下跪求憐 - 古德明

The Battle of Bannockburn, fought in June 1314, was an important battle of the First War of Scottish Independence. Before the fight began, the Scots fell upon their knees and prayed for victory.
"They kneel!" exclaimed some of the English soldiers, who were witnessing the scene from their own positions. "They beg for mercy!" "Do not deceive yourselves," answered a Scottish noble loyal to King Edward of England. "They beg for mercy, it is true, but only from God."
Mistakes on the part of the English resulted in the Scots obtaining a great advantage. And when the English, mistaking a party of boys who rushed towards the field for the sake of plunder for a new Scottish force, fled from the scene, the Scottish victory was complete.
一三一四年六月的班諾克之戰,是蘇格蘭第一次獨立戰爭之中一場重要戰役。戰鬥之前,蘇格蘭將士跪下來,祈求勝利。
英軍在他們的陣地看到這情況,有些就說:「他們下跪,乞求憐憫!」一個忠於英王愛德華的蘇格蘭貴族回答:「不要自欺吧。他們的確是乞求憐憫,但只是乞求上帝憐憫。」
英軍犯了一些錯誤,以至蘇格蘭軍隊佔盡上風。最後,英軍看見一群少年往戰場跑來,不知道他們只是要搶掠,還以為是蘇格蘭的生力軍,慌忙逃竄。蘇格蘭於是大獲全勝。
