47 Distress

The Statement of the first hexagram

Distress. Continue.
For a pure and great person: fortune.
No fault. What is said is not trusted.

The changing lines

The second line:
Distressed with wine and food.
Vermilion sashes come from all directions.
Gain by making offerings and worshipping.
Going: misfortune. No fault.
The fourth line:
Progress is gradual.
Distressed in a metal car.
Regret will end.
The fifth line:
Hacking off noses, hacking off feet. Distressed
by vermillion sashes.
Then, slowly, there is talk.
Gain by making offerings and sacrifices.

2 Earth

The Statement of the second hexagram

Earth: maker, everywhere.
Gain from a mare's purity.
The noble one wanting to go far
is first confused, but later finds guidance.
Gain friends in the west and south,
Lose friends in the east and north.
Peace: this is a sign of fortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

A lake without water:
distress. The noble one
devotes her life
to fulfill her will.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Ground as the power
of earth:
the noble one generously
supports all things.
