"It is true we were promised this,- we and our fathers before (us): these are nothing but tales of the ancients."

Already we and our fathers have been promised this before. [But] these are just the [legendary] fables of the ancients' (asaateer is the plural of ustoora, meaning 'what has been written down [maa sutira] of lies').
