Pilinszky János: Pilátus

Portre of Pilinszky János

Pilátus (Hungarian)

Kemény vagy, hivatalból.
Elitélsz, hivatalból.
Rámnézel, hivatalból.

Rádnézek mindörökre -
rádnézek mindhiába.

Itt állok mindörökre -
itt állok mindhiába.

Fölmentelek mindörökre.

Pilate (English)

You’re ruthless, it’s your duty.
You condemn me, it’s your duty.
You look at me, it’s your duty.

I look at you for evermore -
I look at you all in vain.

I stand here for evermore -
I stand here all in vain.

I absolve you for evermore.
