Original text and translations

1  Clama ne cesses
quasi tuba exalta vocem tuam
et annuntia populo meo scelea eorum,
et domui Jacob, peccata eorum.
2a  Me et enim de die in diem quaerunt,
quasi gens quae iustitiam fecerit,
et quae iudicium Dei sui non dereliquaerit.

1  Shout it aloud, do not hold back.
Raise your voice like a trumpet.
Declare to my people their rebellion
and to the house of Jacob their sins.
2a  For day after day they seek me out;
as if they were a nation that does what is right
and has not forsaken the commands of its God.
(Isaiah 58: 1-2, New International Version)
