Book 20 : PROVERBS - Chapter 030


Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man


I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy


Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell


Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him


Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar


Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die


Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me


Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain


Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty


There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother


There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness


There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up


There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men


The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough


The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough


The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it


There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not


The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid


Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness


For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear


For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat


For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress


There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise


The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer


The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks


The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands


The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces


There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going


A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any


A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up


If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.


Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife
