OLB words in NW-European languages

Fragments from OLB, p.98.
(with improvised translations, staying close to the original)
Ur-alda (world, Allah, overold-one) is the oldest-of-all or over-oldest,
because that created all things.
Ur-alda is all in all,
because that is eternal and infinite.
Ur-alda is everywhere present,
but nowhere to be seen.
Therefore the being is named 'Ghost'.
All that we can see of him are
the creations that come through his life (?),
and go away again.
Because out of Ur-alda come all
things and return all things.
Out of Ur-alda comes the beginning and
the end of all things go up in him.
