The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 39 (Latin)
1At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.
2And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.
3Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon.
4Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.
5Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the LORD of hosts:
6Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.
7And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.
8Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the LORD which thou hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.
1in tempore illo misit Marodach Baladan filius Baladan rex Babylonis libros et munera ad Ezechiam audierat enim quod aegrotasset et convaluisset
2laetatus est autem super eis Ezechias et ostendit eis cellam aromatum et argenti et auri et odoramentorum et unguenti optimi et omnes apothecas supellectilis suae et universa quae inventa sunt in thesauris eius non fuit verbum quod non ostenderet eis Ezechias in domo sua et in omni potestate sua
3introiit autem Isaias propheta ad regem Ezechiam et dixit ei quid dixerunt viri isti et unde venerunt ad te et dixit Ezechias de terra longinqua venerunt ad me de Babylone
4et dixit quid viderunt in domo tua et dixit Ezechias omnia quae in domo mea sunt viderunt non fuit res quam non ostenderim eis in thesauris meis
5et dixit Isaias ad Ezechiam audi verbum Domini exercituum
6ecce dies venient et auferentur omnia quae in domo tua sunt et quae thesaurizaverunt patres tui usque ad diem hanc in Babylonem non relinquetur quicquam dicit Dominus
7et de filiis tuis qui exibunt de te quos genueris tollent et erunt eunuchi in palatio regis Babylonis
8et dixit Ezechias ad Isaiam bonum verbum Domini quod locutus est et dixit fiat tantum pax et veritas in diebus meis
