Proverbs 27

Observations of selflove,

Proverbs 27:1 Boast not for to morrow, for thou knowest not what the day to come may bring forth. Proverbs 27:2 Let another praise thee, and not thy own mouth: a stranger, and not thy own lips. Proverbs 27:3 A stone is heavy, and sand weighty: but the anger of a fool is heavier than them both. Proverbs 27:4 Anger hath no mercy: nor fury, when it breaketh forth: and who can bear the violence of one provoked?

of true love,

Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better than hidden love. Proverbs 27:6 Better are the wounds of a friend, than the deceitful kisses of an enemy. Proverbs 27:7 A soul that is full shall tread upon the honeycomb: and a soul that is hungry shall take even bitter for sweet. Proverbs 27:8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that leaveth his place. Proverbs 27:9 Ointment and perfumes rejoice the heart: and the good counsels of a friend are sweet to the soul. Proverbs 27:10 Thy own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not: and go not into thy brother's house in the day of thy affliction. Better is a neighbour that is near than a brother afar off.

of care to avoid offences,

Proverbs 27:11 Study wisdom, my son, and make my heart joyful, that thou mayst give an answer to him that reproacheth. Proverbs 27:12 The prudent man seeing evil hideth himself: little ones passing on have suffered losses. Proverbs 27:13 Take away his garment that hath been surety for a stranger: and take from him a pledge for strangers. Proverbs 27:14 He that blesseth his neighbour with a loud voice, rising in the night, shall be like to him that curseth. Proverbs 27:15 Roofs dropping through in a cold day, and a contentious woman are alike. Proverbs 27:16 He that retaineth her, is as he that would hold the wind, and shall call the oil of his right hand. Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron, so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:18 He that keepeth the fig tree, shall eat the fruit thereof: and he that is the keeper of his master, shall be glorified. Proverbs 27:19 As the faces of them that look therein, shine in the water, so the hearts of men are laid open to the wise. Proverbs 27:20 Hell and destruction are never filled: so the eyes of men are never satisfied. Proverbs 27:21 As silver is tried in the fining-pot, and gold in the furnace: so a man is tried by the mouth of him that praiseth. The heart of the wicked seeketh after evils, but the righteous heart seeketh after knowledge. Proverbs 27:22 Though thou shouldst bray a fool in the mortar, as when a pestle striketh upon sodden barley, his folly would not be taken from him.

and of the household care.

Proverbs 27:23 Be diligent to know the countenance of thy cattle, and consider thy own flocks: Proverbs 27:24 For thou shalt not always have power: but a crown shall be given to generation and generation. Proverbs 27:25 The meadows are open, and the green herbs have appeared, and the hay is gathered out of the mountains. Proverbs 27:26 Lambs are for thy clothing: and kids for the price of the field. Proverbs 27:27 Let the milk of the goats be enough for thy food, and for the necessities of thy house, and for maintenance for thy handmaids.
