8 Joining

The Statement of the first hexagram

Joining brings fortune.
Repeating the divination by yarrow stalks
brings a supreme and lasting omen
without fault.
Those who are not sure
will join the plan.
Those who are late
will meet misfortune.

The changing lines

The sixth line:
Joining without a leader:
misfortune.

20 Beholding

The Statement of the second hexagram

Behold! The hands have been washed,

but the offering has not yet been made.

Be sincere and dignified in appearance.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Water pooled
on the earth: joining.
The early kings founded
the myriad nations,
and kept close ties
with all the leaders.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

The wind moving above
the earth: beholding.
The ancient kings
inspected the provinces
and territories to establish
the right teachings.
