Isaiah Chapter 27

Post by Ken M. Penner » October 12th, 2011, 9:13 am

153. Lord will slay the dragon (27:1)
27.1 Τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐπάξει Κύριος τὴν μάχαιραν τὴν ἁγίαν καὶ τὴν μεγάλην καὶ τὴν ἰσχυρὰν ἐπὶ τὸν δράκοντα ὄφιν φεύγοντα, ἐπὶ τὸν δράκοντα ὄφιν σκολιὸν καὶ ἀνελεῖ τὸν δράκοντα τὸν ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ.

154. Israel the beautiful vineyard (27:2-6)
2 Τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἀμπελὼν καλός· ἐπιθύμημα ἐξάρχειν κατʼ αὐτῆς. 3 ἐγὼ πόλις ἰσχυρά, πόλις πολιορκουμένη, μάτην ποτιῶ αὐτήν· ἁλώσεται γὰρ νυκτός, ἡμέρας δὲ πεσεῖται τὸ τεῖχος. 4 οὐκ ἔστιν ἣ οὐκ ἐπελάβετο αὐτῆς·

Τίς με θήσει καλάμην φυλάσσειν ἐν ἀγρῷ; διὰ τὴν πολεμίαν ταύτην ἠθέτηκα αὐτήν.

Τοίνυν διὰ τοῦτο ἐποίησεν Κύριος πάντα, ὅσα συνέταξεν Κύριος. κατακέκαυμαι, 5 βοήσονται οἱ ἐνοικοῦντες ἐν αὐτῇ, ποιήσωμεν εἰρήνην αὐτῷ, ποιήσωμεν εἰρήνην. 6 οἱ ἐρχόμενοι, τέκνα Ἰακώβ, βλαστήσει καὶ ἐξανθήσει Ἰσραήλ, καὶ ἐμπλησθήσεται ἡ οἰκουμένη τοῦ καρποῦ αὐτοῦ.

155. The slayer will be slain (27:7-11)
7 Μὴ ὡς αὐτὸς ἐπάταξεν, καὶ αὐτὸς οὗτος πληγήσεται, καὶ ὡς αὐτὸς ἀνεῖλεν, οὕτως ἀναιρεθήσεται; 8 μαχόμενιος καὶ ὀνειδίζων ἐξαποστέλλει αὐτούς· οὐ σοι ἦσθα ὁ μελετῶν τῷ πνεύματι τῷ σκληρῷ ἀνελεῖν αὐτοὺς πνεύματι θυμοῦ; 9 διὰ τοῦτο ἀφαιρεθήσεται ἡ ἀνομία Ἰακώβ, καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν ἡ εὐλογία αὐτοῦ, ὅταν ἀφέλωμαι αὐτοῦ τὴν ἁμαρτίαν, ὅταν θῶσιν πάντας τοὺς λίθους τῶν βωμῶν κατακεκομμένους ὡς κονίαν λεπτήν· καὶ οὐ μὴ μείνῃ τὰ δένδρα αὐτῶν, καὶ τὰ εἴδωλα αὐτῶν ἐκκεκομμένα ὥσπερ δρυμὸς μακράν. 10 τὸ κατοικούμενον ποίμνιον ἀνειμένον ἔσται ὡς ποίμνιον καταλελειμμένον· καὶ ἔσται πολὺν χρόνον εἰς βόσκημα, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἀναπαύσονται. 11 μετὰ πολὺ χρόνον οὐκ ἔσται ἐν αὐτῇ πᾶν χλωρὸν διὰ τὸ ξηρανθῆναι.

156. The destroyed sons of Israel will return (27:11-13)

Γυναῖκες ἐρχόμεναι ἀπὸ θέας, δεῦτε· οὐ γὰρ λαός ἐστιν ἔχων σύνεσιν, διὰ τοῦτο οὐ μὴ οἰκτιρήσει ὁ ποιήσας αὐτούς, οὐδὲ ὁ πλάσας αὐτοὺς οὐ μὴ ἐλεήσῃ.

12 Καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ συνταράξει Κύριος ἀπὸ τῆς διώρυγος τοῦ ποταμοῦ ἕως Ῥινοκορούρων, ὑμεῖς δὲ συναγάγετε τοὺς υἱοὺς Ἰσραήλ κατὰ ἕνα ἕνα. 13 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ σαλπιοῦσιν τῇ σάλπιγγι τῇ μεγάλῃ, καὶ ἥξουσιν οἱ ἀπολόμενοι ἐν τῇ χώρᾳ τῶν Ἀσσυρίων καὶ οἱ ἀπολόμενοι ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ προσκυνήσουσιν τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἅγιον ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ.

Isaiah Chapter 27 translation

Post by Ken M. Penner » October 15th, 2011, 6:19 am

153. Lord will slay the dragon (27:1)
27.1 On day, that Lord will bring the holy and great and mighty sword upon the dragon, fleeing serpent, upon the dragon, twisted serpent, and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea.

154. Israel the beautiful vineyard (27:2-6)
2 On that day, a vineyard will be beautiful, a desire to take the lead with it. 3 I am a mighty city, a besieged city; in vain I will water it, for it will be captured by night, and by day the wall will fall. 4 There is no city that did not seize it.

Who will set me as a stalk to keep watch in a field? I set it because of this warring city.

Accordingly, because of this, Lord did all that Lord ordained. I have been burned up. 5 Those dwelling in it will cry out: Let us make peace with him; let us make peace! 6 Those coming are children of Iakob; Israel will bud and bloom, and the inhabited world will be filled with his fruit.

155. The slayer will be slain (27:7-11)
7 As he himself struck will this one himself not also be struck? And as he himself slayed, so will he not be slain? 8 Fighting and reproaching, he sends them away. Were you not the one endeavouring for yourself by the harsh wind to slay them with a wind of anger? 9 Because of this, the lawlessness of Iakob will be taken away. And this is his praise, when I take away his sin, when they make all the stones of the altars crushed like fine dust, and their trees will not remain, and their idols will be cut out, just like a forest far away. 10 The inhabited flock will be neglected, like an abandoned flock, and for a long time it will be fodder and there they will rest. 11 After a long time, there will not be anything green in it, because it has been dried up.

156. The destroyed sons of Israel will return (27:11-13)
Women coming from a show, come! For there is no people that has intelligence. Because of this, the one who made them certainly will not have pity, and the one who formed them certainly will not show mercy.

12 And it will be on that day, that Lord will disturb from the channel of the river as far as Rhinokoroura. But you, gather the sons of Israel one by one. 13 And it will be on that day, that they will trumpet with the great trumpet and those destroyed in the country of the Assyrians and those destroyed in Egypt will come and worship Lord on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
