The Judgement
The Family. The perseverance of the woman
furthers.



The Image
Wind comes forth from fire:
The image of the Family. Thus the superior
man has substance in his words
And duration in his way of life.

The Lines

Firm seclusion within the family.
Remorse disappears.


She should not follow her whims.
She must attend within to the food.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

When tempers flare up in the family,
Too great severity brings remorse.
Good fortune nonetheless.
When woman and child dally and laugh,
It leads in the end to humiliation.


She is the treasure of the house.
Great good fortune.

As a king he approaches his family.
Fear not. Good fortune.

His work commands respect.
In the end good fortune comes.
