Line 1: Without blame.

Line 2: One kills three foxes in the field
And receives a yellow arrow.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

And nontheless rides in a carriage,
He thereby encourages robbers to draw near.
Perseverance leads to humiliation.

It brings good fortune.
Thus he proves to inferior men that he is in earnest.
