50. 火風鼎 Ting / The Caldron
The Caldron. Supreme good fortune.
Fire over wood:
The image of the Caldron.
Thus the superior man consolidates his fate
By making his position correct.
A Ting with legs upturned.
Furthers removal of stagnating stuff.
One takes a concubine for the sake of her son.
There is food in the Ting.
My comrades are envious,
But they cannot harm me. Good fortune.
The handle of the Ting is altered.
One is impeded in his way of life.
The fat of the pheasant is not eaten.
Once rain falls, remorse is spent.
Good fortune comes in the end.
The legs of the Ting are broken.
The prince's meal is spilled
And his person is soiled. Misfortune.
The Ting has yellow handles, golden carrying
rings. Perseverance furthers.
The Ting has rings of jade.
Great good fortune.
Nothing that would not act to further.
