||iustus quidem tu es Domine si disputem tecum verumtamen iusta loquar ad te quare via impiorum prosperatur bene est omnibus qui praevaricantur et inique agunt
Thou indeed, O Lord, art just, if I plead with thee, but yet I will speak what is just to thee: Why doth the way of the wicked prosper: why is it well with all them that transgress, and do wickedly?
||plantasti eos et radicem miserunt proficiunt et faciunt fructum prope es tu ori eorum et longe a renibus eorum
Thou hast planted them, and they have taken root: they prosper and bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins.
||et tu Domine nosti me vidisti me et probasti cor meum tecum congrega eos quasi gregem ad victimam et sanctifica eos in die occisionis
And thou, O Lord, hast known me, thou hast seen me, and proved my heart with thee: gather them together as for the day of slaughter.
||usquequo lugebit terra et herba omnis regionis siccabitur propter malitiam habitantium in ea consumptum est animal et volucre quoniam dixerunt non videbit novissima nostra
How long shall the land mourn, and the herb of every field wither for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? The beasts and the birds are consumed: because they have said: He shall not see our last end.
||si cum peditibus currens laborasti quomodo contendere poteris cum equis cum autem in terra pacis secura fueris quid facies in superbia Iordanis
If thou hast been wearied with running with footmen, how canst thou contend with horses? and if thou hast been secure in a land of peace, what wilt thou do in the swelling of the Jordan?
||nam et fratres tui et domus patris tui etiam ipsi pugnaverunt adversum te et clamaverunt post te plena voce ne credas eis cum locuti fuerint tibi bona
For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have fought against thee, and have cried after thee with full voice: believe them not when they speak good things to thee.
||reliqui domum meam dimisi hereditatem meam dedi dilectam animam meam in manu inimicorum eius
I have forsaken my house, I have left my inheritance: I have given my dear soul into the hand of her enemies.
||facta est mihi hereditas mea quasi leo in silva dedit contra me vocem ideo odivi eam
My inheritance is become to me as a lion in the wood: it hath cried out against me, therefore have I hated it.
||numquid avis discolor hereditas mea mihi numquid avis tincta per totum venite congregamini omnes bestiae terrae properate ad devorandum
Is my inheritance to me as a speckled bird? is it as a bird dyed throughout? come ye, assemble yourselves, all ye beasts of the earth, make haste to devour.
||pastores multi demoliti sunt vineam meam conculcaverunt partem meam dederunt portionem meam desiderabilem in desertum solitudinis
Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot: they have changed my delightful portion into a desolate wilderness.
||posuerunt eam in dissipationem luxitque super me desolatione desolata est omnis terra quia nullus est qui recogitet corde
They have laid it waste, and it hath mourned for me. With desolation is all the land made desolate; because there is none that considereth in the heart.
||super omnes vias deserti venerunt vastatores quia gladius Domini devoravit ab extremo terrae usque ad extremum eius non est pax universae carni
The spoilers are come upon all the ways of the wilderness, for the sword of the Lord shall devour from one end of the land to the other end thereof: there is no peace for all flesh.
||seminaverunt triticum et spinas messuerunt hereditatem acceperunt et non eis proderit confundemini a fructibus vestris propter iram furoris Domini
They have sown wheat, and reaped thorns: they have received an inheritance, and it shall not profit them: you shall be ashamed of your fruits, because of the fierce wrath of the Lord.
||haec dicit Dominus adversum omnes vicinos meos pessimos qui tangunt hereditatem quam distribui populo meo Israhel ecce ego evellam eos de terra eorum et domum Iuda evellam de medio eorum
Thus saith the Lord against all wicked neighbours, that touch the inheritance that I have shared out to my people Israel: Behold I will pluck them out of their land, and I will pluck the house of Juda out of the midst of them.
||et cum evellero eos convertar et miserebor eorum et reducam eos virum ad hereditatem suam et virum in terram suam
And when I shall have plucked them out, I will return, and have mercy on them: and will bring them back, every man to his inheritance, and every man into his land.
||et erit si eruditi didicerint vias populi mei ut iurent in nomine meo vivit Dominus sicut docuerunt populum meum iurare in Baal aedificabuntur in medio populi mei
And it shall come to pass, if they will be taught, and will learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name: The Lord liveth, as they have taught my people to swear by Baal: that they shall be built up in the midst of my people.
||quod si non audierint evellam gentem illam evulsione et perditione ait Dominus
But if they will not hear, I will utterly pluck out and destroy that nation, saith the Lord.
