Good And Evil Both Explained 善恶并明

众生以十事为善,亦以十事为恶。
何等为十?
身三、口四、意三。身三者,杀盗淫。
口四者,两舌、恶口、妄言、绮语。
意三者,嫉恚痴。
如是十事,不顺圣道,名十恶行。
是恶若止,名十善行耳。

— 释迦牟尼佛
《四十二章经》: 第四章

Sentient beings are with ten matters as good, likewise with ten matters as evil. What are the ten? Of the body, are three, of speech, are four, and of the mind, are three. Of the body, those three are killing, stealing and sexual misconduct. Of speech, those four are double-tongued speech, harsh speech, false speech and frivolous speech. Of the mind, those three are jealousy i.e. also with greed, anger and delusion. Such ten matters, not according with the noble path, are named the Ten Evil Practices. These evils if stopped, are named the Ten Good Practices.

— Śākyamuni Buddha
(Sūtra Of 42 Sections: 4th Section)
