多行不义必自毙

He Who Repeatedly Commits Wrongdoing Will Come to No Good End.

不合道义的事情干多了,必定自取灭亡。“不义”指行为违背道义。“义”是社会普遍遵循的道德规范;“义”又与“宜”相通,指循理合宜。中华民族自古重“义”,小到个人,大到国家,都强调行事以“义”为依据。凡是违法乱纪、祸国殃民、作恶多端的人,都不会有好下场。

A person who repeatedly acts immorally will only end up in total failure. Buyi (不义) is an act which violates the principles of yi (义 righteousness). Righteousness is the moral code broadly accepted by a society; it is synonymous with yi (宜 propriety), meaning the observance of what is fit and proper. The Chinese have championed righteousness since ancient times, believing that all acts, whether those of individuals or of a nation, should be based on righteousness. Anyone who breaks laws, harms the country or the people, or commits numerous acts of wrongdoing will come to no good end.

引例 Citation:

◎多行不义必自毙。子姑待之。(《左传·隐公元年》)

(不合道义的事情干多了,必定自取灭亡。您姑且等着吧。)

He who repeatedly commits wrongdoing will come to no good end. You just wait and see! (Zuo’s Commentary on The Spring and Autumn Annals)
