The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 46 (Latin)
1Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.
2They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.
3Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb:
4And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
5To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?
6They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god: they fall down, yea, they worship.
7They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he standeth; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry unto him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his trouble.
8Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
9Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
11Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
12Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:
13I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
1conflatus est Bel contritus est Nabo facta sunt simulacra eorum bestiis et iumentis onera vestra gravi pondere usque ad lassitudinem
2contabuerunt et contrita sunt simul non potuerunt salvare portantem et anima eorum in captivitatem ibit
3audite me domus Iacob et omne residuum domus Israhel qui portamini a meo utero qui gestamini a mea vulva
4usque ad senectam ego ipse et usque ad canos ego portabo ego feci et ego feram et ego portabo et salvabo
5cui adsimilastis me et adaequastis et conparastis me et fecistis similem
6qui confertis aurum de sacculo et argentum statera ponderatis conducentes aurificem ut faciat deum et procidunt et adorant
7portant illud in umeris gestantes et ponentes in loco suo et stabit ac de loco suo non movebitur sed et cum clamaverint ad eum non audiet de tribulatione non salvabit eos
8mementote istud et fundamini redite praevaricatores ad cor
9recordamini prioris saeculi quoniam ego sum Deus et non est ultra Deus nec est similis mei
10adnuntians ab exordio novissimum et ab initio quae necdum facta sunt dicens consilium meum stabit et omnis voluntas mea fiet
11vocans ab oriente avem et de terra longinqua virum voluntatis meae et locutus sum et adducam illud creavi et faciam illud
12audite me duro corde qui longe estis a iustitia
13prope feci iustitiam meam non elongabitur et salus mea non morabitur dabo in Sion salutem et Israheli gloriam meam
