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 first line:
Have confidence. Joining is without fault.
Be as full of trust as an overflowing pot.
At last, another will come. Fortune.
The fourth line:
Joining with those outside.
Pure fortune.
The fifth line:
Glorious joining. The king uses three beaters
to flush the birds before him,
but citizens need no such coercion. Fortune.
The sixth line:
Joining without a leader:
misfortune.

21 Biting

The Statement of the second hexagram

Biting. Penetrate.

Gain by prosecuting.
 
 

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

Thunder and lightning:
biting. The ancient kings
defined penalties and
declared the laws.
