1 And he cried in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, The judgment of the city has drawn nigh; and each had the weapons of destruction in his hand. 2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the high gate that looks toward the north, and each one’s axe was in his hand; and there was one man in the midst of them clothed with a long robe down to the feet, and a sapphire girdle was on his loins: and they came in and stood near the brazen altar. 3 And the glory of the God of Israel, that was upon them, went up from the cherubs to the porch of the house. And he called the man that was clothed with the long robe, who had the girdle on his loins; 4 And said to him, Go through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark on the foreheads of the men that groan and that grieve for all the iniquities that are done in the midst of them. 5 And he said to the first in my hearing, Go after him into the city, and smite: and let not your eyes spare, and have no mercy. 6 Slay utterly old man and youth, and virgin, and infants, and women: but go ye not nigh any on whom is the mark: begin at my sanctuary. So they began with the elder men who were within in the house. 7 And he said to them, Defile the house, and go out and fill the ways with dead bodies, and smite. 8 And it came to pass as they were smiting, that I fell upon my face, and cried out, and said, Alas, O Lord! wilt thou destroy the remnant of Israel, in pouring out thy wrath upon Jerusalem? 9 Then said he to me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Juda is become very exceedingly great: for the land is filled with many nations, and the city is filled with iniquity and uncleanness: because they have said, The Lord has forsaken the earth, The Lord looks not upon [it]. 10 Therefore mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have any mercy: I have recompensed their ways upon their heads. 11 And, behold, the man clothed with the long robe, and girt with the girdle about his loins, answered and said, I have done as thou didst command me. ΚΑΙ ἀνέκραγεν εἰς τὰ ὦτά μου φωνῇ μεγάλῃ λέγων· ἤγγικεν ἡ ἐκδίκησις τῆς πόλεως· καὶ ἕκαστος εἶχε τὰ σκεύη τῆς ἐξολοθρεύσεως ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ. 2 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἓξ ἄνδρες ἤρχοντο ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ τῆς πύλης τῆς ὑψηλῆς τῆς βλεπούσης πρὸς βορρᾶν, καὶ ἑκάστου πέλυξ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ· καὶ εἷς ἀνὴρ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν ἐνδεδυκὼς ποδήρη, καὶ ζώνη σαπφείρου ἐπὶ τῆς ὀσφύος αὐτοῦ· καὶ εἰσήλθοσαν καὶ ἔστησαν ἐχόμενοι τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τοῦ χαλκοῦ. 3 καὶ δόξα Θεοῦ τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀνέβη ἀπὸ τῶν Χερουβὶμ ἡ οὖσα ἐπ᾿ αὐτῶν εἰς τὸ αἴθριον τοῦ οἴκου. καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν ἐνδεδυκότα τὸν ποδήρη, ὃς εἶχεν ἐπί τῆς ὀσφύος αὐτοῦ τὴν ζώνην, 4 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτόν· δίελθε μέσην τὴν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ δὸς τὸ σημεῖον ἐπὶ τὰ μέτωπα τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν καταστεναζόντων καὶ τῶν κατωδυνωμένων ἐπὶ πάσαις ταῖς ἀνομίαις ταῖς γινομέναις ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς. 5 καὶ τούτοις εἶπεν ἀκούοντός μου· πορεύεσθε ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ κόπτετε καὶ μὴ φείδεσθε τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν καὶ μὴ ἐλεήσητε· 6 πρεσβύτερον καὶ νεανίσκον καὶ παρθένον καὶ νήπια καὶ γυναῖκας ἀποκτείνατε εἰς ἐξάλειψιν, ἐπὶ δὲ πάντας, ἐφ᾿ οὕς ἐστι τὸ σημεῖον, μὴ ἐγγίσητε· καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἁγίων μου ἄρξασθε. καὶ ἤρξαντο ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων, οἳ ἦσαν ἔσω ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ. 7 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτούς· μιάνατε τὸν οἶκον καὶ πλήσατε τὰς ὁδοὺς νεκρῶν ἐκπορευόμενοι καὶ κόπτετε. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ κόπτειν αὐτοὺς καὶ πίπτω ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου καὶ ἀνεβόησα καὶ εἶπα· οἴμοι Κύριε, ἐξαλείφεις σὺ τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν τῷ ἐκχέαι σε τὸν θυμόν σου ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ; 9 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· ἀδικία τοῦ οἴκου ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιούδα μεμεγάλυνται σφόδρα σφόδρα, ὅτι ἐπλήσθη ἡ γῆ λαῶν πολλῶν, καὶ ἡ πόλις ἐπλήσθη ἀδικίας καὶ ἀκαθαρσίας· ὅτι εἶπαν· ἐγκαταλέλοιπε Κύριος τὴν γῆν, οὐκ ἐφορᾷ ὁ Κύριος. 10 καὶ οὐ φείσεταί μου ὁ ὀφθαλμός, οὐδὲ μὴ ἐλεήσω· τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῶν εἰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν δέδωκα. 11 καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ ἐνδεδυκὼς τὸν ποδήρη καὶ ἐζωσμένος τῇ ζώνῃ τὴν ὀσφὺν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπεκρίνατο λέγων· πεποίηκα καθὼς ἐνετείλω μοι.
