The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 34 (Latin)
1Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
2For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
3Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
4And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
5For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
6The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
7And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
8For it is the day of the LORD's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
9And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
10It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
11But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
12They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.
13And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.
14The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
15There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.
16Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
17And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
1accedite gentes et audite et populi adtendite audiat terra et plenitudo eius orbis et omne germen eius
2quia indignatio Domini super omnes gentes et furor super universam militiam eorum interfecit eos et dedit eos in occisionem
3interfecti eorum proicientur et de cadaveribus eorum ascendet fetor tabescent montes sanguine eorum
4et tabescet omnis militia caelorum et conplicabuntur sicut liber caeli et omnis militia eorum defluet sicut defluit folium de vinea et de ficu
5quoniam inebriatus est in caelo gladius meus ecce super Idumeam descendet et super populum interfectionis meae ad iudicium
6gladius Domini repletus est sanguine incrassatus est adipe de sanguine agnorum et hircorum de sanguine medullatorum arietum victima enim Domini in Bosra et interfectio magna in terra Edom
7et descendent unicornes cum eis et tauri cum potentibus inebriabitur terra eorum sanguine et humus eorum adipe pinguium
8quia dies ultionis Domini annus retributionum iudicii Sion
9et convertentur torrentes eius in picem et humus eius in sulphur et erit terra eius in picem ardentem
10nocte et die non extinguetur in sempiternum ascendet fumus eius a generatione in generationem desolabitur in saeculum saeculorum non erit transiens per eam
11et possidebunt illam onocrotalus et ericius et ibis et corvus habitabunt in ea et extendetur super eam mensura ut redigatur ad nihilum et perpendiculum in desolationem
12nobiles eius non erunt ibi regem potius invocabunt et omnes principes eius erunt in nihilum
13et orientur in domibus eius spinae et urticae et paliurus in munitionibus eius et erit cubile draconum et pascua strutionum
14et occurrent daemonia onocentauris et pilosus clamabit alter ad alterum ibi cubavit lamia et invenit sibi requiem
15ibi habuit foveam ericius et enutrivit catulos et circumfodit et fovit in umbra eius illuc congregati sunt milvi alter ad alterum
16requirite diligenter in libro Domini et legite unum ex eis non defuit alter ad alterum non quaesivit quia quod ex ore meo procedit ille mandavit et spiritus eius ipse congregavit ea
17et ipse misit eis sortem et manus eius divisit eam illis in mensuram usque in aeternum possidebunt eam in generatione et generatione habitabunt in ea
