6 Dispute

The Statement of the first hexagram

Dispute: keep confident

even if blocked and alarmed.

In the middle, good fortune,

but in the end, misfortune.

Gain by seeing a great person.

Do not advance across the great river.

The changing lines

The first line:
Do not prolong this case.

The petty control all the talk.

In the end: fortune.
The second line:
Unable to win the dispute. Return,

and so flee his realm

of three hundred households.

No blunders.
The fourth line:
Unable to win the dispute. Go back now,

make your decisions.

Change your mind

and there will be peace.
The sixth line:
One may be awarded a belt of high rank,

but by morning's end,

it will have been stripped away three times.

3 Sprouting

The Statement of the second hexagram

Sprouting begins everywhere,
abundant and pure.
No need to go far:
gain by naming allies.

The Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and water clash:
dispute. The noble one
devises the right beginning
in all matters.

The Image of the second hexagram

Clouds and thunder: sprouting. The noble one
considers the principles.
