The fretted waters,
Do not carry on their current a bundle of thorns.
Few are our brethren ;
There are only I and you.
Do not believe what people say ;
They are deceiving you.

The fretted waters,
Do not carry on their current a bundle of firewood.
Few are our brethren ;
There are only we two.
Do not believe what people say ;
They are not to be trusted.

Legge 92

Le faible courant du ruisseau
n'entraîne pas fagot d'épines !
Jusqu'au bout vivre comme frères,
seuls nous le pouvons moi et toi !
Ne te fie pas aux dires des gens !
pour sûr ils iront te mentir !

Le faible courant du ruisseau
n'entraîne pas fagot de branches !
Jusqu'au bout vivre comme frères,
seuls nous le pouvons tous les deux !
Ne te fie pas aux dires des gens !
pour sûr ils sont sans bonne foi !

Granet XXXIII.
