Latin.png Latin text

Quam pulchri super montes pedes evangelizantis et prædicantis pacem:
adnuntiantis bonum, prædicantis salutem, dicentis Sion: Regnavit Deus tuus!
Vox speculatorum tuorum: levaverunt vocem, simul laudabunt,
quia oculum ad oculum videbunt cum converterit Dominus Sion.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him, that declareth and publisheth peace:
that declareth good tidings, and publisheth salvation, saying unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
The voice of thy watchmen shall be heard: they shall lift up their voice, and shout together:
for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.

(Geneva Bible)
