The Judgement
Preponderance of the Great. The ridgepole sags to the breaking point. It furthers one to have somewhere to go. Success..

The Image
The lake rises above the trees: The image of Preponderance of the Great. Thus the superior man, when he stands alone, Is unconcerned, And if he has to renounce the world, He is undaunted

The lines:

To spread white rushes underneath.
No blame.

Everything furthers.

Nine in the third place means:
The ridgepole sags to the breaking point.
Misfortune.

() Nine in the fourth place means:
The ridgepole is braced. Good fortune.
If there are ulterior motives, it is humiliating.

Nine in the fifth place means:
A withered poplar puts forth flowers.
An older woman takes a husband.
No blame. No praise.

Six at the top means:
One must go through the water.
It goes over one's head.
Misfortune. No blame.
