    humileco estas virto ĉiuj predikas, neniu praktikas, kaj tamen ĉiuj kontentas aŭdi. la mastro opinias ĝin bona doktrino por sia servanto, por laikoj por la pastraro kaj por pastroj por laikoj.

    L'humilité est une vertu que tous prêchent, aucune pratique, et pourtant tout le monde est content d'entendre. le maître pense que c'est une bonne doctrine pour son serviteur, les laïcs pour le clergé et le clergé pour les laïcs.

    विनम्रता एक उपदेश है जो सभी उपदेश देते हैं, कोई भी अभ्यास नहीं है, और फिर भी हर कोई सुनने के लिए संतुष्ट है। गुरु इसे अपने सेवक के लिए अच्छा सिद्धांत मानता है, पादरी के लिए धृष्टता और हवस के लिए पादरी।

    ನಮ್ರತೆಯು ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಉಪದೇಶಗಳು, ಯಾವುದೂ ಅಭ್ಯಾಸವಲ್ಲ, ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬರೂ ಕೇಳಲು ತೃಪ್ತರಾಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಯಜಮಾನನು ತನ್ನ ಸೇವಕನಿಗೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಸಿದ್ಧಾಂತ, ಪಾದ್ರಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಗಣ್ಯರು ಮತ್ತು ಪಾದ್ರಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಸಿದ್ಧಾಂತವೆಂದು ಭಾವಿಸುತ್ತಾನೆ.

    ydmykhet er en dyd alle forkynner, ingen praktiserer, og likevel er alle tilfredse med å høre. mesteren synes det er en god lære for sin tjener, laeten for presteskapet og presteskapet for laeten.

    వినయం అనేది అన్ని బోధించే ధర్మం, ఏదీ సాధన కాదు, ఇంకా ప్రతి ఒక్కరూ వినడానికి సంతృప్తి చెందుతారు. మాస్టర్ తన సేవకుడికి మంచి సిద్ధాంతం, మతాధికారులకు లౌకికులు, మరియు మతాధికారులకు మతాధికారులు భావిస్తారు.

    谦卑是一种普遍的美德,没有任何实践,但每个人都满足于倾听。主人认为这对他的仆人,神职人员的平信徒和平信徒的神职人员来说是好主义。
