|1||Οὐαὶ τοῖς ἐξουθενοῦσιν Σιων καὶ τοῖς πεποιθόσιν ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος Σαμαρείας· ἀπετρύγησαν ἀρχὰς ἐθνῶν, καὶ εἰσῆλθον αὐτοί. οἶκος τοῦ Ισραηλ,
||Woe to them that set at nought Sion and that trust in the mountain of Samaria: they have gathered [the harvest of] the heads of the nations and they have gone in themselves.||The destruction of Israel. Am.6.1-14|
|2||διάβητε πάντες καὶ ἴδετε καὶ διέλθατε ἐκεῖθεν εἰς Εμαθ Ραββα καὶ κατάβητε ἐκεῖθεν εἰς Γεθ ἀλλοφύλων, τὰς κρατίστας ἐκ πασῶν τῶν βασιλειῶν τούτων, εἰ πλέονα τὰ ὅρια αὐτῶν ἐστιν τῶν ὑμετέρων ὁρίων.
||O house of Israel pass by all [of you] and see; and pass by thence to Ematrabba; and thence descend to Geth of the Philistines the chief of all these kingdoms [see] if their coasts are greater than your coasts.|| |
|3||οἱ ἐρχόμενοι εἰς ἡμέραν κακήν, οἱ ἐγγίζοντες καὶ ἐφαπτόμενοι σαββάτων ψευδῶν,
||Ye who are approaching the evil day who are drawing near and adopting false sabbaths;|| |
|4||οἱ καθεύδοντες ἐπὶ κλινῶν ἐλεφαντίνων καὶ κατασπαταλῶντες ἐπὶ ταῖς στρωμναῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἔσθοντες ἐρίφους ἐκ ποιμνίων καὶ μοσχάρια ἐκ μέσου βουκολίων γαλαθηνά,
||who sleep upon beds of ivory and live delicately on their couches and eat kids out of the flocks and sucking calves out of the midst of the stalls;|| |
|5||οἱ ἐπικροτοῦντες πρὸς τὴν φωνὴν τῶν ὀργάνων ὡς ἑστῶτα ἐλογίσαντο καὶ οὐχ ὡς φεύγοντα·
||who excel in the sound of musical instruments; they have regarded them as abiding not as fleeting [pleasures];|| |
|6||οἱ πίνοντες τὸν διυλισμένον οἶνον καὶ τὰ πρῶτα μύρα χριόμενοι καὶ οὐκ ἔπασχον οὐδὲν ἐπὶ τῇ συντριβῇ Ιωσηφ.
||who drink strained wine and anoint themselves with the best ointment; and have suffered nothing on occasion of the calamity of Joseph.|| |
|7||διὰ τοῦτο νῦν αἰχμάλωτοι ἔσονται ἀπ' ἀρχῆς δυναστῶν, καὶ ἐξαρθήσεται χρεμετισμὸς ἵππων ἐξ Εφραιμ.
||Therefore now shall they depart into captivity from the dominion of princes and the neighing of horses shall be cut off from Ephraim.|| |
|8||ὅτι ὤμοσεν κύριος καθ' ἑαυτοῦ Διότι βδελύσσομαι ἐγὼ πᾶσαν τὴν ὕβριν Ιακωβ καὶ τὰς χώρας αὐτοῦ μεμίσηκα, καὶ ἐξαρῶ πόλιν σὺν πᾶσιν τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν αὐτήν·
||For the Lord has sworn by himself [saying] Because I abhor all the pride of Jacob I do also hate his countries and I will cut off [his] city with all who inhabit it.|| |
|9||καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν ὑπολειφθῶσιν δέκα ἄνδρες ἐν οἰκίᾳ μιᾷ, καὶ ἀποθανοῦνται, καὶ ὑπολειφθήσονται οἱ κατάλοιποι,
||And it shall come to pass if there be ten men left in one house that they shall die.|| |
|10||καὶ λήμψονται οἱ οἰκεῖοι αὐτῶν καὶ παραβιῶνται τοῦ ἐξενέγκαι τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτῶν ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου· καὶ ἐρεῖ τοῖς προεστηκόσι τῆς οἰκίας Εἰ ἔτι ὑπάρχει παρὰ σοί; καὶ ἐρεῖ Οὐκέτι· καὶ ἐρεῖ Σίγα, ἕνεκα τοῦ μὴ ὀνομάσαι τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου.
||But a remnant shall be left behind and their relations shall take them and shall strenuously endeavor to carry forth their bones from the house: and one shall say to the heads of the house Is there yet [any one] else with thee? And he shall say No [one] e|| |
|11||διότι ἰδοὺ κύριος ἐντέλλεται καὶ πατάξει τὸν οἶκον τὸν μέγαν θλάσμασιν καὶ τὸν οἶκον τὸν μικρὸν ῥάγμασιν.
||For behold the Lord commands and he will smite the great house with breaches and the little house with rents.|| |
|12||εἰ διώξονται ἐν πέτραις ἵπποι; εἰ παρασιωπήσονται ἐν θηλείαις; ὅτι ὑμεῖς ἐξεστρέψατε εἰς θυμὸν κρίμα καὶ καρπὸν δικαιοσύνης εἰς πικρίαν,
||Will horses run upon rocks? will they refrain from neighing at mares? for ye have turned judgment into poison and the fruit of righteousness into bitterness:|| |
|13||οἱ εὐφραινόμενοι ἐπ' οὐδενὶ λόγῳ, οἱ λέγοντες Οὐκ ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι ἡμῶν ἔσχομεν κέρατα;
||ye who rejoice at vanity who say Have we not possessed horns by our own strength?|| |
|14||διότι ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπεγείρω ἐφ' ὑμᾶς, οἶκος τοῦ Ισραηλ, ἔθνος, καὶ ἐκθλίψουσιν ὑμᾶς τοῦ μὴ εἰσελθεῖν εἰς Εμαθ καὶ ἕως τοῦ χειμάρρου τῶν δυσμῶν.
||For behold O house of Israel I will raise up against you a nation saith the Lord of hosts; and they shall afflict you so that ye shall not enter into Aemath and as it were [from] the river of the wilderness.|| |
