The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 50 (Latin)
1Thus saith the LORD, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.
2Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.
3I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.
4The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.
5The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
6I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
7For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
8He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.
9Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.
10Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.
11Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.
1haec dicit Dominus quis est hic liber repudii matris vestrae quo dimisi eam aut quis est creditor meus cui vendidi vos ecce in iniquitatibus vestris venditi estis et in sceleribus vestris dimisi matrem vestram
2quia veni et non erat vir vocavi et non erat qui audiret numquid adbreviata et parvula facta est manus mea ut non possim redimere aut non est in me virtus ad liberandum ecce in increpatione mea desertum faciam mare ponam flumina in siccum conputrescent pisces sine aqua et morientur in siti
3induam caelos tenebris et saccum ponam operimentum eorum
4Dominus dedit mihi linguam eruditam ut sciam sustentare eum qui lassus est verbo erigit mane mane erigit mihi aurem ut audiam quasi magistrum
5Dominus Deus aperuit mihi aurem ego autem non contradico retrorsum non abii
6corpus meum dedi percutientibus et genas meas vellentibus faciem meam non averti ab increpantibus et conspuentibus
7Dominus Deus auxiliator meus ideo non sum confusus ideo posui faciem meam ut petram durissimam et scio quoniam non confundar
8iuxta est qui iustificat me quis contradicet mihi stemus simul quis est adversarius meus accedat ad me
9ecce Dominus Deus auxiliator meus quis est qui condemnet me ecce omnes quasi vestimentum conterentur tinea comedet eos
10quis ex vobis timens Dominum audiens vocem servi sui qui ambulavit in tenebris et non est lumen ei speret in nomine Domini et innitatur super Deum suum
11ecce omnes vos accendentes ignem accincti flammis ambulate in lumine ignis vestri et in flammis quas succendistis de manu mea factum est hoc vobis in doloribus dormietis
