Symon Petre antequam de navi
vocarem te novi te
et claves regni coelorum tradidi tibi:
Quodcunque ligaveris super terram,
erit ligatum et in coelis,
et quodcunque solveris super terram,
erit solutum et in coelis.
et claves regni…

Simon Peter, before I called you
from your boat I knew you,
and have delivered the keys of heaven unto you.
Whatsoever you bind on earth
will be bound in heaven,
and whatsoever you loose on earth
will be loosed in heaven.
