48 Well

The Statement of the first 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 changing lines

The second line:
The well bottom gushes carp.

A broken jug leaks.
The third line:
The well is dredged, but no one drinks.

My heart is anguished. Water

could be drawn. If the king understood,

we would instantly receive happiness.
The sixth line:
The well collects fully. Do not cover it.

Have confidence: great fortune.

20 Beholding

The Statement of the second hexagram

Behold! The hands have been washed,

but the offering has not yet been made.

Be sincere and dignified in appearance.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

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

The Image of the second hexagram

The wind moving above
the earth: beholding.
The ancient kings
inspected the provinces
and territories to establish
the right teachings.
