5 Waiting

The Statement of the first hexagram

Waiting. Stay confident:

there is light everywhere.

Pure fortune.

Advance across the great river.

The changing lines

The first line:
Waiting in the countryside.

Gain by being steadfast.

Be without 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

Clouds rising to heaven:
waiting. The noble one
drinks, eats,
and feasts with joy.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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