THE PROPHECY OF EZECHIEL: Chapter 20


God refuses to answer the ancients of Israel inquiring by the prophet: but by him setteth his benefits before their eyes, and their heinous sins: threatening yet greater punishments: but still mixed with mercy.

201And it came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month: there came men of the ancients of Israel to inquire of the Lord, and they sat before me.et factum est in anno septimo in quinto mense in decima mensis venerunt viri de senioribus Israhel ut interrogarent Dominum et sederunt coram me
202And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
203Son of man, speak to the ancients of Israel and say to them: Thus saith the Lord God: Are you come to inquire of me? As I live, I will not answer you, saith the Lord God.fili hominis loquere senioribus Israhel et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus Deus num ad interrogandum me vos venistis vivo ego quia non respondebo vobis ait Dominus Deus
204If thou judgest them, if thou judgest, O son of man, declare to them the abominations of their fathers.si iudicas eos si iudicas fili hominis abominationes patrum eorum ostende eis
205And say to them: Thus saith the Lord God: In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up my hand for the race of the house of Jacob: and appeared to them in the land of Egypt, and lifted up my hand for them, saying: I am the Lord your God:et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus Deus in die qua elegi Israhel et levavi manum meam pro stirpe domus Iacob et apparui eis in terra Aegypti et levavi manum meam pro eis dicens ego Dominus Deus vester
206In that day I lifted up my hand for them to bring them out of the land of Egypt, into a land which I had provided for them, flowing with milk and honey, which excelled amongst all lands.in die illa levavi manum meam pro eis ut educerem eos de terra Aegypti in terram quam provideram eis fluentem lacte et melle quae est egregia inter omnes terras
207And I said to them: Let every man cast away the scandals of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.et dixi ad eos unusquisque offensiones oculorum suorum abiciat et in idolis Aegypti nolite pollui ego Dominus Deus vester
208But they provoked me, and would not hearken to me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of his eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: and I said I would pour out my indignation upon them, and accomplish my wrath against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.et inritaverunt me nolueruntque audire unusquisque abominationes oculorum suorum non proiecit nec idola Aegypti reliquerunt et dixi ut effunderem indignationem meam super eos et implerem iram meam in eis in medio terrae Aegypti
209But I did otherwise for my name's sake, that it might not be violated before the nations, in the midst of whom they were, and among whom I made myself known to them, to bring them out of the land of Egypt.et feci propter nomen meum ut non violaretur coram gentibus in quarum medio erant et inter quas apparui eis ut educerem eos de terra Aegypti
2010Therefore I brought them out from the land of Egypt, and brought them into the desert.eieci ergo eos de terra Aegypti et eduxi in desertum
2011And I gave them my statutes, and I shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall live in them.et dedi eis praecepta mea et iudicia mea ostendi eis quae faciat homo et vivat in eis
2012Moreover I gave them also my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them: and that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.insuper et sabbata mea dedi eis ut esset signum inter me et eos et scirent quia ego Dominus sanctificans eos
2013But the house of Israel provoked me in the desert: they walked not in my statutes, and they cast away my judgments, which if a man do he shall live in them: and they grievously violated my sabbaths. I said therefore that I would pour out my indignation upon them in the desert, and would consume them.et inritaverunt me domus Israhel in deserto in praeceptis meis non ambulaverunt et iudicia mea proiecerunt quae faciens homo vivet in eis et sabbata mea violaverunt vehementer dixi ergo ut effunderem furorem meum super eos in deserto et consumerem eos
2014But I spared them for the sake of my name, lest it should be profaned before the nations, from which I brought them out, in their sight.et feci propter nomen meum ne violaretur coram gentibus de quibus eieci eos in conspectu earum
2015So I lifted up my hand over them in the desert, not to bring them into the land which I had given them flowing with milk and honey, the best of all lands.ego igitur levavi manum meam super eos in deserto ne inducerem eos in terram quam dedi eis fluentem lacte et melle praecipuam terrarum omnium
2016Because they cast off my judgments, and walked not in my statutes, and violated my sabbaths: for their heart went after idols.quia iudicia mea proiecerunt et in praeceptis meis non ambulaverunt et sabbata mea violaverunt post idola enim cor eorum gradiebatur
