|~ Genieße was dir Gott bescheiden ~|
|The verse on this stein was written in the 18th Century by Christian Fürchtegott Gellert and entitled "Zufriedenheit mit seinem Stande" (Satisfaction with your situation). The relationship with "Dachau" (also on the stein under the verse) which is a suburb of Munich is unclear. The stein is from the 20th century.|
Genieße was dir Gott bescheiden.
Entbehre gern was du nicht hast.
Ein jeder Stand hat seine Frieden.
Ein jeder Stand hat seiner Last!
Enjoy what your God has allotted you.
Do without happily what you don't have.
Each situation has its tranquillity.
Each situation has its burden.
