1 Thus saith the Lord, Go and procure for thyself a linen girdle, and put it about thy loins, and let it not be put in water. 2 So I procured the girdle according to the word of the Lord, and put it about my loins. 3 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 4 Take the girdle that is upon thy loins, and arise, and go to the Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock. 5 So I went, and hid it by the Euphrates, as the Lord commanded me. 6 And it came to pass after many days, that the Lord said to me, Arise, go to the Euphrates, and take thence the girdle, which I commanded thee to hide there. 7 So I went to the river Euphrates, and dug, and took the girdle out of the place where I [had] buried it: and, behold, it was rotten, utterly good for nothing. 8 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Thus saith the Lord, 9 Thus will I mar the pride of Juda, and the pride of Jerusalem; 10 [even] this great pride [of the men] that will not hearken to my words, and have gone after strange gods, to serve them, and to worship them: and they shall be as this girdle, which can be used for nothing. 11 For as a girdle cleaves about the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave to myself the house of Israel, and the whole house of Juda; that they might be to me a famous people, and a praise, and a glory: but they did not hearken to me. 12 And thou shalt say to this people, Every bottle shall be filled with wine: and it shall come to pass, if they shall say to thee, Shall we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine? that thou shalt say to them, 13 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I [will] fill the inhabitants of this land, and their kings the sons of David that sit upon their throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and Juda and all the dwellers in Jerusalem, with strong drink. 14 And I will scatter them a man and his brother, and their fathers and their sons together: I will not have compassion, saith the Lord, and I will not spare, neither will I pity [to save them] from destruction. 15 Hear ye, and give ear, and be not proud: for the Lord has spoken. 16 Give glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and ye shall wait for light, and behold the shadow of death, and they shall be brought into darkness. 17 But if ye will not hearken, your soul shall weep in secret because of pride, and your eyes shall pour down tears, because the Lord’s flock is sorely bruised. 18 Say ye to the king and the princes, Humble yourselves, and sit down; for your crown of glory is removed from your head. 19 The cities toward the south were shut, and there was none to open [them]: Juda is removed [into captivity,] they have suffered a complete removal. 20 Lift up thine eyes, O Jerusalem, and behold them that come from the north; where is the flock that was given thee, the sheep of thy glory? 21 What wilt thou say when they shall visit thee, for thou didst teach them lessons for rule against thyself; shall not pangs seize thee as a woman in travail? 22 And if thou shouldest say in thine heart, Wherefore have these things happened to me? Because of the abundance of thine iniquity have thy skirts been discovered, that thine heels might be exposed. 23 If the Ethiopian shall change his skin, or the leopardess her spots, then shall ye be able to do good, having learnt evil. 24 So I scattered them as sticks carried by the wind into the wilderness. 25 Thus is thy lot, and the reward of your disobedience to me, saith the Lord; as thou didst forget me, and trust in lies, 26 I also will expose thy skirts upon thy face, and thy shame shall be seen; 27 thine adultery also, and thy neighing, and the looseness of thy fornication: on the hills and in the fields I have seen thine abominations. Woe to thee, O Jerusalem, for thou hast not been purified so as to follow me; how long yet [shall it be]? ΤΑΔΕ λέγει Κύριος· βάδισον καὶ κτῆσαι σεαυτῷ περίζωμα λινοῦν καὶ περίθου περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου, καὶ ἐν ὕδατι οὐ διελεύσεται. 2 καὶ ἐκτησάμην τὸ περίζωμα κατὰ τὸν λόγον Κυρίου καὶ περιέθηκα περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν μου. 3 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 4 λαβὲ τὸ περίζωμα τὸ περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἀνάστηθι καὶ βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ κατάκρυψον αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ ἐν τῇ τρυμαλιᾷ τῆς πέτρας. 