24 Returning

The Statement of the first hexagram

Returning. Continue.
In coming and going,
there is neither sickness nor distress.
Companions come without fault.
Returning is its Tao.
In seven days, returning comes.
Gain by having a place to go.

The changing lines

The first line:
Returning from a short distance
is not regrettable. Great fortune.
The second line:
Resting, then returning:
fortunate.

7 Armies

The Statement of the second hexagram

Armies must be steadfast.
With a great leader
they will find fortune.
They must remain without fault.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder in the center of
the earth: returning.
The ancient kings
closed the borders
during the solstices.
Traveling merchants
did not journey. Sovereigns
did not tour the provinces.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

The earth's center
is filled with water.
The noble one supports
the people and cares for
everyone.
