    • Luxembourgish translation of Matthew 5:13:
      De Jesus sot zu senge Jünger: "Dir sidd d'Salz vun der Äerd! Wann awer dat Salz fad ginn ass, wouduerch kann et dann nees salzeg gemaach ginn? Et daacht näischt méi, et ass just nach gutt, fir erausgehäit a vun de Leit zertrëppelt ze ginn.
      Jesus said to his disciples: "You are the salt of the earth! But when the salt has gone bland, with what can it then be made salty again? It is then good for nothing, it is good enough only to be thrown out and trodden on by the people.
