Zechariah

Zechariah 1

1 In mense octavo, in anno secundo Darii regis, factum est verbum Domini ad Zachariam filium Barachiæ filii Addo prophetam, dicens : In the eighth month, in the second year of king Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zacharias the son of Barachias, the son of Addo, the prophet, saying:
2 Iratus est Dominus super patres vestros iracundia. The Lord hath been exceeding angry with your fathers.
3 Et dices ad eos : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Convertimini ad me, ait Dominus exercituum, et convertar ad vos, dicit Dominus exercituum. And thou shalt say to them: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Turn ye to me, saith the Lord of hosts: and I will turn to you, saith the Lord of hosts.
4 Ne sitis sicut patres vestri, ad quos clamabant prophetæ priores, dicentes : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Convertimini de viis vestris malis, et de cogitationibus vestris pessimis : et non audierunt, neque attenderunt ad me, dicit Dominus. Be not as your fathers, to whom the former prophets have cried, saying: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Turn ye from your evil ways, and from your wicked thoughts: but they did not give ear, neither did they hearken to me, saith the Lord.
5 Patres vestri, ubi sunt ? et prophetæ numquid in sempiternum vivent ? Your fathers, where are they? and the prophets, shall they live always?
6 Verumtamen verba mea, et legitima mea, quæ mandavi servis meis prophetis, numquid non comprehenderunt patres vestros, et conversi sunt, et dixerunt : Sicut cogitavit Dominus exercituum facere nobis secundum vias nostras, et secundum adinventiones nostras, fecit nobis ? But yet my words, and my ordinances, which I gave in charge to my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers, and they returned, and said: As the Lord of hosts thought to do to us according to our ways, and according to our devices, so he hath done to us.
7 In die vigesima et quarta undecimi mensis Sabath, in anno secundo Darii, factum est verbum Domini ad Zachariam filium Barachiæ filii Addo prophetam, dicens : In the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month which is called Sabath, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zacharias the son of Barachias, the son of Addo, the prophet, saying:
8 Vidi per noctem, et ecce vir ascendens super equum rufum, et ipse stabat inter myrteta, quæ erant in profundo, et post eum equi rufi, varii, et albi. I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees, that were in the bottom: and behind him were horses, red, speckled, and white.
9 Et dixi : Quid sunt isti, domine mi ? Et dixit ad me angelus qui loquebatur in me : Ego ostendam tibi quid sint hæc. And I said: What are these, my Lord ? and the angel that spoke in me, said to me: I will shew thee what these are:
10 Et respondit vir qui stabat inter myrteta, et dixit : Isti sunt quos misit Dominus ut perambulent terram. And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered, and said: These are they, whom the Lord hath sent to walk through the earth.
11 Et responderunt angelo Domini, qui stabat inter myrteta, et dixerunt : Perambulavimus terram, et ecce omnis terra habitatur, et quiescit. And they answered the angel of the Lord, that stood among the myrtle trees, and said: We have walked through the earth, and behold all the earth is inhabited, and is at rest.
12 Et respondit angelus Domini, et dixit : Domine exercituum, usquequo tu non misereberis Jerusalem, et urbium Juda, quibus iratus es ? iste jam septuagesimus annus est. And the angel of the Lord answered, and said: O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem, and on the cities of Juda, with which thou hast been angry? this is now the seventieth year.
13 Et respondit Dominus angelo qui loquebatur in me verba bona, verba consolatoria. And the Lord answered the angel, that spoke in me, good words, comfortable words.
14 Et dixit ad me angelus qui loquebatur in me : Clama, dicens : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Zelatus sum Jerusalem et Sion zelo magno, And the angel that spoke in me, said to me: Cry thou, saying: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I am zealous for Jerusalem, and Sion with a great zeal.
15 et ira magna ego irascor super gentes opulentas, quia ego iratus sum parum, ipsi vero adjuverunt in malum. And I am angry with a great anger with the wealthy nations: for I was angry a little, but they helped forward the evil.
16 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus : Revertar ad Jerusalem in misericordiis, et domus mea ædificabitur in ea, ait Dominus exercituum, et perpendiculum extendetur super Jerusalem. Therefore thus saith the Lord: I will return to Jerusalem in mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the Lord of hosts: and the building line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
17 Adhuc clama, dicens : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Adhuc affluent civitates meæ bonis, et consolabitur adhuc Dominus Sion, et eliget adhuc Jerusalem. Cry yet, saying: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: My cities shall yet flow with good things : and the Lord will yet comfort Sion, and he will yet choose Jerusalem.
18 Et levavi oculos meos, et vidi, et ecce quatuor cornua. And I lifted up my eyes, and saw: and behold four horns.
19 Et dixi ad angelum qui loquebatur in me : Quid sunt hæc ? Et dixit ad me : Hæc sunt cornua quæ ventilaverunt Judam, et Israël, et Jerusalem. And I said to the angel that spoke to me: What are these? And he said to me: These are the horns that have scattered Juda, and Israel, and Jerusalem.
20 Et ostendit mihi Dominus quatuor fabros. And the Lord shewed me four smiths.
21 Et dixi : Quid isti veniunt facere ? Qui ait, dicens : Hæc sunt cornua quæ ventilaverunt Judam per singulos viros, et nemo eorum levavit caput suum : et venerunt isti deterrere ea, ut dejiciant cornua gentium, quæ levaverunt cornu super terram Juda ut dispergerent eam. And I said: What come these to do? and he spoke, saying: These are the horns which have scattered Juda every man apart, and none of them lifted up his head: and these are come to fray them, to cast down the horns of the nations, that have lifted up the horn upon the land of Juda to scatter it.

