增支部5集14經/擴大經(莊春江譯)
  「比丘們!有這些五力,哪五個呢?信力、活力之力、念力、定力、慧力。
  比丘們!而什麼是信力?比丘們!這裡,聖弟子是有信者,他信如來的:『像這樣,那位世尊阿羅漢、遍正覺者、明行具足者善逝世間知者應該被調御人的無上調御者天人之師佛陀、世尊。』比丘們!這被稱為信力。
  比丘們!而什麼是活力之力?比丘們!這裡,聖弟子為了不善法的捨斷、為了善法的具足,住於活力已被發動的、剛毅的、堅固努力的、在諸善法上不放下負擔的。比丘們!這被稱為活力之力。
  比丘們!而什麼是念力?比丘們!這裡,聖弟子是有念者,具備最高的念與聰敏,是很久以前做過的及很久以前說過的記得者、回憶者。比丘們!這被稱為念力。
  比丘們!而什麼是定力?比丘們!這裡,聖弟子就從離諸欲後,從離諸不善法後,進入後住於有尋、有伺離而生喜、樂的初禪,從尋與伺的平息,自身內的明淨心的專一性,進入後住於無尋、無伺,定而生喜、樂的第二禪,從喜的褪去、住於平靜、有念正知、以身體感受樂,進入後住於凡聖者們告知『他是平靜者、具念者、安樂住者』的第三禪,從樂的捨斷與從苦的捨斷,就在之前諸喜悅、憂的滅沒,進入後住於不苦不樂,由平靜而遍淨之念的第四禪。比丘們!這被稱為定力。
  比丘們!而什麼是慧力?比丘們!這裡,聖弟子是有慧者,具備導向生起與滅沒、聖、洞察、導向苦的完全滅盡之慧。比丘們!這被稱為慧力。
  比丘們!這些是五力。」
