38 Estrangement

The Statement of the first hexagram

Estrangement.

In small matters: fortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
Remorse vanishes. Do not search:

a lost horse returns by itself.

When seeing the wicked, make no mistakes.
The third line:
Seeing the wagon dragged back, his oxen

taken, his men's hair and noses cut off.

Not a beginning, but an ending.
The fourth line:
Estranged, one meets the main person.

A trustworthy exchange.

Severity is without fault.

Poison brings the great continuing.
Advance across the great river.
Before starting: three days.
After starting: three days.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Fire above, lake below:
estrangement. The noble
one works with others,
but remains an individual.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Wind below the mountain:
poison. The noble one
stirs the people
and nourishes virtue.
