RF PRO 27:1 On the Uncertainties of Life.
Boast not of yourself for to-morrow,
You know not what that day may bring!
RF PRO 27:2 Let a stranger praise you, not your mouth,
Another, and not your own lips.
RF PRO 27:3 A stone is heavy, and sand a load,
But a fool's fury more heavy than both.
RF PRO 27:4 Fury is fierce, and a raging flood;
But who can stand before jealousy?
RF PRO 27:5 Better open reproof, than hidden love:—
RF PRO 27:6 The reproofs of a friend preserve;
But an enemy's kisses betray.
RF PRO 27:7 The sated loathes a honeycomb,
To the hungry, bitter is sweet!
RF PRO 27:8 Like a bird strayed from its nest,
Is a man exiled from his home:
RF PRO 27:9 Oil and perfumes delight the heart,
And a good friend advising a man.
RF PRO 27:10 Forsake not your friend, or your father's friend;
Nor enter your brother's house
In the day of your distress;
For a friend is better near
Than a brother who keeps afar.
RF PRO 27:11 Be wise my son, and delight my heart,
As an answer to him who insults.
RF PRO 27:12 The prudent sees danger, and hides;—
The reckless go on, and suffer.
RF PRO 27:13 Take his cloak who is bail for a stranger;
A pledge from a loose woman's friend.
RF PRO 27:14 He who rises at early dawn
With shouts to give thanks to his friend,
Will be thought to be cursing him.
RF PRO 27:15 A drizzling shower on a rainy day,
And a quarrelsome wife are a pair.
RF PRO 27:16 Restrain her? Restrain the north wind!
And the scent on your hand!—If you can!
RF PRO 27:17 As iron sharpens iron,
So a man does the face of his friend.
RF PRO 27:18 Who tends the fig-tree, eats its fruit;
And who guards his master is thanked.
RF PRO 27:19 As water shows a face to a face.
So the heart of man, shows to man.
RF PRO 27:20 The Grave and Destruction are never filled,
And the eyes of man are unsated.
RF PRO 27:21 Silver by smelting, gold by a furnace,
But man is proved by what he praises.
RF PRO 27:22 If you pound a fool in a mortar with wheat
His follies will not depart from him!
RF PRO 27:23 The Result of Carefulness.
Carefully learn the state of your flocks;
Set your heart on the care of your herds;
RF PRO 27:24 For wealth will not last for ever,
Nor a crown for ages of ages.
RF PRO 27:25 On Autumn.
When the hay is mown, the pasture grows,
And the mountain crops are gathered;
RF PRO 27:26 The lambs then find you clothing,
And you sell fat goats from the field,
RF PRO 27:27 And rich milk from the goats to feed you,—
To feed your house, and nourish your girls,


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
