1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Et tu, fili hominis, loquere. Haec dicit Dominus Deus terrae Israel: Finis venit, finis super quattuor plagas terrae;
3 nunc finis super te, et immittam furorem meum in te et iudicabo te iuxta vias tuas et ponam super te omnes abominationes tuas.
4 Et non parcet oculus meus super te, et non miserebor, sed vias tuas ponam super te, et abominationes tuae in medio tui erunt, et scietis quia ego Dominus.
5 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Afflictio super afflictionem ecce venit.
6 Finis venit, venit finis; evigilavit adversum te, ecce venit.
7 Venit contractio super te, qui habitas in terra; venit tempus, prope est dies turbationis et non iubilationis in montibus.
8 Nunc de propinquo effundam iram meam super te et complebo furorem meum in te et iudicabo te iuxta vias tuas et imponam tibi omnia scelera tua;
9 et non parcet oculus meus, nec miserebor, sed vias tuas imponam tibi, et abominationes tuae in medio tui erunt, et scietis quia ego sum Dominus percutiens.
10 Ecce dies, ecce venit; egressa est contractio, floruit iniustitia, germinavit superbia;
11 violentia surrexit, ut esset virga impietatis: non ex eis et non ex pompa eorum neque ex sonitu eorum; et non erit requies in eis.
12 Venit tempus, appropinquavit dies: qui emit, non laetetur; et, qui vendit, non lugeat, quia ira super omnem pompam eius.
13 Quia, qui vendit, ad id quod vendidit non revertetur, cum adhuc sit in viventibus vita eorum. Visio enim ad omnem pompam eius non regredietur, et unusquisque in iniquitate sua vitam suam non confortabit.
14 Canite tuba, praeparentur omnia, sed non est qui vadat ad proelium; ira enim mea super universam pompam eius.
15 Gladius foris, pestis et fames intrinsecus. Qui in agro est, gladio morietur; et, qui in civitate, fame et pestilentia devorabuntur.
16 Et salvabuntur, qui fugerint ex eis, et erunt in montibus quasi columbae convallium omnes gementes, unusquisque in iniquitate sua.
17 Omnes manus dissolventur, et omnia genua fluent aquis.
18 Et accingent se ciliciis, et operiet eos formido; et in omni facie confusio, et in universis capitibus eorum calvitium.
19 Argentum suum foras proicient, et aurum eorum in immunditiam erit; argentum eorum et aurum eorum non valebit liberare eos in die furoris Domini; animam suam non saturabunt, et ventres eorum non implebuntur, quia scandalum iniquitatis eorum factum est,
20 et ornamentum monilium suorum in superbiam posuerunt et imagines abominationum suarum et simulacrorum fecerunt ex eo; propter hoc dedi eis illud in immunditiam.
21 Et dabo illud in manus alienorum ad diripiendum et impiis terrae in praedam, et contaminabunt illud.
22 Et avertam faciem meam ab eis, et violabunt thesaurum meum absconditum; et introibunt in illud praedones et contaminabunt illud
23 et facient ex illo catenas; quoniam terra plena est iudicio sanguinum, et civitas plena iniquitate.
24 Et adducam pessimos de gentibus, et possidebunt domos eorum; et quiescere faciam superbiam potentium, et possidebunt sanctuaria eorum.
25 Angustia superveniente, requirent pacem, et non erit.
26 Calamitas super calamitatem veniet, et auditus super auditum; et quaerent visionem de propheta, et lex peribit a sacerdote, et consilium a senioribus.
27 Rex lugebit, et princeps induetur horrore, et manus populi terrae conturbabuntur. Secundum viam eorum faciam eis et secundum iudicia eorum iudicabo eos, et scient quia ego Dominus".
King James Version
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.
3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.
4 And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.
6 An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come.
7 The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.
8 Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.
9 And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.
10 Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of their's: neither shall there be wailing for them.
12 The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
13 For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof, which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
14 They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
15 The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.
16 ¶ But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.
17 All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.
18 They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
20 ¶ As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty: but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it far from them.
21 And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
22 My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.
23 ¶ Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.
25 Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
26 Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.
27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
