Abhasita Sutta — What Was Not Said
Translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

"Monks, these two slander the Tathagata. Which two? He who explains what was not said or spoken by the Tathagata as said or spoken by the Tathagata. And he who explains what was said or spoken by the Tathagata as not said or spoken by the Tathagata. These are two who slander the Tathagata."

AN 2.23: Abhasita Sutta
Translated by Bhikkhu Bodhi


“Bhikkhus, these two misrepresent the Tathāgata. Which two? One who explains what has not been stated and uttered by the Tathāgata as having been stated and uttered by him, and one who explains what has been stated and uttered by the Tathāgata as not having been stated and uttered by him. These two misrepresent the Tathāgata.

“Bhikkhus, these two do not misrepresent the Tathāgata. Which two? One who explains what has not been stated and uttered by the Tathāgata as not having been stated and uttered by him, and one who explains what has been stated and uttered by the Tathāgata as having been stated and uttered by him. These two do not misrepresent the Tathāgata.”

[Bhikkhu Bodhi notes that PTS divides the above into two suttas, whereas other versions do not.]
