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.

Repeated pits.
Have confidence.
Tether your heart and continue.
Action brings honor.
 
 

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

Flowing water comes:
repeated pits.
The noble one moves
with constant virtue, and
repeatedly teaches
the critical matters.
