The Gentiles, who were barren before, shall multiply in the church of Christ: from which God's mercy shall never depart.
1 Give praise, O thou barren, that bearest not: sing forth praise, and make a joyful noise, thou that didst not travail with child: for many are the children of the desolate, more than of her that hath a husband, saith the Lord.
Lauda, sterilis, quae non paris; decanta laudem, et hinni, quae non pariebas : quoniam multi filii desertae magis quam ejus quae habet virum, dicit Dominus.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and stretch out the skins of thy tabernacles, spare not: lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.
Dilata locum tentorii tui, et pelles tabernaculorum tuorum extende, ne parcas; longos fac funiculos tuos, et clavos tuos consolida.
3 For thou shalt pass on to the right hand, and to the left: and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and shall inhabit the desolate cities.
Ad dexteram enim et ad laevam penetrabis, et semen tuum gentes haereditabit, et civitates desertas inhabitabit.
4 Fear not, for thou shalt not be confounded, nor blush: for thou shalt not be put to shame, because thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt remember no more the reproach of thy widowhood.
Noli timere, quia non confunderis, neque erubesces; non enim te pudebit, quia confusionis adolescentiae tuae oblivisceris, et opprobrii viduitatis tuae non recordaberis amplius.
5 For he that made thee shall rule over thee, the Lord of hosts is his name: and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, shall be called the God of all the earth.
Quia dominabitur tui qui fecit te, Dominus exercituum nomen ejus, et redemptor tuus, Sanctus Israel, Deus omnis terrae vocabitur.
6 For the Lord hath called thee as woman forsaken and mourning in spirit, and as a wife cast off from her youth, said thy God.
Quia et mulierem derelictam et moerentem spiritu vocavit te Dominus, et uxorem ab adolescentia abjectam, dixit Deus tuus.
7 For a, small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee.
Ad punctum in modico dereliqui te, et in miserationibus magnis congregabo te.
8 In a moment of indignation have I hid my face a little while from thee, but with everlasting kindness have I had mercy on thee, said the Lord thy Redeemer.
In momento indignationis abscondi faciem meam parumper a te; et in misericordia sempiterna misertus sum tui, dixit redemptor tuus, Dominus.
9 This thing is to me as in the days of Noe, to whom I swore, that I would no more bring in the waters of Noe upon the earth: so have I sworn not to be angry with thee, and not to rebuke thee.
Sicut in diebus Noe istud mihi est, cui juravi ne inducerem aquas Noe ultra super terram; sic juravi ut non irascar tibi, et non increpem te.
10 For the mountains shall be moved, and the hills shall tremble; but my mercy shall not depart from thee, and the covenant of my peace shall not be moved: said the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
Montes enim commovebuntur, et colles contremiscent; misericordia autem mea non recedet a te, et foedus pacis meae non movebitur, dixit miserator tuus Dominus.
11 O poor little one, tossed with tempest, without all comfort, behold I will lay thy stones in order, and will lay thy foundations with sapphires,
Paupercula, tempestate convulsa absque ulla consolatione, ecce ego sternam per ordinem lapides tuos, et fundabo te in sapphiris;
12 And I will make thy bulwarks of jasper: and thy gates of graven stones, and all thy borders of desirable stones.
et ponam jaspidem propugnacula tua; et portas tuas in lapides sculptos, et omnes terminos tuos in lapides desiderabiles;
13 All thy children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of thy children.
universos filios tuos doctos a Domino, et multitudinem pacis filiis tuis.
14 And thou shalt be founded in justice: depart far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.
Et in justitia fundaberis : recede procul a calumnia, quia non timebis; et a pavore, quia non appropinquabit tibi.
15 Behold, an inhabitant shall come, who was not with me, he that was a stranger to thee before, shall be joined to thee.
Ecce accola veniet qui non erat mecum, advena quondam tuus adjungetur tibi.
16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and bringeth forth an instrument for his work, and I have created the killer to destroy.
Ecce ego creavi fabrum sufflantem in igne prunas, et proferentem vas in opus suum; et ego creavi interfectorem ad disperdendum.
17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper: and every tongue that resisteth thee in judgment, thou shalt condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of the Lord, and their justice with me, saith the Lord.
Omne vas quod fictum est contra te, non dirigetur; et omnem linguam resistentem tibi in judicio, judicabis. Haec est haereditas servorum Domini; et justitia eorum apud me, dicit Dominus.
