12 Clogging

The Statement of the first hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.

The changing lines

The first line:
Pulling couch grass

uproots more with it by entwined roots.

Snatch it: fortune. Continue.
The fourth line:
Commands without fault,

fields divided: blessings.

42 Increase

The Statement of the second hexagram

Increase. Gain by having a place to go.

Advance across the great river.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Heaven and earth
separate: clogging.
The noble one acts
with self-restraint
in the face
of punishing hardship,
and avoids glory or riches.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Wind and thunder:
increase. The noble one
sees perfection
and shifts to fit its pattern,
and corrects his own faults.
