The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 37 (Latin)
1And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.
2And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, unto Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.
3And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
4It may be the LORD thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.
5So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.
6And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say unto your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words that thou hast heard, wherewith the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.
7Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.
8So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.
9And he heard say concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, He is come forth to make war with thee. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,
10Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom thou trustest, deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.
11Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shalt thou be delivered?
12Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Telassar?
13Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arphad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?
14And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.
15And Hezekiah prayed unto the LORD, saying,
16O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.
17Incline thine ear, O LORD, and hear; open thine eyes, O LORD, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.
18Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,
19And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.
20Now therefore, O LORD our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD, even thou only.
21Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:
22This is the word which the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.
23Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
24By thy servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said, By the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the height of his border, and the forest of his Carmel.
25I have digged, and drunk water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.
26Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.
27Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
28But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.
29Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.
30And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.
31And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:
32For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
33Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.
34By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.
35For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
36Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
37So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.
38And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.
1et factum est cum audisset rex Ezechias scidit vestimenta sua et obvolutus est sacco et intravit in domum Domini
2et misit Eliachim qui erat super domum et Sobnam scribam et seniores de sacerdotibus opertos saccis ad Isaiam filium Amos prophetam
3et dixerunt ad eum haec dicit Ezechias dies tribulationis et correptionis et blasphemiae dies haec quia venerunt filii usque ad partum et virtus non est parienti
4si quo modo audiat Dominus Deus tuus verba Rabsaces quem misit rex Assyriorum dominus suus ad blasphemandum Deum viventem et obprobrandum sermonibus quos audivit Dominus Deus tuus leva ergo orationem pro reliquiis quae reppertae sunt
5et venerunt servi regis Ezechiae ad Isaiam
6et dixit ad eos Isaias haec dicetis domino vestro haec dicit Dominus ne timeas a facie verborum quae audisti quibus blasphemaverunt pueri regis Assyriorum me
7ecce ego dabo ei spiritum et audiet nuntium et revertetur ad terram suam et corruere eum faciam gladio in terra sua
8reversus est autem Rabsaces et invenit regem Assyriorum proeliantem adversus Lobna audierat enim quia profectus esset de Lachis
9et audivit de Tharaca rege Aethiopiae dicentes egressus est ut pugnet contra te quod cum audisset misit nuntios ad Ezechiam dicens
10haec dicetis Ezechiae regi Iudae loquentes non te decipiat Deus tuus in quo tu confidis dicens non dabitur Hierusalem in manu regis Assyriorum
11ecce tu audisti omnia quae fecerunt reges Assyriorum omnibus terris quas subverterunt et tu poteris liberari
12numquid eruerunt eos dii gentium quos subverterunt patres mei Gozan et Aran et Reseph et filios Eden qui erant in Thalassar
13ubi est rex Emath et rex Arfad et rex urbis Seffarvaim Anahe et Ava
14et tulit Ezechias libros de manu nuntiorum et legit eos et ascendit in domum Domini et expandit eos Ezechias coram Domino
15et oravit Ezechias ad Dominum dicens
16Domine exercituum Deus Israhel qui sedes super cherubin tu es Deus solus omnium regnorum terrae tu fecisti caelum et terram
17inclina Domine aurem tuam et audi aperi Domine oculos tuos et vide et audi omnia verba Sennacherib quae misit ad blasphemandum Deum viventem
18vere enim Domine desertas fecerunt reges Assyriorum terras et regiones earum
19et dederunt deos earum igni non enim erant dii sed opera manuum hominum lignum et lapis et comminuerunt eos
20et nunc Domine Deus noster salva nos de manu eius et cognoscant omnia regna terrae quia tu es Dominus solus
21et misit Isaias filius Amos ad Ezechiam dicens haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel pro quibus rogasti me de Sennacherib rege Assyriorum
22hoc est verbum quod locutus est Dominus super eum despexit te subsannavit te virgo filia Sion post te caput movit filia Hierusalem
23cui exprobrasti et quem blasphemasti et super quem exaltasti vocem et levasti altitudinem oculorum tuorum ad Sanctum Israhel
24in manu servorum tuorum exprobrasti Domino et dixisti in multitudine quadrigarum mearum ego ascendi altitudinem montium iuga Libani et succidam excelsa cedrorum eius electas abietes illius et introibo altitudinem summitatis eius saltum Carmeli eius
25ego fodi et bibi aquam et exsiccavi vestigio pedis mei omnes rivos aggerum
26numquid non audisti quae olim fecerim ei ex diebus antiquis ego plasmavi illud et nunc adduxi et factum est in eradicationem collium conpugnantium et civitatum munitarum
27habitatores earum breviata manu contremuerunt et confusi sunt facti sunt sicut faenum agri et gramen pascuae et herba tectorum quae exaruit antequam maturesceret
28habitationem tuam et egressum tuum et introitum tuum cognovi et insaniam tuam contra me
29cum fureres adversum me superbia tua ascendit in aures meas ponam ergo circulum in naribus tuis et frenum in labiis tuis et reducam te in viam per quam venisti
30tibi autem hoc erit signum comede hoc anno quae sponte nascuntur et in anno secundo pomis vescere in anno autem tertio seminate et metite et plantate vineas et comedite fructum earum
31et mittet id quod salvatum fuerit de domo Iuda et quod reliquum est radicem deorsum et faciet fructum sursum
32quia de Hierusalem exibunt reliquiae et salvatio de monte Sion zelus Domini exercituum faciet istud
33propterea haec dicit Dominus de rege Assyriorum non introibit civitatem hanc et non iaciet ibi sagittam et non occupabit eam clypeus et non mittet in circuitu eius aggerem
34in via qua venit per eam revertetur et civitatem hanc non ingredietur dicit Dominus
35et protegam civitatem istam ut salvem eam propter me et propter David servum meum
36egressus est autem angelus Domini et percussit in castris Assyriorum centum octoginta quinque milia et surrexerunt mane et ecce omnes cadavera mortuorum
37et egressus est et abiit et reversus est Sennacherib rex Assyriorum et habitavit in Nineve
38et factum est cum adoraret in templo Nesrach deum suum Adramelech et Sarasar filii eius percusserunt eum gladio fugeruntque in terram Ararat et regnavit Asoraddon filius eius pro eo
