《未濟 - Wei Ji》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
(The trigram representing) water and that for fire above it form Wei Ji. The superior man, in accordance with this, carefully discriminates among (the qualities of) things, and the (different) positions they (naturally) occupy.

2 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'His tail gets immersed:' - this is the very height of ignorance.

3 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'The second NINE, (undivided), shows good fortune arising from being firm and correct:' - it is in the central place, and the action of its subject thereby becomes correct.

4 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'(The state of things is) not yet remedied. Advancing will lead to evil:' - the place (of the line) is not that appropriate for it.

5 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
(By firm correctness there is good fortune, and cause for repentance disappears:' - the aim (of the subject of the line) is carried into effect.

6 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'(We see) the brightness of a superior man: - 'the diffusion of that brightness tends to good fortune.

7 未濟:
Xiang Zhuan:
'He drinks and gets his head immersed:' - he does not know how to submit to the (proper) regulations.
