The lines:
Nine at the bottom means:
Going quickly when one's tasks are finished
Is without blame.
But one must reflect on how much one may decrease others.

Nine in the second place means:
Perseverance furthers.
To undertake something brings misfortune.
Without decreasing oneself,
One is able to bring increase to others.

[] Six in the third place means:
When three people journey together,
Their number decreases by one.
When one man journeys alone,
He finds a companion.

Six in the fourth place means:
If a man decreases his faults,
It makes the other hasten to come and rejoice.
No blame.

() Six in the fifth place means:
Someone does indeed increase him.
Ten pairs of tortoises cannot oppose it.
Supreme good fortune.

[] Nine at the top means:
If one is increased without depriving others,
There is no blame.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
It furthers one to undertake something.
One obtains servants
But no longer has a separate home.
