The Holy Bible - Amos, Chapter 7 (Latin)
1Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me; and, behold, he formed grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.
2And it came to pass, that when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord GOD, forgive, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
3The LORD repented for this: It shall not be, saith the LORD.
4Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord GOD called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.
5Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
6The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD.
7Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the LORD stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.
8And the LORD said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the LORD, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more:
9And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.
10Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.
11For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.
12Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:
13But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court.
14Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:
15And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.
16Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.
17Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
1haec ostendit mihi Dominus Deus et ecce fictor lucustae in principio germinantium serotini imbris et ecce serotinus post tonsorem regis
2et factum est cum consummasset comedere herbam terrae et dixi Domine Deus propitius esto obsecro quis suscitabit Iacob quia parvulus est
3misertus est Dominus super hoc non erit dixit Dominus
4haec ostendit mihi Dominus Deus et ecce vocabat iudicium ad ignem Dominus Deus et devoravit abyssum multam et comedit simul partem
5et dixi Domine Deus quiesce obsecro quis suscitabit Iacob quia parvulus est
6misertus est Dominus super hoc sed et istud non erit dixit Dominus Deus
7haec ostendit mihi et ecce Dominus stans super murum litum et in manu eius trulla cementarii
8et dixit Dominus ad me quid tu vides Amos et dixi trullam cementarii et dixit Dominus ecce ego ponam trullam in medio populi mei Israhel non adiciam ultra superinducere eum
9et demolientur excelsa idoli et sanctificationes Israhel desolabuntur et consurgam super domum Hieroboam in gladio
10et misit Amasias sacerdos Bethel ad Hieroboam regem Israhel dicens rebellavit contra te Amos in medio domus Israhel non poterit terra sustinere universos sermones eius
11haec enim dicit Amos in gladio morietur Hieroboam et Israhel captivus migrabit de terra sua
12et dixit Amasias ad Amos qui vides gradere fuge in terram Iuda et comede ibi panem et ibi prophetabis
13et in Bethel non adicies ultra ut prophetes quia sanctificatio regis est et domus regni est
14et respondit Amos et dixit ad Amasiam non sum propheta et non sum filius prophetae sed armentarius ego sum vellicans sycomoros
15et tulit me Dominus cum sequerer gregem et dixit ad me Dominus vade propheta ad populum meum Israhel
16et nunc audi verbum Domini tu dicis non prophetabis super Israhel et non stillabis super domum idoli
17propter hoc haec dicit Dominus uxor tua in civitate fornicabitur et filii tui et filiae tuae in gladio cadent et humus tua funiculo metietur et tu in terra polluta morieris et Israhel captivus migrabit de terra sua
