47 Distress

The Statement of the first hexagram

Distress. Continue.
For a pure and great person: fortune.
No fault. What is said is not trusted.

The changing lines

The fourth line:
Progress is gradual.
Distressed in a metal car.
Regret will end.
The fifth line:
Hacking off noses, hacking off feet. Distressed
by vermillion sashes.
Then, slowly, there is talk.
Gain by making offerings and sacrifices.
The sixth line:
Distressed by vines and creepers.
With anxious speech and acts, one repents.
Repent and go forward to fortune.

4 Youth

The Statement of the second hexagram

A youth must be steadfast.

I do not seek the naive youth.

The naive youth seeks me.

At the first divination, I explain,

but after three times, it is irritating.

Annoyed, I explain no further.

Nevertheless, a gainful omen.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

A lake without water:
distress. The noble one
devotes her life
to fulfill her will.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

A spring gushes
below a mountain:
the naive youth.
The noble one nourishes virtue
with determination.
