||ascenditque angelus Domini de Galgal ad locum Flentium et ait eduxi vos de Aegypto et introduxi in terram pro qua iuravi patribus vestris et pollicitus sum ut non facerem irritum pactum meum vobiscum in sempiternum
And an angel of the Lord went up from Galgal to the place of weepers, and said: I made you go out of Egypt, and have brought you into the land for which I swore to your fathers: and I promised that I would not make void my covenant with you for ever:
||ita dumtaxat ut non feriretis foedus cum habitatoribus terrae huius et aras eorum subverteretis et noluistis audire vocem meam cur hoc fecistis
On condition that you should not make a league with the inhabitants of this land, but should throw down their altars: and you would not hear my voice: why have you done this?
||quam ob rem nolui delere eos a facie vestra ut habeatis hostes et dii eorum sint vobis in ruinam
Wherefore I would not destroy them from before your face; that you may have enemies, and their gods may be your ruin.
||cumque loqueretur angelus Domini verba haec ad omnes filios Israhel elevaverunt vocem suam et fleverunt
And when the angel of the Lord spoke these words to all the children of Israel: they lifted up their voice, and wept.
||et vocatum est nomen loci illius Flentium sive Lacrimarum immolaveruntque ibi hostias Domino
And the name of that place was called, The place of weepers, or of tears: and there they offered sacrifices to the Lord.
||dimisit ergo Iosue populum et abierunt filii Israhel unusquisque in possessionem suam ut obtinerent eam
And Josue sent away the people, and the children of Israel went every one to his own possession to hold it:
||servieruntque Domino cunctis diebus eius et seniorum qui longo post eum vixerunt tempore et noverant omnia opera Domini quae fecerat cum Israhel
And they served the Lord all his days, and the days of the ancients, that lived a long time after him, and who knew all the works of the Lord, which he had done for Israel.
||mortuus est autem Iosue filius Nun famulus Domini centum et decem annorum
And Josue, the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died, being a hundred and ten years old;
||et sepelierunt eum in finibus possessionis suae in Thamnathsare in monte Ephraim a septentrionali plaga montis Gaas
And they buried him in the borders of his possession in Thamnathsare, in Mount Ephraim, on the north side of Mount Gaas.
||omnisque illa generatio congregata est ad patres suos et surrexerunt alii qui non noverant Dominum et opera quae fecerat cum Israhel
And all that generation was gathered to their fathers: and there arose others that knew not the Lord and the works which he had done for Israel.
||feceruntque filii Israhel malum in conspectu Domini et servierunt Baalim
And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they served Baalim
||ac dimiserunt Dominum Deum patrum suorum qui eduxerat eos de terra Aegypti et secuti sunt deos alienos deos quoque populorum qui habitabant in circuitu eorum et adoraverunt eos et ad iracundiam concitaverunt Dominum
And they left the Lord, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt: and they followed strange gods, and the gods of the people that dwelt round about them, and they adored them: and they provoked the Lord to anger,
||dimittentes eum et servientes Baal et Astharoth
Forsaking him, and serving Baal and Astaroth
||iratusque Dominus contra Israhel tradidit eos in manibus diripientium qui ceperunt eos et vendiderunt hostibus qui habitabant per gyrum nec potuerunt resistere adversariis suis
And the Lord being angry against Israel, delivered them into the hands of plunderers: who took them and sold them to their enemies, that dwelt round about: neither could they stand against their enemies:
||sed quocumque pergere voluissent manus Domini erat super eos sicut locutus est et iuravit eis et vehementer adflicti sunt
But whithersoever they meant to go, the hand of the Lord was upon them, as he had said, and as he had sworn to them: and they were greatly distressed.
||suscitavitque Dominus iudices qui liberarent eos de vastantium manibus sed nec illos audire voluerunt
And the Lord raised up judges, to deliver them from the hands of those that oppressed them: but they would not hearken to them,
||fornicantes cum diis alienis et adorantes eos cito deseruerunt viam per quam ingressi fuerant patres eorum et audientes mandata Domini omnia fecere contraria
Committing fornication with strange gods, and adoring them. They quickly forsook the way, in which their fathers had walked: and hearing the commandments of the Lord, they did all things contrary.
||cumque Dominus iudices suscitaret in diebus eorum flectebatur misericordia et audiebat adflictorum gemitus et liberabat eos de caede vastantium
And when the Lord raised them up judges, in their days, he was moved to mercy, and heard the groanings of the afflicted, and delivered them from the slaughter of the oppressors.
||postquam autem mortuus esset iudex revertebantur et multo maiora faciebant quam fecerant patres sui sequentes deos alienos et servientes eis et adorantes illos non dimiserunt adinventiones suas et viam durissimam per quam ambulare consueverant
But after the judge was dead, they returned, and did much worse things than their fathers had done, following strange gods, serving them, and adoring them. They left not their own inventions, and the stubborn way, by which they were accustomed to walk.
||iratusque est furor Domini in Israhel et ait quia irritum fecit gens ista pactum meum quod pepigeram cum patribus eorum et vocem meam audire contempsit
And the wrath of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he said: Behold this nation hath made void my covenant, which I had made with their fathers, and hath despised to hearken to my voice:
||et ego non delebo gentes quas dimisit Iosue et mortuus est
I also will not destroy the nations which Josue left when he died:
||ut in ipsis experiar Israhel utrum custodiant viam Domini et ambulent in ea sicut custodierunt patres eorum an non
That through them I may try Israel, whether they will keep the way of the Lord, and walk in it, as their fathers kept it, or not.
||dimisit ergo Dominus omnes has nationes et cito subvertere noluit nec tradidit in manibus Iosue
The Lord therefore left all these nations, and would not quickly destroy them, neither did he deliver them into the hands of Josue.
