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.
The fourth line:
The well lined with brick.

No fault.
The fifth line:
The well of a clear cold spring: drink.
The sixth line:
The well collects fully. Do not cover it.

Have confidence: great fortune.

56 Traveler

The Statement of the second hexagram

Traveler. Slight progress.
Be steadfast in travel: 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

Fire on the mountain:
traveler. The noble one is
clear-minded and cautious
in meting out punishment
and yet does not delay trial.
