《息君夫人》

Library Resources
1 息君夫人:
夫人者,息君之夫人也。楚伐息,破之。虜其君,使守門。將妻其夫人,而納之於宮。楚王出遊,夫人遂出見息君,謂之曰:「人生要一死而已,何至自苦!妾無須臾而忘君也,終不以身更貳醮。生離於地上,豈如死歸於地下哉!」乃作《》曰:「穀則異室,死則同穴。謂予不信,有如皦日。」息君止之,夫人不聽,遂自殺,息君亦自殺,同日俱死。楚王賢其夫人,守節有義,乃以諸侯之禮合而葬之。君子謂夫人說於行善,故序之於詩。夫義動君子,利動小人。息君夫人不為利動矣。《》云:「德音莫違,及爾同死。」此之謂也。

2 息君夫人:
頌曰:楚虜息君,納其適妃,夫人持固,彌久不衰,作詩同穴,思故忘新,遂死不顧,列於貞賢。
