Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Qui timet Deum, faciet bona, et qui continens est justitiae, apprehendet illam
et obviabit illi quasi mater honorificata.

(Liber Jesu filii Sirach, 15, 1-2a)

English.png English translation

He that feareth God, will do good: and he that possesseth justice, shall lay hold on her,
And she will meet him as an honourable mother.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Aki Istent féli, jót cselekszik, s aki kitart az igazság mellett, elnyeri azt.
Az pedig eléje megy, mint tisztes anya.
