12 Clogging

The Statement of the first hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.

The changing lines

The first line:
Pulling couch grass

uproots more with it by entwined roots.

Snatch it: fortune. Continue.
The second line:
Wrapped in flattery, the vile prosper.

Great people are clogged. Continue.
The fifth line:
Clogging ceases. Great people prosper.

It could be lost! It could be lost!

Tie it to the roots of a mulberry tree.
The sixth line:
Clogging overturned.

First there was clogging.

Later all will be glad.

54 Marrying Sister

The Statement of the second hexagram

Advance: misfortune.
No place will bring gain.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

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

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder over lake:
marrying sister.
The noble one pursues
far-reaching goals
while keeping aware
of possible ruin.
