In jejunio et fletu orabant sacerdotes:
Parce, Domine, parce populo tuo, et ne des hereditatem tuam in perditionem.
Inter vestibulum et altare plorabant sacerdotes, dicentes: Parce populo tuo.

In fasting and weeping the priests prayed:
Spare, O Lord, spare thy people, and give not thine inheritance to perdition.
Between the porch and the altar the priests wept, saying: Spare thy people.
