The men of Qing are in Peng ;
The chariot with its team in mail ever moves about ;
The two spears in it, with their ornaments, rising, one above the other.
So do they roam about the He.

The men of Qing are in Xiao ;
The chariot with its team in mail looks martial ;
And the two spears in it, with their hooks, rise one above the other.
So do they saunter about by the He.

The men of Qing are in Zhou ;
The mailed team of the chariot prance proudly.
[The driver] on the left wheels it about, and [the spearman] on the right brandishes his weapon,
While the general in the middle looks pleased.
