Latin.png Latin text

Ego enim inique egi, tu poena mulctaris;
Ego facinus admisi, tu ultione plecteris;
Ego superbivi, tu humiliaris;
Ego tumui, tu attenuaris;
Ego praesumpsi vetitum,
tu mortis subiisti aculeum;
Ego pomi dulcedinem,
tu fellis gustasti amaritudinem.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Immers, ik heb mij onbillijk gedragen,
jij werd met foltering gestraft;
ik heb me schuldig gemaakt aan een misdaad,
jij werd uit wraak gestraft.
Ik was trots,
jij werd gekleineerd;
ik was opgeblazen,
jij werd uitgeknepen
ik genoot van het verbodene,

jij onderging de uitdaging van de dood.

ik gaf me over aan zoet fruit.

Jij hebt de bitterheid van de gal geproefd.

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge, Hanneke Pot

I indeed acted wickedly, You were punished in retribution;
I committed the deed, You were beaten in punishment;
I exalted myself, You were humiliated;
I was full of pride, You were abased;
I took what was forbidden,
You were subjected to the sharpness of death;
I tasted the sweetness of the fruit,
You the bitterness of the gall.
