Proverbs 27

JUB 1 Boast not thyself of tomorrow for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. NIV 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. JUB 2 Let another man praise thee and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips. NIV 2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips. JUB 3 A stone <em>is</em> heavy and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath <em>is</em> heavier than them both. NIV 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. JUB 4 Wrath <em>is</em> cruel, and anger <em>is</em> impetuous, but who <em>is</em> able to stand before envy? NIV 4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? JUB 5 Open rebuke <em>is</em> better than secret love. NIV 5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love. JUB 6 Faithful <em>are</em> the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy <em>are</em> deceitful. NIV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. JUB 7 The full soul loathes a honeycomb, but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. NIV 7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet. JUB 8 As a bird that wanders from her nest, so <em>is</em> a man that wanders from his place. NIV 8 Like a bird that flees its nest is anyone who flees from home. JUB 9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart, so <em>does</em> the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel. NIV 9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. JUB 10 Do not forsake thine own friend and thy father’s friend, neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity, <em>for</em> better <em>is</em> a neighbour <em>that is</em> near than a brother far off. 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. JUB 11 My son, be wise and make my heart glad that I may answer him that reproaches me. NIV 11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart; then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt. JUB 12 A prudent <em>man</em> foresees the evil <em>and</em> hides himself, <em>but</em> the simple pass on <em>and</em> are hurt by it. NIV 12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. JUB 13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger and take a pledge of him that is surety for a strange woman. 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. JUB 14 He that blesses his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him. NIV 14 If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse. JUB 15 A continual dripping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. NIV 15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm; JUB 16 Whosoever hides her hides the wind, because the oil in his right hand cries <em>out</em>. NIV 16 restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand. JUB 17 Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. NIV 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. JUB 18 Whosoever keeps the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof, so he that waits on his master shall be honoured. NIV 18 The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever protects their master will be honored. JUB 19 As in water face <em>corresponds</em> to face, so the heart of man to man. NIV 19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. JUB 20 Sheol and hell are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied. NIV 20 Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes. JUB 21 As the fining pot tries the silver and the furnace the gold; so the man is tried by the mouth of whoever praises him. NIV 21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but people are tested by their praise. JUB 22 Though thou should bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, <em>yet</em> his foolishness will not depart from him. 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. JUB 23 Be thou diligent to know the countenance of thy sheep, <em>and</em> put thy heart into thy herds. NIV 23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; JUB 24 For riches <em>are</em> not for ever, and does the crown <em>endure</em> to every generation? NIV 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. JUB 25 The tender grass shows itself, and the hay appears, and the herbs of the mountains are reaped. NIV 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, JUB 26 The lambs <em>are</em> for thy clothing, and the goats <em>are</em> for the price of the field. NIV 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. JUB 27 And <em>thou shalt have</em> goats’ milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and <em>for</em> the maintenance of thy maidens. NIV 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants.