2017Yet my eye spared them, so that I destroyed them not: neither did I consume them in the desert.et pepercit oculus meus super eos ut non interficerem eos nec consumpsi eos in deserto
2018And I said to their children in the wilderness: Walk not in the statutes of your fathers, and observe not their judgments, nor be ye defiled with their idols:dixi autem ad filios eorum in solitudine in praeceptis patrum vestrorum nolite incedere nec iudicia eorum custodiatis nec in idolis eorum polluamini
2019I am the Lord your God: walk ye in my statutes, and observe my judgments, and do them.ego Dominus Deus vester in praeceptis meis ambulate et iudicia mea custodite et facite ea
2020And sanctify my sabbaths, that they may be a sign between me and you: and that you may know that I am the Lord your God.et sabbata mea sanctificate ut sit signum inter me et vos et sciatur quia ego Dominus Deus vester
2021But their children provoked me, they walked not in my commandments, nor observed my judgments to do them: which if a man do, he shall live in them: and they violated my sabbaths: and I threatened to pour out my indignation upon them, and to accomplish my wrath in them in the desert.et exacerbaverunt me filii in praeceptis meis non ambulaverunt et iudicia mea non custodierunt ut facerent ea quae cum fecerit homo vivet in eis et sabbata mea violaverunt et comminatus sum ut effunderem furorem meum super eos et implerem iram meam in eis in deserto
2022But I turned away my hand, and wrought for my name's sake, that it might not be violated before the nations, out of which I brought them forth in their sight.averti autem manum meam et feci propter nomen meum ut non violaretur coram gentibus de quibus eieci eos in oculis earum
2023Again I lifted up my hand upon them in the wilderness, to disperse them among the nations, and scatter them through the countries:iterum levavi manum meam in eos in solitudine ut dispergerem illos in nationes et ventilarem in terras
2024Because they had not done my judgments, and had cast off my statutes, and had violated my sabbaths, and their eyes had been after the idols of their fathers.eo quod iudicia mea non fecissent et praecepta mea reprobassent et sabbata mea violassent et post idola patrum suorum fuissent oculi eorum
2025Therefore I also gave them statutes that were not good, and judgments, in which they shall not live.ergo et ego dedi eis praecepta non bona et iudicia in quibus non vivent
2026And I polluted them in their own gifts, when they offered all that opened the womb, for their offences: and they shall know that I am the Lord.et pollui eos in muneribus suis cum offerrent omne quod aperit vulvam propter delicta sua et scient quia ego Dominus
2027Wherefore speak to the house of Israel, O son of man, and say to them: Thus saith the Lord God: Moreover in this also your fathers blaspheme me, when they had despised and contemned me;quam ob rem loquere ad domum Israhel fili hominis et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus Deus adhuc et in hoc blasphemaverunt me patres vestri cum sprevissent me contemnentes
2028And I had brought them into the land, for which I lifted up my hand to give it them: they saw every high hill, and every shady tree, and there they sacrificed their victims: and there they presented the provocation of their offerings, and there they set their sweet odours, and poured forth their libations.et induxissem eos in terram super quam levavi manum meam ut darem eis viderunt omnem collem excelsum et omne lignum nemorosum et immolaverunt ibi victimas suas et dederunt ibi inritationem oblationis suae et posuerunt ibi odorem suavitatis suae et libaverunt libationes suas
2029And I said to them: What meaneth the high place to which you go? and the name thereof was called High-place even to this day.et dixi ad eos quid est excelsum ad quod vos ingredimini et vocatum est nomen eius Excelsum usque ad hanc diem
2030Wherefore say to the house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord God: Verily, you are defiled in the way of your fathers, and you commit fornication with their abominations.propterea dic ad domum Israhel haec dicit Dominus Deus certe in via patrum vestrorum vos polluimini et post offendicula eorum vos fornicamini
2031And you defile yourselves with all your idols unto this day, in the offering of your gifts, when you make your children pass through the fire: and shall I answer you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord God, I will not answer you.et in oblatione donorum vestrorum cum transducitis filios vestros per ignem vos polluimini in omnibus idolis vestris usque hodie et ego respondebo vobis domus Israhel vivo ego dicit Dominus Deus quia non respondebo vobis
2032Neither shall the thought of your mind come to pass, by which you say: We will be as the Gentiles, and as the families of the earth, to worship stocks and stones.neque cogitatio mentis vestrae fiet dicentium erimus sicut gentes et sicut cognationes terrae ut colamus ligna et lapides
