 katapi NEW STUDY BIBLEIsaiah:1 >>Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. ISAIAH. Jerusalem - 8thcent.bce. Is.1.1 (Jerusalem) - 740bceחֲזֹון יְשַׁעְיָהוּ בֶן־אָמֹוץ אֲשֶׁר חָזָה עַל־יְהוּדָה וִירוּשָׁלִָם בִּימֵי עֻזִּיָּהוּ יֹותָם אָחָז יְחִזְקִיָּהוּ מַלְכֵי יְהוּדָה׃
2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth;
for Yahweh has spoken:
"Sons have I reared and brought up,
but they have rebelled against me.
God reprimands his people. Is.1.2-20שִׁמְעוּ שָׁמַיִם וְהַאֲזִינִי אֶרֶץ כִּי יְהוָה דִּבֵּר
בָּנִים גִּדַּלְתִּי וְרֹומַמְתִּי וְהֵם פָּשְׁעוּ בִי׃
3 The ox knows its owner,
and the ass its master's crib;
but Israel does not know,
my people does not understand."
 יָדַע שֹׁור קֹנֵהוּ וַחֲמֹור אֵבוּס בְּעָלָיו
יִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא יָדַע עַמִּי לֹא הִתְבֹּוןָן׃
4 Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity,
offspring of evildoers, sons who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken Yahweh,
they have despised the Holy One of Israel,
they are utterly estranged.
 הֹוי גֹּוי חֹטֵא עַם כֶּבֶד עָוֹן
זֶרַע מְרֵעִים בָּנִים מַשְׁחִיתִים
עָזְבוּ אֶת־יְהוָה נִאֲצוּ אֶת־קְדֹושׁ יִשְׂרָאֵל נָזֹרוּ אָחֹור׃
5 Why will you still be smitten,
that you continue to rebel?
The whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.
 עַל מֶה תֻכּוּ עֹוד תֹּוסִיפוּ סָרָה
כָּל־רֹאשׁ לָחֳלִי וְכָל־לֵבָב דַּוָּי׃
6 From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it,
but bruises and sores and bleeding wounds;
they are not pressed out, or bound up,
or softened with oil.
 מִכַּף־רֶגֶל וְעַד־רֹאשׁ אֵין־בֹּו מְתֹם
פֶּצַע וְחַבּוּרָה וּמַכָּה טְרִיָּה
לֹא־זֹרוּ וְלֹא חֻבָּשׁוּ וְלֹא רֻכְּכָה בַּשָּׁמֶן׃
7 Your country lies desolate,
your cities are burned with fire;
in your very presence
aliens devour your land;
it is desolate,
as overthrown by aliens.
 אַרְצְכֶם שְׁמָמָה עָרֵיכֶם שְׂרֻפֹות אֵשׁ אַדְמַתְכֶם לְנֶגְדְּכֶם זָרִים אֹכְלִים אֹתָהּ וּשְׁמָמָה כְּמַהְפֵּכַת זָרִים׃
8 And the daughter of Zion is left
like a booth in a vineyard,
like a lodge in a cucumber field,
like a besieged city.
 וְנֹותְרָה בַת־צִיֹּון כְּסֻכָּה בְכָרֶם
כִּמְלוּנָה בְמִקְשָׁה כְּעִיר נְצוּרָה׃
9 If Yahweh of hosts
had not left us a few survivors,
we should have been like Sodom,
and become like Gomorrah.
 לוּלֵי יְהוָה צְבָאֹות הֹותִיר לָנוּ שָׂרִיד כִּמְעָט
כִּסְדֹם הָיִינוּ לַעֲמֹרָה דָּמִינוּ׃ ס
10 Hear the word of Yahweh,
you rulers of Sodom!
Give ear to the teaching of our God,
you people of Gomorrah!
 שִׁמְעוּ דְבַר־יְהוָה קְצִינֵי סְדֹם
הַאֲזִינוּ תֹּורַת אֱלֹהֵינוּ עַם עֲמֹרָה׃
11 "What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?
says Yahweh;
I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
and the fat of fed beasts;
I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
or of lambs, or of he-goats.
 לָמָּה־לִּי רֹב־זִבְחֵיכֶם יֹאמַר יְהוָה
שָׂבַעְתִּי עֹלֹות אֵילִים וְחֵלֶב מְרִיאִים
וְדַם פָּרִים וּכְבָשִׂים וְעַתּוּדִים לֹא חָפָצְתִּי׃
12 "When you come to appear before me,
who requires of you this trampling of my courts?
 כִּי תָבֹאוּ לֵרָאֹות פָּנָי
מִי־בִקֵּשׁ זֹאת מִיֶּדְכֶם רְמֹס חֲצֵרָי׃
13 Bring no more vain offerings;
incense is an abomination to me.
New moon and sabbath and the calling of assemblies -
I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly.
 לֹא תֹוסִיפוּ הָבִיא מִנְחַת־שָׁוְא קְטֹרֶת תֹּועֵבָה הִיא לִי חֹדֶשׁ וְשַׁבָּת קְרֹא מִקְרָא לֹא־אוּכַל אָוֶן וַעֲצָרָה׃
14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts
my soul hates;
they have become a burden to me,
I am weary of bearing them.
