Proverbs 27:12-22 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
12 The sensible see danger and take cover; the foolish keep going and are punished.a 13 Take his garment,b for he has put up security for a stranger; get collateral if it is for foreigners.c d 14 If one blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be counted as a curse to him. 15 An endless dripping on a rainy day and a nagging wife are alike.e 16 The one who controls her controls the wind and grasps oil with his right hand. 17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.f 18 Whoever tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever looks after his master will be honored. 19 As the water reflects the face, so the heart reflects the person. 20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied,g and people's eyes are never satisfied. 21 Silver is [tested] in a crucible, gold in a smelter, and a man, by the praise he receives.h i 22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, you will not separate his foolishness from him.
