The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.

An ample beam. Fortunate,

unless there has been stinting.

48 Well

The Statement of the second hexagram

Well. A city may change,

but the well does not.

It does not lose, it does not gain.

In spite of all who come and go from a well,

it remains a well.

But if the rope cannot reach,

or if the well's vase is upended:_

misfortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Wood above water: well.
The noble one encourages
the people and lends them
assistance.
