English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《北门》 Library Resources
1 北门:
出自北门、忧心殷殷。
终窭且贫、莫知我艰。
已焉哉、天实为之、谓之何哉
Bei Men:
I go out at the north gate,
With my heart full of sorrow.
Straitened am I and poor,
And no one takes knowledge of my distress.
So it is!
Heaven has done it; -
What then shall I say?

2 北门:
王事适我、政事一埤益我。
我入自外、室人交徧讁我。
已焉哉、天实为之、谓之何哉
Bei Men:
The king's business comes on me,
And the affairs of our government in increasing measure.
When I come home from abroad,
The members of my family all emulously reproach me.
So it is!
Heaven has done it; -
What then shall I say?

3 北门:
王事敦我、政事一埤遗我。
我入自外、室人交徧摧我。
已焉哉、天实为之、谓之何哉
Bei Men:
The king's business is thrown on me,
And the affairs of our government are left to me more and more.
When I come home from abroad,
The members of my family all emulously thrust at me.
So it is!
Heaven has done it; -
What then shall I say?
