This is the beginning of the Ancient Word
This is the account
Now they planned the animals of the mountains
And then the deer and birds were told
Again there comes an experiment with the human work
Then comes the naming of those who are the midmost seers
Again there comes a humiliation
This was when there was just a trace of early dawn
Here is the beginning of the defeat and destruction of the day of Seven Macaw
And here is the shooting of Seven Macaw by the two boys
And here are the deeds of Zipacna
Now this is the defeat and death of Zipacna
And the third to magnify himself is the second son of Seven Macaw, named Earthquake
And now we shall name the name of the father of Hunahpu and Xbalanque
And these are the lords over everything
And now for the messengers of One and Seven Death
After that One and Seven Hunahpu left
And One and Seven Hunahpu went inside Dark House
And here is the account of a maiden
And after the maiden was noticed by her father
And when Blood Moon came to the mother of One Monkey and One Artisan
And this is their birth; we shall tell of it here
And then they sang, they played, they drummed
And now they began to act out their self-revelation
So now there was fire in their hearts
Happy now, they went to play ball at the court
They went down to Xibalba
First they entered Dark House
And after that, the boys next entered Razor House
And now they entered Cold House
So next they entered Jaguar House
So next they entered the midst of the fire
Now they were put inside Bat House
And here it is: the epitaph, the death of Hunahpu and Xbalanque
This is the making of the oven
And on the fifth day they reappeared
And they came to the lords
And this is the sacrifice of little Hunahpu by Xbalanque
And then they named their names
And this is their grandmother, crying and calling out in front of the ears of green corn
And here their father is put back together by them
And here is the beginning of the conception of humans
These are the names of the first people who were made and modeled
And then their wives and women came into being
And this is our root, we who are the Quich� people
And this is the name of the mountain where they went
They walked in crowds when they arrived at Tulan, and there was no fire
When they came away from Tulan Zuyua
And then they came away, just camping on the road
And then Tohil, along with Auilix and Hacauitz, spoke to them
And here is the dawning and showing of the sun, moon, and stars
And there began their song named "Camacu"And here they burn their copal
And then comes the killing of the tribes
First the tribes tried to plan the defeat of Tohil, Auilix, and Hacauitz
And they sent the two of them, named Lust Woman and Wailing Woman
And here is the joining together of all the tribes
And then Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now, and Dark Jaguar had a plan
And these are the ones who were there: Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now, and Dark Jaguar
Now this is where we shall tell about the death of Jaguar Quitze, Jaguar Night, Not Right Now, and Dark Jaguar
And then they remembered what had been said about the east
And then they came before the lord named Nacxit
And then they came to a place where they founded a citadel named Thorny Place
And Bearded Place is the name of the mountain of their citadel
And then they got up and came to the citadel of Rotten Cane
And here are the titles of the lords who led the Cauecs
And now these are the lords who led the Greathouses
And now these are the Lord Quich�s
And there were also two lineages of Zaquic lords
Then splendor and majesty grew among the Quich�
And here are the names of the sixth generation of lords
After that came the sentries
And now we shall name the names of the houses of the gods
And this is the cry of their hearts
And here are the generations, the sequences of lordships
And here shall appear the faces, one by one, of each of the Quich� lords
And here are those of the Greathouses
And now these are for the Lord Quich�s
And there are three Masters of Ceremonies in all
This is enough about the being of Quich�Notes and Comments