 חָדְשֵׁיכֶם וּמֹועֲדֵיכֶם שָׂנְאָה נַפְשִׁי
הָיוּ עָלַי לָטֹרַח נִלְאֵיתִי נְשֹׂא׃
15 When you spread forth your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood.
 וּבְפָרִשְׂכֶם כַּפֵּיכֶם אַעְלִים עֵינַי םִכֶּם
גַּם כִּי־תַרְבּוּ תְפִלָּה אֵינֶנִּי שֹׁמֵעַ
יְדֵיכֶם דָּמִים מָלֵאוּ׃
16 Wash yourselves;
make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes;
cease to do evil,
 רַחֲצוּ הִזַּכּוּ
הָסִירוּ רֹעַ מַעַלְלֵיכֶם מִנֶּגֶד עֵינָי
חִדְלוּ הָרֵעַ׃
17 learn to do good;
seek justice, correct oppression;
defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.
 לִמְדוּ הֵיטֵב
דִּרְשׁוּ מִשְׁפָּט אַשְּׁרוּ חָמֹוץ
שִׁפְטוּ יָתֹום רִיבוּ אַלְמָנָה׃ ס
18 "Come now, let us reason together,
says Yahweh:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
 לְכוּ־נָא וְנִוָּכְחָה יֹאמַר יְהוָה
אִם־יִהְיוּ חֲטָאֵיכֶם כַּשָּׁנִים כַּשֶּׁלֶג יַלְבִּינוּ
אִם־יַאְדִּימוּ כַתֹּולָע כַּצֶּמֶר יִהְיוּ׃
19 If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land;
 אִם־תֹּאבוּ וּשְׁמַעְתֶּם טוּב הָאָרֶץ תֹּאכֵלוּ׃
20 But if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be devoured by the sword;
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken."
 וְאִם־תְּמָאֲנוּ וּמְרִיתֶם חֶרֶב תְּאֻכְּלוּ כִּי פִּי יְהוָה דִּבֵּר׃ ס
21 How the faithful city has become a harlot,
she that was full of justice!
Righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers.
The sinful city. Is.1.21-31אֵיכָה הָיְתָה לְזֹונָה קִרְיָה נֶאֱמָנָה
מְלֵאֲתִי מִשְׁפָּט צֶדֶק יָלִין בָּהּ וְעַתָּה מְרַצְּחִים׃
22 Your silver has become dross,
your wine mixed with water.
 כַּסְפֵּךְ הָיָה לְסִיגִים סָבְאֵךְ מָהוּל בַּמָּיִם׃
23 Your princes are rebels and companions of thieves.
Every one loves a bribe and runs after gifts.
They do not defend the fatherless,
and the widow's cause does not come to them.
 שָׂרַיִךְ סֹורְרִים וְחַבְרֵי גַּנָּבִים
כֻּלֹּו אֹהֵב שֹׁחַד וְרֹדֵף שַׁלְמֹנִים
יָתֹום לֹא יִשְׁפֹּטוּ וְרִיב אַלְמָנָה לֹא־יָבֹוא אֲלֵיהֶם׃ ף
24 Therefore says the Lord,
Yahweh of hosts,
the Mighty One of Israel:
"Ah, I will vent my wrath on my enemies,
and avenge myself on my foes.
 לָכֵן
נְאֻם הָאָדֹון יְהוָה צְבָאֹות אֲבִיר יִשְׂרָאֵל
הֹוי אֶנָּחֵם מִצָּרַי וְאִנָּקְמָה מֵאֹויְבָי׃
25 I will turn my hand against you
and will smelt away your dross as with lye
and remove all your alloy.
 וְאָשִׁיבָה יָדִי עָלַיִךְ וְאֶצְרֹף כַּבֹּר סִיגָיִךְ וְאָסִירָה כָּל־בְּדִילָיִךְ׃
26 And I will restore your judges as at the first,
and your counselors as at the beginning.
Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness,
the faithful city."
 וְאָשִׁיבָה שֹׁפְטַיִךְ כְּבָרִאשֹׁנָה וְיֹעֲצַיִךְ כְּבַתְּחִלָּה
אַחֲרֵי־כֵן יִקָּרֵא לָךְ עִיר הַצֶּדֶק קִרְיָה נֶאֱמָנָה׃
27 Zion shall be redeemed by justice,
and those in her who repent, by righteousness.
 צִיֹּון בְּמִשְׁפָּט תִּפָּדֶה וְשָׁבֶיהָ בִּצְדָקָה׃
28 But rebels and sinners shall be destroyed together,
and those who forsake Yahweh shall be consumed.
 וְשֶׁבֶר פֹּשְׁעִים וְחַטָּאִים יַחְדָּו וְעֹזְבֵי יְהוָה יִכְלוּ׃
29 For you shall be ashamed of the oaks in which you delighted;
and you shall blush for the gardens which you have chosen.
 כִּי יֵבֹשׁוּ מֵאֵילִים אֲשֶׁר חֲמַדְתֶּם
וְתַחְפְּרוּ מֵהַגַּנֹּות אֲשֶׁר בְּחַרְתֶּם׃
30 For you shall be like an oak whose leaf withers,
and like a garden without water.
 כִּי תִהְיוּ כְּאֵלָה נֹבֶלֶת עָלֶהָ
וּכְגַנָּה אֲשֶׁר־מַיִם אֵין לָהּ׃
31 And the strong shall become tow,
and his work a spark,
and both of them shall burn together,
with none to quench them.
 וְהָיָה הֶחָסֹן לִנְעֹרֶת וּפֹעֲלֹו לְנִיצֹוץ
וּבָעֲרוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם יַחְדָּו וְאֵין מְכַבֶּה׃ ס

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
