The Holy Bible - Amos, Chapter 9 (Latin)
1I saw the LORD standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.
2Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down:
3And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them:
4And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.
5And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
6It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.
7Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
8Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD.
9For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
11In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
12That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.
13Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
14And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
15And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
1vidi Dominum stantem super altare et dixit percute cardinem et commoveantur superliminaria avaritia enim in capite omnium et novissimum eorum in gladio interficiam non erit fuga eis fugiet et non salvabitur ex eis qui fugerit
2si descenderint usque ad infernum inde manus mea educet eos et si ascenderint usque ad caelum inde detraham eos
3et si absconditi fuerint in vertice Carmeli inde scrutans auferam eos et si celaverint se ab oculis meis in fundo maris ibi mandabo serpenti et mordebit eos
4et si abierint in captivitatem coram inimicis suis ibi mandabo gladio et occidet eos et ponam oculos meos super eos in malum et non in bonum
5et Dominus Deus exercituum qui tangit terram et tabescet et lugebunt omnes habitantes in ea et ascendet sicut rivus omnis et defluet sicut fluvius Aegypti
6qui aedificat in caelo ascensionem suam et fasciculum suum super terram fundavit qui vocat aquas maris et effundit eas super faciem terrae Dominus nomen eius
7numquid non ut filii Aethiopum vos estis mihi filii Israhel ait Dominus numquid non Israhel ascendere feci de terra Aegypti et Palestinos de Cappadocia et Syros de Cyrene
8ecce oculi Domini Dei super regnum peccans et conteram illud a facie terrae verumtamen conterens non conteram domum Iacob dicit Dominus
9ecce enim ego mandabo et concutiam in omnibus gentibus domum Israhel sicut concutitur in cribro et non cadet lapillus super terram
10in gladio morientur omnes peccatores populi mei qui dicunt non adpropinquabit et non veniet super nos malum
11in die illo suscitabo tabernaculum David quod cecidit et reaedificabo aperturas murorum eius et ea quae corruerant instaurabo et reaedificabo eum sicut diebus antiquis
12ut possideant reliquias Idumeae et omnes nationes eo quod invocatum sit nomen meum super eos dicit Dominus faciens haec
13ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et conprehendet arator messorem et calcator uvae mittentem semen et stillabunt montes dulcedinem et omnes colles culti erunt
14et convertam captivitatem populi mei Israhel et aedificabunt civitates desertas et habitabunt et plantabunt vineas et bibent vinum earum et facient hortos et comedent fructus eorum
15et plantabo eos super humum suam et non evellam eos ultra de terra sua quam dedi eis dicit Dominus Deus tuus
