Proverbs 27:8-18 (Third Millennium Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man who wandereth from his place. 9 Ointment and perfume make the heart rejoice; so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by counsel from the heart. 10 Thine own friend and thy father's friend, forsake not; neither go to thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity; for better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off. 11 My son, be wise and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me. 12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil and hideth himself, but the simple pass on and are punished. 13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, but take a pledge from him for a strange woman. 14 He that, rising early in the morning, blesseth his friend with a loud voice: it shall be counted as a curse to him. 15 A continual dripping on a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. 16 Whosoever would hide her would hide the wind, and the ointment of his right hand which betrayeth itself. 17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. 18 Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof; so he that waiteth on his master shall be honored.
