Proverbs 30:24-33

RSV 24 Four things on earth are small, but they are exceedingly wise: NIV 24 "Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise: RSV 25 the ants are a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer; NIV 25 Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer; RSV 26 the badgers are a people not mighty, yet they make their homes in the rocks; NIV 26 coneys are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags; RSV 27 the locusts have no king, yet all of them march in rank; NIV 27 locusts have no king, yet they advance together in ranks; RSV 28 the lizard you can take in your hands, yet it is in kings' palaces. NIV 28 a lizard can be caught with the hand, yet it is found in kings' palaces. RSV 29 Three things are stately in their tread; four are stately in their stride: NIV 29 "There are three things that are stately in their stride, four that move with stately bearing: RSV 30 the lion, which is mightiest among beasts and does not turn back before any; NIV 30 a lion, mighty among beasts, who retreats before nothing; RSV 31 the strutting cock, the he-goat, and a king striding before his people. NIV 31 a strutting rooster, a he-goat, and a king with his army around him. RSV 32 If you have been foolish, exalting yourself, or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth. NIV 32 "If you have played the fool and exalted yourself, or if you have planned evil, clap your hand over your mouth! RSV 33 For pressing milk produces curds, pressing the nose produces blood, and pressing anger produces strife. NIV 33 For as churning the milk produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife."
