Telah melihat bebiri yang tidak mempunyai bulu akan didikan. Membawa seekor darinya gerabak yang berat. Membawa seekor yang lain beban yang besar. Dan membawa seekor lagi orang dengan cepat. Bertutur bebiri ke para didikan: "Menyakitiku hatiku. Melihat aku penunggang didikan.". Bertutur para didikan. "Dengarkan dami bebiri. Menyakitimi hatimi. Kapan melihat kami ini. Membuat orang dan ketua kekabu bebiri ke pakaian hangat untuk dirinya. Dan tidak ada bebiri itu bulunya.". Selepas mendengar ini, melarikan diri bebiri itu ke dataran.

Translation

A sheep that had no wool saw horses, one of them pulling a heavy wagon, one carrying a big load, and one carrying a man quickly. The sheep said to the horses: "My heart pains me, seeing a man driving horses." The horses said: "Listen, sheep, our hearts pain us when we see this: a man, the master, makes the wool of the sheep into a warm garment for himself. And the sheep has no wool." Having heard this, the sheep fled into the plain.
