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 first line:
The muddy well does not feed.

No birds come to an ancient well.
The third line:
The well is dredged, but no one drinks.

My heart is anguished. Water

could be drawn. If the king understood,

we would instantly receive happiness.
The sixth line:
The well collects fully. Do not cover it.

Have confidence: great fortune.

61 Confidence Within

The Statement of the second hexagram

Confidence within:

Pigs. Fish. Fortune.

Advance across the great river.

Gainful purity.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

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

The Image of the second hexagram

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