Find missing numbers in the sequence and decode the message

Sequence - 81, 87, 69, 82, 84, 89, --, --, --, --

Message - 117 110 100 101 102 105 110 101 100 101 116 97 114 116 110 101 39 104 99 32 105 111 118 32 44 97 122 110 97 114 101 112 115 32 105 110 103 111 32 101 116 97 105 99 115 97 76

First step:

Sequence: ASCII values of QWERTY, which is the English keyboard
So the missing values are: 85, 73, 79, 80
Then the message is undefinedetartne'hc iov ,aznareps ingo etaicsaL

Credit to @M Oehm:

Reversing it leads to Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate
Using google translate: Leave all hope, you who enter
Or something to do with Dante's Inferno

    $\begingroup$ @Jon.G: don't give up your hops: What's after "undefined" is backwards and in Italian. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 23 '18 at 10:12

    $\begingroup$ (The line is from Dante's Inferno, which may be a better reference than Google translate.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 23 '18 at 10:24
