23 Splitting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Splitting; no gain

in having a place to go.

The changing lines

The first line:
The bed's feet split:

If you disregard the signs: misfortune.
The fourth line:
The bed's surface splits into pieces:

misfortune.
The fifth line:
The court ladies and concubines

are like fish tethered to a line:

nothing but gain.
The sixth line:
Great fruits are not eaten.

The noble one gets a sedan chair.

The vile ones splinter their huts.

The Statement of the second hexagram

Following
what is great, smooth,
gainful, and pure.
No fault.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The mountain resting on
the earth: splitting.
When the high
are generous
to those below,
all dwell in peace.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder over the middle
of the lake: following.
The noble one at sunset
goes into a house to rest.
