1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, notas fac Ierusalem abominationes suas
3 et dices: Haec dicit Dominus Deus ad Ierusalem: Radix tua et generatio tua de terra Chanaan, pater tuus Amorraeus et mater tua Hetthaea.
4 Et quando nata es, in die ortus tui non est praecisus umbilicus tuus, et in aqua non es lota in emundationem nec sale salita nec involuta pannis.
5 Non pepercit super te oculus, ut faceret tibi unum de his, miseratus tui, sed proiecta es super faciem terrae in abiectione animae tuae in die, qua nata es.
6 Praeteriens autem te, vidi te palpitare in sanguine tuo et dixi tibi, cum esses in sanguine tuo: Vive. Dixi, inquam, tibi: In sanguine tuo vive.
7 Crescentem quasi germen agri dedi te, et crevisti et grandis effecta es et pervenisti ad mundum muliebrem: ubera tua intumuerunt, et pilus tuus germinavit; sed eras nuda et confusione plena.
8 Et transivi per te et vidi te; et ecce tempus tuum, tempus amantium. Et expandi amictum meum super te et operui ignominiam tuam; et iuravi tibi et ingressus sum pactum tecum, ait Dominus Deus, et facta es mea.
9 Et lavi te aqua et emundavi sanguinem tuum ex te et unxi te oleo;
10 et vestivi te discoloribus et calceavi te calceis corii delphini et cinxi te bysso et indui te serico.
11 Et ornavi te ornamento et dedi armillas in manibus tuis et torquem circa collum tuum;
12 et dedi inaurem super os tuum et circulos auribus tuis et coronam decoris in capite tuo.
13 Et ornata es auro et argento et vestita es bysso et serico et multicoloribus. Similam et mel et oleum comedisti et decora facta es vehementer nimis et apta ad regnum.
14 Et egressum est nomen tuum in gentes propter speciem tuam, quia perfecta eras in decore meo, quem posueram super te, dicit Dominus Deus.
15 Et habens fiduciam in pulchritudine tua fornicata es in nomine tuo et exposuisti fornicationem tuam omni transeunti, quisquis fuerit.
16 Et sumens de vestimentis tuis fecisti tibi excelsa variegata et fornicata es super eis, sicut non est factum neque futurum est.
17 Et tulisti vasa decoris tui de auro meo atque argento meo, quae dedi tibi, et fecisti tibi imagines masculinas et fornicata es in eis.
18 Et sumpsisti vestimenta tua multicoloria et operuisti illas et oleum meum et thymiama meum posuisti coram eis.
19 Et panem meum, quem dedi tibi, similam et oleum et mel, quibus enutrivi te, posuisti in conspectu eorum in odorem suavitatis, et factum est, ait Dominus Deus.
20 Et tulisti filios tuos et filias tuas, quas generasti mihi, et immolasti eis ad devorandum. Numquid parva est fornicatio tua?
21 Immolasti filios meos et dedisti illos consecrans eis.
22 Et post omnes abominationes tuas et fornicationes non es recordata dierum adulescentiae tuae, quando eras nuda et confusione plena, palpitans in sanguine tuo.
23 Et accidit post omnem malitiam tuam - vae, vae tibi!, ait Dominus Deus -
24 et aedificasti tibi fornicem et fecisti tibi excelsum in cunctis plateis;
25 ad omne caput viae aedificasti locum elevatum tuum et abominabilem fecisti decorem tuum et divisisti pedes tuos omni transeunti et multiplicasti fornicationes tuas.
26 Et fornicata es cum filiis Aegypti vicinis tuis magnorum membrorum et multiplicasti fornicationem tuam ad irritandum me.
27 Ecce ego extendi manum meam super te et imminui portionem tuam et dedi te in animam odientium te, filiarum Palaestinarum, quae erubescunt in via tua scelerata.
28 Et fornicata es in filiis Assyriorum, eo quod necdum fueris expleta; et, postquam fornicata es, nec sic es satiata.
29 Et multiplicasti fornicationem tuam usque ad terram mercatorum Chaldaeam, et nec sic satiata es.
30 In quo mundabo cor tuum, ait Dominus Deus, cum faceres omnia haec opera mulieris meretricis et procacis?
31 Quia fabricasti fornicem tuum in capite omnis viae et excelsum tuum fecisti in omni platea; nec facta es quasi meretrix, quia sprevisti pretium.
32 Mulier adultera loco viri sui accipit alienos.
33 Omnibus meretricibus dantur mercedes, tu autem dedisti mercedes cunctis amatoribus tuis et donabas eis, ut intrarent ad te undique ad fornicandum tecum.
34 Factumque in te est contra consuetudinem mulierum in fornicationibus tuis, et post te non sunt fornicati; in eo enim quod dedisti mercedes et mercedes non accepisti, factum est in te contrarium.
35 Propterea, meretrix, audi verbum Domini.
36 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Quia effusum est aes tuum, et revelata est ignominia tua in fornicationibus tuis ad amatores tuos et ad omnia idola abominabilia tua, in sanguine filiorum tuorum, quos dedisti eis,
37 ideo ecce ego congregabo omnes amatores tuos, quibus iucunda fuisti, et omnes, quos dilexisti, cum universis, quos oderas; et congregabo eos super te undique et nudabo ignominiam tuam coram eis, et videbunt omnem turpitudinem tuam.
