Isaiah 29


1  Woe1945 to Ariel,740 to Ariel,740 the city7151 where David1732 dwelt!2583 add5595 ye year8141 to5921 year;8141 let them kill5362 sacrifices.2282

2  Yet I will distress6693 Ariel,740 and there shall be1961 heaviness8386 and sorrow:592 and it shall be1961 unto me as Ariel.740

3  And I will camp2583 against5921 thee round about,1754 and will lay siege6696 against5921 thee with a mount,4674 and I will raise6965 forts4694 against5921 thee.

4  And thou shalt be brought down,8213 and shalt speak1696 out of the ground,4480 776 and thy speech565 shall be low7817 out of the dust,4480 6083 and thy voice6963 shall be,1961 as of one that hath a familiar spirit,178 out of the ground,4480 776 and thy speech565 shall whisper6850 out of the dust.4480 6083

5  Moreover the multitude1995 of thy strangers2114 shall be1961 like small1851 dust,80 and the multitude1995 of the terrible ones6184 shall be as chaff4671 that passeth away:5674 yea, it shall be1961 at an instant6621 suddenly.6597

6  Thou shalt be visited6485 of4480 5973 the LORD3068 of hosts6635 with thunder,7482 and with earthquake,7494 and great1419 noise,6963 with storm5492 and tempest,5591 and the flame3851 of devouring398 fire.784

7  And the multitude1995 of all3605 the nations1471 that fight6633 against5921 Ariel,740 even all3605 that fight6633 against her and her munition,4685 and that distress6693 her, shall be1961 as a dream2472 of a night3915 vision.2377

8  It shall even be1961 as when834 a hungry7457 man dreameth,2492 and, behold,2009 he eateth;398 but he awaketh,6974 and his soul5315 is empty:7386 or as when834 a thirsty man6771 dreameth,2492 and, behold,2009 he drinketh;8354 but he awaketh,6974 and, behold,2009 he is faint,5889 and his soul5315 hath appetite:8264 so3651 shall the multitude1995 of all3605 the nations1471 be,1961 that fight6633 against5921 mount2022 Zion.6726

9  Stay yourselves,4102 and wonder;8539 cry ye out,8173 and cry:8173 they are drunken,7937 but not3808 with wine;3196 they stagger,5128 but not3808 with strong drink.7941

10  For3588 the LORD3068 hath poured out5258 upon5921 you the spirit7307 of deep sleep,8639 and hath closed6105 853 your eyes:5869 853 the prophets5030 and your rulers,7218 the seers2374 hath he covered.3680

11  And the vision2380 of all3605 is become1961 unto you as the words1697 of a book5612 that is sealed,2856 which834 men deliver5414 to413 one that is learned,3045 5612 saying,559 Read7121 this,2088 I pray thee:4994 and he saith,559 I cannot;3201 3808 for3588 it1931 is sealed:2856

12  And the book5612 is delivered5414 to5921 him that834 is not learned,3045 3808 5612 saying,559 Read7121 this,2088 I pray thee:4994 and he saith,559 I am not learned.3045 3808 5612

13  Wherefore the Lord136 said,559 Forasmuch3282 3588 as this2088 people5971 draw near5066 me with their mouth,6310 and with their lips8193 do honor3513 me, but have removed their heart far7368 3820 from4480 me, and their fear3374 toward854 me is1961 taught3925 by the precept4687 of men:376

14  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 I will proceed3254 to do a marvelous work6381 among854 this2088 people,5971 even a marvelous work6381 and a wonder:6382 for the wisdom2451 of their wise2450 men shall perish,6 and the understanding998 of their prudent995 men shall be hid.5641

15  Woe1945 unto them that seek deep6009 to hide5641 their counsel6098 from the LORD,4480 3068 and their works4639 are1961 in the dark,4285 and they say,559 Who4310 seeth7200 us? and who4310 knoweth3045 us?

