1. 6

    धनानि तु यथाशक्ति विप्रेषु प्रतिपादयेत् । वेदवित्सु विविक्तेषु प्रेत्य स्वर्गं समश्नुते ॥ ६ ॥

    One should give, according to one’s ability, wealth to Brahmanas learned in the Veda and living alone; (thus) one obtains after death heavenly bliss.

  2. 7

    यस्य त्रैवार्षिकं भक्तं पर्याप्तं भृत्यवृत्तये । अधिकं वाऽपि विद्येत स सोमं पातुमर्हति ॥ ७ ॥

    He who may possess (a supply of) food sufficient to maintain those dependant on him during three years or more than that, is worthy to drink the Soma-juice.

  3. 8

    अतः स्वल्पीयसि द्रव्ये यः सोमं पिबति द्विजः । स पीतसोमपूर्वोऽपि न तस्याप्नोति तत्फलम् ॥ ८ ॥

    But a twice-born man, who, though possessing less than that amount of property, nevertheless drinks the Soma-juice, does not derive any benefit from that (act), though he may have formerly drunk the Soma-juice.

  4. 9

    शक्तः परजने दाता स्वजने दुःखजीविनि । मध्वापातो विषास्वादः स धर्मप्रतिरूपकः ॥ ९ ॥

    (If) an opulent man (is) liberal towards strangers, while his family lives in distress, that counterfeit virtue will first make him taste the sweets (of fame, but afterwards) make him swallow the poison (of punishment in hell).

  5. 10

    भृत्यानामुपरोधेन यत् करोत्यौर्ध्वदेहिकम् । तद् भवत्यसुखौदर्कं जीवतश्च मृतस्य च ॥ १० ॥

    If (a man) does anything for the sake of his happiness in another world, to the detriment of those whom he is bound to maintain, that produces evil results for him, both while he lives and when he is dead.
