27:1 Don`t boast about tomorrow; For you don`t know what a day may bring forth.
27:2 Let another man praise you, And not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.
27:4 Wrath is cruel, And anger is overwhelming; But who is able to stand before jealousy?
27:5 Better is open rebuke Than hidden love.
27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; Although the kisses of an enemy are profuse.
27:8 As a bird that wanders from her nest, So is a man who wanders from his home.
27:10 Don`t forsake your friend and your father`s friend. Don`t go to your brother`s house in the day of your disaster: Better is a neighbor who is near than a distant brother.
27:11 Be wise, my son, And bring joy to my heart, Then I can answer my tormentor.
27:12 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge; But the simple pass on, and suffer for it:
27:13 Take his garment when he puts up collateral for a stranger; Hold it for a wayward woman!
27:15 A continual dropping on a rainy day And a contentious wife are alike:
27:17 Iron sharpens iron; So a man sharpens his friend`s countenance.
27:20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied; And a man`s eyes are never satisfied.
27:22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, Yet his foolishness will not be removed from him.
27:24 For riches are not forever, Nor does even the crown endure to all generations.
27:25 The hay is removed, and the new growth appears, The grasses of the hills are gathered in.
