 The strong man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the cunning man, and the ancient.
fortem, et virum bellatorem, judicem, et prophetam, et ariolum, et senem;
 The captain over fifty, and the honourable in countenance, and the counsellor, and the architect, and the skillful in eloquent speech.
principem super quinquaginta, et honorabilem vultu et consiliarium, et sapientem de architectis, et prudentem eloquii mystici.
 And I will give children to be their princes, and the effeminate shall rule over them.
Et dabo pueros principes eorum, et effeminati dominabuntur eis;
 And the people shall rush one upon another, and every man against his neighbour: the child shall make it tumult against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

 In that day he shall answer, saying: I am no healer, and in my house there is no bread, nor clothing: make me not ruler of the people.
Respondebit in die illa, dicens : Non sum medicus, et in domo mea non est panis neque vestimentum : nolite constituere me principem populi.

Dicite justo quoniam bene, quoniam fructum adinventionum suarum comedet.
 Woe to the wicked unto evil: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.
Vae impio in malum! retributio enim manuum ejus fiet ei.
 As for my people, their oppressors have stripped them, and women have ruled over them. O my people, they that call thee blessed, the same deceive thee, and destroy the way of thy steps.
Populum meum exactores sui spoliaverunt, et mulieres dominatae sunt eis. Popule meus, qui te beatum dicunt, ipsi te decipiunt, et viam gressuum tuorum dissipant.
 The Lord standeth up to judge, and he standeth to judge the people.
Stat ad judicandum Dominus, et stat ad judicandos populos.

Quare atteritis populum meum, et facies pauperum commolitis? dicit Dominus exercituum.
 And the Lord said: Because the daughters of Sion are haughty, and have walked with stretched out necks, and wanton glances of their eyes, and made a noise as they walked with their feet and moved in a set pace:
Et dixit Dominus : Pro eo quod elevatae sunt filiae Sion, et ambulaverunt extento collo, et nutibus oculorum ibant, et plaudebant, ambulabant pedibus suis, et composito gradu incedebant;
 The Lord will make bald the crown of the head of the daughters of Sion, and the Lord will discover their hair.

 In that day the Lord will take away the ornaments of shoes, and little moons,
In die illa auferet Dominus ornamentum calceamentum,
 And chains and necklaces, and bracelets, and bonnets,
et lunulas, et torques, et monilia, et armillas, et mitras,
 And bodkins, and ornaments of the legs, and tablets, and sweet balls, and earrings,
et discriminalia, et periscelidas, et murenulas, et olfactoriola, et inaures,
 And rings, and jewels hanging on the forehead,
et annulos, et gemmas in fronte pendentes,
 And changes of apparel, and short cloaks, and fine linen, and crisping pins,
et mutatoria, et palliola, et linteamina, et acus,
 And looking-glasses, and lawns, and headbands, and fine veils.
et specula, et sindones, et vittas, et theristra.
 And instead of a sweet smell there shall be stench, and instead of a girdle, a cord, and instead of curled hair, baldness, and instead of a stomacher, haircloth.
