Isaias - caput 1Isaias - chapter 1


1 Visio Isaiæ, filii Amos, quam vidit super Judam et Jerusalem, in diebus Oziæ, Joathan, Achaz, et Ezechiæ, regum Juda.

The vision of Isaias the son of Amos I which he saw concerning Juda and Jerusalem in the days of Ozias, Joathan, Achaz, and Ezechias, kings of Juda.

2 Audite, cæli, et auribus percipe, terra, quoniam Dominus locutus est. Filios enutrivi, et exaltavi; ipsi autem spreverunt me.

Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, for the Lord hath spoken. I have brought up children, and exalted them: but they have despised me.

3 Cognovit bos possessorem suum, et asinus præsepe domini sui; Isræl autem me non cognovit, et populus meus non intellexit.

The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master' s crib: but Israel hath not known me, and my people hath not understood.

4 Væ genti peccatrici, populo gravi iniquitate, semini nequam, filiis sceleratis! dereliquerunt Dominum; blasphemaverunt Sanctum Isræl; abalienati sunt retrorsum.

Woe to the sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a wicked seed, ungracious children: they have forsaken the Lord, they have blasphemed the Holy One of Israel, they are gone away backwards.

5 Super quo percutiam vos ultra, addentes prævaricationem? omne caput languidum, et omne cor mœrens.

For what shall I strike you any more, you that increase transgression? the whole head is sick, and the whole heart is sad.

6 A planta pedis usque ad verticem, non est in eo sanitas; vulnus, et livor, et plaga tumens, non est circumligata, nec curata medicamine, neque fota oleo.

From the sole of the foot unto the top of the head, there is no soundness therein: wounds and bruises and swelling sores: they are not bound up, nor dressed, nor fomented with oil.

7 Terra vestra deserta; civitates vestræ succensæ igni: regionem vestram coram vobis alieni devorant, et desolabitur sicut in vastitate hostili.

Your land is desolate, your cities are burnt with fire: your country strangers devour before your face, and it shall be desolate as when wasted by enemies.

8 Et derelinquetur filia Sion ut umbraculum in vinea, et sicut tugurium in cucumerario, et sicut civitas quæ vastatur.

And the daughter of Sion shall be left as a covert in a vineyard, and as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, and as a city that is laid waste.

9 Nisi Dominus exercituum reliquisset nobis semen, quasi Sodoma fuissemus, et quasi Gomorrha similes essemus.

Except the Lord of hosts had left us seed, we had been as Sodom, and we should have been like to Gomorrha.

10 Audite verbum Domini, principes Sodomorum; percipite auribus legem Dei nostri, populus Gomorrhæ.

Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom, give ear to the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrha.

11 Quo mihi multitudinem victimarum vestrarum? dicit Dominus. Plenus sum: holocausta arietum, et adipem pinguium, et sanguinem vitulorum et agnorum et hircorum, nolui.

To what purpose do you offer me the multitude of your victims, saith the Lord? I am full, I desire not holocausts of rams, and fat of fatlings, and blood of calves, and lambs, and buck goats.

12 Cum veniretis ante conspectum meum, quis quæsivit hæc de manibus vestris, ut ambularetis in atriis meis?

When you came to appear before me, who required these things at your hands, that you should walk in my courts?

13 Ne offeratis ultra sacrificium frustra: incensum abominatio est mihi. Neomeniam et sabbatum, et festivitates alias, non feram; iniqui sunt cœtus vestri.

Offer sacrifice no more in vain: incense is an abomination to me. The new moons, and the sabbaths, and other festivals I will not abide, your assemblies are wicked.

14 Calendas vestras, et solemnitates vestras odivit anima mea: facta sunt mihi molesta; laboravi sustinens.

My soul hateth your new moons, and your solemnities: they are become troublesome to me, I am weary of bearing them.

15 Et cum extenderitis manus vestras, avertam oculos meos a vobis, et cum multiplicaveritis orationem, non exaudiam: manus enim vestræ sanguine plenæ sunt.

And when you stretch forth your hands, I will turn away my eyes from you: and when you multiply prayer, I will not hear: for your hands are full of blood.

16 Lavamini, mundi estote; auferte malum cogitationum vestrarum ab oculis meis: quiescite agere perverse,

Wash yourselves, be clean, take away the evil of your devices from my eyes: cease to do perversely,

17 discite benefacere; quærite judicium, subvenite oppresso, judicate pupillo, defendite viduam.

Learn to do well: seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge for the fatherless, defend the widow.

18 Et venite, et arguite me, dicit Dominus. Si fuerint peccata vestra ut coccinum, quasi nix dealbabuntur; et si fuerint rubra quasi vermiculus, velut lana alba erunt.

And then come, and accuse me, saith the Lord: if your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow: and if they be red as crimson, they shall be white as wool.

19 Si volueritis, et audieritis me, bona terræ comeditis.

If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land.

20 Quod si nolueritis, et me ad iracundiam provocaveritis, gladius devorabit vos, quia os Domini locutum est.

But if you will not, and will provoke me to wrath: the sword shall devour you because the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

21 Quomodo facta est meretrix civitas fidelis, plena judicii? justitia habitavit in ea, nunc autem homicidæ.

How is the faithful city, that was full of judgment, become a harlot? justice dwelt in it, but now murderers.

22 Argentum tuum versum est in scoriam; vinum tuum mistum est aqua.

Thy silver is turned into dross: thy wine is mingled with water.

23 Principes tui infideles, socii furum. Omnes diligunt munera, sequuntur retributiones. Pupillo non judicant, et causa viduæ non ingreditur ad illos.

Thy princes are faithless, companions of thieves: they all love bribes, the run after rewards. They judge not for the fatherless: and the widow' s cometh not in to them.

24 Propter hoc ait Dominus, Deus exercituum, Fortis Isræl: Heu! consolabor super hostibus meis, et vindicabor de inimicis meis.

Therefore saith the Lord the God of hosts, the mighty one of Israel: Ah! I will comfort myself over my adversaries: and I will be revenged of my enemies.

25 Et convertam manum meam ad te, et excoquam ad puram scoriam tuam, et auferam omne stannum tuum.

And I will turn my hand to thee, and I will clean purge away thy dress, and I will take away all thy tin.

26 Et restituam judices tuos ut fuerunt prius, et consiliarios tuos sicut antiquitus; post hæc vocaberis civitas justi, urbs fidelis.

And I will restore thy judges as they were before, and thy counsellors as of old. After this thou shalt be called the city of the just, a faithful city.

27 Sion in judicio redimetur, et reducent eam in justita.

Sion shall be redeemed in judgment, and they shall bring her back in justice.

28 Et conteret scelestos, et peccatores simul; et qui dereliquerunt Dominum consumentur.

And he shall destroy the wicked, and the sinners together: and they that have forsaken the Lord, shall be consumed.

29 Confundentur enim ab idolis quibus sacrificaverunt, et erubescetis super hortis quos elegeratis,

For they shall be confounded for the idols, to which they have sacrificed: and you shall be ashamed of the gardens which you have chosen.

30 cum fueritis velut quercus defluentibus foliis, et velut hortus absque aqua.

When you shall be as an oak with the leaves falling off, and as a garden without water.

31 Et erit fortitudo vestra ut favilla stuppæ, et opus vestrum quasi scintilla, et succendetur utrumque simul, et non erit qui extinguat.

And your strength shall be as the ashes of tow, and your work as a spark: and both shall burn together, and there shall be none to quench it.
