1 THUS SAITH THE LORD AGAINST THE PHILISTINES; 2 Behold, waters come up from the north, and shall become a sweeping torrent, and it shall sweep away the land, and its fulness; the city, and them that dwell in it: and men shall cry and all that dwell in the land shall howl, 3 at the sound of his rushing, at the sound of his hoofs, and at the rattling of his chariots, at the noise of his wheels: the fathers turned not to their children because of the weakness of their hands, 4 in the day that is coming to destroy all the Philistines: and I will utterly destroy Tyre and Sidon and all the rest of their allies: for the Lord will destroy the remaining inhabitants of the islands. 5 Baldness is come upon Gaza; Ascalon is cast away, and the remnant of the Enakim. 6 How long wilt thou smite, O sword of the Lord? how long will it be ere thou art quiet? return into thy sheath, rest, and be removed. 7 How shall it be quiet, whereas the Lord has given it a commission against Ascalon, and against the regions on the sea-coast, to awake against the remaining countries! 7 CONCERNING IDUMEA, thus saith the Lord; There is no longer wisdom in Thaeman, counsel has perished from the wise ones, their wisdom is gone, 8 their place has been deceived. Dig deep for a dwelling, ye that inhabit Daedam, for he has wrought grievously: I brought trouble upon him in the time at which I visited him. 9 For grape-gatherers are come, who shall not leave thee a remnant; as thieves by night, they shall lay their hand upon thy possessions. 10 For I have stripped Esau, I have uncovered their secret places; they shall have no power to hide themselves, they have perished each by the hand of his brother, my neighbour, and it is impossible 11 for thy fatherless one to be left to live, but I shall live, and the widows trust in me. 12 For thus saith the Lord; They who were not appointed to drink the cup have drunk it; and thou shalt by no means be cleared: 13 for by myself I have sworn, saith the Lord, that thou shalt be in the midst of her an impassable land, and a reproach, and a curse; and all her cities shall be desert for ever. 14 I have heard a report from the Lord, and he has sent messengers to the nations, saying, Assemble yourselves, and come against her; rise ye up to war. 15 I have made thee small among the nations, utterly contemptible among men. 16 Thine insolence has risen up against thee, the fierceness of thine heart has burst the holes of the rocks, it has seized upon the strength of a lofty hill; for as an eagle he set his nest on high: thence will I bring thee down. 17 And Idumea shall be a desert: every one that passes by shall hiss at it. 18 As Sodom was overthrown and Gomorrha and they that sojourned in her, saith the Lord Almighty, no man shall dwell there, nor shall any son of man inhabit there. 19 Behold, he shall come up as a lion out of the midst of Jordan to the place of Ætham: for I will speedily drive them from it, and do ye set the young men against her: for who is like me? and who will withstand me? and who is this shepherd, who shall confront me? 20 Therefore hear ye the counsel of the Lord, which he has framed against Idumea; and his device, which he has devised against the inhabitants of Thaeman: surely the least of the sheep shall be swept off; surely their dwelling shall be made desolate for them. 21 For at the sound of their fall the earth was scared, and the cry of the sea was not heard. 