Italian translation of Si la riguer, Brogni's aria from La Juive

Si la riguer et la vengeance  	Se il riogor e la  vendetta
leur font hair ta sainte loi, 	lor fanno odiar tua santa legge,
que le pardon,que la clemence 	che il perdono e la clemenza,
mon Dieu, les ramène en ce    	mio Dio, li riporti in
	jour vers toi. 			tal dì verso te.
