About the text

  • Author: Unknown
  • “Although the librettist is unknown, a text from Picander’s 1728 cycle, Ich bin vergnügt mit meinem Stande, corresponds so closely with the present text…that some relationship between the two must be assumed” (Dürr 2005, 230).
  • Scripture readings for the day: 1 Corinthians 9:24–10:5; Matthew 20:1–20:16
