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.
The sixth line:
The well collects fully. Do not cover it.

Have confidence: great fortune.

59 Spreading

The Statement of the second hexagram

Spreading.

The king draws near to the temple.

Advance across the great river.

Gainful purity.
 
 

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

Wind moving above water:
spreading.
The ancient kings made
sacrificial offerings to God
and established temples.
