Proverbs Chapter 27

-, : -, - . 1 Boast not thyself of to-morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
-; , -. 2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
-, ; , . 3 A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's vexation is heavier than they both.
, ; , . 4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is overwhelming; but who is able to stand before jealousy?
, -- . 5 Better is open rebuke than love that is hidden.
, ; , . 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are importunate.
, ; , - . 7 The full soul loatheth a honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
, --- -, . 8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.
, -; , -. 9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart; so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
() , --- , - ;
, .
10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity; {N}
better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
, ; . 11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that taunteth me.
, ; , . 12 A prudent man seeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the thoughtless pass on, and are punished.
-, - ; . 13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; and hold him in pledge that is surety for an alien woman.
, -- : , . 14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.
, ; (), . 15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike;
-; . 16 He that would hide her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand betrayeth itself.
; , -. 17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
, ; . 18 Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; and he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.
, -- -, . 19 As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.
, ; , . 20 The nether-world and Destruction are never satiated; so the eyes of man are never satiated.
, ; , . 21 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold, and a man is tried by his praise.
--, -- :
- , .
22 Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar with a pestle among groats, {N}
yet will not his foolishness depart from him. {P}
, ; , . 23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds;
; -, (). 24 For riches are not for ever; and doth the crown endure unto all generations?
, -; , . 25 When the hay is mown, and the tender grass showeth itself, and the herbs of the mountains are gathered in;
; , . 26 The lambs will be for thy clothing, and the goats the price for a field.
, --, ; , . 27 And there will be goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household; and maintenance for thy maidens.
