[7] [5]

[1][bodh] Monks, possessed of five things an unruly[1] monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma.

What five?

[6] Without faith an unruly monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma;
without conscientiousness an unruly monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma;
without fear of blame an unruly monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma;
being indolent an unruly monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma;
without insight an unruly monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma.

Monks, possessed of these five things an unruly monk, lacking in respect, falls away,
finding no support in Saddhamma.

Monks, possessed of five things a humble monk, having respect, falls not away,
finding support in Saddhamma.
What five?

With faith a humble monk, having respect, falls not away,
finding support in Saddhamma.
with conscientiousness a humble monk, having respect, falls not away,
finding support in Saddhamma;
with fear of blame a humble monk, having respect, falls not away,
finding support in Saddhamma;
with energy a humble monk, having respect, falls not away,
finding support in Saddhamma;
with insight a humble monk, having respect, falls not away,
finding support in Saddhamma.[2]
