Tipitaka >> Sutta Pitaka >> Samyutta Nikaya >> Sanamana Sutta

Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna

A certain deity worshipped the Blessed One, stood on a side and said this stanza:

"Of the two-footed a warrior is foremost, of the four-footed a bull,
Of wives a maiden is foremost, of sons the first born."

"Of the two-footed the all Enlightend One, is foremost,
Of the four-footed the thoroughbred,
Of wives, she who listens and of sons the loyal one is foremost."
