1 芮良夫解:
厲王失道,芮伯陳誥,作芮良夫。芮伯若曰:「予小臣良夫,稽首謹告,天子惟民父母,致厥道,無遠不服,無道,左右臣妾乃違,民歸于德,德則民戴,否德民讎。茲言允效,于前不遠,商紂不改夏桀之虐,肆我有周有家。嗚呼!惟爾天子,嗣文武業,惟爾執政小子,同先王之臣,昏行罔顧,道王不若,專利作威,佐亂進禍,民將弗堪。治亂信乎其行,惟王暨爾執政小子攸聞,古人求多聞以監戒,不聞,是惟弗知,爾聞爾知,弗改厥度,亦惟艱哉!后除民害,不惟民害,害民乃非后,惟其讎,后作類,后弗類,民不知后,惟其怨,民至億兆,后一而已,寡不敵眾,后其危哉!嗚呼!野禽馴服于人,家畜見人而奔,非禽畜之性,實惟人民亦如之。今爾執政小子,惟以貪諛事,王不懃德以備難,下民胥怨,財力單竭,手足靡措,弗堪戴上,不其亂而,以予小臣良夫,觀天下有土之君,厥德不遠,罔有代德,時為王之患,其惟國人。嗚呼!惟爾執政朋友小子,其惟洗爾心,改爾行,克憂往愆,以保爾居,爾乃聵禍翫災,遂非不悛,余未知王之所定,矧乃小子。惟禍發於人之攸忽,於人之攸輕,心不存焉,變之攸伏,爾執政小子,不圖大●,偷生苟安,爵以賄成,賢智箝口,小人鼓舌,逃害要利,並得厥求,唯曰:哀哉。我聞曰:以言取人,人飾其言,以行取人,人竭其行,飾言無庸,竭行有成。惟爾小子,飾言事王,寔蕃有徒,王貌受之,終弗獲用,面相誣蒙,及爾顛覆。爾自謂有餘,予謂爾弗足,敬思以德,備乃禍難,難至而悔,悔將安及,無曰予為,惟爾之禍。」
