1 Tu autem, fili hominis, pro pheta super montes Israel et dices: Montes Israel, audite verbum Domini.
2 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Eo quod dixerit inimicus de vobis: "Euge, altitudines sempiternae in hereditatem datae sunt nobis";
3 propterea vaticinare et dic: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Pro eo quod desolati estis, et inhiaverunt vobis per circuitum, ut fieretis in hereditatem reliquis gentibus, et ascendistis super labium linguae et opprobrium populi;
4 propterea, montes Israel, audite verbum Domini Dei: Haec dicit Dominus Deus montibus et collibus, torrentibus vallibusque et desertis dissipatis et urbibus derelictis, quae depopulatae sunt et subsannatae a reliquis gentibus per circuitum;
5 propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus: In igne zeli mei locutus sum de reliquis gentibus et de Idumaea universa, quae dederunt terram meam sibi in hereditatem cum gaudio et toto corde et ex animo maligno, ut pascua eius depraedarentur.
6 Idcirco vaticinare super humum Israel et dices montibus et collibus, torrentibus et vallibus: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego in zelo meo et in furore meo locutus sum, eo quod confusionem gentium sustinueritis;
7 idcirco haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ego levavi manum meam: gentes, quae in circuitu vestro sunt, ipsae confusionem suam portabunt;
8 vos autem, montes Israel, ramos vestros germinabitis et fructum vestrum afferetis populo meo Israel, prope est enim ut veniat.
9 Quia ecce ego ad vos et convertar ad vos, et arabimini et accipietis sementem;
10 et multiplicabo in vobis homines, omnem domum Israel, et habitabuntur civitates, et ruinosa instaurabuntur.
11 Et replebo vos hominibus et iumentis, et multiplicabuntur et crescent; et habitari vos faciam, sicut a principio bonisque donabo maioribus quam habuistis ab initio, et scietis quia ego Dominus.
12 Et adducam super vos homines, populum meum Israel, et hereditate possidebunt te, et eris eis in hereditatem et non addes ultra ut eos facias absque liberis.
13 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Pro eo quod dicunt de vobis: "Devoratrix hominum es et faciens gentem tuam absque liberis";
14 propterea homines non comedes amplius et gentem tuam non facies ultra absque liberis, ait Dominus Deus.
15 Nec auditam faciam in te amplius ignominiam gentium, et opprobrium populorum nequaquam portabis ultra et gentem tuam non facies amplius absque liberis", ait Dominus Deus.
16 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens:
17 "Fili hominis, domus Israel habitaverunt in humo sua et polluerunt eam in viis suis et in operibus suis; iuxta immunditiam menstruatae facta est via eorum coram me.
18 Et effudi indignationem meam super eos pro sanguine, quem fuderunt super terram, et in idolis suis polluerunt eam.
19 Et dispersi eos in gentes, et ventilati sunt in terras; iuxta vias eorum et iuxta opera eorum iudicavi eos.
20 Et ingressi sunt ad gentes, ad quas introierunt, et polluerunt nomen sanctum meum, cum diceretur de eis: "Populus Domini iste est, et de terra eius egressi sunt".
21 Et peperci nomini meo sancto, quod polluerat domus Israel in gentibus, ad quas ingressi sunt.
22 Idcirco dices domui Israel: Haec dicit Domihus Deus: Non propter vos ego faciam, domus Israel, sed propter nomen sanctum meum, quod polluistis in gentibus, ad quas intrastis;
23 et sanctificabo nomen meum magnum, quod pollutum est inter gentes, quod polluistis in medio earum, ut sciant gentes quia ego Dominus, ait Dominus Deus, cum sanctificatus fuero in vobis coram eis.
24 Tollam quippe vos de gentibus et congregabo vos de universis terris et adducam vos in terram vestram;
25 et effundam super vos aquam mundam, et mundabimini ab omnibus inquinamentis vestris, et ab universis idolis vestris mundabo vos.
26 Et dabo vobis cor novum et spiritum novum ponam in medio vestri et auferam cor lapideum de carne vestra et dabo vobis cor carneum;
27 et spiritum meum ponam in medio vestri et faciam, ut in praeceptis meis ambuletis et iudicia mea custodiatis et operemini.
28 Et habitabitis in terra, quam dedi patribus vestris, et eritis mihi in populum, et ego ero vobis in Deum.
29 Et salvabo vos ex universis inquinamentis vestris et vocabo frumentum et multiplicabo illud et non imponam vobis famem.
30 Et multiplicabo fructum ligni et genimina agri, ut non portetis ultra opprobrium famis in gentibus.
31 Et recordabimini viarum vestrarum pessimarum operumque non bonorum, et displicebunt vobis iniquitates vestrae et scelera vestra.
32 Non propter vos ego faciam, ait Dominus Deus, notum sit vobis; confundimini et erubescite super viis vestris, domus Israel.
33 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: In die, qua mundavero vos ex omnibus iniquitatibus vestris et inhabitari fecero urbes et instauravero ruinosa,
34 et terra deserta fuerit exculta, quae quondam erat desolata in oculis omnis viatoris,
35 dicent: "Terra illa inculta facta est ut hortus Eden, et civitates desertae et destitutae atque destructae munitae inhabitantur".
36 Et scient gentes, quaecumque derelictae fuerint in circuitu vestro, quia ego Dominus aedificavi dissipata plantavique inculta; ego Dominus locutus sum et facio.
37 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Adhuc in hoc exorabor a domo Israel, ut faciam eis: multiplicabo eos sicut gregem hominum,
38 ut gregem sanctum, ut gregem Ierusalem in sollemnitatibus eius; sic erunt civitates desertae plenae gregibus hominum, et scient quia ego Dominus".
King James Version
1 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:
2 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are our's in possession:
3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:
4 Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about;
5 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:
7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.
8 ¶ But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.
9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:
10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:
11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.
13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations;
14 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.
15 Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the heathen any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall any more, saith the Lord GOD.
16 ¶ Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
17 Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.
18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:
19 And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
20 And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.
21 ¶ But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.
22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 ¶ Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.
34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
37 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
