Ezra 9 Text (WEB)
  1. Now when these things were done, the princes drew near to me, saying, "The people of Israel, and the priests and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, [doing] according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
  2. For they have taken of their daughters for themselves and for their sons, so that the holy seed have mixed themselves with the peoples of the lands. Yes, the hand of the princes and rulers has been chief in this trespass."
  3. When I heard this thing, I tore my garment and my robe, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down confounded.
  4. Then were assembled to me everyone who trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the trespass of them of the captivity; and I sat confounded until the evening offering.
  5. At the evening offering I arose up from my humiliation, even with my garment and my robe torn; and I fell on my knees, and spread out my hands to Yahweh my God;
  6. and I said, "My God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to you, my God; for our iniquities have increased over our head, and our guiltiness has grown up to the heavens.
  7. Since the days of our fathers we have been exceeding guilty to this day; and for our iniquities we, our kings, and our priests, have been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, to plunder, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.
  8. Now for a little moment grace has been shown from Yahweh our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
  9. For we are bondservants; yet our God has not forsaken us in our bondage, but has extended loving kindness to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
  10. "Now, our God, what shall we say after this? For we have forsaken your commandments,
  11. which you have commanded by your servants the prophets, saying, 'The land, to which you go to possess it, is an unclean land through the uncleanness of the peoples of the lands, through their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their filthiness.
  12. Now therefore don't give your daughters to their sons, neither take their daughters to your sons, nor seek their peace or their prosperity forever; that you may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children forever.'
  13. "After all that has come on us for our evil deeds, and for our great guilt, since you, our God, have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such a remnant,
  14. shall we again break your commandments, and join in affinity with the peoples that do these abominations? Wouldn't you be angry with us until you had consumed us, so that there should be no remnant, nor any to escape?
  15. Yahweh, the God of Israel, you are righteous; for we are left a remnant that has escaped, as it is this day. Behold, we are before you in our guiltiness; for none can stand before you because of this."
Ezra 9 Text (Hebrew)
  1. וככלות אלה נגשו אלי השרים לאמר לא־נבדלו העם ישראל והכהנים והלוים מעמי הארצות כתועבתיהם לכנעני החתי הפרזי היבוסי העמני המאבי המצרי והאמרי׃
  2. כי־נשאו מבנתיהם להם ולבניהם והתערבו זרע הקדש בעמי הארצות ויד השרים והסגנים היתה במעל הזה ראשונה׃ ס
  3. וכשמעי את־הדבר הזה קרעתי את־בגדי ומעילי ואמרטה משער ראשי וזקני ואשבה משוםם׃
  4. ואלי יאספו כל חרד בדברי אלהי־ישראל על מעל הגולה ואני ישב משוםם עד למנחת הערב׃
  5. ובמנחת הערב קמתי מתעניתי ובקרעי בגדי ומעילי ואכרעה על־ברכי ואפרשה כפי אל־יהוה אלהי׃
  6. ואמרה אלהי בשתי ונכלמתי להרים אלהי פני אליך כי עונתינו רבו למעלה ראש ואשמתנו גדלה עד לשמים׃
  7. מימי אבתינו אנחנו באשמה גדלה עד היום הזה ובעונתינו נתנו אנחנו מלכינו כהנינו ביד מלכי הארצות בחרב בשבי ובבזה ובבשת פנים כהיום הזה׃
  8. ועתה כמעט־רגע היתה תחנה מאת יהוה אלהינו להשאיר לנו פליטה ולתת־לנו יתד במקום קדשו להאיר עינינו אלהינו ולתתנו מחיה מעט בעבדתנו׃
  9. כי־עבדים אנחנו ובעבדתנו לא עזבנו אלהינו ויט־עלינו חסד לפני מלכי פרס לתת־לנו מחיה לרוםם את־בית אלהינו ולהעמיד את־חרבתיו ולתת־לנו גדר ביהודה ובירושלם׃ ס
