2 Earth

The Statement of the first hexagram

Earth: maker, everywhere.
Gain from a mare's purity.
The noble one wanting to go far
is first confused, but later finds guidance.
Gain friends in the west and south,
Lose friends in the east and north.
Peace: this is a sign of fortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
Treading on frost-
solid ice will soon arrive.
The second line:
Straight, square, great-
this leads to spontaneous
and undoubted gain.
The third line:
Hide your talents, but stay steadfast
if you would be of royal service.
The fifth line:
Yellow garments.
Great fortune.
The sixth line:
Dragons fight in the wild:
their blood is dark and yellow.

9 Smallness Tames

The Statement of the second hexagram

Smallness tames. Persevere.
Dense clouds, no rain
at my western border.

The Image of the first hexagram

Ground as the power
of earth:
the noble one generously
supports all things.

The Image of the second hexagram

Wind moving high
in heaven: smallness tames.
The noble one acts
with restraint, culture,
and morals.
