German.png German text

Der Mensch, vom Weibe geboren, lebt kurze Zeit.
Und ist voll Unruhe.
Gehet auf wie eine Blume, und fällt ab.
Fliehet wie eine Schatten, und bleibet nicht.
Der Mensch, vom Weibe geboren, lebt kurze Zeit.
 

English.png English translation

The man that is born of a woman is of few days
and full of trouble.
He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down;
fleeth as a shadow, continueth not.
The man that is born of a woman is of few days.
