Obsecro vos, fratres, per misericordiam Dei,
ut exhibeatis corpora vestra hostiam viventem, sacram, Deo placentem,
rationabile obsequium vestrum.

Nolite conformari huic saeculo, sed reformamini in novitate sensus vestri,
ut probetis quae sit voluntas Dei: bona, beneplacens et perfecta.

English.png English translation

I beseech you, brethren, by the mercy of God,
that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing unto God,
your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be reformed in the newness of your mind,
that you may prove what is the good and the acceptable and the perfect will of God.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Kérlek benneteket, testvérek, Isten irgalmasságára,
hogy adjátok testeteket élő, szent, Istennek tetsző áldozatul.
Ez legyen a ti ésszerű istentiszteletetek.

Ne szabjátok magatokat e világhoz, hanem alakuljatok át értelmetek megújításával,
hogy felismerjétek, mi az Isten akarata, mi a jó, neki kedves és tökéletes.
