23 Splitting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Splitting; no gain

in having a place to go.

The changing lines

The fourth line:
The bed's surface splits into pieces:

misfortune.
The sixth line:
Great fruits are not eaten.

The noble one gets a sedan chair.

The vile ones splinter their huts.

16 Delight

The Statement of the second hexagram

What delight!
Gain by naming allies.
Move armies.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The mountain resting on
the earth: splitting.
When the high
are generous
to those below,
all dwell in peace.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder explodes,
shaking the earth: delight.
The early kings made music,
glorifying virtue as the
highest offering to God,
and so they were worthy
of their ancestors.
