Proverbs 27:17-27 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
17 Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens the wits a of another. 18 Anyone who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and anyone who takes care of a master will be honored. 19 Just as water reflects the face, so one human heart reflects another. 20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and human eyes are never satisfied. 21 The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, so a person is tested b by being praised. 22 Crush a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, but the folly will not be driven out. 23 Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds; 24 for riches do not last forever, nor a crown for all generations. 25 When the grass is gone, and new growth appears, and the herbage of the mountains is gathered, 26 the lambs will provide your clothing, and the goats the price of a field; 27 there will be enough goats' milk for your food, for the food of your household and nourishment for your servant-girls.
