The Holy Bible - The Second Book of Moses: Called Exodus, Chapter 32 (Latin)
1And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
2And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
3And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
4And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
5And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.
6And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
7And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
8They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
9And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
10Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.
11And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?
12Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.
13Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.
14And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.
15And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.
16And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.
17And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.
18And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.
19And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.
20And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.
21And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?
22And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.
23For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
24And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.
25And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)
26Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
27And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.
28And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.
29For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.
30And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.
31And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
32Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
33And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
34Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.
35And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.
1videns autem populus quod moram faceret descendendi de monte Moses congregatus adversus Aaron ait surge fac nobis deos qui nos praecedant Mosi enim huic viro qui nos eduxit de terra Aegypti ignoramus quid acciderit
2dixitque ad eos Aaron tollite inaures aureas de uxorum filiorumque et filiarum vestrarum auribus et adferte ad me
3fecit populus quae iusserat deferens inaures ad Aaron
4quas cum ille accepisset formavit opere fusorio et fecit ex eis vitulum conflatilem dixeruntque hii sunt dii tui Israhel qui te eduxerunt de terra Aegypti
5quod cum vidisset Aaron aedificavit altare coram eo et praeconis voce clamavit dicens cras sollemnitas Domini est
6surgentesque mane obtulerunt holocausta et hostias pacificas et sedit populus comedere ac bibere et surrexerunt ludere
7locutus est autem Dominus ad Mosen vade descende peccavit populus tuus quem eduxisti de terra Aegypti
8recesserunt cito de via quam ostendisti eis feceruntque sibi vitulum conflatilem et adoraverunt atque immolantes ei hostias dixerunt isti sunt dii tui Israhel qui te eduxerunt de terra Aegypti
9rursumque ait Dominus ad Mosen cerno quod populus iste durae cervicis sit
10dimitte me ut irascatur furor meus contra eos et deleam eos faciamque te in gentem magnam
11Moses autem orabat Dominum Deum suum dicens cur Domine irascitur furor tuus contra populum tuum quem eduxisti de terra Aegypti in fortitudine magna et in manu robusta
12ne quaeso dicant Aegyptii callide eduxit eos ut interficeret in montibus et deleret e terra quiescat ira tua et esto placabilis super nequitia populi tui
13recordare Abraham Isaac et Israhel servorum tuorum quibus iurasti per temet ipsum dicens multiplicabo semen vestrum sicut stellas caeli et universam terram hanc de qua locutus sum dabo semini vestro et possidebitis eam semper
14placatusque est Dominus ne faceret malum quod locutus fuerat adversus populum suum
15et reversus est Moses de monte portans duas tabulas testimonii manu scriptas ex utraque parte
16et factas opere Dei scriptura quoque Dei erat sculpta in tabulis
17audiens autem Iosue tumultum populi vociferantis dixit ad Mosen ululatus pugnae auditur in castris
18qui respondit non est clamor adhortantium ad pugnam neque vociferatio conpellentium ad fugam sed vocem cantantium ego audio
19cumque adpropinquasset ad castra vidit vitulum et choros iratusque valde proiecit de manu tabulas et confregit eas ad radices montis
20arripiensque vitulum quem fecerant conbusit et contrivit usque ad pulverem quem sparsit in aqua et dedit ex eo potum filiis Israhel
21dixitque ad Aaron quid tibi fecit hic populus ut induceres super eum peccatum maximum
22cui ille respondit ne indignetur dominus meus tu enim nosti populum istum quod pronus sit ad malum
23dixerunt mihi fac nobis deos qui praecedant nos huic enim Mosi qui nos eduxit de terra Aegypti nescimus quid acciderit
24quibus ego dixi quis vestrum habet aurum tulerunt et dederunt mihi et proieci illud in ignem egressusque est hic vitulus
25videns ergo Moses populum quod esset nudatus spoliaverat enim eum Aaron propter ignominiam sordis et inter hostes nudum constituerat
26et stans in porta castrorum ait si quis est Domini iungatur mihi congregatique sunt ad eum omnes filii Levi
27quibus ait haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel ponat vir gladium super femur suum ite et redite de porta usque ad portam per medium castrorum et occidat unusquisque fratrem et amicum et proximum suum
28fecerunt filii Levi iuxta sermonem Mosi cecideruntque in die illo quasi tria milia hominum
29et ait Moses consecrastis manus vestras hodie Domino unusquisque in filio et fratre suo ut detur vobis benedictio
30facto autem die altero locutus est Moses ad populum peccastis peccatum maximum ascendam ad Dominum si quo modo eum quivero deprecari pro scelere vestro
31reversusque ad Dominum ait obsecro peccavit populus iste peccatum magnum feceruntque sibi deos aureos aut dimitte eis hanc noxam
32aut si non facis dele me de libro tuo quem scripsisti
33cui respondit Dominus qui peccaverit mihi delebo eum de libro meo
34tu autem vade et duc populum istum quo locutus sum tibi angelus meus praecedet te ego autem in die ultionis visitabo et hoc peccatum eorum
35percussit ergo Dominus populum pro reatu vituli quem fecit Aaron
