Yu said,
'So far good!
But let your light shine, O Di, all under heaven,
even to every grassy corner of the sea-shore,
and throughout the myriad regions the most worthy of the people
will all (wish) to be your ministers.
Then, O Di, you may advance them to office.
They will set forth, and you will receive, their reports;
you will make proof of them according to their merits;
you will confer chariots and robes according to their services.
Who will then dare not to cultivate a humble virtue?
who will dare not to respond to you with reverence?
If you, O Di, do not act thus,
。” all (your ministers) together will daily proceed to a meritless character.'
