3 卷八:
;君反国,臣亦反其屠。臣之禄既厚,又何赏之?”辞不受命,君强之,说曰:“君失国,非臣之罪,故不伏诛;君反国,非臣之功、故不受其赏。吴师入郢,臣畏寇避患,君反国,说何事焉。”君曰:“不受,则见之。”说对曰:“楚国之法,商人欲见于君者,必有大献重质,然后得见。今臣智不能存国,节不能死君,勇不能待寇,然见之,非国法也。”遂不受命,入于涧中。昭王谓司马子期曰:“有人于此,居处甚约,议论甚高,为我求之,愿为兄弟,请为三公。”司马子期舍车徒求之,五日五夜,见之,谓曰:“国危不救,非仁也;君命不从,非忠也;恶富贵于上,甘贫苦于下,意者过也。今君愿为兄弟,请为三公,不听君,何也?”说曰:“三公之位,我知其贵于刀俎之肆矣;万锺之禄,我知其富于屠年之利矣。今见爵禄之利,而忘辞受之礼,非所闻也。”遂辞三公之位,而反乎屠羊之肆。君子闻之曰:“甚矣哉!屠羊子之为也,约己持穷,而处人之国矣。”说曰:“何谓穷?吾让之以礼,而终其国也。”曰:“在深渊之中,而不援彼之危,见昭王德衰于吴,而怀宝绝迹,以病其国,欲独全己者也,是厚于己而薄于君,狷乎!非救世者也。”“何如则可谓救世矣?”曰:“若申伯仲山甫可谓救世矣!昔者、周德大衰,道废于厉,申伯仲山甫辅相宣王,拨乱世,反之正,天下略振,宗庙复兴,申伯仲山甫乃并顺天下,匡救邪失,喻德教,举遗士,海内翕然向风。故百姓勃然咏宣王之德。《》曰:‘周邦咸喜,戎有良翰。’又曰:‘邦国若否,仲山甫明之。既明且哲,以保其身。夙夜匪懈,以事一人。’如是、可谓救世矣。”
