Line 1 comment: Crowing delight. Misfortune.

Line 2 comment: Upright like a rock in character. In less than a day one shows that purity. Fortune.

Line 3 comment: Wide-eyed delight is regrettable. If you are late you will have regrets.

Line 4 comment: Through delight, the great attains. Do not doubt it! Friends gather like hair in a clasp.

Line 5 comment: Firm illness persists, but there is no death.

Line 6 comment: Dark delight succeeds. Have a change of mind and there will be no fault.

The image Thunder explodes, shaking the earth: delight. The early kings made music, glorifying virtue as the highest offering to God, and so they were worthy of their ancestors.
