EnglishLatin
31King Nabuchodonosor made a statue of gold, of sixty cubits high, and six cubits broad, and he set it up in the plain of Dura, of the province of Babylon.Nabuchodonosor rex fecit statuam auream altitudine cubitorum sexaginta latitudine cubitorum sex et statuit eam in campo Duram provinciae Babylonis
32Then Nabuchodonosor, the king, sent to call together the nobles, the magistrates, and the judges, the captains, the rulers, and governors, and all the chief men of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the statue which king Nabuchodonosor had set up.itaque Nabuchodonosor rex misit ad congregandos satrapas magistratus et iudices duces et tyrannos et praefectos omnesque principes regionum ut convenirent ad dedicationem statuae quam erexerat Nabuchodonosor rex
33Then the nobles, the magistrates, and the judges, the captains, and rulers, and the great men that were placed in authority, and all the princes of the provinces, were gathered together to come to the dedication of the statue, which king Nabuchodonosor had set up. And they stood before the statue which king Nabuchodonosor had set up.tunc congregati sunt satrapae magistratus et iudices duces et tyranni et optimates qui erant in potestatibus constituti et universi principes regionum ut convenirent ad dedicationem statuae quam erexerat Nabuchodonosor rex stabant autem in conspectu statuae quam posuerat Nabuchodonosor
34Then a herald cried with a strong voice: To you it is commanded, O nations, tribes and languages:et praeco clamabat valenter vobis dicitur populis tribubus et linguis
35That in the hour that you shall hear the sound of the trumpet, and of the flute, and of the harp, of the sackbut, and of the psaltery, and of the symphony, and of all kind of music, ye fall down and adore the golden statue which king Nabuchodonosor hath set up.in hora qua audieritis sonitum tubae et fistulae et citharae sambucae et psalterii et symphoniae et universi generis musicorum cadentes adorate statuam auream quam constituit Nabuchodonosor rex
36But if any man shall not fall down and adore, he shall the same hour be cast into a furnace of burning fire.si quis autem non prostratus adoraverit eadem hora mittetur in fornacem ignis ardentis
37Upon this, therefore, at the time when all the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the flute, and the harp, of the sackbut, and the psaltery, of the symphony, and of all kind of music, all the nations, tribes, and languages fell down and adored the golden statue which king Nabuchodonosor had set up.post haec igitur statim ut audierunt omnes populi sonitum tubae fistulae et citharae sambucae et psalterii et symphoniae et omnis generis musicorum cadentes omnes populi et tribus et linguae adoraverunt statuam auream quam constituerat Nabuchodonosor rex
38And presently at that very time some Chaldeans came and accused the Jews,statimque et in ipso tempore accedentes viri chaldei accusaverunt Iudaeos
39And said to king Nabuchodonosor: O king, live for ever:dixeruntque Nabuchodonosor regi rex in aeternum vive
310Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the trumpet, the flute, and the harp, of the sackbut, and the psaltery, of the symphony, and of all kind of music, shall prostrate himself, and adore the golden statue:tu rex posuisti decretum ut omnis homo qui audierit sonitum tubae fistulae et citharae sambucae et psalterii et symphoniae et universi generis musicorum prosternat se et adoret statuam auream
311And that if any man shall not fall down and adore, he should be cast into a furnace of burning fire.si quis autem non procidens adoraverit mittatur in fornacem ignis ardentem
312Now there are certain Jews, whom thou hast set over the works of the province of Babylon, Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago: these men, O king, have slighted thy decree: they worship not thy gods, nor do they adore the golden statue which thou hast set up.sunt ergo viri iudaei quos constituisti super opera regionis Babyloniae Sedrac Misac et Abdenago viri isti contempserunt rex decretum tuum deos tuos non colunt et statuam auream quam erexisti non adorant
313Then Nabuchodonosor in fury, and in wrath, commanded that Sidrach, Misach, ad Abdenago should be brought: who immediately were brought before the king.tunc Nabuchodonosor in furore et in ira praecepit ut adducerentur Sedrac Misac et Abdenago qui confestim adducti sunt in conspectu regis
314And Nabuchodonosor, the king, spoke to them, and said: Is it true, O Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, that you do not worship my gods, nor adore the golden statue that I have set up?pronuntiansque Nabuchodonosor rex ait eis verene Sedrac Misac et Abdenago deos meos non colitis et statuam auream quam constitui non adoratis
