51. 震為雷 Chen / The Arousing (Shock, Thunder)
Shock brings success. Shock comes-oh, oh!
Laughing words-ha, ha! The shock terrifies for
a hundred miles, And he does not let fall the
sacrificial spoon and chalice.
Thunder in heaven above:
The image of the Power of the Great. Thus the
superior man does not tread upon paths
That do not accord with established order.
Shock comes-oh, oh!
Then follow laughing words-ha, ha!
Shock comes bringing danger.
A hundred thousand times
You lose your treasures
And must climb the nine hills.
Do not go in pursuit of them.
After seven days you will get them back.
Shock comes and makes one distraught.
If shock spurs to action
One remains free of misfortune.
Shock is mired.
Shock goes hither and thither. Danger.
However, nothing at all is lost.
Yet there are things to be done.
Shock brings ruin and terrified gazing around.
Going ahead brings misfortune.
If it has not yet touched one's own body
But has reached one's neighbor first,
There is no blame.
One's comrades have something to talk about.
