18 rWhoever tends a fig tree will eat its fruit,
and he who sguards his master will be honored.
23 yKnow well the condition of your flocks,
and ygive attention to your herds,
24 for zriches do not last forever;
and does a crown endure to all generations?
25 aWhen the grass is gone and the new growth appears
and the vegetation of the mountains is gathered,
26 bthe lambs will provide your clothing,
and the goats the price of a field.
27 bThere will be enough goats' milk for your food,
for the food of your household
and maintenance for your girls.
