Domine deduc me in justitia tua, propter inimicos meos dirige in conspectu tuo viam meam,
quoniam non est in ore eorum veritas et cor eorum vanum est.

Sepulchrum patens est guttur eorum, linguis suis dolose agebant,
judica illos, Deus.
(Ps. 5;9-11a)

English.png English translation

Conduct me, O Lord, in your justice, because of my enemies direct my way in your sight.
For there is no truth in their mouth, their heart is vain.

Their throat is an open grave, they dealt deceitfully with their tongues,
judge them, O God.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Uram! vezérelj engem igazságodban, ellenségeim miatt igazgasd útamat színed előtt.
Mert nincs igazság szájokban; hiú az ő szívök.

Nyílt sír az ő torkuk, nyelvöket álnokúl forgatják, itéld meg őket, Isten!
