Know the state of your flocks, and put your heart into caring for your herds,
for riches don't last forever, and the crown might not be secure for the next generation.
After the hay is harvested, the new crop appears, and the mountain grasses are gathered in,
your sheep will provide wool for clothing, and your goats will be sold for the price of a field.
And you will have enough goats' milk for you, your family, and your servants.
