1 Be ye gathered and closely joined together, O unchastened nation; 2 before ye become as the flower that passes away, before the anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the wrath of the Lord come upon you. 3 Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth; do judgment, and seek justice, and answer accordingly; that ye may be hid in the day of the wrath of the Lord. 4 For Gaza shall be utterly spoiled, and Ascalon shall be destroyed; and Azotus shall be cast forth at noon-day, and Accaron shall be rooted up. 5 Woe to them that dwell on the border of the sea, neighbours of the Cretans! the word of the Lord is against you, O Chanaan, land of the Philistines, and I will destroy you out of [your] dwelling-place. 6 And Crete shall be a pasture of flocks, and a fold of sheep. 7 And the sea coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Juda; they shall pasture upon them in the houses of Ascalon; they shall rest in the evening because of the children of Juda; for the Lord their God has visited them, and he will turn away their captivity. 8 I have heard the revilings of Moab, and the insults of the children of Ammon, wherewith they have reviled my people, and magnified themselves against my coasts. 9 Therefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Moab shall be as Sodoma, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrha; and Damascus [shall be] left as a heap of the threshing-floor, and desolate for ever: and the remnant of my people shall plunder them, and the remnant of my nation shall inherit them. 10 This is their punishment in return for their haughtiness, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the Lord Almighty. 11 The Lord shall appear against them, and shall utterly destroy all the gods of the nations of the earth; and they shall worship him every one from his place, [even] all the islands of the nations. 12 Ye Ethiopians also are the slain of my sword. 13 And he shall stretch forth his hand against the north and destroy the Assyrian, and make Nineve a dry wilderness, [even] as a desert. 14 And flocks, and all the wild beasts of the land, and chameleons shall feed in the midst thereof: and hedgehogs shall lodge in the ceilings thereof; and wild beasts shall cry in the breaches thereof, and ravens in her porches, whereas her loftiness was [as] as cedar. 15 This is the scornful city that dwells securely, that says in her heart, I am, and there is no longer any [to be] after me: how is she become desolate, a habitation of wild beasts! every one that passes through her shall hiss, and shake his hands. ΣΥΝΑΧΘΗΤΕ καὶ συνδέθητε, τὸ ἔθνος τὸ ἀπαίδευτον, 2 πρὸ τοῦ γενέσθαι ὑμᾶς ὡς ἄνθος παραπορευόμενον, πρὸ τοῦ ἐπελθεῖν ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς ὀργὴν Κυρίου, πρὸ τοῦ ἐπελθεῖν ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς ἡμέραν θυμοῦ Κυρίου. 3 ζητήσατε τὸν Κύριον, πάντες ταπεινοὶ γῆς· κρίμα ἐργάζεσθε καὶ δικαιοσύνην ζητήσατε καὶ ἀποκρίνασθε αὐτά, ὅπως σκεπασθῆτε ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ὀργῆς Κυρίου. 4 διότι Γάζα διηρπασμένη ἔσται, καὶ ᾿Ασκάλων εἰς ἀφανισμόν, καὶ ῎Αζωτος μεσημβρίας ἐκριφήσεται, καὶ ᾿Ακκαρὼν ἐκριζωθήσεται. 5 οὐαὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὸ σχοίνισμα τῆς θαλάσσης, πάροικοι Κρητῶν· λόγος Κυρίου ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς, Χαναὰν γῆ ἀλλοφύλων, καὶ ἀπολῶ ὑμᾶς ἐκ κατοικίας. 6 καὶ ἔσται Κρήτη νομὴ ποιμνίων καὶ μάνδρα προβάτων. 7 καὶ ἔσται τὸ σχοίνισμα τῆς θαλάσσης τοῖς καταλοίποις οἴκου ᾿Ιούδα· ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς νεμήσονται ἐν τοῖς οἴκοις ᾿Ασκάλωνος, δείλης καταλύσουσιν ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν ᾿Ιούδα, ὅτι ἐπέσκεπται αὐτοὺς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀποστρέψει τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν αὐτῶν. - 8 ῎Ηκουσα ὀνειδισμοὺς Μωὰβ καὶ κονδυλισμοὺς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμών, ἐν οἷς ὠνείδιζον τὸν λαόν μου καὶ ἐμεγαλύνοντο ἐπὶ τὰ ὅριά μου. 9 διὰ τοῦτο ζῶ ἐγώ, λέγει Κύριος τῶν δυνάμεων ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, διότι Μωὰβ ὡς Σόδομα ἔσται καὶ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν ὡς Γόμορρα, καὶ Δαμασκὸς ἐκλελειμμένη ὡς θιμωνία ἅλωνος καὶ ἠφανισμένη εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα· καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι λαοῦ μου διαρπῶνται αὐτοὺς καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι ἔθνους μου κληρονομήσουσιν αὐτούς. 10 αὕτη αὐτοῖς ἀντὶ τῆς ὕβρεως αὐτῶν, διότι ὠνείδισαν καὶ ἐμεγαλύνθησαν ἐπὶ τὸν Κύριον τὸν παντοκράτορα. 11 ἐπιφανήσεται Κύριος ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσει πάντας τοὺς θεοὺς τῶν ἐθνῶν τῆς γῆς, καὶ προσκυνήσουσιν αὐτῷ ἕκαστος ἐκ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ, πᾶσαι αἱ νῆσοι τῶν ἐθνῶν. - 12 Καὶ ὑμεῖς, Αἰθίοπες, τραυματίαι ῥομφαίας μού ἐστε. 13 καὶ ἐκτενεῖ τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ βορρᾶν καὶ ἀπολεῖ τὸν ᾿Ασσύριον καὶ θήσει τὴν Νινευὴ εἰς ἀφανισμὸν ἄνυδρον ὡς ἔρημον. 14 καὶ νεμήσονται ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς ποίμνια καὶ πάντα τὰ θηρία τῆς γῆς, καὶ χαμαιλέοντες καί ἐχῖνοι ἐν τοῖς φατνώμασιν αὐτῆς κοιτασθήσονται, καὶ θηρία φωνήσει ἐν τοῖς διορύγμασιν αὐτῆς καὶ κόρακες ἐν τοῖς πυλῶσιν αὐτῆς, διότι κέδρος τὸ ἀνάστημα αὐτῆς. 15 αὕτη ἡ πόλις ἡ φαυλίστρια ἡ κατοικοῦσα ἐπ᾿ ἐλπίδι, ἡ λέγουσα ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτῆς· ἐγώ εἰμι, καὶ οὐκ ἔστι μετ᾿ ἐμὲ ἔτι. πῶς ἐγενήθη εἰς ἀφανισμὸν νομὴ θηρίων· πᾶς ὁ διαπορευόμενος δι᾿ αὐτῆς συριεῖ καὶ κινήσει τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ.
