Translation: (YagyadaantapHkarm) the acts of yagya, charity and austerity (na, tyaajyam’) should not be relinquished, rather (tat’) they (ev) must / definitely (kaaryam’) be performed because (yagyaH) yagya (daanm’) charity (ch) and (tapH) austerity (ev) acts only (maneeshinaam’) wise men (paavnaani) are the purifiers. (5)

Translation: The acts of yagya, charity and austerity should not be relinquished; rather, they must be performed because the acts of yagya, charity and austerity only are the purifiers of the wise men.
