The Holy Bible - Micah, Chapter 5 (Latin)
1Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek.
2But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
3Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
4And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.
5And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
6And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.
7And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men.
8And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.
9Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.
10And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots:
11And I will cut off the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds:
12(5:11)And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:
13(5:12)Thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands.
14(5:13)And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities.
15(5:14)And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.
1nunc vastaberis filia latronis obsidionem posuerunt super nos in virga percutient maxillam iudicis Israhel
2et tu Bethleem Ephrata parvulus es in milibus Iuda ex te mihi egredietur qui sit dominator in Israhel et egressus eius ab initio a diebus aeternitatis
3propter hoc dabit eos usque ad tempus in quo parturiens pariet reliquiae fratrum eius convertentur ad filios Israhel
4et stabit et pascet in fortitudine Domini in sublimitate nominis Domini Dei sui et convertentur quia nunc magnificabitur usque ad terminos terrae
5et erit iste pax Assyrius cum venerit in terram nostram et quando calcaverit in domibus nostris et suscitabimus super eum septem pastores et octo primates homines
6et pascent terram Assur in gladio et terram Nemrod in lanceis eius et liberabit ab Assur cum venerit in terram nostram et cum calcaverit in finibus nostris
7et erunt reliquiae Iacob in medio populorum multorum quasi ros a Domino et quasi stillae super herbam quae non expectat virum et non praestolatur filios hominum
8et erunt reliquiae Iacob in gentibus in medio populorum multorum quasi leo in iumentis silvarum et quasi catulus leonis in gregibus pecorum qui cum transierit et conculcaverit et ceperit non est qui eruat
9exaltabitur manus tua super hostes tuos et omnes inimici tui interibunt
10et erit in die illa dicit Dominus auferam equos tuos de medio tui et disperdam quadrigas tuas
11et perdam civitates terrae tuae et destruam omnes munitiones tuas et auferam maleficia de manu tua et divinationes non erunt in te
12et perire faciam sculptilia tua et statuas tuas de medio tui et non adorabis ultra opera manuum tuarum
13et evellam lucos tuos de medio tui et conteram civitates tuas
14et faciam in furore et in indignatione ultionem in omnibus gentibus quae non audierunt
