Accéssit ad Jesum
   mater filiórum Zebadaei cum fíliis suis,
   petens áliquid ab eo.
Qui dixit ei: Quid vis?
Dic ut sédeant hi duo fílii mei,
   unus ad déxteram tuam,
   et unus ad sinístram in regno tuo.

Respóndens autem Jesus, dixit:
   Nescítis quid petátis.
   Sedére autem ad déxteram meam vel ad
   sinístram meam non est meum dare vobis,
   sed quibus parátum est a Patre meo.

Then came to Jesus
   the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons,
   desiring a certain thing of him.
And he said unto her, “What wilt thou?”
“Grant that these my two sons may sit,
    the one on thy right hand,
    and the other on the left in thy kingdom.”

But Jesus answered and said,
   “Ye know not what ye ask.
    To sit on my right hand and on
    my left is not mine to give,
    but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.”
