28 Great Excess

The Statement of the first hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.

The changing lines

The second line:
A withered trunk bursts with fresh vetch.

An old man takes a wife. Nothing but gain.
The fourth line:
An ample beam. Fortunate,

unless there has been stinting.
The fifth line:
Withered wood blooms with flowers.

An old woman takes a husband.

Neither fault nor praise.

15 Humility

The Statement of the second hexagram

Humility imbues.

The noble one gets completion.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Mountains in the middle
of the earth: humility.
The wise person
takes from the ample
to add to the meager,
weighing and balancing
fairly.
