The Judgement


    Increase. It furthers one

    To undertake something.

    It furthers one to cross the great water.



The Image


    Wind and thunder: the image of Increase.

    Thus the superior man:

    If he sees good, he imitates it;

    If he has faults, he rids himself of them.



The Lines


    [] Nine at the beginning means:


    It furthers one to accomplish great deeds.

    Supreme good fortune. No blame.




    () Six in the second place means:

    Someone does indeed increase him;

    Ten pairs of tortoises cannot oppose it.

    Constant perseverance brings good fortune.

    The king presents him before God.


    Good fortune.




    Six in the third place means:

    One is enriched through unfortunate events.

    No blame, if you are sincere

    And walk in the middle,

    And report with a seal to the prince.




    [] Six in the fourth place means:

    If you walk in the middle

    And report to the prince,

    He will follow.

    It furthers one to be used

    In the removal of the capital.





    () Nine in the fifth place means:

    If in truth you have a kind heart, ask not.

    Supreme good fortune.

    Truly, kindness will be recognized as your virtue.




    Nine at the top means:

    He brings increase to no one.

    Indeed, someone even strikes him.


    He does not keep his heart constantly steady.

    Misfortune.