16  Surely518 your turning of things upside down2017 shall be esteemed2803 as the potter's3335 clay:2563 for3588 shall the work4639 say559 of him that made6213 it, He made6213 me not?3808 or shall the thing framed3336 say559 of him that framed3335 it, He had no understanding?995 3808

17  Is it not3808 yet5750 a very4213 little while,4592 and Lebanon3844 shall be turned7725 into a fruitful field,3759 and the fruitful field3759 shall be esteemed2803 as a forest?3293

18  And in that1931 day3117 shall the deaf2795 hear8085 the words1697 of the book,5612 and the eyes5869 of the blind5787 shall see7200 out of obscurity,4480 652 and out of darkness.4480 2822

19  The meek6035 also shall increase3254 their joy8057 in the LORD,3068 and the poor34 among men120 shall rejoice1523 in the Holy One6918 of Israel.3478

20  For3588 the terrible one6184 is brought to naught,656 and the scorner3887 is consumed,3615 and all3605 that watch8245 for iniquity205 are cut off:3772

21  That make a man an offender2398 120 for a word,1697 and lay a snare6983 for him that reproveth3198 in the gate,8179 and turn aside5186 the just6662 for a thing of naught.8414

22  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 who834 redeemed6299 853 Abraham,85 concerning413 the house1004 of Jacob,3290 Jacob3290 shall not3808 now6258 be ashamed,954 neither3808 shall his face6440 now6258 wax pale.2357

23  But when3588 he seeth7200 his children,3206 the work4639 of mine hands,3027 in the midst7130 of him, they shall sanctify6942 my name,8034 and sanctify6942 853 the Holy One6918 of Jacob,3290 and shall fear6206 the God430 of Israel.3478

24  They also that erred8582 in spirit7307 shall come3045 to understanding,998 and they that murmured7279 shall learn3925 doctrine.3948


1 οὐαὶ πόλις Αριηλ ἣν Δαυιδ ἐπολέμησεν συναγάγετε γενήματα ἐνιαυτὸν ἐπ᾽ ἐνιαυτόν φάγεσθε γὰρ σὺν Μωαβ

2 ἐκθλίψω γὰρ Αριηλ καὶ ἔσται αὐτῆς ἡ ἰσχὺς καὶ τὸ πλοῦτος ἐμοί

3 καὶ κυκλώσω ὡς Δαυιδ ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ βαλῶ περὶ σὲ χάρακα καὶ θήσω περὶ σὲ πύργους

4 καὶ ταπεινωθήσονται οἱ λόγοι σου εἰς τὴν γῆν καὶ εἰς τὴν γῆν οἱ λόγοι σου δύσονται καὶ ἔσται ὡς οἱ φωνοῦντες ἐκ τῆς γῆς ἡ φωνή σου καὶ πρὸς τὸ ἔδαφος ἡ φωνή σου ἀσθενήσει

5 καὶ ἔσται ὡς κονιορτὸς ἀπὸ τροχοῦ ὁ πλοῦτος τῶν ἀσεβῶν καὶ ὡς χνοῦς φερόμενος καὶ ἔσται ὡς στιγμὴ παραχρῆμα

6 παρὰ κυρίου σαβαωθ ἐπισκοπὴ γὰρ ἔσται μετὰ βροντῆς καὶ σεισμοῦ καὶ φωνῆς μεγάλης καταιγὶς φερομένη καὶ φλὸξ πυρὸς κατεσθίουσα

7 καὶ ἔσται ὡς ὁ ἐνυπνιαζόμενος ἐν ὕπνῳ ὁ πλοῦτος τῶν ἐθνῶν πάντων ὅσοι ἐπεστράτευσαν ἐπὶ Αριηλ καὶ πάντες οἱ στρατευσάμενοι ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ πάντες οἱ συνηγμένοι ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν καὶ θλίβοντες αὐτήν

8 καὶ ἔσονται ὡς οἱ ἐν ὕπνῳ πίνοντες καὶ ἔσθοντες καὶ ἐξαναστάντων μάταιον αὐτῶν τὸ ἐνύπνιον καὶ ὃν τρόπον ἐνυπνιάζεται ὁ διψῶν ὡς πίνων καὶ ἐξαναστὰς ἔτι διψᾷ ἡ δὲ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ εἰς κενὸν ἤλπισεν οὕτως ἔσται ὁ πλοῦτος πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν ὅσοι ἐπεστράτευσαν ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος Σιων

9 ἐκλύθητε καὶ ἔκστητε καὶ κραιπαλήσατε οὐκ ἀπὸ σικερα οὐδὲ ἀπὸ οἴνου

10 ὅτι πεπότικεν ὑμᾶς κύριος πνεύματι κατανύξεως καὶ καμμύσει τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τῶν προφητῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων αὐτῶν οἱ ὁρῶντες τὰ κρυπτά

