16 Delight

The Statement of the first hexagram

What delight!
Gain by naming allies.
Move armies.

The changing lines

The fifth line:
Firm illness persists,
but there is no death.
The sixth line:
Dark delight succeeds.
Have a change of mind
and there will be no fault.

12 Clogging

The Statement of the second hexagram

Clogging by wicked people.

Nothing to be gained,

even from a steadfast prince.

The great goes, the vile comes.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder explodes,
shaking the earth: delight.
The early kings made music,
glorifying virtue as the
highest offering to God,
and so they were worthy
of their ancestors.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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