khatree braahaman pitth de chhodde har naamadeo leea mukh laae |3|

The Lord turned His back on the high-class Kh'shaatriyas and Brahmins, and showed His face to Naam Dayv. ||3||

tinaee antar har aaraadhiaa jin kau dhur likhiaa likhat lilaaraa |

They alone worship and adore the Lord deep within, who are blessed with such pre-ordained destiny from the very beginning of time.

ਤਿਨ ਕੀ ਬਖੀਲੀ ਕੋਈ ਕਿਆ ਕਰੇ ਜਿਨ ਕਾ ਅੰਗੁ ਕਰੇ ਮੇਰਾ ਹਰਿ ਕਰਤਾਰਾ ॥੧॥

Anyone who tries to compete with them is a fool; his face shall be blackened here and hereafter. ||2||

se bhagat se sevakaa jinaa har naam piaaraa |

They alone are devotees, and they alone are selfless servants, who love the Lord's Name.

ਤਿਨ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਤੇ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਈਐ ਸਿਰਿ ਨਿੰਦਕ ਕੈ ਪਵੈ ਛਾਰਾ ॥੩॥
tin kee sevaa te har paaeeai sir nindak kai pavai chhaaraa |3|

By their selfless service, they find the Lord, while ashes fall on the heads of the slanderers. ||3||

ਜਿਸੁ ਘਰਿ ਵਿਰਤੀ ਸੋਈ ਜਾਣੈ ਜਗਤ ਗੁਰ ਨਾਨਕ ਪੂਛਿ ਕਰਹੁ ਬੀਚਾਰਾ ॥
jis ghar viratee soee jaanai jagat gur naanak poochh karahu beechaaraa |

He alone knows this, who experiences it within the home of his own self. Ask Guru Nanak, the Guru of the world, and reflect upon it.

ਚਹੁ ਪੀੜੀ ਆਦਿ ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਬਖੀਲੀ ਕਿਨੈ ਨ ਪਾਇਓ ਹਰਿ ਸੇਵਕ ਭਾਇ ਨਿਸਤਾਰਾ ॥੪॥੨॥੯॥
chahu peerree aad jugaad bakheelee kinai na paaeio har sevak bhaae nisataaraa |4|2|9|

Throughout the four generations of the Gurus, from the beginning of time and throughout the ages, no one has ever found the Lord by back-biting and undermining. Only by serving the Lord with love, is one emancipated. ||4||2||9||
