The Judgement
Innocence. Supreme success.
Perseverance furthers.
If someone is not as he should be,
He has misfortune,
And it does not further him
To undertake anything.

The Image
Under heaven thunder rolls:
All things attain the natural state of innocence.
Thus the kings of old,
Rich in virtue, and in harmony with the time,
Fostered and nourished all beings.

The Lines

Innocent behavior brings good fortune.

If one does not count on the harvest while
plowing,
Nor on the use of the ground while clearing it,
It furthers one to undertake something.

Undeserved misfortune.
The cow that was tethered by someone
Is the wanderer's gain, the citizen's loss.


He who can be persevering
Remains without blame.


Use no medicine in an illness
Incurred through no fault of your own.
It will pass of itself.

Innocent action brings misfortune.
Nothing furthers.
