Ecce Judas, unus de duodecim

Language: Latin

Ecce Judas, unus de duodecim, 
et cum eo turba multa venit deditque illis signum dicens:
«Quem cumque osculatus fuero, ipse est, tenete eum». 
Et osculatus est Jesum et dixit illi Jesus:
«Amice, ad quid venisti, o Juda, 
filium hominis osculo tradis».
Et manus injecerunt in Jesum et tenuerunt eum.
Vae homini illi qui sanguinem justum qui filium hominis tradidit 
in manus peccatorum, vae homini illi.
Bonum erat ei si natus non fuisset.

Voici Judas, un des douze

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Voici Judas, un des douze,
et avec lui une foule nombreuse arrive et il leur fait un signe en disant :
"Celui à qui je donnerai un baiser, c'est lui, prenez-le."
Et il donne un baiser à Jésus et Jésus lui  dit :
"Ami, pourquoi es-tu venu, ô Judas,
tu trahis le fils de l'homme par ton baiser."
Et les mains saisirent Jésus et l'arrêtèrent.
Malheur à cet homme qui trahit un sang juste, le fils de l'homme,
aux mains des pécheurs, malheur à cet homme.
Il aurait mieux valu qu'il ne soit pas né.