11 καὶ ἔσονται ὑμῖν πάντα τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα ὡς οἱ λόγοι τοῦ βιβλίου τοῦ ἐσφραγισμένου τούτου ὃ ἐὰν δῶσιν αὐτὸ ἀνθρώπῳ ἐπισταμένῳ γράμματα λέγοντες ἀνάγνωθι ταῦτα καὶ ἐρεῖ οὐ δύναμαι ἀναγνῶναι ἐσφράγισται γάρ

12 καὶ δοθήσεται τὸ βιβλίον τοῦτο εἰς χεῖρας ἀνθρώπου μὴ ἐπισταμένου γράμματα καὶ ἐρεῖ αὐτῷ ἀνάγνωθι τοῦτο καὶ ἐρεῖ οὐκ ἐπίσταμαι γράμματα

13 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ἐγγίζει μοι ὁ λαὸς οὗτος τοῖς χείλεσιν αὐτῶν τιμῶσίν με ἡ δὲ καρδία αὐτῶν πόρρω ἀπέχει ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ μάτην δὲ σέβονταί με διδάσκοντες ἐντάλματα ἀνθρώπων καὶ διδασκαλίας

14 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ προσθήσω τοῦ μεταθεῖναι τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον καὶ μεταθήσω αὐτοὺς καὶ ἀπολῶ τὴν σοφίαν τῶν σοφῶν καὶ τὴν σύνεσιν τῶν συνετῶν κρύψω

15 οὐαὶ οἱ βαθέως βουλὴν ποιοῦντες καὶ οὐ διὰ κυρίου οὐαὶ οἱ ἐν κρυφῇ βουλὴν ποιοῦντες καὶ ἔσται ἐν σκότει τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν καὶ ἐροῦσιν τίς ἡμᾶς ἑώρακεν καὶ τίς ἡμᾶς γνώσεται ἢ ἃ ἡμεῖς ποιοῦμεν

16 οὐχ ὡς ὁ πηλὸς τοῦ κεραμέως λογισθήσεσθε μὴ ἐρεῖ τὸ πλάσμα τῷ πλάσαντι οὐ σύ με ἔπλασας ἢ τὸ ποίημα τῷ ποιήσαντι οὐ συνετῶς με ἐποίησας

17 οὐκέτι μικρὸν καὶ μετατεθήσεται ὁ Λίβανος ὡς τὸ ὄρος τὸ Χερμελ καὶ τὸ ὄρος τὸ Χερμελ εἰς δρυμὸν λογισθήσεται

18 καὶ ἀκούσονται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ κωφοὶ λόγους βιβλίου καὶ οἱ ἐν τῷ σκότει καὶ οἱ ἐν τῇ ὁμίχλῃ ὀφθαλμοὶ τυφλῶν βλέψονται

19 καὶ ἀγαλλιάσονται πτωχοὶ διὰ κύριον ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ καὶ οἱ ἀπηλπισμένοι τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἐμπλησθήσονται εὐφροσύνης

20 ἐξέλιπεν ἄνομος καὶ ἀπώλετο ὑπερήφανος καὶ ἐξωλεθρεύθησαν οἱ ἀνομοῦντες ἐπὶ κακίᾳ

21 καὶ οἱ ποιοῦντες ἁμαρτεῖν ἀνθρώπους ἐν λόγῳ πάντας δὲ τοὺς ἐλέγχοντας ἐν πύλαις πρόσκομμα θήσουσιν καὶ ἐπλαγίασαν ἐν ἀδίκοις δίκαιον

22 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ιακωβ ὃν ἀφώρισεν ἐξ Αβρααμ οὐ νῦν αἰσχυνθήσεται Ιακωβ οὐδὲ νῦν τὸ πρόσωπον μεταβαλεῖ Ισραηλ

23 ἀλλ᾽ ὅταν ἴδωσιν τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν τὰ ἔργα μου δι᾽ ἐμὲ ἁγιάσουσιν τὸ ὄνομά μου καὶ ἁγιάσουσιν τὸν ἅγιον Ιακωβ καὶ τὸν θεὸν τοῦ Ισραηλ φοβηθήσονται

24 καὶ γνώσονται οἱ τῷ πνεύματι πλανώμενοι σύνεσιν οἱ δὲ γογγύζοντες μαθήσονται ὑπακούειν καὶ αἱ γλώσσαι αἱ ψελλίζουσαι μαθήσονται λαλεῖν εἰρήνην

1 [Væ Ariel, Ariel
civitas, quam expugnavit David!
additus est annus ad annum:
solemnitates evolutæ sunt.

