45 Collecting

The Statement of the first hexagram

The king draws near to the temple:
gain by seeing a great person.
Make an offering with purity,
using great sacrificial beasts. Fortune.
Gain by having a place to go.

The changing lines

The third line:
Collecting like sighs of regret.
No place is gainful.
Depart without fault. Slight regret.
The fifth line:
Collecting brings position. No fault
that there is no trust.
Great everlasting constancy dispels regret.

62 Small Crossing

The Statement of the second hexagram

Small crossing. Continue for gainful purity.

Small matters can be done,

but not large matters.

Flying birds leave their sound:

it is unsuitable to go high-

the suitable is below.

Great fortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Lake above the earth.
Collecting. The noble one
collects the tools of war
to guard against
unforeseen danger.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder above the
mountain: small crossing.
The noble one acts with
more than enough
reverence, destroys
excessive grief, and uses
more than enough
economy.
