义纵调到南阳任太守时,一个做恶多端的豪强地主宁成,正在南阳居住。宁成为了讨好义纵,每次迎送都装出谦恭的样子。但是,义纵对他的恶行早有所闻,到南阳后立即展开调查,很快就查清他的罪行,把他关押起来。

后来,汉武帝又任命义纵做定襄太守。当时定襄的社会治安历史学家混乱。义纵到任以后,把押在狱中的没有加开具的二百多名重犯,以及为重犯开脱罪责进行贿赂的二百多名门客亲属,一律严加追究,拘捕治罪,一天之内处死的就有四百多名。从此以后,定襄的人一听到义纵的名字就“不寒而栗”--天气不冷却浑身发抖。

 

不寒而栗 英文

Shivering All Over Though Not Cold

During the Han Dynasty Han dynasty (hàn cháo 汉朝, 206BC—220AD), there was a man whose name was Yi Zong (yìzòng 义纵). Because of the special Kindness of the mother of the emperor, Yi Zong was made a magistrate in one county. After taking up the official post ,he did very well in managing the official business. He Was courageous and resolute in bandling cases, and punished according to law anybody who violated the law, no matter whether he was a despotic gentleman who was rich and powerful or was one of the common people.

When YiZong was transferred to be the prefect of the Nanyang Prefecture (nán yáng jùn 南阳郡), Ning Cheng (nìng chéng 宁成), a despotic landlord who stopped at nothing in doing evil, was living there, In order to ingratiate himself with Yi Zong, Ning Cheng pretended to be very modest and courteous every time he met Yi Zong and saw him off. But Yi Zong had heard of the evil conducts of Ning Cheng already and, soon after he took office in Nanyang,he made investigations. It did not take much time for him to find out Ning cheng's crimes and had him put in prison.

Later, Emperor Wu Di (hàn wǔ dì汉武帝) of the Han Dynasty appointed Yi Zong the prefect of the Dingxiang Prefecture (dìng xiāng 定襄). At that time, the publica order in Dingxiang was very chaotic.When he took office there, there were 200 convicts in prison who had committed felonies had no implements of punishment on them.There were also more than 200 persons who offered bribes in order to absolve those serious offenders trom guilt.Yi Zong treated the matter severely. He arrested all those bribers and punished the bribers and those serious offenders already in prison severely. More than 400 convicts were executed in a bay. From that day on, whenever the name of Yi Zong was mentioned.people in Dingxinang would tremble with fear --they would shiver all over though not cold. This story appears in the "Lives of the Merciless Judges and Prison Wardens "in The Historical Records written by Sima Pian. The set phrase "shivering all over though not cold "is used to refer to the state of being extremely afraid.
