On Earnestness ⧸ Verse 24

If an earnest person has roused himself, if he is not forgetful, if his deeds are pure, if he acts with consideration, if he restrains himself, and lives according to law,—then his glory will increase.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
