Omnes amíci mei dereliquérunt me, et prævaluérunt insidiántes mihi: trádidit me quem diligébam: Et terribílibus óculis plaga crudéli percutiéntes, acéto potábant me. Inter iníquos proiecérunt me, et non pepercérunt ánimæ meæ. Et terribílibus óculis plaga crudéli percutiéntes, acéto potábant me.

 

The English translation is as follows:

He whom I loved has betrayed me. And with fierce looks and cruel blows they gave me vinegar to drink. They cast me among the wicked and did not spare my soul. And with fierce looks and cruel blows they gave me vinegar to drink.
