34 Great Vigor

The Statement of the first hexagram

Great vigor, gainful purity.

The changing lines

The second line:
Persist.

Fortune.
The third line:
The inferior exert strength, the superior

exert not. Persist in harsh times.

A ram butts a hedge, entangling his horns.
The fifth line:
The ram is lost easily.

No remorse.
The sixth line:
A ram butts the hedge and cannot pull out

or escape. No place is gainful.

First difficulty, then fortune.

25 Innocence

The Statement of the second hexagram

Innocence: from the first, all must be

pervasive, gainful, and pure.

Those without such truth suffer calamity

and do not gain no matter where they go.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder in heaven above:
great vigor. The noble one
is never without reverence
and does not fail
in conduct.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder moves
under heaven: all the world
is innocent. The ancient
kings paid close attention
to the time
in nourishing
the myriad things.
