I would like to get this translated: "Do not read the latin"

The meaning I am trying to convey is an instruction to not read latin aloud ... think, the supernatural horror movie where the characters find an old book in a locked room and sound out the latin phrases, summoning summon demons, spirits and the like.

The usual verb for "to read" is legere, but there is one verb for "to read aloud" which is recitare. But legere was very much used so I think someone would choose it so people doesn't make a (deadly) mistake.

I'll provide sentences with both verbs, so you can choose.

- Linguam Latinam noli legere/recitare
- Linguam Latinam ne legeris/recitaveris
- Lingua Latina, non legitur/recitatur - This one is "It is Latin, it's not meant to be read/read aloud"
