[1.] Would you be a doctor quickly without great effort? You can do all skills on earth, so that [you never lack anything. That means] much in few hours found in the abc’s, as you see here.
2. A shall leave all things, evil speaks the B, C the cross with joy held on to, humility gives the D, E leads to eternal life, F gives joy to the heart, patience gives the G.
3. H enjoins to live holy, I to be fervent, K gives short words, L loves God alone, M shall be and remain moderate, N pass [the time profitably], O to be without falsehood.
4. P to have the obligation of love, [Q shall be resourceful], R to have a pure heart, S to be in gentleness, [T shall be virtuous in learning, U shall] submissively hear, W shall be alert,
[5. X Xerxes well understood who was the king,] As he turned to God, [Loved him openly, He] will finally redeem him From the time and all evil, [Rescue] out of danger.
[6.] Z at the end of the ABC’s also means the time which turns to eternity. You shall avoid the temporal and prepare yourself on the road to eternity.
[7.] If you cannot say all the letters at once, I want to tell you the content briefly and all at once, in the midst of their number.
[8.] Together the letters mean love God alone; get this together rightly deep into your heart. If you have understood this well so you can be in all lands the best doctor.

So much from me, Jacob Beudelman, in the year of your Lord [def.] 1796, the 14th of March.