Zechariah 2

1 Et levavi oculos meos, et vidi, et ecce vir, et in manu ejus funiculus mensorum. And I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold a man, with a measuring line in his hand.
2 Et dixi : Quo tu vadis ? Et dixit ad me : Ut metiar Jerusalem, et videam quanta sit latitudo ejus, et quanta longitudo ejus. And I said: Whither goest thou? and he said to me: To measure Jerusalem, and to see how great is the breadth thereof, and how great the length thereof.
3 Et ecce angelus qui loquebatur in me egrediebatur, et angelus alius egrediebatur in occursum ejus : And behold the angel that spoke in me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him.
4 et dixit ad eum : Curre, loquere ad puerum istum, dicens : Absque muro habitabitur Jerusalem, præ multitudine hominum et jumentorum in medio ejus. And he said to him: Run, speak to this young man, saying: Jerusalem shall be inhabited without walls, by reason of the multitude of men, and of the beasts in the midst thereof.
5 Et ego ero ei, ait Dominus, murus ignis in circuitu, et in gloria ero in medio ejus. And I will be to it, saith the Lord, a wall of fire round about: and I will be in glory in the midst thereof.
6 O, o, fugite de terra aquilonis, dicit Dominus, quoniam in quatuor ventos cæli dispersi vos, dicit Dominus. O, O flee ye out of the land of the north, saith the Lord, for I have scattered you into the four winds of heaven, saith the Lord.
7 O Sion ! fuge, quæ habitas apud filiam Babylonis : O Sion, flee, thou that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon:
8 quia hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Post gloriam misit me ad gentes quæ spoliaverunt vos : qui enim tetigerit vos, tangit pupillam oculi mei : For thus saith the Lord of hosts: After the glory he hath sent me to the nations that have robbed you: for he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of my eye:
9 quia ecce ego levo manum meam super eos, et erunt prædæ his qui serviebant sibi : et cognoscetis quia Dominus exercituum misit me. For behold I lift up my hand upon them, and they shall be a prey to those that served them: and you shall know that the Lord of hosts sent me.
10 Lauda et lætare, filia Sion, quia ecce ego venio, et habitabo in medio tui, ait Dominus. Sing praise, and rejoice, O daughter of Sion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee: saith the Lord.
11 Et applicabuntur gentes multæ ad Dominum in die illa, et erunt mihi in populum, et habitabo in medio tui : et scies quia Dominus exercituum misit me ad te. And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and they shall be my people, and I will dwell in the midst of thee: and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me to thee.
12 Et possidebit Dominus Judam partem suam in terra sanctificata, et eliget adhuc Jerusalem. And the Lord shall possess Juda his portion in the sanctified land: and he shall yet choose Jerusalem.
13 Sileat omnis caro a facie Domini, quia consurrexit de habitaculo sancto suo. Let all flesh be silent at the presence of the Lord: for he is risen up out of his .holy habitation.

Zechariah 3

1 Et ostendit mihi Dominus Jesum sacerdotem magnum, stantem coram angelo Domini : et Satan stabat a dextris ejus ut adversaretur ei. And the Lord shewed me Jesus the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord: and Satan stood on his right hand to be his adversary.
2 Et dixit Dominus ad Satan : Increpet Dominus in te, Satan ! et increpet Dominus in te, qui elegit Jerusalem ! numquid non iste torris est erutus de igne ? And the Lord said to Satan: The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan: and the Lord that chose Jerusalem rebuke thee: Is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
3 Et Jesus erat indutus vestibus sordidis, et stabat ante faciem angeli. And Jesus was clothed with filthy garments: and he stood before the face of the angel.
4 Qui respondit, et ait ad eos qui stabant coram se, dicens : Auferte vestimenta sordida ab eo. Et dixit ad eum : Ecce abstuli a te iniquitatem tuam, et indui te mutatoriis. Who answered, and said to them that stood before him, saying: Take away the filthy garments from him. And he said to him: Behold I have taken away thy iniquity, and have clothed thee with change of garments.
5 Et dixit : Ponite cidarim mundam super caput ejus. Et posuerunt cidarim mundam super caput ejus, et induerunt eum vestibus : et angelus Domini stabat. And he said: Put a clean mitre upon his head: and they put a clean mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments, and the angel of the Lord stood.
6 Et contestabatur angelus Domini Jesum, dicens : And the angel of the Lord protested to Jesus, saying:
7 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Si in viis meis ambulaveris, et custodiam meam custodieris, tu quoque judicabis domum meam, et custodies atria mea, et dabo tibi ambulantes de his qui nunc hic assistunt. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: If thou wilt walk in my ways, and Beep my charge, thou also shalt judge my house, and shalt keep my courts, and I will give thee some of them that are now present here to walk with thee.
8 Audi, Jesu sacerdos magne, tu et amici tui, qui habitant coram te, quia viri portendentes sunt : ecce enim ego adducam servum meum Orientem. Hear, O Jesus thou high priest, then and thy friends that dwell before thee, for they are portending men: for behold I WILL BRING MY SERVANT THE ORIENT.
9 Quia ecce lapis quem dedi coram Jesu : super lapidem unum septem oculi sunt : ecce ego cælabo sculpturam ejus, ait Dominus exercituum, et auferam iniquitatem terræ illius in die una. For behold the stone that I have laid before Jesus: upon one stone there are seven eyes: behold I will grave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts: and I will take away the iniquity of that land in one day.
10 In die illa, dicit Dominus exercituum, vocabit vir amicum suum subter vitem et subter ficum. In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, every man shell call his friend under the vine and under the fig tree.

Zechariah 4

1 Et reversus est angelus qui loquebatur in me, et suscitavit me quasi virum qui suscitatur de somno suo. And the angel that spoke in me came again: and he waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep.
2 Et dixit ad me : Quid tu vides ? Et dixi : Vidi, et ecce candelabrum aureum totum, et lampas ejus super caput ipsius, et septem lucernæ ejus super illud, et septem infusoria lucernis quæ erant super caput ejus. And he said to me: What seest thou? And I said: I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, and its lamp upon the top of it: and the seven lights thereof upon it: and seven funnels for the lights that were upon the top thereof.
3 Et duæ olivæ super illud : una a dextris lampadis, et una a sinistris ejus. And two olive trees over it: one upon the right side of the lamp, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4 Et respondi, et aio ad angelum qui loquebatur in me, dicens : Quid sunt hæc, domine mi ? And I answered, and said to the angel that spoke in me, saying: What are these things, my lord?
5 Et respondit angelus qui loquebatur in me, et dixit ad me : Numquid nescis quid sunt hæc ? Et dixi : Non, domine mi. And the angel that spoke in me answered, and said to me: Knowest thou not what these things are? And I said: No, my lord.
6 Et respondit, et ait ad me, dicens : Hoc est verbum Domini ad Zorobabel, dicens : Non in exercitu, nec in robore, sed in spiritu meo, dicit Dominus exercituum. And he answered, and spoke to me, saying: This is the word of the Lord to Zorobabel, saying: Not with an army, nor by might, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
7 Quis tu, mons magne, coram Zorobabel ? In planum : et educet lapidem primarium, et exæquabit gratiam gratiæ ejus. Who art thou, O great mountain, before Zorobabel? thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring out the chief stone, and shall give equal grace to the grace thereof.
8 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens : And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
9 Manus Zorobabel fundaverunt domum istam, et manus ejus perficient eam : et scietis quia Dominus exercituum misit me ad vos. The hands of Zorobabel have laid the foundations of this house, and his hands shall finish it: and you shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me to you.
10 Quis enim despexit dies parvos ? Et lætabuntur, et videbunt lapidem stantem in manu Zorobabel. Septem isti oculi sunt Domini, qui discurrunt in universam terram. For who hath despised little days? and they shall rejoice, and shall see the tin plummet in the hand of Zorobabel. These are the seven eyes of the Lord, that run to and fro through the whole earth.
11 Et respondi, et dixi ad eum : Quid sunt duæ olivæ istæ, ad dexteram candelabri, et ad sinistram ejus ? And I answered, and said to him: What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick, and upon the left side thereof?
12 Et respondi secundo, et dixi ad eum : Quid sunt duæ spicæ olivarum quæ sunt juxta duo rostra aurea in quibus sunt suffusoria ex auro ? And I answered again, and said to him: What are the two olive branches, that are by the two golden beaks, in which are the funnels of gold?
13 Et ait ad me, dicens : Numquid nescis quid sunt hæc ? Et dixi : Non, domine mi. And he spoke to me, saying: Knowest thou not what these are? And I said: No, my lord.
14 Et dixit : Isti sunt duo filii olei, qui assistunt Dominatori universæ terræ. And he said: These are two sons of oil who stand before the Lord of the whole earth.

