In those dayes as the nombre playne
Of the disciples grew
A grudge arose and grefe certayne,
that dayly dyd renewe.

Amongst the Grekes, agaynst th'Hebrues
Their widows dispisyng
Would not alowe, but them refuse
In daylye ministryng.

German.png German translation

In den Tagen aber, da der Jünger viele wurden,
erhob sich ein Murmeln unter den Griechen wider die Hebräer,
darum dass ihre Witwen übersehen wurden
in der täglichen Handreichung.
Apostelgeschichte 6,1
