45 Collecting

The Statement of the first hexagram

The king draws near to the temple:
gain by seeing a great person.
Make an offering with purity,
using great sacrificial beasts. Fortune.
Gain by having a place to go.

The changing lines

The second line:
Led by fortune. No fault.
Trust the gain of the summer sacrifice.
The third line:
Collecting like sighs of regret.
No place is gainful.
Depart without fault. Slight regret.
The fourth line:
Great fortune, no fault.

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

Lake above the earth.
Collecting. The noble one
collects the tools of war
to guard against
unforeseen danger.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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