I sacrifice a goat and two turtle-doves for a full harvest.

I sacrifice bible wood and amethysts for protection from evil.

I sacrifice seven gold coins for wealth and my fattest bull for strong sons.

I sacrifice my ancestors’ memory for fame.

I sacrifice my right hand for luck in war.

I sacrifice my left hand for peace.

I sacrifice my first born for love and my wife for an eternally growing family.

I sacrifice my heart for immortality.
