1 "Quaesitus sum ab his, qui non consulebant me, inventus sum ab his, qui non quaerebant me. Dixi: "Ecce ego, ecce ego!" ad gentem, quae non invocabat nomen meum.
2 Expandi manus meas tota die ad populum rebellem, qui graditur in via non bona post cogitationes suas;
3 populus, qui ad iracundiam provocat me ante faciem meam semper, qui immolant in hortis et sacrificant super lateres,
4 qui morantur in sepulcris et in locis occultis pernoctant, qui comedunt carnem suillam et ius abominabile in vasis eorum,
5 qui dicunt: "Recede! Non appropinques mihi, quia sanctificarem te". Isti fumus sunt in naribus meis, ignis ardens tota die.
6 Ecce scriptum est coram me; non tacebo, sed retribuam, et retribuam in sinum eorum
7 iniquitates vestras et iniquitates patrum vestrorum simul, dicit Dominus, qui sacrificaverunt super montes et super colles exprobraverunt mihi; et remetiar opus eorum primo in sinu eorum".
8 Haec dicit Dominus: "Quomodo si inveniatur mustum in botro et dicatur: "Ne dissipes illud, quoniam benedictio est in eo", sic faciam propter servos meos, ut non disperdam totum.
9 Et educam de Iacob semen et de Iuda possidentem montes meos; et hereditabunt terram electi mei, et servi mei habitabunt ibi.
10 Et erit Saron in pascua gregum, et vallis Achor in cubile armentorum populo meo, qui quaesierunt me.
11 Vos autem, qui derelinquitis Dominum, qui obliviscimini montem sanctum meum, qui ponitis Gad mensam et amphoram impletis Meni,
12 numerabo vos in gladio, et omnes in caede corruetis; pro eo quod vocavi, et non respondistis, locutus sum, et non audistis, sed fecistis malum in oculis meis et, quod displicet mihi, elegistis".
13 Propter hoc haec dicit Dominus Deus: "Ecce servi mei comedent, et vos esurietis; ecce servi mei bibent, et vos sitietis; ecce servi mei laetabuntur, et vos confundemini;
14 ecce servi mei laudabunt in exsultatione cordis, et vos clamabitis prae dolore cordis et prae contritione spiritus ululabitis.
15 Et relinquetis nomen vestrum in iuramentum electis meis: "Interficiat te Dominus Deus"; et servos suos vocabit nomine alio.
16 Quicumque benedicit sibi in terra, benedicet sibi in Deo Amen; et, quicumque iurat in terra, iurabit in Deo Amen; quia oblivioni tradentur angustiae priores, et quia abscondentur ab oculis meis.
17 Ecce enim ego creo caelos novos et terram novam, et non erunt in memoria priora et non ascendent super cor.
18 Sed gaudebunt et exsultabunt usque in sempiternum in his, quae ego creo, quia ecce ego creo Ierusalem exsultationem et populum eius gaudium.
19 Et exsultabo in Ierusalem et gaudebo in populo meo, et non audietur in ea ultra vox fletus et vox clamoris.
20 Non erit ibi amplius infans dierum et senex, qui non impleat dies suos. Quoniam puer erit, qui centenarius moriatur; et, qui non attingat centum annos, maledictus erit.
21 Et aedificabunt domos et habitabunt et plantabunt vineas et comedent fructus earum.
22 Non aedificabunt, ut alius habitet, non plantabunt, ut alius comedat: secundum enim dies ligni erunt dies populi mei, et operibus manuum suarum diu fruentur electi mei.
23 Non laborabunt frustra neque generabunt in interitum repentinum, quia semen benedictorum erunt Domini, et nepotes eorum cum eis.
24 Eritque: antequam clament, ego respondebo; adhuc illis loquentibus, ego exaudiam.
25 Lupus et agnus pascentur simul, et leo sicut bos comedet paleas, et serpenti pulvis panis eius. Non nocebunt neque occident in omni monte sancto meo", dicit Dominus.
King James Version
1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;
3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;
4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,
7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.
8 ¶ Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all.
9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
10 And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.
11 But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.
12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:
14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.
15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:
16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.
17 ¶ For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
