7 經解:
故朝覲之禮,所以明君臣之義也。聘問之禮,所以使諸侯相尊敬也。喪祭之禮,所以明臣子之恩也。鄉飲酒之禮,所以明長幼之序也。昏姻之禮,所以明男女之別也。夫禮,禁亂之所由生,猶坊止水之所自來也。故以舊坊為無所用而壞之者,必有水敗;以舊禮為無所用而去之者,必有亂患。
Jing Jie:
The ceremonies at the court audiences of the different seasons were intended to illustrate the righteous relations between ruler and subject; those of friendly messages and inquiries, to secure mutual honour and respect between the feudal princes; those of mourning and sacrifice, to illustrate the kindly feelings of ministers and sons; those of social meetings in the country districts, to show the order that should prevail between young and old; and those of marriage, to exhibit the separation that should be maintained between males and females. Those ceremonies prevent the rise of disorder and confusion, and are like the embankments which prevent the overflow of water. He who thinks the old embankments useless and destroys them is sure to suffer from the desolation caused by overflowing water; and he who should consider the old rules of propriety useless and abolish them would be sure to suffer from the calamities of disorder.
