XII: Kesi Vagga
The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Fours
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 Thus have I heard:
On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.
Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
"Yes, lord," they replied, and the Exalted One said:
"Monks, there are these four fears.
Fear of birth,
fear of old age,
fear of disease,
and fear of death.
These are the four fears."
 These two suttas [Ed.: this and the next.] should belong to the next chapter in context.
