The Judgement
The Marrying Maiden.
Undertakings bring misfortune.
Nothing that would further.

The Image
Thunder over the lake:
The image of the Marrying Maiden.
Thus the superior man
Understands the transitory
In the light of the eternity of the end.

The lines:
Nine at the bottom means:
The marrying maiden as a concubine.
A lame man who is able to tread.
Undertakings bring good fortune.

Nine in the second place means:
A one-eyed man who is able to see.
The perseverance of a solitary man furthers.

[] Six in the third place means:
The marrying maiden as a slave.
She marries as a concubine.

Nine in the fourth place means:
The marrying maiden draws out the allotted time.
A late marriage comes in due course.

() Six in the fifth place means:
The sovereign I gave his daughter in marriage.
The embroidered garments of the princess
Were not as gorgeous
As those of the servingmaid.
The moon that is nearly full
Brings good fortune.

[] Six at the top means:
The woman holds the basket, but there are no fruits in it.
The man stabs the sheep, but no blood flows.
Nothing that acts to further.
