When that the people taught they had
There came to them doutles:
Priests and rulers as men nye mad,
And eke the Saduces.

Whome it dyd greve that they should move
The people and them leade:
That Jesus Christ, by powre above
Should ryse up from the deade.

German.png German translation

Als sie aber zum Volk redeten,
traten zu ihnen die Priester
und der Hauptmann des Tempels und die Sadduzäer
(sie verdross, dass sie das Volk lehrten
und verkündigten an Jesu die Auferstehung von den Toten).
Apostelgeschichte 4, 1-2
