康熙字典文字版 【寅集上】【寸字部】 寺
【廣韻】【集韻】【韻會】𠀤祥吏切,音嗣。【說文】廷也,有法度者也。从寸㞢聲。【徐曰】寸,法度也,守也。【釋名】寺,嗣也,官治事者相嗣續於其內也。【唐書·百官表】漢以太常,光祿,勳衛尉,太僕,廷尉,大鴻臚,宗正,司農,少府爲九卿。後魏以來,卿名雖仍舊,而所蒞之局謂之寺,因名九寺。又【漢書註】凡府廷所在,皆謂之寺。 又漢明帝時,攝摩騰自西域白馬駝經來,初止鴻臚寺,遂取寺名,爲創立白馬寺。後名浮屠所居皆曰寺。 又宦寺。【詩·秦風】寺人之令。【傳】內小臣也。令,使也。又【周禮·天官】掌王之內人及女宮之戒今。鄭註寺之言侍也。○按註疏蓋以侍釋寺義,非。轉音時吏切,讀若侍,《正譌》合寺、侍爲一,非。 【集韻】或作䦙。
考證:〔【周禮·天官】寺人,掌王之內人。【註】寺之言侍也,取親近侍御之義。〕 謹按此所引文義未全,謹照原增改爲:掌王之內人及女宮之戒今。鄭註寺之言侍也。
