47 Distress

The Statement of the first hexagram

Distress. Continue.
For a pure and great person: fortune.
No fault. What is said is not trusted.

The changing lines

The fifth line:
Hacking off noses, hacking off feet. Distressed
by vermillion sashes.
Then, slowly, there is talk.
Gain by making offerings and sacrifices.
The sixth line:
Distressed by vines and creepers.
With anxious speech and acts, one repents.
Repent and go forward to fortune.

64 Not Yet Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Not yet across. Continue.

The young fox, nearly across,

soaks its tail.

No place is gainful.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

A lake without water:
distress. The noble one
devotes her life
to fulfill her will.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire on top of water:
not yet across. The wise
one distinguishes things
carefully, and puts them
in their places.
