The Gentiles shall seek and find Christ, but the Jews will persecute him, and be rejected, only a remnant shall be reserved. The church shall multiply, and abound with graces.
1 They have sought me that before asked not for me, they have found me that sought me not. I said: Behold me, behold me, to a nation that did not call upon my name.
Quaesierunt me qui ante non interrogabant, invenerunt qui non quaesierunt me. Dixi : Ecce ego, ecce ego, ad gentem quae non invocabat nomen meum.
2 I have spread forth my hands all the day to an unbelieving people, who walk in a way that is not good after their own thoughts.
Expandi manus meas tota die ad populum incredulum, qui graditur in via non bona post cogitationes suas.
3 A people that continually provoke me to anger before my face: that immolate in gardens, and sacrifice upon bricks.
Populus qui ad iracundiam provocat me ante faciem meam semper; qui immolant in hortis, et sacrificant super lateres;
4 That dwell in sepulchres, and sleep in the temple of idols: that eat swine's flesh, and profane broth is in their vessels.
qui habitant in sepulchris, et in delubris idolorum dormiunt; qui comedunt carnem suillam, et jus profanum in vasis eorum;
5 That say: Depart from me, come not near me, because thou art unclean: these shall be smoke in my anger, a fire burning all the day.
qui dicunt : Recede a me, non appropinques mihi, quia immundus es. Isti fumus erunt in furore meo, ignis ardens tota die.
6 Behold it is written before me: I will not be silent, but I will render and repay into their bosom.
Ecce scriptum est coram me : Non tacebo, sed reddam, et retribuam in sinum eorum.
7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the Lord, who have sacrificed upon the mountains, and have reproached me upon the hills; and I will measure back their first work in their bosom.
Iniquitates vestras, et iniquitates patrum vestrorum simul, dicit Dominus; qui sacrificaverunt super montes, et super colles exprobraverunt mihi; et remetiar opus eorum primum in sinu eorum.
8 Thus saith the Lord: As if a grain be found in a cluster, and it be said: Destroy it not, because it is a blessing: so will I do for the sake of my servants, that I may not destroy the whole.
Haec dicit Dominus : Quomodo si inveniatur granum in botro, et dicatur : Ne dissipes illud, quoniam benedictio est, sic faciam propter servos meos, ut non disperdam totum.
9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Juda a possessor of my mountains: and my elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
Et educam de Jacob semen, et de Juda possidentem montes meos; et haereditabunt eam electi mei, et servi mei habitabunt ibi.
10 And the plains shall be turned to folds of flocks, and the valley of Achor into a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.
Et erunt campestria in caulas gregum, et vallis Achor in cubile armentorum, populo meo qui requisierunt me.
11 And you, that have forsaken the Lord, that have forgotten my holy mount, that set a table for fortune, and offer libations upon it,
Et vos qui dereliquistis Dominum, qui obliti estis montem sanctum meum, qui ponitis Fortunae mensam, et libatis super eam;
12 I will number you in the sword, and you shall all fall by slaughter: because I called and you did not answer: I spoke, and you did not hear: and you did evil in my eyes, and you have chosen the things that displease me.
numerabo vos in gladio, et omnes in caede corruetis : pro eo quod vocavi, et non respondistis; locutus sum, et non audistis; et faciebatis malum in oculis meis, et quae nolui elegistis.
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold my servants shall eat, and you shall be hungry: behold my servants shall drink, and you shall be thirsty.
Propter hoc haec dicit Dominus Deus : Ecce servi mei comedent, et vos esurietis; ecce servi mei bibent, et vos sitietis;
14 Behold my servants shall rejoice, and you shall be confounded: behold my servants shall praise for joyfulness of heart, and you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for grief of spirit.
ecce servi mei laetabuntur, et vos confundemini; ecce servi mei laudabunt prae exsultatione cordis, et vos clamabitis prae dolore cordis, et prae contritione spiritus ululabitis,
15 And you shall leave your name for an execration to my elect: and the Lord God shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name.
et dimittetis nomen vestrum in juramentum electis meis; et interficiet te Dominus Deus, et servos suos vocabit nomine alio :
16 In which he that is blessed upon the earth, shall be blessed in God, amen: and he that sweareth in the earth, shall swear by God, amen: because the former distresses are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.
in quo qui benedictus est super terram benedicetur in Deo amen, et qui jurat in terra jurabit in Deo amen; quia oblivioni traditae sunt angustiae priores, et quia absconditae sunt ab oculis meis.
17 For behold I create new heavens, and a new earth: and the former things shall not be in remembrance, and they shall not come upon the heart.
Ecce enim ego creo caelos novos, et terram novam; et non erunt in memoria priora, et non ascendent super cor.
18 But you shall be glad and rejoice for ever in these things, which I create: for behold I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and the people thereof joy.
Sed gaudebitis et exsultabitis usque in sempiternum in his quae ego creo : quia ecce ego creo Jerusalem exsultationem, et populum ejus gaudium.
19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people, and the voice of weeping shall no more be heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
Et exsultabo in Jerusalem, et gaudebo in populo meo, et non audietur in eo ultra vox fletus et vox clamoris.
20 There shall no more be an infant of days there, nor an old man that shall not fill up his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed.
Non erit ibi amplius infans dierum, et senex qui non impleat dies suos, quoniam puer centum annorum morietur, et peccator centum annorum maledictus erit.
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruits of them.
Et aedificabunt domos, et habitabunt; et plantabunt vineas, et comedent fructus earum.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of my people, and the works of their hands shall be of long continuance.
Non aedificabunt, et alius habitabit; non plantabunt, et alius comedet : secundum enim dies ligni erunt dies populi mei, et opera manuum eorum inveterabunt.
23 My elect shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth in trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their posterity with them.
Electi mei non laborabunt frustra, neque generabunt in conturbatione, quia semen benedictorum Domini est, et nepotes eorum cum eis.
24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will hear; as they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Eritque antequam clament, ego exaudiam; adhuc illis loquentibus, ego audiam.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together; the lion and the ox shall eat straw; and dust shall be the serpent's food: they shall not hurt nor kill in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.
Lupus et agnus pascentur simul, leo et bos comedent paleas, et serpenti pulvis panis ejus. Non nocebunt, neque occident in omni monte sancto meo, dicit Dominus.
