Proverbs 27:6-17 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 Faithful are the 1wounds of a friend, But adeceitful are the 2kisses of an enemy. 7 A sated bman cloathes honey, But to a famished dman any bitter thing is sweet. 8 Like a 3bird that wanders from her nest, So is a man who 4wanders from his ehome. 9 5Oil and perfume make the heart glad, So a fman's counsel is sweet to his friend. 10 Do not forsake your own 6friend or 7your father's friend, And do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother far away. 11 8Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, That I may 9reply to him who reproaches me. 12 A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, The gnaive proceed and pay the penalty. 13 10Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for an hadulterous woman hold him in pledge. 14 11He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, It will be reckoned a curse to him. 15 A 12constant dripping on a day of steady rain And a contentious woman are alike; 16 He who would irestrain her jrestrains the wind, And kgrasps oil with his right hand. 17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another .
