From the Bible, Johannes 21, (19?)/20-24. According to the Hindemith Foundation the preface in German in the score above by Martin Luther says that this is "19-24" of Johannes while in the score I provided above is written "20-24". Either H.F. is to blame or the score above is incorrect in the assertion. I have never read the bible so I cannot make the assertion to which one is correct for the preface but I will assume the one in the score is correct as it is the first edition based on the year when it was published.
