Schleicher's Fable in Proto-North Semitic

Han-kʰabśu wa-han-pʰarašū

Kʰabśum, ðū lahu lā hawiya ṣ́amrum, raʔaya pʰarašīm: yagrur ʔaħadum minhumū markʰabatʰam þaqūlam, wa-yaħmil ʔaħadum ħimlam gadālam, wa-yaħmil mahīram aħadum ʔināšam. Wa-yakūl han-kʰabśu: Marra lī han-libbu, bi-raʔātʰī ʔināšam rākʰibam pʰarašīm. Wa-yakūlū han-pʰarašū: Šamaʕ han-kʰabśa! Marra lanā han-libbu, bi-raʔātʰinā ðā: ʔināšum han-baʕlu yaʕśiyu lahu malbašatʰam ħamīmatʰam min ṣ́amri han-kʰabśī. Wa-lā li-han-kʰabśi ṣ́amrum. Bi-šamāʕi han-kʰabśi ðā, yabraħu ʔila han-śadiyi.
