61 Confidence Within

The Statement of the first hexagram

Confidence within:

Pigs. Fish. Fortune.

Advance across the great river.

Gainful purity.

The changing lines

The first line:
Expect fortune

while others are without ease.
The third line:
Encountering an enemy:

Some drum, some halt.

Some sob, some sing.
The sixth line:
The sound of a white horse

rising to heaven: pure misfortune.

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

Wind above the lake:
inner truth.
The noble one
discusses the law
and grants reprieve
from execution.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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