The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 31 (Latin)
1Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
2Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.
3Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
4For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
5As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.
6Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.
7For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.
8Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.
9And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.
1vae qui descendunt in Aegyptum ad auxilium in equis sperantes et habentes fiduciam super quadrigis quia multae sunt et super equitibus quia praevalidi nimis et non sunt confisi super Sanctum Israhel et Dominum non requisierunt
2ipse autem sapiens adduxit malum et verba sua non abstulit et consurget contra domum pessimorum et contra auxilium operantium iniquitatem
3Aegyptus homo et non deus et equi eorum caro et non spiritus et Dominus inclinabit manum suam et corruet auxiliator et cadet cui praestatur auxilium simulque omnes consumentur
4quia haec dicit Dominus ad me quomodo si rugiat leo et catulus leonis super praedam suam cum occurrerit ei multitudo pastorum a voce eorum non formidabit et a multitudine eorum non pavebit sic descendet Dominus exercituum ut proelietur super montem Sion et super collem eius
5sicut aves volantes sic proteget Dominus exercituum Hierusalem protegens et liberans transiens et salvans
6convertimini sicut in profundum recesseratis filii Israhel
7in die enim illa abiciet vir idola argenti sui et idola auri sui quae fecerunt vobis manus vestrae in peccatum
8et cadet Assur in gladio non viri et gladius non hominis vorabit eum et fugiet non a facie gladii et iuvenes eius vectigales erunt
9et fortitudo eius a terrore transibit et pavebunt fugientes principes eius dixit Dominus cuius ignis est in Sion et caminus eius in Hierusalem
