The duke said,
'Prince Shi,
寿 Heaven gives length of days to the just and the intelligent;
(it was thus that those ministers) maintained and regulated the dynasty of Yin.
He who came last to the throne granted by Heaven was extinguished by its terrors.
Do you think of the distant future,
and we shall have the decree (in favour of Zhou) made sure,
。”and its good government will be, brilliantly exhibited in our newly-founded state.'
