Pistyn' is in the Ukraine now, but at the time of Meite Rifka's birth (which this document records), it was Romania. The column headings are in German and Romanian (I believe), corresponding to the same headings as on, so I'm not too worried about those.

I would primarily like to know what the first row of text says, but any translation is appreciated.

Just to let you know that the column headings are in both German and (below that) Polish. This has been confirmed through Google Translate (which is a great tool).

Also, it is not clear as to which first row of text you would like translated. Is it across horizontally, or is it down vertically? I will try to help out once I know what you need.....Jo

1) 125
2) 27. August 1887 Kosów 177
3) 27. August 1887 1892 Kosów 177
4) Meite Rifka (2 Namen = 2 names)
5) illegitimate
6) female
7) Breine Niel

Breine Niel, ritually married with Chan Leib Leider, musician in Kosów, daughter of David and Jette Nyel, deceased "insasse" from Pistyń
8) Abraham Klau
9) [no entry]
10) Feige Nal Hebamme=midwife in Kosów

Notes: The surnames are hard to decipher, a higher resolution image would help.
I could not find out what "Insasse" means in this context. It appears fairly often as an occupation in Galician documents. I think it is some kind of a resident. According to the historical Brockhaus encyclopedia, "Insasse" is a resident who has not citizen's rights in this municipality:
