God invites all to keep his commandments: the Gentiles that keep them shall be the people of God: the Jewish pastors are reproved.
1 Thus saith the Lord: Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my justice to be revealed.
Haec dicit Dominus : Custodite judicium, et facite justitiam, quia juxta est salus mea ut veniat, et justitia mea ut reveletur.
2 Blessed is the man that doth this, and the son of man that shall lay hold on this: that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, that keepeth his hands from doing any evil.
Beatus vir qui facit hoc, et filius hominis qui apprehendet istud, custodiens sabbatum ne polluat illud, custodiens manus suas ne faciat omne malum.
3 And let not the son of the stranger, that adhereth to the Lord, speak, saying: The Lord will divide and separate me from his people. And let not the eunuch say: Behold I am a dry tree.
Et non dicat filius advenae, qui adhaeret Domino, dicens : Separatione dividet me Dominus a populo suo; et non dicat eunuchus : Ecce ego lignum aridum.
4 For thus saith the Lord to the eunuchs, They that shall keep my sabbaths, and shall choose the things that please me, and shall hold fast my covenant:
Quia haec dicit Dominus eunuchis : Qui custodierint sabbata mea, et elegerint quae ego volui, et tenuerint foedus meum,
5 I will give to them in my house, and within my walls, a place, and a name better than sons and daughters: I will give them an everlasting name which shall never perish.
dabo eis in domo mea et in muris meis locum, et nomen melius a filiis et filiabus : nomen sempiternum dabo eis, quod non peribit.
6 And the children of the stranger that adhere to the Lord, to worship him, and to love his name, to be his servants: every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and that holdeth fast my covenant:
Et filios advenae, qui adhaerent Domino, ut colant eum, et diligant nomen ejus, ut sint ei in servos; omnem custodientem sabbatum ne polluat illud, et tenentem foedus meum;
7 I will bring them into my holy mount, and will make them joyful in my house of prayer: their holocausts, and their victims shall please me upon my altar: for my house shall be called the house of prayer, for all nations.
adducam eos in montem sanctum meum et laetificabo eos in domo orationis meae; holocausta eorum et victimae eorum placebunt mihi super altari meo, quia domus mea domus orationis vocabitur cunctis populis.
8 The Lord God, who gathereth the scattered of Israel, saith: I will still gather unto him his congregation.
Ait Dominus Deus, qui congregat dispersos Israel : Adhuc congregabo ad eum congregatos ejus.
9 All ye beasts of the field come to devour, all ye beasts of the forest.
Omnes bestiae agri, venite ad devorandum, universae bestiae saltus.
10 His watchmen are all blind, they are all ignorant: dumb dogs not able to bark, seeing vain things, sleeping and loving dreams.
Speculatores ejus caeci omnes, nescierunt universi : canes muti non valentes latrare, videntes vana, dormientes, et amantes somnia.
11 And meet impudent dogs, they never had enough: the shepherds themselves knew no understanding: all have turned aside into their own way, every one after his own gain, from the first even to the last.
Et canes imprudentissimi, nescierunt saturitatem; ipsi pastores ignoraverunt intelligentiam; omnes in viam suam declinaverunt; unusquisque ad avaritiam suam, a summo usque ad novissimum.
12 Come, let us take wine, and be filled with drunkenness: and it shall be as today, so also tomorrow, and much more.
Venite, sumamus vinum, et impleamur ebrietate; et erit sicut hodie, sic et cras, et multo amplius.
