Proverbs 27

KJVA 1 Boast not thyself of to morrow; 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. KJVA 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. KJVA 3 A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both. NIV 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. KJVA 4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy? NIV 4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? KJVA 5 Open rebuke is better than secret love. NIV 5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love. KJVA 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend ; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful . NIV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. KJVA 7 The full soul loatheth an 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. KJVA 8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place. NIV 8 Like a bird that flees its nest is anyone who flees from home. KJVA 9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth 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. KJVA 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. 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. KJVA 11 My son, be wise , and make my heart glad , that I may answer him that reproacheth me. NIV 11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart; then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt. KJVA 12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on , and are punished . NIV 12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. KJVA 13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger , and take a pledge of him 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. KJVA 14 He that blesseth 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. KJVA 15 A continual dropping 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; KJVA 16 Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself. NIV 16 restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand. KJVA 17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. NIV 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. KJVA 18 Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth 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. KJVA 19 As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man. NIV 19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. KJVA 20 Hell and destruction are never full ; so the eyes of man are never satisfied . NIV 20 Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes. KJVA 21 As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise. NIV 21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but people are tested by their praise. KJVA 22 Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness 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. KJVA 23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. NIV 23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; KJVA 24 For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? NIV 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. KJVA 25 The hay appeareth , and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered . NIV 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, KJVA 26 The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. NIV 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. KJVA 27 And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens. NIV 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants.
