The Holy Bible - Micah, Chapter 2 (Latin)
1Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.
2And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.
3Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.
4In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation, and say, We be utterly spoiled: he hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me! turning away he hath divided our fields.
5Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the LORD.
6Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame.
7O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?
8Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.
9The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.
10Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.
11If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.
12I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.
13The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.
1vae qui cogitatis inutile et operamini malum in cubilibus vestris in luce matutina faciunt illud quoniam contra Deum est manus eorum
2et concupierunt agros et violenter tulerunt et domos rapuerunt et calumniabantur virum et domum eius virum et hereditatem eius
3idcirco haec dicit Dominus ecce ego cogito super familiam istam malum unde non auferetis colla vestra et non ambulabitis superbi quoniam tempus pessimum est
4in die illa sumetur super vos parabola et cantabitur canticum cum suavitate dicentium depopulatione vastati sumus pars populi mei commutata est quomodo recedet a me cum revertatur qui regiones nostras dividat
5propter hoc non erit tibi mittens funiculum sortis in coetu Domini
6ne loquamini loquentes non stillabit super istos non conprehendet confusio
7dicit domus Iacob numquid adbreviatus est spiritus Domini aut tales sunt cogitationes eius nonne verba mea bona sunt cum eo qui recte graditur
8et e contrario populus meus in adversarium consurrexit desuper tunica pallium sustulistis eos qui transiebant simpliciter convertistis in bellum
9mulieres populi mei eiecistis de domo deliciarum suarum a parvulis earum tulistis laudem meam in perpetuum
10surgite et ite quia non habetis hic requiem propter inmunditiam eius corrumpetur putredine pessima
11utinam non essem vir habens spiritum et mendacium potius loquerer stillabo tibi in vinum et in ebrietatem et erit super quem stillatur populus iste
12congregatione congregabo Iacob totum te in unum conducam reliquias Israhel pariter ponam illum quasi gregem in ovili quasi pecus in medio caularum tumultuabuntur a multitudine hominum
13ascendet enim pandens iter ante eos divident et transibunt portam et egredientur per eam et transibit rex eorum coram eis et Dominus in capite eorum
