1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, duae mulieres filiae matris unius fuerunt
3 et fornicatae sunt in Aegypto, in adulescentia sua fornicatae sunt; ibi subacta sunt ubera earum, et tactae sunt mammae virginitatis earum.
4 Nomina autem earum Oolla maior et Ooliba soror eius; et habui eas, et pepererunt filios et filias: porro earum nomina Samaria Oolla et Ierusalem Ooliba.
5 Fornicata est igitur Oolla discedens a me; et insanivit in amatores suos, in Assyrios: bellatores
6 vestitos hyacintho, principes et magistratus, iuvenes desiderabiles universi, equites ascensores equorum.
7 Et dedit fornicationes suas ad eos electos filiorum Assyriae universos; et apud omnes, in quos insanivit, in omnibus idolis eorum polluta est.
8 Insuper et fornicationes suas, quas habuerat in Aegypto, non reliquit; nam et illi dormierunt cum ea in adulescentia eius, et illi tetigerant ubera virginitatis eius et effuderant fornicationem suam super eam.
9 Propterea tradidi eam in manus amatorum suorum, in manus filiorum Assyriae, in quos insanivit;
10 ipsi discooperuerunt ignominiam eius, filios et filias illius tulerunt et ipsam occiderunt gladio; et facta est famosa mulieribus, et iudicia perpetrarunt in ea.
11 Quod cum vidisset soror eius Ooliba, plus quam illa insanivit libidine et fornicatione sua super fornicationem sororis suae.
12 In filios Assyriorum amore exarsit: duces et magistratus, bellatores indutos veste pretiosa, equites, qui vectabantur equis, adulescentes cuncti desiderabiles.
13 Et vidi quod polluta esset: via una ambarum;
14 et auxit fornicationes suas. Cumque vidisset viros depictos in pariete, imagines Chaldaeorum expressas sinopide,
15 et accinctos balteis renes, et tiaras defluentes in capitibus eorum; aspectus essedariorum omnibus, similitudo filiorum Babylonis, quorum patria Chaldaea.
16 Et insanivit super eos concupiscentia oculorum suorum et misit nuntios ad eos in Chaldaeam.
17 Cumque venissent ad eam filii Babylonis ad cubile amoris, polluerunt eam stupris suis; et, cum polluta esset ab eis, recessit anima eius ab illis.
18 Cum manifestasset fornicationes suas et discooperuisset ignominiam suam, recessit anima mea ab ea, sicut recesserat anima mea a sorore eius.
19 Multiplicavit autem fornicationes suas, recordans dies adulescentiae suae, quibus fornicata est in terra Aegypti;
20 et insanivit libidine in amatores suos, quorum membra sunt ut membra asinorum, et sicut fluxus equorum fluxus eorum.
21 Et desiderasti scelus adulescentiae tuae, quando subacta sunt in Aegypto ubera tua, et tactae mammae pubertatis tuae.
22 Propterea, Ooliba, haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego suscitabo amatores tuos contra te, de quibus recessit anima tua; et congregabo eos adversum te in circuitu,
23 filios Babylonis et universos Chaldaeos, Phacud et Sue et Cue, omnes filios Assyriorum cum eis, iuvenes desiderabiles, duces et magistratus universos, essedarios et nominatos, ascensores equorum omnes.
24 Et venient super te instructi curru et rota, cum multitudine populorum; scuto et clipeo et galea armabuntur contra te undique, et dabo coram eis iudicium, et iudicabunt te iudiciis suis.
25 Et ponam zelum meum in te, quem exercent tecum in furore: nasum tuum et aures tuas praecident et, quae remanserint de te, gladio concident; ipsi filios tuos et filias tuas capient, et novissimum tuum devorabitur igni.
26 Et denudabunt te vestimentis tuis et tollent vasa gloriae tuae;
27 et cessare faciam scelus tuum de te et fornicationem tuam de terra Aegypti, nec levabis oculos tuos ad eos et Aegypti non recordaberis amplius.
28 Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego tradam te in manu eorum, quos odisti, in manu, de quibus recessit anima tua;
29 et agent tecum in odio et tollent omnes labores tuos et dimittent te nudam et ignominia plenam, et revelabitur ignominia fornicationum tuarum, scelus tuum et fornicationes tuae.
30 Fecerunt haec tibi, quia fornicata es post gentes, inter quas polluta es in idolis earum.
31 In via sororis tuae ambulasti, et dabo calicem eius in manu tua.
32 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Calicem sororis tuae bibes profundum et latum C eris in derisum et in subsannationem C: est capacissimus.
33 Ebrietate et dolore repleberis, calice stuporis et horroris, calice sororis tuae Samariae,
34 et bibes illum et epotabis usque ad faeces; et fragmenta eius rodes et ubera tua lacerabis, quia ego locutus sum", ait Dominus Deus.
35 Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus: "Quia oblita es mei et proiecisti me post tergum tuum, tu quoque porta scelus tuum et fornicationes tuas".
