The eternal flame of a family vanishes
When eclipsed by that dark cloud called laziness.
Let those who wish their family to be a noble family
Call laziness "laziness" and live without it.
A man whose actions are ruled by ruinous indolence
Will see his family fall before his own destrution.
Their family will perish and their vices will thrive when men,
Ensnared in sloth, do not put forth earnest exertion.
Procrastination, forgetfulness, laziness and sleep - these four
form the coveted ship which bears men to their destined ruin.
Seldom do men possessed by sloth achieve anything special,
Even when supported by the earth's wealthy proprietors.
The lazy ones, inept in noble exertion,
Invite sharp scoldings and must endure the shame of scornful words.
If lassitude is allowed to live in aristocrats,
They will be forced into servitude under foes.
Disgrace that has come upon a man and his family
Will disappear the moment he casts out laziness.
A king who is devoid of indolence will procure thereby,
All that cosmic province measured by God's immeasurable strides.
