Job tonso capite corruens in terram adoravit et dixit:
nudus egressus sum de utero matris meae et nudus revertar illuc.

Dominus dedit, Dominus abstulit; sicut Domino placuit, ita factum est.
Sit nomen Domini benedictum ex hoc nunc et usque in saeculum.

Job, his head shaven, fell upon the ground, and worshipped, and said,
Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return.

The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; as it pleased the Lord, so was it done.
Blessed be the name of the Lord from now and for ever.
