لقد قُتلت عدة مرات على ركبتي بالإقتناع العارم بأنه لم يكن لدي أي مكان آخر لأذهب إليه. حكمتي الخاصة ، وأن كل شيء عني بدا غير كاف لهذا اليوم.

Die überwältigende Überzeugung, dass ich sonst nirgendwo hingehen konnte, hat mich oft in die Knie gezwungen. meine eigene Weisheit und die von mir um mich herum schien für den Tag unzureichend zu sein.

הונעתי פעמים רבות על ברכיי מהאמונה המוחצת שלא היה לי לאן ללכת. החוכמה שלי, וזה של כל מה שנראה סביבי נראה בלתי מספיק ליום.

由於我無處可去的壓倒性信念,我被多次跪倒在地。我自己的智慧,以及我所有的智慧似乎都不足以應付這一天。
