The Judgement
The Power of the Great. Perseverance furthers.

The Image
Thunder in heaven above: The image of the Power of the Great. Thus the superior man does not tread upon paths That do not accord with established order.

The lines:
Nine at the bottom means:
Power in the toes.
Continuing brings misfortune.
This is certainly true.

Nine in the second place means:
Perseverance brings good fortune.

Nine in the third place means:
The inferior man works through power.
The superior man does not act thus.
To continue is dangerous.
A goat butts against a hedge
And gets its horns entangled.

() Nine in the fourth place means:
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Remorse disappears.
The hedge opens; there is no entanglement.
Power depends upon the axle of a big cart.

Six in the fifth place means:
Loses the goat with ease.
No remorse.

Six at the top means:
A goat butts against a hedge.
It cannot go backward, it cannot go forward.
Nothing serves to further.
If one notes the difficulty, this brings good fortune.
