20 Beholding

The Statement of the first hexagram

Behold! The hands have been washed,

but the offering has not yet been made.

Be sincere and dignified in appearance.

The changing lines

The first line:
Childish beholding is not wrong

for a common person, but it is wrong

for a superior person.
The second line:
Spying and peeping:

far better to have a woman's purity.
The sixth line:
In beholding others' lives

the wise person allows no faults.

60 Regulation

The Statement of the second hexagram

Regulation. Be pervasive.
One cannot be morally pure
through suffering and trial.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The wind moving above
the earth: beholding.
The ancient kings
inspected the provinces
and territories to establish
the right teachings.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water above the lake:
regulation. The noble one
regulates number and
measure and discusses
virtuous conduct.
