The book of Joshua, chapter 22, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 22

Vulgate


   1 Tunc vocavit Iosue Rubenitas et Gaditas et dimidiam tribum Manasse
   2 dixitque ad eos: "Fecistis omnia, quae vobis praecepit Moyses famulus Domini; mihi quoque in omnibus, quae praecepi vobis, oboedistis
   3 nec reliquistis fratres vestros hoc longo tempore usque in praesentem diem custodientes imperium Domini Dei vestri.
   4 Quia igitur dedit Dominus Deus vester fratribus vestris quietem ac pacem, sicut eis pollicitus est, revertimini nunc et ite in tabernacula vestra et in terram possessionis, quam tradidit vobis Moyses famulus Domini trans Iordanem;
   5 ita dumtaxat ut custodiatis attente et opere compleatis mandatum et legem, quam praecepit vobis Moyses servus Domini, ut diligatis Dominum Deum vestrum et ambuletis in omnibus viis eius et observetis mandata illius adhaereatisque ei ac serviatis in omni corde et in omni anima vestra"
   6 Benedixitque eis Iosue et dimisit eos, qui reversi sunt in tabernacula sua.
   7 Dimidiae autem tribui Manasse possessionem Moyses dederat in Basan; et idcirco mediae, quae superfuit, dedit Iosue sortem inter ceteros fratres suos trans Iordanem ad occidentalem eius plagam. Cumque dimitteret eos in tabernacula sua et benedixisset illis,
   8 dixit ad eos: "Cum multis divitiis revertimini ad sedes vestras, cum argento et auro, aere ac ferro et veste multiplici; dividite praedam hostium cum fratribus vestris"
   9 Reversique sunt et abierunt filii Ruben et filii Gad et dimidia tribus Manasse a filiis Israel de Silo, quae sita est in Chanaan, ut intrarent Galaad terram possessionis suae, quam obtinuerant iuxta imperium Domini in manu Moysi.
   10 Cumque venissent ad circulos Iordanis in terra Chanaan, aedificaverunt iuxta Iordanem altare ingens aspectu.
   11 Cum audissent filii Israel aedificasse filios Ruben et Gad et dimidiam tribum Manasse altare e regione terrae Chanaan ad Iordanis circulos ex adverso filiorum Israel,
   12 convenerunt omnes in Silo, ut ascenderent et dimicarent contra eos.
   13 Et interim miserunt ad illos in terram Galaad Phinees filium Eleazari sacerdotem
   14 et decem principes cum eo, singulos de tribubus, unusquisque erat caput familiae in cognationibus Israel.
   15 Qui venerunt ad filios Ruben et Gad et dimidiam tribum Manasse in terram Galaad dixeruntque ad eos:
   16 "Haec mandat omnis coetus Domini: Quae est ista transgressio? Cur reliquistis Dominum, Deum Israel, aedificantes vobis altare sacrilegum et a cultu illius recedentes?
   17 An parum vobis est peccatum Phegor, et usque in praesentem diem macula huius sceleris in nobis permanet, et facta est plaga in coetu Domini?
   18 Et vos hodie reliquistis Dominum, et factum est ut rebellaretis contra Dominum; et cras in universum coetum Israel eius ira desaeviet.
   19 Quod si putatis immundam esse terram possessionis vestrae, transite ad terram possessionis Domini, in qua habitaculum Domini est, et habitate inter nos; tantum ut contra Dominum non rebelletis nec nos rebellare faciatis aedificantes altare praeter altare Domini Dei nostri.
   20 Nonne Achan filius Zarae praeteriit mandatum Domini de anathemate, et super omnem coetum Israel ira Domini incubuit? Et ille erat unus homo; atque utinam solus perisset in scelere suo!"
   21 Responderuntque filii Ruben et Gad et dimidia tribus Manasse principibus legationis Israel:
   22 "Fortissimus Deus Dominus, fortissimus Deus Dominus ipse novit, et Israel simul intelleget: si rebellionis, si praevaricationis animo contra Dominum hoc altare construximus, non salvet nos, sed puniat in praesenti;
   23 et si ea mente fecimus, ut recedamus a Domino et holocausta et oblationes et pacificas victimas super eo imponeremus, Dominus ipse quaerat et iudicet;
   24 et si non ea magis sollicitudine et cogitatione fecimus hoc dicentes: Cras dicent filii vestri filiis nostris: "Quid vobis et Domino, Deo Israel?
   25 Terminum posuit Dominus inter nos et vos, o filii Ruben et filii Gad, Iordanem fluvium, et idcirco partem non habetis in Domino" et per hanc occasionem avertent filii vestri filios nostros a timore Domini. Putavimus itaque melius
   26 et diximus: Exstruamus nobis altare non in holocausta neque ad victimas offerendas,
   27 sed in testimonium inter nos et vos et sobolem nostram vestramque progeniem, ut serviamus Domino, et iuris nostri sit offerre holocausta et victimas et pacificas hostias, et nequaquam dicant cras filii vestri filiis nostris: "Non est vobis pars in Domino"
   28 Quod si voluerint dicere, respondebunt eis: "Ecce similitudo altaris Domini, quam fecerunt patres nostri non in holocausta neque in sacrificia, sed in testimonium inter nos et vos"
   29 Absit a nobis hoc scelus, ut recedamus a Domino et eius vestigia relinquamus, exstructo altari ad holocausta et oblationes et victimas offerendas, praeter altare Domini Dei nostri, quod est ante habitaculum eius"
   30 Quibus auditis, Phinees sacerdos et principes legationis Israel, qui erant cum eo, placati sunt et verba filiorum Ruben et Gad et dimidiae tribus Manasse libentissime susceperunt;
   31 dixitque Phinees filius Eleazar sacerdos ad eos: "Nunc scimus quod nobiscum sit Dominus, quoniam alieni estis a praevaricatione hac et liberastis filios Israel de manu Domini"
   32 Reversusque est cum principibus a filiis Ruben et Gad de terra Galaad in terram Chanaan ad filios Israel et rettulit eis.
   33 Placuitque sermo cunctis audientibus, et laudaverunt Deum filii Israel; et nequaquam ultra dixerunt, ut ascenderent contra eos in bellum et delerent terram, in qua habitabant filii Ruben et Gad.
   34 Vocaveruntque filii Ruben et filii Gad altare, quod exstruxerant, Testem; dixerunt enim: "Testis est inter nos quod Dominus ipse sit Deus"

