Excerpt from the origin:

一、孔子的身世

  孔子,名丘,字仲尼,其先世出自王家。据《史记·孔子世家》记载,商纣王的哥哥、殷末“三仁”(即箕予、微子、比干)之一微子启,就是孔子的远祖。

  西周初年,微予启受封于宋,建都于商丘,五传至弗父何,后来,弗父何礼让其国于其弟宋厉公,自为宋国大夫,弗父何是孔予的十世祖。

  由此,厉公一系世掌宋国君权,维系着并不出色的世袭统治。弗父何一系则成为宋国辅政公族,这样三世后传至正考父。

  正考父知书识理,以谦谦君子知名后世,他熟悉商代文献,曾校阅过颂扬殷人祖先功业的《商之名颂》于周太史氏。他受君委任,谦恭有礼,不与人争。
