Writing on the wall

In the area of Christianshavn (Christian's Harbour) in Copenhagen I found this sign in Danish on one of the old houses. Translated it says: Lord, Your judgments are incomprehensible and Your ways are past understanding. 1765AD. There's no explanation as to why this is the case, but maybe someone lost a house in a fire or a child due to sickness. Anyway, someone was clearly not content with his or her lot in life. This kind of signs can be found on many of the houses in the old areas of Copenhagen.
