Quomodo miseretur pater filiorum, misertus est Dominus timentibus se.
Quoniam ipse cognovit figmentum nostrum; recordatus est quoniam pulvis sumus.
Homo, sicut foenum dies ejus; tamquam flos agri, sic efflorebit.

Quoniam spiritus pertransibit in illo, et non subsistet, et non cognoscet amplius locum suum.
Misericordia autem Domini ab aeterno, et usque in aeternum super timentes eum.

English.png English translation

As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him,
for he knoweth our frame, he remembereth that we are dust:
Man's days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish.

For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place no more.
But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity and unto eternity upon them that fear him.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Mint az atya könyörűl fiain, úgy könyörűl az Úr az őt félőkön;
mert ő ismeri alkatunkat, megemlékezik, hogy mi por vagyunk.
Az ember napjai, mint a széna; elhervad ő, mint a mezei virág.

Mert a szél átmegy rajta, meg nem marad, és többé helyét sem ismerik meg.
Az Úr irgalmassága viszont öröktől van és mindörökké az őt félőkön.
