||et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
||fili hominis vaticinare ad prophetas Israhel qui prophetant et dices prophetantibus de corde suo audite verbum Domini
Son of man, prophesy thou against the prophets of Israel that prophesy: and thou shalt say to them that prophesy out of their own heart: Hear ye the word of the Lord:
||haec dicit Dominus Deus vae prophetis insipientibus qui sequuntur spiritum suum et nihil vident
Thus saith the Lord God: Woe to the foolish prophets that follow their own spirit, and see nothing.
||quasi vulpes in desertis prophetae tui Israhel erant
Thy prophets, O Israel, were like foxes in the deserts.
||non ascendistis ex adverso neque opposuistis murum pro domo Israhel ut staretis in proelio in die Domini
You have not gone up to face the enemy, nor have you set up a wall for the house of Israel, to stand in battle in the day of the Lord.
||vident vana et divinant mendacium dicentes ait Dominus cum Dominus non miserit eos et perseveraverunt confirmare sermonem
They see vain things, and they foretell lies, saying: The Lord saith: whereas the Lord hath not sent them: and they have persisted to confirm what they have said.
||numquid non visionem cassam vidistis et divinationem mendacem locuti estis et dicitis ait Dominus cum ego non sim locutus
Have you not seen a vain vision and spoken a lying divination: and you say: The Lord saith: whereas I have not spoken.
||propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus quia locuti estis vana et vidistis mendacium ideo ecce ego ad vos ait Dominus Deus
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Because you have spoken vain things, and have seen lies: therefore behold I come against you, saith the Lord God.
||et erit manus mea super prophetas qui vident vana et divinant mendacium in concilio populi mei non erunt et in scriptura domus Israhel non scribentur nec in terra Israhel ingredientur et scietis quia ego Dominus Deus
And my hand shall be upon the prophets that see vain things, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the council of my people, nor shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel, and you shall know that I am the Lord God.
||eo quod deceperint populum meum dicentes pax et non est pax et ipse aedificabat parietem illi autem liniebant eum luto absque paleis
Because they have deceived my people, saying: Peace, and there is no peace: and the people built up a wall, and they daubed it with dirt without straw.
||dic ad eos qui liniunt absque temperatura quod casurus sit erit enim imber inundans et dabo lapides praegrandes desuper inruentes et ventum procellae dissipantem
Say to them that daub without tempering, that it shall fall: for there shall be an overflowing shower, and I will cause great hailstones to fall violently from above, and a stormy wind to throw it down.
||siquidem ecce cecidit paries numquid non dicetur vobis ubi est litura quam levistis
Behold, when the wall is fallen: shall it not be said to you: Where is the daubing wherewith you have daubed it?
||propterea haec dicit Dominus Deus et erumpere faciam spiritum tempestatum in indignatione mea et imber inundans in furore meo erit et lapides grandes in ira in consummationem
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Lo, I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in my indignation, and there shall be an overflowing shower in my anger: and great hailstones in my wrath to consume.
||et destruam parietem quem levistis absque temperamento et adaequabo eum terrae et revelabitur fundamentum eius et cadet et consumetur in medio eius et scietis quia ego sum Dominus
And I will break down the wall that you have daubed with untempered mortar: and I will make it even with the ground, and the foundation thereof shall be laid bare: and it shall fall, and shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and you shall know that I am the Lord.
||et conplebo indignationem meam in parietem et in his qui linunt eum absque temperamento dicamque vobis non est paries et non sunt qui linunt eum
And I will accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that daub it without tempering the mortar, and I will say to you: The wall is no more, and they that daub it are no more.
||prophetae Israhel qui prophetant ad Hierusalem et vident ei visionem pacis et non est pax ait Dominus Deus
Even the prophets of Israel that prophesy to Jerusalem, and that see visions of peace for her: and there is no peace, saith the Lord God.
||et tu fili hominis pone faciem tuam contra filias populi tui quae prophetant de corde suo et vaticinare super eas
And thou, son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people that prophesy out of their own heart: and do thou prophesy against them,
||et dic haec ait Dominus Deus vae quae consuunt pulvillos sub omni cubito manus et faciunt cervicalia sub capite universae aetatis ad capiendas animas cum caperent animas populi mei vivificabant animas eorum
And say: Thus saith the Lord God: Woe to them that sew cushions under every elbow: and make pillows for the heads of persons of every age to catch souls: and when they caught the souls of my people, they gave life to their souls.
||et violabant me ad populum meum propter pugillum hordei et fragmen panis ut interficerent animas quae non moriuntur et vivificarent animas quae non vivunt mentientes populo meo credenti mendaciis
And they violated me among my people, for a handful of barley, and a piece of bread, to kill souls which should not die, and to save souls alive which should not live, telling lies to my people that believe lies.
||propter hoc haec dicit Dominus Deus ecce ego ad pulvillos vestros quibus vos capitis animas volantes et disrumpam eos de brachiis vestris et dimittam animas quas vos capitis animas ad volandum
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold I declare against your cushions, wherewith you catch flying souls: and I will tear them off from your arms: and I will let go the soul that you catch, the souls that should fly.
||et disrumpam cervicalia vestra et liberabo populum meum de manu vestra neque erunt ultra in manibus vestris ad praedandum et scietis quia ego Dominus
And I will tear your pillows, and will deliver my people out of your hand, neither shall they be any more in your hands to be a prey: and you shall know that I am the Lord.
||pro eo quod maerere fecistis cor iusti mendaciter quem ego non contristavi et confortastis manus impii ut non reverteretur a via sua mala et viveret
Because with lies you have made the heart of the just to mourn, whom I have not made sorrowful: and have strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his evil way, and live.
||propterea vana non videbitis et divinationes non divinabitis amplius et eruam populum meum de manu vestra et scietis quoniam ego Dominus
Therefore you shall not see vain things, nor divine divinations any more, and I will deliver my people out of your hand: and you shall know that I am the Lord.
