The reign of the just one: the vanity of idols.
 Let the islands keep silence before me, and the nations take new strength: let them come near, and then speak, let us come near to judgment together.
Taceant ad me insulae, et gentes mutent fortitudinem; accedant, et tunc loquantur; simul ad judicium propinquemus.
 Who hath raised up the just one from the east, hath called him to follow him? he shall give the nations in his sight, and he shall rule over kings: he shall give them as the dust to his sword, as stubble driven by the wind, to his bow.
Quis suscitavit ab oriente Justum, vocavit eum ut sequeretur se? Dabit in conspectu ejus gentes, et reges obtinebit; dabit quasi pulverem gladio ejus, sicut stipulam vento raptam arcui ejus.
 He shall pursue them, he shall pass in peace, no path shall appear after his feet.
Persequetur eos, transibit in pace, semita in pedibus ejus non apparebit.
 Who hath wrought and done these things, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord, I am the first and the last.
Quia haec operatus est, et fecit, vocans generationes ab exordio? Ego Dominus, primus et novissimus ego sum.
 The islands saw it, and feared, the ends of the earth were astonished, they drew near, and came.
Viderunt insulae, et timuerunt; extrema terrae obstupuerunt, appropinquaverunt, et accesserunt.
 Every one shall help his neighbour, and shall say to his brother: Be of good courage.
Unusquisque proximo suo auxiliabitur, et fratri suo dicet : Confortare.
 The coppersmith striking with the hammer encouraged him that forged at that time, saying: It is ready for soldering: and he strengthened it with nails, that it should not be moved.
Confortavit faber aerarius percutiens malleo eum, qui cudebat tunc temporis, dicens : Glutino bonum est; et confortavit eum clavis, ut non moveretur.
 But thou Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend:
Et tu, Israel, serve meus, Jacob quem elegi, semen Abraham amici mei :
 In whom I have taken thee from the ends of the earth, and from the remote parts thereof have called thee, and said to thee: Thou art my servant, I have chosen thee, and have not cast thee away.
in quo apprehendi te ab extremis terrae, et a longinquis ejus vocavi te, et dixi tibi : Servus meus es tu, elegi te, et non abjeci te.
 Fear not, for I am with thee: turn not aside, for I am thy God: I have strengthened thee, and have helped thee, and the right hand of my just one hath upheld thee.
Ne timeas, quia ego tecum sum; ne declines, quia ego Deus tuus; confortavi te, et auxiliatus sum tibi, et suscepit te dextera Justi mei.
 Behold all that fight against thee shall be confounded and ashamed, they shall be as nothing, and the men shall perish that strive against thee.
Ecce confundentur et erubescent omnes qui pugnant adversum te; erunt quasi non sint, et peribunt viri qui contradicunt tibi.
 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find the men that resist thee: they shall be as nothing: and as a thing consumed the men that war against thee.
Quaeres eos, et non invenies, viros rebelles tuos; erunt quasi non sint, et veluti consumptio homines bellantes adversum te.
 For I am the Lord thy God, who take thee by the hand, and say to thee: Fear not, I have helped thee.
Quia ego Dominus Deus tuus, apprehendens manum tuam, dicensque tibi : Ne timeas; ego adjuvi te.
 Fear not, thou worm of Jacob, you that are dead of Israel: I have helped thee, saith the Lord: and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel.
Noli timere, vermis Jacob, qui mortui estis ex Israel; ego auxiliatus sum tibi, dicit Dominus, et redemptor tuus Sanctus Israel.
 I have made thee as a new thrashing wain, with teeth like a saw: thou shall thrash the mountains, and break them in pieces: and shalt make the hills as chaff.
Ego posui te quasi plaustrum triturans novum, habens rostra serrantia; triturabis montes, et comminues, et colles quasi pulverem pones.
 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the Lord, in the Holy One of Israel thou shalt be joyful.
Ventilabis eos, et ventus tollet, et turbo disperget eos; et tu exsultabis in Domino, in Sancto Israel laetaberis.
 The needy and the poor seek for waters, and there are none: their tongue hath been dry with thirst. I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
Egeni et pauperes quaerunt aquas, et non sunt; lingua eorum siti aruit. Ego Dominus exaudiam eos, Deus Israel, non derelinquam eos.
 I will open rivers in the high bills, and fountains in the midst of the plains: I will turn the desert into pools of waters, and the impassable land into streams of waters.
Aperiam in supinis collibus flumina, et in medio camporum fontes, ponam desertum in stagna aquarum, et terram inviam in rivos aquarum.
 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, and the thorn, and the myrtle, and the olive tree: I will set in the desert the fir tree, the elm, and the box tree together:
Dabo in solitudinem cedrum, et spinam, et myrtum, et lignum olivae; ponam in deserto abietem, ulmum, et buxum simul;
 That they may see and know, and consider, and understand together that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
ut videant et sciant, et recogitent, et intelligant pariter, quia manus Domini fecit hoc, et Sanctus Israel creavit illud.
 Bring your cause near, saith the Lord: bring hither, if you have any thing to allege, saith the King of Jacob.
Prope facite judicium vestrum, dicit Dominus; afferte, si quid forte habetis, dicit rex Jacob.
 Let them come, and tell us all things that are to come: tell us the former things what they were: and we will set our heart upon them, and shall know the latter end of them, and tell us the things that are to come.
Accedant, et nuntient nobis quaecumque ventura sunt; priora quae fuerunt nuntiate; et ponemus cor nostrum, et sciemus novissima eorum; et quae ventura sunt indicate nobis.
 shew the things that are to come hereafter, and we shall know that ye are gods. Do ye also good or evil, if you can: and let us speak, and see together.
Annuntiate quae ventura sunt in futurum, et sciemus quia dii estis vos; bene quoque aut male, si potestis, facite; et loquamur et videamus simul.
 Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of that which hath no being: he that hath chosen you is an abomination.
Ecce vos estis ex nihilo, et opus vestrum ex eo quod non est; abominatio est qui elegit vos.
 I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come from the rising of the sun: he shall call upon my name, and he shall make princes to be as dirt, and as the potter treading clay.
Suscitavi ab aquilone, et veniet ab ortu solis; vocabit nomen meum; et adducet magistratus quasi lutum, et velut plastes conculans humum.
 Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know: and from time of old, that we may say: Thou art just. There is none that sheweth, nor that foretelleth, nor that heareth your words.
Quis annuntiavit ab exordio ut sciamus, et a principio ut dicamus : Justus es? Non est neque annuntians, neque praedicens, neque audiens sermones vestros.
 The first shall say to Sion: Behold they are here, and to Jerusalem I will give an evangelist.
Primus ad Sion dicet : Ecce adsunt, et Jerusalem evangelistam dabo.
 And I saw, and there was no one even among them to consult, or who, when I asked, could answer a word.
Et vidi, et non erat neque ex istis quisquam qui iniret consilium, et interrogatus responderet verbum.
 Behold they are all in the wrong, and their works are vain: their idols are wind and vanity.
Ecce omnes injusti et vana opera eorum; ventus et inane simulacra eorum.
