May God forgive him, his parents and the father of his parents and those who read this book, those who listen to it, those who correct its mistakes, and those who invoke God to grant him [the copyist] mercy and acceptance. The copying of this book was completed on blessed Sunday [name of the month not mentioned] of the year 1114 [1703 or 1704].
