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."