36 Et ait Dominus ad me: "Fili hominis, numquid iudicas Oollam et Oolibam? Annuntia ergo eis scelera earum.
37 Quia adulteratae sunt, et sanguis in manibus earum, et cum idolis suis fornicatae sunt; insuper et filios suos, quos genuerunt mihi, obtulerunt eis ad devorandum.
38 Sed et hoc fecerunt mihi: polluerunt sanctuarium meum in die illa et sabbata mea profanaverunt.
39 Cumque immolarent filios suos idolis suis et ingrederentur sanctuarium meum in die illa, ut polluerent illud, ecce haec fecerunt in medio domus meae.
40 Quin et miserunt ad viros venientes de longe, ad quos nuntius missus erat; itaque ecce venerunt. Quibus te lavisti et circumlevisti stibio oculos tuos et ornata es mundo muliebri;
41 sedisti in lecto pulcherrimo, et mensa ornata est ante te, thymiama meum et unguentum meum posuisti super eam.
42 Et vox multitudinis exsultantis erat apud eam et apud viros multitudo hominum, qui adducebantur de deserto; et posuerunt armillas in manibus earum et coronas speciosas in capitibus earum.
43 Et dixi de ea, quae attrita est in adulteriis: Nunc fornicabitur in fornicatione sua etiam haec.
44 Et ingressi sunt ad eam quasi ad mulierem meretricem; sic ingrediebantur ad Oollam et ad Oolibam, mulieres nefarias.
45 Viri ergo iusti sunt; hi iudicabunt eas iudicio adulterarum et iudicio effundentium sanguinem, quia adulterae sunt, et sanguis in manibus earum".
46 Haec enim dicit Dominus Deus: "Adduc ad eas congregationem et trade eas in terrorem et in rapinam;
47 et lapidentur lapidibus congregationis et confodiantur gladiis eorum; filios et filias earum interficiant et domos earum igne succendant.
48 Et auferam scelus de terra, et discent omnes mulieres, ne faciant secundum scelus vestrum;
49 et dabunt scelus vestrum super vos, et peccata idolorum vestrorum portabitis et scietis quia ego Dominus Deus".
King James Version
1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:
3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.
4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.
5 And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,
6 Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.
7 Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their idols she defiled herself.
8 Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her.
9 Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.
10 These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women; for they had executed judgment upon her.
11 And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms.
12 She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men.
13 Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,
14 And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion,
15 Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity:
16 And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.
17 And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and her mind was alienated from them.
18 So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister.
19 Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.
20 For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.
21 Thus thou calledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth.
22 ¶ Therefore, O Aholibah, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will raise up thy lovers against thee, from whom thy mind is alienated, and I will bring them against thee on every side;
23 The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa, and all the Assyrians with them: all of them desirable young men, captains and rulers, great lords and renowned, all of them riding upon horses.
24 And they shall come against thee with chariots, wagons, and wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set against thee buckler and shield and helmet round about: and I will set judgment before them, and they shall judge thee according to their judgments.
25 And I will set my jealousy against thee, and they shall deal furiously with thee: they shall take away thy nose and thine ears; and thy remnant shall fall by the sword: they shall take thy sons and thy daughters; and thy residue shall be devoured by the fire.
26 They shall also strip thee out of thy clothes, and take away thy fair jewels.
27 Thus will I make thy lewdness to cease from thee, and thy whoredom brought from the land of Egypt: so that thou shalt not lift up thine eyes unto them, nor remember Egypt any more.
28 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will deliver thee into the hand of them whom thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated:
29 And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.
30 I will do these things unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring after the heathen, and because thou art polluted with their idols.
31 Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister; therefore will I give her cup into thine hand.
32 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou shalt drink of thy sister's cup deep and large: thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision; it containeth much.
33 Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup of astonishment and desolation, with the cup of thy sister Samaria.
34 Thou shalt even drink it and suck it out, and thou shalt break the sherds thereof, and pluck off thine own breasts: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
35 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast forgotten me, and cast me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.
36 ¶ The LORD said moreover unto me; Son of man, wilt thou judge Aholah and Aholibah? yea, declare unto them their abominations;
37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them.
38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths.
39 For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house.
40 And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments,
41 And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.
42 And a voice of a multitude being at ease was with her: and with the men of the common sort were brought Sabeans from the wilderness, which put bracelets upon their hands, and beautiful crowns upon their heads.
43 Then said I unto her that was old in adulteries, Will they now commit whoredoms with her, and she with them?
44 Yet they went in unto her, as they go in unto a woman that playeth the harlot: so went they in unto Aholah and unto Aholibah, the lewd women.
45 ¶ And the righteous men, they shall judge them after the manner of adulteresses, and after the manner of women that shed blood; because they are adulteresses, and blood is in their hands.
46 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will bring up a company upon them, and will give them to be removed and spoiled.
47 And the company shall stone them with stones, and dispatch them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and burn up their houses with fire.
48 Thus will I cause lewdness to cease out of the land, that all women may be taught not to do after your lewdness.
49 And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
