    Firm seclusion within the family.

    Remorse disappears.

    She should not follow her whims.

    She must attend within to the food.

    Perseverance brings good fortune.

    Nine in the third place means:

    When tempers flare up in the family,

    Too great severity brings remorse.

    Good fortune nonetheless.

    When woman and child dally and laugh,

    It leads in the end to humiliation.

    Six in the fourth place means:

    She is the treasure of the house.

    Great good fortune.

    () Nine in the fifth place means:

    As a king he approaches his family.
