The Judgement
Revolution. On your own day
You are believed. Supreme success,
Furthering through perseverance.
Remorse disappears.


The Image
Fire in the lake: the image of Revolution.
Thus the superior man Sets the calendar in
order And makes the seasons clear.

The Lines

Wrapped in the hide of a yellow cow.

When one's own day comes, one may create
revolution.
Starting brings good fortune. No blame.

Starting brings misfortune. Perseverance
brings danger. When talk of revolution has
gone the rounds three times, One may commit
himself, And men will believe him.

Remorse disappears. Men believe him.
Changing the form of government brings good
fortune.

The great man changes like a tiger.
Even before he questions the oracle
He is believed.

The superior man changes like a panther.
The inferior man molts in the face.
Starting brings misfortune.
To remain persevering brings good fortune.