Zechariah 5

1 Et conversus sum, et levavi oculos meos, et vidi, et ecce volumen volans. And I turned and lifted up my eyes: and I saw, and behold a volume flying.
2 Et dixit ad me : Quid tu vides ? Et dixi : Ego video volumen volans : longitudo ejus viginti cubitorum, et latitudo ejus decem cubitorum. And he said to me: What seest thou? And I said: I see a volume flying: the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
3 Et dixit ad me : Hæc est maledictio quæ egreditur super faciem omnis terræ : quia omnis fur, sicut ibi scriptum est, judicabitur, et omnis jurans ex hoc similiter judicabitur. And he said to me: This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the earth: for every thief shall be judged as is there written: and every one that sweareth in like manner shall be judged by it.
4 Educam illud, dicit Dominus exercituum : et veniet ad domum furis, et ad domum jurantis in nomine meo mendaciter : et commorabitur in medio domus ejus, et consumet eam, et ligna ejus, et lapides ejus. I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts: and it shall come to the house of the thief, and to the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it, with the timber thereof, and the stones thereof.
5 Et egressus est angelus qui loquebatur in me, et dixit ad me : Leva oculos tuos, et vide quid est hoc quod egreditur. And the angel went forth that spoke in me, and he said to me: Lift up thy eyes, and see what this is, that goeth forth.
6 Et dixi : Quidnam est ? Et ait : Hæc est amphora egrediens. Et dixit : Hæc est oculus eorum in universa terra. And I said: What is it? And he said: This is a vessel going forth. And he said: This is their eye in all the earth.
7 Et ecce talentum plumbi portabatur, et ecce mulier una sedens in medio amphoræ. And behold a talent of lead was carried, and behold a woman sitting in the midst of the vessel.
8 Et dixit : Hæc est impietas. Et projecit eam in medio amphoræ, et misit massam plumbeam in os ejus. And he said: This is wickedness. And he cast her into the midst of the vessel, and cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
9 Et levavi oculos meos, et vidi : et ecce duæ mulieres egredientes : et spiritus in alis earum, et habebant alas quasi alas milvi, et levaverunt amphoram inter terram et cælum. And I lifted up my eyes and looked: and behold there came out two women, and wind was in their wings, and they had wings like the wings of a kite: and they lifted up the vessel between the earth and the heaven.
10 Et dixi ad angelum qui loquebatur in me : Quo istæ deferunt amphoram ? And I said to the angel that spoke in me: Whither do these carry the vessel?
11 Et dixit ad me : Ut ædificetur ei domus in terra Sennaar, et stabiliatur, et ponatur ibi super basem suam. And he said to me: That a house may be built for it in the land of Sennaar, and that it may be established, and set there upon its own basis.

Zechariah 6

1 Et conversus sum, et levavi oculos meos, et vidi : et ecce quatuor quadrigæ egredientes de medio duorum montium : et montes, montes ærei. And I turned, and lifted up my eyes, and saw: and behold four chariots came out from the midst of two mountains: and the mountains were mountains of brass.
2 In quadriga prima equi rufi, et in quadriga secunda equi nigri, In the first chariot were red horses, and in the second chariot black horses.
3 et in quadriga tertia equi albi, et in quadriga quarta equi varii et fortes. And in the third chariot white horses, and in the fourth chariot grisled horses, and strong ones.
4 Et respondi, et dixi ad angelum qui loquebatur in me : Quid sunt hæc, domine mi ? And I answered, and said to the an- gel that spoke in me: What are these, my lord?
5 Et respondit angelus, et ait ad me : Isti sunt quatuor venti cæli, qui egrediuntur ut stent coram Dominatore omnis terræ. And the angel answered, and said to me: These are the four winds of the heaven, which go forth to stand before the Lord of all the earth.
6 In qua erant equi nigri, egrediebantur in terram aquilonis : et albi egressi sunt post eos, et varii egressi sunt ad terram austri. That in which were the black horses went forth into the land of the north, and the white went forth after them: and the grisled went forth to the land of the south.
7 Qui autem erant robustissimi, exierunt, et quærebant ire et discurrere per omnem terram. Et dixit : Ite, perambulate terram : et perambulaverunt terram. And they that were most strong, went out, and sought to go, and to run to and fro through all the earth. And he said: Go, walk throughout the earth : and they walked throughout the earth.
8 Et vocavit me, et locutus est ad me, dicens : Ecce qui egrediuntur in terram aquilonis, requiescere fecerunt spiritum meum in terra aquilonis. And he called me, and spoke to me, saying: Behold they that go forth into the land of the north, have quieted my spirit in the land of the north.
9 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens : And the word of the Lord came to me, saying :
10 Sume a transmigratione, ab Holdai, et a Tobia, et ab Idaia : et venies tu in die illa, et intrabis domum Josiæ filii Sophoniæ, qui venerunt de Babylone. Take of them of the captivity, of Holdai, and of Tobias, and of Idaias; thou shalt come in that day, and shalt go into the house of Josias, the son of Sophonias, who came out of Babylon.
11 Et sumes aurum et argentum, et facies coronas, et pones in capite Jesu filii Josedec, sacerdotis magni : And thou shalt take gold and silver: and shalt make crowns, and thou shalt set them on the head of Jesus the son of Josedec, the high priest.
12 et loqueris ad eum, dicens : Hæc ait Dominus exercituum, dicens : Ecce vir, Oriens nomen ejus, et subter eum orietur, et ædificabit templum Domino. And thou shalt speak to him, saying: Thus saith the Lord of hosts, saying: BEHOLD A MAN, THE ORIENT IS HIS NAME: and under him shall he spring up, and shall build a temple to the Lord.
13 Et ipse exstruet templum Domino : et ipse portabit gloriam, et sedebit, et dominabitur super solio suo : et erit sacerdos super solio suo, et consilium pacis erit inter illos duos. Yea, he shall build a temple to the Lord: and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit, and rule upon his throne: and he shall be a priest upon his throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
14 Et coronæ erunt Helem, et Tobiæ, et Idaiæ, et Hem filio Sophoniæ, memoriale in templo Domini. And the crowns shall be to Helem, and Tobias, and Idaias, and to Hem, the son of Sophonias, a memorial in the temple of the Lord.
15 Et qui procul sunt, venient, et ædificabunt in templo Domini : et scietis quia Dominus exercituum misit me ad vos. Erit autem hoc, si auditu audieritis vocem Domini Dei vestri. And they that are far off, shall come and shall build in the temple of the Lord: and you shall know that the Lord of hosts sent me to you. But this shall come to pass, if hearing you will hear the voice of the Lord your God.

