Original text and translations

German.png German text

Der Gerechte, ob er gleich zu zeitlich stirbt ist er doch in der Ruhe.
Er gefällt Gott wohl und ist ihm lieb und wird weggenommen aus dem Leben unter den Sündern,
und wird hingerücket, daß die Bosheit seines Verstand nicht verkehre, noch falsche Lehre seine Seele betrübe,
er ist bald vollkommen worden und hat viel Jahr’ erfüllet.
Denn seine Seele gefällt Gott wohl. Darum eilet er mit ihm aus dem bösen Leben.
Weisheit 4,7-14

English.png English translation

The righteous, even when they may die too soon, nevertheless find rest.
They do please God and receive his love, and are taken away from life among sinners
and removed, so that wickedness does not twist their minds, nor false teaching distress their souls —
they are soon enough perfected and achieve many years,
for their souls do please God: that’s why he hurries them out of this wicked life.
Book of Wisdom 4:7–14
