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 sixth line:
Exclamations, tears, and sniveling.
No fault.

12 Clogging

The Statement of the second hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.
 
 

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

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint
in the face
of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.
