47 Distress

The Statement of the first hexagram

Distress. Continue.
For a pure and great person: fortune.
No fault. What is said is not trusted.

The changing lines

The second line:
Distressed with wine and food.
Vermilion sashes come from all directions.
Gain by making offerings and worshipping.
Going: misfortune. No fault.
The sixth line:
Distressed by vines and creepers.
With anxious speech and acts, one repents.
Repent and go forward to fortune.

12 Clogging

The Statement of the second hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

A lake without water:
distress. The noble one
devotes her life
to fulfill her will.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint
in the face
of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.
