Latin.png Latin text

Cognovi, Domine, quia aequitas judicia tua, et in veritate tua humiliasti me.
Veniant mihi miserationes tuae, et vivam, quia lex tua meditatio mea est.
Psalm 118 (119); 75, 77

English.png English translation

I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are equity: and in thy truth thou hast humbled me.
Let thy tender mercies come unto me, and I shall live: for thy law is my meditation.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Megismerem, Uram! hogy igazság a te itéleteid, és igazvoltodban aláztál meg engem.
Jőjenek rám a te könyörűleteid, hogy éljek; mert a te törvényed az én elmélkedésem.
