Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Fallax gratia et vana pulchritudo,
mulier timens Deum ipsa laudabitur.
(Prov 31,30)

English.png English translation

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
the woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Csalárd a kedvesség, és hiú a szépség;
az Urat félő asszony a dicséretes.
