   1: The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, [even] the prophecy: the man spoke to Ithiel, even to Ithiel and Ucal,
   2: Surely I [am] more brutish than [any] man, and have not the understanding of a man.
   3: I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy.
   4: Who hath ascended into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what [is] his name, and what [is] his son's name, if thou canst tell?
   5: Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield to them that put their trust in him.
   6: Add thou not to his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
   7: Two [things] have I required of thee; deny [them] not to me before I die:
   8: Remove far from me vanity and lies; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
   9: Lest I be full, and deny [thee], and say, Who [is] the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God [in vain].
   10: Accuse not a servant to his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty.
   11: [There is] a generation [that] curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.
   12: [There is] a generation [that are] pure in their own eyes, and [yet] are not washed from their filthiness.
   13: [There is] a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
   14: [There is] a generation, whose teeth [are as] swords, and their jaw-teeth [as] knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from [among] men.
   15: The horse-leech hath two daughters, [crying], Give, give. There are three [things that] are never satisfied, [yes], four [things] say not, [It is] enough:
   16: The grave; and the barren womb; the earth [that] is not filled with water; and the fire [that] saith not, [It is] enough.
   17: The eye [that] mocketh at [its] father, and despiseth to obey [its] mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
   18: There are three [things which] are too wonderful for me, yes, four which I know not:
   19: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.
   20: Such [is] the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
   21: For three [things] the earth is disquieted, and for four [which] it cannot bear:
   22: For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with food.
   23: For an odious [woman] when she is married; and a handmaid that is heir to her mistress.
   24: There are four [things which are] little upon the earth, but they [are] very wise:
   25: The ants [are] a people not strong, yet they prepare their food in the summer;
   26: The conies [are but] a feeble people, yet they make their houses in the rocks;
   27: The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
   28: The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in king's palaces.
   29: There are three [things] which go well, yes, four are comely in going:
   30: A lion, [which is] strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;
   31: A greyhound; a he-goat also; and a king, against whom [there is] no rising up.
   32: If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, [lay] thy hand upon thy mouth.
   33: Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.
