English Editorial:Fragment of the manuscript heritage is written in heavily slovakised Czech, it is assumed that its author was a Slovak. Versed structure is a paraphrase of the Ten Commandments and the song was used during church services. Text was recorded in 1532 or 1552. Versed decalogue is probably the oldest Slovak spiritual song.

Slovak Editorial: Fragment rukopisnej pamiatky je písaný silne slovakizovanou češtinou, predpokladá sa, že jej autorom bol Slovák. Veršovaná skladba je parafrázou desatora kresťanských prikázaní a slúžila ako pieseň na bohoslužobné ciele. Text bol zapísaný v roku 1532 alebo 1552. Veršované desatoro je pravdepodobne najstaršia slovenská duchovná pieseň.
