The Holy Bible - Hosea, Chapter 12 (Latin)
1Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily increaseth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt.
2The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.
3He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God:
4Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us;
5Even the LORD God of hosts; the LORD is his memorial.
6Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment and wait on thy God continually.
7He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loveth to oppress.
8And Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I have found me out substance: in all my labours they shall find none iniquity in me that were sin.
9And I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.
10I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.
11Is there iniquity in Gilead? surely they are vanity: they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yea, their altars are as heaps in the furrows of the fields.
12And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.
13And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.
14Ephraim provoked him to anger most bitterly: therefore shall he leave his blood upon him, and his reproach shall his LORD return unto him.
1Ephraim pascit ventum et sequitur aestum tota die mendacium et vastitatem multiplicat et foedus cum Assyriis iniit et oleum in Aegyptum ferebat
2iudicium ergo Domini cum Iuda et visitatio super Iacob iuxta vias eius et iuxta adinventiones eius reddet ei
3in utero subplantavit fratrem suum et in fortitudine sua directus est cum angelo
4et invaluit ad angelum et confortatus est flevit et rogavit eum in Bethel invenit eum et ibi locutus est nobiscum
5et Dominus Deus exercituum Dominus memoriale eius
6et tu ad Deum tuum converteris misericordiam et iudicium custodi et spera in Deo tuo semper
7Chanaan in manu eius statera dolosa calumniam dilexit
8et dixit Ephraim verumtamen dives effectus sum inveni idolum mihi omnes labores mei non invenient mihi iniquitatem quam peccavi
9et ego Dominus Deus tuus ex terra Aegypti adhuc sedere te faciam in tabernaculis sicut in diebus festivitatis
10et locutus sum super prophetas et ego visionem multiplicavi et in manu prophetarum adsimilatus sum
11si Galaad idolum tamen frustra erant in Galgal bubus immolantes nam et altaria eorum quasi acervi super sulcos agri
12fugit Iacob in regionem Syriae et servivit Israhel in uxore et in uxore servavit
13in propheta autem eduxit Dominus Israhel de Aegypto et in propheta servatus est
14ad iracundiam me provocavit Ephraim in amaritudinibus suis et sanguis eius super eum veniet et obprobrium eius restituet ei Dominus suus
