PROV 27:1 Boast not thyself of to-morrow, For thou knowest not what a day bringeth forth. PROV 27:2 Let another praise thee, and not thine own mouth, A stranger, and not thine own lips. PROV 27:3 A stone `isheavy, and the sand `isheavy, And the anger of a fool Is heavier than they both. PROV 27:4 Fury `isfierce, and anger `isoverflowing, And who standeth before jealousy? PROV 27:5 Better `isopen reproof than hidden love. PROV 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a lover, And abundant the kisses of an enemy. PROV 27:7 A satiated soul treadeth down a honeycomb, And `toa hungry soul every bitter thing `issweet. PROV 27:8 As a bird wandering from her nest, So `isa man wandering from his place. PROV 27:9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart, And the sweetness of one's friend -- from counsel of the soul. PROV 27:10 Thine own friend, and the friend of thy father, forsake not, And the house of thy brother enter not In a day of thy calamity, Better `isa near neighbour than a brother afar off. PROV 27:11 Be wise, my son, and rejoice my heart. And I return my reproacher a word. PROV 27:12 The prudent hath seen the evil, he is hidden, The simple have passed on, they are punished. PROV 27:13 Take his garment, when a stranger hath been surety, And for a strange woman pledge it. PROV 27:14 Whoso is saluting his friend with a loud voice, In the morning rising early, A light thing it is reckoned to him. PROV 27:15 A continual dropping in a day of rain, And a woman of contentions are alike, PROV 27:16 Whoso is hiding her hath hidden the wind, And the ointment of his right hand calleth out. PROV 27:17 Iron by iron is sharpened, And a man sharpens the face of his friend. PROV 27:18 The keeper of a fig-tree eateth its fruit, And the preserver of his master is honoured. PROV 27:19 As `inwater the face `isto face, So the heart of man to man. PROV 27:20 Sheol and destruction are not satisfied, And the eyes of man are not satisfied. PROV 27:21 A refining pot `isfor silver, and a furnace for gold, And a man according to his praise. PROV 27:22 If thou dost beat the foolish in a mortar, Among washed things -- with a pestle, His folly turneth not aside from off him. PROV 27:23 Know well the face of thy flock, Set thy heart to the droves, PROV 27:24 For riches `arenot to the age, Nor a crown to generation and generation. PROV 27:25 Revealed was the hay, and seen the tender grass, And gathered the herbs of mountains. PROV 27:26 Lambs `arefor thy clothing, And the price of the field `arehe-goats, PROV 27:27 And a sufficiency of goatsmilk `isfor thy bread, For bread to thy house, and life to thy damsels!
