The original Richard Wilhelm translation for the hexagram line...

Hexagram 32
Hêng - Duration

yin above: Chên / The Arousing, Thunder
yang below: Sun / The Gentle, Wind


Hexagram Thirty-Two/Line Two

Nine in the second place means:
Remorse disappears.

'Samson and Delilah', ca. 1610 - Peter Paul Rubens (1577 - 1640)
London, National Gallery
