11 表记:
;以怨报怨,则民有所惩。《》曰:‘无言不雠,无德不报。’《太甲》曰:‘民非后无能胥以宁;后非民无以辟四方。’”
Biao Ji:
The Master said, 'When kindness is returned for kindness, the people are stimulated (to be kind). When injury is returned for injury, the people are warned (to refrain from wrong-doing). It is said in the Book of Poetry (III, iii, ode 26) - "Answers to every word will leap, Good deeds their recompense shall reap." It is said in the Tai Jia (Shu, V, v, sect. 2, 2), "Without the sovereign, the people cannot enjoy repose with one another; without the people, the sovereign would have none to rule over in the four quarters (of the kingdom)."'
