The import of This Kural has been recorded in the lines below, adapting K Srinivasan's translation:
The love of fraudulent gain, in its result, Leads to ever-lasting misery.
In the final analysis, gain through fraud can only bring eternal misery. The old-time commentators would say that the word 'Vilumam' implies something more than misery, (i.e) hell itself. 'Veeyaa vilumam', would therefore mean 'eternal hell'.
Biblical support for this thought is had in the connected passage below:
'The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them'.
The idea of the results arising from one's actions, has been brought out beautifully, in the following lines of manimekalai.
"Vinaipayan Vilaiyum Kaalai uyirkatku
Manapaerinbamum kavalaiyum kaatum"
(manimekalai 30 : 62-63)
