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.

31 Feeling

The Statement of the second hexagram

Feeling. Pervasive

with gainful purity.

Taking a spouse brings 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

Lake on a mountain:
feeling.
The noble one
accepts people openly.
