The elements of a cup which he has made to contain wine
A drinker will not permit to be scattered abroad
All these heads and delicate feet—with their hands & fingers
For love of whom does he make them,—on what account should he break them.

 

Bodl 19

The elements of a cup which he has put together,
their breaking up a drinker cannot approve,
all these heads and delicate feet—with his finger-tips,
for love of whom did he make them?—for hate of whom did he break them?

Chr 77

It is not allowable for a man, [even when] drunk, to destroy
the composition of a cup which he has put together.
So many fair heads and feet, formed by His hand, for
love of whom did He make them? and for hate of whom did He destroy them?

F4 85

Then said a Second--"Ne'er a peevish Boy
"Would break the Bowl from which he drank in joy;
"And He that with his hand the Vessel made
"Will surely not in after Wrath destroy."

HA 85

The elements of a cup which he has put together,
Their breaking up a drinker cannot approve;
All these heads and feet—with his finger-tips,
For love of whom did he make them ?—for hate of whom did he break them?

Nic 38

Qui croira jamais que celui qui a confectionné la coupe puisse songer à la détruire? Toutes ces belles têtes, tous ces beaux bras, toutes ces mains charmantes, par quel amour ont-ils été créés, et par quelle haine sont-ils détruits?

P 220

How comes it He, who framed the cup for His delight,
To break His handiwork should after hold it right?
These heads, hands, feet and legs, so feat and fair of sight,
By what love were they framed and broke by what despite?

Th 81

The framework of the cup He did unite.
To break in rage how should God deem it right?
So many comely heads, feet, hands and arms!
Shaped by what love, and broke in what despite?

Wh 42

Behold these cups ! Can He who deigned to make them,
In wanton freak let ruin overtake them,
So many shapely feet and hands and heads, —
What love drives Him to make, what wrath to break them?
