Line 1 comment: Checked by a metal brake: pure fortune. There's a place to go, but misfortune will be seen. A weak pig will surely falter.

Line 2 comment: The wrapping has fish. No fault. Not gainful for guests.

Line 3 comment: Buttocks without skin: one walks uneasily. Harsh, but no great fault.

Line 4 comment: The wrapping has no fish: the start of misfortune.

Line 5 comment: Like a gourd surrounded by willows, and held in place, there comes a falling from heaven.

Line 6 comment: Copulating with a horn. Remorse. No fault.

The image Wind under heaven: copulating. The sovereign issues commands to the four quarters.
