I Ching: Hexagram 6 - The Lines, Part 6

Nine at the top means:
Even if by chance a leather belt is bestowed on one,'
By the end of a morning
It will have been snatched away three times.


Here we have someone who has carried a conflict to the bitter end and has triumphed. He is granted a decoration, but his happiness does not last. He is attacked again and again, and the result is conflict without end.
