64 Not Yet Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Not yet across. Continue.

The young fox, nearly across,

soaks its tail.

No place is gainful.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire on top of water:
not yet across. The wise
one distinguishes things
carefully, and puts them
in their places.
