《第三十八回绝  嗣》[View] [Edit] [History]

1 话说东京城内有个张柔,颇称行善,临老无子;城外有个沈庆,种种作恶,盗跖无异,倒有五男二女,七子团圆。因此张柔死得不服,到阎君处呈一状词。告道:
2 告为绝嗣不宜事;谚云:积德多嗣。经云:为善有后。理所当然,事有必至。某三畏存心,四知质鬼;不敢自附善门,庶几可免恶行。年老无嗣,终身遗恨;乞查前数,辨明后事。上告。
3 包公看罢道:「哪有为善的反致绝嗣之事,毕竟你祖父遗下冤孽。到司善薄上查来。」鬼吏查报,善簿上并无张柔名字;包公命再司恶簿上查来,鬼吏查报,恶簿上有张柔名字,三代祖张异,过恶多端,因该绝嗣。包公曰:「你虽有行善好处,掩不得祖宗之恶,你莫怪天道不平。」张柔曰:「如何象沈庆这样作恶,反生七子?」包公曰:「也与他查来。」鬼吏报曰:「沈庆一生作恶,应该绝嗣;只因他三代祖宗俱是积德的,因此不绝其后。」包公曰:「正是积善之家,必有馀庆;积不善之家,必有馀殃。大凡人家行善,必有几代善,方叫做积善;几代行不善,方叫做不善。岂谓天道真无报应,远在儿孙近在身。张柔你一生既行得几件善,难道就没有报应于你?发你来世到清福中享些快活。那沈庆既多为不善,发他转身为畜类,多受刀俎之苦。」批道:
4 审得:子孙乃祖宗继述之所赖,祖宗亦子孙绵衍之所托。故瓜瓞延于始祖,麟趾发其徵祥。于公之门必大,王氏之荫自垂。是以三代积善,方许后世多嗣。一念之至孝,不及改稔恶之堂;数端之微善,何能昭象贤之尝及?虽非诬告,亦属痴想。在生无应,转世再报。
5 批完,发去讫。
