6 王充王符... :
夫帝王之所尊敬者天也,皇天之所爱育者人也。今人臣受君之重位,牧天之所爱,焉可以不安而利之,养而济之哉?是以君子任职则思利人,达上则思进贤,故居上而下不怨,在前而后不恨也。》称“天工人其代之”。王者法天而建官,故明主不敢以私授,忠臣不敢以虚受。窃人之财犹谓之盗,况偷天官以私己乎!以罪犯人,必加诛罚,况乃犯天,得无咎乎?夫五世之臣,以道事君,泽及草木,仁被率土,是以福祚流衍,本支百世。季世之臣,以谄媚主,不思顺天,专杖杀伐。白起、蒙恬,秦以为功,天以为贼;息夫、董贤,主以为忠,天以为盗。《》曰:“德薄而位尊,智小而谋大,鲜不及矣。”是故德不称,其祸必酷;能不称,其殃必大。夫窃位之人,天夺其鉴。虽有明察之资,仁义之志,一旦富贵,则背亲捐旧,丧其本心,疏骨肉而亲便辟,薄知友而厚犬马,宁见朽贯千万,而不忍贷人一钱,情知积粟腐仓,而不忍贷人一斗,骨肉怨望于家,细人谤讟于道。前人以败,后争袭之,诚可伤也。
