|Cho'^e'n, the arousing (shock, thunder)||Yu, enthusiasm|
Shock brings success.
Shock comes (oh, oh!)
Laughing words (ha, ha!)
The shock terrifies for a hundred miles,
And he does not let fall the sacrificial spoon and chalice.
Thunder repeated: the image of Shock.
Thus in fear and trembling
The superior man sets his life in order
And examines himself.
Enthusiasm. It furthers one to install helpers
And to set armies marching.
Thunder comes resounding out of the earth:
The image of Enthusiasm.
Thus the ancient kings made music
In order to honor merit,
And offered it with splendor
To the Supreme Deity,
Inviting their ancestors to be present.
