49 Reform

The Statement of the first hexagram

Reform: on one's own day,

confidence is won-

making, pervasive, gainful, and pure.

Regrets vanish.

The changing lines

The first line:
Bound using yellow ox hide.
The third line:
Going is unfortunate. Pure harshness.

Reform is declared three times

before there is confidence.
The fourth line:
Regrets vanish. Have confidence,

alter the commands. Fortune.

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

Fire in the middle of the
lake: reform. The noble one
orders the calendar
by the seasons.
 
 

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.
