51 Thunder

The Statement of the first hexagram

Thunder everywhere.
Thunder comes frighteningly.
People laugh and exclaim.
Thunder terrifies for one hundred miles,
but do not lose the ladle
of sacrificial wine.

The changing lines

The second line:
Thunder comes harshly.
Countless treasures lost.
Climb up nine mounds. Do not pursue.
In seven days: recovery.
The third line:
Thunder: awake, awake!
Shaking without injury.
The fourth line:
Thunder, followed by mud.
The fifth line:
Thunder approaches and arrives harshly.
What is numerous is not lost.
There is business.

5 Waiting

The Statement of the second hexagram

Waiting. Stay confident:

there is light everywhere.

Pure fortune.

Advance across the great river.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Continuous thunder
on thunder.
The noble one examines
his morals
in fear and dread.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Clouds rising to heaven:
waiting. The noble one
drinks, eats,
and feasts with joy.
