Do not take to gambling even if you can win,
Or your wins will be like the baited hook that the fish swallows.
To win once, a gambler loses a hundred times.
Is that the way to win either happiness or prosperity?
If a person should increasingly keep calling his bets on the
rolling dice, the riches he had amassed and his sources of
revenue, both will leave him and go elsewhere.
Gambling brings on many woes and erodes a man's good name.
There is nothing which ends in more wretched poverty.
Those enamored of the dice, the gambling hall
And their lucky hand lose everything in their desire to win.
Gambling is misfortune's other name, and fools ensnared
By her will sugger an empty stomach and a surfeit of sorrow.
Spending time in the gambling hall wastes
Ancestral wealth and diminishes an individual's worth.
Gambling will consume a man's wealth and corrupt his honesty.
It will end his benevolence and bring on him misery.
Those who take to gambling's fickle gain forfeit these five:
Raiments, riches, rations, renown and urudition.
The gambler's passion increases with the losses incurred.
Even so does the soul's craving for life grow with the griefs suffered.
