Shalok, Third Mehl:
Those who forget the Naam, the Name of the Lord, are said to be false.
The five thieves plunder their homes, and egotism breaks in.
The faithless cynics are defrauded by their own evil-mindedness; they do not know the sublime essence of the Lord.
Those who lose the Ambrosial Nectar through doubt, remain engrossed and entangled in corruption.
They make friends with the wicked, and argue with the humble servants of the Lord.
O Nanak, the faithless cynics are bound and gagged by the Messenger of Death, and suffer agony in hell.
They act according to the karma of the actions they committed before; as the Lord keeps them, so do they live. ||1||
