 The Judgement

      Contemplation. The ablution has been made,
      But not yet the offering.
      Full of trust they look up to him.

 The Image

      The image of Contemplation.
      Thus the kings of old visited 
          the regions of the world,
      Contemplated the people,
      And gave them instruction.

      Contemplation through the crack of the door.
      Furthering for the perseverance of a woman.

      Contemplation of my life.
      The superior man is without blame.

 ()   Nine at the top means:

 The Image

      The image of The Army.
      Thus the superior man increases his masses
      By generosity toward the people.
