|123. The Wolf And The Lion|
A Wolf having stolen a lamb from a fold
, was carrying him off to his lair. A Lion met him in the path, and, seizing the lamb, took it from him. The Wolf, standing at a safe distance, exclaimed, "You have unrighteously taken that which was mine from me." The Lion jeeringly replied, "It was righteously yours, eh? the gift of a friend?"
一匹狼在羔羊栏舍里偷了一只羊，便带着羊往它的洞里去。 在路上遇到一只狮子，狮子抢了它的羔羊，并衔着就走。 狼站在安全的远处，大声喊说：「你将我的东西，从我这里抢去，这是多么卑鄙哪！」 狮子讥笑地说：「你自己就很正直吗？喂，这只羊是朋友送给你的礼物吗？」
