The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, Chapter 23 (Latin)
1The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
2Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:
3And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.
4And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.
5And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,
6Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.
7Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their idols she defiled herself.
8Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her.
9Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.
10These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women; for they had executed judgment upon her.
11And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms.
12She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men.
13Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,
14And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion,
15Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity:
16And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.
17And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and her mind was alienated from them.
18So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister.
19Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.
20For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.
21Thus thou calledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth.
22Therefore, O Aholibah, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will raise up thy lovers against thee, from whom thy mind is alienated, and I will bring them against thee on every side;
23The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa, and all the Assyrians with them: all of them desirable young men, captains and rulers, great lords and renowned, all of them riding upon horses.
24And they shall come against thee with chariots, wagons, and wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set against thee buckler and shield and helmet round about: and I will set judgment before them, and they shall judge thee according to their judgments.
25And I will set my jealousy against thee, and they shall deal furiously with thee: they shall take away thy nose and thine ears; and thy remnant shall fall by the sword: they shall take thy sons and thy daughters; and thy residue shall be devoured by the fire.
26They shall also strip thee out of thy clothes, and take away thy fair jewels.
27Thus will I make thy lewdness to cease from thee, and thy whoredom brought from the land of Egypt: so that thou shalt not lift up thine eyes unto them, nor remember Egypt any more.
28For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will deliver thee into the hand of them whom thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated:
29And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.
30I will do these things unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring after the heathen, and because thou art polluted with their idols.
31Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister; therefore will I give her cup into thine hand.
32Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou shalt drink of thy sister's cup deep and large: thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision; it containeth much.
33Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup of astonishment and desolation, with the cup of thy sister Samaria.
34Thou shalt even drink it and suck it out, and thou shalt break the sherds thereof, and pluck off thine own breasts: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
35Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast forgotten me, and cast me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.
36The LORD said moreover unto me; Son of man, wilt thou judge Aholah and Aholibah? yea, declare unto them their abominations;
37That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them.
38Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths.
39For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house.
40And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments,
41And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.
42And a voice of a multitude being at ease was with her: and with the men of the common sort were brought Sabeans from the wilderness, which put bracelets upon their hands, and beautiful crowns upon their heads.
43Then said I unto her that was old in adulteries, Will they now commit whoredoms with her, and she with them?
44Yet they went in unto her, as they go in unto a woman that playeth the harlot: so went they in unto Aholah and unto Aholibah, the lewd women.
45And the righteous men, they shall judge them after the manner of adulteresses, and after the manner of women that shed blood; because they are adulteresses, and blood is in their hands.
46For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will bring up a company upon them, and will give them to be removed and spoiled.
47And the company shall stone them with stones, and dispatch them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and burn up their houses with fire.
48Thus will I cause lewdness to cease out of the land, that all women may be taught not to do after your lewdness.
49And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
1et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
2fili hominis duae mulieres filiae matris unius fuerunt
3et fornicatae sunt in Aegypto in adulescentia sua fornicatae sunt ibi subacta sunt ubera earum et fractae sunt mammae pubertatis earum
4nomina autem earum Oolla maior et Ooliba soror eius et habui eas et pepererunt filios et filias porro earum nomina Samaria Oolla et Hierusalem Ooliba
5fornicata est igitur Oolla super me et insanivit in amatores suos in Assyrios propinquantes
