The Holy Bible - Hosea, Chapter 8 (Latin)
1Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
2Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee.
3Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.
4They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.
5Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency?
6For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.
7For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
8Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.
9For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.
10Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.
11Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.
12I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.
13They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.
14For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
1in gutture tuo sit tuba quasi aquila super domum Domini pro eo quod transgressi sunt foedus meum et legem meam praevaricati sunt
2me invocabunt Deus meus cognovimus te Israhel
3proiecit Israhel bonum inimicus persequetur eum
4ipsi regnaverunt et non ex me principes extiterunt et non cognovi argentum suum et aurum suum fecerunt sibi idola ut interirent
5proiectus est vitulus tuus Samaria iratus est furor meus in eis usquequo non poterunt emundari
6quia ex Israhel et ipse est artifex fecit illum et non est Deus quoniam in aranearum telas erit vitulus Samariae
7quia ventum seminabunt et turbinem metent culmus stans non est in eis germen non faciet farinam quod si et fecerit alieni comedent eam
8devoratus est Israhel nunc factus est in nationibus quasi vas inmundum
9quia ipsi ascenderunt ad Assur onager solitarius sibi Ephraim munera dederunt amatoribus
10sed et cum mercede conduxerint nationes nunc congregabo eos et quiescent paulisper ab onere regis et principum
11quia multiplicavit Ephraim altaria ad peccandum factae sunt ei arae in delictum
12scribam ei multiplices leges meas quae velut alienae conputatae sunt
13hostias adfer adfer immolabunt carnes et comedent Dominus non suscipiet eas nunc recordabitur iniquitatis eorum et visitabit peccata eorum ipsi in Aegyptum convertentur
14et oblitus est Israhel factoris sui et aedificavit delubra et Iudas multiplicavit urbes munitas et mittam ignem in civitates eius et devorabit aedes illius
