Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Amen dico vobis:
Qui sermonem meum audit
et credit ei qui me misit,
habet vitam aeternam
et in condemnationem non veniet,
sed transiit a morte in vitam.

Vulgata text

Amen, amen dico vobis,
quia qui verbum meum audit,
et credit ei qui misit me,
habet vitam aeternam,
et in judicium non venit,
sed transiit a morte in vitam.
John 5:24

Amen, amen I say unto you,
that he who heareth my word,
and believeth him that sent me,
hath life everlasting;
and cometh not into judgment,
but is passed from death to life.
Douay transl.
