Three different translations of the same sentence from Nichirens writing, The Gift of Rice.

Three different translations of a passage from the Gift of Rice:

"Without food, I could  not long continue to recite the sutra or concentrate on MEDITATION (Major Works) 

"Under these circumstances [without food], my voice reciting the sutra would not long endure nor could I concentrate on FAITH. (1972 Nichiren Publication) 

"Without food, I could not long continue to recite the sutra or concentrate on PRACTICE. (George Williams Gosho Reference).
