12 Clogging

The Statement of the first hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.

The changing lines

The second line:
Wrapped in flattery, the vile prosper.

Great people are clogged. Continue.
The third line:
Wrapped in shame.
The fourth line:
Commands without fault,

fields divided: blessings.
The fifth line:
Clogging ceases. Great people prosper.

It could be lost! It could be lost!

Tie it to the roots of a mulberry tree.

Advance across the great river.

After starting: three days.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint

of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.

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