Latin Vulgate . Com : Helping You
Understand Difficult Verses*


audiens sapiens sapientior erit et intellegens gubernacula possidebit
"A wise man shall hear, and shall be wiser: and he that understandeth shall possess governments."

Latin Vulgate . com helps you understand difficult verses in the Bible using the original Latin Vulgate as a reference. Sometimes meaning gets lost in the translation. By going back to one of the original texts, you can often figure out the meaning. One of these original texts is the Latin Vulgate written by Saint Jerome.

You Can Already Translate Some Latin!


You don't need to know Latin to understand it. Since many words in English are derived from Latin you can readily translate many words, and with the English translation side-by-side you can fill-in the meanings of those words you don't know. To see this, let's take a look at this verse from Ecclesiastes:

Ecc.Douay-RheimsLatin VulgateKing James
110Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us.nihil sub sole novum nec valet quisquam dicere ecce hoc recens est iam enim praecessit in saeculis quae fuerunt ante nosIs there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

Why you need to learn Latin

  • Latin is the language of science. Did you know the word genus means "kind" in Latin? "Species" is derived from the Latin word specere, which means "to look." Thus, knowing some Latin can help you understand and remember scientific terms.
  • Many of the great classics were written in Latin, and their message often gets lost in the translation to English.
  • Many English words are derived from Latin; knowing Latin allows you to more easily determine the meaning of unfamiliar words.
