1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 And thou, son of man, wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, declare thou to her all her iniquities. 3 And thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord God: O city that sheds blood in the midst of her, so that her time should come, and that forms devices against herself, to defile herself; 4 in their blood which thou hast shed, thou hast transgressed; and in thy devices which thou hast formed, thou hast polluted thyself; and thou hast brought nigh thy days, and hast brought on the time of thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach to the Gentiles, and a mockery to all the countries, 5 to those near thee, and to those far distant from thee; and they shall mock thee, [thou that art] notoriously unclean, and abundant in iniquities. 6 Behold, the princes of the house of Israel have conspired in thee each one with his kindred, that they might shed blood. 7 In thee they have reviled father and mother; and in thee they have behaved unjustly toward the stranger: they have oppressed the orphan and widow. 8 And they have set at nought my holy things, and in thee they have profaned my sabbaths. 9 [There are] robbers in thee, to shed blood in thee; and in thee they have eaten upon the mountains: they have wrought ungodliness in the midst of thee. 10 In thee they have uncovered the father’s shame; and in thee they have humbled her that was set apart for uncleanness. 11 They have dealt unlawfully each one with his neighbor’s wife; and each one in ungodliness has defiled his daughter-in-law: and in thee they have humbled each one his sister, the daughter of his father. 12 In thee they have received gifts to shed blood; they have received in thee interest and usurious increase; and by oppression thou hast brought thy wickedness to the full, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord. 13 And if I shall smite my hand at [thine iniquities] which thou hast accomplished, which thou hast wrought, and at thy blood that has been shed in the midst of thee, 14 shall thy heart endure? shall thine hands be strong in the days which I bring upon thee? I the Lord have spoken, and will do [it]. 15 And I will scatter thee among the nations, and disperse thee in the countries, and thy uncleanness shall be removed out of thee. 16 And I will give heritages in thee in the sight of the nations, and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 17 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 18 Son of man, behold, the house of Israel are all become to me [as it were] mixed with brass, and iron, and tin, and lead; they are mixed up in the midst of the silver. 19 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have become one mixture, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. 