Latin.png Latin text

Tamquam ad latronem
existis cum gladiis et fustibus comprehendere me:

Quotidie apud vos eram in templo docens
et non me tenuistis:
et ecce flagellatum ducitis ad crucifigendum.

Cumque iniecissent manus in Iesum et tenuissent eum,
Dixit ad eos:

Quotidie apud vos eram in templo docens
et non me tenuistis:
et ecce flagellatum ducitis ad crucifigendum.

You come as against a robber
with swords and clubs to apprehend me:

I was daily with you in the temple teaching
and you did not arrest me;
and behold you lead me to scourging and to be crucified.

They laid hands on Jesus and held him fast,
He said to them:

I was daily with you in the temple teaching
and you did not arrest me;
and behold you lead me to scourging and to be crucified.
