Force him to work that he be not idle,
Put him to work, in order that he may not be idle,
Put him to work, in order that he may not be idle,
Put him to work, in order that he may not be idle,

Set him to work, as is fitting for him, and if he does not obey, make his fetters heavy.
Set him to work, as is fitting for him, and if he does not obey, make his fetters heavy.
Ordain thou him in work, for so it becometh him; (so) that if he obeyeth not, bow thou down him in stocks, [In work set him, so forsooth it seemeth him; that if he hear not, bow him with gives,]
