The Judment
Possession in Great Measure. Supreme success.

The Image
Fire in heaven above: The image of Possession in Great Measure. Thus the superior man curbs evil and furthers good, And thereby obeys the benevolent will of heaven.

The lines:
Nine at the bottom means:
No relationship with what is harmful;
There is no blame in this.
If one remains conscious of difficulty,
One remains without blame.

Nine in the second place means:
A big wagon for loading.
One may undertake something.
No blame.

Nine in the third place means:
A prince offers it to the Son of Heaven.
A petty man cannot do this.

Nine in the fourth place means:
He makes a difference
Between himself and his neighbor.
No blame.

() Six in the fifth place means:
He whose truth is accessible, yet dignified,
Has good fortune.

Nine at the top means:
He is blessed by heaven.
Good fortune.
Nothing that does not further.
