成语故事:三令五申 To repeat an order time and again
三令五申
sān lìng wǔ shēn
To repeat an order time and again
三 and 五 are numbers, 3 and 5, here meaning a lot of times, 令 and 申 both mean orders. We use this idiom 三令五申 to emphasize on a certain important matter that would be repeated again and again. It also means that the order needs to be taken seriously especially when the leader repeats it for many times.
