23 Splitting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Splitting; no gain

in having a place to go.

The changing lines

The first line:
The bed's feet split:

If you disregard the signs: misfortune.
The second line:
The bed's side splits apart:

If you disregard the signs: misfortune.
The third line:
This splitting is without fault.
The fifth line:
The court ladies and concubines

are like fish tethered to a line:

nothing but gain.

9 Smallness Tames

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smallness tames. Persevere.
Dense clouds, no rain
at my western border.
 
 

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

Wind moving high
in heaven: smallness tames.
The noble one acts
with restraint, culture,
and morals.
