دست گوید من چنین دزدیدهام ** لب بگوید من چنین پرسیدهام
His foot will say, “I have gone to (enjoy) things desired”; his pudendum will say, “I have committed fornication.” [His foot will say, “I have gone to (enjoy) things desired”; his private parts will say, “I have committed fornication.”]
پای گوید من شدستم تا منی ** فرج گوید من بکردستم زنی

Therefore he is a lie from head to foot, for even his own members give him the lie,

Just as, in (the case of) the specious prayers (performed by the ascetic), their fine appearance was proved to be false testimonio testiculi. [Just as, in (the case of) the specious prayers (performed by the ascetic), their fine appearance was proved to be false by the testimony of the (soiled) testicles.]
آنچنان که در نماز با فروغ ** از گواهی خصیه شد زرقش دروغ

پس چنان کن فعل که آن خود بیزبان ** باشد اشهد گفتن و عین بیان
So that your whole body, limb by limb, O son, will have said “I testify” as regards both good and ill.
تا همه تن عضو عضوت ای پسر ** گفته باشد اشهد اندر نفع و ضر

رفتن بنده پی خواجه گواست ** که منم محکوم و این مولای ماست
If you have blackened the scroll (record) of your life, repent of the deeds you did formerly.
گر سیه کردی تو نامهی عمر خویش ** توبه کن زانها که کردستی تو پیش

عمر اگر بگذشت بیخش این دمست ** آب توبهش ده اگر او بینمست
