The sample is from the pay records of the the ship Huis Zilverstein - VOC Company in the Netherlands - 1680's.

I will attach the entire page. It seems that the top part is written in Netherlands but rest in a different language.

Thank youd2c6769ed08d315a793d78152a048402c32eaea305a654906a517784265009ae.jpg.0a9d62cd5efcf0eccf15f1ad523ac43d.jpg
