Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar with a pestle among groats, yet will not his foolishness depart from him.
Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds;
For riches are not for ever; and doth the crown endure unto all generations?
When the hay is mown, and the tender grass showeth itself, and the herbs of the mountains are gathered in;
The lambs will be for thy clothing, and the goats the price for a field.
And there will be goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household; and maintenance for thy maidens.
