ZWEITE PRIESTER UND SPRECHER
Bewahret euch vor Weibertücken:
Dies ist des Bundes erste Pflicht!
Manch weiser Mann liess sich berücken,
Er fehlte, und versah sichs nicht.
Verlassen sah er sich am Ende,
Vergolten seine Treu mit Hohn!
Vergebens rang er seine Hände,
Tod und Verzweiflung war sein Lohn.

Beyde Priester ab.

English Libretto or Translation:

FIRST AND SECOND PRIESTS
Beware of womanly wiles:
this is the brotherhood's first duty!
Many a wise man has been beguiled,
has erred and not realized it.
He has found himself abandoned in the end,
his faithfulness repaid with scorn!
In vain he has wrung his hands,
death and despair were his reward.

Exeunt Priests.
