What delight!
Gain by naming allies.
Move armies.

45 Collecting

The Statement of the second 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 Image of the first hexagram

Thunder explodes,
shaking the earth: delight.
The early kings made music,
glorifying virtue as the
highest offering to God,
and so they were worthy
of their ancestors.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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