2:10  Si bona suscepimus de manu Domini,
mala autem quare non sustineamus?
1:21  Nudus egressus sum de utero matris mei, et nudus revertar illuc.
Dominus dedit, Dominus abstulit; sicut Domino placuit, ita factum est:
sit nomen Domini benedictum.

2:10  If we have received good things from the hand of the Lord,
why should we not endure bad things?
1:21  Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there.
The Lord has given, the Lord has taken away: as it has pleased the Lord, so is it done:
blessed be the name of the Lord.
Translation by Edward Tambling
