Eurōpājóm

Latine

Ελληνικά

11

Dhghomōn enis sū́nuwe eiket.

“A certain man had two sons.

Homo quidam habuit duos filios:

Ἄνθρωπός τις εἶχεν δύο υἱούς.

12

Joqe jowísteros patréi  weuqét : Pater, rijós dasdhi moi aitim qāi meghei áineti, joqe rēim ibhom widhét.

And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood.

et dixit adolescentior ex illis patri: Pater, da mihi portionem substantiæ, quæ me contingit. Et divisit illis substantiam.

καὶ εἶπεν ὁ νεώτερος αὐτῶν τῷ πατρί, Πάτερ, δός μοι τὸ ἐπιβάλλον μέρος τῆς οὐσίας. ὁ δὲ διεῖλεν αὐτοῖς τὸν βίον.

13

Enim nē péluwāns dināns pos, solwā garlós, jowísteros sūnús reu porsótenom oigheto londhom, idhei-qe rēim nudét sewe ghlóidotos cīwents.

And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.

Et non post multos dies, congregatis omnibus, adolescentior filius peregre profectus est in regionem longinquam, et ibi dissipavit substantiam suam vivendo luxuriose.

καὶ μετ' οὐ πολλὰς ἡμέρας συναγαγὼν πάντα ὁ νεώτερος υἱὸς ἀπεδήμησεν εἰς χώραν μακράν, καὶ ἐκεῖ διεσκόρπισεν τὴν οὐσίαν αὐτοῦ ζῶν ἀσώτως.

14

Enim ítapo solwā cósissēt kom, dhghtós molét ghrēdhus londhei ólnosmei, joqe egētum sepe bhwije.

But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.

Et postquam omnia consummasset, facta est fames valida in regione illa, et ipse cœpit egere.

δαπανήσαντος δὲ αὐτοῦ πάντα ἐγένετο λιμὸς ἰσχυρὰ κατὰ τὴν χώραν ἐκείνην, καὶ αὐτὸς ἤρξατο ὑστερεῖσθαι.

15

Itaqe cālós, qismei jugeto kéiwijom ólnosjo londhī, imqe sontajet porkons pāsksi.

Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

Et abiit, et adhæsit uni civium regionis illius: et misit illum in villam suam ut pasceret porcos.

καὶ πορευθεὶς ἐκολλήθη ἑνὶ τῶν πολιτῶν τῆς χώρας ἐκείνης, καὶ ἔπεμψεν αὐτὸν εἰς τοὺς ἀγροὺς αὐτοῦ βόσκειν χοίρους:

16

Atqe úderom skiqāis plnātum gheríjeto porkōs edent jans atqe neqis ismei dōt.

And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

Et cupiebat implere ventrem suum de siliquis, quas porci manducabant: et nemo illi dabat.

καὶ ἐπεθύμει χορτασθῆναι ἐκ τῶν κερατίων ὧν ἤσθιον οἱ χοῖροι, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐδίδου αὐτῷ.

17

Swei poti wtomnós, egt: qotjoi patrós domei mísdhotes paskneis spréigonti, kei eg au dhami mijai! 

“But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

In se autem reversus, dixit: Quanti mercenarii in domo patris mei abundant panibus, ego autem hic fame pereo!

εἰς ἑαυτὸν δὲ ἐλθὼν ἔφη, Πόσοι μίσθιοι τοῦ πατρός μου περισσεύονται ἄρτων, ἐγὼ δὲ λιμῷ ὧδε ἀπόλλυμαι.

18

ísomnos pater eisō mene ad, joqe ismei seksō : Pater, kémelom proti tewom-qe antí memlai,

I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,

surgam, et ibo ad patrem meum, et dicam ei: Pater, peccavi in cælum, et coram te:

ἀναστὰς πορεύσομαι πρὸς τὸν πατέρα μου καὶ ἐρῶ αὐτῷ, Πάτερ, ἥμαρτον εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἐνώπιόν σου,

19

jāmi nē deknos eg, sūnús téwijos kluwētum: dhasdhi me swāi qimqim mísdhotom tewe.

and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’

jam non sum dignus vocari filius tuus: fac me sicut unum de mercenariis tuis.

οὐκέτι εἰμὶ ἄξιος κληθῆναι υἱός σου: ποίησόν με ὡς ἕνα τῶν μισθίων σου.

20

Ita itós pater  ludhét sewe. Eti jom qeli bhūlō, em patr tósjope dket, joqe ana ksents kómqēiljō krūtós esti enim kolsom petlós em bhusājét.

“And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.

Et surgens venit ad patrem suum. Cum autem adhuc longe esset, vidit illum pater ipsius, et misericordia motus est, et accurrens cecidit super collum ejus, et osculatus est eum.

καὶ ἀναστὰς ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα ἑαυτοῦ. ἔτι δὲ αὐτοῦ μακρὰν ἀπέχοντος εἶδεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐσπλαγχνίσθη καὶ δραμὼν ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτόν.

