伐木丁丁,鳥鳴嚶嚶。
出自幽谷,遷于喬木。
嚶其鳴矣,求其友聲。
相彼鳥矣,猶求友聲。
矧伊人矣,不求友生。
神之聽之,終和且平。

On the trees go the blows zheng-zheng;
And the birds cry out ying-ying.
One issues from the dark valley,
And removes to the lofty tree,
While ying goes its cry,
Seeking with its voice its companion.
Look at the bird,
Bird as it is, seeking with its voice its companion;
And shall a man,
Not seek to have his friends?
Spiritual beings will then hearken to him;
He shall have harmony and peace.

伐木許許,釃酒有藇。
既有肥羜,以速諸父。
寧適不來,微我弗顧。
於粲洒掃,陳饋八簋。
既有肥牡,以速諸舅。
寧適不來,微我有咎。

Xu-xu they go, as they fell the trees.
I have strained off my spirits, till they are fine,
And the fatted lambs are provided,
To which to invite my paternal uncles.
It is better that something should keep them from coming,
Than that I should not have regarded them.
Oh! brightly I have sprinkled and swept my courtyard,
And arranged my viands, with eight dishes of grain, along with my fatted meat,
To which to invite my maternal uncles.
It is better that something should keep them from coming,
Than that there should be blame attaching to me.

伐木于阪,釃酒有衍。
籩豆有踐,兄弟無遠。
民之失德,乾餱以愆。
有酒湑我,無酒酤我。
坎坎鼓我,蹲蹲舞我。
迨我暇矣,飲此湑矣。

They fell down the trees along the hill-side.
I have strained off my spirits in abundance;
The dishes stand in rows,
And none of my brethren are absent.
The loss of kindly feeling among people,
May arise from faults in the matter of dry provisions.
If I have spirits I strain them, do I;
If I have no spirits, I buy them, do I;
I make the drums beat, do I;
I lead on the dance, do I.
Whenever we have leisure,
Let us drink the sparkling spirits.

Let us gather the thorn-ferns, let us gather the thorn-ferns;
The thorn-ferns are now springing up.
When shall we return? When shall we return?
It will be late in the [next] year.
Wife and husband will be separated,
Because of the Xian-yun.
We shall have no leisure to rest,
Because of the Xian-yun.

While our service on guard is not finished,
We can send no one home to enquire about our families.

But the king's business must not be slackly performed;
We shall have no leisure to rest.
Our sorrowing hearts are in great distress;
But we shall not return from our expedition.

彼爾維何,維常之華。

What is that so gorgeous?
It is the flowers of the cherry tree.
What carriage is that?
It is the carriage of our general.
His war carriage is yoked;
The four steeds are strong.
Dare we remain inactive?
In one month we shall have three victories.

There are the bow with its ivory ends, and the seal-skin quiver.
Shall we not daily warn one another?
The business of the Xian-yun is very urgent.

The willows were fresh and green;
Now, when we shall be returning,
The snow will be falling in clouds.
Long and tedious will be our marching;
We shall hunger; we shall thirst.

And no one knows our sadness.

To those pasture grounds.
' From the place of the son of Heaven,
Came an order to me to march, ' [said the general].
So he called his carriage-officers,
And told them to get the carriages all ready.
' The king's business, ' [said he], ' is surrounded with difficulties;
We must use despatch. '

To that suburban region.
The banner with tortoises and serpents was raised,
And the ox-tails set up at the top of its staff;
Did not it and the falcon banner,
Fly about grandly?

And the carriage-officers appeared full of care.

王命南仲,往城于方。

To go and build a wall in the [disturbed] region.
How numerous were his chariots!
How splendid his dragon, his tortoise and serpent flags!

To build a wall in that northern region.
Awe-inspiring was Nan Zhong;
The Xian-yun were sure to be swept away!

昔我往矣,黍稷方華。
今我來思,雨雪載塗。
王事多難,不遑啟居。
豈不懷歸,畏此簡書。

When we were marching at first,
The millets were in flower.
Now that we are returning,
The snow falls, and the roads are all mire.
The king's business was not to be slackly performed,
And we had not leisure to rest.
Did we not long to return?
But we were in awe of the orders in the tablets.

喓喓草蟲,趯趯阜螽。
未見君子,憂心忡忡。
既見君子,我心則降。
赫赫南仲,薄伐西戎。

' Yao-yao go the grass-insects,
And the hoppers leap about.
While we do not see our husbands,
Our hearts must be full of grief.
Let us but see our husbands,
And our hearts will be at rest. '
The awe-inspiring Nan Zhong,
Is smiting the Rong of the west.

春日遲遲,卉木萋萋。
倉庚喈喈,采蘩祁祁。
執訊獲醜,薄言還歸。
赫赫南仲,玁狁于夷。

The spring-days are lengthening out;
The plants and trees grow full of verdure;
The oriole's cry comes jie-jie;
[Our wives] go in crowds to gather the white southernwood.
With our prisoners for the question and our captive crowd,
We return.
Awe-inspiring is Nan zhong;
The Xian-yun are pacified.

In the honoured apartment we complete our carousal.

湛湛露斯,在彼杞棘。
顯允君子,莫不令德。

Heavy lies the dew;
On those willows and jujube trees.
Distinguished and true are my noble guests, -
Every one of excellent virtue.

其桐其椅,其實離離。
豈弟君子,莫不令儀。

From the Tong and the Yi,
Their fruit hangs down.
Happy and self-possessed are my noble guests, -
Every one of them of excellent deportment.
