Smrt je golema.
U njezinoj svojini
smo nasmijanih usta.
I mi sred zivota, kad to nam se cini,
nama u sredini
Der Tod ist groß,
Wir sind die Seinen
Wenn wir uns mitten im Leben meinen,
wagt er zu weinen
mitten in uns.
Death is great.
We are his completely
with laughing eyes.
When we feel ourselves immersed in life,
he dares to weep
immersed in us.

In the Judeo-Christian region: Mt. Sinai in the Sinai peninsula, the peak where Moses received the Ten Commandments.
Saint Catherine's Monastery is a monastery on the Sinai peninsula, at the foot of Mount Sinai, in Egypt.
It was built by order of the Emperor Justinian between 527 and 565 enclosing the Chapel of the Burning Bush ordered built by Helena,
the mother of Constantine I, at the site where Moses is supposed to have seen the burning bush.
The bush is purportedly alive and on the grounds.
Though it is commonly known as Saint Catherine's, the actual name of the monastery is the Monastery of the Transfiguration.
The monastery library preserves the second largest collection of early codices and manuscripts in the world,
outnumbered only by the Vatican Library.
