Translation: If the Sun is in the third house, native will be intelligent, he will be deprived of younger brothers and his elder brothers will not survive. In his fifth, fourth, eight and twelfth year he will suffer from mild bodily troubles. If the Sun is conjoined with a malefic planet, native will do cruel deeds.

He will have two brothers  (*some opine that there is a mistake in original text and translate this as mother instead of brother, more on that in commentary) and will be valorous. He will be a brave fighter. He will have a good reputation and will enjoy his wealth. Is the Sun is associated with a benefic planet, brothers will be prosperous. If the lord of the third house is strong, the brother will be long lived.

It the Sun is associated with malefic the family will be destroyed. If the Sun is aspected with benefic (and has no malefic influence) there will be growth of family and native will be wealthy, will enjoy good life and will be happy.
