The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, Chapter 21 (Latin)
1And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,
3And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.
4Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north:
5That all flesh may know that I the LORD have drawn forth my sword out of his sheath: it shall not return any more.
6Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.
7And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD.
8Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
9Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished:
10It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter: should we then make mirth? it contemneth the rod of my son, as every tree.
11And he hath given it to be furbished, that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the slayer.
12Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my people, it shall be upon all the princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon my people: smite therefore upon thy thigh.
13Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the rod? it shall be no more, saith the Lord GOD.
14Thou therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite thine hands together. and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men that are slain, which entereth into their privy chambers.
15I have set the point of the sword against all their gates, that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up for the slaughter.
16Go thee one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the left, whithersoever thy face is set.
17I will also smite mine hands together, and I will cause my fury to rest: I the LORD have said it.
18The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,
19Also, thou son of man, appoint thee two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land: and choose thou a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.
20Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.
21For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.
22At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort.
23And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
24Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.
25And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
26Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
27I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.
28And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:
29Whiles they see vanity unto thee, whiles they divine a lie unto thee, to bring thee upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.
30Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.
31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.
32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.
1et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
2fili hominis pone faciem tuam ad Hierusalem et stilla ad sanctuaria et propheta contra humum Israhel
3et dices terrae Israhel haec dicit Dominus Deus ecce ego ad te et eiciam gladium meum de vagina sua et occidam in te iustum et impium
4pro eo autem quod occidi in te iustum et impium idcirco egredietur gladius meus de vagina sua ad omnem carnem ab austro ad aquilonem
5ut sciat omnis caro quia ego Dominus eduxi gladium meum de vagina sua inrevocabilem
6et tu fili hominis ingemesce in contritione lumborum et in amaritudinibus ingemesce coram eis
7cumque dixerint ad te quare tu gemis dices pro auditu quia venit et tabescet omne cor et dissolventur universae manus et infirmabitur omnis spiritus et per cuncta genua fluent aquae ecce venit et fiet ait Dominus Deus
8et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
9fili hominis propheta et dices haec dicit Dominus Deus loquere gladius gladius exacutus est et limatus
10ut caedat victimas exacutus est ut splendeat limatus est qui moves sceptrum filii mei succidisti omne lignum
11et dedi eum ad levigandum ut teneatur manu iste exacutus est gladius et iste limatus ut sit in manu interficientis
12clama et ulula fili hominis quia hic factus est in populo meo hic in cunctis ducibus Israhel qui fugerant gladio traditi sunt cum populo meo idcirco plaude super femur
13quia probatus est et hoc cum sceptrum subverterit et non erit dicit Dominus Deus
14tu ergo fili hominis propheta et percute manu ad manum et duplicetur gladius ac triplicetur gladius interfectorum hic est gladius occisionis magnae qui obstupescere eos facit
15et corde tabescere et multiplicat ruinas in omnibus portis eorum dedi conturbationem gladii acuti et limati ad fulgendum amicti ad caedem
16exacuere vade ad dextram sive ad sinistram quocumque faciei tuae est appetitus
17quin et ego plaudam manu ad manum et implebo indignationem meam ego Dominus locutus sum
18et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
19et tu fili hominis pone tibi duas vias ut veniat gladius regis Babylonis de terra una egredientur ambo et manu capiet coniecturam in capite viae civitatis coniciet
20viam pones ut veniat gladius ad Rabbath filiorum Ammon et ad Iudam in Hierusalem munitissimam
21stetit enim rex Babylonis in bivio in capite duarum viarum divinationem quaerens commiscens sagittas interrogavit idola exta consuluit
22ad dextram eius facta est divinatio super Hierusalem ut ponat arietes ut aperiat os in caede ut elevet vocem in ululatu ut ponat arietes contra portas ut conportet aggerem ut aedificet munitiones
23eritque quasi consulens frustra oraculum in oculis eorum et sabbatorum otium imitans ipse autem recordabitur iniquitatis ad capiendum
24idcirco haec dicit Dominus Deus pro eo quod recordati estis iniquitatis vestrae et revelastis praevaricationes vestras et apparuerunt peccata vestra in omnibus cogitationibus vestris pro eo inquam quod recordati estis manu capiemini
25tu autem profane impie dux Israhel cuius venit dies in tempore iniquitatis praefinita
26haec dicit Dominus Deus aufer cidarim tolle coronam nonne haec est quae humilem sublevavit et sublimem humiliavit
27iniquitatem iniquitatem iniquitatem ponam eam et hoc nunc factum est donec veniret cuius est iudicium et tradam ei
28et tu fili hominis propheta et dic haec dicit Dominus Deus ad filios Ammon et ad obprobrium eorum et dices mucro mucro evaginate ad occidendum limate ut interficias et fulgeas
29cum tibi viderentur vana et divinarentur mendacia ut dareris super colla vulneratorum impiorum quorum venit dies in tempore iniquitatis praefinita
30revertere ad vaginam tuam in loco in quo creatus es in terra nativitatis tuae iudicabo te
31et effundam super te indignationem meam in igne furoris mei sufflabo in te daboque te in manus hominum insipientium et fabricantium interitum
32igni eris cibus sanguis tuus erit in medio terrae oblivioni traderis quia ego Dominus locutus sum
