The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Kings, Chapter 21 (Latin)
1And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria.
2And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
3And Naboth said to Ahab, The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee.
4And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.
5But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?
6And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.
7And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.
8So she wrote letters in Ahab's name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth.
9And she wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people:
10And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die.
11And the men of his city, even the elders and the nobles who were the inhabitants in his city, did as Jezebel had sent unto them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent unto them.
12They proclaimed a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people.
13And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before him: and the men of Belial witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died.
14Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead.
15And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.
16And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.
17And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
18Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it.
19And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.
20And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.
21Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel,
22And will make thine house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the provocation wherewith thou hast provoked me to anger, and made Israel to sin.
23And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
24Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat.
25But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.
26And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all things as did the Amorites, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
27And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.
28And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
29Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.
1post verba autem haec vinea erat Naboth Hiezrahelitae qui erat in Hiezrahel iuxta palatium Ahab regis Samariae
2locutus est ergo Ahab ad Naboth dicens da mihi vineam tuam ut faciam mihi hortum holerum quia vicina est et prope domum meam daboque tibi pro ea vineam meliorem aut si tibi commodius putas argenti pretium quanto digna est
3cui respondit Naboth propitius mihi sit Dominus ne dem hereditatem patrum meorum tibi
4venit ergo Ahab in domum suam indignans et frendens super verbo quod locutus fuerat ad eum Naboth Hiezrahelites dicens non do tibi hereditatem patrum meorum et proiciens se in lectulum suum avertit faciem ad parietem et non comedit panem
5ingressa est autem ad eum Hiezabel uxor sua dixitque ei quid est hoc unde anima tua contristata est et quare non comedis panem
6qui respondit ei locutus sum Naboth Hiezrahelitae et dixi ei da mihi vineam tuam accepta pecunia aut si tibi placet dabo tibi vineam pro ea et ille ait non do tibi vineam meam
7dixit ergo ad eum Hiezabel uxor eius grandis auctoritatis es et bene regis regnum Israhel surge et comede panem et aequo esto animo ego dabo tibi vineam Naboth Hiezrahelitae
8scripsit itaque litteras ex nomine Ahab et signavit eas anulo eius et misit ad maiores natu et ad optimates qui erant in civitate eius et habitabant cum Naboth
9litterarum autem erat ista sententia praedicate ieiunium et sedere facite Naboth inter primos populi
10et submittite duos viros filios Belial contra eum et falsum testimonium dicant benedixit Deum et regem et educite eum et lapidate sicque moriatur
11fecerunt ergo cives eius maiores natu et optimates qui habitabant cum eo in urbe sicut praeceperat eis Hiezabel et sicut scriptum erat in litteris quas miserat ad eos
12praedicaverunt ieiunium et sedere fecerunt Naboth inter primos populi
13et adductis duobus viris filiis diaboli fecerunt eos sedere contra eum at illi scilicet ut viri diabolici dixerunt contra eum testimonium coram multitudine benedixit Naboth Deo et regi quam ob rem eduxerunt eum extra civitatem et lapidibus interfecerunt
14miseruntque ad Hiezabel dicentes lapidatus est Naboth et mortuus est
15factum est autem cum audisset Hiezabel lapidatum Naboth et mortuum locuta est ad Ahab surge posside vineam Naboth Hiezrahelitae qui noluit tibi adquiescere et dare eam accepta pecunia non enim vivit Naboth sed mortuus est
16quod cum audisset Ahab mortuum videlicet Naboth surrexit et descendebat in vineam Naboth Hiezrahelitae ut possideret eam
17factus est igitur sermo Domini ad Heliam Thesbiten dicens
18surge et descende in occursum Ahab regis Israhel qui est in Samaria ecce ad vineam Naboth descendit ut possideat eam
19et loqueris ad eum dicens haec dicit Dominus occidisti insuper et possedisti et post haec addes haec dicit Dominus in loco hoc in quo linxerunt canes sanguinem Naboth lambent tuum quoque sanguinem
20et ait Ahab ad Heliam num invenisti me inimice mee qui dixit inveni eo quod venundatus sis ut faceres malum in conspectu Domini
21ecce ego inducam super te malum et demetam posteriora tua et interficiam de Ahab mingentem ad parietem et clausum et ultimum in Israhel
22et dabo domum tuam sicut domum Hieroboam filii Nabath et sicut domum Baasa filii Ahia quia egisti ut me ad iracundiam provocares et peccare fecisti Israhel
23sed et de Hiezabel locutus est Dominus dicens canes comedent Hiezabel in agro Hiezrahel
24si mortuus fuerit Ahab in civitate comedent eum canes si autem mortuus fuerit in agro comedent eum volucres caeli
25igitur non fuit alter talis ut Ahab qui venundatus est ut faceret malum in conspectu Domini concitavit enim eum Hiezabel uxor sua
26et abominabilis effectus est in tantum ut sequeretur idola quae fecerant Amorrei quos consumpsit Dominus a facie filiorum Israhel
27itaque cum audisset Ahab sermones istos scidit vestem suam et operuit cilicio carnem suam ieiunavitque et dormivit in sacco et ambulabat dimisso capite
28factus est autem sermo Domini ad Heliam Thesbiten dicens
29nonne vidisti humiliatum Ahab coram me quia igitur humiliatus est mei causa non inducam malum in diebus eius sed in diebus filii sui inferam malum domui eius
