    vycvičte fíkový strom tak, jak má jít, a když jste staří, posaďte se pod jeho stín.

    entrena a la higuera por su camino, y cuando seas viejo siéntate a su sombra.

    가는 길에 무화과 나무를 훈련시키고, 나이가 들면 그늘 아래에 앉습니다.

    натренируйте фиговое дерево так, как оно должно идти, а когда вы станете старым, сядьте в тени этого.

    按照应该去的方式训练一棵无花果树,当你老了,坐在树荫下。
