Language: Latin

Seniores populi consilium fecerunt ut Jesum dolo tenerent et occiderent.
Nihil rapuit eis Jesus, ista sathanas finxit somnia;
nihil abstulit eis Christus qui largitus est eis omnia.
Cur igitur exierunt comprehendere eum cum gladiis et fustibus tanquam ad latronem?
Collegerunt pontifices et pharisaei consilium ut Jesum dolo tenerent et occiderent.

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Les anciens du peuple tinrent conseil pour qu'ils prennent Jésus par ruse et le tuent.
Jésus ne leur rien volé, Satan a inventé ces extravagances ;
le Christ ne leur a rien pris, lui qui leur a tout donné.
Pourquoi donc sont-ils sortis avec leurs épées et leurs bâtons pour le saisir comme un voleur ?
Les prêtres et les pharisiens tinrent conseil pour qu'ils prennent Jésus par ruse et le tuent.
