The God of Summer (the Red Emperor) Protects the Root (of Origin)

The First Yellow Emperor who is god of the Center (Huang Di Shen Nong)
keeps watch from within the Center so as to defend the Foetus,
[for it is] abominable not to produce life.
The 'Cerulian Heaven' Demon King (Qing Tian Mo Wang)
[Treats] luxuriantly the Pearl in the Cavity as if it were sitting in a net.
The 'Red Heaven' Demon King (Chi Tian Mo Wang) [using his] Burning hot Brilliant Rays,
[is able] to extinguish the life-force [of evil demons].
The 'Daytime' Demon King (Bai Tian Mo Wang)
[impedes] the breaking off of the Placenta,
associating in this with a friendship that is true.
The 'Night Time' Demon
