The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, Chapter 8 (Latin)
1And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.
2Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.
3And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
4And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
5Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
6He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.
7And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.
8Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
9And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
10So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
11And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.
12Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.
13He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
14Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
15Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
16And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
17Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
18Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
1et factum est in anno sexto in sexto mense in quinta mensis ego sedebam in domo mea et senes Iuda sedebant coram me et cecidit super me ibi manus Domini Dei
2et vidi et ecce similitudo quasi aspectus ignis ab aspectu lumborum eius et deorsum ignis et a lumbis eius et sursum quasi aspectus splendoris ut visio electri
3et emissa similitudo manus adprehendit me in cincinno capitis mei et elevavit me spiritus inter terram et caelum et adduxit in Hierusalem in visione Dei iuxta ostium interius quod respiciebat aquilonem ubi erat statutum idolum zeli ad provocandam aemulationem
4et ecce ibi gloria Dei Israhel secundum visionem quam videram in campo
5et dixit ad me fili hominis leva oculos tuos ad viam aquilonis et levavi oculos meos ad viam aquilonis et ecce ab aquilone portae altaris idolum zeli in ipso introitu
6et dixit ad me fili hominis putasne vides tu quid isti faciant abominationes magnas quas domus Israhel facit hic ut procul recedam a sanctuario meo et adhuc conversus videbis abominationes maiores
7et introduxit me ad ostium atrii et vidi et ecce foramen unum in pariete
8et dixit ad me fili hominis fode parietem et cum perfodissem parietem apparuit ostium unum
9et dixit ad me ingredere et vide abominationes pessimas quas isti faciunt hic
10et ingressus vidi et ecce omnis similitudo reptilium et animalium abominatio et universa idola domus Israhel depicta erant in pariete in circuitu per totum
11et septuaginta viri de senioribus domus Israhel et Hiezonias filius Saphan stabat in medio eorum stantium ante picturas et unusquisque habebat turibulum in manu sua et vapor nebulae de ture consurgebat
12et dixit ad me certe vides fili hominis quae seniores domus Israhel faciunt in tenebris unusquisque in abscondito cubiculi sui dicunt enim non videt Dominus nos dereliquit Dominus terram
13et dixit ad me adhuc conversus videbis abominationes maiores quas isti faciunt
14et introduxit me per ostium portae domus Domini quod respiciebat ad aquilonem et ecce ibi mulieres sedebant plangentes Adonidem
15et dixit ad me certe vidisti fili hominis adhuc conversus videbis abominationes maiores his
16et introduxit me in atrium domus Domini interius et ecce in ostio templi Domini inter vestibulum et altare quasi viginti quinque viri dorsa habentes contra templum Domini et facies ad orientem et adorabant ad ortum solis
17et dixit ad me certe vidisti fili hominis numquid leve est hoc domui Iuda ut facerent abominationes istas quas fecerunt hic quia replentes terram iniquitate conversi sunt ad inritandum me et ecce adplicant ramum ad nares suas
18ergo et ego faciam in furore non parcet oculus meus nec miserebor et cum clamaverint ad aures meas voce magna non exaudiam eos