315Now, therefore, if you be ready, at what hour soever, you shall hear the sound of the trumpet, flute, harp, sackbut, and psaltery, and symphony, and of all kind of music, prostrate yourselves, and adore the statue which I have made: but if you do not adore, you shall be cast the same hour into the furnace of burning fire: and who is the God that shall deliver you out of my hand?nunc ergo si estis parati quacumque hora audieritis sonitum tubae fistulae et citharae sambucae psalterii et symphoniae omnisque generis musicorum prosternite vos et adorate statuam quam feci quod si non adoraveritis eadem hora mittemini in fornacem ignis ardentem et quis est Deus qui eripiat vos de manu mea
316Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, answered, and said to king Nabuchodonosor: We have no occasion to answer thee concerning this matter.respondentes Sedrac Misac et Abdenago dixerunt regi Nabuchodonosor non oportet nos de hac re respondere tibi
317For behold our God, whom we worship, is able to save us from the furnace of burning fire, and to deliver us out of thy hands, O king.ecce enim Deus noster quem colimus potest eripere nos de camino ignis ardentis et de manibus tuis rex liberare
318But if he will not, be it known to thee, O king, that we will not worship thy gods, nor adore the golden statue which thou hast set up.quod si noluerit notum tibi sit rex quia deos tuos non colimus et statuam auream quam erexisti non adoramus
319Then was Nabuchodonosor filled with fury: and the countenance of his face was changed against Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, and he commanded that the furnace should be heated seven times more than it had been accustomed to be heated.tunc Nabuchodonosor repletus est furore et aspectus faciei illius inmutatus est super Sedrac Misac et Abdenago et praecepit ut succenderetur fornax septuplum quam succendi consuerat
320And he commanded the strongest men that were in his army, to bind the feet of Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, and to cast them into the furnace of burning fire.et viris fortissimis de exercitu suo iussit ut ligatis pedibus Sedrac Misac et Abdenago mitterent eos in fornacem ignis ardentem
321And immediately these men were bound, and were cast into the furnace of burning fire, with their coats, and their caps, and their shoes, and their garments.et confestim viri illi vincti cum bracis suis et tiaris et calciamentis et vestibus missi sunt in medium fornacis ignis ardentis
322For the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace was heated exceedingly. And the flame of the fire slew those men that had cast in Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago.nam iussio regis urguebat fornax autem succensa erat nimis porro viros illos qui miserant Sedrac Misac et Abdenago interfecit flamma ignis
323But these three men, that is, Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, fell down bound in the midst of the furnace of burning fire.viri autem hii id est tres Sedrac Misac et Abdenago ceciderunt in medio camini ignis ardentis conligati
324And they walked in the midst of the flame, praising God, and blessing the Lord.et ambulabant in medio flammae laudantes Deum et benedicentes Domino
325Then Azarias standing up, prayed in this manner, and opening his mouth in the midst of the fire, he said:stans autem Azarias oravit sic aperiensque os suum in medio ignis ait
326Blessed art thou, O Lord, the God of our fathers, and thy name is worthy of praise, and glorious for ever:benedictus es Domine Deus patrum nostrorum et laudabilis et gloriosum nomen tuum in saecula
327For thou art just in all that thou hast done to us, and all thy works are true, and thy ways right, and all thy judgments true.quia iustus es in omnibus quae fecisti nobis et universa opera tua vera et viae tuae rectae et omnia iudicia tua vera
328For thou hast executed true judgments in all the things that thou hast brought upon us, and upon Jerusalem, the holy city of our fathers: for according to truth and judgment, thou hast brought all these things upon us for our sins.iudicia enim vera fecisti iuxta omnia quae induxisti super nos et super civitatem sanctam patrum nostrorum Hierusalem quia in veritate et in iudicio induxisti omnia haec propter peccata nostra
329For we have sinned, and committed iniquity, departing from thee: and we have trespassed in all things:peccavimus enim et inique egimus recedentes a te et deliquimus in omnibus
330And we have not hearkened to thy commandments, nor have we observed nor done as thou hadst commanded us, that it might go well with us.et praecepta tua non audivimus nec observavimus nec fecimus sicut praeceperas nobis ut bene nobis esset
