勇于敢则杀   If you are courageous in daring you will die.
勇于不敢则活   If you are courageous in not-daring you will live.
此两者或利或害   Among these two, one is beneficial and the other is harmful.
天之所恶孰知其故   Who understands the reason why Heaven dislikes what it dislikes?
是以圣人犹难之   Even the sage has difficulty in knowing this.
天之道不争而善胜   The Way of Heaven is to win easily without struggle.
不言而善应   To respond well without words,
不召而自来   To naturally come without special invitation,
繟然而善谋   To plan well without anxiety.
天网恢恢   Heaven’s net is vast.
疏而不失   It is loose. Yet nothing slips through.
