Punishment ⧸ Verse 144

Like a well-trained horse when touched by the whip, be ye active and lively, and by faith, by virtue, by energy, by meditation, by discernment of the law you will overcome this great pain (of reproof), perfect in knowledge and in behaviour, and never forgetful.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