Zechariah 7

1 Et factum est in anno quarto Darii regis, factum est verbum Domini ad Zachariam, in quarta mensis noni, qui est Casleu. And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of the Lord came to Zacharias, in the fourth day of the ninth month, which is Casleu.
2 Et miserunt ad domum Dei Sarasar et Rogommelech, et viri qui erant cum eo, ad deprecandam faciem Domini : When Sarasar, and Rogommelech, and the men that were with him, sent to the house of God, to entreat the face of the Lord:
3 ut dicerent sacerdotibus domus Domini exercituum, et prophetis, loquentes : Numquid flendum est mihi in quinto mense, vel sanctificare me debeo, sicut jam feci multis annis ? To speak to the priests of the house of the Lord of hosts, and to the prophets, saying: Must I weep in the fifth month, or must I sanctify myself as I have now done for many years?
4 Et factum est verbum Domini exercituum ad me, dicens : And the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying:
5 Loquere ad omnem populum terræ, et ad sacerdotes, dicens : Cum jejunaretis, et plangeretis in quinto et septimo per hos septuaginta annos, numquid jejunium jejunastis mihi ? Speak to all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying: When you fasted, and mourned in the fifth and the seventh month for these seventy years: did you keep a fast unto me?
6 et cum comedistis et bibistis, numquid non vobis comedistis et vobismetipsis bibistis ? And when you did eat and drink, did you not eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?
7 numquid non sunt verba quæ locutus est Dominus in manu prophetarum priorum, cum adhuc Jerusalem habitaretur ut esset opulenta, ipsa et urbes in circuitu ejus, et ad austrum, et in campestribus habitaretur ? Are not these the words which the Lord spoke by the hand of the former prophets, when Jerusalem as yet was inhabited, and was wealthy, both itself and the cities round about it, and there were inhabitants towards the south, and in the plain?
8 Et factum est verbum Domini ad Zachariam, dicens : And the word of the Lord came to Zacharias, saying:
9 Hæc ait Dominus exercituum, dicens : Judicium verum judicate, et misericordiam et miserationes facite, unusquisque cum fratre suo. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, saying: Judge ye true judgment, and shew ye mercy and compassion every man to his brother.
10 Et viduam, et pupillum, et advenam, et pauperem nolite calumniari : et malum vir fratri suo non cogitet in corde suo. And oppress not the widow, and the fatherless, and the stranger, and the poor: and let not a man devise evil in his heart against his brother.
11 Et noluerunt attendere, et averterunt scapulam recedentem, et aures suas aggravaverunt ne audirent. But they would not hearken, and they turned away the shoulder to depart: and they stopped their ears, not to hear.
12 Et cor suum posuerunt ut adamantem, ne audirent legem, et verba quæ misit Dominus exercituum in spiritu suo per manum prophetarum priorum : et facta est indignatio magna a Domino exercituum. And they made their heart as the adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts sent in his spirit by the hand of the former prophets: so a great indignation came from the Lord of hosts.
13 Et factum est sicut locutus est, et non audierunt : sic clamabunt et non exaudiam, dicit Dominus exercituum. And it came to pass that as he spoke, and they heard not: so shall they cry, and I will not hear, saith the Lord of hosts.
14 Et dispersi eos per omnia regna quæ nesciunt : et terra desolata est ab eis, eo quod non esset transiens et revertens : et posuerunt terram desiderabilem in desertum. And I dispersed them throughout all kingdoms, which they know not: and the land was left desolate behind them, so that no man passed through or returned: and they changed the delightful land into a wilderness.

Zechariah 8

1 Et factum est verbum Domini exercituum, dicens : And the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying:
2 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Zelatus sum Sion zelo magno, et indignatione magna zelatus sum eam. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I have been jealous for Sion with a great jealousy, and with a great indignation have I been jealous for her.
3 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Reversus sum ad Sion, et habitabo in medio Jerusalem : et vocabitur Jerusalem civitas veritatis, et mons Domini exercituum mons sanctificatus. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I am returned to Sion, and I will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called The city of truth, and the mountain of the Lord of hosts, The sanctified mountain.
4 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Adhuc habitabunt senes et anus in plateis Jerusalem, et viri baculus in manu ejus præ multitudine dierum. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem: and every man with his staff in his hand through multitude of days.
5 Et plateæ civitatis complebuntur infantibus et puellis, ludentibus in plateis ejus. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls, playing in the streets thereof.
6 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Si videbitur difficile in oculis reliquiarum populi hujus in diebus illis, numquid in oculis meis difficile erit ? dicit Dominus exercituum. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: If it seem hard in the eyes of the remnant of this people in those days: shall it be hard in my eyes, saith the Lord of hosts?
7 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Ecce ego salvabo populum meum de terra orientis et de terra occasus solis. Thus saith the Lord of hosts : Behold I will save my people from the land of the east, and from the land of the going down of the sun.
8 Et adducam eos, et habitabunt in medio Jerusalem : et erunt mihi in populum, et ego ero eis in Deum, in veritate et in justitia. And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God in truth and in justice.
9 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Confortentur manus vestræ, qui auditis in his diebus sermones istos per os prophetarum, in die qua fundata est domus Domini exercituum, ut templum ædificaretur. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Let your hands be strengthened, you that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, in the day that the house of the Lord of hosts was founded, that the temple might be built.
10 Siquidem ante dies illos merces hominum non erat, nec merces jumentorum erat : neque introëunti, neque exeunti erat pax præ tribulatione : et dimisi omnes homines, unumquemque contra proximum suum. For before those days there was no hire for men, neither was there hire for beasts, neither was there peace to him that came in, nor to him that went out, because of the tribulation: and I let all men go every one against his neighbour.
11 Nunc autem non juxta dies priores ego faciam reliquiis populi hujus, dicit Dominus exercituum, But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people according to the former days, saith the Lord of hosts.
12 sed semen pacis erit : vinea dabit fructum suum, et terra dabit germen suum, et cæli dabunt rorem suum : et possidere faciam reliquias populi hujus universa hæc. But there shall be the seed of peace: the vine shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew: and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
13 Et erit : sicut eratis maledictio in gentibus, domus Juda et domus Israël, sic salvabo vos, et eritis benedictio. Nolite timere ; confortentur manus vestræ. And it shall come to pass, that as you were a curse among the Gentiles, O house of Juda, and house of Israel: so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing: fear not, let your hands be strengthened.
14 Quia hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Sicut cogitavi ut affligerem vos, cum ad iracundiam provocassent patres vestri me, dicit Dominus, For thus saith the Lord of hosts: As I purposed to afflict you, when your fathers had provoked me to wrath, saith the Lord,
15 et non sum misertus : sic conversus cogitavi, in diebus istis, ut benefaciam domui Juda et Jerusalem. Nolite timere. And I had no mercy: so turning again I have thought in these days to do good to the house of Juda, and Jerusalem: fear not.
16 Hæc sunt ergo verba quæ facietis : loquimini veritatem unusquisque cum proximo suo : veritatem et judicium pacis judicate in portis vestris. These then are the things, which you shall do: Speak ye truth every one to his neighbour: judge ye truth and judgment of peace in your gates.
17 Et unusquisque malum contra amicum suum ne cogitetis in cordibus vestris, et juramentum mendax ne diligatis : omnia enim hæc sunt quæ odi, dicit Dominus. And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his friend: and love not a false oath: for all these are the things that I hate, saith the Lord.
18 Et factum est verbum Domini exercituum ad me, dicens : And the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying:
19 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Jejunium quarti, et jejunium quinti, et jejunium septimi, et jejunium decimi erit domui Juda in gaudium et lætitiam et in solemnitates præclaras. Veritatem tantum et pacem diligite. Thus saith the Lord of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth shall be to the house of Juda, joy, and gladness, and great solemnities: only love ye truth and peace.
20 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, usquequo veniant populi et habitent in civitatibus multis : Thus saith the Lord of hosts, until people come, and dwell in many cities,
21 et vadant habitatores, unus ad alterum, dicentes : Eamus, et deprecemur faciem Domini, et quæramus Dominum exercituum : vadam etiam ego. And the inhabitants go one to another, saying: Let us go, and entreat the face of the Lord, and let us seek the Lord of hosts: I also will go.
22 Et venient populi multi, et gentes robustæ, ad quærendum Dominum exercituum in Jerusalem, et deprecandam faciem Domini. And many peoples, and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to entreat the face of the Lord.
23 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : In diebus illis, in quibus apprehendent decem homines ex omnibus linguis gentium, et apprehendent fimbriam viri Judæi, dicentes : Ibimus vobiscum : audivimus enim quoniam Deus vobiscum est. Thus saith the Lord of hosts : In those days, wherein ten men of all languages of the Gentiles shall take hold, and shall hold fast the shirt of one that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

