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.

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.
