The Holy Bible - Amos, Chapter 6 (Latin)
1Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!
2Pass ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border?
3Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;
4That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;
5That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David;
6That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
7Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.
8The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.
9And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.
10And a man's uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with thee?
11(6:12)For, behold, the LORD commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts.
12(6:13)Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into hemlock:
13(6:14)Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?
14(6:15)But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.
1vae qui opulenti estis in Sion et confiditis in monte Samariae optimates capita populorum ingredientes pompatice domum Israhel
2transite in Chalanne et videte et ite inde in Emath magnam et descendite in Geth Palestinorum et ad optima quaeque regna horum si latior terminus eorum termino vestro est
3qui separati estis in diem malum et adpropinquatis solio iniquitatis
4qui dormitis in lectis eburneis et lascivitis in stratis vestris qui comeditis agnum de grege et vitulos de medio armenti
5qui canitis ad vocem psalterii sicut David putaverunt se habere vasa cantici
6bibentes in fialis vinum et optimo unguento delibuti et nihil patiebantur super contritione Ioseph
7quapropter nunc migrabunt in capite transmigrantium et auferetur factio lascivientium
8iuravit Dominus Deus in anima sua dicit Dominus Deus exercituum detestor ego superbiam Iacob et domos eius odi et tradam civitatem cum habitatoribus suis
9quod si reliqui fuerint decem viri in domo una et ipsi morientur
10et tollet eum propinquus suus et conburet eum ut efferat ossa de domo et dicet ei qui in penetrabilibus domus est numquid adhuc est apud te
11et respondebit finis est et dicet ei tace et non recorderis nominis Domini
12quia ecce Dominus mandabit et percutiet domum maiorem ruinis et domum minorem scissionibus
13numquid currere queunt in petris equi aut arari potest in bubalis quoniam convertistis in amaritudinem iudicium et fructum iustitiae in absinthium
14qui laetamini in nihili qui dicitis numquid non in fortitudine nostra adsumpsimus nobis cornua
15ecce enim suscitabo super vos domus Israhel dicit Dominus Deus exercituum gentem et conterent vos ab introitu Emath usque ad torrentem Deserti
