7 Armies

The Statement of the first hexagram

Armies must be steadfast.
With a great leader
they will find fortune.
They must remain without fault.

The changing lines

The first line:
Armies must march with rules.
Otherwise, whether gain or loss,
there will be misfortune.
The third line:
The armies might cart corpses:
misfortune.
The fifth line:
There are birds in the field. Catch them!
No fault when the eldest one
commands armies, but if it is a trainee-
carts of corpses and pure misfortune.
The sixth line:
The great prince takes command.
He founds a country
and supports the clans.
He does not employ petty people.

9 Smallness Tames

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smallness tames. Persevere.
Dense clouds, no rain
at my western border.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The earth's center
is filled with water.
The noble one supports
the people and cares for
everyone.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Wind moving high
in heaven: smallness tames.
The noble one acts
with restraint, culture,
and morals.
