"Wood of the poor man's hand, not fit for the hands of high-ranking persons, the hand of a man's slave is the only adornment of your head. You deliver deep insults to me. You compare yourself to me. When I go out to the plain, everyone looks on but { (2 mss. add 1 line:) the Hoe does not …… the Plough, and } insultingly you call me "Plough, the digger of ditches"."
