1 Moreover the Spirit took me up, and brought me to the front gate of the house of the Lord, that looks eastward: and behold at the entrance of the gate were about five and twenty men; and I saw in the midst of them Jechonias the son of Ezer, and Phaltias the son of Banaeas, the leaders of the people. 2 And the Lord said to me, Son of man, these are the men that devise vanities, and take evil counsel in this city: 3 who say, Have not the houses been newly built? This is the caldron, and we are the flesh. 4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, son of man. 5 And the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me, and said to me, say; Thus saith the Lord; Thus have ye said, O house of Israel: and I know the devices of your spirit. 6 Ye have multiplied your dead in this city, and ye have filled your ways with slain men. 7 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Your dead whom ye have smitten in the midst of it, these are the flesh, and [city] this is the caldron: but I will bring you forth out of the midst of it. 8 Ye fear the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith the Lord. 9 And I will bring you forth out of the midst of it, and will deliver you into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you. 10 Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you on the mountains of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. [11 This [city] shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof; I will judge you in the border of Israel; 12 and ye shall know that I am Jehovah. -] 13 And it came to pass, while I was prophesying, that Phaltias the son of Banaeas died. And I fell upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Alas, alas, O Lord! wilt thou utterly destroy the remnant of Israel? 14 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 15 Son of man, thy brethren, and the men of thy captivity, and all the house of Israel are come to the full, to whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem said, Keep ye far away from the Lord: the land is given to us for an inheritance. 16 Therefore say thou, Thus saith the Lord; I will cast them off among the nations, and will disperse them into every land, yet will I be to them for a little sanctuary in the countries which they shall enter. 17 Therefore say thou, Thus saith the Lord; I will also take them from the heathen, and gather them out of the lands wherein I have scattered them, and will give them the land of Israel. 18 And they shall enter in there, and shall remove all the abominations of it, and all its iniquities from it. 19 And I will give them another heart, and will put a new spirit within them; and will extract the heart of stone from their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh: 20 that they may walk in my commandments, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be to me a people, and I will be to them a God. 21 And as for the heart [set upon] their abominations and their iniquities, as their heart went [after them], I have recompensed their ways on their heads, saith the Lord. 22 Then the cherubs lifted up their wings, and the wheels beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above. 23 And the glory of the Lord went up from the midst of the city, and stood on the mountain which was in front of the city. 24 And the Spirit took me up, and brought me to the land of the Chaldeans, to the captivity, in a vision by the Spirit of God: and I went up after the vision which I saw. 25 And I spoke to the captivity all the words of the Lord which he had shewed me. ΚΑΙ ἀνέλαβέ με πνεῦμα καὶ ἤγαγέ με ἐπὶ τὴν πύλην τοῦ οἴκου Κυρίου τὴν κατέναντι τὴν βλέπουσαν κατὰ ἀνατολάς· καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ τῶν προθύρων τῆς πύλης ὡς εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἄνδρες, καὶ εἶδον ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν τὸν ᾿Ιεζονίαν τὸν τοῦ ῎Εζερ καὶ Φαλτίαν τὸν τοῦ Βαναίου, τοὺς ἀφηγουμένους τοῦ λαοῦ. 2 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, οὗτοι οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ λογιζόμενοι μάταια καὶ βουλευόμενοι βουλὴν πονηρὰν ἐν τῇ πόλει ταύτῃ, 3 οἱ λέγοντες· οὐχὶ προσφάτως ᾠκοδόμηνται αἱ οἰκίαι; αὕτη ἐστὶν ὁ λέβης, ἡμεῖς δέ τὰ κρέα. 4 διὰ τοῦτο προφήτευσον ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς, προφήτευσον, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου. 5 καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ πνεῦμα Κυρίου καὶ εἶπε πρός με· λέγε· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· οὕτως εἴπατε, οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ τὰ διαβούλια τοῦ πνεύματος ὑμῶν ἐγὼ ἐπίσταμαι. 