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 second line:
The well bottom gushes carp.

A broken jug leaks.

39 Hindered

The Statement of the second hexagram

Gain in the west and south.

No gain in the east and north.

Gain by seeing the great person.

Pure fortune.
 
 

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

Water on top of the
mountain: hindered.
The noble one
turns inward
to cultivate virtue.
