   1: Boast not thyself of tomorrow; For thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
   2: Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; A stranger, and not thine own lips.
   3: A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; But a fool's vexation is heavier than they both.
   4: Wrath is cruel, and anger is overwhelming; But who is able to stand before jealousy?
   5: Better is open rebuke Than love that is hidden.
   6: Faithful are the wounds of a friend; But the kisses of an enemy are profuse.
   7: The full soul loatheth a honeycomb; But to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
   8: As a bird that wandereth from her nest, So is a man that wandereth from his place.
   9: Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; So doth the sweetness of a man's friend [that cometh] of hearty counsel.
   10: Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; And go not to thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: Better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off.
   11: My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, That I may answer him that reproacheth me.
   12: A prudent man seeth the evil, [and] hideth himself; [But] the simple pass on, [and] suffer for it.
   13: Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; And hold him in pledge [that is surety] for a foreign woman.
   14: He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, It shall be counted a curse to him.
   15: A continual dropping in a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike:
   16: He that would restrain her restraineth the wind; And his right hand encountereth oil.
   17: Iron sharpeneth iron; So a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
   18: Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; And he that regardeth his master shall be honored.
   19: As in water face [answereth] to face, So the heart of man to man.
   20: Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied; And the eyes of man are never satisfied.
   21: The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; And a man is [tried] by his praise.
   22: Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with bruised grain, Yet will not his foolishness depart from him.
   23: Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, [And] look well to thy herds:
   24: For riches are not for ever: And doth the crown endure unto all generations?
   25: The hay is carried, and the tender grass showeth itself, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in.
   26: The lambs are for thy clothing, And the goats are the price of the field;
   27: And [there will be] goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, And maintenance for thy maidens.
