(A minister) should stand (with his back) curved in the manner of a sounding-stone, and his girdle-pendants hanging down.
Where his lord has his pendants hanging at his side,
his should be hanging down in front;
where his lord has them hanging in front,
his should descend to the ground.
When one is holding any symbol of jade (to present it),
if it be on a mat, he leaves it so exposed;
if there be no mat, he covers it with (the sleeve of) his outer robe.
