The judgments of God upon all the sinners of the world. A remnant shall joyfully praise him.
1 Behold the Lord shall lay waste the earth, and shall strip it, and shall afflict the face thereof, and scatter abroad the inhabitants thereof.
Ecce Dominus dissipabit terram : et nudabit eam, et affliget faciem ejus, et disperget habitatores ejus.
2 And it shall be as with the people, so with the priest: and as with the servant, so with his master: as with the handmaid, so with her mistress: as with the buyer, so with the seller: as with the lender, so with the borrower: as with him that calleth for his money, so with him that oweth.
Et erit sicut populus, sic sacerdos; et sicut servus, sic dominus ejus; sicut ancilla, sic domina ejus; sicut emens, sic ille qui vendit; sicut foenerator, sic is qui mutuum accipit; sicut qui repetit, sic qui debet.
3 With desolation shall the earth be laid waste, and it shall be utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.
Dissipatione dissipabitur terra, et direptione praedabitur; Dominus enim locutus est verbum hoc.
4 The earth mourned, and faded away, and is weakened: the world faded away, the height of the people of the earth is weakened.
Luxit, et defluxit terra, et infirmata est; defluxit orbis, infirmata est altitudo populi terrae.
5 And the earth is infected by the inhabitants thereof: because they have transgressed the laws, they have changed the ordinance, they have broken the everlasting covenant.
Et terra infecta est ab habitatoribus suis, quia transgressi sunt leges, mutaverunt jus, dissipaverunt foedus sempiternum.
6 Therefore shall a curse devour the earth, and the inhabitants thereof shall sin: and therefore they that dwell therein shall be mad, and few men shall be left.
Propter hoc maledictio vorabit terram, et peccabunt habitatores ejus; ideoque insanient cultores ejus, et relinquentur homines pauci.
7 The vintage hath mourned, the vine hath languished away, all the merryhearted have sighed.
Luxit vindemia, infirmata est vitis, ingemuerunt omnes qui laetabantur corde;
8 The mirth of timbrels hath ceased, the noise of them that rejoice is ended, the melody of the harp is silent.
cessavit gaudium tympanorum, quievit sonitus laetantium, conticuit dulcedo citharae.
9 They shall not drink wine with a song: the drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.
Cum cantico non bibent vinum; amara erit potio bibentibus illam.
10 The city of vanity is broken down, every house is shut up, no man cometh in.
Attrita est civitas vanitatis, clausa est omnis domus, nullo introeunte.
11 There shall be a crying for wine in the streets: all mirth is forsaken: the joy of the earth is gone away.
Clamor erit super vino in plateis, deserta est omnia laetitia, translatum est gaudium terrae.
12 Desolation is left in the city, and calamity shall oppress the gates.
Relicta est in urbe solitudo, et calamitas opprimet portas.
13 For it shall be thus in the midst of the earth, in the midst of the people, as if a few olives, that remain, should be shaken out of the olive tree: or grapes, when the vintage is ended.
Quia haec erunt in medio terrae in medio populorum, quomodo si paucae olivae quae remanserunt excutiantur ex olea et racemi, cum fuerit finita vindemia.
14 These shall lift up their voice, and shall give praise: when the Lord shall be glorified, they shall make a joyful noise from the sea.
Hi levabunt vocem suam, atque laudabunt : cum glorificatus fuerit Dominus, hinnient de mari.
15 Therefore glorify ye the Lord in instruction: the name of the Lord God of Israel in the islands of the sea.
Propter hoc in doctrinis glorificate Dominum; in insulis maris nomen Domini Dei Israel.
16 From the ends of the earth we have heard praises, the glory of the just one. And I said: My secret to myself, my secret to myself, woe is me: the prevaricators have prevaricated, and with the prevarication of transgressors they have prevaricated.
A finibus terrae laudes audivimus, gloriam Justi. Et dixi : Secretum meum mihi, secretum meum mihi. Vae mihi! praevaricantes praevaricati sunt, et praevaricatione transgressorum praevaricati sunt.
17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare are upon thee, O thou inhabitant of the earth.
Formido, et fovea, et laqueus super te, qui habitator es terrae.
18 And it shall come to pass, that he that shall flee from the noise of the fear, shall fall into the pit: and he that shall rid himself out of the pit, shall be taken in the snare: for the flood-gates from on high are opened, and the foundations of the earth shall be shaken.
Et erit : qui fugerit a voce formidinis cadet in foveam; et qui se explicaverit de fovea tenebitur laqueo; quia cataractae de excelsis apertae sunt et concutientur fundamenta terrae.
19 With breaking shall the earth be broken, with crushing shall the earth be crushed, with trembling shall the earth be moved.
Confractione confringetur terra, contritione conteretur terra, commotione commovebitur terra;
20 With shaking shall the earth be shaken as a drunken man, and shall be removed as the tent of one night: and the iniquity thereof shall be heavy upon it, and it shall fall, and not rise again.
agitatione agitabitur terra sicut ebrius, et auferetur quasi tabernaculum unius noctis; et gravabit eam iniquitas sua, et corruet, et non adjiciet ut resurgat.
21 And it shall come to pass, that in that day the Lord shall visit upon the host of heaven on high, and upon the kings of the earth, on the earth.
Et erit : in die illa visitabit Dominus super militiam caeli in excelso, et super reges terrae qui sunt super terram;
22 And they shall be gathered together as in the gathering of one bundle into the pit, and they shall be shut up there in prison: and after many days they shall be visited.
et congregabuntur in congregatione unius fascis in lacum, et claudentur ibi in carcere, et post multos dies visitabuntur.
23 And the moon shall blush, and the sun shall be ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Sion, and in Jerusalem, and shall be glorified in the sight of his ancients.
Et erubescet luna, et confundetur sol, cum regnaverit Dominus exercituum in monte Sion et in Jerusalem et in conspectu senum suorum fuerit glorificatus.
