40. 雷水解 Hsieh / Deliverance
Deliverance. The southwest furthers.
If there is no longer anything where one has to
go, Return brings good fortune.
If there is still something where one has to go,
Hastening brings good fortune.
Thunder and rain set in:
The image of Deliverance.
Thus the superior man pardons mistakes
And forgives misdeeds.
One kills three foxes in the field
And receives a yellow arrow.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
If a man carries a burden on his back
And nonetheless rides in a carriage,
He thereby encourages robbers to draw near.
Perseverance leads to humiliation.
Deliver yourself from your great toe.
Then the companion comes,
And him you can trust.
If only the superior man can deliver himself,
It brings good fortune. Thus he proves to
inferior men that he is in earnest.
The prince shoots at a hawk on a high wall.
He kills it. Everything serves to further.
