God surveyed the hills,
Where the oaks and yu were thinned,
And paths made through the firs and cypresses.
God, who had raised the State, raised up a proper ruler for it; -
王季From the time of Da-bo and king Ju [this was done].
王季Now this king Ji,
In his heart was full of brotherly duty.
Full of duty to his elder brother,
He gave himself the more to promote the prosperity [of the country],
And secured to him the glory [of his act].
祿He accepted his dignity, and did not lose it,
And [ere long his family] possessed the whole kingdom.
