The Judgement

    The Wanderer. Success through smallness.

    Perseverance brings good fortune

    To the wanderer.

The Image

    Fire on the mountain:

    The image of The Wanderer.

    Thus the superior man

    Is clear-minded and cautious

    In imposing penalties,

    And protracts no lawsuits.

The Lines

    Six at the beginning means:

    If the wanderer busies himself with trivial things,

    He draws down misfortune upon himself.

    Six in the second place means:

    The wanderer comes to an inn.

    He has his property with him.

    He wins the steadfastness of a young servant.

    Nine in the third place means:

    The wanderer's inn burns down.

    He loses the steadfastness of his young servant.


    Nine in the fourth place means:

    The wanderer rests in a shelter.

    He obtains his property and an ax.

    My heart is not glad.

    () Six in the fifth place means:

    He shoots a pheasant.

    It drops with the first arrow.

    In the end this brings both praise and office.

    Nine at the top means:

    The bird's nest burns up.

    The wanderer laughs at first,

    Then must needs lament and weep.

    Through carelessness he loses his cow.
