The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Fours
Chapter XXIV: The Deed
Paṭhama Kamma Suttaɱ
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, these four deeds I have myself comprehended,
and made known.
There is a dark deed
with a dark result;
a bright deed
with a bright result;
a deed that is both dark and bright,
with a dark and bright result;
and the deed that is neither dark nor bright,
with a result neither dark nor bright,
which being itself a deed
conduces to the waning of deeds.
These four deeds I have myself comprehended,
and made known."
 Comy. calls this Magga-Vagga.
