Proverbs 27

CEBA 1 Don't brag about tomorrow, for you don't know what a day will bring. NIV 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. CEBA 2 Let another person praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. NIV 2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips. CEBA 3 A stone is heavy and sand weighs much, but the nuisance of fools is heavier than both. NIV 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. CEBA 4 Wrath is cruel and anger is a flood, but who can withstand jealousy? NIV 4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? CEBA 5 A public correction is better than hidden love. NIV 5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love. CEBA 6 Trustworthy are the bruises of a friend; excessive are the kisses of an enemy. NIV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. CEBA 7 Someone who is full refuses honey, but anything bitter tastes sweet to a hungry person. NIV 7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet. CEBA 8 Like a bird wandering from its nest, so is one who wanders from home. NIV 8 Like a bird that flees its nest is anyone who flees from home. CEBA 9 Oil and incense make the heart glad, and the sweetness of friends comes from their advice. NIV 9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. CEBA 10 Don't desert your friend or a friend of your family; don't go to your relative's house when disaster strikes. Better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away. NIV 10 Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you— better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away. CEBA 11 Be wise, my child, and make my heart glad, so I can answer those who insult me. NIV 11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart; then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt. CEBA 12 Prudent people see evil and hide; the simpleminded go right to it and get punished. NIV 12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. CEBA 13 Take the garment of the person who secures a loan for a stranger; take his pledge for a foreigner. NIV 13 Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger; hold it in pledge if it is done for an outsider. CEBA 14 Greeting a neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning will be viewed as a curse. NIV 14 If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse. CEBA 15 The constant dripping on a rainy day and a contentious woman are alike; NIV 15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm; CEBA 16 anyone who can control her can control the wind or pick up oil in his hand. NIV 16 restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand. CEBA 17 As iron sharpens iron, so friends sharpen each other's faces. NIV 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. CEBA 18 Those who tend a fig tree will eat its fruit, and those who look after their master will be honored. NIV 18 The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever protects their master will be honored. CEBA 19 As water reflects the face, so the heart reflects one person to another. NIV 19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. CEBA 20 The grave and the underworld are never satisfied; and people's eyes are never satisfied. NIV 20 Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes. CEBA 21 A crucible is for silver and a furnace for gold, so are people in the presence of someone who praises them. NIV 21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but people are tested by their praise. CEBA 22 Even if you grind fools in a mortar, even grinding them along with the grain, their folly won't be driven from them. NIV 22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar, grinding them like grain with a pestle, you will not remove their folly from them. CEBA 23 Know your flock well; pay attention to your herds, NIV 23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; CEBA 24 for no treasure lasts forever, nor a crown generation after generation. NIV 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. CEBA 25 When the grass goes away, new growth appears, and the plants of the hills are gathered, NIV 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, CEBA 26 then the lambs will provide your clothes, and the goats will be the price of your fields. NIV 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. CEBA 27 There will be enough goat's milk for your food, for the food of your house, and to nourish your young women. NIV 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants.
