In the twelfth month of the first year, on (the day) Yi-chou,
伊尹 Yi Yin sacrificed to the former king,
and presented the heir-king reverently before (the shrine of) his grandfather.
All the princes from the domain of the nobles and the royal domain were present;
all the officers (also), each continuing to discharge his particular duties, were there to receive the orders of the chief minister.
伊尹Yi Yin then clearly described the complete virtue of the Meritorious Ancestor
for the instruction of the (young) king.
