I can read it. :) But I also spent most of a semester studying the language.
Luther was writing in Frühneuhochdeutsch:
The English version of the article is a little better, since it actually
gives side by side examples like you gave:
German was still in flux between Middle High and New High. And printing
houses didn't standardize on a single orthography for some time. But
between Gutenberg & Luther, standardization occured quite rapidly.
It appears there's no ISO 639-3 code for Fnhd. I'll draw up a change
request to see if we can get a new code. If not, we should add a subtag
to the language of GerLut1545 to separate it from the real Nhd. material.
