    "Deus, venerunt gentes," alternando 1 'Deus, venerunt gentes,' the ladies,
 
or tre or quattro dolce salmodia, 2 now three, now four, in alternation sang,
 
le donne incominciaro, e lagrimando; 3 beginning their sweet psalmody in tears,
 
    e Bëatrice, sospirosa e pia, 4 and Beatrice, sighing and compassionate,
 
quelle ascoltava sì fatta, che poco 5 was listening, her face so changed in its expression
 
più a la croce si cambiò Maria. 6 that Mary's, at the cross, was hardly more transformed.
 
    Ma poi che l'altre vergini dier loco 7 But when the other virgins stopped their song,
 
a lei di dir, levata dritta in pè, 8 allowing her to speak, she answered, rising
 
rispuose, colorata come foco: 9 to her feet and blazing like a fire:
 
    "Modicum, et non videbitis me; 10 'Modicum, et non videbitis me; et iterum,
 
et iterum, sorelle mie dilette, 11 my beloved sisters,
 
modicum, et vos videbitis me." 12 modicum, et vos videbitis me.'
 
    Poi le si mise innanzi tutte e sette, 13 Then she arranged the seven before her
 
e dopo sé, solo accennando, mosse 14 and, with a gesture, signaled me, the lady,
 
me e la donna e 'l savio che ristette. 15 and the sage who had remained, to follow.
