Translation

a1The hero says: "Now take care of the poorn2 son of the lord! The mechanic...
a2... now, (compared) to the one who is not to be revered, the so called "without ttuwerñe" appears as yätkaskemane, not revering (him). Indeed, lord...
a3... circle of flowers..." The hero says: In the Cāpīce-tune: That is just so: Like brandy, she is terrible (?).
a3+Like what will all this reverence and love be?
a4In the loving pleasure of woman and man, someone uninvitable compared to an invitable one (?) is like brandy (?).
a5The mechanic says: "Therefore, bear my burden!" The hero says:
a5+"So it will be!"
a6The friendly hero says: "Oh, how to act now here?" Having thought (about it), he says: "I understood..."
b1The mechanic says:
b1+"And for what reason do you mitreat me this way?
b2Who could she be, endowed with reason?n3 She will hold me near as a dear one (?)"
b2+The hero lowers his face because of the wish to also follow (?).
b3"If you..., there is no trust in me for you. Therefore, we will go together." The mechanic says:
b4"So it will be!" The friendly hero says: "This can be tolerated. (?)" In the Śuddhodaññe-tune: There is an obstacle in taking a stand (?) for him.
b5It would be even more for her. She is eśäñña. If (he would) not (be) together with me in coming, sorrow with shame ererätse would befall him.
b5+The hero says:
b6"Indeed, she would be that much more beloved. May we enter this painted śämprāyäśke." The hero trembled. The mechanic...

Commentary

Linguistic commentary

n1star-ccä for star-c.

Philological commentary

n2Assuming that aikare is used like TA ekro here.
n3For the translation of śle pälskoñña, cf. THT 278 b1kuse su tākoy ; śle palsko ;. The only difference is that we have an adjective in -ññe here.
