The Judgement
The Army. The army needs perseverance And a strong man. Good fortune without blame.

The Image
In the middle of the earth is water: The image of the Army. Thus the superior man increases his masses By generosity toward the people.

The lines:
Six at the bottom means:
An army must set forth in proper order.
If the order is not good, misfortune threatens.

() Nine in the second place means:
In the midst of the army.
Good fortune. No blame.
The king bestows a triple decoration.

Six in the third place means:
Perchance the army carries corpses in the wagon.

Six in the fourth place means:
The army retreats. No blame.

() Six in the fifth place means:
There is game in the field.
It furthers one to catch it.
Without blame.
Let the eldest lead the army.
The younger transports corpses;
Then perseverance brings misfortune.

Six at the top means:
The great prince issues commands,
Founds states, vests families with fiefs.
Inferior people should not be employed.
