English translation: James Legge [?]
Books referencing 《执竞》 Library Resources
1 执竞:
执竞武王、无竞维烈。
不显成康、上帝是皇。
自彼成康、奄有四方、斤斤其明。
钟鼓喤喤、磬管将将、降福穰穰。
降福简简
、威仪反反。
既醉既饱、福禄来反。
Zhi Jing:
The arm of king Wu was full of strength;
Irresistable was his ardour.
Greatly illustrious were Cheng and Kang,
Kinged by God.
When we consider how Cheng and Kang,
Grandly held all within the four quarters [of the kingdom],
How penetrating was their intelligence!
The bells and drums sound in harmony;
The sounding stones and flutes blend their notes;
Abundant blessing is sent down.
Blessing is sent down in large measure;
Careful and exact is all our deportment;
We have drunk, and we have eaten, to the full;
Our happiness and dignity will be prolonged.