King James Version


   1 Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh,
   2 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you:
   3 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.
   4 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren, as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan.
   5 But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
   6 So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away: and they went unto their tents.
   7 ¶ Now to the one half of the tribe of Manasseh Moses had given possession in Bashan: but unto the other half thereof gave Joshua among their brethren on this side Jordan westward. And when Joshua sent them away also unto their tents, then he blessed them,
   8 And he spake unto them, saying, Return with much riches unto your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver, and with gold, and with brass, and with iron, and with very much raiment: divide the spoil of your enemies with your brethren.
   9 ¶ And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the children of Israel out of Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan, to go unto the country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, whereof they were possessed, according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
   10 ¶ And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that are in the land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar to see to.
   11 ¶ And the children of Israel heard say, Behold, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh have built an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the borders of Jordan, at the passage of the children of Israel.
   12 And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at Shiloh, to go up to war against them.
   13 And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, into the land of Gilead, Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest,
   14 And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince throughout all the tribes of Israel; and each one was an head of the house of their fathers among the thousands of Israel.
   15 ¶ And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of Gilead, and they spake with them, saying,
   16 Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?
   17 Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,
   18 But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD? and it will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow he will be wroth with the whole congregation of Israel.
   19 Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession be unclean, then pass ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD, wherein the LORD'S tabernacle dwelleth, and take possession among us: but rebel not against the LORD, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the LORD our God.
   20 Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity.
   21 ¶ Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh answered, and said unto the heads of the thousands of Israel,
   22 The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and Israel he shall know; if it be in rebellion, or if in transgression against the LORD, (save us not this day,)
   23 That we have built us an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering, or if to offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself require it;
   24 And if we have not rather done it for fear of this thing, saying, In time to come your children might speak unto our children, saying, What have ye to do with the LORD God of Israel?
   25 For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD.
   26 Therefore we said, Let us now prepare to build us an altar, not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:
   27 But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.
   28 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say again, Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between us and you.
   29 God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn this day from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for meat offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the altar of the LORD our God that is before his tabernacle.
   30 ¶ And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the congregation and heads of the thousands of Israel which were with him, heard the words that the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh spake, it pleased them.
   31 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the children of Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD is among us, because ye have not committed this trespass against the LORD: now ye have delivered the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD.
   32 ¶ And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes, returned from the children of Reuben, and from the children of Gad, out of the land of Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to the children of Israel, and brought them word again.
   33 And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the children of Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against them in battle, to destroy the land wherein the children of Reuben and Gad dwelt.
   34 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.
