    Denke nicht an die Gläubigen, die alle deine Worte und Taten loben, sondern an diejenigen, die deine Fehler freundlich tadeln.

    no pienses en los fieles que alaban todas tus palabras y acciones, sino en aquellos que amablemente reprochan tus faltas.

    ne pense pas à ces fidèles qui louent toutes tes paroles et tes actions, mais à ceux qui réprouvent gentiment tes fautes.

    jangan berpikir orang-orang beriman yang memuji semua perkataan dan tindakanmu, tetapi orang-orang yang berbaik hati menegur kesalahanmu.

    non pensare a quei fedeli che lodano tutte le tue parole e azioni, ma quelli che gentilmente rimproverano i tuoi difetti.

    당신의 모든 말과 행동을 찬양하는 충실한 사람들이 아니라 당신의 잘못을 친절하게 책정하는 사람들을 생각하십시오.

    bütün sözlerini ve eylemlerini övenleri değil, hatalarını nazikçe azarlayanları sadık san.
