The Judgement
Dispersion. Success. The king approaches
his temple. It furthers one to cross the great
water. Perseverance furthers.

The Image
The wind drives over the water:
The image of Dispersion. Thus the kings of old
sacrificed to the Lord And built temples.

The Lines

He brings help with the strength of a horse.
Good fortune.

At the dissolution He hurries to that which
supports him. Remorse disappears.


He dissolves his self. No remorse.

He dissolves his bond with his group.
Supreme good fortune. Dispersion leads in
turn to accumulation. This is something that
ordinary men do not think of.

His loud cries are as dissolving as sweat.
Dissolution. A king abides without blame.

He dissolves his blood.
Departing, keeping at a distance, going out,
Is without blame.
