Proverbs 27

LXX 1 Boast not of to-morrow; for thou knowest not what the next day shall bring forth. NIV 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. LXX 2 Let thy neighbour, and not thine own mouth, praise thee; 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. LXX 3 A stone is heavy, and sand cumbersome; but a fool's wrath is heavier than both. NIV 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. LXX 4 Wrath is merciless, and anger sharp: but envy can bear nothing. NIV 4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? LXX 5 Open reproofs are better than secret love. NIV 5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love. LXX 6 The wounds of a friend are more to be trusted than the spontaneous kisses of an enemy. NIV 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. LXX 7 A full soul scorns honeycombs; but to a hungry soul even bitter things appear sweet. NIV 7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet. LXX 8 As when a bird flies down from its own nest, so a man is brought into bondage whenever he estranges himself from his own place. NIV 8 Like a bird that flees its nest is anyone who flees from home. LXX 9 The heart delights in ointments and wines and perfumes: but the soul is broken by calamities. NIV 9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. LXX 10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; and when thou art in distress go not into thy brother's house: better is a friend near than a brother living 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. LXX 11 Son, be wise, that thy heart may rejoice; and remove thou from thyself reproachful words. NIV 11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart; then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt. LXX 12 A wise man, when evils are approaching, hides himself; but fools pass on, and will be punished. NIV 12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. LXX 13 Take away the man's garment, (for a scorner has passed by) whoever lays waste another's goods. 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. LXX 14 Whosoever shall bless a friend in the morning with a loud voice, shall seem to differ nothing from one who curses . NIV 14 If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse. LXX 15 On a stormy day drops drive a man out of his house; so also does a railing woman out of his own house. NIV 15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm; LXX 16 The north wind is sharp, but it is called by name propitious. NIV 16 restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand. LXX 17 Iron sharpens iron; and a man sharpens his friend's countenance. NIV 17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. LXX 18 He that plants a fig-tree shall eat the fruits of it: so he that waits on his own 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. LXX 19 As faces are not like faces, so neither are the thoughts of men. NIV 19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. LXX 20 Hell and destruction are not filled; so also are the eyes of men insatiable. NIV 20 Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes. LXX 21 Fire is the trial for silver and gold; and a man is tried by the mouth of them that praise him. The heart of the transgressor seeks after mischiefs; but an upright heart seeks knowledge. NIV 21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but people are tested by their praise. LXX 22 Though thou scourge a fool, disgracing him in the midst of the council, thou wilt in no wise remove his folly 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. LXX 23 Do thou thoroughly know the number of thy flock, and pay attention to thine herds. NIV 23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; LXX 24 For a man not strength and power for ever; neither does he transmit it from generation to generation. NIV 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. LXX 25 Take care of the herbage in the field, and thou shalt cut grass, and gather the mountain hay; NIV 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, LXX 26 that thou mayest have sheep for clothing: pay attention to the land, that thou mayest have lambs. NIV 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. LXX 27 son, thou hast from me words very useful for thy life, and for the life of thy servants. NIV 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants.
