The Judgement
Modesty creates success. The superior man carries things through.

The Image
Within the earth, a mountain: The image of Modesty. Thus the superior man reduces that which is too much, And augments that which is too little. He weighs things and makes them equal.

The lines:
Six at the bottom means:
A superior man modest about his modesty
May cross the great water.
Good fortune.

Six in the second place means:
Modesty that comes to expression.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

() Nine in the third place means:
A superior man of modesty and merit
Carries things to conclusion.
Good fortune.

Six in the fourth place means:
Nothing that would not further modesty
In movement.

Six in the fifth place means:
No boasting of wealth before one's neighbor.
It is favorable to attack with force.
Nothing that would not further.

Six at the top means:
Modesty that comes to expression.
It is favorable to set armies marching
To chastise one's own city and one's country.
