The Proverbs

Chapter 27

1

Boast101 not thyself of to morrow; 4279 for thou knowest4 not what a day may bring forth.4

2

Let another man5 praise17 thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

3

A stone [is] heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath [is] heavier than them both.

4

Wrath [is] cruel, and anger [is] outrageous; but who [is] able to stand4 before envy?

5

Open30 rebuke [is] better than secret30 love.

6

Faithful12 [are] the wounds of a friend;6 but the kisses of an enemy6 [are] deceitful.12

7

The full soul loatheth4 an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

8

As a bird that wandereth6 from her nest, so [is] a man that wandereth6 from his place.

9

Ointment and perfume rejoice17 the heart: so [doth] the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

10

Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake4 not; neither go4 into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: [for] better [is] a neighbour [that is] near than a brother far off.

11

My son, be wise,3 and make my heart glad,16 that I may answer55 1697 him that reproacheth6 me.

12

A prudent [man] foreseeth1 the evil, [and] hideth8 himself; [but] the simple pass on,1 [and] are punished.8

13

Take3 his garment that is surety1 for a stranger,5 and take a pledge3 of him for a strange woman.

14

He that blesseth18 his friend with a loud voice, rising early53 in the morning, it shall be counted11 a curse to him.

15

A continual6 dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious 4066 woman are alike.13

16

Whosoever hideth6 her hideth1 the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, [which] bewrayeth4 [itself].

17

Iron sharpeneth4 iron; so a man sharpeneth55 the countenance of his friend.

18

Whoso keepeth6 the fig tree shall eat4 the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth6 on his master shall be honoured.29

19

As in water face [answereth] to face, so the heart of man to man.

20

Hell and destruction 10 are never full;4 so the eyes of man are never satisfied.4

21

[As] the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so [is] a man to his praise.

22

Though thou shouldest bray4 a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, [yet] will not his foolishness depart4 from him.

23

Be thou diligent4 to know2 the state of thy flocks, [and] look3 well to thy herds.

24

For riches [are] not for ever: and doth the crown [endure] to every generation?

25

The hay appeareth,1 and the tender grass sheweth8 itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered.8

26

The lambs [are] for thy clothing, and the goats [are] the price of the field.

27

And [thou shalt have] goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and [for] the maintenance for thy maidens.
