Proverbs 30

30:1 The words of Agur the sonne of Iakeh, euen the prophecy: The man spake vnto Ithiel, euen vnto Ithiel and Ucal. 30:2 Surely I am more brutish then any man, and haue not the vnderstanding of a man. 30:3 I neither learned wisedome, nor haue the knowledge of the holy. 30:4 Who hath ascended vp into heauen, 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 sonnes name, if thou canst tell 30:5 Euery word of God is pure: he is a shield vnto them that put their trust in him. 30:6 Adde thou not vnto his words, lest he reproue thee, and thou be found a lyar. 30:7 Two things haue I required of thee, deny me them not before I die. 30:8 Remoue farre from mee vanity, and lyes; giue me neither pouerty, nor riches, feede me with food conuenient for me. 30:9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord or lest I be poore, and steale, and take the name of my God in vaine. 30:10 Accuse not a seruant vnto his master; lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty. 30:11 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not blesse their mother. 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their owne eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthinesse. 30:13 There is a generation, O howe lofty are their eyes! and their eye-lids are lifted vp. 30:14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their iaw-teeth as kniues, to deuoure the poore from off the earth, and the needy from among men. 30:15 The horse-leach hath two daughters, crying, Giue, giue. There are three things that are neuer satisfied, yea foure things say not, It is enough: 30:16 The graue; and the barren wombe; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough. 30:17 The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother; the rauens of the valley shall picke it out, and the young Eagles shall eate it. 30:18 There be three things which are too wonderfull for me; yea foure, which I know not: 30:19 The way of an Eagle in the ayre; the way of a serpent vpon a rocke; the the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid. 30:20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman: she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I haue done no wickednesse. 30:21 For three things the earth is disquieted, and for foure which it cannot beare: 30:22 For a seruant when he reigneth, and a foole when hee is filled with meate: 30:23 For an odious woman when shee is married, and an handmayd that is heire to her mistresse. 30:24 There be foure things which are little vpon the earth; but they are exceeding wise: 30:25 The Ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meate in the summer. 30:26 The conies are but a feeble folke, yet make they their houses in the rocks 30:27 The locustes haue no king, yet goe they forth all of them by bands. 30:28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings palaces. 30:29 There be three things which goe well, yea foure are comely in going: 30:30 A lyon which is strongest among beastes, and turneth not away for any: 30:31 A gray-hound; an hee-goate also; and a king, against whom there is no rising vp. 30:32 If thou hast done foolishly in lifting vp thy selfe, or if thou hast thought euill, lay thine hand vpon thy mouth. 30:33 Surely the churning of milke bringeth forth butter; and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.
