Wisdom 7:3
When I was born, I gulped in the same air as everyone else. I dropped out onto the same earth that all people share. I let out my first cry that was just like the sound anyone else makes.
And being born I drew in the common air, and fell upon the earth, that is made alike, and the first voice which I uttered was crying, as all others do.
When I was born, I came into the world like anyone else. I began to breathe the same air we all breathe; and like everyone else, the first sound I made was a cry.
And I too, when born, inhaled the common air, and fell upon the kindred earth; wailing, I uttered that first sound common to all.
And when I was born, I began to breathe the common air, and fell upon the kindred earth; my first sound was a cry, as is true of all.

And I was born, and took common air, and in like manner I fell down into (or onto) the earth made; and I weeping sent out the first voice, like all men. [And I born took common air, and like manner fell down into the made earth; and the first voice, like all, I put out weeping.]
