The general judgment of the wicked.
1 Come near, ye Gentiles, and hear, and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein, the world, and every thing that cometh forth of it.
Accedite, gentes, et audite; et populi, attendite : audiat terra, et plenitudo ejus; orbis, et omne germen ejus.
2 For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath killed them, and delivered them to slaughter.
Quia indignatio Domini super omnes gentes, et furor super universam militiam eorum : interfecit eos, et dedit eos in occisionem.
3 Their slain shall be cast forth, and out of their carcasses shall rise a stink: the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
Interfecti eorum projicientur, et de cadaveribus eorum ascendet foetor; tabescent montes a sanguine eorum.
4 And all the host of the heavens shall pine away, and the heavens shall be folded together as a book: and all their host shall fall down as the leaf falleth from the vine, and from the fig tree.
Et tabescet omnis militia caelorum, et complicabuntur sicut liber caeli : et omnis militia eorum defluet, sicut defluit folium de vinea et de ficu.
5 For my sword is inebriated in heaven: behold it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my slaughter unto judgment.
Quoniam inebriatus est in caelo gladius meus; ecce super Idumaeam descendet, et super populum interfectionis meae, ad judicium.
6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made thick with the blood of lambs and buck goats, with the blood of rams full of marrow: for there is a victim of the Lord in Bosra and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
Gladius Domini repletus est sanguine, incrassatus est adipe, de sanguine agnorum et hircorum, de sanguine medullatorum arietum : victima enim Domini in Bosra, et interfectio magna in terra Edom.
7 And the unicorns shall go down with them, and the bulls with the mighty: their land shall be soaked with blood, and their ground with the fat of fat ones.
Et descendent unicornes cum eis, et tauri cum potentibus; inebriabitur terra eorum sanguine, et humus eorum adipe pinguium.
8 For it is the day of the vengeance of the Lord, the year of recompenses of the judgment of Sion.
Quia dies ultionis Domini, annus retributionum judicii Sion.
9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the ground thereof into brimstone: and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
Et convertentur torrentes ejus in picem, et humus ejus in sulphur; et erit terra ejus in picem ardentem.
10 Night and day it shall not be quenched, the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste, none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
Nocte et die non extinguetur, in sempiternum ascendet fumus ejus, a generatione in generationem desolabitur, in saecula saeculorum non erit transiens per eam.
11 The bittern and ericius shall possess it: and the ibis and the raven shall dwell in it: and a line shall be stretched out upon it, to bring it to nothing, and a plummet, unto desolation.
Et possidebunt illam onocrotalus et ericius; ibis et corvus habitabunt in ea : et extendetur super eam mensura, ut redigatur ad nihilum, et perpendiculum in desolationem.
12 The nobles thereof shall not be there: they shall call rather upon the king, and all the princes thereof shall be nothing.
Nobiles ejus non erunt ibi; regem potius invocabunt, et omnes principes ejus erunt in nihilum.
13 And thorns and nettles shall grow up in its houses, and the thistle in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be the habitation of dragons, and the pasture of ostriches.
Et orientur in domibus ejus spinae et urticae, et paliurus in munitionibus ejus; et erit cubile draconum, et pascua struthionum.
14 And demons and monsters shall meet, and the hairy ones shall cry out one to another, there hath the lamia lain down, and found rest for herself.
Et occurrent daemonia onocentauris, et pilosus clamabit alter ad alterum; ibi cubavit lamia, et invenit sibi requiem.
15 There hath the ericius had its hole, and brought up its young ones, and hath dug round about, and cherished them in the shadow thereof: thither are the kites gathered together one to another.
Ibi habuit foveam ericius, et enutrivit catulos, et circumfodit, et fovit in umbra ejus; illuc congregati sunt milvi, alter ad alterum.
16 Search ye diligently in the book of the Lord, and read: not one of them was wanting, one hath not sought for the other: for that which proceedeth out of my mouth, he hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
Requirite diligenter in libro Domini, et legite : Unum ex eis non defuit, alter alterum non quaesivit; quia quod ex ore meo procedit, ille mandavit, et spiritus ejus ipse congregavit ea.
17 And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it to them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation they shall dwell therein.
Et ipse misit eis sortem, et manus ejus divisit eam illis in mensuram : usque in aeternum possidebunt eam; in generationem et generationem habitabunt in ea.