Zechariah 9

1 Onus verbi Domini in terra Hadrach et Damasci requiei ejus, quia Domini est oculus hominis et omnium tribuum Israël. The burden of the word of the Lord in the land of Hadrach, and of Damascus the rest thereof: for the eye of man, and of all the tribes of Israel is the Lord’s.
2 Emath quoque in terminis ejus, et Tyrus, et Sidon : assumpserunt quippe sibi sapientiam valde. Emath also in the borders thereof, and Tyre, and Sidon: for they have taken to themselves to be exceeding wise.
3 Et ædificavit Tyrus munitionem suam, et coacervavit argentum quasi humum, et aurum ut lutum platearum. And Tyre hath built herself a strong hold, and heaped together silver as earth, and gold as the mire of the streets.
4 Ecce Dominus possidebit eam : et percutiet in mari fortitudinem ejus, et hæc igni devorabitur. Behold the Lord shall possess her, and shall strike her strength in the sea, and she shall be devoured with fire.
5 Videbit Ascalon, et timebit, et Gaza, et dolebit nimis, et Accaron, quoniam confusa est spes ejus : et peribit rex de Gaza, et Ascalon non habitabitur. Ascalon shall see, and shall fear, and Gaza, and shall be very sorrowful: and Accaron, because her hope is confounded : and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ascalon shall not be inhabited.
6 Et sedebit separator in Azoto, et disperdam superbiam Philisthinorum. And the divider shall sit in Azotus, and I will destroy the pride of the Philistines.
7 Et auferam sanguinem ejus de ore ejus, et abominationes ejus de medio dentium ejus : et relinquetur etiam ipse Deo nostro, et erit quasi dux in Juda, et Accaron quasi Jebusæus. And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: and even he shall be left to our God, and he shall be as a governor in Juda, and Accaron as a Jebusite.
8 Et circumdabo domum meam ex his qui militant mihi euntes et revertentes : et non transibit super eos ultra exactor, quia nunc vidi in oculis meis. And I will encompass my house with them that serve me in war, going and returning, and the oppressor shall no more pass through them: for now I have seen with my eyes.
9 Exsulta satis, filia Sion ; jubila, filia Jerusalem : ecce rex tuus veniet tibi justus, et salvator : ipse pauper, et ascendens super asinam et super pullum filium asinæ. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Sion, shout for joy, O daughter of Jerusalem: BEHOLD THY KING will come to thee, the just and saviour: he is poor, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10 Et disperdam quadrigam ex Ephraim, et equum de Jerusalem, et dissipabitur arcus belli : et loquetur pacem gentibus, et potestas ejus a mari usque ad mare, et a fluminibus usque ad fines terræ. And I will destroy the chariot out of Ephraim, and the horse out of Jerusalem, and the bow for war shall be broken: and he shall speak peace to the Gentiles, and his power shall be from sea to sea, and from the rivers even to the end of the earth.
11 Tu quoque in sanguine testamenti tui emisisti vinctos tuos de lacu in quo non est aqua. Thou also by the blood of thy testament hast sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit, wherein is no water.
12 Convertimini ad munitionem, vincti spei : hodie quoque annuntians duplicia reddam tibi. Return to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope, I will render thee double at, I declare to day.
13 Quoniam extendi mihi Judam quasi arcum : implevi Ephraim : et suscitabo filios tuos, Sion, super filios tuos, Græcia : et ponam te quasi gladium fortium. Because I have bent Juda for me as a bow, I have filled Ephraim: and I will raise up thy sons, O Sion, above thy sons, O Greece, and I will make thee as the sword of the mighty.
14 Et Dominus Deus super eos videbitur, et exibit ut fulgur jaculum ejus : et Dominus Deus in tuba canet, et vadet in turbine austri. And the Lord God shall be seen over them, and his dart shall go forth as lightning: and the Lord God will sound the trumpet, and go in the whirlwind of the south.
15 Dominus exercituum proteget eos : et devorabunt, et subjicient lapidibus fundæ : et bibentes inebriabuntur quasi a vino, et replebuntur ut phialæ, et quasi cornua altaris. The Lord of hosts will protect them: and they shall devour, and subdue with the stones of the sling: and drinking they shall be inebriated as it were with wine, and they shall be filled as bowls, and as the horns of the altar.
16 Et salvabit eos Dominus Deus eorum in die illa, ut gregem populi sui, quia lapides sancti elevabuntur super terram ejus. And the Lord their God will save them in that day, as the dock of his people: for holy stones shall be lifted up over his land.
17 Quid enim bonum ejus est, et quid pulchrum ejus, nisi frumentum electorum, et vinum germinans virgines ? For what is the good thing of him, and what is his beautiful thing, but the corn of the elect, and wine springing forth virgins?

Zechariah 10

1 Petite a Domino pluviam in tempore serotino, et Dominus faciet nives : et pluviam imbris dabit eis, singulis herbam in agro. Ask ye of the Lord rain in the latter season, and the Lord will make snows, and will give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.
2 Quia simulacra locuta sunt inutile, et divini viderunt mendacium : et somniatores locuti sunt frustra, vane consolabantur : idcirco abducti sunt quasi grex : affligentur, quia non est eis pastor. For the idols have spoken what was unprofitable, and the diviners have seen a lie, and the dreamers have spoken vanity: they comforted in vain: therefore they were led away as a dock: they shall be afflicted, because they have no shepherd.
3 Super pastores iratus est furor meus, et super hircos visitabo : quia visitavit Dominus exercituum gregem suum, domum Juda, et posuit eos quasi equum gloriæ suæ in bello. My wrath is kindled against the shepherds, and I will visit upon the buck goats: for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock, the house of Juda, and hath made them as the horse of his glory in the battle.
4 Ex ipso angelus, ex ipso paxillas, ex ipso arcus prælii, ex ipso egredietur omnis exactor simul. Out of him shall come forth the corner, out of him the pin, out of him the bow of battle, out of him every exacter together.
5 Et erunt quasi fortes conculcantes lutum viarum in prælio, et bellabunt, quia Dominus cum eis : et confundentur ascensores equorum. And they shall be as mighty men, treading under foot the mire of the ways in battle: and they shall fight, because the Lord is with them, and the riders of horses shall be confounded.
6 Et confortabo domum Juda, et domum Joseph salvabo : et convertam eos, quia miserebor eorum : et erunt sicut fuerunt quando non projeceram eos : ego enim Dominus Deus eorum, et exaudiam eos. And I will strengthen the house of Juda, and save the house of Joseph: and I will bring them back again, because I will have mercy on them: and they shall be as they were when I had cast them off, for I am the Lord their God, and will hear them.
7 Et erunt quasi fortes Ephraim, et lætabitur cor eorum quasi a vino : et filii eorum videbunt, et lætabuntur, et exsultabit cor eorum in Domino. And they shall be as the valiant men of Ephraim, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine: and their children shall see, and shall rejoice, and their heart shall be joyful in the Lord.
8 Sibilabo eis, et congregabo illos, quia redemi eos : et multiplicabo eos sicut ante fuerant multiplicati. I will whistle for them, and I will gather them together, because I have redeemed them: and I will multiply them as they were multiplied before.
9 Et seminabo eos in populis, et de longe recordabuntur mei : et vivent cum filiis suis, et revertentur. And I will sow them among peoples: and from afar they shall remember me: and they shall live with their children, and shall return.
10 Et reducam eos de terra Ægypti, et de Assyriis congregabo eos, et ad terram Galaad et Libani adducam eos, et non invenietur eis locus : And I will bring them back out of the land of Egypt, and will gather them from among the Assyrians: and will bring them to the land of Galaad, and Libanus, and place shall not be found for them.
11 et transibit in maris freto, et percutiet in mari fluctus, et confundentur omnia profunda fluminis : et humiliabitur superbia Assur, et sceptrum Ægypti recedet. And he shall pass over the strait of the sea, and shall strike the waves in the sea, and all the depths of the river shall be confounded, and the pride of Assyria shall be humbled, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart.
12 Confortabo eos in Domino, et in nomine ejus ambulabunt, dicit Dominus. I will strengthen them in the Lord, and they shall walk in his name, saith the Lord.

Zechariah 11

1 Aperi, Libane, portas tuas, et comedat ignis cedros tuas. Open thy gates, 0 Libanus, and let fire devour thy cedars.
2 Ulula, abies, quia cecidit cedrus, quoniam magnifici vastati sunt : ululate, quercus Basan, quoniam succisus est saltus munitus. Howl, thou fir tree, for the cedar is fallen, for the mighty are laid waste: howl, ye oaks of Basan, because the fenced forest is cut down.
3 Vox ululatus pastorum, quia vastata est magnificentia eorum : vox rugitus leonum, quoniam vastata est superbia Jordanis. The voice of the howling of the shepherds, because their glory is laid waste: the voice of the roaring of the lions, because the pride of the Jordan is spoiled.
4 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus meus : Pasce pecora occisionis, Thus saith the Lord my God: Feed the flock of the slaughter,
5 quæ qui possederant occidebant, et non dolebant, et vendebant ea, dicentes : Benedictus Dominus ! divites facti sumus : et pastores eorum non parcebant eis. Which they that possessed, slew, and repented not, and they sold them, saying: Blessed be the Lord, we are become rich: and their shepherds spared them not.
6 Et ego non parcam ultra super habitantes terram, dicit Dominus : ecce ego tradam homines, unumquemque in manu proximi sui, et in manu regis sui : et concident terram, et non eruam de manu eorum. And I will no more spare the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord: behold I will deliver the men, every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall destroy the land, and I will not deliver it out of their hand.
7 Et pascam pecus occisionis propter hoc, o pauperes gregis ! et assumpsi mihi duas virgas : unam vocavi Decorem, et alteram vocavi Funiculum : et pavi gregem. And I will feed the hock of slaughter for this, O ye poor of the dock. And I took unto me two rods, one I called Beauty, and the other I called a Cord, and I fed the flock.
8 Et succidi tres pastores in mense uno, et contracta est anima mea in eis, siquidem et anima eorum variavit in me. And I cut off three shepherds in one month, and my soul was straitened in their regard: for their soul also varied in my regard.
9 Et dixi : Non pascam vos : quod moritur, moriatur, et quod succiditur, succidatur : et reliqui devorent unusquisque carnem proximi sui. And I said: I will not feed you: that which dieth, let it die: and that which is cut off, let it be cut off: and let the rest devour every one the flesh of his neighbour.
10 Et tuli virgam meam quæ vocabatur Decus, et abscidi eam, ut irritum facerem fœdus meum quod percussi cum omnibus populis. And I took my rod that was called Beauty, and I cut it asunder to make void my covenant, which I had made with all people.
11 Et in irritum deductum est in die illa : et cognoverunt sic pauperes gregis, qui custodiunt mihi, quia verbum Domini est. And it was made void in that day: and so the poor of the flock that keep for me, understood that it is the word of the Lord.
12 Et dixi ad eos : Si bonum est in oculis vestris, afferte mercedem meam : et si non, quiescite. Et appenderunt mercedem meam triginta argenteos. And I said to them: If it be good in your eyes, bring hither my wages: and if not, be quiet. And they weighed for my wages thirty pieces of silver.
13 Et dixit Dominus ad me : Projice illud ad statuarium, decorum pretium quo appretiatus sum ab eis. Et tuli triginta argenteos, et projeci illos in domum Domini, ad statuarium. And the Lord said to me: Cast it to the statuary, a handsome price, that I was prized at by them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and I cast them into the house of the Lord to the statuary.
14 Et præcidi virgam meam secundam, quæ appellabatur Funiculus, ut dissolverem germanitatem inter Judam et Israël. And I cut off my second rod that was called a Cord, that I might break the brotherhood between Juda and Israel.
15 Et dixit Dominus ad me : Adhuc sunt tibi vasa pastoris stulti. And the Lord said to me: Take to thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.
16 Quia ecce ego suscitabo pastorem in terra, qui derelicta non visitabit, dispersum non quæret, et contritum non sanabit, et id quod stat non enutriet, et carnes pinguium comedet, et ungulas eorum dissolvet. For behold I will raise up a shepherd in the land, who shall not visit what is forsaken, nor seek what is scattered, nor heal what is broken, nor nourish that which standeth, and he shall eat the flesh of the fat ones, and break their hoofs.
17 O pastor, et idolum derelinquens gregem : gladius super brachium ejus, et super oculum dextrum ejus : brachium ejus ariditate siccabitur, et oculus dexter ejus tenebrescens obscurabitur. O shepherd, and idol, that forsaketh the flock: the sword upon his arm and upon his right eye: his arm shall quite wither away, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