  10. ועתה מה־נאמר אלהינו אחרי־זאת כי עזבנו מצותיך׃
  11. אשר צוית ביד עבדיך הנביאים לאמר הארץ אשר אתם באים לרשתה ארץ נדה היא בנדת עמי הארצות בתועבתיהם אשר מלאוה מפה אל־פה בטמאתם׃
  12. ועתה בנותיכם אל־תתנו לבניהם ובנתיהם אל־תשאו לבניכם ולא־תדרשו שלםם וטובתם עד־עולם למען תחזקו ואכלתם את־טוב הארץ והורשתם לבניכם עד־עולם׃
  13. ואחרי כל־הבא עלינו במעשינו הרעים ובאשמתנו הגדלה כי אתה אלהינו חשכת למטה מעוננו ונתתה לנו פליטה כזאת׃
  14. הנשוב להפר מצותיך ולהתחתן בעמי התעבות האלה הלוא תאנף־בנו עד־כלה לאין שארית ופליטה׃ ף
  15. יהוה אלהי ישראל צדיק אתה כי־נשארנו פליטה כהיום הזה הננו לפניך באשמתינו כי אין לעמוד לפניך על־זאת׃ ף
Ezra 9 Text (Greek)
  1. και ως ετελεσθη ταυτα ηγγισαν προς με οι αρχοντες λεγοντες ουκ εχωρισθη ο λαος ισραηλ και οι ιερεις και οι λευιται απο λαων των γαιων εν μακρυμμασιν αυτων τω χανανι ο εθι ο φερεζι ο ιεβουσι ο αμμωνι ο μωαβι ο μοσερι και ο
  2. οτι ελαβοσαν απο θυγατερων αυτων εαυτοις και τοις υιοις αυτων και παρηχθη σπερμα το αγιον εν λαοις των γαιων και χειρ των αρχοντων εν τη ασυνθεσια ταυτη εν
  3. και ως ηκουσα τον λογον τουτον διερρηξα τα ιματια μου και επαλλομην και ετιλλον απο των τριχων της κεφαλης μου και απο του πωγωνος μου και εκαθημην
  4. και συνηχθησαν προς με πας ο διωκων λογον θεου ισραηλ επι ασυνθεσια της αποικιας και εγω καθημενος ηρεμαζων εως της θυσιας της
  5. και εν θυσια τη εσπερινη ανεστην απο ταπεινωσεως μου και εν τω διαρρηξαι με τα ιματια μου και επαλλομην και κλινω επι τα γονατα μου και εκπεταζω τας χειρας μου προς κυριον τον
  6. και ειπα κυριε ησχυνθην και ενετραπην του υψωσαι το προσωπον μου προς σε οτι αι ανομιαι ημων επληθυνθησαν υπερ κεφαλης ημων και αι πλημμελειαι ημων εμεγαλυνθησαν εως εις
  7. απο ημερων πατερων ημων εσμεν εν πλημμελεια μεγαλη εως της ημερας ταυτης και εν ταις ανομιαις ημων παρεδοθημεν ημεις και οι βασιλεις ημων και οι υιοι ημων εν χειρι βασιλεων των εθνων εν ρομφαια και εν αιχμαλωσια και εν διαρπαγη και εν αισχυνη προσωπου ημων ως η ημερα
  8. και νυν επιεικευσατο ημιν κυριος ο θεος ημων του καταλιπειν ημιν εις σωτηριαν και δουναι ημιν στηριγμα εν τοπω αγιασματος αυτου του φωτισαι οφθαλμους ημων και δουναι ζωοποιησιν μικραν εν τη δουλεια
  9. οτι δουλοι εσμεν και εν τη δουλεια ημων ουκ εγκατελιπεν ημας κυριος ο θεος ημων και εκλινεν εφ' ημας ελεος ενωπιον βασιλεων περσων δουναι ημιν ζωοποιησιν του υψωσαι αυτους τον οικον του θεου ημων και αναστησαι τα ερημα αυτης και του δουναι ημιν φραγμον εν ιουδα και εν
  10. τι ειπωμεν ο θεος ημων μετα τουτο οτι εγκατελιπομεν εντολας
  11. ας εδωκας ημιν εν χειρι δουλων σου των προφητων λεγων η γη εις ην εισπορευεσθε κληρονομησαι αυτην γη μετακινουμενη εστιν εν μετακινησει λαων των εθνων εν μακρυμμασιν αυτων ων επλησαν αυτην απο στοματος επι στομα εν ακαθαρσιαις
  12. και νυν τας θυγατερας υμων μη δωτε τοις υιοις αυτων και απο των θυγατερων αυτων μη λαβητε τοις υιοις υμων και ουκ εκζητησετε ειρηνην αυτων και αγαθον αυτων εως αιωνος οπως ενισχυσητε και φαγητε τα αγαθα της γης και κληροδοτησητε τοις υιοις υμων εως
  13. και μετα παν το ερχομενον εφ' ημας εν ποιημασιν ημων τοις πονηροις και εν πλημμελεια ημων τη μεγαλη οτι ουκ εστιν ως ο θεος ημων οτι εκουφισας ημων τας ανομιας και εδωκας ημιν
  14. οτι επεστρεψαμεν διασκεδασαι εντολας σου και επιγαμβρευσαι τοις λαοις των γαιων μη παροξυνθης εν ημιν εως συντελειας του μη ειναι εγκαταλειμμα και
  15. κυριε ο θεος ισραηλ δικαιος συ οτι κατελειφθημεν διασωζομενοι ως η ημερα αυτη ιδου ημεις εναντιον σου εν πλημμελειαις ημων οτι ουκ εστιν στηναι ενωπιον σου επι
Ezra 9 Text (Latin)
  1. Postquam autem hæc completa sunt, accesserunt ad me principes, dicentes : Non est separatus populus Israël, sacerdotes et Levitæ, a populis terrarum, et abominationibus eorum : Chananæi videlicet, et Hethæi, et Pherezæi, et Jebusæi, et Ammonitarum, et Moabitarum, et Ægyptiorum, et Amorrhæorum :
  2. tulerunt enim de filiabus eorum sibi et filiis suis, et commiscuerunt semen sanctum cum populis terrarum : manus etiam principum et magistratuum fuit in transgressione hac prima.
