Revelation (Apocalypse)



Naboth, for denying his vineyard to king Achab, is by Jezabel's commandment, falsely accused and stoned to death. For which crime Elias denounceth to Achab the judgments of God: upon his humbling himself the sentence is mitigated.

chapters: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22
211And after these things, Naboth the Jezrahelite, who was in Jezrahel, had at that time a vineyard, near the palace of Achab, king of Samaria.post verba autem haec vinea erat Naboth Hiezrahelitae qui erat in Hiezrahel iuxta palatium Ahab regis Samariae
212And Achab spoke to Naboth, saying: Give me thy vineyard, that I may make me a garden of herbs, because it is nigh, and adjoining to my house; and I will give thee for it a better vineyard: or if thou think it more convenient for thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.locutus est ergo Ahab ad Naboth dicens da mihi vineam tuam ut faciam mihi hortum holerum quia vicina est et prope domum meam daboque tibi pro ea vineam meliorem aut si tibi commodius putas argenti pretium quanto digna est
213Naboth answered him: The Lord be merciful to me, and not let me give thee the inheritance of my fathers.cui respondit Naboth propitius mihi sit Dominus ne dem hereditatem patrum meorum tibi
214And Achab came into his house angry and fretting, because of the word that Naboth, the Jezrahelite, had spoken to him, saying: I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And casting himself upon his bed, he turned away his face to the wall, and would eat no bread.venit ergo Ahab in domum suam indignans et frendens super verbo quod locutus fuerat ad eum Naboth Hiezrahelites dicens non do tibi hereditatem patrum meorum et proiciens se in lectulum suum avertit faciem ad parietem et non comedit panem
215And Jezabel, his wife, went in to him, and said to him: What is the matter that thy soul is so grieved? and why eatest thou no bread?ingressa est autem ad eum Hiezabel uxor sua dixitque ei quid est hoc unde anima tua contristata est et quare non comedis panem
216And he answered her: I spoke to Naboth, the Jezrahelite, and said to him: Give me thy vineyard, and take money for it: or if it please thee, I will give thee a better vineyard for it. And he said: I will not give thee my vineyard.qui respondit ei locutus sum Naboth Hiezrahelitae et dixi ei da mihi vineam tuam accepta pecunia aut si tibi placet dabo tibi vineam pro ea et ille ait non do tibi vineam meam
217Then Jezabel, his wife, said to him. Thou art of great authority indeed, and governest well the kingdom of Israel. Arise, and eat bread, and be of good cheer; I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezrahelite.dixit ergo ad eum Hiezabel uxor eius grandis auctoritatis es et bene regis regnum Israhel surge et comede panem et aequo esto animo ego dabo tibi vineam Naboth Hiezrahelitae
218So she wrote letters in Achab's name, and sealed them with his ring, and sent them to the ancients, and the chief men that were in his city, and that dwelt with Naboth.scripsit itaque litteras ex nomine Ahab et signavit eas anulo eius et misit ad maiores natu et ad optimates qui erant in civitate eius et habitabant cum Naboth
219And this was the tenor of the letters: Proclaim a fast, and make Naboth sit among the chief of the people;litterarum autem erat ista sententia praedicate ieiunium et sedere facite Naboth inter primos populi
2110And suborn two men, sons of Belial, against him. and let them bear false witness; that he hath blasphemed God and the king: and then carry him out, and stone him, and so let him die.et submittite duos viros filios Belial contra eum et falsum testimonium dicant benedixit Deum et regem et educite eum et lapidate sicque moriatur
2111And the men of his city, the ancients and nobles, that dwelt with him in the city, did as Jezabel had commanded them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them;fecerunt ergo cives eius maiores natu et optimates qui habitabant cum eo in urbe sicut praeceperat eis Hiezabel et sicut scriptum erat in litteris quas miserat ad eos
2112They proclaimed a fast, and made Naboth sit among the chief of the people.praedicaverunt ieiunium et sedere fecerunt Naboth inter primos populi
2113And bringing two men, sons of the devil, they made them sit against him: and they, like men of the devil, bore witness against him before the people: saying: Naboth hath blasphemed God and the king. Wherefore they brought him forth without the city, and stoned him to death.et adductis duobus viris filiis diaboli fecerunt eos sedere contra eum at illi scilicet ut viri diabolici dixerunt contra eum testimonium coram multitudine benedixit Naboth Deo et regi quam ob rem eduxerunt eum extra civitatem et lapidibus interfecerunt
