Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Si coelum et coeli coelorum non te capiunt,
quanto magis domus ista quam aedificavi?

Sed ad hoc tantum facta est
ut respicias orationem servi tui
et obsecrationem ejus, Domine, Deus meus.
(2 Chr. 6:18b-19a)

English.png English translation

If heaven and the heavens of heavens do not contain thee,
how much less this house, which I have built?
But to this end only it is made,
that thou mayest regard the prayer of thy servant
and his supplication, O Lord my God.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Ha az ég s az egek ege nem képes befogadni téged,
mennyivel kevésbé ez a ház, amelyet építettem?
De hiszen csak azért készült,
hogy tekints szolgád imádságára és
könyörgésére, Uram, Istenem.
