Quae est enim alia gens sic inclita

Language: Latin

Quae est enim alia gens sic inclita 
ut habeat caerimonias iustaque iudicia 
et universam legem quam ego proponam 
hodie ante oculos vestros.
Custodi igitur temet ipsum 
et animam tuam sollicite 
ne obliviscaris verborum quae viderunt oculi tui 
et ne excedant de corde tuo cunctis diebus vitae tuae 
docebis ea filios ac nepotes tuos.

Language: English after the Latin

Or what great nation has statutes and decrees 
that are as just as this whole law 
which I am setting before you today?

However, take care and be earnestly on your guard not to forget 
the things which your own eyes have seen, 
nor let them slip from your memory as long as you live, 
but teach them to your children and to your children's children.
