1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, on the first [day] of the month, [that] the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, because Sor has said against Jerusalem, Aha, she is crushed: the nations are destroyed: she is turned to me: she that was full is made desolate: 3 therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, I am against thee, O Sor, and I will bring up many nations against thee, as the sea comes up with its waves. 4 And they shall cast down the walls of Sor, and shall cast down thy towers: and I will scrape her dust from off her, and make her a bare rock. 5 She shall be in the midst of the sea a place for repairing nets: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord: and it shall be a spoil for the nations. 6 And her daughters [which are] in the field shall be slain with the sword, and they shall know that I am the Lord. 7 For thus saith the Lord; Behold, I [will] bring up against thee, O Sor, Nabuchodonoor king of Babylon from the north: he is a king of kings, with horses, and chariots, and horsemen, and a concourse of very many nations. 8 He shall slay thy daughters that are in the field with the sword, and shall set a watch against thee, and build forts around thee, and carry a rampart round against thee, and set up warlike works, and array his spears against thee. 9 He shall cast down with his swords thy walls and thy towers. 10 By reason of thy multitude of his horses their dust shall cover thee, and by reason of the sound of his horsemen and the wheels of his chariots thy walls shall be shaken, when he enters into thy gates, as one entering into a city from the plain. 11 With the hoofs of his horses they shall trample all thy streets: he shall slay thy people with the sword, and shall bring down to the ground the support of thy strength. 12 And he shall prey upon thy power, and plunder thy substance, and shall cast down thy walls, and break down thy pleasant houses: and he shall cast thy stones and thy timber and thy dust into the midst of thy sea. 13 And he shall destroy the multitude of thy musicians, and the sound of thy psalteries shall be heard no more. 14 And I will make thee a bare rock: thou shalt be a place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for I the Lord have spoken [it], saith the Lord. 15 For thus saith the Lord God to Sor; Shall not the isles shake at the sound of thy fall, while the wounded are groaning, while they have drawn a sword in the midst of thee? 16 And all the princes of the nations of the sea shall come down from their thrones, and shall take off their crowns from their heads, and shall take off their embroidered raiment: they shall be utterly amazed; they shall sit upon the ground, and fear their [own] destruction, and shall groan over thee. 17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and shall say to thee, How art thou destroyed from out of the sea, the renowned city, that brought her terror upon all her inhabitants. 18 And the isles shall be alarmed at the day of thy fall. 19 For thus saith the Lord God; When I shall make the city desolate, as the cities that shall not be inhabited, when I have brought the deep up upon thee, 20 and great waters shall cover thee; and I shall bring thee down to them that go down to the pit, to the people of old time, and shall cause thee to dwell in the depths of the earth, as in everlasting desolation, with them that go down to the pit, that thou mayest not be inhabited, nor stand upon the land of life; 21 I will make thee a destruction, and thou shalt be no more for ever, saith the Lord God. ΚΑΙ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ ἑνδεκάτῳ ἔτει, μιᾷ τοῦ μηνός, ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 2 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, ἀνθ’ ὧν εἶπε Σὸρ ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· εὖγε, συνετρίβη, ἀπόλωλε τὰ ἔθνη, ἐπεστράφη πρός με, ἡ πλήρης ἠρήμωται, 3 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπὶ σέ, Σόρ, καὶ ἀνάξω ἐπὶ σὲ ἔθνη πολλά, ὡς ἀναβαίνει ἡ θάλασσα τοῖς κύμασιν αὐτῆς. 