    الصلاة جيدة حقًا ، ولكن بينما يدعو الآلهة يجب على الإنسان أن يمد يده.

    Η προσευχή είναι πράγματι καλή, αλλά ενώ καλεί τους θεούς, ένας άνθρωπος θα πρέπει ο ίδιος να δώσει ένα χέρι.

    la oración en verdad es buena, pero al invocar a los dioses, un hombre debería echar una mano.

    la prière est certes bonne, mais tout en invitant les dieux, un homme doit lui-même prêter main forte.

    प्रार्थना वास्तव में अच्छी है, लेकिन देवताओं को पुकारते समय मनुष्य को स्वयं एक हाथ उधार देना चाहिए।

    orationis vero est bonum, sed in se vocantem in deum debet homo manum porrigunt.
