Translation:

Thus it may be known that the leader of armies is the arbiter of the people’s fate, the man on whom it depends whether the nation shall be in peace or in peril.

Commentary

The actions of the leader will build reputation. A useful reputation to seek is one of just power, where you can and will mete out justice where it is due. When people think you fair, they may fear and will trust you. Respect is a most powerful tool.
