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
