Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Videns Dóminus flentes soróres Lázari ad monuméntum,
lacrimátus est coram Judéis,
et clamábat: Lázare, veni foras:
et pródiit ligátus mánibus et pédibus,
qui fúerat quatriduánus mórtuus.

English.png English translation

The Lord, seeing the sisters of Lazarus crying at the tomb,
wept in the presence of the Jews,
and he shouted: “Lazarus, come forth”.
And out he came, hands and feet bound,
he who had been dead for four days.
