The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Kings, Chapter 20 (Latin)
1In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.
2Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying,
3I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
4And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
5Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.
6And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
7And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.
8And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?
9And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?
10And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.
11And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.
12At that time Berodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present unto Hezekiah: for he had heard that Hezekiah had been sick.
13And Hezekiah hearkened unto them, and shewed them all the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.
14Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country, even from Babylon.
15And he said, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All the things that are in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.
16And Isaiah said unto Hezekiah, Hear the word of the LORD.
17Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.
18And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.
19Then said Hezekiah unto Isaiah, Good is the word of the LORD which thou hast spoken. And he said, Is it not good, if peace and truth be in my days?
20And the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might, and how he made a pool, and a conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
21And Hezekiah slept with his fathers: and Manasseh his son reigned in his stead.
1in diebus illis aegrotavit Ezechias usque ad mortem et venit ad eum Esaias filius Amos prophetes dixitque ei haec dicit Dominus Deus praecipe domui tuae morieris enim et non vives
2qui convertit faciem suam ad parietem et oravit Dominum dicens
3obsecro Domine memento quomodo ambulaverim coram te in veritate et in corde perfecto et quod placitum est coram te fecerim flevit itaque Ezechias fletu magno
4et antequam egrederetur Esaias mediam partem atrii factus est sermo Domini ad eum dicens
5revertere et dic Ezechiae duci populi mei haec dicit Dominus Deus David patris tui audivi orationem tuam vidi lacrimam tuam et ecce sanavi te die tertio ascendes templum Domini
6et addam diebus tuis quindecim annos sed et de manu regis Assyriorum liberabo te et civitatem hanc et protegam urbem istam propter me et propter David servum meum
7dixitque Esaias adferte massam ficorum quam cum adtulissent et posuissent super ulcus eius curatus est
8dixerat autem Ezechias ad Esaiam quod erit signum quia Dominus me sanabit et quia ascensurus sum die tertio templum Domini
9cui ait Esaias hoc erit signum a Domino quod facturus sit Dominus sermonem quem locutus est vis ut accedat umbra decem lineis an ut revertatur totidem gradibus
10et ait Ezechias facile est umbram crescere decem lineis nec hoc volo ut fiat sed ut revertatur retrorsum decem gradibus
11invocavit itaque Esaias propheta Dominum et reduxit umbram per lineas quibus iam descenderat in horologio Ahaz retrorsum decem gradibus
12in tempore illo misit Berodach Baladan filius Baladan rex Babyloniorum litteras et munera ad Ezechiam audierat enim quod aegrotasset Ezechias
13laetatus est autem in adventum eorum Ezechias et ostendit eis domum aromatum et aurum et argentum et pigmenta varia unguenta quoque et domum vasorum suorum et omnia quae habere potuerat in thesauris suis non fuit quod non monstraret eis Ezechias in domo sua et in omni potestate sua
14venit autem Esaias propheta ad regem Ezechiam dixitque ei quid dixerunt viri isti aut unde venerunt ad te cui ait Ezechias de terra longinqua venerunt de Babylone
15at ille respondit quid viderunt in domo tua ait Ezechias omnia quae sunt in domo mea viderunt nihil est quod non monstraverim eis in thesauris meis
16dixit itaque Esaias Ezechiae audi sermonem Domini
17ecce dies venient et auferentur omnia quae sunt in domo tua et quae condiderunt patres tui usque in diem hanc in Babylone non remanebit quicquam ait Dominus
18sed et de filiis tuis qui egredientur ex te quos generabis tollentur et erunt eunuchi in palatio regis Babylonis
19dixit Ezechias ad Esaiam bonus sermo Domini quem locutus est sit pax et veritas in diebus meis
20reliqua autem sermonum Ezechiae et omnis fortitudo eius et quomodo fecerit piscinam et aquaeductum et introduxerit aquas in civitatem nonne haec scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Iuda
21dormivitque Ezechias cum patribus suis et regnavit Manasses filius eius pro eo
