The Latin Vulgate w/ Apocrypha (VULA) New International Version (NIV)
6 haec dicit Dominus super tribus sceleribus Israhel et super quattuor non convertam eum pro eo quod vendiderit argento iustum et pauperem pro calciamentis 6 This is what the LORD says: "For three sins of Israel, even for four, I will not turn back [my wrath]. They sell the righteous for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals.
7 qui conterunt super pulverem terrae capita pauperum et viam humilium declinant et filius ac pater eius ierunt ad puellam ut violarent nomen sanctum meum 7 They trample on the heads of the poor as upon the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name.
8 et super vestimentis pigneratis accubuerunt iuxta omne altare et vinum damnatorum bibebant in domo Dei sui 8 They lie down beside every altar on garments taken in pledge. In the house of their god they drink wine taken as fines.
9 ego autem exterminavi Amorreum a facie eorum cuius altitudo cedrorum altitudo eius et fortis ipse quasi quercus et contrivi fructum eius desuper et radices eius subter 9 "I destroyed the Amorite before them, though he was tall as the cedars and strong as the oaks. I destroyed his fruit above and his roots below.
10 ego sum qui ascendere vos feci de terra Aegypti et eduxi vos in deserto quadraginta annis ut possideretis terram Amorrei 10 "I brought you up out of Egypt, and I led you forty years in the desert to give you the land of the Amorites.
11 et suscitavi de filiis vestris in prophetas et de iuvenibus vestris nazarenos numquid non ita est filii Israhel dicit Dominus 11 I also raised up prophets from among your sons and Nazirites from among your young men. Is this not true, people of Israel?" declares the LORD.
12 et propinabatis nazarenis vino et prophetis mandabatis dicentes ne prophetetis 12 "But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophesy.
13 ecce ego stridebo super vos sicut stridet plaustrum onustum faeno 13 "Now then, I will crush you as a cart crushes when loaded with grain.
14 et peribit fuga a veloce et fortis non obtinebit virtutem suam et robustus non salvabit animam suam 14 The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life.
15 et tenens arcum non stabit et velox pedibus suis non salvabitur et ascensor equi non salvabit animam suam 15 The archer will not stand his ground, the fleet-footed soldier will not get away, and the horseman will not save his life.
16 et robustus corde inter fortes nudus fugiet in die illa dicit Dominus 16 Even the bravest warriors will flee naked on that day," declares the LORD.
