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 fourth line:
The well lined with brick.

No fault.

47 Distress

The Statement of the second hexagram

Distress. Continue.
For a pure and great person: fortune.
No fault. What is said is not trusted.
 
 

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

A lake without water:
distress. The noble one
devotes her life
to fulfill her will.
