  • 1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, which is the prophecy. This man spoke to Ithiel, and to Ithiel and Ucal:
  • 2 Surely I am more stupid than any man, and do not have the understanding of a man.
  • 3 I neither learned wisdom nor have knowledge of holy.
  • 4 Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a clothing? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, if you know?
  • 5 Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
  • 6 Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
  • 7 Two things I request of You, do not deprive of them before I die:
  • 8 Remove vainity and lies far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food allotted to me;
  • 9 Lest I be full and deny You, and say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
  • 10 Do not accuse a servant to his master, lest he curse you, and you be found guilty.
  • 11 There is a generation that curses their father, and does not bless their mother.
  • 12 There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
  • 13 There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.
  • 14 There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, and whose jaws are like knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
  • 15 The leech has two daughters crying, “Give!” “Give!” There are three things that are never satisfied, yes, four things that never say, “It is enough!”:
  • 16 The grave, the barren womb, the earth that is not satisfied with water, and the fire that never says, “It is enough!”
  • 17 The eye that mocks his father, and hates to his mother, the ravens of the valley will pick it out, and the young eagles will eat it.
  • 18 There are three things which are too wonderful for me, yes, four which I do not understand:
  • 19 The way of an eagle in the air, the way of a serpent on a rock, the way of a ship in the midst of the sea, and the way of a man with a virgin.
  • 20 This is the way of an adulterous woman: she eats and wipes her mouth, and says, “I have done no wickedness.”
  • 21 For three things the earth is distrupted, yes, for four that it cannot bear:
  • 22 For a servant when he reigns, a fool when he is filled with food,
  • 23 A hateful woman when she is married, and a maidservant who is heir to her mistress.
  • 24 There are four things which are little on the earth, but they are exceedingly wise:
  • 25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their food in the summer;
  • 26 The rabbits are weak ones, yet they make their homes in the rocks;
  • 27 The locusts have no king, yet they all go forth in ranks;
  • 28 The spider takes hold with its hands, and it is in kings’ palaces.
  • 29 There are three things which go forth well, yes, four which are go beautifully:
  • 30 A lion, which is strongest among the beasts and does not turn away from any;
  • 31 A greyhound, a male goat also, and a king against whom there is no uprising.
  • 32 If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, or if you have thought evil, put your hand on your mouth.
  • 33 Because, as sure as the churning of milk produces butter, and wringing the nose produces blood, so the forcing of wrath produces strife.
