59 Spreading

The Statement of the first hexagram

Spreading.

The king draws near to the temple.

Advance across the great river.

Gainful purity.

The first line:
By the saving strength of a horse.

Fortune.
The third line:
Spreading his twisting body.

No regrets.
The fifth line:
Spreading sweat: his great command.

Expanding royal dwellings. No fault.

26 Great Restraint

The Statement of the second hexagram

Gain by being upright.
Not eating at home brings fortune.
Advance across the great river.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Wind moving above water:
spreading.
The ancient kings made
sacrificial offerings to God
and established temples.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Heaven in the center of a
mountain: great restraint.
The noble one
frequently studies
the words and prophesies
of the past, and thereby
nourishes virtue.
