《豐 - Feng》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
(The trigrams representing) thunder and lightning combine to form Feng. The superior man, in accordance with this, decides cases of litigation, and apportions punishments with exactness.

2 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
'Though they are both of the same character, there will be no error:' - if the subject of this line seek to overpass that similarity, there will be calamity.

3 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
'Let him cherish his feeling of sincere devotion, that it shall appear being put forth:' - it is by sincerity that the mind is affected.

4 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
'There is an (additional) screen of a large and thick banner:' - great things should not be attempted (in such circumstances). 'He breaks his right arm:' - in the end he will not be fit to be employed.

5 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
'He is surrounded by a screen large and thick:' - the position of the line is inappropriate. 'At midday he sees the constellation of the Bushel:' - there is darkness and no light. 'He meets with the subject of the line, undivided like himself. There will be good fortune:' - action may be taken.

6 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
'The good fortune indicated by the fifth six, (divided),'is the congratulation (that is sure to arise).

7 豐:
Xiang Zhuan:
'He has made his house large:' - he soars (in his pride) to the heavens. 'He looks at his door, which is still, with no one about it:' - he (only) keeps himself withdrawn from all others.
