51 Thunder

The Statement of the first hexagram

Thunder everywhere.
Thunder comes frighteningly.
People laugh and exclaim.
Thunder terrifies for one hundred miles,
but do not lose the ladle
of sacrificial wine.

The changing lines

The third line:
Thunder: awake, awake!
Shaking without injury.
The fifth line:
Thunder approaches and arrives harshly.
What is numerous is not lost.
There is business.

49 Reform

The Statement of the second hexagram

Reform: on one's own day,

confidence is won-

making, pervasive, gainful, and pure.

Regrets vanish.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Continuous thunder
on thunder.
The noble one examines
his morals
in fear and dread.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire in the middle of the
lake: reform. The noble one
orders the calendar
by the seasons.
