Books referencing 《江汉》 Library Resources
1 江汉:
江汉浮浮、武夫滔滔。
匪安匪游、淮夷来求。
既出我车、既设我旟。
匪安匪舒、淮夷来铺。
Jiang Han:
Large was the volume of the Jiang and the Han,
And the troops advanced like a flowing current.
There was no resting, no idle wandering; -
We were seeking for the tribes of the Huai.
We had sent forth our chariots;
We had displayed our falcon-banners.
There was no resting, no remissness; -
Against the tribes of the Huai were we marshalled.

2 江汉:
江汉汤汤、武夫洸洸。
经营四方、告成于王。
四方既平、王国庶定。
时靡有争、王心载宁。
Jiang Han:
Large flowed the Jiang and the Han,
And grandly martial looked the troops.
The whole country had been reduced to order,
And an announcement of our success had been made to be king.
When the whole country was pacified,
The king's State began to feel settled.
There was then an end of strife,
And the king's heart was composed.

3 江汉:
江汉之浒、王命召虎、式辟四方、彻我疆土。
匪疚匪棘、王国来极。
于理于理、至于南海。
Jiang Han:
On the banks of the Jiang and the Han,
The king had given charge to Hu of Shao:
'Open up the whole of the country;
Make the statutory division of my lands there;
Not to distress the people, nor with urgency,
But making them conform to the royal state.
Make the larger and the smaller divisions of the ground,
As far as the southern sea.'

4 江汉:
王命昭虎、来旬来宣。
文武受命、召公维翰。
无曰予小子、召公是似。
肇敏戎公、用锡尔祉。
Jiang Han:
The king gave charge to Hu of Shao:
'You have everywhere diffused [and carried out my orders].
When Wen and Wu received their appointment,
The duke of Shao was their strong support.
You do not [only] have a regard to me the little child,
But you try to resemble that duke of Shao.
You have commenced and earnestly displayed your merit;
And I will make you happy.

5 江汉:
厘尔圭瓒、秬鬯一卣。
告于文人、锡山土田。
于周受命、自召祖命。
虎拜稽首、天子万年。
Jiang Han:
'I give you a large libation-cup of jade,
And a jar of herb-flavoured spirits from the black millet.
I have made announcement to the accomplished one,
And confer on you hills, lands, and fields.
In [Qi]zhou shall you receive investiture,
According as your ancestor received his. '
Hu bowed with his head to the ground, [and said],
'May the Son of Heaven live for ever! '

6 江汉:
虎拜稽首、对扬王休、作召公考、天子万寿。
明明天子、令闻不已、矢其文德、洽此四国。
Jiang Han:
Hu bowed with his head to the ground,
And in response displayed the goodness of the king,
And roused himself to maintain the fame of his ancestor.
'May the Son of Heaven live for ever!
Very intelligent is the Son of Heaven;
His good fame shall be without end.
Let him display his civil virtues,
Till they permeate all quarters of the kingdom.
