毛詩:「《羔羊》,文王在位節儉正直羔羊。」

羔羊
羔羊退

[Those] lamb-skins and sheep-skins,
With their five braidings of white silk!
They have retired from the court to take their their meal;
Easy are they and self-possesed.

羔羊退

[Those] lamb-skins and sheep-skins,
With their five seams wrought with white silk!
Easy are they and self-possessed;
They have retired from the court to take their their meal.

羔羊退

The seams of [those] lamb-skins and sheep-skins,
The five joinings wrought with white silk!
Easy are they and self-possessed;
They have retired to take their their meal from the court.

羔羊》,四句
