烈文 LIE WEN

烈文辟公、錫茲祉福。
惠我無疆、子孫保之。
無封靡于爾邦、維王其崇之。
念茲戎功、繼序其皇之。
無競維人、四方其訓之。
不顯維德、百辟其刑之。
於乎前王不忘。

Ye , brilliant and accomplished princes ,
Have conferred on me this happiness .
Your favours to me are without limit ,
And my descendants will preserve [the fruits of] them .
Be not mercenary nor extravagant in your States ,
And the king will honour you .
Thinking of this great service ,
He will enlarge the dignity of your successors .
What is most powerful is the being the man ; --
Its influence will be felt throughout your States .
What is most distinguished is being virtuous ; --
It will secure the imitation of all the princes .
Ah ! the former kings are not forgotten !
