有声名著《格列佛游记》10:第2章 在利力浦特的生活(4)

I think I should give you some general information about Lilliput.Most Lilliputians are about fifteen centimetres tall.The birds and animals are,of course,much smaller than the people,and the tallest trees are only a little taller than I am.
我想我应该给你们讲一些关于利力浦特的大概情况。大多数利力浦特人大约15厘米高。鸟兽当然比人要小不少,而最高的树也只是比我高一点。

All crimes here are punished. But if someone is accused of a crime and then it is proved that the accuser is lying,the accuser is immediately killed.
这里所有的罪行都要受到惩处。如果有人受到指控而后来证明原告在撒谎,则原告会被立即杀死。

Lilliputians believe that there are two sides to the law.Criminals must be punished,but people of good character must be rewarded.So if a man can prove that he has obeyed every law for six years,he receives a present of money from the King.
利力浦特人相信法律有两面,罪犯必须受到惩处,品行好的人必须受到奖励。因而,如果谁可以证明自己连续六年遵守各项法律,他将得到国王一笔奖励。

They also believe that any man who is honest,truthful,and good can serve his King and country.It is more important to have a good character than to be clever or intelligent.
他们也相信任何人只要诚实、可以信赖、是个好人就能够为国王和国家效力。品行端正比聪明、智慧更重要。

However,only those who believe in God are allowed to be the King s officials.
但是,只有那些相信上帝的人才能当国王的官员。

Many of their laws and customs are very different from ours,but human nature is the same in every country.
他们的许多法律和习俗都与我们的很不一样,可是人的本性在每一个国家都是一样的。

The Lilliputians,like us,have learnt bad ways—choosing officials because they are able to dance on a rope is just one example.
跟我们一样,利力浦特人也学会了一些不好的东西,因为谁能在绳上跳舞就选为官员只是其中一例。