2033As I live, saith the Lord God, I will reign over you with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.vivo ego dicit Dominus Deus quoniam in manu forti et brachio extento et in furore effuso regnabo super vos
2034And I will bring you out from the people, and I will gather you out of the countries, in which you are scattered, I will reign over you with a strong hand and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.et educam vos de populis et congregabo vos de terris in quibus dispersi estis in manu valida et brachio extento et in furore effuso regnabo super vos
2035And I will bring you into the wilderness of people, and there will I plead with you face to face.et adducam vos in desertum populorum et iudicabor vobiscum ibi facie ad faciem
2036As I pleaded against your fathers in the desert of the land of Egypt; even so will I judge you, saith the Lord God.sicut iudicio contendi adversum patres vestros in deserto terrae Aegypti sic iudicabo vos dicit Dominus Deus
2037And I will make you subject to my sceptre, and will bring you into the bands of the covenant.et subiciam vos sceptro meo et inducam vos in vinculis foederis
2038And I will pick out from among you the transgressors, and the wicked, and will bring them out of the land where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and you shall know that I am the Lord.et eligam de vobis transgressores et impios et de terra incolatus eorum educam eos et terram Israhel non ingredientur et scietis quia ego Dominus
2039And as for you, O house of Israel: thus saith the Lord God: Walk ye every one after your idols, and serve them. But if in this also you hear me not, but defile my holy name any more with your gifts, and with your idols;et vos domus Israhel haec dicit Dominus Deus singuli post idola vestra ambulate et servite eis quod si et in hoc non audieritis me et nomen meum sanctum pollueritis ultra in muneribus vestris et in idolis vestris
2040In my holy mountain, in the high mountain of Israel, saith the Lord God, there shall all the house of Israel serve me; all of them I say, in the land in which they shall please me, and there will I require your firstfruits, and the chief of your tithes with all your sanctifications.in monte sancto meo in monte excelso Israhel ait Dominus Deus ibi serviet mihi omnis domus Israhel omnes inquam in terra in qua placebunt mihi et ibi quaeram primitias vestras et initium decimarum vestrarum in omnibus sanctificationibus vestris
2041I will accept of you for an odour of sweetness, when I shall have brought you out from the people, and shall have gathered you out of the lands into which you are scattered, and I will be sanctified in you in the sight of the nations.in odorem suavitatis suscipiam vos cum eduxero vos de populis et congregavero vos de terris in quas dispersi estis et sanctificabor in vobis in oculis nationum
2042And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall have brought you into the land of Israel, into the land for which I lifted up my hand to give it to your fathers.et scietis quia ego Dominus cum induxero vos ad terram Israhel in terram pro qua levavi manum meam ut darem eam patribus vestris
2043And there you shall remember your ways, and all your wicked doings with which you have been defiled; and you shall be displeased with yourselves in your own sight, for all your wicked deeds which you committed.et recordabimini ibi viarum vestrarum et omnium scelerum vestrorum quibus polluti estis in eis et displicebitis vobis in conspectu vestro in omnibus malitiis vestris quas fecistis
2044And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall have done well by you for my own name's sake, and not according to your evil ways, nor according to your wicked deeds, O house of Israel, saith the Lord God.et scietis quia ego Dominus cum benefecero vobis propter nomen meum non secundum vias vestras malas neque secundum scelera vestra pessima domus Israhel ait Dominus Deus
2045And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens
2046Son of man, set thy face against the way of the south, and drop towards the south, and prophesy against the forest of the south field.fili hominis pone faciem tuam contra viam austri et stilla ad africum et propheta ad saltum agri meridiani
2047And say to the south forest: Hear the word of the Lord: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold I will kindle a fire in thee, and will burn in thee every green tree, and every dry tree: the flame of the fire shall not be quenched: and every face shall be burned in it, from the south even to the north.et dices saltui meridiano audi verbum Domini haec dicit Dominus Deus ecce ego succendam in te ignem et conburam in te omne lignum viride et omne lignum aridum non extinguetur flamma succensionis et conburetur in ea omnis facies ab austro usque ad aquilonem
2048And all flesh shall see, that I the Lord have kindled it, and it shall not be quenched.et videbit universa caro quia ego Dominus succendi eam nec extinguetur
2049And I said: Ah, ah, ah, O Lord God: they say of me: Doth not this man speak by parables?et dixi ha ha ha Domine Deus ipsi dicunt de me numquid non per parabolas loquitur iste
