The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 56 (Latin)
1Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
2Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
3Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
4For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
5Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
6Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
7Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
8The Lord GOD, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
9All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
10His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
11Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
12Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.
1haec dicit Dominus custodite iudicium et facite iustitiam quia iuxta est salus mea ut veniat et iustitia mea ut reveletur
2beatus vir qui facit hoc et filius hominis qui adprehendit istud custodiens sabbatum ne polluat illud custodiens manus suas ne faciat omne malum
3et non dicat filius advenae qui adheret Domino dicens separatione dividet me Dominus a populo suo et non dicat eunuchus ecce ego lignum aridum
4quia haec dicit Dominus eunuchis qui custodierint sabbata mea et elegerint quae volui et tenuerint foedus meum
5dabo eis in domo mea et in muris meis locum et nomen melius a filiis et filiabus nomen sempiternum dabo eis quod non peribit
6et filios advenae qui adherent Domino ut colant eum et diligant nomen eius ut sint ei in servos omnem custodientem sabbatum ne polluat illud et tenentem foedus meum
7adducam eos in montem sanctum meum et laetificabo eos in domo orationis meae holocausta eorum et victimae eorum placebunt mihi super altari meo quia domus mea domus orationis vocabitur cunctis populis
8ait Dominus Deus qui congregat dispersos Israhel adhuc congregabo ad eum congregatos eius
9omnes bestiae agri venite ad devorandum universae bestiae saltus
10speculatores eius caeci omnes nescierunt universi canes muti non valentes latrare videntes vana dormientes et amantes somnia
11et canes inpudentissimi nescierunt saturitatem ipsi pastores ignoraverunt intellegentiam omnes in viam suam declinaverunt unusquisque ad avaritiam suam a summo usque ad novissimum
12venite sumamus vinum et impleamur ebrietate et erit sicut hodie sic et cras et multo amplius
