1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Therefore prophesy, son of man, set thy face steadfastly toward Jerusalem, and look toward their holy places, and thou shalt prophesy against the land of Israel, 3 and thou shalt say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I am against thee, and I will draw forth my sword out of its sheath, and I will destroy out of thee the transgressor and unrighteous. 4 Because I will destroy out of thee the unrighteous and the transgressor, [therefore] so shall my sword come forth out of its sheath against all flesh from the south to the north: 5 and all flesh shall know that I the Lord have drawn forth my sword out of its sheath: it shall not return any more. 6 And thou, son of man, groan with the breaking of thy loins; thou shalt even groan heavily in their sight. 7 And it shall come to pass, if they shall say to thee, Wherefore dost thou groan? that thou shalt say, For the report; because it comes: and every heart shall break, and all hands shall become feeble, and all flesh and every spirit shall faint, and all thighs shall be defiled with moisture: behold, it comes, saith the Lord. 8 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 Son of man, prophesy, and thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord; Say, Sword, sword, be sharpened and rage, 10 that thou mayest slay victims; be sharpened that thou mayest be bright, ready for slaughter, slay, set at nought, despise every tree. 11 And he made it ready for his hand to hold: the sword is sharpened, it is ready to put into the hand of the slayer. 12 Cry out and howl, son of man: for this [sword] is come upon my people, this [sword is come] upon all the princes of Israel: they shall be as strangers: [judgment] with the sword is come upon my people: therefore clap thine hands, for sentence has been passed: 13 and what if even the tribe be rejected? it shall not be, saith the Lord God. 14 And thou, son of man, prophesy, and clap thine hands, and take a second sword: the third sword is [the sword] of the slain, the great sword of the slain: and thou shalt strike them with amazement, lest the heart should faint 15 and the weak ones be multiplied at every gate-- they are given up to the slaughter of the sword: it is well fitted for slaughter, it is well fitted for glittering. 16 And do thou go on, sharpen thyself on the right and on the left whithersoever thy face may set itself. 17 And I also will clap my hands, and let loose my fury: the Lord have spoken [it]. 18 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 19 and thou, son of man, appoint thee two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may enter in: the two shall go forth of one country; and [there shall be] a force at the top of the way of the city, thou shalt set [it] at the top of the way, 20 that the sword may enter in upon Rabbath of the children of Ammon, and upon Judea, and upon Jerusalem in the midst thereof. 21 For the king of Babylon shall stand on the old way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination, to make bright the arrow, and to enquire of the graven images, and to examine [the victims]. 22 On his right was the divination against Jerusalem, to cast a mound, to open the mouth in shouting, to lift up the voice with crying, to cast a mound against her gates, to cast up a heap, and to build forts. 23 And he was to them as one using divination before them, and he himself recounting his iniquities, that they might be borne in mind. 24 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Because ye have caused your iniquities to be remembered, in the discovery of your wickedness, so that your sins should be seen, in all your wickedness and in your [evil] practices; because ye have caused remembrance [of them], in these shall ye be taken. 