Linguists, pagans, classicists...

...lend me your brains.

I'm looking for short inscriptions of the household blessing sort, suitable for placing in less conspicuous areas of a front porch, in the following languages:

Sanskrit
Classical Greek
Latin
Some old Norse tongue
Some old Celtic tongue

All the better if they are actually attested in the ancient texts. For instance, for Greek I have contemplated using a short extract of the Homeric Hymn to Hestia. That sort of thing. These languages are picked because they represent both biological and cultural ancestors, and because of the diversity of alphabets. We've debated about Hebrew, too...

Any suggestions?
