||visio Isaiae filii Amos quam vidit super Iudam et Hierusalem in diebus Oziae Ioatham Ahaz Ezechiae regum Iuda
The vision of Isaias the Son of Amos, which he saw concerning Juda and Jerusalem in the days of Ozias, Joathan, Achaz, and Ezechias, kings of Juda.
||audite caeli 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.
||cognovit bos possessorem suum et asinus praesepe domini sui Israhel non cognovit 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.
||vae genti peccatrici populo gravi iniquitate semini nequam filiis sceleratis dereliquerunt Dominum blasphemaverunt Sanctum Israhel 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.
||super quo percutiam vos ultra addentes praevaricationem omne caput languidum et omne cor maerens
For what shall I strike you any more, you that increase transgression? the whole head is sick, and the whole heart is sad.
||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.
||terra vestra deserta civitates vestrae succensae 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.
||et derelinquetur filia Sion ut umbraculum in vinea et sicut tugurium in cucumerario sicut civitas quae 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.
||nisi Dominus exercituum reliquisset nobis semen quasi Sodoma fuissemus et quasi Gomorra similes essemus
Except the Lord of hosts had left us seed, we had been as Sodom, and we should have been like to Gomorrha.
||audite verbum Domini principes Sodomorum percipite auribus legem Dei nostri populus Gomorrae
Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom, give ear to the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrha.
||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.
||cum veneritis ante conspectum meum quis quaesivit haec 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?
||ne adferatis ultra sacrificium frustra incensum abominatio est mihi neomeniam et sabbatum et festivitates alias non feram iniqui sunt coetus 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.
||kalendas vestras et sollemnitates 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.
||et cum extenderitis manus vestras avertam oculos meos a vobis et cum multiplicaveritis orationem non audiam manus vestrae sanguine plenae 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.
||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,
||discite benefacere quaerite iudicium subvenite oppresso iudicate pupillo defendite viduam
Learn to do well: seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge for the fatherless, defend the widow.
||et venite et arguite me dicit Dominus si fuerint peccata vestra ut coccinum quasi nix dealbabuntur et si fuerint rubra quasi vermiculus velut lana 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.
||si volueritis et audieritis bona terrae comedetis
If you be willing, and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land.
||quod si nolueritis et me provocaveritis ad iracundiam 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.
||quomodo facta est meretrix civitas fidelis plena iudicii iustitia habitavit in ea nunc autem homicidae
How is the faithful city, that was full of judgment, become a harlot? justice dwelt in it, but now murderers.
||argentum tuum versum est in scoriam vinum tuum mixtum est aqua
Thy silver is turned into dross: thy wine is mingled with water.
||principes tui infideles socii furum omnes diligunt munera sequuntur retributiones pupillo non iudicant et causa viduae non ingreditur ad eos
Thy princes are faithless, companions of thieves: they all love bribes, they run after rewards. They judge not for the fatherless: and the widow's cause cometh not in to them.
||propter hoc ait Dominus exercituum Fortis Israhel 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.
||et convertam manum meam ad te et excoquam ad purum scoriam tuam et auferam omne stagnum tuum
And I will turn my hand to thee, and I will clean purge away thy dross, and I will take away all thy tin.
||et restituam iudices tuos ut fuerunt prius et consiliarios tuos sicut antiquitus post haec vocaberis civitas iusti 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.
||Sion in iudicio redimetur et reducent eam in iustitia
Sion shall be redeemed in judgment, and they shall bring her back in justice.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||et erit fortitudo vestra ut favilla stuppae 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.
