The Holy Bible - The Book of Joshua, Chapter 6 (Latin)
1Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in.
2And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.
3And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.
4And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
5And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.
6And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD.
7And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD.
8And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.
9And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
10And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.
11So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.
12And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD.
13And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
14And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days.
15And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.
16And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city.
17And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
18And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
19But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the LORD.
20So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
21And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.
22But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.
23And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel.
24And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.
25And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.
26And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.
27So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was noised throughout all the country.
1Hiericho autem clausa erat atque munita timore filiorum Israhel et nullus egredi audebat aut ingredi
2dixitque Dominus ad Iosue ecce dedi in manus tuas Hiericho et regem eius omnesque fortes viros
3circuite urbem cuncti bellatores semel per diem sic facietis sex diebus
4septimo autem die sacerdotes tollant septem bucinas quarum usus est in iobeleo et praecedant arcam foederis septiesque circuibitis civitatem et sacerdotes clangent bucinis
5cumque insonuerit vox tubae longior atque concisior et in auribus vestris increpuerit conclamabit omnis populus vociferatione maxima et muri funditus corruent civitatis ingredienturque singuli per locum contra quem steterint
6vocavit ergo Iosue filius Nun sacerdotes et dixit ad eos tollite arcam foederis et septem alii sacerdotes tollant septem iobeleorum bucinas et incedant ante arcam Domini
7ad populum quoque ait vadite et circuite civitatem armati praecedentes arcam Domini
8cumque Iosue verba finisset et septem sacerdotes septem bucinis clangerent ante arcam foederis Domini
9omnisque praecederet armatus exercitus reliquum vulgus arcam sequebatur ac bucinis omnia concrepabant
10praeceperat autem Iosue populo dicens non clamabitis nec audietur vox vestra neque ullus sermo ex ore vestro egredietur donec veniat dies in quo dicam vobis clamate et vociferamini
11circuivit ergo arca Domini civitatem semel per diem et reversa in castra mansit ibi
12igitur Iosue de nocte consurgente tulerunt sacerdotes arcam Domini
13et septem ex eis septem bucinas quarum in iobeleis usus est praecedebantque arcam Domini ambulantes atque clangentes et armatus populus ibat ante eos vulgus autem reliquum sequebatur arcam et bucinis personabat
14circumieruntque civitatem secundo die semel et reversi sunt in castra sic fecerunt sex diebus
15die autem septimo diluculo consurgentes circumierunt urbem sicut dispositum erat septies
16cumque septimo circuitu clangerent bucinis sacerdotes dixit Iosue ad omnem Israhel vociferamini tradidit enim vobis Dominus civitatem
17sitque civitas haec anathema et omnia quae in ea sunt Domino sola Raab meretrix vivat cum universis qui cum ea in domo sunt abscondit enim nuntios quos direximus
18vos autem cavete ne de his quae praecepta sunt quippiam contingatis et sitis praevaricationis rei et omnia castra Israhel sub peccato sint atque turbentur
19quicquid autem auri et argenti fuerit et vasorum aeneorum ac ferri Domino consecretur repositum in thesauris eius
20igitur omni vociferante populo et clangentibus tubis postquam in aures multitudinis vox sonitusque increpuit muri ilico corruerunt et ascendit unusquisque per locum qui contra se erat ceperuntque civitatem
21et interfecerunt omnia quae erant in ea a viro usque ad mulierem ab infante usque ad senem boves quoque et oves et asinos in ore gladii percusserunt
22duobus autem viris qui exploratores missi fuerant dixit Iosue ingredimini domum mulieris meretricis et producite eam omniaque quae illius sunt sicut illi iuramento firmastis
23ingressique iuvenes eduxerunt Raab et parentes eius fratres quoque et cunctam supellectilem ac cognationem illius et extra castra Israhel manere fecerunt
24urbem autem et omnia quae in ea sunt succenderunt absque argento et auro et vasis aeneis ac ferro quae in aerarium Domini consecrarunt
25Raab vero meretricem et domum patris eius atque omnia quae habebat fecit Iosue vivere et habitaverunt in medio Israhel usque in praesentem diem eo quod absconderit nuntios quos miserat ut explorarent Hiericho in tempore illo inprecatus est Iosue dicens
26maledictus vir coram Domino qui suscitaverit et aedificaverit civitatem Hiericho in primogenito suo fundamenta illius iaciat et in novissimo liberorum ponat portas eius
27fuit ergo Dominus cum Iosue et nomen eius in omni terra vulgatum est
