Salok is normally the final verse in a Bani. The final verse in the Japji Sahib is a Salok and the English translation is given below:

Air is the Guru, Water is the Father, and Earth is the Great Mother of all.
Day and night are the two nurses, in whose lap the entire world is at play.
Good deeds and bad are announced in the Presence of Lord Dharma.
According to their own actions, some are drawn closer, and some are driven farther away.
Those who have meditated on the Naam have departed after having worked by the sweat of their brows
O Nanak, their faces are radiant in the Lord's Court, and many are saved along with them! ||1||
