- 3 καὶ ἐγώ δὲ γενόμενος ἔσπασα τὸν κοινὸν ἀέρα
καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν ὁμοιοπαθῆ κατέπεσον γῆν,
πρώτην φωνὴν τὴν ὁμοίαν πᾶσιν ἴσα κλαίων·
And when I was born, I breathed in the common air
and on the like-natured earth I fell
my first sound, like everyone else, crying
4 ἐν σπαργάνοις ἀνετράφην καὶ ἐν φροντίσιν·
5 οὐδεὶς γὰρ βασιλεὺς ἑτέραν ἔσχε γενέσεως ἀρχήν,
6 μία δὲ πάντων εἴσοδος εἰς τὸν βίον, ἔξοδός τε ἴση.
In swaddling clothes I was nursed, and with care,
for no king has a different origin of birth
all have one entrance into life and the same exit
I have tried to keep the word order whenever possible so you can read along with me if you like.
