7  Duo rogavi te: ne deneges mihi antequam moriar;
8  vanitatem et verba mendacia longe fac a me mendicitatem, et divitias ne dederis mihi,
ribue tantum victui meo necessaria;
9  ne forte saciatus illiciar ad negandum, et dicam quis est Dominus
aut egestate compulsus furer, et periurem nomen Dei mei.

7  Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:
8  Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with food convenient for me:
9  Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord?
or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
