81 Chapter Translations & Interpretations

Chapter 70 – My words are so easy to understand

My words are so easy to understand,
so easy to follow.

And yet nobody in the world
understands or follows them.

Words come from an ancestry
deeds from a mastery:
when these are unknown, so am I.

In my obscurity
is my value.
That’s why the wise
wear their jade under common clothes.