2114And they sent to Jezabel, saying: Naboth is stoned, and is dead.miseruntque ad Hiezabel dicentes lapidatus est Naboth et mortuus est
2115And it came to pass, when Jezabel heard that Naboth was stoned, and dead, that she said to Achab: Arise, and take possession of the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezrahelite, who would not agree with thee, and give it thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.factum est autem cum audisset Hiezabel lapidatum Naboth et mortuum locuta est ad Ahab surge posside vineam Naboth Hiezrahelitae qui noluit tibi adquiescere et dare eam accepta pecunia non enim vivit Naboth sed mortuus est
2116And when Achab heard this, to wit, that Naboth was dead, he arose, and went down into the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezrahelite, to take possession of it.quod cum audisset Ahab mortuum videlicet Naboth surrexit et descendebat in vineam Naboth Hiezrahelitae ut possideret eam
2117And the word of the Lord came to Elias, the Thesbite, saying:factus est igitur sermo Domini ad Heliam Thesbiten dicens
2118Arise, and go down to meet Achab, king of Israel, who is in Samaria: behold he is going down to the vineyard of Naboth, to take possession of it:surge et descende in occursum Ahab regis Israhel qui est in Samaria ecce ad vineam Naboth descendit ut possideat eam
2119And thou shalt speak to him, saying: Thus saith the Lord: Thou hast slain: moreover also thou hast taken possession. And after these words thou shalt add: Thus saith the Lord: In this place, wherein the dogs have licked the blood of Naboth, they shall lick thy blood also.et loqueris ad eum dicens haec dicit Dominus occidisti insuper et possedisti et post haec addes haec dicit Dominus in loco hoc in quo linxerunt canes sanguinem Naboth lambent tuum quoque sanguinem
2120And Achab said to Elias: Hast thou found me thy enemy? He said: I have found thee because thou art sold, to do evil in the sight of the Lord.et ait Ahab ad Heliam num invenisti me inimice mee qui dixit inveni eo quod venundatus sis ut faceres malum in conspectu Domini
2121Behold I will bring evil upon thee, and I will cut down thy posterity, and I will kill of Achab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up, and the last in Israel.ecce ego inducam super te malum et demetam posteriora tua et interficiam de Ahab mingentem ad parietem et clausum et ultimum in Israhel
2122And I will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nabat, and like the house of Baasa the son of Ahias: for what thou hast done to provoke me to anger, and for making Israel to sin.et dabo domum tuam sicut domum Hieroboam filii Nabath et sicut domum Baasa filii Ahia quia egisti ut me ad iracundiam provocares et peccare fecisti Israhel
2123And of Jezabel also, the Lord spoke, saying: The dogs shall eat Jezabel in the field of Jezrahel.sed et de Hiezabel locutus est Dominus dicens canes comedent Hiezabel in agro Hiezrahel
2124If Achab die in the city, the dogs shall eat him: but if he die in the field, the birds of the air shall eat him.si mortuus fuerit Ahab in civitate comedent eum canes si autem mortuus fuerit in agro comedent eum volucres caeli
2125Now, there was not such another as Achab, who was sold to do evil in the sight of the Lord: for his wife, Jezabel, set him on,igitur non fuit alter talis ut Ahab qui venundatus est ut faceret malum in conspectu Domini concitavit enim eum Hiezabel uxor sua
2126And he became abominable, insomuch that he followed the idols which the Amorrhites had made, whom the Lord destroyed before the face of the children of Israel.et abominabilis effectus est in tantum ut sequeretur idola quae fecerant Amorrei quos consumpsit Dominus a facie filiorum Israhel
2127And when Achab had heard these words, he rent his garments, and put haircloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and slept in sackcloth, and walked with his head cast down.itaque cum audisset Ahab sermones istos scidit vestem suam et operuit cilicio carnem suam ieiunavitque et dormivit in sacco et ambulabat dimisso capite
2128And the word of the Lord came to Elias, the Thesbite, saying:factus est autem sermo Domini ad Heliam Thesbiten dicens
2129Hast thou not seen Achab humbled before me? therefore, because he hath humbled himself, for my sake, I will not bring the evil in his days, but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.nonne vidisti humiliatum Ahab coram me quia igitur humiliatus est mei causa non inducam malum in diebus eius sed in diebus filii sui inferam malum domui eius
