If he be a cleric, let him not be wrathful.
Let him not his voice be raised. Let him not swear falsely.
Let him not be greedy. Let him not be treasure loving.
Let him not be niggardly, lying. Let him not be fault-finding at meals.
Do not slander thy fellow.
Thy side half bare, thy bed half cold
From Christ, God’s Son, mayest thou have thy reward.
Absence from thy bodily family
Until the day of thy death.
Grassless earth over thee
At the end of thy journeying.
Knowledge, steadfastness, patience,
Silence without muteness.
Humility, purity, patience,
Take not the world,
