Here is your requested translation:
"In ancient astronomy, it has been corrected that every planet will orbit in its own circle, and will come back to its original point every few years. This is known as the "orbital period". Because each planet and satellite has a different orbital period, the list below shows the greatest to the lowest in the solar system:
Saturn: 29 years
Jupiter: 12 years
Mars 687 days
Sun: 365 days
Venus: 225 days
Neptune: 88 days
Moon: 28 days
The Egyptians were the first to know that the daylight lasts for 12 hours, but it was only in 1000 BC, the Palestinians described a day with 24 hours, using the plants for timing purposes; the first hour as Saturn, the second hour as Jupiter, in which the cycle continues again and again, with the 7 deities (above) assigned to the hours each day.
It was then that this routine was brought to Rome years after, when the Romans changed it, and was brought to Germany, where it was changed again by its own culture and language. This routine was changed a final time, when it was introduced to England, where it had modified to today's standards.
