หมาจิ้งจอกตัวหนึ่ง มีก้างปลาติดคอ จะทำอย่างไรก็เอาไม่ออก
maaR jingF jaawkL dtuaaM neungL meeM gaangF bplaaM dtitL khaawM jaL thamM yaangL raiM gaawF aoM maiF aawkL
A fox had a fishbone stuck in his throat; he tried and tried but could not get it out.
มีความเจ็บปวดเป็นอันมาก จึงได้ไปว่าจ้างให้นกกระสาเอาออกให้
meeM khwaamM jepL bpuaatL bpenM anM maakF jeungM daiF bpaiM waaF jaangF haiF nohkH graL saaR aoM aawkL haiF
He suffered a lot of pain so he hired a stork to remove it for him.
นกกระสาก็ใช้ปาก ล้วงเข้าไปในคอ คาบก้างปลาออกมาได้
nohkH graL saaR gaawF chaiH bpaakL luaangH khaoF bpaiM naiM khaawM khaapF gaangF bplaaM aawkL maaM daiF
The stork used its beak to delve into [the fox’s] throat and was able to pull the fishbone out.
เมื่อก้างปลาออกมาแล้ว นกกระสาก็ทวงค่าจ้าง ที่หมาจิ้งจอกสัญญาจะให้
meuuaF gaangF bplaaM aawkL maaM laaeoH nohkH graL saaR gaawF thuaangM khaaF jaangF theeF maaR jingF jaawkL sanR yaaM jaL haiF
After removing the fishbone, the stork asked for the payment that the fox has promised to give him.
แต่หมาจิ้งจอกกลับตอบว่า "ที่เราไว้ชีวิตท่านก็ยังไม่เป็นค่าจ้างพออีกหรือ? เพราะว่าถ้าเราจะงับคอท่าน ท่านก็คงจะตายเปล่า ๆ"
dtaaeL maaR jingF jaawkL glapL dtaawpL waaF theeF raoM waiH cheeM witH thanF gaawF yangM maiF bpenM khaaF jaangF phaawM eekL reuuR phrawH waaF thaaF raoM jaL ngapH khaawM thanF thanF gaawF khohngM jaL dtaaiM bplaaoL bplaaoL
However, the fox responded by saying, “Isn’t the fact that I allowed you to live payment enough? This is because if I had ripped out your throat then you would have died with no payment at all.”

The fox then ran away.
