Proverbs 27:3-13

3 A stone is heavy,a and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both.
4 Wrathb is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.c
7 The full soul loathethd an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.
9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour 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, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
