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 second line:
Alert commands. Night after night

of fighting without relief.
The fourth line:
Buttocks without skin: one walks uneasily.

Follow like a sheep and regrets vanish.

Instead, words are heard but not believed.
The sixth line:
No signals:

the end will be misfortune.

37 Family

The Statement of the second hexagram

A family benefits
from the women's purity.
 
 

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

Wind emerges from fire:
family.
The noble one has
substance in speech and
constancy in action.
