  • 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, because you do not know what a day may bring forth.
  • 2 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.
  • 3 A stone is heavy and the sand weighty, but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.
  • 4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous, but who is able to stand before envy?
  • 5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.
  • 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
  • 7 The satisfied soul loathes a honeycomb, but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
  • 8 As a bird that wanders from her nest, so is a man who wanders from his place.
  • 9 Ointment and perfume make the heart rejoice, so does the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.
  • 10 Do not forsake your own friend or your father’s friend, neither go into your brother’s house in the day of your calamity; because better is a neighbor who is near than a brother far off.
  • 11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me.
  • 12 A prudent man foresees the calamity and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.
  • 13 Take his garment that is a guarantor for a foreigner, and take a pledge of him for a foreign woman.
  • 14 He who blesses his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it will be counted a curse to him.
  • 15 A continual dripping on a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike;
  • 16 whoever restrains her restrains the wind, and the fragrant ointment of his right hand, which reveals itself.
  • 17 Iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
  • 18 Whoever keeps the fig tree will eat its fruit; so he who waits on his master will be honored.
  • 19 As in water face answers to face, so the heart of man to man.
  • 20 Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
  • 21 As the refining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold, so is a man to his praise.
  • 22 Though you should grind a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet his foolishness will not depart from him.
  • 23 Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and look well to your herds;
  • 24 because riches are not forever, and does the crown endure to every generation?
  • 25 The hay appears, and the tender grass shows itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered.
  • 26 The lambs are for your clothing, and the goats are the price of the field.
  • 27 And you will have enough goats’ milk for your food, for the food of your household, and for the maintenance of your maidens.