  3. Cumque audissem sermonem istum, scidi pallium meum et tunicam, et evelli capillos capitis mei et barbæ, et sedi mœrens.
  4. Convenerunt autem ad me omnes, qui timebant verbum Dei Israël, pro transgressione eorum qui de captivitate venerant, et ego sedebam tristis usque ad sacrificium vespertinum :
  5. et in sacrificio vespertino, surrexi de afflictione mea, et scisso pallio et tunica, curvavi genua mea, et expandi manus meas ad Dominum Deum meum.
  6. Et dixi : Deus meus, confundor et erubesco levare faciem meam ad te : quoniam iniquitates nostræ multiplicatæ sunt super caput nostrum, et delicta nostra creverunt usque ad cælum,
  7. a diebus patrum nostrorum : sed et nos ipsi peccavimus graviter usque ad diem hanc, et in iniquitatibus nostris traditi sumus ipsi, et reges nostri, et sacerdotes nostri in manum regum terrarum, et in gladium, et in captivitatem, et in rapinam, et in confusionem vultus, sicut et die hac.
  8. Et nunc quasi parum et ad momentum facta est deprecatio nostra apud Dominum Deum nostrum, ut dimitterentur nobis reliquiæ, et daretur nobis paxillus in loco sancto ejus, et illuminaret oculos nostros Deus noster, et daret nobis vitam modicam in servitute nostra,
  9. quia servi sumus, et in servitute nostra non dereliquit nos Deus noster, sed inclinavit super nos misericordiam coram rege Persarum, ut daret nobis vitam, et sublimaret domum Dei nostri, et exstrueret solitudines ejus, et daret nobis sepem in Juda et Jerusalem.
  10. Et nunc quid dicemus, Deus noster, post hæc ? Quia dereliquimus mandata tua,
  11. quæ præcepisti in manu servorum tuorum prophetarum, dicens : Terra, ad quam vos ingredimini ut possideatis eam, terra immunda est juxta immunditiam populorum, ceterarumque terrarum, abominationibus eorum qui repleverunt eam ab ore usque ad os in coinquinatione sua.
  12. Nunc ergo filias vestras ne detis filiis eorum, et filias eorum ne accipiatis filiis vestris, et non quæratis pacem eorum, et prosperitatem eorum usque in æternum : ut confortemini, et comedatis quæ bona sunt terræ, et hæredes habeatis filios vestros usque in sæculum.
  13. Et post omnia quæ venerunt super nos in operibus nostris pessimis, et in delicto nostro magno, quia tu, Deus noster, liberasti nos de iniquitate nostra, et dedisti nobis salutem sicut est hodie,
  14. ut non converteremur, et irrita faceremus mandata tua, neque matrimonia jungeremus cum populis abominationum istarum. Numquid iratus es nobis usque ad consummationem ne dimitteres nobis reliquias ad salutem ?
  15. Domine Deus Israël, justus es tu : quoniam derelicti sumus, qui salvaremur sicut die hac. Ecce coram te sumus in delicto nostro : non enim stari potest coram te super hoc.
Ezra 9 Text (KJV)
  1. Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
  2. For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.
  3. And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied.
  4. Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.
  5. And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God.
  6. And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.
  7. Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.
  8. And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
  9. For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
  10. And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,
  11. Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.
  12. Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.
  13. And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;
  14. Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?
  15. O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.
