The image

Heaven and earth unite: the image of peace. Thus the ruler shares and completes the course of heaven and earth, promotes and arranges the gifts of heaven and earth and thereby stands by the people.

Peace. The small departs, the great approaches. Good fortune! Success! Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
