The Holy Bible - Jonah, Chapter 4 (Latin)
1But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.
2And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.
3Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.
4Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
5So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.
6And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
7But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered.
8And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.
9And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.
10Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night:
11And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
1et adflictus est Iona adflictione magna et iratus est
2et oravit ad Dominum et dixit obsecro Domine numquid non hoc est verbum meum cum adhuc essem in terra mea propter hoc praeoccupavi ut fugerem in Tharsis scio enim quia tu Deus clemens et misericors es patiens et multae miserationis et ignoscens super malitia
3et nunc Domine tolle quaeso animam meam a me quia melior est mihi mors quam vita
4et dixit Dominus putasne bene irasceris tu
5et egressus est Iona de civitate et sedit contra orientem civitatis et fecit sibimet ibi umbraculum et sedebat subter eum in umbra donec videret quid accideret civitati
6et praeparavit Dominus Deus hederam et ascendit super caput Ionae ut esset umbra super caput eius et protegeret eum laboraverat enim et laetatus est Iona super hedera laetitia magna
7et paravit Deus vermem ascensu diluculo in crastinum et percussit hederam et exaruit
8et cum ortus fuisset sol praecepit Dominus vento calido et urenti et percussit sol super caput Ionae et aestuabat et petivit animae suae ut moreretur et dixit melius est mihi mori quam vivere
9et dixit Dominus ad Ionam putasne bene irasceris tu super hederam et dixit bene irascor ego usque ad mortem
10et dixit Dominus tu doles super hederam in qua non laborasti neque fecisti ut cresceret quae sub una nocte nata est et una nocte periit
11et ego non parcam Nineve civitati magnae in qua sunt plus quam centum viginti milia hominum qui nesciunt quid sit inter dexteram et sinistram suam et iumenta multa
