これにつけても(かみ)と国とのためあはれなり。

Thus I can only feel pity for the ruler and for the country of Japan.

Thus, I only feel pity for the ruler and for the country.

木のした()なるむし()の木を()らひ()うし、師子(しし)の中のむし()の師子を()らひうし()なふやうに、(こう)殿(どの)の御をん()にてすぐる人々が、守殿の御威(おんい)()りて一切の人々ををど()し、なやまし、わづ()らはし候うえ、(かみ)(おお)せとて法華経を失ひて、国もやぶれ、主をも失って、(かえ)って各々(おのおの)が身をほろ()ぼさんあさましさよ。

Just as the insects protected by a tree’s shade eat away at the tree and topple it, and the worms in a lion’s body eat away at and kill it, those who make their ways in the world protected by the lord of Sagami, under cover of his authority, threaten everyone, causing them suffering and distress. In addition, claiming that it is at the order of the ruler, they attempt to wipe out the teachings of the Lotus Sutra, causing the downfall of the nation and inviting the ruin of their lord. How foolish that, in the end, they destroy their own lives.

For example, the insects protected by a tree's shade eat away at the tree and topple a tree and the worms inside a lion's body eat a lion and kill it.Those people protected by the lord of Sagami, under cover of his authority, threaten populace, causing them anguish and bother. In addition, claiming that it is at the order of the ruler, they attempt to wipe out the teachings of the Lotus Sutra, causing the destruction of the nation and inviting the ruin of their lord. What pitiful people!
