An example of Babylonian text, in its original ‘cuneiform’ script from 5,000 years ago, then transliterated into our modern Latin alphabet, then translated into English. Attributed to a ‘Sapiku of Borsippa’ it is a prediction of the future. Sapiku was a 7th century BCE astrologer and priest who was an advisor to the king of that time.

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning,
We shall remember them.
