    • L. L. Zamenhof (translator), Hebrew Scriptures, Josuo (Joshua) 7.12
      Tial la Izraelidoj ne povos rezisti antaŭ siaj malamikoj, sian dorson ili turnos al siaj malamikoj, ĉar ili falis sub anatemon; Mi ne estos plu kun vi, se vi ne malaperigos la anatemitaĵon el inter vi.
      Therefore the people of Israel cannot stand before their enemies; they turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become a thing for destruction (lit. have fallen under an anathema). I will be with you no more, unless you destroy the devoted things from among you.
    • Odd Tangerud (translator), La Tronpretendantoj (Kongs-Emnerne / The Pretenders) by Henrik Ibsen, Act V, Scene 1,
      La ĉerko malfiksiĝis, mi tiris ĝin post mi malsupren laŭ la preĝeja planko, dum la anatemo kraketadis kiel ŝtormo alte supre sub la volboj
      the shrine came away from where it was fixed, and I dragged it after me down the floor of the church, while the curses of the monks resounded like a storm through the vaulted roof (R. Farquharson Sharp translation, Everyman’s Library, 1913)
