||audite me qui sequimini quod iustum est et quaeritis Dominum adtendite ad petram unde excisi estis et ad cavernam laci de qua praecisi estis
Give ear to me, you that follow that which is just, and you that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence you are hewn, and to the hole of the pit from which you are dug out.
||adtendite ad Abraham patrem vestrum et ad Sarram quae peperit vos quia unum vocavi eum et benedixi ei et multiplicavi eum
Look unto Abraham your father, and to Sara that bore you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and multiplied him.
||consolabitur ergo Dominus et Sion consolabitur omnes ruinas eius et ponet desertum eius quasi delicias et solitudinem eius quasi hortum Domini gaudium et laetitia invenietur in ea gratiarum actio et vox laudis
The Lord therefore will comfort Sion, and will comfort all the ruins thereof: and he will make her desert as a place of pleasure, and her wilderness as the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of praise.
||adtendite ad me populus meus et tribus mea me audite quia lex a me exiet et iudicium meum in lucem populorum requiescet
Hearken unto me, O my people, and give ear to me, O my tribes: for a law shall go forth from me, and my judgment shall rest to be a light of the nations.
||prope est iustus meus egressus est salvator meus et brachia mea populos iudicabunt me insulae expectabunt et brachium meum sustinebunt
My just one is near at hand, my saviour is gone forth, and my arms shall judge the people: the islands shall look for me, and shall patiently wait for my arm.
||levate in caelum oculos vestros et videte sub terra deorsum quia caeli sicut fumus liquescent et terra sicut vestimentum adteretur et habitatores eius sicut haec interibunt salus autem mea in sempiternum erit et iustitia mea non deficiet
Lift up your eyes to heaven, and look down to the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish like smoke, and the earth shall be worn away like a garment, and the inhabitants thereof shall perish in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my justice shall not fail.
||audite me qui scitis iustum populus lex mea in corde eorum nolite timere obprobrium hominum et blasphemias eorum ne metuatis
Hearken to me, you that know what is just, my people who have my law in your heart: fear ye not the reproach of men, and be not afraid of their blasphemies.
||sicut enim vestimentum sic comedet eos vermis et sicut lanam sic devorabit eos tinea salus autem mea in sempiternum erit et iustitia mea in generationes generationum
For the worm shall eat them up as a garment: and the moth shall consume them as wool: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my justice from generation to generation.
||consurge consurge induere fortitudinem brachium Domini consurge sicut in diebus antiquis in generationibus saeculorum numquid non tu percussisti superbum vulnerasti draconem
Arise, arise, put on strength, O thou arm of the Lord, arise as in the days of old, in the ancient generations. Hast not thou struck the proud one, and wounded the dragon?
||numquid non tu siccasti mare aquam abyssi vehementis qui posuisti profundum maris viam ut transirent liberati
Hast not thou dried up the sea, the water of the mighty deep, who madest the depth of the sea a way, that the delivered might pass over?
||et nunc qui redempti sunt a Domino revertentur et venient in Sion laudantes et laetitia sempiterna super capita eorum gaudium et laetitiam tenebunt fugiet dolor et gemitus
And now they that are redeemed by the Lord, shall return, and shall come into Sion singing praises, and joy everlasting shall be upon their heads, they shall obtain joy and gladness, sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

I myself will comfort you: who art thou, that thou shouldst be afraid of a mortal man, and of the son of man, who shall wither away like grass?
||et oblitus es Domini factoris tui qui tetendit caelos et fundavit terram et formidasti iugiter tota die a facie furoris eius qui te tribulabat et paraverat ad perdendum ubi nunc est furor tribulantis
And thou hast forgotten the Lord thy maker, who stretched out the heavens, and founded the earth: and thou hast been afraid continually all the day at the presence of his fury who afflicted thee, and had prepared himself to destroy thee: where is now the fury of the oppressor?
||cito veniet gradiens ad aperiendum et non interficiet usque ad internicionem nec deficiet panis eius
He shall quickly come that is going to open unto you, and he shall not kill unto utter destruction, neither shall his bread fail.
||ego autem sum Dominus Deus tuus qui conturbo mare et intumescunt fluctus eius Dominus exercituum nomen meum
But I am the Lord thy God, who trouble the sea, and the waves thereof swell: the Lord of hosts is my name.
||posui verba mea in ore tuo et in umbra manus meae protexi te ut plantes caelos et fundes terram et dicas ad Sion populus meus es tu
I have put my words in thy mouth, and have protected thee in the shadow of my hand, that thou mightest plant the heavens, and found the earth: and mightest say to Sion: Thou art my people.
||elevare elevare consurge Hierusalem quae bibisti de manu Domini calicem irae eius usque ad fundum calicis soporis bibisti et epotasti usque ad feces
Arise, arise, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the Lord the cup of his wrath; thou hast drunk even to the bottom of the cup of dead sleep, and thou hast drunk even to the dregs.
||non est qui sustentet eam ex omnibus filiis quos genuit et non est qui adprehendat manum eius ex omnibus filiis quos enutrivit
There is none that can uphold her among all the children that she hath brought forth: and there is none that taketh her by the hand among all the children that she hath brought up.
||duo sunt quae occurrerunt tibi quis contristabitur super te vastitas et contritio et fames et gladius quis consolabitur te
There are two things that have happened to thee: who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword, who shall comfort thee?
||filii tui proiecti sunt dormierunt in capite omnium viarum sicut bestia inlaqueata pleni indignatione Domini increpatione Dei tui
Thy children are cast forth, they have slept at the head of all the ways, and the wild ox that is snared: full of the indignation of the Lord, of the rebuke of thy God.
||idcirco audi hoc paupercula et ebria non a vino
Therefore hear this, thou poor little one, and thou that art drunk but not with wine.
||haec dicit Dominator tuus Dominus et Deus tuus qui pugnavit pro populo suo ecce tuli de manu tua calicem soporis fundum calicis indignationis meae non adicies ut bibas illud ultra
Thus saith thy Sovereign the Lord, and thy God, who will fight for his people: Behold I have taken out of thy hand the cup of dead sleep, the dregs of the cup of my indignation, thou shalt not drink it again any more.
||et ponam illud in manu eorum qui te humiliaverunt et dixerunt animae tuae incurvare ut transeamus et posuisti ut terram corpus tuum et quasi viam transeuntibus
And I will put it in the hand of them that have oppressed thee, and have said to thy soul: Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as a way to them that went over.
