30 夏本紀:
有扈氏不服,啟伐之,大戰於甘。將戰,作甘誓,乃召六卿申之。啟曰:「嗟!六事之人,予誓告女:有扈氏威侮五行,怠棄三正,天用勦絕其命。今予維共行天之罰。左不攻于左,右不攻于右,女不共命。御非其馬之政,女不共命。用命,賞于祖;不用命,僇于社,予則帑僇女。」遂滅有扈氏。天下咸朝。
Annals of the Xia:
As the lord of Hu would not submit, Qi attacked him, and there was a great battle at Han. Just before the engagement the speech at Gan was delivered to the six generals, who were summoned together; Qi said, 'Ah! ye who are engaged in my six armies, I have a solemn announcement to make to you. The chief of Hu violently sets at naught the five human relations, and idly casts aside the three obligations of duty. Heaven will on this account oppose him and cut off the span of his life, and I am now but reverently executing the punishment appointed by Heaven. If you on the left do not do your work on the left, and you on the right do not do your work on the right, it will be a disregard of my orders. If you, charioteers, do not observe the rules for the management of your horses, it will be a disregard of my orders. You who obey my orders shall be rewarded in the ancestral temple, but you who disobey my orders shall be slain before the altar of the spirits of the land, and I will destroy both you and your children. He thereupon destroyed the chief of Hu, and the whole nation went to the court of the Prince of Xia.
