[Those] lamb-skins and sheep-skins,
With their five braidings of white silk !
They have retired from the court to take their their meal ;
Easy are they and self-possesed.

[Those] lamb-skins and sheep-skins,
With their five seams wrought with white silk !
Easy are they and self-possessed ;
They have retired from the court to take their their meal.

The seams of [those] lamb-skins and sheep-skins,
The five joinings wrought with white silk !
Easy are they and self-possessed ;
They have retired to take their their meal from the court.