6vestitos hyacintho principes et magistratus iuvenes cupidinis universos equites ascensores equorum
7et dedit fornicationes suas super eos electos filios Assyriorum universos et in omnibus in quos insanivit in inmunditiis eorum polluta est
8insuper et fornicationes suas quas habuerat in Aegypto non reliquit nam et illi dormierant cum ea in adulescentia eius et illi confregerant ubera pubertatis eius et effuderant fornicationem suam super eam
9propterea tradidi eam in manu amatorum suorum in manus filiorum Assur super quorum insanivit libidinem
10ipsi discoperuerunt ignominiam eius filios et filias illius tulerunt et ipsam occiderunt gladio et factae sunt famosae mulieres et iudicia perpetrarunt in ea
11quod cum vidisset soror eius Ooliba plus quam illa insanivit libidine et fornicationem suam super fornicationem sororis suae
12ad filios Assyriorum praebuit inpudenter ducibus et magistratibus ad se venientibus indutis veste varia equitibus qui vectabantur equis et adulescentibus forma cunctis egregia
13et vidi quod polluta esset via una ambarum
14et auxit fornicationes suas cumque vidisset viros depictos in pariete imagines Chaldeorum expressas coloribus
15et accinctos balteis renes et tiaras tinctas in capitibus eorum formam ducum omnium similitudinem filiorum Babylonis terraeque Chaldeorum in qua orti sunt
16et insanivit super eos concupiscentia oculorum suorum et misit nuntios ad eos in Chaldeam
17cumque venissent ad eam filii Babylonis ad cubile mammarum polluerunt eam stupris suis et polluta est ab eis et saturata est anima eius ab illis
18denudavit quoque fornicationes suas et discoperuit ignominiam suam et recessit anima mea ab ea sicut recesserat anima mea a sorore eius
19multiplicavit enim fornicationes suas recordans dies adulescentiae suae quibus fornicata est in terra Aegypti
20et insanivit libidine super concubitu eorum quorum carnes sunt ut carnes asinorum et sicut fluxus equorum fluxus eorum
21et visitasti scelus adulescentiae tuae quando subacta sunt in Aegypto ubera tua et confractae mammae pubertatis tuae
22propterea Ooliba haec dicit Dominus Deus ecce ego suscitabo omnes amatores tuos contra te de quibus satiata est anima tua et congregabo eos adversum te in circuitu
23filios Babylonis et universos Chaldeos nobiles tyrannosque et principes omnes filios Assyriorum iuvenes forma egregia duces et magistratus universos principes principum et nominatos ascensores equorum
24et venient super te instructi curru et rota multitudo populorum lorica et clypeo et galea armabuntur contra te undique et dabo coram eis iudicium et iudicabunt te iudiciis suis
25et ponam zelum meum in te quem exercent tecum in furore nasum tuum et aures tuas praecident et quae remanserint gladio concident ipsi filios tuos et filias tuas capient et novissimum tuum devorabitur igni
26et denudabunt te vestimentis tuis et tollent vasa gloriae tuae
27et requiescere faciam scelus tuum de te et fornicationem tuam de terra Aegypti nec levabis oculos tuos ad eos et Aegypti non recordaberis amplius
28quia haec dicit Dominus Deus ecce ego tradam te in manu eorum quos odisti in manu de quibus satiata est anima tua
29et agent tecum in odio et tollent omnes labores tuos et dimittent te nudam et ignominia plenam revelabitur ignominia fornicationum tuarum scelus tuum et fornicationes tuae
30fecerunt haec tibi quia fornicata es post gentes inter quas polluta es in idolis eorum
31in via sororis tuae ambulasti et dabo calicem eius in manu tua
32haec dicit Dominus Deus calicem sororis tuae bibes profundum et latum eris in derisum et in subsannationem quae es capacissima
33ebrietate et dolore repleberis calice maeroris et tristitiae calice sororis tuae Samariae
34et bibes illum et epotabis usque ad feces et fragmenta eius devorabis et ubera tua lacerabis quia ego locutus sum ait Dominus Deus
35propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus quia oblita es mei et proiecisti me post corpus tuum tu quoque porta scelus tuum et fornicationes tuas
36et ait Dominus ad me dicens fili hominis numquid iudicas Oollam et Oolibam et adnuntias eis scelera earum
37quia adulterae sunt et sanguis in manibus earum et cum idolis suis fornicatae sunt insuper et filios suos quos genuerunt mihi obtulerunt eis ad devorandum
38sed et hoc fecerunt mihi polluerunt sanctuarium meum in die illa et sabbata mea profanaverunt
39cumque immolarent filios suos idolis suis et ingrederentur sanctuarium meum in die illa ut polluerent illud etiam haec fecerunt in medio domus meae
40miserunt ad viros venientes de longe ad quos nuntium miserant itaque ecce venerunt quibus te lavisti et circumlevisti stibio oculos tuos et ornata es mundo muliebri
41sedisti in lecto pulcherrimo et mensa ordinata est ante te thymiama meum et unguentum meum posuisti super eam
42et vox multitudinis exultantis erat in ea et in viris qui de multitudine hominum adducebantur et veniebant de deserto posuerunt armillas in manibus eorum et coronas speciosas in capitibus eorum
43et dixi ei quae adtrita est in adulteriis nunc fornicabitur in fornicatione sua etiam haec
44et ingressi sunt ad eam quasi ad mulierem meretricem sic ingrediebantur ad Oollam et ad Oolibam mulieres nefarias
45viri ergo iusti sunt hii iudicabunt eas iudicio adulterarum et iudicio effundentium sanguinem quia adulterae sunt et sanguis in manibus earum
46haec enim dicit Dominus Deus adduc ad eas multitudinem et trade eas in tumultum et in rapinam
47et lapidentur lapidibus populorum et confodiantur gladiis eorum filios et filias earum interficient et domos earum igne succendent
48et auferam scelus de terra et discent omnes mulieres ne faciant secundum scelus earum
49et dabunt scelus vestrum super vos et peccata idolorum vestrorum portabitis et scietis quia ego Dominus Deus
