Those who are free from arrogance, anger, and lust
Will prosper in great dignity.
Avarice, arrogance and crude amusements are flaws
In the characters of an unfit king.
Though their fault is as small as a millet seed,
To those who dread disgrace it will appear as large as a palm tree.
His own faults are a man's mortal enemies.
Therefore, to guard against them is life's gravest concern.
The fortune of a man who does not guard against failings before they
Manifest will perish like a stack of straw before a flaming fire.
What fault exists in a king who eradicates his own faults
Before examining the faults in others?
The wealth of one who, out of avarice, fails to do what should be done
Will vanish without the slightest vestige.
When faults are reckoned, one remains apart-
The greedy grasping known as avariciousness.
Never indulge in admiring yourself.
Never desire deeds that do not benefit others.
Delighting in life's pleasures privately
Nullifies the conspiring schemes of foes.