Zechariah 12

1 Onus verbi Domini super Israël. Dicit Dominus extendens cælum, et fundans terram, et fingens spiritum hominis in eo : The burden of the word of the Lord upon Israel. Thus saith the Lord, who stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundations of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man in him :
2 Ecce ego ponam Jerusalem superliminare crapulæ omnibus populis in circuitu : sed et Juda erit in obsidione contra Jerusalem. Behold I will make Jerusalem a lintel of surfeiting to all the people round about: and Juda also shall be in the siege against Jerusalem.
3 Et erit : in die illa ponam Jerusalem lapidem oneris cunctis populis : omnes qui levabunt eam concisione lacerabuntur, et colligentur adversus eam omnia regna terræ. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone to all people: all that shall lift it up shall be rent and torn, and all the kingdoms of the earth shall be gathered together against her.
4 In die illa, dicit Dominus, percutiam omnem equum in stuporem, et ascensorem ejus in amentiam : et super domum Juda aperiam oculos meos, et omnem equum populorum percutiam cæcitate. In that day, saith the Lord, I will strike every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open my eyes upon the house of Juda, and will strike every horse of the nations with blindness.
5 Et dicent duces Juda in corde suo : Confortentur mihi habitatores Jerusalem in Domino exercituum, Deo eorum ! And the governors of Juda shall say in their heart: Let the inhabitants of Jerusalem be strengthened for me in the Lord of hosts, their God.
6 In die illa ponam duces Juda sicut caminum ignis in lignis, et sicut facem ignis in fœno : et devorabunt ad dexteram et ad sinistram omnes populos in circuitu, et habitabitur Jerusalem rursus in loco suo in Jerusalem. In that day I will make the governors of Juda like a furnace of fire amongst wood, and as a firebrand amongst hay: and they shall devour all the people round about, to the right hand, and to the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place in Jerusalem.
7 Et salvabit Dominus tabernacula Juda, sicut in principio, ut non magnifice glorietur domus David, et gloria habitantium Jerusalem contra Judam. And the Lord shall save the tabernacles of Juda, as in the beginning: that the house of David, and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, may not boast and magnify themselves against Juda.
8 In die illa proteget Dominus habitatores Jerusalem : et erit qui offenderit ex eis in die illa quasi David, et domus David quasi Dei, sicut angelus Domini in conspectu eorum. In that day shall the Lord protect the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and he that hath offended among them in that day shall be as David: and the house of David, as that of God, as an angel of the Lord in their sight.
9 Et erit in die illa : quæram conterere omnes gentes quæ veniunt contra Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10 Et effundam super domum David et super habitatores Jerusalem spiritum gratiæ et precum : et aspicient ad me quem confixerunt, et plangent eum planctu quasi super unigenitum, et dolebunt super eum, ut doleri solet in morte primogeniti. And I will pour out upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace, and of prayers: and they shall look upon me, whom they have pierced: and they shall mourn for him as one mourneth for an only son, and they shall grieve over him, as the manner is to grieve for the death of the firstborn.
11 In die illa, magnus erit planctus in Jerusalem, sicut planctus Adadremmon in campo Mageddon. In that day there shall be a great lamentation in Jerusalem like the lamentation of Adadremmon in the plain of Mageddon.
12 Et planget terra : familiæ et familiæ seorsum : familiæ domus David seorsum, et mulieres eorum seorsum : And the land shall mourn: families and families apart: the families of the house of David apart, and their women apart:
13 familiæ domus Nathan seorsum, et mulieres eorum seorsum : familiæ domus Levi seorsum, et mulieres eorum seorsum : familiæ Semei seorsum, et mulieres eorum seorsum : The families of the house of Nathan apart, and their women apart: the families of the house of Levi apart, and their women apart: the families of Semei apart, and their women apart.
14 omnes familiæ reliquæ, familiæ et familiæ seorsum, et mulieres eorum seorsum. All the rest of the families, families and families apart, and their women apart.

Zechariah 13

1 In die illa erit fons patens domui David et habitantibus Jerusalem, in ablutionem peccatoris et menstruatæ. In that day there shall be a fountain open to the house of David, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem: for the washing of the sinner, and of the unclean woman.
2 Et erit in die illa, dicit Dominus exercituum : disperdam nomina idolorum de terra, et non memorabuntur ultra : et pseudoprophetas, et spiritum immundum auferam de terra. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will destroy the names of idols out of the earth, and they shall be remembered no more: and I will take away the false prophets, and the unclean spirit out of the earth.
3 Et erit : cum prophetaverit quispiam ultra, dicent ei pater ejus et mater ejus, qui genuerunt eum : Non vives, quia mendacium locutus es in nomine Domini : et configent eum pater ejus et mater ejus, genitores ejus, cum prophetaverit. And it shall come to pass, that when any man shall prophesy any more, his father and his mother that brought him into the world, shall say to him: Thou shalt not live: because thou best spoken a lie in the name of the Lord. And his father, and his mother, his parents, shall thrust him through, when he shall prophesy.
4 Et erit : in die illa confundentur prophetæ, unusquisque ex visione sua cum prophetaverit : nec operientur pallio saccino, ut mentiantur : And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be confounded, every one by his own vision, when he shall prophesy, neither shall they be clad with a garment of sackcloth, to deceive :
5 sed dicet : Non sum propheta : homo agricola ego sum, quoniam Adam exemplum meum ab adolescentia mea. But he shall say: I am no prophet, I am a husbandman: for Adam is my ex- ample from my youth.
6 Et dicetur ei : Quid sunt plagæ istæ in medio manuum tuarum ? Et dicet : His plagatus sum in domo eorum qui diligebant me. And they shall say to him: What are these wounds in the midst of thy hands? And he shall say: With these I was wounded in the house of them that loved me.
7 Framea, suscitare super pastorem meum, et super virum cohærentem mihi, dicit Dominus exercituum : percute pastorem, et dispergentur oves : et convertam manum meam ad parvulos. Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that cleaveth to me, saith the Lord of hosts: strike the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand to the little ones.
8 Et erunt in omni terra, dicit Dominus : partes duæ in ea dispergentur, et deficient : et tertia pars relinquetur in ea. And there shall be in all the earth, saith the Lord, two parts in it shall be scattered, and shall perish: but the third part shall be left therein.
9 Et ducam tertiam partem per ignem, et uram eos sicut uritur argentum, et probabo eos sicut probatur aurum. Ipse vocabit nomen meum, et ego exaudiam eum. Dicam : Populus meus es : et ipse dicet : Dominus Deus meus. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined: and I will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on my name, and I will hear them. I will say: Thou art my people: and they shall say: The Lord is my God.

