Proverbs 30:21 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 30:21

For three [things] the earth is disquieted
The inhabitants of it are made very uneasy; and for four [which] it cannot bear;
they are a load and burden upon it, and are intolerable to those that dwell on it, and make them very uncomfortable.

Proverbs 30:21 In-Context

19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.
20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
21 For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:
22 For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat;
23 For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.
