The world of hunger has two dwelling-places.

一には地の下五百()(じゅん)(えん)()王宮(おうぐう)にあり、二には人天の中にもまじはれり

One is the court of Yama, the lord of hell, which is five hundred yojanas under the earth; the other is mingled in with the realms of human beings and heavenly beings.

One is in the royal palace of King Emma, located five hundred yojanas underground. The second place is in the worlds of humanity and rapture.

其の相種種(しゅじゅ)なり

There are various types of hungry spirits.

Those in the state of hunger show their appearances in various forms.

(あるい)は腹は大海の如くのんどは(はり)の如くなれば明けても暮れても食すとも()くべからず

Some have bellies like huge seas and throats as thin as needles, and though they eat constantly day and night, they never feel satisfied.

Some have bellies like an ocean, but their throats are like needles. Though they devour food day-in and day-out, they can never feel satisfied.

まして五百生・七百生なんど飲食(おんじき)の名をだにもきかず

Others live five hundred or seven hundred lifetimes without ever so much as hearing the words “eat” or “drink.”

Or even if some are reborn 500 or 700 times, they have never heard of hood or drink.