38 Et iudicabo te iudiciis adulterarum et effundentium sanguinem et dabo te in sanguinem furoris et zeli.
39 Et dabo te in manus eorum, et destruent fornicem tuum et demolientur excelsa tua et denudabunt te vestimentis tuis et auferent vasa decoris tui et derelinquent te nudam plenamque ignominia.
40 Et convocabunt contra te congregationem et lapidabunt te lapidibus et trucidabunt te gladiis suis.
41 Et comburent domos tuas igni et facient in te iudicia in oculis mulierum plurimarum; et faciam ut desinas fornicari, et mercedes ultra non dabis.
42 Et satiabo indignationem meam in te, et auferetur zelus meus a te; et quiescam nec irascar amplius.
43 Eo quod non fueris recordata dierum adulescentiae tuae et provocasti me in omnibus his, propterea et ego vias tuas in capite tuo dabo, ait Dominus Deus, et non feci iuxta scelera tua in omnibus abominationibus tuis.
44 Ecce omnis, qui dicit vulgo proverbium in te, assumet illud dicens: "Sicut mater, ita et filia eius".
45 Filia matris tuae es tu, quae sprevit virum suum et filios suos; et soror sororum tuarum es tu, quae spreverunt viros suos et filios suos. Mater vestra Hetthaea, et pater vester Amorraeus.
46 Et soror tua maior Samaria, ipsa et filiae eius, quae habitat ad sinistram tuam; soror autem tua minor te, quae habitat a dextris tuis, Sodoma et filiae eius.
47 Sed nec in viis earum ambulasti neque secundum scelera earum fecisti; quasi parum fuisset, sceleratiora fecisti illis in omnibus viis tuis.
48 Vivo ego, dicit Dominus Deus, non fecit Sodoma soror tua, ipsa et filiae eius, sicut fecisti tu et filiae tuae.
49 Ecce haec fuit iniquitas Sodomae, sororis tuae: superbia, saturitas panis et securum otium erat ei et filiabus eius, et manum egeni et pauperis non sustentabant;
50 et elevatae sunt et fecerunt abominationes coram me, et abstuli eas, sicut vidisti.
51 Et Samaria dimidium peccatorum tuorum non peccavit, sed vicisti eas sceleribus tuis et iustificasti sorores tuas in omnibus abominationibus tuis, quas operata es.
52 Ergo et tu porta confusionem tuam, quae absolvisti sorores tuas peccatis tuis, sceleratius agens quam illae; iustificatae sunt enim a te. Ergo et tu confundere et porta ignominiam tuam, quae iustificasti sorores tuas.
53 Et convertam sortem earum, sortem Sodomorum cum filiabus suis et sortem Samariae et filiarum eius; et convertam sortem tuam in medio earum,
54 ut portes ignominiam tuam et confundaris in omnibus, quae fecisti consolans eas.
55 Et soror tua Sodoma et filiae eius revertentur ad pristinum statum suum, et Samaria et filiae eius revertentur ad pristinum statum suum, et tu et filiae tuae revertimini ad pristinum statum vestrum.
56 Nonne fuit Sodoma, soror tua, in fabulam in ore tuo in die superbiae tuae,
57 antequam revelaretur malitia tua, sicut hoc tempore tu es in opprobrium filiarum Syriae et cunctarum in circuitu tuo filiarum Palaestinarum, quae ambiunt te per gyrum?
58 Scelus tuum et ignominiam tuam tu portabis, ait Dominus.
59 Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus: Et faciam tibi, sicut fecisti, qui despexisti iuramentum, ut irritum faceres pactum.
60 Et recordabor ego pacti mei tecum in diebus adulescentiae tuae et suscitabo tibi pactum sempiternum.
61 Et recordaberis viarum tuarum et confunderis, cum receperis sorores tuas te maiores cum minoribus tuis, et dabo eas tibi in filias sed non ex pacto tuo.
62 Et suscitabo ego pactum meum tecum, et scies quia ego Dominus,
63 ut recorderis et confundaris, et non sit tibi ultra aperire os prae confusione tua, cum placatus fuero tibi in omnibus, quae fecisti", ait Dominus Deus.
King James Version
1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.
4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
5 None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.
6 ¶ And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.
7 I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare.
8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.
9 Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.
10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.
11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.
12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.
13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.
14 And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.
15 ¶ But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.
16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.
17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,
18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.
19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.
20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,
21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?
22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.
23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD;)
24 That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.
25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.
26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.
27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.
28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.
29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.
30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;
31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;
32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!
33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.
34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.
35 ¶ Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:
36 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;
37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.
38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.
39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.
40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.
41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.
42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.
43 Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.
44 ¶ Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.
45 Thou art thy mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.
46 And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters.
47 Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.
48 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.
49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
51 Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done.
52 Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.
53 When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:
54 That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.
55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.
56 For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride,
57 Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.
58 Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD.
59 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.
60 ¶ Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.
61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant.
62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD:
63 That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.
