In the middle of the earth is water:
The image of the Army.
Thus the superior man increases his masses
By generosity toward the people.
Six at the bottom means:
An army must set forth in proper order.
If the order is not good, misfortune threatens.
() Nine in the second place means:
In the midst of the army.
Good fortune. No blame.
The king bestows a triple decoration.
Six in the third place means:
Perchance the army carries corpses in the wagon.
Six in the fourth place means:
The army retreats. No blame.
() Six in the fifth place means:
There is game in the field.
It furthers one to catch it.
Let the eldest lead the army.
The younger transports corpses;
Then perseverance brings misfortune.
Six at the top means:
The great prince issues commands,
Founds states, vests families with fiefs.
Inferior people should not be employed.
