The Judgement
Progress. The powerful prince
Is honored with horses in large numbers.
In a single day he is granted audience three
times.

The Image
The sun rises over the earth:
The image of Progress. Thus the superior
man himself Brightens his bright virtue.

The Lines

Progressing, but turned back.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
If one meets with no confidence, one should
remain calm. No mistake.


Progressing, but in sorrow. Perseverance
brings good fortune. Then one obtains great
happiness from one's ancestress.


All are in accord. Remorse disappears.


Progress like a hamster.
Perseverance brings danger.

Remorse disappears. Take not gain and loss
to heart. Undertakings bring good fortune.
Everything serves to further.

Making progress with the horns is permissible
Only for the purpose of punishing one's own
city. To be conscious of danger brings good
fortune. No blame. Perseverance brings
humiliation.
