誘惑に負ける ゆうわくにまける to yield (succumb) to temptation I don't know why the sable is yielding. I think the fingers should be yielding. BTW, is it "sabre" or "sable"?

Sable is a luxurious fur. Sato, what are you reading? "Yielding" means easy to give way.

"His fingers convulsively grasped the yielding water," would beetter express the definition of the word. To yield is to give way. If you drive to a intersection and you have a red light, you must yield to drivers with a green light.
