28 Great Excess

The Statement of the first hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.

The changing lines

The second line:
A withered trunk bursts with fresh vetch.

An old man takes a wife. Nothing but gain.
The fourth line:
An ample beam. Fortunate,

unless there has been stinting.
The sixth line:
Fording, wading, head submerged.

Misfortune, but without fault.

53 Gradually

The Statement of the second hexagram

A woman marries: fortune.
Gainful purity.
 
 

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

Wood on the mountain:
gradually.
The noble one dwells
in high moral character
and reforms
popular customs.
