The Holy Bible - Amos, Chapter 2 (Latin)
1Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime:
2But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet:
3And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all the princes thereof with him, saith the LORD.
4Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:
5But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.
6Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;
7That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy name:
8And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.
9Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.
10Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and led you forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.
11And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD.
12But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not.
13Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves.
14Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver himself:
15Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself: neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself.
16And he that is courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, saith the LORD.
1haec dicit Dominus super tribus sceleribus Moab et super quattuor non convertam eum eo quod incenderit ossa regis Idumeae usque ad cinerem
2et mittam ignem in Moab et devorabit aedes Carioth et morietur in sonitu Moab in clangore tubae
3et disperdam iudicem de medio eius et omnes principes eius interficiam cum eo dicit Dominus
4haec dicit Dominus super tribus sceleribus Iuda et super quattuor non convertam eum eo quod abiecerint legem Domini et mandata eius non custodierint deceperunt enim eos idola sua post quae abierant patres eorum
5et mittam ignem in Iuda et devorabit aedes Hierusalem
6haec dicit Dominus super tribus sceleribus Israhel et super quattuor non convertam eum pro eo quod vendiderit argento iustum et pauperem pro calciamentis
7qui conterunt super pulverem terrae capita pauperum et viam humilium declinant et filius ac pater eius ierunt ad puellam ut violarent nomen sanctum meum
8et super vestimentis pigneratis accubuerunt iuxta omne altare et vinum damnatorum bibebant in domo Dei sui
9ego autem exterminavi Amorreum a facie eorum cuius altitudo cedrorum altitudo eius et fortis ipse quasi quercus et contrivi fructum eius desuper et radices eius subter
10ego sum qui ascendere vos feci de terra Aegypti et eduxi vos in deserto quadraginta annis ut possideretis terram Amorrei
11et suscitavi de filiis vestris in prophetas et de iuvenibus vestris nazarenos numquid non ita est filii Israhel dicit Dominus
12et propinabatis nazarenis vino et prophetis mandabatis dicentes ne prophetetis
13ecce ego stridebo super vos sicut stridet plaustrum onustum faeno
14et peribit fuga a veloce et fortis non obtinebit virtutem suam et robustus non salvabit animam suam
15et tenens arcum non stabit et velox pedibus suis non salvabitur et ascensor equi non salvabit animam suam
16et robustus corde inter fortes nudus fugiet in die illa dicit Dominus
