18 jWhoever 4keeps the fig tree will eat its fruit;

So he who waits on his master will be honored.

19 As in water face reflects face,

So a man’s heart reveals the man.

20 kHell 5and 6Destruction are never full;

So lthe eyes of man are never satisfied.

21 mThe refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold,

And a man is valued by what others say of him.

22 nThough you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain,

Yet his foolishness will not depart from him.

23 Be diligent to know the state of your oflocks,

And attend to your herds;

24 For riches are not forever,

Nor does a crown endure to all generations.

25 pWhen the hay is removed, and the tender grass shows itself,

And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in,

26 The lambs will provide your clothing,

And the goats the price of a field;

27 You shall have enough goats’ milk for your food,

For the food of your household,

And the nourishment of your maidservants.