4 καὶ καταβαλοῦσι τὰ τείχη Σὸρ καὶ καταβαλοῦσι τοὺς πύργους σου, καὶ λικμήσω τὸν χοῦν αὐτῆς ἀπ’ αὐτῆς καὶ δώσω αὐτὴν εἰς λεωπετρίαν. 5 ψυγμὸς σαγηνῶν ἔσται ἐν μέσῳ θαλάσσης, ὅτι ἐγὼ λελάληκα, λέγει Κύριος· καὶ ἔσται εἰς προνομὴν τοῖς ἔθνεσι. 6 καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῆς αἱ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ μαχαίρᾳ ἀναιρεθήσονται, καὶ γνώσονται ὅτι ἐγὼ Κύριος. 7 ὅτι τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ἐπὶ σέ, Σόρ, τὸν Ναβουχοδονόσορ βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος ἀπὸ τοῦ βορρᾶ (βασιλεὺς βασιλέων ἐστί) μεθ’ ἵππων καὶ ἁρμάτων καὶ ἱππέων καὶ συναγωγῆς ἐθνῶν πολλῶν σφόδρα. 8 οὗτος τὰς θυγατέρας σου τὰς ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ μαχαίρᾳ ἀνελεῖ καὶ δώσει ἐπὶ σὲ προφυλακὴν καὶ περιοικοδομήσει καὶ ποιήσει ἐπὶ σὲ κύκλῳ χάρακα καὶ περίστασιν ὅπλων καὶ τὰς λόγχας αὐτοῦ ἀπέναντί σου δώσει· 9 τὰ τείχη σου καὶ τοὺς πύργους σου καταβαλεῖ ἐν ταῖς μαχαίραις αὐτοῦ. 10 ἀπὸ τοῦ πλήθους τῶν ἵππων αὐτοῦ κατακαλύψει σε ὁ κονιορτὸς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς φωνῆς τῶν ἱππέων αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν τροχῶν τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτοῦ σεισθήσεται τὰ τείχη σου εἰσπορευομένου αὐτοῦ τὰς πύλας σου, ὡς εἰσπορευόμενος εἰς πόλιν ἐκ πεδίου. 11 ἐν ταῖς ὁπλαῖς τῶν ἵππων αὐτοῦ καταπατήσουσί σου πάσας τὰς πλατείας· τὸν λαόν σου μαχαίρᾳ ἀνελεῖ καὶ τὴν ὑπόστασιν τῆς ἰσχύος σου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν κατάξει. 12 καὶ προνομεύσει τὴν δύναμίν σου καὶ σκυλεύσει τὰ ὑπάρχοντά σου καὶ καταβαλεῖ τὰ τείχη σου καὶ τοὺς οἴκους σου τοὺς ἐπιθυμητοὺς καθελεῖ, καὶ τοὺς λίθους σου καὶ τὰ ξύλα σου καὶ τὸν χοῦν σου εἰς μέσον τῆς θαλάσσης σου ἐμβαλεῖ. 13 καὶ καταλύσει τὸ πλῆθος τῶν μουσικῶν σου, καὶ ἡ φωνὴ τῶν ψαλτηρίων σου οὐ μὴ ἀκουσθῇ ἔτι. 14 καὶ δώσω σε εἰς λεωπετρίαν, ψυγμὸς σαγηνῶν ἔσῃ, οὐ μὴ οἰκοδομηθῇς ἔτι, ὅτι ἐγὼ Κύριος ἐλάλησα, λέγει Κύριος. 15 διότι τάδε λέγει Κύριος Κύριος τῇ Σόρ· οὐκ ἀπὸ φωνῆς τῆς πτώσεώς σου ἐν τῷ στενάξαι τραυματίας, ἐν τῷ σπάσαι μάχαιραν ἐν μέσῳ σου σεισθήσονται αἱ νῆσοι; 16 καὶ καταβήσονται ἀπὸ τῶν θρόνων αὐτῶν πάντες οἱ ἄρχοντες ἐκ τῶν ἐθνῶν τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἀφελοῦνται τὰς μίτρας ἀπὸ τῶν κεφαλῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τὸν ἱματισμὸν τὸν ποικίλον αὐτῶν ἐκδύσονται. ἐκστάσει ἐκστήσονται, ἐπὶ γῆν καθεδοῦνται καὶ φοβηθήσονται τὴν ἀπώλειαν αὐτῶν καὶ στενάξουσιν ἐπὶ σέ· 17 καὶ λήψονται ἐπὶ σὲ θρῆνον καὶ ἐροῦσί σοι· πῶς κατελύθης ἐκ θαλάσσης, ἡ πόλις ἡ ἐπαινετή, ἡ δοῦσα τὸν φόβον αὐτῆς πᾶσι τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν αὐτήν; 18 καὶ φοβηθήσονται αἱ νῆσοι ἀπὸ ἡμέρας πτώσεώς σου· 19 ὅτι τάδε λέγει Κύριος Κύριος· ὅταν δῶ σε πόλιν ἠρημωμένην ὡς τὰς πόλεις τὰς μὴ κατοικισθησομένας, ἐν τῷ ἀναγαγεῖν με ἐπὶ σὲ τὴν ἄβυσσον καὶ κατακαλύψει σε ὕδωρ πολύ, 20 καὶ καταβιβάσω σε πρὸς τοὺς καταβαίνοντας εἰς βόθρον πρὸς λαὸν αἰῶνος καὶ κατοικιῶ σε εἰς βάθη τῆς γῆς ὡς ἔρημον αἰώνιον μετὰ καταβαινόντων εἰς βόθρον, ὅπως μὴ κατοικηθῇς μηδὲ ἀναστῇς ἐπὶ γῆς ζωῆς. 21 ἀπώλειάν σε δώσω, καὶ οὐχ ὑπάρξεις ἔτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, λέγει Κύριος Κύριος.
