Isaiah 46 VUL/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Latin Vulgate (VUL) New International Version (NIV)
1 conflatus est Bel contritus est Nabo facta sunt simulacra eorum bestiis et iumentis onera vestra gravi pondere usque ad lassitudinem 1 Bel bows down, Nebo stoops low; their idols are borne by beasts of burden. The images that are carried about are burdensome, a burden for the weary.
2 contabuerunt et contrita sunt simul non potuerunt salvare portantem et anima eorum in captivitatem ibit 2 They stoop and bow down together; unable to rescue the burden, they themselves go off into captivity.
3 audite me domus Iacob et omne residuum domus Israhel qui portamini a meo utero qui gestamini a mea vulva 3 "Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth.
4 usque ad senectam ego ipse et usque ad canos ego portabo ego feci et ego feram et ego portabo et salvabo 4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
5 cui adsimilastis me et adaequastis et conparastis me et fecistis similem 5 "To whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?
6 qui confertis aurum de sacculo et argentum statera ponderatis conducentes aurificem ut faciat deum et procidunt et adorant 6 Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales; they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god, and they bow down and worship it.
7 portant illud in umeris gestantes et ponentes in loco suo et stabit ac de loco suo non movebitur sed et cum clamaverint ad eum non audiet de tribulatione non salvabit eos 7 They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Though one cries out to it, it does not answer; it cannot save him from his troubles.
8 mementote istud et fundamini redite praevaricatores ad cor 8 "Remember this, fix it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels.
9 recordamini prioris saeculi quoniam ego sum Deus et non est ultra Deus nec est similis mei 9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.
10 adnuntians ab exordio novissimum et ab initio quae necdum facta sunt dicens consilium meum stabit et omnis voluntas mea fiet 10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.
11 vocans ab oriente avem et de terra longinqua virum voluntatis meae et locutus sum et adducam illud creavi et faciam illud 11 From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.
12 audite me duro corde qui longe estis a iustitia 12 Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are far from righteousness.
13 prope feci iustitiam meam non elongabitur et salus mea non morabitur dabo in Sion salutem et Israheli gloriam meam 13 I am bringing my righteousness near, it is not far away; and my salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel.