20 As silver, and brass, and iron, and tin, and lead, are gathered into the midst of the furnace, to blow fire into it, that they may be melted: so will I take [you] in my wrath, and I will gather and melt you. 21 And I will blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof. 22 As silver is melted in the midst of a furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the Lord have poured out my wrath upon you. 23 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 24 Son of man, say to her, Thou art the land that is not rained upon, neither has rain come upon thee in the day of wrath; 25 whose princes in the midst of her are as roaring lions seizing prey, devouring souls by oppression, and taking bribes; and thy widows are multiplied in the midst of thee. 26 Her priests also have set at nought my law, and profaned my holy things: they have not distinguished between the holy and profane, nor have they distinguished between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I was profaned in the midst of them. 27 Her princes in the midst of her are as wolves ravening to shed blood, that they may get dishonest gain. 28 And her prophets that daub them shall fall, that see vanities, that prophesy falsehoods, saying, Thus saith the Lord, when the Lord has not spoken. 29 That sorely oppress the people of the land with injustice, and commit robbery; oppressing the poor and needy, and not dealing justly with the stranger. 30 And I sought from among them a man behaving uprightly, and standing before me perfectly in the time of wrath, so that I should not utterly destroy her: but I found [him] not. 31 So I have poured out my wrath upon her in the fury of mine anger, to accomplish [it]. I have recompensed their ways on their own heads, saith the Lord God. ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 2 καὶ σὺ υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, εἰ κρινεῖς τὴν πόλιν τῶν αἱμάτων; καὶ παράδειξον αὐτῇ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας αὐτῆς 3 καὶ ἐρεῖς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος Κύριος· ὦ πόλις ἐκχέουσα αἵματα ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς τοῦ ἐλθεῖν καιρὸν αὐτῆς καὶ ποιοῦσα ἐνθυμήματα καθ’ ἑαυτῆς, τοῦ μιαίνειν αὐτήν, 4 ἐν τοῖς αἵμασιν αὐτῶν, οἷς ἐξέχεας, παραπέπτωκας καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐνθυμήμασί σου, οἷς ἐποίεις, ἐμιαίνου, καὶ ἤγγισας τὰς ἡμέρας σου καὶ ἤγαγες καιρὸν ἐτῶν σου. διὰ τοῦτο δέδωκά σε εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν τοῖς ἔθνεσι, καὶ εἰς ἐμπαιγμὸν πάσαις ταῖς χώραις 5 ταῖς ἐγγιζούσαις πρὸς σὲ καὶ ταῖς μακρὰν ἀπεχούσαις ἀπὸ σοῦ, καὶ ἐμπαίξονται ἐν σοί· ἀκάθαρτος ἡ ὀνομαστὴ καὶ πολλὴ ἐν ταῖς ἀνομίαις. 6 ἰδοὺ οἱ ἀφηγούμενοι οἴκου ᾿Ισραήλ, ἕκαστος πρὸς τοὺς συγγενεῖς αὐτοῦ συνανεφύροντο ἐν σοί, ὅπως ἐκχέωσιν αἷμα· 7 πατέρα καὶ μητέρα ἐκακολόγουν ἐν σοί, καὶ πρὸς τὸν προσήλυτον ἀνεστρέφοντο ἐν ἀδικίαις ἐν σοί, ὀρφανὸν καὶ χήραν κατεδυνάστευον ἐν σοί· 8 καὶ τὰ ἅγιά μου ἐξουθένουν καὶ τὰ σάββατά μου ἐβεβήλουν ἐν σοί. 9 ἄνδρες λῃσταὶ ἦσαν ἐν σοί, ὅπως ἐκχέωσιν ἐν σοὶ αἷμα, καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων ἤσθιον ἐν σοί, ἀνόσια ἐποίουν ἐν μέσῳ σου. 10 αἰσχύνην πατρὸς ἀπεκάλυψαν ἐν σοὶ καὶ ἐν ἀκαθαρσίαις ἀποκαθημένην ἐταπείνουν ἐν σοί· 11 ἕκαστος τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἠνομοῦσαν, καὶ ἕκαστος τὴν νύμφην αὐτοῦ ἐμίαινεν ἐν ἀσεβείᾳ, καὶ ἕκαστος τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτοῦ θυγατέρα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐταπείνουν ἐν σοί. 12 δῶρα ἐλαμβάνοσαν ἐν σοί, ὅπως ἐκχέωσιν αἷμα, τόκον καὶ πλεονασμὸν ἐλαμβάνοσαν ἐν σοί· καὶ συνετελέσω συντέλειαν κακίας σου τὴν ἐν καταδυναστείᾳ, ἐμοῦ δὲ ἐπελάθου, λέγει Κύριος. 