瓠葉 HU YE

幡幡瓠葉、采之亨之。
君子有酒、酌言嘗之。

有兔斯首、炮之燔之。
君子有酒、酌言獻之。

有兔斯首、燔之炙之。
君子有酒、酌言酢之。

有兔斯首、燔之炮之。
君子有酒、酌言酬之。

Of the gourd leaves , waving about ,
Some are taken and boiled ;
[Then] the superior man , from his spirits ,
Pours out a cup , and tastes it .

There is but a single rabbit ,
Baked , or roasted .
[But] the superior man , from his spirits ,
Fills the cup and presents it [to his guests] .

There is but a single rabbit ,
Roasted , or broiled .
[But] from the spirits of the superior man ,
[His guests] fill the cup , and present it to him .

There is but a single rabbit ,
Roasted , or baked .
[But] from the spirits of the superior man ,
[His guests and he] fill the cup and pledge one another .
