Latin.png Latin text

Quis est homo qui vult vitam et cupit videre dies bonos?
Cohibe linguam tuam a malo, et labia tua ne loquantur dolum.
Deverte a malo, et fac bonum; inquire pacem, et sequere eam.
Oculi Domini super iustos, et aures eius ad preces eorum.
Vultus autem Domini super facientes mala, ut perdat de terra memoriam eorum.
