Book 20 : PROVERBS - Chapter 027


Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips


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


Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy


Open rebuke is better than secret love


Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful


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


As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place


Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel


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


My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me


A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished


Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman


He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him


A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike


Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself


Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend


Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured


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


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


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


Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him


Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds


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


The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered


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


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