23 Splitting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Splitting; no gain

in having a place to go.

The changing lines

The third line:
This splitting is without fault.
The fourth line:
The bed's surface splits into pieces:

misfortune.
The fifth line:
The court ladies and concubines

are like fish tethered to a line:

nothing but gain.

33 Withdrawal

The Statement of the second hexagram

Withdrawal. Continue.
Small gains in persisting.
 
 

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

A mountain under heaven:
withdrawal.
The noble one keeps
distant from vile people,
not with hatred,
but with dignity.
