||cantabo dilecto meo canticum patruelis mei vineae suae vinea facta est dilecto meo in cornu filio olei
I will sing to my beloved the canticle of my cousin concerning his vineyard. My beloved had a vineyard on a hill in a fruitful place.
||et sepivit eam et lapides elegit ex illa et plantavit eam electam et aedificavit turrem in medio eius et torcular extruxit in ea et expectavit ut faceret uvas et fecit labruscas
And he fenced it in, and picked the stones out of it, and planted it with the choicest vines, and built a tower in the midst thereof, and set up a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
||nunc ergo habitator Hierusalem et vir Iuda iudicate inter me et inter vineam meam
And now, O ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and ye men of Juda, judge between me and my vineyard.
||quid est quod debui ultra facere vineae meae et non feci ei an quod expectavi ut faceret uvas et fecit labruscas
What is there that I ought to do more to my vineyard, that I have not done to it? was it that I looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it hath brought forth wild grapes?
||et nunc ostendam vobis quid ego faciam vineae meae auferam sepem eius et erit in direptionem diruam maceriam eius et erit in conculcationem
And now I will shew you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be wasted: I will break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down.
||et ponam eam desertam non putabitur et non fodietur et ascendent vepres et spinae et nubibus mandabo ne pluant super eam imbrem
And I will make it desolate: it shall not be pruned, and it shall not be digged: but briers and thorns shall come up: and I will command the clouds to rain no rain upon it.
||vinea enim Domini exercituum domus Israhel et vir Iuda germen delectabile eius et expectavi ut faceret iudicium et ecce iniquitas et iustitiam et ecce clamor
For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel: and the man of Juda, his pleasant plant: and I looked that he should do judgment, and behold iniquity: and do justice, and behold a cry.
||vae qui coniungitis domum ad domum et agrum agro copulatis usque ad terminum loci numquid habitabitis soli vos in medio terrae
Woe to you that join house to house and lay field to field, even to the end of the place: shall you alone dwell in the midst of the earth?
||in auribus meis sunt haec Domini exercituum nisi domus multae desertae fuerint grandes et pulchrae absque habitatore
These things are in my ears, saith the Lord of hosts: Unless many great and fair houses shall become desolate, without an inhabitant.
||decem enim iuga vinearum facient lagunculam unam et triginta modii sementis facient modios tres
For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one little measure, and thirty bushels of seed shall yield three bushels.
||vae qui consurgitis mane ad ebrietatem sectandam et potandum usque ad vesperam ut vino aestuetis
Woe to you that rise up early in the morning to follow drunkenness, and to drink in the evening, to be inflamed with wine.
||cithara et lyra et tympanum et tibia et vinum in conviviis vestris et opus Domini non respicitis nec opera manuum eius consideratis
The harp, and the lyre, and, the timbrel and the pipe, and wine are in your feasts: and the work of the Lord you regard not, nor do you consider the works of his hands.
||propterea captivus ductus est populus meus quia non habuit scientiam et nobiles eius interierunt fame et multitudo eius siti exaruit
Therefore is my people led away captive, because they had not knowledge, and their nobles have perished with famine, and their multitude were dried up with thirst.
||propterea dilatavit infernus animam suam et aperuit os suum absque ullo termino et descendent fortes eius et populus eius et sublimes gloriosique eius ad eum
Therefore hath hell enlarged her soul, and opened her mouth without any bounds, and their strong ones, and their people, and their high and glorious ones shall go down into it.
||et incurvabitur homo et humiliabitur vir et oculi sublimium deprimentur
And man shall be brought down, and man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be brought low.
||et exaltabitur Dominus exercituum in iudicio et Deus sanctus sanctificabitur in iustitia
And the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and the holy God shall be sanctified in justice.
||et pascentur agni iuxta ordinem suum et deserta in ubertatem versa advenae comedent
And the lambs shall feed according to their order, and strangers shall eat the deserts turned into fruitfulness.
||vae qui trahitis iniquitatem in funiculis vanitatis et quasi vinculum plaustri peccatum
Woe to you that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as the rope of a cart.
||qui dicitis festinet et cito veniat opus eius ut videamus et adpropiet et veniat consilium Sancti Israhel et sciemus illud
That say: Let him make haste, and let his work come quickly, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel come, that we may know it.
||vae qui dicitis malum bonum et bonum malum ponentes tenebras lucem et lucem tenebras ponentes amarum in dulce et dulce in amarum
Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.
||vae qui sapientes estis in oculis vestris et coram vobismet ipsis prudentes
Woe to you that are wise in your own eyes, and prudent in your own conceits.
||vae qui potentes estis ad bibendum vinum et viri fortes ad miscendam ebrietatem
Woe to you that are mighty to drink wine, and stout men at drunkenness.
||qui iustificatis impium pro muneribus et iustitiam iusti aufertis ab eo
That justify the wicked for gifts, and take away the justice of the just from him.
||propter hoc sicut devorat stipulam lingua ignis et calor flammae exurit sic radix eorum quasi favilla erit et germen eorum ut pulvis ascendet abiecerunt enim legem Domini exercituum et eloquium Sancti Israhel blasphemaverunt
Therefore as the tongue of the fire devoureth the stubble, and the heat of the flame consumeth it: so shall their root be as ashes, and their bud shall go up as dust: for they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and have blasphemed the word of the Holy One of Israel.
||ideo iratus est furor Domini in populo suo et extendit manum suam super eum et percussit eum et conturbati sunt montes et facta sunt morticina eorum quasi stercus in medio platearum in omnibus his non est aversus furor eius sed adhuc manus eius extenta
Therefore is the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched out his hand upon them, and struck them: and the mountains were troubles, and their carcasses became as dung in the midst of the streets. For after this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
||et levabit signum nationibus procul et sibilabit ad eum de finibus terrae et ecce festinus velociter veniet
And he will lift up a sign to the nations afar off, and will whistle to them from the ends of the earth: and behold they shall come with speed swiftly.
||non est deficiens neque laborans in eo non dormitabit neque dormiet neque solvetur cingulum renum eius nec rumpetur corrigia calciamenti eius
There is none that shall faint, nor labour among them: they shall not slumber nor sleep, neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken.
||sagittae eius acutae et omnes arcus eius extenti ungulae equorum eius ut silex et rotae eius quasi impetus tempestatis
Their arrows are sharp, and all their bows are bent. The hoofs of their horses shall be like the flint, and their wheels like the violence of a tempest.
||rugitus eius ut leonis rugiet ut catuli leonum et frendet et tenebit praedam et amplexabitur et non erit qui eruat
Their roaring like that of a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea they shall roar, and take hold of the prey, and they shall keep fast hold of it, and there shall be none to deliver it.
||et sonabit super eum in die illa sicut sonitus maris aspiciemus in terram et ecce tenebrae tribulationis et lux obtenebrata est in caligine eius
And they shall make a noise against them that day, like the roaring of the sea; we shall look towards the land, and behold darkness of tribulation, and the light is darkened with the mist thereof.
