Responsum accepit Simeon a Spiritu Sancto non visurum se mortem nisi videret Christum Domini.
Et cum inducerent puerum in templum, accepit eum in ulnas suas et benedixit Deum et dixit:
Nunc dimmitis servum tuum Domine in pace.

Cum inducerent puerum Jesum parentes ejus ut facerent secundum consuetudinem legis pro eo,
et ipse accepit eum in ulnas suas et benedixit Deum et dixit:
Nunc dimittis servum tuum Domine in pace.
