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 first line:
Pulling couch grass

uproots more with it by entwined roots.

Snatch it: fortune. Continue.
The second line:
Wrapped in flattery, the vile prosper.

Great people are clogged. Continue.
The sixth line:
Clogging overturned.

First there was clogging.

Later all will be glad.

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

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