孺子養我甚謹,子奉祀而妾事我我不聊也,且吾聞
主君之母不妾事人,今我無子,於禮斥絀之人也,而得
留以盡其節,是我幸也,今又煩孺子不改故節,我甚内慚,
吾願出居外,以時相見,我甚便之,傅妾泣而對曰,夫人
欲使靈氏受三不祥耶,不幸早終,是一不祥也,夫人無子
而婢妾有子,是二不祥也,夫人欲出居外,使婢子居内,是
三不祥也,妾聞忠臣事君,無懈戒時,孝子養親,患無日
也,妾豈敢以少貴之故,變妾之節哉,供養固妾之職也,夫
人又何勤乎,夫人曰,無子之人,而辱主君之母,雖子欲爾,
衆人謂我不知禮也,吾終願居外而已,傅妾退而謂其子
曰,吾聞君子處順,奉上下之儀,修先古之禮,此順道也,今
夫人難我,将欲居外,使我居内,此逆也,處逆而生,豈若守
