When it comes to personalizing the Bible it is my belief that it is best done with a verse from the Bible . Psalms 118:105 is a popular choice: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. But not have this verse in Latin? Latin is a traditional language of inscriptions. The original language of this verse is Hebrew, but you may have a more difficult time finding an engraving service capable of reproducing it. Also, Latin is a perfect choice for Catholics. If you cannot read the Vulgate, at least engrave a verse from it!
