51 Thunder

The Statement of the first hexagram

Thunder everywhere.
Thunder comes frighteningly.
People laugh and exclaim.
Thunder terrifies for one hundred miles,
but do not lose the ladle
of sacrificial wine.

The changing lines

The first line:
Thunder brings fright and terror.
Afterward, laughter and talk: ha ha.
Fortune.
The fourth line:
Thunder, followed by mud.
The fifth line:
Thunder approaches and arrives harshly.
What is numerous is not lost.
There is business.

8 Joining

The Statement of the second hexagram

Joining brings fortune.
Repeating the divination by yarrow stalks
brings a supreme and lasting omen
without fault.
Those who are not sure
will join the plan.
Those who are late
will meet misfortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Continuous thunder
on thunder.
The noble one examines
his morals
in fear and dread.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water pooled
on the earth: joining.
The early kings founded
the myriad nations,
and kept close ties
with all the leaders.
