19 Arrival

The Statement of the first hexagram

The arrival of the maker: everywhere,
giving and pure.
When the eighth moon comes,
there will be misfortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
All arrival:
pure gain.
The third line:
Luscious arrival,
but no place brings gain.
Once grieving passes, there is no fault.
The fifth line:
Knowledge arrives.
The noble one is proper.
Fortune.

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

Earth by the lake: arrival.
The noble one
is inexhaustible
in teaching,
and boundlessly protects
the people.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

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