331Wherefore, all that thou hast brought upon us, and every thing that thou hast done to us, thou hast done in true judgment:omnia ergo quae induxisti super nos et universa quae fecisti nobis vero iudicio fecisti
332And thou hast delivered us into the hands of our enemies that are unjust, and most wicked, and prevaricators, and to a king unjust, and most wicked beyond all that are upon the earth.et tradidisti nos in manibus inimicorum iniquorum et pessimorum praevaricatorumque et regi iniusto et pessimo ultra omnem terram
333And now we cannot open our mouths: we are become a shame, and a reproach to thy servants, and to them that worship thee.et nunc non possumus aperire os confusio et obprobrium facti sumus servis tuis et his qui colebant te
334Deliver us not up for ever, we beseech thee, for thy name's sake, and abolish not thy covenant.ne quaesumus tradas nosin perpetuum propter nomen tuum et ne dissipes testamentum tuum
335And take not away thy mercy from us, for the sake of Abraham, thy beloved, and Isaac, thy servant, and Israel, thy holy one:neque auferas misericordiam tuam a nobis propter Abraham dilectum tuum et Isaac servum tuum et Israhel sanctum tuum
336To whom thou hast spoken, promising that thou wouldst multiply their seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand that is on the sea shore.quibus locutus es pollicens quod multiplicares semen eorum sicut stellas caeli et sicut harenam quae est in litore maris
337For we, O Lord, are diminished more than any nation, and are brought low in all the earth this day for our sins.quia Domine imminuti sumus plus quam omnes gentes sumusque humiles in universa terra hodie propter peccata nostra
338Neither is there at this time prince, or leader, or prophet, or holocaust, or sacrifice, or oblation, or incense, or place of first fruits before thee,et non est in tempore hoc princeps et propheta et dux neque holocaustum neque sacrificium neque oblatio neque incensum neque locus primitiarum coram te
339That we may find thy mercy: nevertheless, in a contrite heart and humble spirit let us be accepted.ut possimus invenire misericordiam sed in anima contrita et spiritu humilitatis suscipiamur
340As in holocausts of rams, and bullocks, and as in thousands of fat lambs: so let our sacrifice be made in thy sight this day, that it may please thee: for there is no confusion to them that trust in thee.sicut in holocaustum arietum et taurorum et sicut in milibus agnorum pinguium sic fiat sacrificium nostrum in conspectu tuo hodie ut placeat tibi quoniam non est confusio confidentibus in te
341And now we follow thee with all our heart, and we fear thee, and seek thy face.et nunc sequimur in toto corde et timemus te et quaerimus faciem tuam
342Put us not to confusion, but deal with us according to thy meekness, and according to the multitude of thy mercies.ne confundas nos sec fac nobiscum iuxta mansuetudinem tuam et secundum multitudinem misericordiae tuae
343And deliver us, according to thy wonderful works, and give glory to thy name, O Lord:et erue nos in mirabilibus tuis et da gloriam nomini tuo Domine
344And let all them be confounded that shew evils to thy servants, let them be confounded in all thy might, and let their strength be broken:et confundantur omnes qui ostendunt servis tuis confundantur in omni potentia et robur eorum conteratur
345And let them know that thou art the Lord, the only God, and glorious over all the world.sciant quia tu Dominus Deus solus et gloriosus super orbem terrarum
346Now the king's servants that had cast them in, ceased not to heat the furnace with brimstone and tow, and pitch, and dry sticks,et non cessabant qui inmiserant eos ministri regis succendere fornacem naptha et stuppa et pice et malleolis
347And the flame mounted up above the furnace nine and forth cubits:et effundebatur flamma super fornacem cubitis quadraginta novem
348And it broke forth, and burnt such of the Chaldeans as it found near the furnace.et erupit et incendit quos repperit iuxta fornacem de Chaldeis
349But the angel of the Lord went down with Azarias and his companions into the furnace: and he drove the flame of the fire out of the furnace,angelus autem descendit cum Azaria et sociis eius in fornacem et excussit flammam ignis de fornace
350And made the midst of the furnace like the blowing of a wind bringing dew, and the fire touched them not at all, nor troubled them, nor did them any harm.et fecit medium fornacis quasi ventum roris flantem et non tetigit eos omnino ignis neque contristavit nec quicquam molestiae intulit
351Then these three, as with one mouth, praised and glorified and blessed God, in the furnace, saying:tunc tres quasi ex uno ore laudabant et glorificabant et benedicebant Deo in fornace dicentes
