43 Decisiveness

The Statement of the first hexagram

Decisiveness. Proclaim in the royal court.

Trust in the commands. Be stern.

There will be severity.

Announce to your own city.

There is no gain in going to war.

Gain by having a place to go.

The changing lines

The third line:
Strong in the cheekbones: misfortune.

The noble one is resolute, but walks alone-

soaked by rain, angry,

with no one to blame.

The Statement of the second hexagram

Exchange: progress and steadfast gain.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Lake rising to heaven:
decisiveness. The noble one
bestows wealth
to those below
and shuns dwelling
on his own virtues.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Joined lakes in exchange.
The noble one
investigates and explains
knowledge to friends.
