The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, Chapter 3 (Latin)
1Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.
2So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.
3And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
4And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
5For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;
6Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee.
7But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
8Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.
9As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
11And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
12Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.
13I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.
14So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.
15Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.
16And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
17Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
18When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
19Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
20Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
21Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
22And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and he said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with thee.
23Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face.
24Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut thyself within thine house.
25But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them:
26And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.
27But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.
1et dixit ad me fili hominis quodcumque inveneris comede comede volumen istud et vadens loquere ad filios Israhel
2et aperui os meum et cibavit me volumine illo
3et dixit ad me fili hominis venter tuus comedet et viscera tua conplebuntur volumine isto quod ego do tibi et comedi illud et factum est in ore meo sicut mel dulce
4et dixit ad me fili hominis vade ad domum Israhel et loqueris verba mea ad eos
5non enim ad populum profundi sermonis et ignotae linguae tu mitteris ad domum Israhel
6neque ad populos multos profundi sermonis et ignotae linguae quorum non possis audire sermones et si ad illos mittereris ipsi audirent te
7domus autem Israhel nolent audire te quia nolunt audire me omnis quippe domus Israhel adtrita fronte est et duro corde
8ecce dedi faciem tuam valentiorem faciebus eorum et frontem tuam duriorem frontibus eorum
9ut adamantem et ut silicem dedi faciem tuam ne timeas eos neque metuas a facie eorum quia domus exasperans est
10et dixit ad me fili hominis omnes sermones meos quos loquor ad te adsume in corde tuo et auribus tuis audi
11et vade ingredere ad transmigrationem ad filios populi tui et loqueris ad eos et dices eis haec dicit Dominus Deus si forte audiant et quiescant
12et adsumpsit me spiritus et audivi post me vocem commotionis magnae benedicta gloria Domini de loco suo
13et vocem alarum animalium percutientium alteram ad alteram et vocem rotarum sequentium animalia et vocem commotionis magnae
14spiritus quoque levavit me et adsumpsit me et abii amarus in indignatione spiritus mei manus enim Domini erat mecum confortans me
15et veni ad transmigrationem acervum novarum frugum ad eos qui habitabant iuxta flumen Chobar et sedi ubi illi sedebant et mansi ibi septem diebus maerens in medio eorum
16cum autem pertransissent septem dies factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens
17fili hominis speculatorem dedi te domui Israhel et audies de ore meo verbum et adnuntiabis eis ex me
18si dicente me ad impium morte morieris non adnuntiaveris ei neque locutus fueris ut avertatur a via sua impia et vivat ipse impius in iniquitate sua morietur sanguinem autem eius de manu tua requiram
19si autem tu adnuntiaveris impio et ille non fuerit conversus ab impietate sua et via sua impia ipse quidem in iniquitate sua morietur tu autem animam tuam liberasti
20sed et si conversus iustus a iustitia sua fecerit iniquitatem ponam offendiculum coram eo ipse morietur quia non adnuntiasti ei in peccato suo morietur et non erunt in memoria iustitiae eius quas fecit sanguinem vero eius de manu tua requiram
21si autem tu adnuntiaveris iusto ut non peccet iustus et ille non peccaverit vivens vivet quia adnuntiasti ei et tu animam tuam liberasti
22et facta est super me manus Domini et dixit ad me surgens egredere in campum et ibi loquar tecum
23et surgens egressus sum in campum et ecce ibi gloria Domini stabat quasi gloria quam vidi iuxta fluvium Chobar et cecidi in faciem meam
24et ingressus est in me spiritus et statuit me super pedes meos et locutus est mihi et dixit ad me ingredere et includere in medio domus tuae
25et tu fili hominis ecce data sunt super te vincula et ligabunt te in eis et non egredieris in medio eorum
26et linguam tuam adherescere faciam palato tuo et eris mutus nec quasi vir obiurgans quia domus exasperans est
27cum autem locutus fuero tibi aperiam os tuum et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus Deus qui audit audiat et qui quiescit quiescat quia domus exasperans est