21

Wedét óisosmōi sūnús: Pater, kémelom proti tewom-qe anti memlai: jāmi nē deknos eg, sūnús téwijos nōmnādhjom

And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

Dixitque ei filius: Pater, peccavi in cælum, et coram te: jam non sum dignus vocari filius tuus.

εἶπεν δὲ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτῷ, Πάτερ, ἥμαρτον εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἐνώπιόν σου, οὐκέτι εἰμὶ ἄξιος κληθῆναι υἱός σου.

22

nū mísdhatbhos bhato patr sewe; bhersi: pisām dhrághete togām joqe tom westíjete, anom tosjo ghéseni kerpjons-qe esjo daste pedsú:

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.

Dixit autem pater ad servos suos: Cito proferte stolam primam, et induite illum, et date annulum in manum ejus, et calceamenta in pedes ejus:

εἶπεν δὲ ὁ πατὴρ πρὸς τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ, Ταχὺ ἐξενέγκατε στολὴν τὴν πρώτην καὶ ἐνδύσατε αὐτόν, καὶ δότε δακτύλιον εἰς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ὑποδήματα εἰς τοὺς πόδας,

23

kom piwon-qe bhérete loigom joqe chénete, joqe edāmos, joqe wdām terpāmos,

And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;

et adducite vitulum saginatum, et occidite, et manducemus, et epulemur:

καὶ φέρετε τὸν μόσχον τὸν σιτευτόν, θύσατε καὶ φαγόντες εὐφρανθῶμεν,

24

for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

quia hic filius meus mortuus erat, et revixit: perierat, et inventus est. Et cœperunt epulari.

ὅτι οὗτος ὁ υἱός μου νεκρὸς ἦν καὶ ἀνέζησεν, ἦν ἀπολωλὼς καὶ εὑρέθη. καὶ ἤρξαντο εὐφραίνεσθαι.

25

Agrei au senísteros ēst sūnús: joqe jom cēmsēt enim domom nedisēt, kómkantum leig-qe kluwét.

“Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.

Erat autem filius ejus senior in agro: et cum veniret, et appropinquaret domui, audivit symphoniam et chorum:

ην δὲ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ πρεσβύτερος ἐν ἀγρῷ: καὶ ὡς ἐρχόμενος ἤγγισεν τῇ οἰκίᾳ, ἤκουσεν συμφωνίας καὶ χορῶν,

26

Joqe neqom móghuwom ghaulós pket qid ghāi-ke bhousēnt.

So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant.

et vocavit unum de servis, et interrogavit quid hæc essent.

καὶ προσκαλεσάμενος ἕνα τῶν παίδων ἐπυνθάνετο τί ἂν εἴη ταῦτα.

27

Isqe sqet: bhrātēr tewe cēme enim piwon patḗr two chone loigom, jodqid tom cīwóm solwom ghōde.

And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’

Isque dixit illi: Frater tuus venit, et occidit pater tuus vitulum saginatum, quia salvum illum recepit.

ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὅτι Ὁ ἀδελφός σου ἥκει, καὶ ἔθυσεν ὁ πατήρ σου τὸν μόσχον τὸν σιτευτόν, ὅτι ὑγιαίνοντα αὐτὸν ἀπέλαβεν.

 

 

 

28

“But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him.

Indignatus est autem, et nolebat introire. Pater ergo illius egressus, cœpit rogare illum.

ὠργίσθη δὲ καὶ οὐκ ἤθελεν εἰσελθεῖν. ὁ δὲ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐξελθὼν παρεκάλει αὐτόν.

So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends.

At ille respondens, dixit patri suo: Ecce tot annis servio tibi, et numquam mandatum tuum præterivi: et numquam dedisti mihi hædum ut cum amicis meis epularer.

ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ, Ἰδοὺ τοσαῦτα ἔτη δουλεύω σοι καὶ οὐδέποτε ἐντολήν σου παρῆλθον, καὶ ἐμοὶ οὐδέποτε ἔδωκας ἔριφον ἵνα μετὰ τῶν φίλων μου εὐφρανθῶ:

30

Mō ita tom sūnús tewe kei, rēim loutsāis cālós cēme, ólnosmōi píwon loigom chonta.

But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’

Sed postquam filius tuus hic, qui devoravit substantiam suam cum meretricibus, venit, occidisti illi vitulum saginatum.

ὅτε δὲ ὁ υἱός σου οὗτος ὁ καταφαγών σου τὸν βίον μετὰ πορνῶν ἦλθεν, ἔθυσας αὐτῷ τὸν σιτευτὸν μόσχον.

31

Atqe oise tosmōi weuqét: suneu, tū áiwesi mojo esi, enim solwā menjā téwijā senti.

“And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.

At ipse dixit illi: Fili, tu semper mecum es, et omnia mea tua sunt:

δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Τέκνον, σὺ πάντοτε μετ' ἐμοῦ εἶ, καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐμὰ σά ἐστιν:

εὐφρανθῆναι δὲ καὶ χαρῆναι ἔδει, ὅτι ὁ ἀδελφός σου οὗτος νεκρὸς ἦν καὶ ἔζησεν, καὶ ἀπολωλὼς καὶ εὑρέθη.
