The Holy Bible - Zechariah, Chapter 9 (Latin)
1The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD.
2And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise.
3And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets.
4Behold, the LORD will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire.
5Ashkelon shall see it, and fear; Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful, and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
6And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
7And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth, even he, shall be for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite.
8And I will encamp about mine house because of the army, because of him that passeth by, and because of him that returneth: and no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now have I seen with mine eyes.
9Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.
11As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
12Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;
13When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man.
14And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the LORD God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.
15The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar.
16And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.
17For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids.
1onus verbi Domini in terra Adrach et Damasci requiei eius quia Domini est oculus hominis et omnium tribuum Israhel
2Emath quoque in terminis eius et Tyrus et Sidon adsumpserunt quippe sibi sapientiam valde
3et aedificavit Tyrus munitionem suam et coacervavit argentum quasi humum et aurum ut lutum platearum
4ecce Dominus possidebit eam et percutiet in mari fortitudinem eius et haec igni devorabitur
5videbit Ascalon et timebit et Gaza et dolebit nimis et Accaron quoniam confusa est spes eius et peribit rex de Gaza et Ascalon non habitabitur
6et sedebit separator in Azoto et disperdam superbiam Philisthinorum
7et auferam sanguinem eius de ore eius et abominationes eius de medio dentium eius et relinquetur etiam ipse Deo nostro et erit quasi dux in Iuda et Accaron quasi Iebuseus
8et circumdabo domum meam ex his qui militant mihi euntes et revertentes et non transibit super eos ultra exactor quia nunc vidi in oculis meis
9exulta satis filia Sion iubila filia Hierusalem ecce rex tuus veniet tibi iustus et salvator ipse pauper et ascendens super asinum et super pullum filium asinae
10et disperdam quadrigam ex Ephraim et equum de Hierusalem et dissipabitur arcus belli et loquetur pacem gentibus et potestas eius a mari usque ad mare et a fluminibus usque ad fines terrae
11tu quoque in sanguine testamenti tui emisisti vinctos tuos de lacu in quo non est aqua
12convertimini ad munitionem vincti spei hodie quoque adnuntians duplicia reddam tibi
13quoniam extendi mihi Iudam quasi arcum implevi Ephraim et suscitabo filios tuos Sion super filios tuos Graecia et ponam te quasi gladium fortium
14et Dominus Deus super eos videbitur et exibit ut fulgur iaculum eius et Dominus Deus in tuba canet et vadet in turbine austri
15Dominus exercituum proteget eos et devorabunt et subicient lapidibus fundae et bibentes inebriabuntur quasi vino et replebuntur ut fialae et quasi cornua altaris
16et salvabit eos Dominus Deus eorum in die illa ut gregem populi sui quia lapides sancti elevantur super terram eius
17quid enim bonum eius est et quid pulchrum eius nisi frumentum electorum et vinum germinans virgines
