The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 13 (Latin)
1The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.
2Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.
3I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
4The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.
5They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.
6Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
8And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
14And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.
15Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
16Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
17Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.
18Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children.
19And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
21But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.
22And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
1onus Babylonis quod vidit Isaias filius Amos
2super montem caligosum levate signum exaltate vocem levate manum et ingrediantur portas duces
3ego mandavi sanctificatis meis et vocavi fortes meos in ira mea exultantes in gloria mea
4vox multitudinis in montibus quasi populorum frequentium vox sonitus regum gentium congregatarum Dominus exercituum praecepit militiae belli
5venientibus de terra procul a summitate caeli Dominus et vasa furoris eius ut disperdat omnem terram
6ululate quia prope est dies Domini quasi vastitas a Domino veniet
7propter hoc omnes manus dissolventur et omne cor hominis tabescet
8et conteretur tortiones et dolores tenebunt quasi parturiens dolebunt unusquisque ad proximum suum stupebit facies conbustae vultus eorum
9ecce dies Domini venit crudelis et indignationis plenus et irae furorisque ad ponendam terram in solitudine et peccatores eius conterendos de ea
10quoniam stellae caeli et splendor earum non expandent lumen suum obtenebratus est sol in ortu suo et luna non splendebit in lumine suo
11et visitabo super orbis mala et contra impios iniquitatem eorum et quiescere faciam superbiam infidelium et arrogantiam fortium humiliabo
12pretiosior erit vir auro et homo mundo obrizo
13super hoc caelum turbabo et movebitur terra de loco suo propter indignationem Domini exercituum et propter diem irae furoris eius
14et erit quasi dammula fugiens et quasi ovis et non erit qui congreget unusquisque ad populum suum convertetur et singuli ad terram suam fugient
15omnis qui inventus fuerit occidetur et omnis qui supervenerit cadet in gladio
16infantes eorum adlident in oculis eorum diripientur domus eorum et uxores eorum violabuntur
17ecce ego suscitabo super eos Medos qui argentum non quaerant nec aurum velint
18sed sagittis parvulos interficiant et lactantibus uteri non misereantur et super filios non parcat oculus eorum
19et erit Babylon illa gloriosa in regnis inclita in superbia Chaldeorum sicut subvertit Deus Sodomam et Gomorram
20non habitabitur usque in finem et non fundabitur usque ad generationem et generationem nec ponet ibi tentoria Arabs nec pastores requiescent ibi
21sed requiescent ibi bestiae et replebuntur domus eorum draconibus et habitabunt ibi strutiones et pilosi saltabunt ibi
22et respondebunt ibi ululae in aedibus eius et sirenae in delubris voluptatis
