Young's Literal Translation
Know well the face of thy flock, Set thy heart to the droves,
Proverbs 27:23 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The state of thy flocks - The directions to the end of the chapter refer chiefly to pastoral and agricultural affairs. Do not trust thy flocks to the shepherd merely; number them thyself; look into their condition; see how they are tended; and when, and with what, and in what proportion, they are fed.
