《既濟 - Ji Ji》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
(The trigram representing) fire and that for water above it form Ji Ji. The superior man, in accordance with this, thinks of evil (that may come), and beforehand guards against it.

2 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'He drags back his wheel:' - as we may rightly judge, there will be no mistake.

3 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'In seven days she will find it:' - for the course pursued is that indicated by the central position (of the line).

4 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'He was three years in subduing it:' - enough to make him weary.

5 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'He is on his guard all the day:' - he is in doubt about something.

6 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'The slaughtering of an ox by the neighbour in the east is not equal to (the small sacrifice of) the neighbour in the west:' - because the time (in the latter case is more important and fit). 'His sincerity receives the blessing:' - good fortune comes on a great scale.

7 既濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'His head is immersed; the position is perilous:' - how could such a state continue long?
