Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Dum steteritis ante reges et praesides,
nolite cogitare quomodo aut quid loquamini,
dabitur enim vobis in illa hora quid loquamini.

Non enim vos estis qui loquimini,
sed spiritus Patris vestri qui loquitur in vobis,
dabitur enim vobis in illa hora quid loquamini.

But when you shall stand before kings and governors,
take no thought how or what to speak,
for it shall be given you in that hour what to speak.

For it is not you that speak,
but the spirit of your Father that speaketh in you,
for it shall be given you in that hour what to speak.
 

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Amikor pedig királyok és kormányzók előtt fogtok állni, ne aggódjatok, hogy hogyan vagy mit beszéljetek,
mert megadatik nektek abban az órában, hogy mit mondjatok.

Hiszen nem ti vagytok, akik beszéltek, hanem Atyátok Lelke az, aki beszél általatok,
mert megadatik nektek abban az órában, hogy mit mondjatok.
