Proverbs 27

27:1 Boast not thy selfe of to morrow: for thou knowest not what a day may bring foorth. 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine owne mouth; a stranger, and not thine owne lips. 27:3 A stone is heauie, and the sand weightie: but a fooles wrath is heauier then them both. 27:4 Wrath is cruell, and anger is outragious: but who is able to stand before enuie 27:5 Open rebuke is better then secret loue. 27:6 Faithfull are the woundes of a friend: but the kisses of an enemy are deceitfull. 27:7 The full soule loatheth an honie combe: but to the hungry soule euery bitter thing is sweete. 27:8 As a bird that wandreth from her nest: so is a man that wandreth from his place. 27:9 Oyntment and perfume reioyce the heart: so doeth the sweetnesse of a mans friend by heartie counsell. 27:10 Thine owne friend and thy fathers friend forsake not; neither goe in to thy brothers house in the day of thy calamitie: for better is a neighbour that is neere, then a brother farre off. 27:11 My sonne, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answere him that reprocheth me. 27:12 A prudent man foreseeth the euil, and hideth himselfe: but the simple passe on, and are punished. 27:13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. 27:14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising earely in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him. 27:15 A continuall dropping in a very rainie day, and a contentious woman, are alike. 27:16 Whosoeuer hideth her, hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand which be wrayeth it selfe. 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron: so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. 27:18 Whoso keepeth the figtree, shall eate the fruit therof: so he that waiteth on his master, shall be honoured. 27:19 As in water face answereth to face: so the heart of man to man. 27:20 Hell and destruction are neuer full: so the eyes of man are neuer satisfied. 27:21 As the fining pot for siluer, and the furnace for gold: so is a man to his praise. 27:22 Though thou shouldest bray a foole in a morter among wheate with a pestell, yet will not his foolishnesse depart from him. 27:23 Be thou diligent to knowe the state of thy flocks, and looke well to thy herds. 27:24 For riches are not for euer: and doth the crowne endure to euery generation 27:25 The hay appeareth, and the tender grasse sheweth it selfe, and herbes of the mountaines are gathered. 27:26 The lambes are for thy clothing, and the goates are the price of thy field. 27:27 And thou shalt haue goats milke enough for thy food, for the food of thy houshold, and for the maintenance for thy maidens.
