16 Delight

The Statement of the first hexagram

What delight!
Gain by naming allies.
Move armies.

The changing lines

The first line:
Crowing delight.
Misfortune.
The fifth line:
Firm illness persists,
but there is no death.
The sixth line:
Dark delight succeeds.
Have a change of mind
and there will be no fault.

25 Innocence

The Statement of the second hexagram

Innocence: from the first, all must be

pervasive, gainful, and pure.

Those without such truth suffer calamity

and do not gain no matter where they 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

Thunder moves
under heaven: all the world
is innocent. The ancient
kings paid close attention
to the time
in nourishing
the myriad things.
