Latin.png Latin text

Beatus homo cui donatum est habere timorem Dei,
qui tenet illum cui assimilabitur?
Timor Dei initium dilectionis ejus,
fidei autem initium agglutinandum est ei.

Ecclesiasticus 25;15-16

English.png English translation

Blessed is the man, to whom it is given to have the fear of God:
he that holdeth it, to whom shall he be likened?
The fear of God is the beginning of his love:
and the beginning of faith is to be fast joined unto it.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Boldog az ember, akinek megadatott Isten félelme,
aki ragaszkodik hozzá, van-e párja annak?
Isten félelme az istenszeretet kezdete,
a hit pedig az ő követésének a kezdete.

(Sirák fia könyve 25;15-16)
