1 Vae, provocatrix et inquinata, civitas violenta!
2 Non audivit vocem, non suscepit disciplinam; in Domino non est confisa, ad Deum suum non appropiavit.
3 Principes eius in medio eius leones rugientes; iudices eius lupi deserti, ossa non relinquunt in mane.
4 Prophetae eius vaniloqui, viri fallaces; sacerdotes eius polluerunt sanctum, iniuste egerunt contra legem.
5 Dominus iustus in medio eius non faciet iniquitatem; mane, mane iudicium suum dabit, sicut lucem, quae non deficit; nescivit autem iniquus confusionem.
6 "Disperdidi gentes, dissipati sunt anguli earum; desertas feci vias eorum, dum non est qui transeat; desolatae sunt civitates eorum, non remanente viro nec ullo habitatore.
7 Dixi: Nunc timebis me, suscipies disciplinam! Et non evanescent ab oculis eius omnia, in quibus visitavi eam. Verumtamen acceleraverunt corrumpere omnes actiones suas.
8 Quapropter exspecta me, dicit Dominus, in die qua surgam ut testis; quia iudicium meum, ut congregem gentes et colligam regna, ut effundam super eas indignationem meam, omnem iram furoris mei; in igne enim zeli mei devorabitur omnis terra.
9 Quia tunc reddam populis labium purum, ut invocent omnes in nomine Domini et serviant ei umero uno.
10 Ultra flumina Aethiopiae, inde supplices mei, filii dispersorum meorum deferent munus mihi.
11 In die illa non confunderis super cunctis actionibus tuis, quibus praevaricata es in me; quia tunc auferam de medio tui magniloquos superbos tuos, et non adicies exaltari amplius in monte sancto meo.
12 Et derelinquam in medio tui populum pauperem et egenum". Et sperabunt in nomine Domini reliquiae Israel.
13 Non facient iniquitatem nec loquentur mendacium; et non invenietur in ore eorum lingua dolosa, quoniam ipsi pascentur et accubabunt, et non erit qui exterreat.
14 Lauda, filia Sion; iubilate, Israel! Laetare et exsulta in omni corde, filia Ierusalem!
15 Abstulit Dominus iudicium tuum, avertit inimicos tuos; rex Israel, Dominus, in medio tui, non timebis malum ultra.
16 In die illa dicetur Ierusalem: "Noli timere, Sion; ne dissolvantur manus tuae!
17 Dominus Deus tuus in medio tui, fortis ipse salvabit; gaudebit super te in laetitia, commotus in dilectione sua; exsultabit super te in laude
18 sicut in die conventus"." Auferam a te calamitatem, ut non ultra habeas super ea opprobrium.
19 Ecce ego interficiam omnes, qui afflixerunt te in tempore illo; et salvabo claudicantem et eam, quae eiecta fuerat, congregabo; et ponam eos in laudem et in nomen in omni terra confusionis eorum,
20 in tempore illo, quo adducam vos, et in tempore, quo congregabo vos. Dabo enim vos in nomen et in laudem omnibus populis terrae, cum convertero sortem vestram coram oculis vestris", dicit Dominus.
King James Version
1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
2 She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.
3 Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
4 Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.
5 The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.
6 I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant.
7 I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.
8 ¶ Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.
10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering.
11 In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.
12 I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.
13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
14 ¶ Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
15 The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.
16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.
17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
18 I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.
