I. The Oracle
A. Hexagram 22 is Bi or Adorning. Further variations include Grace and Luxuriance. The lower trigram is Li: radiance or fire, and the upper trigram is Gen: bound or mountain.
B. The Judgment1. Grace has success.
2. In small matters
It is favorable to undertake something.
C. The Image1. Fire at the foot of the mountain:
The image of Grace.
2. Thus the superior man proceeds
When clearing up current affairs.
But he dares not decide controversial issues in this way.
