Unser keiner lebet ihm selber
und keiner stirbet ihm selber.
Leben wir,
so leben wir dem Herren
Sterben wir,
so sterben wir dem Herren.
Darum wir leben oder sterben
so sind wir des Herren.

English.png English translation

None of us lives to himself,
and no man dies to himself.
For whether we live,
we live unto the Lord,
or whether we die,
we die unto the Lord.
Therefore, whether we live or whether we die,
we are the Lord's.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Senki közülünk nem él önmagának,
és senki nem hal meg önmagának.
Míg élünk,
Istennek élünk,
s ha meghalunk,
Istennek halunk meg.
Tehát akár élünk, akár meghalunk,
az Úréi vagyunk.
