23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds,
24 for riches are not for ever; and doth the crown endure to every generation?
25 The hay appeareth, and the tender grass showeth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered;
26 the lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats pay the price of the field;
27 and thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food for thy household, and for the maintenance of thy maidens.
