12 Clogging

The Statement of the first hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.

The changing lines

The second line:
Wrapped in flattery, the vile prosper.

Great people are clogged. Continue.
The third line:
Wrapped in shame.
The sixth line:
Clogging overturned.

First there was clogging.

Later all will be glad.

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

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

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.
