The Judgement


    Work on What Has Been Spoiled

    Has supreme success.


    It furthers one to cross the great water.

    Before the starting point, three days.

    After the starting point, three days.



The Image


    The wind blows low on the mountain:

    The image of Decay.

    Thus the superior man stirs up the people


    And strengthens their spirit.



The Lines

    In continuing one sees humiliation.




    () Six in the fifth place means:
