View Proverbs 27 in the note window.

27:1 Boast not thyself of to a morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

    (a) Do not delay the time, but take the opportunity when it is offered.
27:4 Wrath [is] cruel, and anger [is] outrageous; but who [is] able to stand before b envy?
    (b) For the envious are obstinate, and cannot be reconciled.
27:6 Faithful [are] the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy [are] c deceitful.
    (c) They are flattering and seem friendly.
27:10 Thy own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother's d house in the day of thy calamity: [for] better [is] a neighbour [that is] near than a brother far off.
    (d) Do not trust any worldly help in the day of your trouble.
27:12 e A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, [and] hideth himself; [but] the simple pass on, [and] are punished.
    (e) )Read Geneva "Pr 22:3")
27:14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising f early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.
    (f) Hastily and without cause.

27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a g man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

    (g) One hasty man provokes another to anger.
27:19 As in water face [answereth] to face, h so the heart of man to man.
    (h) There is no difference between men by nature, only the grace of God makes the difference.
27:21 [As] the refining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so [is] a man to his i praise.
    (i) That is, he is either known to be ambitious and glorious, or humble and modest.
27:26 The k lambs [are] for thy clothing, and the goats [are] the price of the field.
    (k) This declares the great goodness of God towards man, and the diligence that he requires from him for the preservation of his gifts.
