerit quidquam injustum: vita vivet, et non morietur.

16 Omnia peccata ejus quæ peccavit, non imputabuntur ei: judicium et justitiam fecit: vita vivet.

17 Et dixerunt filii populi tui: Non est æqui ponderis via Domini: et ipsorum via injusta est.

18 Cum enim recesserit justus a justitia sua, feceritque iniquitates, morietur in eis.

19 Et cum recesserit impius ab impietate sua, feceritque judicium et justitiam, vivet in eis.

20 Et dicitis: Non est recta via Domini. Unumquemque juxta vias suas judicabo de vobis, domus Israël.

21 Et factum est in duodecimo anno, in decimo mense, in quinta mensis transmigrationis nostræ, venit ad me qui fugerat de Jerusalem, dicens: Vastata est civitas.

22 Manus autem Domini facta fuerat ad me vespere, antequam veniret qui fugerat: aperuitque os meum donec veniret ad me mane: et aperto ore meo, non silui amplius.

23 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens:

24 Fili hominis, qui habitant in ruinosis his super humum Israël, loquentes aiunt: Unus erat Abraham, et hæreditate possedit terram: nos autem multi sumus: nobis data est terra in possessionem.

25 Idcirco dices ad eos: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus: Qui in sanguine comeditis, et oculos vestros levatis ad immunditias vestras, et sanguinem funditis, numquid terram hæreditate possidebitis?

26 stetistis in gladiis vestris, fecistis abominationes, et unusquisque uxorem proximi sui polluit: et terram hæreditate possidebitis?

27 Hæc dices ad eos: Sic dicit Dominus Deus: Vivo ego, quia qui in ruinosis habitant, gladio cadent: et qui in agro est, bestiis tradetur ad devorandum: qui autem in præsidiis et speluncis sunt, peste morientur.

28 Et dabo terram in solitudinem et in desertum, et deficiet superba fortitudo ejus: et desolabuntur montes Israël, eo quod nullus sit qui per eos transeat:

29 et scient quia ego Dominus, cum dedero terram eorum desolatam et desertam, propter universas abominationes suas quas operati sunt.

30 Et tu, fili hominis, filii populi tui, qui loquuntur de te juxta muros et in ostiis domorum, et dicunt unus ad alterum, vir ad proximum suum, loquentes: Venite, et audiamus quis sit sermo egrediens a Domino.

31 Et veniunt ad te, quasi si ingrediatur populus, et sedent coram te populus meus: et audiunt sermones tuos, et non faciunt eos: quia in canticum oris sui vertunt illos, et avaritiam suam sequitur cor eorum.

32 Et es eis quasi carmen musicum, quod suavi dulcique sono canitur: et audiunt verba tua, et non faciunt ea.

33 Et cum venerit quod prædictum est (ecce enim venit), tunc scient quod prophetes fuerit inter eos.