Zechariah 14

1 Ecce venient dies Domini, et dividentur spolia tua in medio tui. Behold the days of the Lord shall come, and thy spoils shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2 Et congregabo omnes gentes ad Jerusalem in prælium : et capietur civitas, et vastabuntur domus, et mulieres violabuntur : et egredietur media pars civitatis in captivitatem, et reliquum populi non auferetur ex urbe. And I will gather all nations to Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken, and the houses shall be rifled, and the women shall be defiled: and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the rest of the people shall not be taken away out of the city.
3 Et egredietur Dominus, et præliabitur contra gentes illas, sicut præliatus est in die certaminis. Then the Lord shall go forth, and shall fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 Et stabunt pedes ejus in die illa super montem Olivarum, qui est contra Jerusalem ad orientem : et scindetur mons Olivarum ex media parte sui ad orientem et ad occidentem, prærupto grandi valde : et separabitur medium montis ad aquilonem, et medium ejus ad meridiem. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is over against Jerusalem toward the east: and the mount of Olives shall be divided in the midst thereof to the east, and to the west with a very great opening, and half of the mountain shall be separated to the north, and half thereof to the south.
5 Et fugietis ad vallem montium eorum, quoniam conjungetur vallis montium usque ad proximum : et fugietis sicut fugistis a facie terræmotus in diebus Oziæ regis Juda : et veniet Dominus Deus meus, omnesque sancti cum eo. And you shall flee to the valley of those mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall be joined even to the next, and you shall flee r as you fled from the face of the earthquake in the days of Ozias king of Juda: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with him.
6 Et erit in die illa : non erit lux, sed frigus et gelu. And it shall come to pass in that day, that there shall be no light, but cold and frost.
7 Et erit dies una quæ nota est Domino, non dies neque nox : et in tempore vesperi erit lux. And there shall be one day, which is known to the Lord, not day nor night : and in the time of the evening there shall be light.
8 Et erit in die illa : exibunt aquæ vivæ de Jerusalem : medium earum ad mare orientale, et medium earum ad mare novissimum : in æstate et in hieme erunt. And it shall come to pass in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem: half of them to the east sea, and half of them to the last sea: they shall be in summer and in winter.
9 Et erit Dominus rex super omnem terram : in die illa erit Dominus unus, et erit nomen ejus unum. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day there shall be one Lord, and his name shall be one.
10 Et revertetur omnis terra usque ad desertum, de colle Remmon ad austrum Jerusalem : et exaltabitur, et habitabit in loco suo, a porta Benjamin usque ad locum portæ prioris, et usque ad portam angulorum, et a turre Hananeel usque ad torcularia regis. And all the land shall return even to the desert, from the hill to Remmon to the south of Jerusalem: and she shall be exalted, and shall dwell in her own place, from the gate of Benjamin even to the place of the former gate, and even to the gate of the corners: and from the tower of Hananeel even to the king’s wine- presses.
11 Et habitabunt in ea, et anathema non erit amplius, sed sedebit Jerusalem secura. And people shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more an anathema: but Jerusalem shall sit secure.
12 Et hæc erit plaga qua percutiet Dominus omnes gentes quæ pugnaverunt adversus Jerusalem : tabescet caro uniuscujusque stantis super pedes suos : et oculi ejus contabescent in foraminibus suis, et lingua eorum contabescet in ore suo. And this shall be the plague where with the Lord shall strike all nations that have fought against Jerusalem: the flesh of every one shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
13 In die illa erit tumultus Domini magnus in eis : et apprehendet vir manum proximi sui, et conseretur manus ejus super manum proximi sui. In that day there shall be a great tumult from the Lord among them: and a man shall take the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall be clasped upon his neighbour’s hand.
14 Sed et Judas pugnabit adversus Jerusalem : et congregabuntur divitiæ omnium gentium in circuitu, aurum, et argentum, et vestes multæ satis. And even Juda shall fight against Jerusalem: and the riches of all nations round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and garments in great abundance.
15 Et sic erit ruina equi, et muli, et cameli, et asini, et omnium jumentorum quæ fuerint in castris illis, sicut ruina hæc. And the destruction of the horse, and of the mule, and of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts, that shall be in those tents, shall be like this destruction.
16 Et omnes qui reliqui fuerint de universis gentibus quæ venerunt contra Jerusalem, ascendent ab anno in annum ut adorent regem, Dominum exercituum, et celebrent festivitatem tabernaculorum. And all they that shall be left of all nations that came against Jerusalem, shall go up from year to year, to adore the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17 Et erit : qui non ascenderit de familiis terræ ad Jerusalem ut adoret regem, Dominum exercituum, non erit super eos imber. And it shall come to pass, that he that shall not go up of the families of the land to Jerusalem, to adore the King, the Lord of hosts, there shall be no rain upon them.
18 Quod etsi familia Ægypti non ascenderit et non venerit, nec super eos erit : sed erit ruina, qua percutiet Dominus omnes gentes quæ non ascenderint ad celebrandam festivitatem tabernaculorum. And if the family of Egypt go not up nor come: neither shall it be upon them, but there shall be destruction wherewith the Lord will strike all nations that will not go up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19 Hoc erit peccatum Ægypti, et hoc peccatum omnium gentium quæ non ascenderint ad celebrandam festivitatem tabernaculorum. This shall be the sin of Egypt, and this the sin of all nations, that will not go up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
20 In die illa, erit quod super frenum equi est, sanctum Domino : et erunt lebetes in domo Domini quasi phialæ coram altari. In that day that which is upon the bridle of the horse shall be holy to the Lord: and the caldrons in the house of the Lord shall be as the phials before the altar.
21 Et erit omnis lebes in Jerusalem et in Juda sanctificatus Domino exercituum : et venient omnes immolantes, et sument ex eis, et coquent in eis : et non erit mercator ultra in domo Domini exercituum in die illo. And every caldron in Jerusalem and Juda shall be sanctified to the Lord of hosts: and all that sacrifice shall come, and take of them, and shall seethe in them: and the merchant shall be no more in the house of the Lord of hosts in that day.
