Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Angelus Domini astitit et lumen refulsit in habitaculo carceris,
percussoque latere Petri excitavit eum dicens:
Surge velociter quia ceciderunt catenae de manibus tuis.

English.png English translation

An angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell.
He struck Peter on the side, woke him up and said:
Quick, get up, because the chains fell off your wrists.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Megjelent az Úr angyala és fény ragyogott fel a cellában.
[Az angyal] meglökte Péter oldalát, fölkeltette és így szólt:
Kelj fel gyorsan, mert a láncok lehullottak a kezedről.
