   1: Boast not thyself of to-morrow, for thou knowest not what a day will bring forth.
   2: Let another 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 them both.
   4: Fury is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before jealousy?
   5: Open rebuke is better than hidden love.
   6: Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are profuse.
   7: The full soul trampleth on 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: Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart; and the sweetness of one's friend is [the fruit] of hearty counsel.
   10: Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; and go not into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
   11: Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me.
   12: A prudent [man] seeth the evil, [and] hideth himself; the simple pass on, [and] are punished.
   13: Take his garment that is become surety [for] another, and hold him in pledge for a strange woman.
   14: He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be reckoned a curse to him.
   15: A continual dropping on a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike:
   16: whosoever will restrain her restraineth the wind, and his right hand encountereth oil.
   17: Iron is sharpened by iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
   18: Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; and he that guardeth his master shall be honoured.
   19: As [in] water face [answereth] to face, so the heart of man to man.
   20: Sheol and destruction are insatiable; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
   21: The fining-pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; so let a man be to the mouth that praiseth him.
   22: If thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his folly depart from him.
   23: Be well acquainted with the appearance of thy flocks; look well to thy herds:
   24: for wealth is not for ever; and doth the crown [endure] from generation to generation?
   25: The hay is removed, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered in.
   26: The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of a field;
   27: and there is goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and sustenance for thy maidens.
