[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

PROV 27:1 Boast not thyself of tomorrow; For thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

PROV 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; A stranger, and not thine own lips.

PROV 27:3 A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; But a fool's vexation is heavier than they both.

PROV 27:4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is overwhelming; But who is able to stand before jealousy?

PROV 27:5 Better is open rebuke Than love that is hidden.

PROV 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; But the kisses of an enemy are profuse.

PROV 27:7 The full soul loatheth a honeycomb; But to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

PROV 27:8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, So is a man that wandereth from his place.

PROV 27:9 Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; So doth the sweetness of a man's friend `that cometh' of hearty counsel.

PROV 27:10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; And go not to thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: Better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off.

PROV 27:11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, That I may answer him that reproacheth me.

PROV 27:12 A prudent man seeth the evil, `and' hideth himself; `But' the simple pass on, `and' suffer for it.

PROV 27:13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; And hold him in pledge `that is surety' for a foreign woman.

PROV 27:14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, It shall be counted a curse to him.

PROV 27:15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike:

PROV 27:16 He that would restrain her restraineth the wind; And his right hand encountereth oil.

PROV 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; So a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

PROV 27:18 Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; And he that regardeth his master shall be honored.

PROV 27:19 As in water face `answereth' to face, So the heart of man to man.

PROV 27:20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied; And the eyes of man are never satisfied.

PROV 27:21 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; And a man is `tried' by his praise.

PROV 27:22 Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with bruised grain, Yet will not his foolishness depart from him.

PROV 27:23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, `And' look well to thy herds:

PROV 27:24 For riches are not for ever: And doth the crown endure unto all generations?

PROV 27:25 The hay is carried, and the tender grass showeth itself, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in.

PROV 27:26 The lambs are for thy clothing, And the goats are the price of the field;

PROV 27:27 And `there will be' goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, And maintenance for thy maidens.
