8–9     The little-one cried: woke up his father.

10–11  He made his mother take the road-of-no-sleep.

14–15  when you were enveloped with the womb, wearing the placenta – 

16–18   why [don't you ke]ep silent, once you are out on the quay of labor? 

18–19   [I will tr]ead on you like a reed of the path!

20–21   [I will cr]oss over you like (over) the threshold!
