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 third line:
Strong in the cheekbones: misfortune.

The noble one is resolute, but walks alone-

soaked by rain, angry,

with no one to blame.
The fourth line:
Buttocks without skin: one walks uneasily.

Follow like a sheep and regrets vanish.

Instead, words are heard but not believed.
The fifth line:
The amaranth mound decisively cleared:

the middle way is without fault.

19 Arrival

The Statement of the second hexagram

The arrival of the maker: everywhere,
giving and pure.
When the eighth moon comes,
there will be misfortune.
 
 

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

Earth by the lake: arrival.
The noble one
is inexhaustible
in teaching,
and boundlessly protects
the people.
