1 泂酌:
酌彼行潦、挹彼注兹、可以餴饎。
岂弟君子、民之父母 。
Jiong Zhuo:
Take the pool-water from a distance;
Draw it into one vessel and let it flow to another,
And it may be used to stream rice or millet.
[How much more should] the happy and courteous sovereign,
Be the parent of the people!

2 泂酌:
酌彼行潦、挹彼注兹、可以濯罍。
岂弟君子、民之攸归 。
Jiong Zhuo:
Take the pool-water from a distance;
Draw it into one vessel and let it flow to another,
And it may be used to wash a [spirit] vase.
[How much more should] the happy and courteous sovereign,
Be the centre of attraction to the people!

3 泂酌:
酌彼行潦、挹彼注兹、可以濯溉。
岂弟君子、民之攸塈 。
Jiong Zhuo:
Take the pool-water from a distance;
Draw it into one vessel and let it flow to another,
And it may be used for all purpose of cleansing.
[How much more should] the happy and courteous sovereign,
Be the centre of rest to the people!
