chapters: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50
491And Jacob called his sons, and said to them: Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you the things that shall befall you in the last days.vocavit autem Iacob filios suos et ait eis congregamini ut adnuntiem quae ventura sunt vobis diebus novissimis
492Gather yourselves together, and hear, O ye sons of Jacob, hearken to Israel, your father:congregamini et audite filii Iacob audite Israhel patrem vestrum
493Ruben, my firstborn, thou art my strength, and the beginning of my sorrow; excelling in gifts, greater in command.Ruben primogenitus meus tu fortitudo mea et principium doloris mei prior in donis maior imperio
494Thou art poured out as water, grow thou not; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed, and didst defile his couch.effusus es sicut aqua non crescas quia ascendisti cubile patris tui et maculasti stratum eius
495Simeon and Levi brethren: vessels of iniquity waging war.Symeon et Levi fratres vasa iniquitatis bellantia
496Let not my soul go into their counsel, nor my glory be in their assembly: because in their fury they slew a man, and in their self-will they undermined a wall.in consilio eorum ne veniat anima mea et in coetu illorum non sit gloria mea quia in furore suo occiderunt virum et in voluntate sua suffoderunt murum
497Cursed be their fury, because it was stubborn: and their wrath, because it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and will scatter them in Israel.maledictus furor eorum quia pertinax et indignatio illorum quia dura dividam eos in Iacob et dispergam illos in Israhel
498Juda, thee shall thy brethren praise: thy hand shall be on the necks of thy enemies; the sons of thy father shall bow down to thee.Iuda te laudabunt fratres tui manus tua in cervicibus inimicorum tuorum adorabunt te filii patris tui
499Juda is a lion's whelp: to the prey, my son, thou art gone up: resting thou hast couched as a lion, and as a lioness, who shall rouse him?catulus leonis Iuda a praeda fili mi ascendisti requiescens accubuisti ut leo et quasi leaena quis suscitabit eum
4910The sceptre shall not be taken away from Juda, nor a ruler from his thigh, till he come that is to be sent, and he shall be the expectation of nations.non auferetur sceptrum de Iuda et dux de femoribus eius donec veniat qui mittendus est et ipse erit expectatio gentium
4911Tying his foal to the vineyard, and his ass, O my son, to the vine. He shall wash his robe in wine, and his garment in the blood of the grape.ligans ad vineam pullum suum et ad vitem o fili mi asinam suam lavabit vino stolam suam et sanguine uvae pallium suum
4912His eyes are more beautiful than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.pulchriores oculi eius vino et dentes lacte candidiores
4913Zabulon shall dwell on the seashore, and in the road of ships, reaching as far as Sidon.Zabulon in litore maris habitabit et in statione navium pertingens usque ad Sidonem
4914Issachar shall be a strong ass, lying down between the borders.Isachar asinus fortis accubans inter terminos
4915He saw rest that it was good: and the land that it was excellent: and he bowed his shoulder to carry, and became a servant under tribute.vidit requiem quod esset bona et terram quod optima et subposuit umerum suum ad portandum factusque est tributis serviens
4916Dan shall judge his people like another tribe in Israel.Dan iudicabit populum suum sicut et alia tribus Israhel
4917Let Dan be a snake in the way, a serpent in the path, that biteth the horse's heels, that his rider may fall backward.fiat Dan coluber in via cerastes in semita mordens ungulas equi ut cadat ascensor eius retro
4918I will look for thy salvation, O Lord.salutare tuum expectabo Domine
4919Gad, being girded, shall fight before him: and he himself shall be girded backward.Gad accinctus proeliabitur ante eum et ipse accingetur retrorsum
4920Aser, his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield dainties to kings.Aser pinguis panis eius et praebebit delicias regibus
4921Nephthali, a hart let loose, and giving words of beauty.Nepthalim cervus emissus et dans eloquia pulchritudinis
4922Joseph is a growing son, a growing son and comely to behold: the daughters run to and fro upon the wall;filius adcrescens Ioseph filius adcrescens et decorus aspectu filiae discurrerunt super murum
4923But they that held darts, provoked him, and quarrelled with him, and envied him.sed exasperaverunt eum et iurgati sunt invideruntque illi habentes iacula
4924His bow rested upon the strong, and the bands of his arms and his hands were loosed, by the hands of the mighty one of Jacob: thence he came forth a pastor, the stone of Israel.sedit in forti arcus eius et dissoluta sunt vincula brachiorum et manuum illius per manus potentis Iacob inde pastor egressus est lapis Israhel
4925The God of thy father shall be thy helper, and the Almighty shall bless thee with the blessings of heaven above, with the blessings of the deep that lieth beneath, with the blessings of the breasts and of the womb.Deus patris tui erit adiutor tuus et Omnipotens benedicet tibi benedictionibus caeli desuper benedictionibus abyssi iacentis deorsum benedictionibus uberum et vulvae
4926The blessings of thy father are strengthened with the blessings of his fathers: until the desire of the everlasting hills should come: may they be upon the head of Joseph, and upon the crown of the Nazarite among his brethren.benedictiones patris tui confortatae sunt benedictionibus patrum eius donec veniret desiderium collium aeternorum fiant in capite Ioseph et in vertice nazarei inter fratres suos
4927Benjamin a ravenous wolf, in the morning shall eat the prey, and in the evening shall divide the spoil.Beniamin lupus rapax mane comedet praedam et vespere dividet spolia
4928All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: these things their father spoke to them, and he blessed every one with their proper blessings.omnes hii in tribubus Israhel duodecim haec locutus est eis pater suus benedixitque singulis benedictionibus propriis
4929And he charged them, saying: I am now going to be gathered to my people: bury me with my fathers in the double cave, which is in the field of Ephron the Hethite,et praecepit eis dicens ego congregor ad populum meum sepelite me cum patribus meis in spelunca duplici quae est in agro Ephron Hetthei
4930Over against Mambre, in the land of Chanaan, which Abraham bought together with the field, of Ephron the Hethite, for a possession to bury in.contra Mambre in terra Chanaan quam emit Abraham cum agro ab Ephron Hettheo in possessionem sepulchri
4931There they buried him, and Sara his wife: there was Isaac buried with Rebecca, his wife: there also Lia doth lie buried.ibi sepelierunt eum et Sarram uxorem eius ibi sepultus est Isaac cum Rebecca coniuge ibi et Lia condita iacet
4932And when he had ended the commandments, wherewith he instructed his sons, he drew up his feet upon the bed, and died: and he was gathered to his people.finitisque mandatis quibus filios instruebat collegit pedes suos super lectulum et obiit adpositusque est ad populum suum
