Jerusalem, quae occidis prophetas et lapidas eos
qui ad te missi sunt quoties volui congregare filios tuos
quemadmodum gallina congregat pullos suos sub alas et noluistis,
ecce enim relinquetur domus vestra deserta.

Dico enim vobis non me videbitis amodo, donec dicatis:
benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
