Doing nothing himself personally,
The people have no confidence in him,
By making no inquiry, and no trial of their services,
君子He should not deal deceitfully with superior men.
By dismissing them on the requirement of justice,
Mean men would not be endangering [the common weal];
And his mean relatives,
Would not be in offices of importance.
