Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Junior fui etenim senui et non vidi justum derelictum
nec semen ejus quaerens panem.
Tota die miseretur et commodat
et semen illius in benedictione erit.

Declina a malo et fac bonum et inhabita in saeculum saeculi.
Custodi innocentiam et vide aequitatem
quoniam sunt reliquiae homini pacifico.
(Ps. 36;25-27,37)

English.png English translation

I have been young and now am old; and I have not seen the just forsaken,
nor his seed seeking bread.
He sheweth mercy, and lendeth all the day long;
and his seed shall be in blessing.

Decline from evil and do good, and dwell for ever and ever.
Keep innocence, and behold justice:
for there are remnants for the peaceable man.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Ifjú voltam és megöregedtem: de nem láttam, hogy az igaz elhagyatott,
sem hogy az ő ivadéka kenyeret kéregetett volna.
Napestig könyörűl és kölcsön ad; és ivadéka áldásban leszen.

Távozzál a gonosztól, és cselekedjél jót, és megmaradsz örökön örökké.
Őrizd meg az ártatlanságot, és nézd az igazságot:
mert vannak maradékai a békeséges embernek.
