The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 30 (Latin)
1Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
2That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.
4For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.
5They were all ashamed of a people that could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.
6The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.
7For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still.
8Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
9That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
10Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
11Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
12Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
13Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.
14And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.
15For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
16But ye said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.
17One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.
18And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
19For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
20And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:
21And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
22Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.
23Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.
24The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
25And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
26Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
27Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:
28And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.
29Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel.
30And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.
31For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.
32And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the LORD shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.
33For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.
1vae filii desertores dicit Dominus ut faceretis consilium et non ex me et ordiremini telam et non per spiritum meum ut adderetur peccatum super peccatum
2qui ambulatis ut descendatis in Aegyptum et os meum non interrogastis sperantes auxilium in fortitudine Pharao et habentes fiduciam in umbra Aegypti
3et erit vobis fortitudo Pharaonis in confusionem et fiducia umbrae Aegypti in ignominiam
4erant enim in Tanis principes tui et nuntii tui usque ad Anes pervenerunt
5omnes confusi sunt super populo qui eis prodesse non potuit non fuerunt in auxilium et in aliquam utilitatem sed in confusionem et obprobrium
6onus iumentorum austri in terra tribulationis et angustiae leaena et leo ex eis vipera et regulus volans portantes super umeros iumentorum divitias suas et super gibbum camelorum thesauros suos ad populum qui eis prodesse non poterit
7Aegyptus enim frustra et vane auxiliabitur ideo clamavi super hoc superbia tantum est quiesce
8nunc ingressus scribe eis super buxum et in libro diligenter exara illud et erit in die novissimo in testimonium usque ad aeternum
9populus enim ad iracundiam provocans est et filii mendaces filii nolentes audire legem Domini
10qui dicunt videntibus nolite videre et aspicientibus nolite aspicere nobis ea quae recta sunt loquimini nobis placentia videte nobis errores
11auferte a me viam declinate a me semitam cesset a facie nostra Sanctus Israhel
12propterea haec dicit Sanctus Israhel pro eo quod reprobastis verbum hoc et sperastis in calumniam et tumultum et innixi estis super eo
13propterea erit vobis iniquitas haec sicut interruptio cadens et requisita in muro excelso quoniam subito dum non speratur veniet contritio eius
14et comminuetur sicut conteritur lagoena figuli contritione pervalida et non invenietur de fragmentis eius testa in qua portetur igniculus de incendio aut hauriatur parum aquae de fovea
15quia haec dicit Dominus Deus Sanctus Israhel si revertamini et quiescatis salvi eritis in silentio et in spe erit fortitudo vestra et noluistis
16et dixistis nequaquam sed ad equos fugiemus ideo fugietis et super veloces ascendemus ideo veloces erunt qui persequentur vos
17mille homines a facie terroris unius et a facie terroris quinque fugietis donec relinquamini quasi malus navis in vertice montis et quasi signum super collem
18propterea expectat Dominus ut misereatur vestri et ideo exaltabitur parcens vobis quia Deus iudicii Dominus beati omnes qui expectant eum
19populus enim Sion habitabit in Hierusalem plorans nequaquam plorabis miserans miserebitur tui ad vocem clamoris tui statim ut audierit respondebit tibi
20et dabit vobis Dominus panem artum et aquam brevem et non faciet avolare a te ultra doctorem tuum et erunt oculi tui videntes praeceptorem tuum
21et aures tuae audient verbum post tergum monentis haec via ambulate in ea neque ad dexteram neque ad sinistram
22et contaminabis lamminas sculptilium argenti tui et vestimentum conflatilis auri tui et disperges ea sicut inmunditiam menstruatae egredere dices ei
23et dabitur pluvia semini tuo ubicumque seminaveris in terra et panis frugum terrae erit uberrimus et pinguis pascetur in possessione tua in die illo agnus spatiose
24et tauri tui et pulli asinorum qui operantur terram commixtum migma comedent sic in area ut ventilatum est
25et erunt super omnem montem excelsum et super omnem collem elevatum rivi currentium aquarum in die interfectionis multorum cum ceciderint turres
26et erit lux lunae sicut lux solis et lux solis erit septempliciter sicut lux septem dierum in die qua alligaverit Dominus vulnus populi sui et percussuram plagae eius sanaverit
27ecce nomen Domini venit de longinquo ardens furor eius et gravis ad portandum labia eius repleta sunt indignatione et lingua eius quasi ignis devorans
28spiritus eius velut torrens inundans usque ad medium colli ad perdendas gentes in nihilum et frenum erroris quod erat in maxillis populorum
29canticum erit vobis sicut nox sanctificatae sollemnitatis et laetitia cordis sicut qui pergit cum tibia ut intret in montem Domini ad Fortem Israhel
30et auditam faciet Dominus gloriam vocis suae et terrorem brachii sui ostendet in comminatione furoris et flamma ignis devorantis adlidet in turbine et in lapide grandinis
31a voce enim Domini pavebit Assur virga percussus
32et erit transitus virgae fundatus quam requiescere faciet Dominus super eum in tympanis et in citharis et in bellis praecipuis expugnabit eos
33praeparata est enim ab heri Thofeth a rege praeparata profunda et dilatata nutrimenta eius ignis et ligna multa flatus Domini sicut torrens sulphuris succendens eam
