21 Biting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Biting. Penetrate.

Gain by prosecuting.

The changing lines

The first line:
Feet in fetters, toes cut off:

no fault.
The fifth line:
Biting dried meat, winning yellow gold.

Be upright in harsh times

and be without fault.

12 Clogging

The Statement of the second hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder and lightning:
biting. The ancient kings
defined penalties and
declared the laws.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint
in the face
of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.
