1 2 Hear ye the word of the Lord, all Judea. 3 Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Correct your ways and your devices, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4 Trust not in yourselves with lying words, for they shall not profit you at all, saying, It is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord. 5 For if ye thoroughly correct your ways and your practices, and do indeed execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; 6 and oppress not the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, and go not after strange gods to your hurt: 7 then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land which I gave to your fathers of old and for ever. 8 But whereas ye have trusted in lying words, whereby ye shall not be profited; 9 and ye murder, and commit adultery, and steal, and swear falsely, and burn incense to Baal, and are gone after strange gods whom ye know not, 10 so that it is evil with you; yet have ye come, and stood before me in the house, whereon my name is called, and ye have said, We have refrained from doing all these abominations.11 Is my house, whereon my name is called, a den of robbers in your eyes? And, behold, I have seen [it], saith the Lord. 12 For go ye to my place with is in Selo, where I caused my name to dwell before, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel. 13 And now, because ye have done all these deeds, and I spoke to you, but ye hearkened not to me; and I called you, but ye answered not; 14 therefore I also will do to the house whereon my name is called, wherein ye trust, and to the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did to Selo. 15 And I will cast you out of my sight, as I cast away your brethren, all the seed of Ephraim. 16 Therefore pray not thou for this people, and intercede not for them to be pitied, yea, pray not, and approach me not for them: for I will not hearken [unto thee]. 17 Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Juda, and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 Their children gather wood, and their fathers kindle a fire, and their women knead dough, to make cakes to the host of heaven; and they have poured out drink-offerings to strange gods, that they might provoke me to anger. 19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not [provoke] themselves, that their faces may be ashamed? 20 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, my anger and wrath shall be poured out upon this place, and upon the men, and upon the cattle, and upon every tree of their field, and upon the fruits of the land; and it shall burn, and not be quenched. 21 Thus saith the Lord, Gather your whole-burnt-offerings with your meat-offerings, and eat flesh. 22 For I spoke not to your fathers, and commanded them not in the day wherein I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, concerning whole-burnt-offerings and sacrifice: 23 but I commanded them this thing, saying, Hear ye my voice, and I will be to you a God, and ye shall be to me a people: and walk ye in all my ways which I shall command you, that it may be well with you. 24 But they hearkened not to me, and their ear gave no heed, but they walked in the imaginations of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward; 25 from the day that their fathers went forth out of the land of Egypt, even until this day. And I sent to you all my servants, the prophets, by day and early in the morning: yea, I sent [them], 26 but they hearkened not to me, and their ear gave no heed; and they made their neck harder than their fathers. 27 Therefore thou shalt speak this word to them; 28 This is the nation which has not hearkened to the voice of the Lord, nor received correction: truth has failed from their mouth. 29 Cut off thine hair, and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on thy lips; for the Lord has reprobated and rejected the generation that does these things. 30 For the children of Juda have wrought evil before me, saith the Lord; they have set their abominations in the house on which my name is called, to defile it. 31 And they have built the altar of Tapheth, which is in the valley of the son of Ennom, to burn their sons and their daughters with fire; which I did not command them [to do], neither did I design it in my heart. 32 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when they shall no more say, The altar of Tapheth, and the valley of the son of Ennom, but, The valley of the slain; and they shall bury in Tapheth, for want of room. 33 And the dead bodies of this people shall be for food to the birds of the sky, and to the wild beasts of the earth; and there shall be none to drive [them] away. 34 And I will destroy out of the cities of Juda, and the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of them that make merry, and the voice of them that rejoice, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride; for the whole land shall become a desolation. ΑΚΟΥΣΑΤΕ λόγον Κυρίου πᾶσα ᾿Ιουδαία. 3 τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ· διορθώσατε τὰς ὁδοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν, καὶ κατοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ. 4 μὴ πεποίθατε ἐφ’ ἑαυτοῖς ἐπὶ λόγοις ψευδέσιν, ὅτι τὸ παράπαν οὐκ ὠφελήσουσιν ὑμᾶς λέγοντες· ναὸς Κυρίου, ναὸς Κυρίου ἐστίν. 5 ὅτι ἐὰν διορθοῦντες διορθώσητε τὰς ὁδοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ ποιοῦντες ποιήσητε κρίσιν ἀνὰ μέσον ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ 6 καὶ προσήλυτον καὶ ὀρφανὸν καὶ χήραν μὴ καταδυναστεύσητε καὶ αἷμα ἀθῷον μὴ ἐκχέητε ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων μὴ πορεύησθε εἰς κακὸν ὑμῖν, 7 καὶ κατοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ, ἐν γῇ, ᾗ ἔδωκα τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν ἐξ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως αἰῶνος. 