Ich wandte mich und sahe an

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Ich wandte mich und sahe an
Alle, die Unrecht leiden unter der Sonne;
Und siehe, da waren Tränen derer,
Die Unrecht litten und hatten keinen Tröster;
Und die ihnen Unrecht täten, waren zu mächtig,
Daß sie keinen Tröster haben konnten.

Da lobte ich die Toten,
Die schon gestorben waren 
Mehr als die Lebendigen,
Die noch das Leben hatten;
Und der noch nicht ist, ist besser, als alle beide,
Und des Bösen nicht inne wird, 
Das unter der Sonne geschieht.

Io mi volsi a considerare

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Io mi volsi a considerare 
Tutti quelli che, sotto il sole, hanno patito ingiustizia;
E ho visto che hanno versato lacrime
Senza ricevere alcun conforto;
E quelli che loro fecero torto erano troppo potenti,
per avere chi li consolasse.
 
E allora lodai i morti,
che già erano scomparsi,
più dei vivi,
che ancora continuavano la loro esistenza;
e più fortunati di entrambi stimai quelli ancora non nati
che non si accorgono del male
che si fa sotto il sole.
