The Holy Bible - Hosea, Chapter 13 (Latin)
1When Ephraim spake trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended in Baal, he died.
2And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.
3Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud and as the early dew that passeth away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney.
4Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.
5I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.
6According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.
7Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:
8I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
9O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
10I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?
11I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.
12The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.
13The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.
14I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
15Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the wind of the LORD shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.
16(14:1)Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.
1loquente Ephraim horror invasit Israhel et deliquit in Baal et mortuus est
2et nunc addiderunt ad peccandum feceruntque sibi conflatile de argento suo quasi similitudinem idolorum factura artificum totum est his ipsi dicunt immolate homines vitulos adorantes
3idcirco erunt quasi nubes matutina et sicut ros matutinus praeteriens sicut pulvis turbine raptus ex area et sicut fumus de fumario
4ego autem Dominus Deus tuus ex terra Aegypti et Deum absque me nescies et salvator non est praeter me
5ego cognovi te in deserto in terra solitudinis
6iuxta pascua sua et adimpleti sunt et saturati elevaverunt cor suum et obliti sunt mei
7et ero eis quasi leaena sicut pardus in via Assyriorum
8occurram eis quasi ursa raptis catulis et disrumpam interiora iecoris eorum et consumam eos ibi quasi leo bestia agri scindet eos
9perditio tua Israhel tantummodo in me auxilium tuum
10ubi est rex tuus maxime nunc salvet te in omnibus urbibus tuis et iudices tui de quibus dixisti da mihi regem et principes
11dabo tibi regem in furore meo et auferam in indignatione mea
12conligata est iniquitas Ephraim absconditum peccatum eius
13dolores parturientis venient ei ipse filius non sapiens nunc enim non stabit in contritione filiorum
14de manu mortis liberabo eos de morte redimam eos ero mors tua o mors ero morsus tuus inferne consolatio abscondita est ab oculis meis
15quia ipse inter fratres dividet adducet urentem ventum Dominus de deserto ascendentem et siccabit venas eius et desolabit fontem eius et ipse diripiet thesaurum omnis vasis desiderabilis
1pereat Samaria quoniam ad amaritudinem concitavit Dominum suum in gladio pereat parvuli eorum elidantur et fetae eius discindantur
