Tenebrae factae sunt, dum crucifixissent Jesum Judaei.
Obscuratus est sol et velum templi scissum 
est medium a summo usque deorsum
et circa horam nonam exclamavit Jesus voce magna dicens :
«Deus meus, ut quid dereliquisti me ?»
Currens autem unus de circumstantibus implens
spongiam aceto circumponensque calamo potum dabat ei dicens:
«Sinite videamus si veniat Elias ad deponendum eum».
Jesus autem iterum clamans voce magna sic ait:
«Pater, in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum».
Et haec dicens expiravit.

Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Les ténèbres se firent, pendant que les Juifs crucifiaient Jésus.
Le soleil devint sombre et le voile du tempe de déchira
au milieu du haut jusqu'au bas
et vers la neuvième heure Jésus cria d'une voix forte :
"Mon Dieu, pourquoi m'as-tu abandonné ?"
Mais un des spectateurs courut et remplissant
une éponge de vinaigre et l'attachant à un roseau lui donna en disant :
"Laissez-nous voir si Élie vient le descendre."
Mais Jésus criant encore d'une voix forte dit :
"Père, en tes mains je remets mon esprit."
Et en disant cela, il mourut.
