020:027:001
Boast not thyself of to morrow;
for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.


020:027:002
Let another man praise thee,
and not thine own mouth;
a stranger,
and not thine own lips.


020:027:003
A stone is heavy,
and the sand weighty;
but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both.


020:027:004
Wrath is cruel,
and anger is outrageous;
but who is able to stand before envy?


020:027:005
Open rebuke is better than secret love.


020:027:006
Faithful are the wounds of a friend;
but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.


020:027:007
The full soul loatheth an honeycomb;
but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.


020:027:008
As a bird that wandereth from her nest,
so is a man that wandereth from his place.


020:027:009
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart:
so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.


020:027:010
Thine 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 neighbour that is near than a brother far off.


020:027:011
My son,
be wise,
and make my heart glad,
that I may answer him that reproacheth me.


020:027:012
A prudent man foreseeth the evil,
and hideth himself;
but the simple pass on,
and are punished.


020:027:013
Take his garment that is surety for a stranger,
and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.


020:027:014
He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice,
rising early in the morning,
it shall be counted a curse to him.


020:027:015
A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.


020:027:016
Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind,
and the ointment of his right hand,
which bewrayeth itself.


020:027:017
Iron sharpeneth iron;
so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.


020:027:018
Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof:
so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.


020:027:019
As in water face answereth to face,
so the heart of man to man.


020:027:020
Hell and destruction are never full;
so the eyes of man are never satisfied.


020:027:021
As the fining pot for silver,
and the furnace for gold;
so is a man to his praise.


020:027:022
Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle,
yet will not his foolishness depart from him.


020:027:023
Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks,
and look well to thy herds.


020:027:024
For riches are not for ever:
and doth the crown endure to every generation?


020:027:025
The hay appeareth,
and the tender grass sheweth itself,
and herbs of the mountains are gathered.


020:027:026
The lambs are for thy clothing,
and the goats are the price of the field.


020:027:027
And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food,
for the food of thy household,
and for the maintenance for thy maidens.
