The Judgement

    Approach has supreme success.

    Perseverance furthers.

    When the eighth month comes,

    There will be misfortune.

The Image

    The earth above the lake:

    The image of Approach.

    Thus the superior man is inexhaustible

    In his will to teach,

    And without limits

    In his tolerance and protection of the people.
