Latin.png Latin text

Diligite justitiam qui judicatis terram,
sentite de Domino in bonitate,
et in simplicitate cordis quaerite illum,
quoniam invenitur ab his qui non tentant illum,
apparet autem his, qui fidem habent in illum.

English.png English translation

Love justice, you that judge the earth.
Thinke of our Lord in goodnes,
and in simplicitie of hart seeke him:
because he is found of them that tempt him not:
and he appeareth to them that have faith in him. (Douay translation 1610)
