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 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 fifth line:
The well of a clear cold spring: drink.

The Image of the second hexagram

The earth's center
is filled with water.

the people and cares for
everyone.
