In omnibus requiem quaesivi, et in haereditate Domini morabor.
Tunc praecepit et dixit mihi creator omnium,
et qui creavit me requievit in tabernaculo meo et dixit mihi:
In Jacob inhabita et in Israel haereditare et in electis meis mitte radices.
(Sirach/Ecclesiasticus 24:11-13)

English.png English translation

In all these I sought rest, and I shall abide in the inheritance of the Lord.
Then the creator of all things commanded, and said to me: and he that made me, rested in my tabernacle,
And he said to me: Let thy dwelling be in Jacob, and thy inheritance in Israel, and take root in my elect.
(Douay-Rheims Bible translation)