5 καὶ ἐπορεύθην καὶ ἔκρυψα αὐτὸ ἐν τῷ Εὐφράτῃ, καθὼς ἐνετείλατό μοι Κύριος. 6 καὶ ἐγένετο μεθ’ ἡμέρας πολλὰς καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἀνάστηθι, βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ λαβὲ ἐκεῖθεν τὸ περίζωμα, ὃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τοῦ κατακρύψαι ἐκεῖ. 7 καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην ποταμὸν καὶ ὤρυξα καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ περίζωμα ἐκ τοῦ τόπου, οὗ κατώρυξα αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἰδοὺ διεφθαρμένον ἦν, ὃ οὐ μὴ χρησθῇ εἰς οὐθέν. 8 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· 9 οὕτω φθερῶ τὴν ὕβριν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ τὴν ὕβριν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, 10 τὴν πολλὴν ταύτην ὕβριν, τοὺς μὴ βουλομένους ὑπακούειν τῶν λόγων μου καὶ πορευθέντας ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῦ προσκυνεῖν αὐτοῖς, καὶ ἔσονται ὥσπερ τὸ περίζωμα τοῦτο, ὃ οὐ χρησθήσεται εἰς οὐθέν. 11 ὅτι καθάπερ κολλᾶται τὸ περίζωμα περὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, οὕτως ἐκόλλησα πρὸς ἐμαυτὸν τὸν οἶκον τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ πάντα οἶκον ᾿Ιούδα τοῦ γενέσθαι μοι εἰς λαὸν ὀνομαστὸν καὶ εἰς καύχημα καὶ εἰς δόξαν, καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσάν μου. 12 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον· πᾶς ἀσκὸς πληρωθήσεται οἴνου. καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν εἴπωσι πρός σε· μὴ γνόντες οὐ γνωσόμεθα ὅτι πᾶς ἀσκὸς πληρωθήσεται οἴνου; 13 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ πληρῶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν τοὺς καθημένους υἱοὺς τοῦ Δαυὶδ ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς προφήτας καὶ τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ μεθύσματι 14 καὶ διασκορπιῶ αὐτοὺς ἄνδρα καὶ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ. οὐκ ἐπιποθήσω, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ οὐ φείσομαι, καὶ οὐκ οἰκτειρήσω ἀπὸ διαφθορᾶς αὐτῶν. 15 ᾿Ακούσατε, καὶ ἐνωτίσασθε καὶ μὴ ἐπαίρεσθε, ὅτι Κύριος ἐλάλησε. 16 δότε τῷ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ ὑμῶν δόξαν πρὸ τοῦ συσκοτάσαι καὶ πρὸ τοῦ προσκόψαι πόδας ὑμῶν ἐπ’ ὄρη σκοτεινά, καὶ ἀναμενεῖτε εἰς φῶς, καὶ ἐκεῖ σκιὰ θανάτου, καὶ τεθήσονται εἰς σκότος. 17 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ἀκούσητε, κεκρυμμένως κλαύσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ὑμῶν ἀπὸ προσώπου ὕβρεως, καὶ κατάξουσιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν δάκρυα, ὅτι συνετρίβη τὸ ποίμνιον Κυρίου. 18 εἴπατε τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ τοῖς δυναστεύουσι· ταπεινώθητε καὶ καθίσατε, ὅτι καθῃρέθη ἀπὸ κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν στέφανος δόξης ὑμῶν. 19 πόλεις αἱ πρὸς νότον συνεκλείσθησαν. καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀνοίγων· ἀπῳκίσθη ᾿Ιούδας, συνετέλεσεν ἀποικίαν τελείαν. - 20 ᾿Ανάλαβε ὀφθαλμούς σου, ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἴδε τοὺς ἐρχομένους ἀπὸ βορρᾶ· ποῦ ἐστι τὸ ποίμνιον, ὃ ἐδόθη σοι, πρόβατα δόξης σου; 21 τί ἐρεῖς ὅταν ἐπισκέπτωνταί σε; καὶ σὺ ἐδίδαξας αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ σὲ μαθήματα εἰς ἀρχήν· οὐκ ὠδῖνες καθέξουσί σε καθὼς γυναῖκα τίκτουσαν; 22 καὶ ἐὰν εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου· διατί ἀπήντησέ μοι ταῦτα; διὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς ἀδικίας σου ἀνεκαλύφθη τὰ ὀπίσθιά σου παραδειγματισθῆναι τὰς πτέρνας σου. 23 εἰ ἀλλάξεται Αἰθίοψ τὸ δέρμα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάρδαλις τὰ ποικίλματα αὐτῆς, καὶ ὑμεῖς δυνήσεσθε εὖ ποιῆσαι μεμαθηκότες τὰ κακά. 24 καὶ διέσπειρα αὐτοὺς ὡς φρύγανα φερόμενα ἀπὸ ἀνέμου εἰς ἔρημον. 25 οὕτως ὁ κλῆρός σου καὶ μερὶς τοῦ ἀπειθεῖν ὑμᾶς ἐμοί, λέγει Κύριος, ὡς ἐπελάθου μου καὶ ἤλπισας ἐπὶ ψεύδεσι. 26 κἀγὼ ἀποκαλύψω τὰ ὀπίσω σου ἐπὶ τὸ πρόσωπόν σου, καὶ ὀφθήσεται ἡ ἀτιμία σου. 27 καὶ ἡ μοιχεία σου καὶ ὁ χρεμετισμός σου καὶ ἡ ἀπαλλοτρίωσις τῆς πορνείας σου ἐπὶ τῶν βουνῶν, καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς ἑώρακα τὰ βδελύγματά σου· οὐαί σοι, ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ὅτι οὐκ ἐκαθαρίσθης ὀπίσω μου· ἕως τίνος ἔτι;
