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 fifth line:
The well of a clear cold spring: drink.
The sixth line:
The well collects fully. Do not cover it.

Have confidence: great fortune.

Wind below the mountain:
poison. The noble one
stirs the people
and nourishes virtue.
