The Judgement

    Splitting Apart. It does not further one

    To go anywhere.

The Image

    The mountain rests upon the earth:

    The image of Splitting Apart.

    Thus those above can insure their position

    Only by giving generously to those below.

The Lines

    Six at the beginning means:

    The leg of the bed is split.

    Those who persevere are destroyed.


    Six in the second place means:

    The bed is split at the edge.

    Those who persevere are destroyed.


    Six in the third place means:

    He splits with them. No blame.

    Six in the fourth place means:

    The bed is split up to the skin.


    Six in the fifth place means:

    A shoal of fishes. Favor comes through the court ladies.

    Everything acts to further.

    () Nine at the top means:

    There is a large fruit still uneaten.

    The superior man receives a carriage.

    The house of the inferior man is split apart.
