Ante me non est formatus Deus, et post me non erit,
quia mihi curvabitur omne genu, et confitebitur omnis lingua.
(Isaias 43,10 ; 45;23)

Before me there was no God formed, and after me there shall be none.
For every knee shall be bowed to me, and every tongue shall praise me.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Előttem nem formáltatott isten és utánam sem lesz,
mert előttem hajlik meg minden térd és engem dicsér minden nyelv.
