Proverbs 27

1  Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

2  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

3  A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both.

4  Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?

5  Open rebuke is better than secret love.

6  Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

7  The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

8  As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.

9  Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

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.
