Hexagram

27. I - Corners of the Mouth (Providing Nourishment)

Kên Keeping still, Mountain
Chên The arousing, Thunder

The Judgement

THE CORNERS OF THE MOUTH.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Pay heed to the providing of nourishment
And to what a man seeks
To fill his own mouth with.

The Image

At the foot of the mountain, thunder:
The image of PROVIDING NOURISHMENT.
Thus the superior man is careful of his words
And temperate in eating and drinking.
