節葬下 - Simplicity in Funerals III

English translation: W. P. Mei [?] Library Resources
1 節葬下:
子墨子言曰:「仁者之為天下度也,辟之無以異乎孝子之為親度也。今孝子之為親度也,將柰何哉?曰:『親貧則從事乎富之,人民寡則從事乎眾之,眾亂則從事乎治之。』當其於此也,亦有力不足,財不贍,智不智,然後己矣。無敢舍餘力,隱謀遺利,而不為親為之者矣。若三務
1,孝子之為親度也,既若此矣。
Simplicity in Funerals III:...:
Mozi said: The magnanimous ruler takes care of the empire, in the same way as a filial son takes care of his parents. But how does the filial son take care of his parents? If the parents are poor he would enrich them; if the parents have few people (descendants) he would increase them; if the members (of the family) are in confusion he would put them in order. Of course, in doing this he might find his energy insufficient, his means limited, or his knowledge inadequate. But he dare not allow any energy, learning, or means unused to serve his parents. Such are the three interests of the filial son in taking care of his parents.

雖仁者之
1天下度,亦猶此也。曰:『天下貧則從事乎富之,人民寡則從事乎眾之,眾而亂則從事乎治之。』當其於此,亦有力不足,財不贍、智不智,然後已矣。無敢舍餘力,隱謀遺利,而不為天下為之者矣。若三務者,此仁者之為天下度
2,既若此矣。
Simplicity in Funerals III:...:
And the same is true of the magnanimous ruler in taking care of the empire: if the empire is poor he would enrich it; if the people are few he would increase them; if the multitude are in confusion he would put them in order. Of course in doing these he might find his energy insufficient, means limited, or knowledge inadequate, but he dare not allow any energy, learning, or means unused to serve the world. And such are the three interests of the magnanimous ruler in taking care of the empire.
