Vere Dominus est in loco isto et ego nesciebam.
Quam terribilis est locus iste, non est hic aliud nisi domus Domini et porta coeli.
(Gen 28, 16b-17)

English.png English translation

Surely the Lord is in this place and I was not aware of it.
How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of the Lord and the gate of heaven.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Valóban az Úr van ezen a helyen, és én nem is tudtam.
Milyen félelmetes ez a hely! Nem más ez, mint az Úr háza és a menny kapuja.
