The Judgement
Revolution. On your own day
You are believed.
Supreme success,
Furthering through perseverance.
Remorse disappears.

The Image
Fire in the lake: the image of Revolution.
Thus the superior man
Sets the calendar in order
And makes the seasons clear.

The lines:
Nine at the bottom means:
Wrapped in the hide of a yellow cow.

Six in the second place means:
When one's own day comes, one may create revolution.
Starting brings good fortune. No blame.

Nine in the third place means:
Starting brings misfortune.
Perseverance brings danger.
When talk of revolution has gone the rounds three times,
One may commit himself,
And men will believe him.

Nine in the fourth place means:
Remorse disappears. Men believe him.
Changing the form of government brings good fortune.

() Nine in the fifth place means:
The great man changes like a tiger.
Even before he questions the oracle
He is believed.

Six at the top means:
The superior man changes like a panther.
The inferior man molts in the face.
Starting brings misfortune.
To remain persevering brings good fortune.
