-> -> 第三十八回絕  嗣

《第三十八回絕  嗣》[View] [Edit] [History]

1 話說東京城內有個張柔,頗稱行善,臨老無子;城外有個沈慶,種種作惡,盜跖無異,倒有五男二女,七子團圓。因此張柔死得不服,到閻君處呈一狀詞。告道:
2 告為絕嗣不宜事;諺云:積德多嗣。經云:為善有後。理所當然,事有必至。某三畏存心,四知質鬼;不敢自附善門,庶幾可免惡行。年老無嗣,終身遺恨;乞查前數,辨明後事。上告。
3 包公看罷道:「哪有為善的反致絕嗣之事,畢竟你祖父遺下冤孽。到司善薄上查來。」鬼吏查報,善簿上並無張柔名字;包公命再司惡簿上查來,鬼吏查報,惡簿上有張柔名字,三代祖張異,過惡多端,因該絕嗣。包公曰:「你雖有行善好處,掩不得祖宗之惡,你莫怪天道不平。」張柔曰:「如何象沈慶這樣作惡,反生七子?」包公曰:「也與他查來。」鬼吏報曰:「沈慶一生作惡,應該絕嗣;只因他三代祖宗俱是積德的,因此不絕其後。」包公曰:「正是積善之家,必有餘慶;積不善之家,必有餘殃。大凡人家行善,必有幾代善,方叫做積善;幾代行不善,方叫做不善。豈謂天道真無報應,遠在兒孫近在身。張柔你一生既行得幾件善,難道就沒有報應於你?發你來世到清福中享些快活。那沈慶既多為不善,發他轉身為畜類,多受刀俎之苦。」批道:
4 審得:子孫乃祖宗繼述之所賴,祖宗亦子孫綿衍之所托。故瓜瓞延於始祖,麟趾發其徵祥。於公之門必大,王氏之蔭自垂。是以三代積善,方許後世多嗣。一念之至孝,不及改稔惡之堂;數端之微善,何能昭象賢之嘗及?雖非誣告,亦屬癡想。在生無應,轉世再報。
5 批完,發去訖。
