Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise:
the ants are not a strong people, yet they store up their food in the summer;
References for Proverbs 30:25
hyraxes are not a mighty people, yet they make their homes in the cliffs;
locusts have no king, yet all of them march in ranks;
a lizard can be caught in your hands, yet it lives in kings' palaces.
References for Proverbs 30:28
Three things are stately in their stride, even four are stately in their walk:
a lion, which is mightiest among beasts and doesn't retreat before anything,
a strutting rooster, a goat, and a king at the head of his army.
References for Proverbs 30:31
If you have been foolish by exalting yourself, or if you've been scheming, put your hand over your mouth.
For the churning of milk produces butter, and twisting a nose draws blood, and stirring up anger produces strife.
