Latin.png Latin text

Nonne duodecim sunt horæ diei?
Si quis ambulaverit in die, non offendit,
quia lucem huius mundi videt:
si autem ambulaverit in nocte, offendit,
quia lux non est in eo.

English.png English translation

Are there not twelve hours in the day?
If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not,
because he seeth the light of this world.
But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth,
because there is no light in him.

(trans. Geneva Bible)
