24 Returning

The Statement of the second hexagram

Returning. Continue.
In coming and going,
there is neither sickness nor distress.
Companions come without fault.
Returning is its Tao.
In seven days, returning comes.
Gain by having a place to go.
 
 

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

Thunder in the center of
the earth: returning.
The ancient kings
closed the borders
during the solstices.
Traveling merchants
did not journey. Sovereigns
did not tour the provinces.