25 And thou profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day, [even] and end, is come in a season of iniquity, thus saith the Lord; 26 Thou hast taken off the mitre and put on the crown, it shall not have such [another] after it: thou hast abased that which was high, and exalted that which was low. 27 Injustice, injustice, injustice, will I make it: woe to it: such shall it be until he comes to whom it belongs; and I will deliver [it] to him. 28 And thou, son of man, prophesy, and thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord, concerning the children of Ammon, and concerning their reproach; and thou shalt say, O sword, sword, drawn for slaughter, and drawn for destruction, awake, that thou mayest gleam. 29 While thou art seeing vain [visions], and while thou art prophesying falsehoods, to bring thyself upon the necks of ungodly transgressors, the day is come, [even] an end, in a season of iniquity. 30 Turn, rest not in this place wherein thou wert born: in thine own land will I judge thee. 31 And I will pour out my wrath upon thee, I will blow upon thee with the fire of my wrath, and I will deliver thee into the hands of barbarians skilled in working destruction. 32 Thou shalt be fuel for fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of thy land; there shall be no remembrance at all of thee: for I the Lord have spoken [it]. ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 2 διὰ τοῦτο προφήτευσον, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, καὶ στήρισον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἐπίβλεψον ἐπὶ τὰ ἅγια αὐτῶν καὶ προφητεύσεις ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ 3 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὴν γῆν τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ πρὸς σὲ καὶ ἐκσπάσω τὸ ἐγχειρίδιόν μου ἐκ τοῦ κολεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσω ἐκ σοῦ ἄνομον καὶ ἄδικον· 4 ἀνθ’ ὧν ἐξολοθρεύσω ἐκ σοῦ ἄδικον καὶ ἄνομον, οὕτως ἐξελεύσεται τὸ ἐγχειρίδιόν μου ἐκ τοῦ κολεοῦ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν σάρκα ἀπὸ ἀπηλιώτου ἕως βορρᾶ· 5 καὶ ἐπιγνώσεται πᾶσα σὰρξ διότι ἐγὼ Κύριος ἐξέσπασα τὸ ἐγχειρίδιόν μου ἐκ τοῦ κολεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἀποστρέψει οὐκέτι. 6 καὶ σὺ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, καταστέναξον ἐν συντριβῇ ὀσφύος σου καὶ ἐν ὀδύναις στενάξεις κατ’ ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῶν. 7 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν εἴπωσι πρὸς σέ· ἕνεκα τίνος σὺ στενάζεις; καὶ ἐρεῖς· ἐπὶ τῇ ἀγγελίᾳ, διότι ἔρχεται, καὶ θραυσθήσεται πᾶσα καρδία, καὶ πᾶσαι χεῖρες παραλυθήσονται, καὶ ἐκψύξει πᾶσα σὰρξ καὶ πᾶν πνεῦμα, καὶ πάντες μηροὶ μολυνθήσονται ὑγρασίᾳ· ἰδοὺ ἔρχεται καὶ ἔσται λέγει Κύριος. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με, λέγων· 9 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, προφήτευσον καὶ ἐρεῖς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· εἰπόν· ῥομφαία ρομφαία, ὀξύνου καὶ θυμώθητι, 10 ὅπως σφάξῃς σφάγια, ὀξύνου ὅπως γένῃ εἰς στίλβωσιν, ἑτοίμη εἰς παράλυσιν, σφάζε, ἐξουδένει, ἀπωθοῦ πᾶν ξύλον. 11 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὴν ἑτοίμην τοῦ κρατεῖν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ· ἐξηκονήθη ἡ ρομφαία, ἐστὶν ἑτοίμη τοῦ δοῦναι αὐτὴν εἰς χεῖρα ἀποκεντοῦντος. 