||super custodiam meam stabo et figam gradum super munitionem et contemplabor ut videam quid dicatur mihi et quid respondeam ad arguentem me
I will stand upon my watch, and fix my foot upon the tower: and I will watch, to see what will be said to me, and what I may answer to him that reproveth me.
||et respondit mihi Dominus et dixit scribe visum et explana eum super tabulas ut percurrat qui legerit eum
And the Lord answered me, and said: Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables: that he that readeth it may run over it.
||quia adhuc visus procul et apparebit in finem et non mentietur si moram fecerit expecta illum quia veniens veniet et non tardabit
For as yet the vision is far off, and it shall appear at the end, and shall notlie: if it make any delay, wait for it: for it shall surely come, and it shall not be slack.

||numquid non omnes isti super eum parabolam sument et loquellam enigmatum eius et dicetur vae ei qui multiplicat non sua usquequo et adgravat contra se densum lutum

||numquid non repente consurgent qui mordeant te et suscitabuntur lacerantes te et eris in rapinam eis
Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee: and they be stirred up that shall tear thee, and thou shalt be a spoil to them?
||quia tu spoliasti gentes multas spoliabunt te omnes qui reliqui fuerint de populis propter sanguinem hominis et iniquitatem terrae civitatis et omnium habitantium in ea
Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all that shall be left of the people shall spoil thee: because of men's blood, and for the iniquity of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.
||vae qui congregat avaritiam malam domui suae ut sit in excelso nidus eius et liberari se putat de manu mali
Woe to him that gathereth together an evil covetousness to his house, that his nest may be on high, and thinketh he may be delivered out of the hand of evil.

Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and prepareth a city by iniquity.
||numquid non haec a Domino sunt exercituum laborabunt enim populi in multo igni et gentes in vacuum et deficient
Are not these things from the Lord of hosts? for the people shall labour in a great fire: and the nations in vain, and they shall faint.
||quia replebitur terra ut cognoscat gloriam Domini quasi aquae operientes mare
For the earth shall be filled, that men may know the glory of the Lord, as waters covering the sea.
||vae qui potum dat amico suo mittens fel suum et inebrians ut aspiciat nuditatem eius
Woe to him that giveth drink to his friend, and presenteth his gall, and maketh him drunk, that he may behold his nakedness.
||repletus est ignominia pro gloria bibe tu quoque et consopire circumdabit te calix dexterae Domini et vomitus ignominiae super gloriam tuam
Thou art filled with shame instead of glory: drink thou also, and fall fast asleep: the cup of the right hand of the Lord shall compass thee, and shameful vomiting shall be on thy glory.
||quia iniquitas Libani operiet te et vastitas animalium deterrebit eos de sanguinibus hominis et iniquitate terrae et civitatis et omnium habitantium in ea

||quid prodest sculptile quia sculpsit illud fictor suus conflatile et imaginem falsam quia speravit in figmento fictor eius ut faceret simulacra muta
What doth the graven thing avail, because the maker thereof hath graven it, a molten, and a false image? because the forger thereof hath trusted in a thing of his own forging, to make dumb idols.
||vae qui dicit ligno expergiscere surge lapidi tacenti numquid ipse docere poterit ecce iste coopertus est auro et argento et omnis spiritus non est in visceribus eius
