The Statement of the first hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.

A withered trunk bursts with fresh vetch.

An old man takes a wife. Nothing but gain.

39 Hindered

The Statement of the second hexagram

Gain in the west and south.

No gain in the east and north.

Gain by seeing the great person.

Pure fortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water on top of the
mountain: hindered.
The noble one
turns inward
to cultivate virtue.
