43 Decisiveness

The Statement of the first 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 changing lines

The first line:
Strong in the feet:

Going forward, there will be no triumph

due to mistakes.
The second line:
Alert commands. Night after night

of fighting without relief.
The sixth line:
No signals:

the end will be misfortune.

33 Withdrawal

The Statement of the second hexagram

Withdrawal. Continue.
Small gains in persisting.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

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

The Image of the second hexagram

A mountain under heaven:
withdrawal.
The noble one keeps
distant from vile people,
not with hatred,
but with dignity.
