French
Article IV – La liberté consiste à pouvoir faire tout ce qui ne nuit pas à autrui : ainsi l’exercice des droits naturels de chaque homme n’a de bornes que celles qui assurent aux autres membres de la société la jouissance de ces mêmes droits. Ces bornes ne peuvent être déterminées que par la loi.

German
Artikel 4 – Die Freiheit besteht darin, alles tun zu dürfen, was einem anderen nicht schadet: Die Ausübung der natürlichen Rechte eines jeden Menschen hat also nur die Grenzen, die den anderen Mitgliedern der Gesellschaft den Genuss ebendieser Rechte sichern. Diese Grenzen können nur durch das Gesetz bestimmt werden.

Italian
Art. IV – La libertà consiste nel poter fare tutto ciò che non nuoce ad altri; quindi l'esercizio dei diritti naturali di ogni persona non ha altri confini, se non quelli che agli altri membri della società assicurano il godimento dei medesimi diritti; nè questi confini ponno essere determinati che dalle leggi.

Spanish
Art. IV – La libertad consiste en poder hacer todo aquello que no cause perjuicio a los demás. El ejercicio de los derechos naturales de cada hombre no tiene otros límites que los que garantizan a los demás Miembros de la Sociedad el disfrute de estos mismos derechos. Estos límites sólo pueden ser determinados por la Ley.
