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 first line:
A trust that cannot reach conclusion:
there is confusion, there is collecting amid commands.
One grasps for smiling results-no help.
Depart without fault.
The second line:
Led by fortune. No fault.
Trust the gain of the summer sacrifice.
The sixth line:
Exclamations, tears, and sniveling.
No fault.

10 Walking

The Statement of the second hexagram

Walking on a tiger's tail:

it does not bite.

Continue.
 
 

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 above, lake below:
walking. The noble one
distinguishes high and low
to fix the people's purpose.
