Proverbs 27:17-27 VUL/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Latin Vulgate (VUL) New International Version (NIV)
17 ferrum ferro acuitur et homo exacuit faciem amici sui 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
18 qui servat ficum comedet fructus eius et qui custos est domini sui glorificabitur 18 He who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who looks after his master will be honored.
19 quomodo in aquis resplendent vultus prospicientium sic corda hominum manifesta sunt prudentibus 19 As water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man.
20 infernus et perditio non replentur similiter et oculi hominum insatiabiles 20 Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are the eyes of man.
21 quomodo probatur in conflatorio argentum et in fornace aurum sic probatur homo ore laudantis 21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives.
22 si contuderis stultum in pila quasi tisanas feriente desuper pilo non auferetur ab eo stultitia eius 22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar, grinding him like grain with a pestle, you will not remove his folly from him.
23 diligenter agnosce vultum pecoris tui tuosque greges considera 23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds;
24 non enim habebis iugiter potestatem sed corona tribuetur in generatione generationum 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.
25 aperta sunt prata et apparuerunt herbae virentes et collecta sunt faena de montibus 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in,
26 agni ad vestimentum tuum et hedi agri pretium 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field.
27 sufficiat tibi lac caprarum in cibos tuos in necessaria domus tuae et ad victum ancillis tuis 27 You will have plenty of goats' milk to feed you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.
