How well do the black robes befit you!
When worn out, we will make others for you.
We will go to your court,
And when we return [from it], we will send you a feast!

How good on you are the black robes!
When worn out, we will make others for you.

How easy sit the black robes on you!
When worn out, we will make others for you.
