  1. 吾士無餘財非惡貨也無餘命非惡壽也
  2. 令發之日士卒坐者涕霑襟偃臥者涕交頤投之無所往者諸劌之勇也


27. If our soldiers are not overburdened with money, it is not because they have a distaste for riches; if their lives are not unduly long, it is not because they are disinclined to longevity.

28. On the day they are ordered out to battle, your soldiers may weep, those sitting up bedewing their garments, and those lying down letting the tears run down their cheeks.
