The Judgement

Waiting. If you are sincere,
You have light and success.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
It furthers one to cross the great water.

The Image

Clouds rise up to heaven:
The image of Waiting.
Thus the superior man eats and drinks,
Is joyous and of good cheer.

The Lines

Nine in the third place means:
Waiting in the mud
Brings about the arrival of the enemy.
() Nine in the fifth place means:
Waiting at meat and drink.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

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.
