59 Spreading

The Statement of the first hexagram

Spreading.

The king draws near to the temple.

Advance across the great river.

Gainful purity.

The changing lines

The second line:
Spreading and going directly toward

his platform. Regrets vanish.
The sixth line:
Spreading his blood.

Go far away. No fault.

8 Joining

The Statement of the second hexagram

Joining brings fortune.
Repeating the divination by yarrow stalks
brings a supreme and lasting omen
without fault.
Those who are not sure
will join the plan.
Those who are late
will meet misfortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Wind moving above water:
spreading.
The ancient kings made
sacrificial offerings to God
and established temples.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water pooled
on the earth: joining.
The early kings founded
the myriad nations,
and kept close ties
with all the leaders.
