Diligite iustitiam qui iudicatis terram
sentite de Domino in bonitate
et in simplicitate cordis quaerite illum
quoniam invenitur ad his qui temptant illum
apparet ante eis qui fidem habent in illum. (Wisdom 1:1-2)

English.png English translation

Love justice, you that judge the earth.
Thinke of our Lord in goodnes,
and in simplicitie of hart seeke him:
because he is found of them that tempt him not:
and he appeareth to them that have faith in him. (Douay translation 1610)
