1: Don't boast about tomorrow; for you don't know what a day may bring forth. 2: Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. 3: A stone is heavy, and sand is a burden; but a fool's provocation is heavier than both. 4: Wrath is cruel, and anger is overwhelming; but who is able to stand before jealousy? 5: Better is open rebuke than hidden love. 6: Faithful are the wounds of a friend; although the kisses of an enemy are profuse. 7: A full soul loathes a honeycomb; but to a hungry soul, every bitter thing is sweet. 8: As a bird that wanders from her nest, so is a man who wanders from his home. 9: Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart; so does earnest counsel from a man's friend. 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. 11: Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart, then I can answer my tormentor. 12: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge; but the simple pass on, and suffer for it. 13: Take his garment when he puts up collateral for a stranger. Hold it for a wayward woman! 14: He who blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse by him. 15: A continual dropping on a rainy day and a contentious wife are alike: 16: restraining her is like restraining the wind, or like grasping oil in his right hand. 17: Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens his friend's countenance. 18: Whoever tends the fig tree shall eat its fruit. He who looks after his master shall be honored. 19: As water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man. 20: Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied; and a man's eyes are never satisfied. 21: The crucible is for silver, and the furnace for gold; but man is refined by his praise. 22: Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, yet his foolishness will not be removed from him. 23: Know well the state of your flocks, and pay attention to your herds: 24: for riches are not forever, nor does even the crown endure to all generations. 25: The hay is removed, and the new growth appears, the grasses of the hills are gathered in. 26: The lambs are for your clothing, and the goats are the price of a field. 27: There will be plenty of goats' milk for your food, for your family's food, and for the nourishment of your servant girls.
