13 人閒訓:
智伯率韓、魏二國伐趙。圍晉陽,決晉水而灌之。城下緣木而處,縣釜而炊。襄子謂張孟談曰:「城中力已盡,糧食匱乏,大夫病,為之奈何?」張孟談曰:「亡不能存,危不能安,無為貴智士。臣請試潛行,見韓、魏之君而約之。」乃見韓、魏之君,說之曰:「臣聞之,唇亡而齒寒。今智伯率二君而伐趙,趙將亡矣。趙亡則君之次矣。及今而不圖之,禍將及二君!」二君曰:「智伯之為人也,粗中而少親,我謀而泄,事必敗,為之奈何?」張孟談曰:「言出君之口,入臣之耳,人孰知之者乎?且同情相成,同利相死。君其圖之。」二君乃與張孟談陰謀,與之期。張孟談乃報襄子。至其日之夜,趙氏將殺其守堤之吏,決水灌智伯。智伯軍救水而亂。朝、魏翼而擊之,襄子將卒犯其前,大敗智伯軍,殺其身而三分其國。襄子乃賞有功者,而高赫為賞首。群臣請曰:「晉陽之存,張孟談之功也。而赫為賞首,何也?」襄子曰:「晉陽之圍也,寡人國家危,社稷殆。群臣無不有驕侮之心者,唯赫不失君臣之禮,吾是以先之。」由此觀之,義者,人之大本也,雖有戰勝存亡之功,不如行義之隆。故君子曰:「美言可以市尊,美行可以加人。」
