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 first line:
Pulling couch grass

uproots more with it by entwined roots.

Snatch it: fortune. Continue.
The second line:
Wrapped in flattery, the vile prosper.

Great people are clogged. Continue.
The fifth line:
Clogging ceases. Great people prosper.

It could be lost! It could be lost!

Tie it to the roots of a mulberry tree.

38 Estrangement

The Statement of the second hexagram

Estrangement.

In small matters: fortune.
 
 

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

Fire above, lake below:
estrangement. The noble
one works with others,
but remains an individual.
