Proverbs 27:1-6

NIRV 1 Don't brag about tomorrow. You don't know what a day will bring. NIV 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. NIRV 2 Let another person praise you, and not your own mouth. Let someone else praise you, and not your own lips. NIV 2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips. NIRV 3 Stones are heavy. Sand weighs a lot. But letting a foolish person make you angry is a heavier load than both of them. NIV 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but provocation by a fool is heavier than both. NIRV 4 Anger is mean. Great anger overpowers you. But who can face jealousy? NIV 4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? NIRV 5 Being warned openly is better than being loved in secret. NIV 5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love. NIRV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted. But an enemy kisses you many times. NIV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
