Book 28 : KETUVIM - PROVERBS - Chapter 027


Boast not thyself of to-morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth


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 vexation is heavier than they both


Wrath is cruel, and anger is overwhelming; but who is able to stand before jealousy


Better is open rebuke than love that is hidden


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


The full soul loatheth a 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; 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 taunteth me


A prudent man seeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the thoughtless pass on, and are punished


Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; and hold him in pledge that is surety for an alien 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


He that would hide her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand betrayeth itself


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


Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; and he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured


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


The nether-world and Destruction are never satiated; so the eyes of man are never satiated


The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold, and a man is tried by his praise


Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar with a pestle among groats, 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 unto all generations


When the hay is mown, and the tender grass showeth itself, and the herbs of the mountains are gathered in


The lambs will be for thy clothing, and the goats the price for a field


And there will be goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household; and maintenance for thy maidens
