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 second line:
The well bottom gushes carp.

A broken jug leaks.

63 Already Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Already across. Continue.

Small gain: be steadfast.

In the beginning, fortune.

At the end, disorder.
 
 

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 fire:
already across. The wise
one prepares for calamity
by forethought.
