Proverbs 27


27:1 Boast not thyself of to-morrow; for thou knowest not what a
 day may bring forth.
27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thy own mouth; a
 stranger, and not thy own lips.
27:3 A stone [is] heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's
 wrath [is] heavier than both.
27:4 Wrath [is] cruel, and anger [is] outrageous; but who [is]
 able to stand before envy?
27:5 Open rebuke [is] better than secret love.
27:6 Faithful [are] the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an
 enemy [are] deceitful.
27:7 The full soul lotheth a honey-comb; but to the hungry soul
 every bitter thing is sweet.
27:8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so [is] a man that
 wandereth from his place.
27:9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so [doth] the
 sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
27:10 Thy 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 neighbor [that is] near, than a brother far
 off.
27:11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer
 him that reproacheth me.
27:12 A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, [and] hideth himself;
 [but] the simple pass on, [and] are punished.
27:13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a
 pledge of him for a strange woman.
27:14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising
 early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.
27:15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious
 woman are alike.
27:16 Whoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of
 his right hand [which] bewrayeth [itself].
27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance
 of his friend.
27:18 He that keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit of it: so
 he that waiteth on his master shall be honored.
27:19 As in water face [answereth] to face, so the heart of man
 to man.
27:20 Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man
 are never satisfied.
27:21 [As] the fining-pot for silver, and the furnace for gold;
 so [is] a man to his praise.
27:22 Though thou shouldst bray a fool in a mortar among wheat
 with a pestle, [yet] his foolishness will not depart from him.
27:23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, [and]
 look well to thy herds.
27:24 For riches [are] not for ever: and doth the crown [endure]
 to every generation?
27:25 The plant appeareth, and the tender grass showeth itself,
 and herbs of the mountains are gathered.
27:26 The lambs [are] for thy clothing, and the goats [are] the
 price of the field.
27:27 And [thou shalt have] goats milk enough for thy food, for
 the food of thy household, and [for] maintenance for thy
 maidens.
