Dixit pater famílias operáriis suis:
Quid hic statis tota die occiósi?
At illi respondéntes dixérunt:
Quia nemo nos condúxit.
Ite et vos in víneam meam:
et quod justum fúerit, dabo vobis

The lord of the house said unto the labourers:
Why are you standing here idle?
They answered and said:
No one has hired us.
Go and work in my vineyard:
I will give you what is right and just.
