5 魏相丙吉... :
元康中,匈奴遣兵擊漢屯田車師者,不能下。上與後將軍趙充國等議,欲因匈奴衰弱,出兵擊其右地,使不敢復擾西域。相上書諫曰:「臣聞之,救亂誅暴,謂之義兵,兵義者王;敵加於己,不得已而起者,謂之應兵,兵應者勝;爭恨小故,不忍憤怒者,謂之忿兵,兵忿者敗;利人土地貨寶者,謂之貪兵,兵貪者破;恃國家之大,矜民人之眾,欲見威於敵者,謂之驕兵,兵驕者滅:此五者,非但人事,乃天道也。間者匈奴嘗有善意,所得漢民輒奉歸之,未有犯於邊境,雖爭屯田車師,不足致意中。今聞諸將軍欲興兵入其地,臣愚不知此兵何名者也。今邊郡困乏,父子共犬羊之裘,食草萊之實,常恐不能自存,難於動兵。『軍旅之後,必有凶年,』言民以其愁苦之氣,傷陰陽之和也。出兵雖勝,猶有後憂,恐災害之變因此以生。今郡國守相多不實選,風俗尤薄,水旱不時。案今年計,子弟殺父兄、妻殺夫者,凡二百二十二人,臣愚以為此非小變也。今左右不憂此,乃欲發兵報纖介之忿於遠夷,殆孔子所謂『吾恐季孫之憂不在顓臾而在蕭牆之內』也。願陛下與平昌侯、樂昌侯、平恩侯及有識者詳議乃可。」上從其言而止。
