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 third line:
Wrapped in shame.
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.
The sixth line:
Clogging overturned.

First there was clogging.

Later all will be glad.

62 Small Crossing

The Statement of the second hexagram

Small crossing. Continue for gainful purity.

Small matters can be done,

but not large matters.

Flying birds leave their sound:

it is unsuitable to go high-

the suitable is below.

Great fortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint
in the face
of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder above the
mountain: small crossing.
The noble one acts with
more than enough
reverence, destroys
excessive grief, and uses
more than enough
economy.