2 Et circumvallabo Ariel,
et erit tristis et mœrens,
et erit mihi quasi Ariel.

3 Et circumdabo quasi sphæram in circuitu tuo,
et jaciam contra te aggerem,
et munimenta ponam in obsidionem tuam.

4 Humiliaberis, de terra loqueris,
et de humo audietur eloquium tuum;
et erit quasi pythonis de terra vox tua,
et de humo eloquium tuum mussitabit.

5 Et erit sicut pulvis tenuis multitudo ventilantium te,
et sicut favilla pertransiens multitudo eorum qui contra te prævaluerunt;

6 eritque repente confestim.
A Domino exercituum visitabitur
in tonitruo, et commotione terræ, et voce magna
turbinis et tempestatis, et flammæ ignis devorantis.

7 Et erit sicut somnium visionis nocturnæ
multitudo omnium gentium quæ dimicaverunt contra Ariel,
et omnes qui militaverunt, et obsederunt,
et prævaluerunt adversus eam.

8 Et sicut somniat esuriens, et comedit,
cum autem fuerit expergefactus, vacua est anima ejus;
et sicut somniat sitiens et bibit,
et postquam fuerit expergefactus, lassus adhuc sitit,
et anima ejus vacua est:
sic erit multitudo omnium gentium
quæ dimicaverunt contra montem Sion.

9 Obstupescite et admiramini;
fluctuate et vacillate;
inebriamini, et non a vino;
movemini, et non ab ebrietate.

10 Quoniam miscuit vobis Dominus
spiritum soporis; claudet oculos vestros:
prophetas et principes vestros, qui vident visiones, operiet.

11 Et erit vobis visio omnium
sicut verba libri signati,
quem cum dederint scienti litteras,
dicent: Lege istum:
et respondebit: Non possum, signatus est enim.

12 Et dabitur liber nescienti litteras,
diceturque ei: Lege;
et respondebit: Nescio litteras.

13 Et dixit Dominus: Eo quod appropinquat populus iste ore suo,
et labiis suis glorificat me,
cor autem ejus longe est a me,
et timuerunt me mandato hominum et doctrinis,

14 ideo ecce ego addam ut admirationem faciam
populo huic miraculo grandi et stupendo;
peribit enim sapientia a sapientibus ejus,
et intellectus prudentium ejus abscondetur.

15 Væ qui profundi estis corde,
ut a Domino abscondatis consilium;
quorum sunt in tenebris opera,
et dicunt: Quis videt nos?
et quis novit nos?

16 Perversa est hæc vestra cogitatio;
quasi si lutum contra figulum cogitet,
et dicat opus factori suo: Non fecisti me;
et figmentum dicat fictori suo: Non intelligis.

17 Nonne adhuc in modico et in brevi
convertetur Libanus in carmel,
et carmel in saltum reputabitur?

18 Et audient in die illa surdi verba libri,
et de tenebris et caligine oculi cæcorum videbunt.

19 Et addent mites in Domino lætitiam,
et pauperes homines in Sancto Israël exsultabunt;

20 quoniam defecit qui prævalebat, consummatus est illusor,
et succisi sunt omnes qui vigilabant super iniquitatem,

21 qui peccare faciebant homines in verbo,
et arguentem in porta supplantabant,
et declinaverunt frustra a justo.

22 Propter hoc, hæc dicit Dominus ad domum Jacob,
qui redemit Abraham:
Non modo confundetur Jacob,
nec modo vultus ejus erubescet;

23 sed cum viderit filios suos,
opera manuum mearum in medio sui
sanctificantes nomen meum,
et sanctificabunt Sanctum Jacob,
et Deum Israël prædicabunt;

24 et scient errantes spiritu intellectum,
et mussitatores discent legem.]