8 εἰ δὲ ὑμεῖς πεποίθατε ἐπὶ λόγοις ψευδέσιν, ὅθεν οὐκ ὠφεληθήσεσθε, 9 καὶ φονεύετε καὶ μοιχᾶσθε καὶ κλέπτετε καὶ ὀμνύετε ἐπ’ ἀδίκῳ καὶ θυμιᾶτε τῇ Βάαλ καὶ ἐπορεύεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων, ὧν οὐκ οἴδατε, τοῦ κακῶς εἶναι ὑμῖν 10 καὶ ἤλθετε καὶ ἔστητε ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ, οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ’ αὐτῷ, καὶ εἴπατε· ἀπεσχήμεθα τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν πάντα τὰ βδελύγματα ταῦτα, 11 μὴ σπήλαιον λῃστῶν ὁ οἶκός μου, οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ’ αὐτῷ ἐκεῖ, ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν; καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἑώρακα, λέγει Κύριος, 12 ὅτι πορεύθητε εἰς τὸν τόπον μου τὸν ἐν Σηλώ, οὗ κατεσκήνωσα τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ ἔμπροσθεν, καὶ ἴδετε ἃ ἐποίησα αὐτῷ ἀπὸ προσώπου κακίας λαοῦ μου ᾿Ισραήλ. 13 καὶ νῦν ἀνθ’ ὧν ἐποιήσατε πάντα τὰ ἔργα ταῦτα, καὶ ἐλάλησα πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατέ μου, καὶ ἐκάλεσα ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθητε, 14 τοίνυν κἀγὼ ποιήσω τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ, ᾧ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ’ αὐτῷ, ἐφ’ ᾧ ὑμεῖς πεποίθατε ἐπ’ αὐτῷ, καὶ τῷ τόπῳ, ᾧ ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν, καθὼς ἐποίησα τῇ Σηλώ. 15 καὶ ἀπορρίψω ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ προσώπου μου, καθὼς ἀπέρριψα τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν, πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα ᾿Εφραίμ. 16 καὶ σύ μὴ προσεύχου περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου καὶ μὴ ἀξιοῦ τοῦ ἐλεηθῆναι αὐτοὺς καὶ μὴ εὔχου καὶ μὴ προσέλθῃς μοι περὶ αὐτῶν, ὅτι οὐκ εἰσακούσομαι. 17 ἦ οὐχ ὁρᾷς τί αὐτοὶ ποιοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ; 18 οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν συλλέγουσι ξύλα, καὶ οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν καίουσι πῦρ, καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες αὐτῶν τρίβουσι σταῖς τοῦ ποιῆσαι χαυῶνας τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ ἔσπεισαν σπονδὰς θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις, ἵνα παροργίσωσί με. 19 μὴ ἐμὲ αὐτοὶ παροργίζουσι; λέγει Κύριος· οὐχὶ ἑαυτούς, ὅπως καταισχυνθῇ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν; 20 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ὀργὴ καὶ θυμός μου χεῖται ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀνθρώπους καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ κτήνη καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶν ξύλον τοῦ ἀγροῦ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ γεννήματα τῆς γῆς, καὶ καυθήσεται καὶ οὐ σβεσθήσεται. 21 τάδε λέγει Κύριος· τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα ὑμῶν συναγάγετε μετὰ τῶν θυσιῶν ὑμῶν καὶ φάγετε κρέα. 22 ὅτι οὐκ ἐλάλησα πρὸς τοὺς πατέρας ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ, ᾗ ἀνήγαγον αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, περὶ ὁλοκαυτωμάτων καὶ θυσίας· 23 ἀλλ’ ἢ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς, λέγων· ἀκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς μου, καὶ ἔσομαι ὑμῖν εἰς Θεόν, καὶ ὑμεῖς ἔσεσθέ μοι εἰς λαόν· καὶ πορεύεσθε ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ὁδοῖς μου, αἷς ἂν ἐντείλωμαι ὑμῖν, ὅπως ἂν εὖ ᾖ ὑμῖν. 24 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου, καὶ οὐ προσέσχε τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν, ἀλλ’ ἐπορεύθησαν ἐν τοῖς ἐνθυμήμασι τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν τῆς κακῆς καὶ ἐγενήθησαν εἰς τὰ ὄπισθεν καὶ οὐκ εἰς τὰ ἔμπροσθεν. 25 ἀφ’ ἧς ἡμέρας ἐξήλθοσαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης, καὶ ἐξαπέστειλα πρὸς ὑμᾶς πάντας τοὺς δούλους μου, τοὺς προφήτας, ἡμέρας καὶ ὄρθρου, καὶ ἀπέστειλα, 26 καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσάν μου, καὶ οὐ προσέσχε τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν ὑπὲρ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν. 28 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς τοῦτον τὸν λόγον· τοῦτο τὸ ἔθνος, ὃ οὐκ ἤκουσε τῆς φωνῆς Κυρίου οὐδὲ ἐδέξατο παιδείαν, ἐξέλιπεν ἡ πίστις ἐκ στόματος αὐτῶν. - 29 Κεῖραι τὴν κεφαλήν σου καὶ ἀπόρριπτε καὶ ἀνάλαβε ἐπὶ χειλέων θρῆνον, ὅτι ἀπεδοκίμασε Κύριος καὶ ἀπώσατο τὴν γενεὰν τὴν ποιοῦσαν ταῦτα. 30 ὅτι ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιούδα τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ, λέγει Κύριος· ἔταξαν τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ, οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ’ αὐτόν, τοῦ μιᾶναι αὐτόν· 31 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τὸν βωμὸν τοῦ Ταφέθ, ὅς ἐστιν ἐν φάραγγι υἱοῦ ᾿Εννόμ, τοῦ κατακαίειν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν ἐν πυρί, ὃ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐ διενοήθην ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ μου. 32 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται, λέγει Κύριος, καὶ οὐκ ἐροῦσιν ἔτι· Βωμὸς τοῦ Ταφὲθ καὶ φάραγξ υἱοῦ ᾿Εννόμ, ἀλλ’ ἢ Φάραγξ τῶν ἀνῃρημένων, καὶ θάψουσιν ἐν τῷ Ταφὲθ διὰ τὸ μὴ ὑπάρχειν τόπον. 33 καὶ ἔσονται οἱ νεκροὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου εἰς βρῶσιν τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς, καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἀποσοβῶν. 34 καὶ καταλύσω ἐκ πόλεων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐκ διόδων ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ φωνὴν εὐφραινομένων καὶ φωνὴν χαιρόντων, φωνὴν νυμφίου καὶ φωνὴν νύμφης, ὅτι εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἔσται πᾶσα ἡ γῆ.
