||vae qui cogitatis inutile et operamini malum in cubilibus vestris in luce matutina faciunt illud quoniam contra Deum est manus eorum
Woe to you that devise that which is unprofitable, and work evil in your beds: in the morning light they execute it, because their hand is against God.
||et concupierunt agros et violenter tulerunt et domos rapuerunt et calumniabantur virum et domum eius virum et hereditatem eius
And they have coveted fields, and taken them by violence, and houses they have forcibly taken away: and oppressed a man and his house, a man and his inheritance.
||idcirco haec dicit Dominus ecce ego cogito super familiam istam malum unde non auferetis colla vestra et non ambulabitis superbi quoniam tempus pessimum est
Therefore thus saith the Lord: Behold I devise an evil against this family: from which you shall not withdraw your necks, and you shall not walk haughtily, for this is a very evil time.
||in die illa sumetur super vos parabola et cantabitur canticum cum suavitate dicentium depopulatione vastati sumus pars populi mei commutata est quomodo recedet a me cum revertatur qui regiones nostras dividat
In that day a parable shall be taken up upon you, and a song shall be sung with melody by them that say: We are laid waste and spoiled: the portion of my people is changed: how shall he depart from me, whereas he is returning that will divide our land?
||propter hoc non erit tibi mittens funiculum sortis in coetu Domini
Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast the cord of a lot in the assembly of the Lord.
||ne loquamini loquentes non stillabit super istos non conprehendet confusio
Speak ye not, saying: It shall not drop upon these, confusion shall not take them.
||dicit domus Iacob numquid adbreviatus est spiritus Domini aut tales sunt cogitationes eius nonne verba mea bona sunt cum eo qui recte graditur
The house of Jacob saith: Is the Spirit of the Lord straitened or are these his thoughts? Are not my words good to him that walketh uprightly?
||et e contrario populus meus in adversarium consurrexit desuper tunica pallium sustulistis eos qui transiebant simpliciter convertistis in bellum
But my people, on the contrary, are risen up as an enemy: you have taken away the cloak off from the coat: and them that passed harmless you have turned to war.
||mulieres populi mei eiecistis de domo deliciarum suarum a parvulis earum tulistis laudem meam in perpetuum
You have cast out the women of my people from their houses, in which they took delight: you have taken my praise forever from their children.
||surgite et ite quia non habetis hic requiem propter inmunditiam eius corrumpetur putredine pessima
Arise ye, and depart, for there is no rest here for you. For that uncleanness of the land, it shall be corrupted with a grievous corruption.
||utinam non essem vir habens spiritum et mendacium potius loquerer stillabo tibi in vinum et in ebrietatem et erit super quem stillatur populus iste
Would God I were not a man that hath the spirit, and that I rather spoke a lie: I will let drop to thee of wine, and of drunkeness: and it shall be this people upon whom it shall drop.
||congregatione congregabo Iacob totum te in unum conducam reliquias Israhel pariter ponam illum quasi gregem in ovili quasi pecus in medio caularum tumultuabuntur a multitudine hominum
I will assemble and gather together all of thee, O Jacob: I will bring together the remnant of Israel, I will put them together as a flock in the fold, as sheep in the midst of the sheepcotes, they shall make a tumult by reason of the multitude of men.
||ascendet enim pandens iter ante eos divident et transibunt portam et egredientur per eam et transibit rex eorum coram eis et Dominus in capite eorum
For he shall go up that shall open the way before them: they shall divide and pass through the gate, and shall come in by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the Lord at the head of them.
