29 Pit

The Statement of the first hexagram

Repeated pits.
Have confidence.
Tether your heart and continue.
Action brings honor.

The changing lines

The first line:
Pit within a pit.
Entering an underground vault:
misfortune.
The third line:
Drumbeats come: stuck in danger.
Entering the underground vault
will be of no use.
The fourth line:
A bottle of wine, a bamboo basket,
and two earthenware vessels offered simply
through a window. In the end, no fault.

43 Decisiveness

The Statement of the second hexagram

Decisiveness. Proclaim in the royal court.

Trust in the commands. Be stern.

There will be severity.

Announce to your own city.

There is no gain in going to war.

Gain by having a place to go.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Flowing water comes:
repeated pits.
The noble one moves
with constant virtue, and
repeatedly teaches
the critical matters.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Lake rising to heaven:
decisiveness. The noble one
bestows wealth
to those below
and shuns dwelling
on his own virtues.
