3 Sprouting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Sprouting begins everywhere,
abundant and pure.
No need to go far:
gain by naming allies.

The changing lines

The first line:
A boulder and a willow.
It is gainful to dwell staunchly here.
Gain by naming allies.
The second line:
How like the difficulty of sprouting!
Rushing like a team of horses: it is not a raider
who woos, yet the chaste girl refuses.
She waits ten years for betrothal.
The fourth line:
Riding a team of horses
to seek marriage. Fortunate.
Nothing but gain.
The sixth line:
Riding a team of horses:
Sobbing and weeping blood.

6 Dispute

The Statement of the second hexagram

Dispute: keep confident

even if blocked and alarmed.

In the middle, good fortune,

but in the end, misfortune.

Gain by seeing a great person.

Do not advance across the great river.

The Image of the first hexagram

Clouds and thunder: sprouting. The noble one
considers the principles.

The Image of the second hexagram

Heaven and water clash:
dispute. The noble one
devises the right beginning
in all matters.
