毛詩:「《木瓜》,齊桓公國有出處齊桓公車馬厚報。」



木瓜
木瓜以為

There was presented to me a papaya,
And I returned for it a beautiful Ju-gem;
Not as a return for it,
But that our friendship might be lasting.

瓊瑤以為

There was presented to me a peach,
And I returned for it a beautiful Yao-gem;
Not as a return for it,
But that our friendship might be lasting.

以為

There was presented to me a plum,
And I returned for it a beautiful Jiu-gem;
Not as a return for it,
But that our friendship might be lasting.
