I must blame you a little for that—but not too much, because we all do what we have to do to stay alive.
I bless this scar, because to the end of my days it will remind me of what happens to those who are not completely honest.
2⃣️“Now I have kept my promise, and if you try to strike me again, I shall give you as good as I get!”
3⃣️The first two times I swung my ax were for the first two days you spent in my house.
4⃣️ “To make things interesting, I would like to make an agreement with you,” the Lord continued.
“Whatever I get out there in the forest, I will give to you.
But whatever you get here in my home, you must give to me. Agree?”
5⃣️The kisses 😘
7⃣️天啦噜这还有最后一个考验！“Since you have been so honest about your mistake, I forgive you for it,” said the Green Knight.
“You have paid its price on the edge of my ax.
“Surely,” said the Green Knight, “this man, who tries to get away before he has even been hurt, cannot be the famous Sir Gawain!
Is this how I acted in Arthur’s hall?”
“Unlike you, if I lose my head, I cannot put it back,” said Gawain.
“But strike me a second time—I will not move again.”
Then Sir Gawain was angry at himself, took off the girdle(腰带) and gave it to the Green Knight, and said,
⚜️“Cowardice and greed are my greatest enemies, and they have beaten me!
I have acted very wrongly toward you: do with me as you will.
⚜️Hiding the truth always gets one into trouble.”
And now I freely offer you this girdle(腰带), so that you may have something to remember this adventure by.
And I invite you to return to my castle and to our New Year’s celebrations,
where you and I and my wife can laugh about everything we have done together, in peace and happiness.”
And I will accept your gift of the girdle(腰带).
⚜️Whenever I wear it, I will let go of my pride and remember how easy it is for me to go wrong.”
⚜️He tied the girdle(腰带) closely around his body, and always wore it to remind himself of his weakness.
