The Judgement
Coming to Meet. The maiden is powerful.
One should not marry such a maiden.


The Image
Under heaven, wind:
The image of Coming to Meet.
Thus does the prince act when disseminating
his commands
And proclaiming them to the four quarters of
heaven.

The Lines

It must be checked with a brake of bronze.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
If one lets it take its course, one experiences
misfortune.
Even a lean pig has it in him to rage around.

There is a fish in the tank. No blame.
Does not further guests.


There is no skin on his thighs,
And walking comes hard.
If one is mindful of the danger,
No great mistake is made.

No fish in the tank.
This leads to misfortune.

A melon covered with willow leaves.
Hidden lines.
Then it drops down to one from heaven.


He comes to meet with his horns.
Humiliation. No blame.
