The crooked made straight and the rough places plain;

          The pools shall he filled and the worn renewed;

The needy shall receive and the rich shall be perplexed.

So the Wise man cherishes the One, as a standard to the world.

          Not displaying himself he is famous;

Not as asserting himself; he is distinguished;

          Not boasting his powers, he is effective;;

Taking no pride in himself he is chief.

Because he is no competitor, No one in all the world

          Can compete with him.

The saying of the men of old is not in vain:

          ‘The crooked shall be made straight”

To be perfect, return to it.
