ਜਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਲੇਖੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਤਾਂ ਸਭਿ ਨਿਰਾਫਲ ਕਾਮ ॥੧॥
jaaN pat laykhai naa pavai taaN sabh niraafal kaam. ||1||
But, if this honor is of no account in God’s court then all of your ostentatious show is useless. ||1||
Lakini iwapo heshima hii haina manufaa katika mahakama ya Mungu basi onyesho lako lote la kifahari ni bure.

ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਜਗੁ ਧੰਧਾ ॥
har kay naam binaa jag DhanDhaa.
Without meditation on God’s Name, all worldly attachments lead to entanglement.
Bila kutafakari kuhusu Jina la Mungu, viambatisho vyote vya kidunia vinaongoza kwa kunaswa.

ਜੇ ਬਹੁਤਾ ਸਮਝਾਈਐ ਭੋਲਾ ਭੀ ਸੋ ਅੰਧੋ ਅੰਧਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jay bahutaa samjaa-ee-ai bholaa bhee so anDho anDhaa. ||1|| rahaa-o.

One may earn thousands, collect thousands and spend thousands of dollars; thousands may come and thousands may go.
Mtu anaweza kuchuma maelfu, kukusanya maelfu na kutumia maelfu ya dola; maelfu wanaweza kuja na maelfu wanaweza kuenda.

ਜਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਲੇਖੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਤਾਂ ਜੀਅ ਕਿਥੈ ਫਿਰਿ ਪਾਹਿ ॥੨॥
jaaN pat laykhai naa pavai taaN jee-a kithai fir paahi. ||2||
But, if this does not bring honor in God’s court then one dosn’t know where such souls will find rest. ||2||
Lakini, iwapo hii haileti heshima katika mahakama ya Mungu basi mtu hajui ambapo roho kama hizo zinapata mapumziko.

ਲਖ ਸਾਸਤ ਸਮਝਾਵਣੀ ਲਖ ਪੰਡਿਤ ਪੜਹਿ ਪੁਰਾਣ ॥
lakh saasat samjhaavanee lakh pandit parheh puraan.
The pandits may read and explain holy books like Shastras and puranas thousands of times and earn respect of the audience,
Walimu wa busara wanasoma na kueleza vitabu takatifu kama Shastras na Puranas maelfu ya nyakati na kupata heshima kutoka kwa hadhira,

ਜਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਲੇਖੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਤਾਂ ਸਭੇ ਕੁਪਰਵਾਣ ॥੩॥
jaaN pat laykhai naa pavai taaN sabhay kuparvaan. ||3||
but, all these efforts are useless if his honor is not approved in God’s court. ||3||
lakini, jitihada hizi zote ni bure iwapo heshima yake haiidhinishwi katika mahakama ya Mungu.

ਸਚ ਨਾਮਿ ਪਤਿ ਊਪਜੈ ਕਰਮਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਰਤਾਰੁ ॥
sach naam pat oopjai karam naam kartaar.
True honor is attained only by meditating on God’s Name and Creator’s Name is realized by His grace only.
Heshima ya kweli inapatwa tu kwa kutafakari kuhusu Jina la Mungu na Jina la Muumba linagunduliwa kwa neema yake pekee.

ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਜੇ ਵਸੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਦਰੀ ਪਾਰੁ ॥੪॥੧॥੩੧॥
ahinis hirdai jay vasai naanak nadree paar. ||4||1||31
O’ Nanak, if day and night one realizes the presence of God’s Name in the heart, then by His grace one swims across the worldly ocean of vices. ||4||1||31||
Ee Nanak, iwapo mchana na usiku mtu agundue uwepo wa Jina la Mungu moyoni, basi kwa neema yake mtu anaogelea akivuka bahari ya kidunia ya dhambi.

ik lokee hor chhamichharee baraahman vat pind khaa-ay.
The Brahmin offers rice balls to the angels and the dead ancestors, but it is he who eats them in the end.
Brahmin anawasilisha wali-mviringo kwa malaika na wahenga waliokufa, lakini ni yeye anayezikula mwishowe.
