Classical Interpretation

Grace (22) signifies undyed.

The image

Low at the mountain is fire: the image of grace. Thus the superior man proceeds with clarifying current affairs, but then does not dare to decide controversial issues.

The judgement

Grace has success. In small matters it furthers to do something. Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
