Proverbs 27:4-14 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
4 Fury is cruel, and anger is a flood, but who can withstand jealousy? 5 Better an open reprimand than concealed love. 6 The wounds of a friend are trustworthy, but the kisses of an enemy are excessive.a b 7 A person who is full tramples on a honeycomb, but to a hungry person, any bitter thing is sweet. 8 A man wandering from his home is like a bird wandering from its nest. 9 Oil and incense bring joy to the heart, and the sweetness of a friend is better than self-counsel.c 10 Don't abandon your friend or your father's friend, and don't go to your brother's house in your time of calamity; better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.d 11 Be wise, my son, and bring my heart joy, so that I can answer anyone who taunts me.e 12 The sensible see danger and take cover; the foolish keep going and are punished.f 13 Take his garment,g for he has put up security for a stranger; get collateral if it is for foreigners.h i 14 If one blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be counted as a curse to him.
