Seconde leçon de ténèbres du Vendredi...

Language: Latin

Aleph. Quomodo obscuratum est aurum! Mutatus est color optimus!
Dispersi sunt lapidea sanctuarii in capite omnium platearum.

Beth. Filii Sion inclyti, et amicti auro primo,
quomodo reputati sunt in vasa testea, opus manuum figuli?

Ghimel. Sed et lamiae nudaverunt mammam, lactaverunt catulos suos;
filia populi mei crudelis quasi struthio in deserto.

Daleth. Adhaesit lingua lactentis ad palatum ejus in siti; 
parvuli petierunt panem, et non erat qui frangeret eis.

He. Qui vescebantur voluptuose, interierunt in viis;
qui nutriebantur in croceis, amplexati sunt stercora.

Vau. Et major effecta est iniquitas filiae populi mei peccato Sodomorum,
quae subversa est in momento, et non ceperunt in ea manus.