12 ἀνάκραγε καὶ ὀλόλυξον, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, ὅτι αὐτὴ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ λαῷ μου, αὐτὴ ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἀφηγουμένοις τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ· παροικήσουσιν ἐπὶ ρομφαίᾳ, ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ λαῷ μου. διὰ τοῦτο κρότησον ἐπὶ τὴν χεῖρά σου, 13 ὅτι δεδικαίωται· καὶ τί εἰ καὶ φυλὴ ἀπώσθη; οὐκ ἔσται, λέγει Κύριος Κύριος. 14 καὶ σύ, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, προφήτευσον καὶ κρότησον χεῖρα ἐπὶ χεῖρα καὶ διπλασίασον ρομφαίαν· ἡ τρίτη ρομφαία τραυματιῶν ἐστι, ρομφαία τραυματιῶν ἡ μεγάλη καὶ ἐκστήσει αὐτούς, 15 ὅπως θραυσθῇ ἡ καρδία καὶ πληθυνθῶσιν οἱ ἀσθενοῦντες ἐπὶ πᾶσαν πύλην αὐτῶν· παραδέδονται εἰς σφάγια ρομφαίας, εὖ γέγονεν εἰς σφαγήν, εὖ γέγονεν εἰς στίλβωσιν. 16 καὶ διαπορεύου, ὀξύνου, ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων, οὗ ἂν τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἐξεγείρηται. 17 καὶ ἐγὼ δὲ κροτήσω χεῖρά μου πρὸς χεῖρά μου καὶ ἀναφήσω τόν θυμόν μου· ἐγὼ Κύριος λελάληκα. 18 Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 19 καὶ σὺ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, διάταξον σεαυτῷ δύο ὁδοὺς 20 τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν ρομφαίαν βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος· ἐκ χώρας μιᾶς ἐξελεύσονται αἱ δύο, καὶ χεὶρ ἐν ἀρχῇ ὁδοῦ πόλεως, ἐπ’ ἀρχῆς ὁδοῦ διατάξεις τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν ρομφαίαν ἐπὶ Ῥαββὰθ υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν ᾿Ιουδαίαν καὶ ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς. 21 διότι στήσεται βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐπὶ τὴν ἀρχαίαν ὁδόν, ἐπ’ ἀρχῆς τῶν δύο ὁδῶν, τοῦ μαντεύσασθαι μαντείαν, τοῦ ἀναβράσαι ράβδον καὶ ἐπερωτῆσαι ἐν τοῖς γλυπτοῖς καὶ κατασκοπήσασθαι ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ. 22 ἐγένετο τὸ μαντεῖον ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ τοῦ βαλεῖν χάρακα, τοῦ διανοῖξαι στόμα ἐν βοῇ, ὑψῶσαι φωνὴν μετὰ κραυγῆς, τοῦ βαλεῖν χάρακα ἐπὶ τὰς πύλας αὐτῆς καὶ βαλεῖν χῶμα καὶ οἰκοδομῆσαι βελοστάσεις. 23 καὶ αὐτὸς αὐτοῖς ὡς μαντευόμενος μαντείαν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν καὶ αὐτὸς ἀναμιμνήσκων ἀδικίας αὐτοῦ μνησθῆναι. 24 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἀνθ’ ὧν ἀνεμνήσατε τὰς ἀδικίας ὑμῶν, ἐν τῷ ἀποκαλυφθῆναι τὰς ἀσεβείας ὑμῶν, τοῦ ὁραθῆναι ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ἀσεβείαις ὑμῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐπιτηδεύμασιν ὑμῶν, ἀνθ’ ἀνεμνήσατε, ἐν τούτοις ἁλώσεσθε. 25 καὶ σύ, βέβηλε, ἄνομε, ἀφηγούμενε τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, οὗ ἥκει ἡ ἡμέρα, ἐν καιρῷ ἀδικίας πέρας, 26 τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἀφείλου τὴν κίδαριν καὶ ἐπέθου τὸν στέφανον· αὕτη οὐ τοιαύτη ἔσται· ἐταπείνωσας τὸ ὑψηλὸν καὶ ὕψωσας τὸ ταπεινόν. 27 ἀδικίαν ἀδικίαν θήσομαι αὐτήν, οὐδ’ αὕτη τοιαύτη ἔσται, ἕως οὗ ἔλθῃ ᾧ καθήκει, καὶ παραδώσω αὐτῷ. - 28 Καὶ σὺ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, προφήτευσον, καὶ ἐρεῖς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ πρὸς τὸν ὀνειδισμὸν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐρεῖς· ρομφαία ρομφαία ἐσπασμένη εἰς σφάγια καὶ ἐσπασμένη εἰς συντέλειαν, ἐγείρου ὅπως στίλβῃς 29 ἐν τῇ ὁράσει σου τῇ ματαίᾳ καὶ ἐν τῷ μαντεύεσθαί σε ψευδῆ, τοῦ παραδοῦναί σε ἐπὶ τραχήλους τραυματιῶν ἀνόμων, ὧν ἥκει ἡ ἡμέρα, ἐν καιρῷ ἀδικίας πέρας. 30 ἀπόστρεφε, μὴ καταλύσῃς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ, ᾧ γεγέννησαι· ἐν τῇ γῇ τῇ ἰδίᾳ σου κρινῶ σε 31 καὶ ἐκχεῶ ἐπὶ σέ ὀργήν μου, ἐν πυρὶ ὀργῆς μου ἐμφυσήσω ἐπὶ σέ καὶ παραδώσω σε εἰς χεῖρας ἀνδρῶν βαρβάρων τεκταινόντων διαφθοράν. 32 ἐν πυρὶ ἔσῃ κατάβρωμα, τὸ αἷμά σου ἔσται ἐν μέσῳ τῆς γῆς σου· οὐ μὴ γένηταί σου μνεία, διότι ἐγὼ Κύριος λελάληκα.
