The Judgement
Retreat. Success.
In what is small, perseverance furthers.

The Image
Mountain under heaven: the image of Retreat.
Thus the superior man keeps the inferior man
at a distance, Not angrily but with reserve.


The Lines

At the tail in retreat. This is dangerous.
One must not wish to undertake anything.

He holds him fast with yellow oxhide.
No one can tear him loose.

A halted retreat
Is nerve-wracking and dangerous.
To retain people as men- and maidservants
Brings good fortune.


Voluntary retreat brings good fortune to the
superior man
And downfall to the inferior man.


Friendly retreat. Perseverance brings good
fortune.


Cheerful retreat. Everything serves to further.
