Classical Interpretation

Dispersion (59) signifies separation.

The image

The wind sweeps over the water: the image of dispersion. Thus the kings of ancient times sacrificed to the Lord and built temples.

The judgement

Dispersion. Success. The king approaches his temple. It furthers to cross the great water. Perseverance furthers. Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
