The evils that shall fall upon Israel for their sins.

[1] Hear the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning you, O ye children of Israel: concerning the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt, saying:
Audite verbum quod locutus est Dominus super vos, filii Israel, super omnem cognationem quam eduxi de terra Aegypti, dicens :

[2] You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore will I visit upon you all your iniquities.
Tantummodo vos cognovi ex omnibus cognationibus terrae; idcirco visitabo super vos omnes iniquitates vestras.

[3] Shall two walk together except they be agreed?
Numquid ambulabunt duo pariter, nisi convenerit eis?

[4] Will a lion roar in the forest, if he have no prey? will the lion's whelp cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?
numquid rugiet leo in saltu, nisi habuerit praedam? numquid dabit catulus leonis vocem de cubili suo, nisi aliquid apprehenderit?

[5] Will the bird fall into the snare upon the earth, if there be no fowler? Shall the snare be taken up from the earth, before it hath taken somewhat?
numquid cadet avis in laqueum terrae absque aucupe? numquid auferetur laqueus de terra antequam quid ceperit?

[6] Shall the trumpet sound in a city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, which the Lord hath not done?
si clanget tuba in civitate, et populus non expavescet? si erit malum in civitate, quod Dominus non fecerit?

[7] For the Lord God doth nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.
Quia non facit Dominus Deus verbum, nisi revelaverit secretum suum ad servos suos prophetas.

[8] The lion shall roar, who will not fear? The Lord God hath spoken, who shall not prophesy?
Leo rugiet, quis non timebit? Dominus Deus locutus est, quis non prophetabit?

[9] Publish it in the houses of Azotus, and in the houses of the land of Egypt, and say: Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold the many follies in the midst thereof, and them that suffer oppression in the inner rooms thereof.
Auditum facite in aedibus Azoti, et in aedibus terrae Aegypti, et dicite : Congregamini super montes Samariae, et videte insanias multas in medio ejus, et calumniam patientes in penetralibus ejus.

[10] And they have not known to do the right thing, saith the Lord, storing up iniquity, and robberies in their houses.
Et nescierunt facere rectum, dicit Dominus, thesaurizantes iniquitatem et rapinas in aedibus suis.

[11] Therefore thus saith the Lord God: The land shall be in tribulation, and shall be compassed about: and thy strength shall be taken away from thee, and thy houses shall be spoiled.
Propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus : Tribulabitur et circuietur terra : et detrahetur ex te fortitudo tua, et diripientur aedes tuae.

[12] Thus saith the Lord: As if a shepherd should get out of the lion's mouth two legs, or the tip of the ear: so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria, in a piece of a bed, and in the couch of Damascus.
Haec dicit Dominus : Quomodo si eruat pastor de ore leonis duo crura, aut extremum auriculae, sic eruentur filii Israel, qui habitant in Samaria in plaga lectuli, et in Damasci grabato.

[13] Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob, saith the Lord the God of hosts:
Audite, et contestamini in domo Jacob, dicit Dominus Deus exercituum;

[14] That in the day when I shall begin to visit the transgressions of Israel, I will visit upon him, and upon the altars of Bethel: and the horns of the altars shall be cut off, and shall fall to the ground.
quia in die cum visitare coepero praevaricationes Israel, super eum visitabo, et super altaria Bethel; et amputabuntur cornua altaris, et cadent in terram.

[15] And I will strike the winter house with the summer house: and the houses of ivory shall perish, and many houses shall be destroyed, saith the Lord.
Et percutiam domum hiemalem cum domo aestiva, et peribunt domus eburneae, et dissipabuntur aedes multae, dicit Dominus.
