Bis Löwen ihre Historiker haben, werden Geschichten über die Jagd den Jäger immer verherrlichen.

пока у львов не появятся историки, рассказы об охоте всегда будут прославлять охотника.

సింహాలు తమ చరిత్రకారులను కలిగి ఉన్నంత వరకు, వేట కథలు ఎల్లప్పుడూ వేటగాడిని కీర్తిస్తాయి.

до тих пір, поки леви не мають своїх істориків, казки про полювання завжди будуть прославляти мисливця.
