Proverbs 27
New Living Translation
27Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring.H1984H4279H3045H3117H3205 2Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth—a stranger, not your own lips.H2114H1984H6310H5237H8193 3A stone is heavy and sand is weighty, but the resentment caused by a fool is even heavier.H68H3514H2344H5192H191H3708H3515H8147 4Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood, but jealousy is even more dangerous.H2534H395H639H7858H5975H6440H7068 5An open rebuke is better than hidden love!H1540H8433H2896H5641H160 6Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.H539H6482H157H5390H8130H6280 7A person who is full refuses honey, but even bitter food tastes sweet to the hungry.H7649H5315H947H5317H7457H5315H4751H4966 8A person who strays from home is like a bird that strays from its nest.H6833H5074H7064H376H5074H4725 9The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.H8081H7004H8055H3820H4986H7453H5315H6098 10Never abandon a friend—either yours or your father’s. When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away.H7453H1H7453H5800H935H251H1004H3117H343H2896H7934H7138H251H7350 11Be wise, my child, and make my heart glad. Then I will be able to answer my critics.H1121H2449H3820H8055H7725H1697H2778 12A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.H6175H7200H7451H5641H6612H5674H6064 13Get security from someone who guarantees a stranger’s debt. Get a deposit if he does it for foreigners.H3947H899H6148H2114H2254H5237 14A loud and cheerful greeting early in the morning will be taken as a curse!H1288H7453H1419H6963H7925H1242H2803H7045 15A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping on a rainy day.H2956H1812H5464H3117H4079H4066H802H7737 16Stopping her complaints is like trying to stop the wind or trying to hold something with greased hands.H6845H6845H7307H8081H3225H7121 17As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.H1270H2300H1270H376H2300H6440H7453 18As workers who tend a fig tree are allowed to eat the fruit, so workers who protect their employer’s interests will be rewarded.H5341H8384H398H6529H8104H113H3513 19As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person.H4325H6440H6440H3820H120H120 20Just as Death and Destruction are never satisfied, so human desire is never satisfied.H7585H11H10H3808H7646H5869H120H7646 21Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but a person is tested by being praised.H4715H3701H3564H2091H376H6310H4110 22You cannot separate fools from their foolishness, even though you grind them like grain with mortar and pestle.H3806H191H4388H8432H7383H5940H200H5493 23Know the state of your flocks, and put your heart into caring for your herds,H3045H3045H6440H6629H7896H3820H5739 24for riches don’t last forever, and the crown might not be passed to the next generation.H2633H5769H5145H1755H1755 25After the hay is harvested and the new crop appears and the mountain grasses are gathered in,H2682H1540H1877H7200H6212H2022H622 26your sheep will provide wool for clothing, and your goats will provide the price of a field.H3532H3830H6260H4242H7704 27And you will have enough goats’ milk for yourself, your family, and your servant girls.H5795H2461H1767H3899H3899H1004H2416H5291
