Pretiosa in conspectu Domini mors sanctorum eius. O Domine, quia ego servus tuus, ego servus tuus, et filius ancillae tuae. Dirupisti vincula mea, tibi sacrificabo hostiam laudis, et nomen Domini invocabo.

German.png German translation

Der Tod seiner Heiligen ist wertgehalten vor dem HERRN. O HERR, ich bin dein Knecht; ich bin dein Knecht, deiner Magd Sohn. Du hast meine Bande zerrissen. Dir will ich Dank opfern und des HERRN Namen predigen.
          Luther-Bibel 1545

English.png English translation

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
          King James Bible