13 ἐὰν δὲ πατάξω χεῖρά μου πρὸς χεῖρά μου ἐφ’ οἷς συντετέλεσαι, οἷς ἐποίησας, καὶ ἐπὶ τοῖς αἵμασί σου τοῖς γεγενημένοις ἐν μέσῳ σου, 14 εἰ ὑποστήσεται ἡ καρδία σου; εἰ κρατήσουσιν αἱ χεῖρές σου ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις, αἷς ἐγὼ ποιῶ ἐν σοί; ἐγὼ Κύριος λελάληκα καὶ ποιήσω. 15 καὶ διασκορπιῶ σε ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι καὶ διασπερῶ σε ἐν ταῖς χώραις, καὶ ἐκλείψει ἡ ἀκαθαρσία σου ἐκ σοῦ, 16 καὶ κατακληρονομήσω ἐν σοὶ κατ’ ὀφθαλμοὺς τῶν ἐθνῶν· καὶ γνώσεσθε διότι ἐγὼ Κύριος. - 17 Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 18 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, ἰδοὺ γεγόνασί μοι ὁ οἶκος ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀναμεμειγμένοι πάντες χαλκῷ καὶ σιδήρῳ καὶ κασσιτέρῳ καὶ μολίβῳ, ἐν μέσῳ ἀργυρίου ἀναμεμειγμένος ἐστί. 19 διὰ τοῦτο εἰπόν· τάδε λέγει Κύριος Κύριος· ἀνθ’ ὧν ἐγένεσθε εἰς σύγκρασιν μίαν, διὰ τοῦτο ἐγὼ εἰσδέχομαι ὑμᾶς εἰς μέσον ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 20 καθὼς εἰσδέχεται ἄργυρος καὶ χαλκὸς καὶ σίδηρος καὶ κασσίτερος καὶ μόλιβος εἰς μέσον καμίνου τοῦ ἐκφυσῆσαι εἰς αὐτὸ πῦρ τοῦ χωνευθῆναι, οὕτως εἰσδέξομαι ἐν ὀργῇ μου καὶ συνάξω καὶ χωνεύσω ὑμᾶς 21 καὶ ἐκφυσήσω ἐφ’ ὑμᾶς ἐν πυρὶ ὀργῆς μου, καὶ χωνευθήσεσθε ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς. 22 ὃν τρόπον χωνεύεται ἀργύριον ἐν μέσῳ καμίνου, οὕτως χωνευθύσεσθε ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς· καὶ ἐπιγνώσεσθε διότι ἐγὼ Κύριος ἐξέχεα τὸν θυμόν μου ἐφ’ ὑμᾶς. - 23 Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 24 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, εἰπὸν αὐτῇ· σὺ εἶ γῆ ἡ οὐ βρεχομένη, οὐδὲ ὑετὸς ἐγένετο ἐπὶ σὲ ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ὀργῆς· 25 ἧς οἱ ἀφηγούμενοι ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς ὡς λέοντες ὠρυόμενοι ἁρπάζοντες ἁρπάγματα, ψυχὰς κατεσθίοντες ἐν δυναστείᾳ, καὶ τιμὰς λαμβάνοντες ἐν ἀδικίᾳ, καὶ αἱ χῆραί σου ἐπληθύνθησαν ἐν μέσῳ σου. 26 καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς αὐτῆς ἠθέτησαν νόμον μου καὶ ἐβεβήλουν τὰ ἅγιά μου· ἀναμέσον ἁγίου καὶ βεβήλου οὐ διέστελλον καὶ ἀναμέσον ἀκαθάρτου καὶ τοῦ καθαροῦ οὐ διέστελλον καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν σαββάτων μου παρεκάλυπτον τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐβεβηλούμην ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν. 27 οἱ ἄρχοντες αὐτῆς ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς ὡς λύκοι ἁρπάζοντες ἁρπάγματα τοῦ ἐκχέαι αἷμα, ὅπως πλεονεξίᾳ πλεονεκτῶσι. 28 καὶ οἱ προφῆται αὐτῆς ἀλείφοντες αὐτοὺς πεσοῦνται, ὁρῶντες μάταια, μαντευόμενοι ψευδῆ, λέγοντες· τάδε λέγει Κύριος, καὶ Κύριος οὐκ ἐλάλησε. 29 λαὸν τῆς γῆς ἐκπιεζοῦντες ἀδικίᾳ καὶ διαρπάζοντες ἁρπάγματα, πτωχὸν καὶ πένητα καταδυναστεύοντες καὶ πρὸς τὸν προσήλυτον οὐκ ἀναστρεφόμενοι μετὰ κρίματος. 30 καὶ ἐζήτουν ἐξ αὐτῶν ἄνδρα ἀναστρεφόμενον ὀρθῶς καὶ ἑστῶτα πρὸ προσώπου μου ὁλοσχερῶς ἐν τῷ καιρῷ τῆς γῆς τοῦ μὴ εἰς τέλος ἐξαλεῖψαι αὐτήν, καὶ οὐχ εὗρον. 31 καὶ ἐξέχεα ἐπ’ αὐτὴν θυμόν μου ἐν πυρὶ ὀργῆς μου τοῦ συντελέσαι· τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῶν εἰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν δέδωκα, λέγει Κύριος Κύριος.
