The Statement of the first hexagram

Adornment. Continue.
Slight gain in having a place to go.

The changing lines

The first line:
Alighting from the carriage
with adorned feet to walk.
The fifth line:
Light adorns hillside gardens:
A betrothal bundle
may be small and meager,
but in the end, fortune.
The sixth line:
Plain adornment
is without fault.

39 Hindered

The Statement of the second hexagram

Gain in the west and south.

No gain in the east and north.

Gain by seeing the great person.

Pure fortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Fire at the foot
of a mountain: adornment.
The noble one thereby
governs with clarity, and
does not dare
to decide lawsuits lightly.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Water on top of the
mountain: hindered.
The noble one
turns inward
to cultivate virtue.
