Translation

a2 for twelve years I gave alms, all my possessions have come to an end
a6 ... I do not have even a single gold piece ...
a7 ... I will make your great wishes come true ...
b1 ... On the seventh day, with sorrow and pain, I will split your head into seven parts. Pay attention, you shameless old man! ...
b4 ... Purṇabhadre says: (having seen) that the noble Metrak will leave his home in order to go to the Buddha-god the teacher

a3 [I] do not [even] have five copper coins—how could I now give you five hundred gold pieces? (cf 45) (Peyrot 2013c: 231)
a5 If you do not give me (the money), the rich man will surely have me shut up in prison again! (cf 45) (Peyrot 2013c: 246)
a6 I do not have a single gold piece—how am I going to have five hundred? (Peyrot 2013c: 231)
a7 If, however, you do not give it to me, … (Peyrot 2013c: 247, 633)
a7 If you give me (the money), then [it is] good [and] I will fulfil your great wishes! (cf 283; see also 45) (Peyrot 2013c: 247, 633)
a7 Wenn du [sie] mir gibst, [ist es] gut, [und] ich werde dir [deine] großen Wünsche erfüllen; wenn du [sie] mir aber nicht gibst, [dann] ... (Schmidt 1974: 134)
b1 Within one week … of your mind … I will cause [lit. bring] your heart to break. On the seventh day, with sorrow and pain, I will split your head into seven parts. (cf 45, 47) (Peyrot 2013c: 634)
b7 Make effort so that Bādhari the Brahmin of Dakṣiṇāpatha will fully understand the rising of the Buddha, the teacher, and that he [Bādhari] indeed in this (way) … (so that) the (noble) Maitreya will immediately come to the Buddha, the teacher. (cf 51) (Peyrot 2013c: 652)
