Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Corporalis exercitatio paululum habet utilitatis
at pietas ad omnia utilis est,
ut quæ promissiones habeat vitæ praesentis et futuræ.

English.png English translation

Bodily exercise profiteth little:
but godliness is profitable unto all things,
which hath the promise of the life present, and of that that is to come.
(trans. Geneva Bible)
