Then he uttered all this as he had been taught by the man at the wave, who said this to him: Thy reign will be subject to a restriction, but the bird-reign will be noble, and this shall be thy restriction, i.e. thy tabu.
Thou shalt not go righthandwise round Tara and lefthandwise round Bregia.
The evil-beasts of Cerna must not be hunted by thee.
And thou shalt not go out every ninth night beyond Tara.
Thou shalt not sleep in a house from which firelight is manifest outside, after sunset, and in which light is manifest from without.
And three Reds shall not go before thee to Red's house.
And no rapine shall be wrought in thy reign.
And after sunset a company of one woman or one man shall not enter the house in which thou art.
And thou shalt not settle(?) the quarrel of thy two thralls.
