ਧ੝ਰਿਗ੝ ਤਿਨਾ ਕਾ ਜੀਵਿਆ ਜਿ ਲਿਖਿ ਲਿਖਿ ਵੇਚਹਿ ਨਾਉ ॥ ਖੇਤੀ ਜਿਨ ਕੀ ਉਜੜੈ ਖਲਵਾੜੇ ਕਿਆ ਥਾਉ ॥ ਸਚੈ ਸਰਮੈ ਬਾਹਰੇ ਅਗੈ ਲਹਹਿ ਨ ਦਾਦਿ ॥
Ḏẖarig ṯinĝ kĝ jīvi▫ĝ jė likẖ likẖ vecẖėh nĝ▫o. Kẖeṯī jin kī ujṛai kẖalvĝṛe ki▫ĝ thĝ▫o. Sacẖai sarmai bĝhre agai lahėh na ḝĝḝ.
Cursed are the lives of those who read and write the Lord's Name to sell it.

Their crop is devastated - what harvest will they have? Lacking truth and humility, they shall not be appreciated in the world hereafter.
