he roused himself, and said,
"Why should I not go and follow him?
西伯。’ I have heard that the chief of the West knows well how to nourish the old."
Tai Gong, that he might avoid Zhou,
was dwelling on the coast of the eastern sea.
文王 When he heard of the rise of king Wen,
he roused himself, and said,
"Why should I not go and follow him?
西伯。’ I have heard that the chief of the West knows well how to nourish the old."

When they came to follow king Wen,
