40 Releasing

The Statement of the first hexagram

Gain in the west and south.
No cause to move forward-
then comes return, and fortune.
To have a place to go: dawn fortune.

The changing lines

The fifth line:
The superior one rules by releasing. Fortune.
One has the confidence
of the common people.
The sixth line:
The duke uses this chance to shoot a hawk
from the top of the ramparts.
Nothing but gain in capturing.

6 Dispute

The Statement of the second hexagram

Dispute: keep confident

even if blocked and alarmed.

In the middle, good fortune,

but in the end, misfortune.

Gain by seeing a great person.

Do not advance across the great river.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder and rain act:
releasing.
The noble one
pardons errors
and forgives offenses.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Heaven and water clash:
dispute. The noble one
devises the right beginning
in all matters.
