    Gott schenke mir die Gelassenheit, die Dinge zu akzeptieren, die ich nicht ändern kann, den Mut, die Dinge zu ändern, die ich kann, und die Weisheit, den Unterschied zu erkennen.

    θεός μου παραχωρήστε την ηρεμία να δεχτεί τα πράγματα που δεν μπορώ να αλλάξω, το θάρρος να αλλάξω τα πράγματα που μπορώ και η σοφία να γνωρίζω τη διαφορά.

    Боже, дай мне спокойствие, чтобы принять то, что я не могу изменить, смелость изменить то, что я могу, и мудрость, чтобы понять разницу.

    גאָט געבן מיר די קלאָרקייַט צו אָננעמען די טינגז איך קען נישט טוישן, די מוט צו טוישן די טינגז וואָס איך קען, און די חכמה צו וויסן די חילוק.
