62 Small Crossing

The Statement of the first hexagram

Small crossing. Continue for gainful purity.

Small matters can be done,

but not large matters.

Flying birds leave their sound:

it is unsuitable to go high-

the suitable is below.

Great fortune.

The changing lines

The second line:
Crossing to one's ancestors,

meeting one's dead mother.

Not reaching as far as one's king:

meeting his minister. No fault.
The third line:
Do not cross. Be on guard.

Attend to this, or there may be killing.

Misfortune.
The sixth line:
Not meeting is excessive.

Flying birds separate: misfortune.

This is called calamity and blundering.

64 Not Yet Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Not yet across. Continue.

The young fox, nearly across,

soaks its tail.

No place is gainful.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder above the
mountain: small crossing.
The noble one acts with
more than enough
reverence, destroys
excessive grief, and uses
more than enough
economy.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire on top of water:
not yet across. The wise
one distinguishes things
carefully, and puts them
in their places.
