all-powerful Lord God.a 8If you do not do this, know that, on the day of judgment, you must render an account Mt 12:36 before the Lord Your God, Jesus Christ.

9Let those who keep this writing with them and observe it know that they will be blessed by the Lord God.

7Et tantum honorem in populo vobis commisso Domino conferatis, ut quolibet sero annuntietur per nuntium vel per aliud signum, quo omnipotenti Domino Deo ab universo populo laudes et gratiae referantur. 8Et, si hoc non feceritis, sciatis vos debere coram Domino Deo vestro Jesu Christo in die iudicii reddere rationem.

9Hoc scriptum qui apud se retinuerint et observaverint illud, a Domino Deo se noverint benedictos.