6 ἐπληθύνατε νεκροὺς ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ πόλει ταύτῃ καὶ ἐνεπλήσατε τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῆς τραυματιῶν. 7 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει Κύριος· τοὺς νεκροὺς ὑμῶν, οὓς ἐπατάξατε ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς, οὗτοί εἰσι τὰ κρέα, αὐτὴ δὲ ὁ λέβης ἐστί, καὶ ὑμᾶς ἐξάξω ἐκ μέσου αὐτῆς. 8 ῥομφαίαν φοβεῖσθε, καὶ ρομφαίαν ἐπάξω ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς, λέγει Κύριος· 9 καὶ ἐξάξω ὑμᾶς ἐκ μέσου αὐτῆς καὶ παραδώσω ὑμᾶς εἰς χεῖρας ἀλλοτρίων καὶ ποιήσω ἐν ὑμῖν κρίματα. 10 ἐν ρομφαίᾳ πεσεῖσθε, ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ κρινῶ ὑμᾶς· καὶ ἐπιγνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐγὼ Κύριος. 11 αὐτὴ ὑμῖν οὐκ ἔσται εἰς λέβητα, καὶ ὑμεῖς οὐ μὴ γένησθε ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς εἰς κρέα· ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ κρινῶ ὑμᾶς, 12 καὶ ἐπιγνώσεσθε διότι ἐγὼ Κύριος. - 13 Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ προφητεύειν με καὶ Φαλτίας ὁ τοῦ Βαναίου ἀπέθανε, καὶ πίπτω ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου καὶ ἀνεβόησα φωνῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ εἶπα· οἴμοι οἴμοι, Κύριε, εἰς συντέλειαν ποιεῖς σὺ τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ; 14 Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 15 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, οἱ ἀδελφοί σου καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας σου καὶ πᾶς ὁ οἶκος τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ συντετέλεσται, οἷς εἶπαν αὐτοῖς οἱ κατοικοῦντες ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· μακρὰν ἀπέχετε ἀπὸ τοῦ Κυρίου, ἡμῖν δέδοται ἡ γῆ εἰς κληρονομίαν. 16 διὰ τοῦτον εἰπόν· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ὅτι ἀπώσομαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰ ἔθνη καὶ διασκορπιῶ αὐτοὺς εἰς πᾶσαν γῆν, καὶ ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς εἰς ἁγίασμα μικρὸν ἐν ταῖς χώραις, οὗ ἐὰν εἰσέλθωσιν ἐκεῖ. 17 διὰ τοῦτο εἶπόν· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· καὶ εἰσδέξομαι αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῶν ἐθνῶν καὶ συνάξω αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῶν χωρῶν, οὗ διέσπειρα αὐτοὺς ἐν αὐταῖς, καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς τὴν γῆν τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 18 καὶ εἰσελεύσονται ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξαροῦσι πάντα τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῆς καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας αὐτῆς ἐξ αὐτῆς. 19 καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς καρδίαν ἑτέραν καὶ πνεῦμα καινὸν δώσω ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐκσπάσω τὴν καρδίαν τὴν λιθίνην ἐκ τῆς σαρκὸς αὐτῶν καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς καρδίαν σαρκίνην· 20 ὅπως ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασί μου πορεύωνται καὶ τὰ δικαιώματά μου φυλάσσωνται καὶ ποιῶσιν αὐτά· καὶ ἔσονταί μοι εἰς λαὸν καὶ ἐγὼ ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς εἰς Θεόν. 21 καὶ εἰς τὴν καρδίαν τῶν βδελυγμάτων αὐτῶν καὶ τῶν ἀνομιῶν αὐτῶν, ὡς ἡ καρδία αὐτῶν ἐπορεύετο, τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῶν εἰς τὰς κεφαλάς αὐτῶν δέδωκα, λέγει Κύριος. - 22 Καὶ ἐξῇραν τὰ Χερουβὶμ τὰς πτέρυγας αὐτῶν, καὶ οἱ τροχοὶ ἐχόμενοι αὐτῶν, καὶ ἡ δόξα Θεοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὰ ὑπεράνω αὐτῶν. 23 καὶ ἀνέβη ἡ δόξα Κυρίου ἐκ μέσης τῆς πόλεως καὶ ἔστη ἐπὶ τοῦ ὄρους, ὃ ἦν ἀπέναντι τῆς πόλεως. 24 καὶ ἀνέλαβέ με πνεῦμα καὶ ἤγαγέ με εἰς γῆς Χαλδαίων εἰς τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν ἐν ὁράσει ἐν πνεύματι Θεοῦ. καὶ ἀνέβην ἀπὸ τῆς ὁράσεως, ἧς εἶδον. 25 καὶ ἐλάλησα πρὸς τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ Κυρίου, οὓς ἔδειξέ μοι.
