    The state of the faithful cannot be described.

    Anyone who describes it shall regret the attempt.

    Only one who has faith comes to know such a state of mind. (12)

    The faithful have intuitive intelligence. 

    The faithful know about all the worlds.

    The faithful shall never be struck across their face.

    The faithful shall not have to go with the messenger of death.

    Such is the name of the immaculate lord.

    Only one who has faith comes to know such a state of mind. (13)

    The path of the faithful shall never be obstructed.

    The faithful shall depart with honor and respect.

    The faithful do not follow empty religious rituals.
