Tao gave birth to one.
One gave birth to two.
Two gave birth to three.
Three gave birth to the Ten Thousand things.
The Ten Thousand things endure the negative
as well as cherish the positive.
Powerful, vital breath serves to bring them into harmony.
People loathe to be alone and lonely, orphaned, widowed, unworthy,
Yet kings and leaders believe it to fit themselves.
Therefore some things might be a benefit to lose
and other things a loss to gain.
People actually teach what I also teach here.
Those with the strength of a bridge may not be uncrossable.
I will prepare you to consider God, the father.
