The Lord Himself leads the people of the world astray; they tell lies, and by telling lies, they eat poison.

chalan saar na jaananee kaam karodh vis vadhaaeaa |

They do not recognize the ultimate reality, that we all must go; they continue to cultivate the poisons of sexual desire and anger.

Those who praise the Lord in the early hours of the morning and meditate on Him single-mindedly,

ਸੇਈ ਪੂਰੇ ਸਾਹ ਵਖਤੈ ਉਪਰਿ ਲੜਿ ਮੁਏ ॥
seee poore saah vakhatai upar larr mue |

are the perfect kings; at the right time, they die fighting.

ਦੂਜੈ ਬਹੁਤੇ ਰਾਹ ਮਨ ਕੀਆ ਮਤੀ ਖਿੰਡੀਆ ॥
doojai bahute raah man keea matee khinddeea |

In the second watch, the focus of the mind is scattered in all sorts of ways.

ਬਹੁਤੁ ਪਏ ਅਸਗਾਹ ਗੋਤੇ ਖਾਹਿ ਨ ਨਿਕਲਹਿ ॥
bahut pe asagaah gote khaeh na nikaleh |

So many fall into the bottomless pit; they are dragged under, and they cannot get out again.