22 Behold, he shall look upon her as an eagle, and spread forth his wings over her strongholds; and the heart of the mighty men of Idumea shall be in that day as the heart of a woman in her pangs. ᾿Επὶ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους. - (Μασ. ΜΖ΄ 1-7) ΤΑΔΕ λέγει Κύριος· 2 ἰδοὺ ὕδατα ἀναβαίνει ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ ἔσται εἰς χειμάρρουν κατακλύζοντα καὶ κατακλύσει γῆν καὶ τὸ πλήρωμα αὐτῆς, πόλιν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν αὐτῇ· καὶ κεκράξονται οἱ ἄνθρωποι, καὶ ἀλαλάξουσιν ἅπαντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν. 3 ἀπὸ φωνῆς ὁρμῆς αὐτοῦ, ἀπὸ τῶν ὁπλῶν τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ σεισμοῦ τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτοῦ, ἤχου τροχῶν αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐπέστρεψαν πατέρες ἐφ’ υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἀπὸ ἐκλύσεως χειρῶν αὐτῶν 4 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἐπερχομένῃ τοῦ ἀπολέσαι πάντας τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους. καὶ ἀφανιῶ τὴν Τύρον καὶ τὴν Σιδῶνα καὶ πάντας τοὺς καταλοίπους τῆς βοηθείας αὐτῶν, ὅτι ἐξολοθρεύσει Κύριος τοὺς καταλοίπους τῶν νήσων. 5 ἥκει φαλάκρωμα ἐπὶ Γάζαν, ἀπερρίφη ᾿Ασκάλων καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι ᾿Ενακίμ. 6 ἕως τίνος κόψεις, ἡ μάχαιρα τοῦ Κυρίου; ἕως τίνος οὐχ ἡσυχάσεις; ἀποκατάστηθι εἰς τὸν κολεόν σου, ἀνάπαυσαι καὶ ἐπάρθητι. 7 πῶς ἡσυχάσει; καὶ Κύριος ἐνετείλατο αὐτῇ ἐπὶ τὴν ᾿Ασκάλωνα καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς παραθαλασσίους, ἐπὶ τὰς καταλοίπους, ἐπεγερθῆναι. Τῇ ᾿Ιδουμαίᾳ (Μασ. ΜΘ´, 7–22 ). - Τάδε λέγει Κύριος· οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι σοφία ἐν Θαιμάν, ἀπώλετο βουλὴ ἐκ συνετῶν, ᾤχετο σοφία αὐτῶν, 8 ἠπατήθη ὁ τόπος αὐτῶν. βαθύνατε εἰς κάθισιν οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Δαιδάν, ὅτι δύσκολα ἐποίησεν· ἤγαγον ἐπ’ αὐτὸν ἐν χρόνῳ, ᾧ ἐπεσκεψάμην ἐπ’ αὐτόν. 9 ὅτι τρυγηταὶ ἦλθόν σοι, οἳ οὐ καταλείψουσί σοι κατάλειμμα· ὡς κλέπται ἐν νυκτὶ ἐπιθήσουσι χεῖρα αὐτῶν. 10 ὅτι ἐγὼ κατέσυρα τὸν ῾Ησαῦ, ἀνεκάλυψα τά κρυπτὰ αὐτῶν, κρυβῆναι οὐ μὴ δύνωνται· ὤλοντο διά χεῖρα ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ γείτονος αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν 11 ὑπολείπεσθαι ὀρφανόν σου, ἵνα ζήσητε· καὶ ἐγὼ ζήσομαι, καὶ αἱ χῆραι ἐπ’ ἐμὲ πεποίθασιν. 12 ὅτι τάδε εἶπε Κύριος· οἷς οὐκ ἦν νόμος πιεῖν τὸ ποτήριον, ἔπιον· καὶ σὺ ἀθῳωμένη οὐ μὴ ἀθῳωθῇς, ὅτι πίνων πίεσαι· 13 ὅτι κατ’ ἐμαυτοῦ ὤμοσα, λέγει Κύριος, ὅτι εἰς ἄβατον καὶ εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν καὶ εἰς κατάρασιν ἔσῃ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς, καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ πόλεις αὐτῆς ἔσονται ἔρημοι εἰς αἰῶνα. 14 ἀκοὴν ἤκουσα παρὰ Κυρίου, καὶ ἀγγέλους εἰς ἔθνη ἀπέστειλε· συνάχθητε καὶ παραγένεσθε εἰς αὐτήν, ἀνάστητε εἰς πόλεμον. 15 μικρὸν ἔδωκά σε ἐν ἔθνεσιν, εὐκαταφρόνητον ἐν ἀνθρώποις. 16 ἡ παιγνία σου ἐνεχείρησέ σοι, ἰταμία καρδίας σου κατέλυσε τρυμαλιὰς πετρῶν, συνέλαβεν ἰσχὺν βουνοῦ ὑψηλοῦ· ὅτι ὕψωσεν ὥσπερ ἀετὸς νοσσιὰν αὐτοῦ, ἐκεῖθεν καθελῶ σε· 17 καὶ ἔσται ἡ ᾿Ιδουμαία εἰς ἄβατον, πᾶς ὁ παραπορευόμενος ἐπ’ αὐτὴν συριεῖ. 18 ὥσπερ κατεστράφη Σόδομα καὶ Γόμορρα καὶ αἱ πάροικοι αὐτῆς, εἶπε Κύριος παντοκράτωρ, οὐ μὴ καθίσει ἐκεῖ ἄνθρωπος, καὶ οὐ μὴ κατοικήσει ἐκεῖ υἱὸς ἀνθρώπου. 19 ἰδοὺ ὥσπερ λέων ἀναβήσεται ἐκ μέσου τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου εἰς τόπον Αἰθάμ, ὅτι ταχὺ ἐκδιώξω αὐτοὺς ἀπ’ αὐτῆς· καὶ τοὺς νεανίσκους ἐπ’ αὐτὴν ἐπιστήσατε, ὅτι τίς ὥσπερ ἐγώ; καὶ τίς ἀντιστήσεταί μοι; καὶ τίς οὗτος ποιμήν, ὃς στήσεται κατὰ πρόσωπόν μου; 20 διὰ τοῦτο ἀκούσατε βουλὴν Κυρίου, ἣν ἐβουλεύσατο ἐπὶ τὴν ᾿Ιδουμαίαν, καὶ λογισμὸν αὐτοῦ, ὃν ἐλογίσατο ἐπὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Θαιμάν· ἐὰν μὴ συμψηθῶσι τὰ ἐλάχιστα τῶν προβάτων, ἐὰν μὴ ἀβατωθῇ ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς κατάλυσις αὐτῶν· 21 ὅτι ἀπὸ φωνῆς πτώσεως αὐτῶν ἐφοβήθη ἡ γῆ, καὶ κραυγή σου ἐν θαλάσσῃ ἠκούσθη. 22 ἰδοὺ ὥσπερ ἀετὸς ὄψεται καὶ ἐκτενεῖ τὰς πτέρυγας ἐπ’ ὀχυρώματα αὐτῆς· καὶ ἔσται ἡ καρδία τῶν ἰσχυρῶν τῆς ᾿Ιδουμαίας ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὡς καρδία γυναικὸς ὠδινούσης.
