The Judgement
Obstruction. The southwest furthers.
The northeast does not further.
It furthers one to see the great man.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

The Image
Water on the mountain:
The image of Obstruction.
Thus the superior man turns his attention to himself
And molds his character.

The lines:
Six at the bottom means:
Going leads to obstructions,
Coming meets with praise.

Six in the second place means:
The king's servant is beset by obstruction upon obstruction,
But it is not his own fault.

Nine in the third place means:
Going leads to obstructions;
Hence he comes back.

Six in the fourth place means:
Going leads to obstructions,
Coming leads to union.

() Nine in the fifth place means:
In the midst of the greatest obstructions,
Friends come.

Six at the top means:
Going leads to obstructions,
Coming leads to great good fortune.
It furthers one to see the great man.
