9 Smallness Tames

The Statement of the first hexagram

Smallness tames. Persevere.
Dense clouds, no rain
at my western border.

The changing lines

The first line:
Return to your own Way.
How can this be wrong?
The fourth line:
Have confidence. Bloodletting is past,
alarm has gone. No fault.
The sixth line:
Rain is done, all is in place. Respect and virtue
are full. Yet a woman's chastity is imperiled.
When the moon is nearly full,
the prince attacks: misfortune.

28 Great Excess

The Statement of the second hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Wind moving high
in heaven: smallness tames.
The noble one acts
with restraint, culture,
and morals.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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