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 first line:
Buttocks distressed by tree stumps.
Entering a dark ravine.
For three harvests, meeting no one.
The third line:
Distressed by rock, seized in thistles.
Entering into his palace, not seeing his wife.
Misfortune.
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.
