Audi, fília, et vide, et inclína aurem tuam:
 et obliviscére pópulum tuum et domum patris tui.
Et concupíscet rex decórem tuum:
 quóniam ipse est Dóminus Deus tuus, et adorábunt eum.

Pro pátribus tuis nati sunt tibi fílii:
 constítues eos príncipes super omnem terram.
Memóres erunt nóminis tui, Dómine, in omni generatióne et generatiónem.

English.png English translation

Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear:
 forget also thine own people and thy father's house.
So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty:
 for he is the Lord thy God, and him they shall adore.

In place of thy fathers, sons are born to thee:
 thou shalt make them princes over all the earth.
They shall be mindful of thy name, O Lord, throughout all generations.
