The Holy Bible - The First Book of Samuel, Chapter 7 (Latin)
1And the men of Kirjathjearim came, and fetched up the ark of the LORD, and brought it into the house of Abinadab in the hill, and sanctified Eleazar his son to keep the ark of the LORD.
2And it came to pass, while the ark abode in Kirjathjearim, that the time was long; for it was twenty years: and all the house of Israel lamented after the LORD.
3And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.
4Then the children of Israel did put away Baalim and Ashtaroth, and served the LORD only.
5And Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpeh, and I will pray for you unto the LORD.
6And they gathered together to Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured it out before the LORD, and fasted on that day, and said there, We have sinned against the LORD. And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpeh.
7And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Mizpeh, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid of the Philistines.
8And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the LORD our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines.
9And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the LORD: and Samuel cried unto the LORD for Israel; and the LORD heard him.
10And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel.
11And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Bethcar.
12Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.
13So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into the coast of Israel: and the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.
14And the cities which the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron even unto Gath; and the coasts thereof did Israel deliver out of the hands of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites.
15And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life.
16And he went from year to year in circuit to Bethel, and Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all those places.
17And his return was to Ramah; for there was his house; and there he judged Israel; and there he built an altar unto the LORD.
1venerunt ergo viri Cariathiarim et duxerunt arcam Domini et intulerunt eam in domum Abinadab in Gabaa Eleazarum autem filium eius sanctificaverunt ut custodiret arcam Domini
2et factum est ex qua die mansit arca in Cariathiarim multiplicati sunt dies erat quippe iam annus vicesimus et requievit omnis domus Israhel post Dominum
3ait autem Samuhel ad universam domum Israhel dicens si in toto corde vestro revertimini ad Dominum auferte deos alienos de medio vestrum et Astharoth et praeparate corda vestra Domino et servite ei soli et eruet vos de manu Philisthim
4abstulerunt ergo filii Israhel Baalim et Astharoth et servierunt Domino soli
5dixit autem Samuhel congregate universum Israhel in Masphat ut orem pro vobis Dominum
6et convenerunt in Masphat hauseruntque aquam et effuderunt in conspectu Domini et ieiunaverunt in die illa et dixerunt ibi peccavimus Domino iudicavitque Samuhel filios Israhel in Masphat
7et audierunt Philisthim quod congregati essent filii Israhel in Masphat et ascenderunt satrapae Philisthinorum ad Israhel quod cum audissent filii Israhel timuerunt a facie Philisthinorum
8dixeruntque ad Samuhel ne cesses pro nobis clamare ad Dominum Deum nostrum ut salvet nos de manu Philisthinorum
9tulit autem Samuhel agnum lactantem unum et obtulit illum holocaustum integrum Domino et clamavit Samuhel ad Dominum pro Israhel et exaudivit eum Dominus
10factum est ergo cum Samuhel offerret holocaustum Philistheos inire proelium contra Israhel intonuit autem Dominus fragore magno in die illa super Philisthim et exterruit eos et caesi sunt a filiis Israhel
11egressique viri Israhel de Masphat persecuti sunt Philistheos et percusserunt eos usque ad locum qui erat subter Bethchar
12tulit autem Samuhel lapidem unum et posuit eum inter Masphat et inter Sen et vocavit nomen eius lapis Adiutorii dixitque hucusque auxiliatus est nobis Dominus
13et humiliati sunt Philisthim nec adposuerunt ultra ut venirent in terminos Israhel facta est itaque manus Domini super Philistheos cunctis diebus Samuhel
14et redditae sunt urbes quas tulerant Philisthim ab Israhel Israheli ab Accaron usque Geth et terminos suos liberavit Israhel de manu Philisthinorum eratque pax inter Israhel et Amorreum
15iudicabat quoque Samuhel Israhel cunctis diebus vitae suae
16et ibat per singulos annos circumiens Bethel et Galgal et Masphat et iudicabat Israhelem in supradictis locis
17revertebaturque in Ramatha ibi enim erat domus eius et ibi iudicabat Israhelem aedificavit etiam ibi altare Domino
