The Judgement
Peace. The small departs,
The great approaches.
Good fortune. Success.

The Image
Heaven and earth unite: the image of Peace.
Thus the ruler Divides and completes the
course of heaven and earth; He furthers and
regulates the gifts of heaven and earth,
And so aids the people.

The Lines

When ribbon grass is pulled up, the sod
comes with it. Each according to his kind.
Undertakings bring good fortune.


Bearing with the uncultured in gentleness,
Fording the river with resolution,
Not neglecting what is distant,
Not regarding one's companions:
Thus one may manage to walk in the middle.

No plain not followed by a slope.
No going not followed by a return.
He who remains persevering in danger
Is without blame. Do not complain about this
truth; Enjoy the good fortune you still possess.

He flutters down, not boasting of his wealth,
Together with his neighbor,
Guileless and sincere.

The sovereign I Gives his daughter in marriage.
This brings blessing
And supreme good fortune.

The wall falls back into the moat.
Use no army now.
Make your commands known within your own
town. Perseverance brings humiliation.
