Come to me; I summon you.

    I am writing a fantasy story and need a Latin translation for this sentence: “Come to me; I summon you.”

    The speaker is an adult man. He is addressing a gender-neutral chthonic spirit—authoritatively, but with respect.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Thank you for your answer.

    I notice that you translated the phrase with two different word orders. Is there any meaningful difference between the two? And if so, what is it?

    I appreciate your help!

    Thank you. I see the slight shift in emphasis now.
