NAS 15 A constant dripping on a day of steady rain And a contentious woman are alike; NIV 15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm; NAS 16 He who would restrain her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand.

NIV 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. NAS 25 When the grass disappears, the new growth is seen, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in, NIV 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, NAS 26 The lambs will be for your clothing, And the goats will bring the price of a field, NIV 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field.

NIV 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants.
