    and there be no herd in the stalls,

F Fig Plant – small

F Fruit Plant – small

P Olive Plant – small

F Field Area – big

F Flock Animal – big

H Herd Animal – big

To memorise the above – simply note F F P F F H pattern . F could stand for FARMING. The PH could be related to alkalinity of the soil

yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
    I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
19 God, the Lord, is my strength;
    he makes my feet like the deer’s;
    he makes me tread on my high places.

I will x 2 ( make a determined gesture with hands )

Note sequence LORD, GOD, GOD, LORD

He makes x2 Feet tread