352Blessed art thou, O Lord, the God of our fathers; and worthy to be praised, and glorified, and exalted above all for ever: and blessed is the holy name of thy glory: and worthy to be praised and exalted above all, in all ages.benedictus es Domine Deus patrum nostrorum et laudabilis et superexaltatus in saecula et benedictum nomen gloriae tuae sanctum et laudabile et superexaltatum in omnibus saeculis
353Blessed art thou in the holy temple of thy glory: and exceedingly to be praised and exalted above all for ever.benedictus es in templo sancto gloriae tuae et superlaudabilis et supergloriosus in saecula
354Blessed art thou in the throne of they kingdom: praise and exalt him above all for ever.benedictus es in throno regni tue et superlaudabilis et superexaltatus in saecula
355Blessed art thou that beholdest the depths, and sittest upon the cherubims: and worthy to be praised and exalted above all for ever.benedictus es qui intueris abyssos et sedes super cherubin et laudabilis et superexaltatus in saecula
356Blessed art thou in the firmament of heaven: and worthy of praise, and glorious for ever.benedictus es in firmamento caeli et laudabilis et gloriosus in saecula

391Then Nabuchodonosor, the king, was astonished, and rose up in haste, and said to his nobles: Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered the king, and said: True, O king.tunc Nabuchodonosor rex obstipuit et surrexit propere et ait optimatibus suis nonne tres viros misimus in medio ignis conpeditos qui respondentes dixerunt regi vere rex
392He answered, and said: Behold, I see four men loose, and walking in the midst of the fire, and there is no hurt in them, and the form of the fourth is like the son of God.respondit et ait ecce ego video viros quattuor solutos et ambulantes in medio ignis et nihil corruptionis in eis est et species quarti similis filio Dei
393Then Nabuchodonosor came to the door of the burning fiery furnace, and said: Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, ye servants of the most high God, go ye forth, and come. And immediately Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, went out from the midst of the fire.tunc accessit Nabuchodonosor ad ostium fornacis ignis ardentis et ait Sedrac Misac et Abdenago servi Dei excelsi egredimini et venite statimque egressi sunt Sedrac Misac et Abdenago de medio ignis
394And the nobles, and the magistrates, and the judges, and the great men of the king, being gathered together, considered these men, that the fire had no power on their bodies, and that not a hair of their head had been singed, nor their garments altered, nor the smell of the fire had passed on them.et congregati satrapae magistratus et iudices et potentes regis contemplabantur viros illos quoniam nihil potestatis habuisset ignis in corporibus eorum et capillus capitis eorum non esset adustus et sarabara eorum non fuissent in mutata et odor ignis non transisset per eos
395Then Nabuchodonosor breaking forth, said: Blessed be the God of them, to wit, of Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that believed in him: and they changed the king's word, and delivered up their bodies, that they might not serve nor adore any god except their own God.et erumpens Nabuchodonosor ait benedictus Deus eorum Sedrac videlicet Misac et Abdenago qui misit angelum suum et eruit servos suos quia crediderunt in eo et verbum regis inmutaverunt et tradiderunt corpora sua ne servirent et ne adorarent omnem deum excepto Deo suo
396By me, therefore, this decree is made: That every people, tribe, and tongue, which shall speak blasphemy against the God of Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, shall be destroyed, and their houses laid waste: for there is no other God that can save in this manner.a me ergo positum est hoc decretum ut omnis populus et tribus et lingua quaecumque locuta fuerit blasphemiam contra Deum Sedrac Misac et Abdenago dispereat et domus eius vastetur neque enim est Deus alius qui possit ita salvare
397Then the king promoted Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago, in the province of Babylon.tunc rex promovit Sedrac Misac et Abdenago in provincia Babylonis
398Nabuchodonosor, the king, to all peoples, nations, and tongues, that dwell in all the earth, peace be multiplied unto you.Nabuchodonosor rex omnibus populis gentibus et linguis quae habitant in universa terra pax vobis multiplicetur
399The most high God hath wrought signs and wonders towards me. It hath seemed good to me, therefore, to publishsigna et mirabilia fecit apud me Deus excelsus placuit ergo mihi praedicare
3100His signs, because they are great: and his wonders, because they are mighty: and his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his power to all generations.signa eius quia magna sunt et mirabilia eius quia fortia et regnum eius regnum sempiternum et potestas eius in generatione et generationem
