Wú Qíong Yŏu Bì Shàng Tiān Wén Zhū Tiān Gòng Suŏ Chóng Chí Màn
Duò Dì Yù Huò Jí Qī Zŭ Wēng
Inexhuastibly to have the secret of Heaven's Providence (Shang Tian) writings.
The Heavens all share the same lofty place.
And there is the Pool and the Walled in Space (Chi) that is slowly sinking into Hell,
bringing disaster upon those who are (trying to) reach up out of it.
[Concerning] the seven Founding Ancestors (Qi Zu) and the Old Man (Weng),
Dào Yán Cǐ Èr Zhāng Bìng Shì Zhū Tiān Shàng Dì Jí Zhì Líng Mó Wáng Yǐn
Bì Zhī Yīn Jiē Shì Dà Fàn Zhī Yán Fēi Shì Shàng Cháng Cí Yán Wú Yùn Lì
Qū Wú Huá Wǎn Gù Wèi
Daoist doctrine states that these two different sections are united together.
It is correct that in the heavens the Great God (Shang Di)
and the King of the Demons (Mo Wang) have secret sounds and each one of these is correct.
The Great Brahma (Da Fan) speaks about what is wrong in the world,
in a constant phraseology using words regardless of their rhyme or melody.
These are not showy or elaborate, winding or tortuous.
Therefore, this is called
Xuán Ào Nán Kĕ Xún Xiáng Shàng Tiān Suŏ Bǎo
abtuse and difficult, yet it is possible that,
though unexpectedly detailed, to suddenly know it clearly.
Up in Heaven is the place that is of precious value
