Latin.png Latin text

Periti autem fulgebunt ut fulgor aethereus.
Quique multos reddiderunt justos erunt stellarum similes,
in omnem aeternitatem.

(King James Bible; Daniel 12:3)
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament;
and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars
for ever and ever.

German.png German translation

Es strahlen hell die Gerechten, sie leuchten im Glanz des Herrn
Die getreu gedient auf Erden, sie werden sein den Sternen gleich,
sie sollen erhöhet werden.
