The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 2 (Latin)
1The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
6Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
8Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
9And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
10Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
11The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
12For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
13And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,
14And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,
15And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,
16And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.
17And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
18And the idols he shall utterly abolish.
19And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
20In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
21To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
22Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
1verbum quod vidit Isaias filius Amos super Iudam et Hierusalem
2et erit in novissimis diebus praeparatus mons domus Domini in vertice montium et elevabitur super colles et fluent ad eum omnes gentes
3et ibunt populi multi et dicent venite et ascendamus ad montem Domini et ad domum Dei Iacob et docebit nos vias suas et ambulabimus in semitis eius quia de Sion exibit lex et verbum Domini de Hierusalem
4et iudicabit gentes et arguet populos multos et conflabunt gladios suos in vomeres et lanceas suas in falces non levabit gens contra gentem gladium nec exercebuntur ultra ad proelium
5domus Iacob venite et ambulemus in lumine Domini
6proiecisti enim populum tuum domum Iacob quia repleti sunt ut olim et augures habuerunt ut Philisthim et pueris alienis adheserunt
7repleta est terra argento et auro et non est finis thesaurorum eius
8et repleta est terra eius equis et innumerabiles quadrigae eius et repleta est terra eius idolis opus manuum suarum adoraverunt quod fecerunt digiti eorum
9et incurvavit se homo et humiliatus est vir ne ergo dimittas eis
10ingredere in petram abscondere fossa humo a facie timoris Domini et a gloria maiestatis eius
11oculi sublimis hominis humiliati sunt et incurvabitur altitudo virorum exaltabitur autem Dominus solus in die illa
12quia dies Domini exercituum super omnem superbum et excelsum et super omnem arrogantem et humiliabitur
13et super omnes cedros Libani sublimes et erectas et super omnes quercus Basan
14et super omnes montes excelsos et super omnes colles elevatos
15et super omnem turrem excelsam et super omnem murum munitum
16et super omnes naves Tharsis et super omne quod visu pulchrum est
17et incurvabitur sublimitas hominum et humiliabitur altitudo virorum et elevabitur Dominus solus in die illa
18et idola penitus conterentur
19et introibunt in speluncas petrarum et in voragines terrae a facie formidinis Domini et a gloria maiestatis eius cum surrexerit percutere terram
20in die illa proiciet homo idola argenti sui et simulacra auri sui quae fecerat sibi ut adoraret talpas et vespertiliones
21et ingredietur fissuras petrarum et cavernas saxorum a facie formidinis Domini et a gloria maiestatis eius cum surrexerit percutere terram
22quiescite ergo ab homine cuius spiritus in naribus eius quia excelsus reputatus est ipse
