Proverbs 27 - AMP

2 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. 3 Stone is heavy and sand weighty, but a fool's wrath is heavier and more intolerable than both of them. 4 Wrath is cruel and anger is an overwhelming flood, but who is able to stand before jealousy? 5 Open rebuke is better than love that is hidden. 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are lavish and deceitful. 7 He who is satiated loathes and treads underfoot a honeycomb, but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. 8 Like a bird that wanders from her nest, so is a man who strays from his home. 9 Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of a friend's counsel that comes from the heart. 10 Your own friend and your father's friend, forsake them not; neither go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity. Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far off . 11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me . 12 A prudent man sees the evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished . 13 Take the garment of one who is security for a stranger; and hold him in pledge when he is security for foreigners. 14 The flatterer who loudly praises and glorifies his neighbor, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted as cursing him . 15 A continual dripping on a day of violent showers and a contentious woman are alike; 16 Whoever attempts to restrain might as well try to stop the wind--his right hand encounters oil . 17 Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend . 18 Whoever tends the fig tree shall eat its fruit; so he who patiently and faithfully guards and heeds his master shall be honored. 19 As in water face answers to and reflects face, so the heart of man to man. 20 Sheol (the place of the dead) and Abaddon (the place of destruction) are never satisfied; so the eyes of man is never satisfied. 21 As the refining pot for silver and the furnace for gold , so let a man be in his trial of praise . 22 Even though like grain you should pound a fool in a mortar with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him. 23 Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and look well to your herds; 24 For riches are not forever; does a crown endure to all generations? 25 When the hay is gone, the tender grass shows itself, and herbs of the mountain are gathered in, 26 The lambs will be for your clothing, and the goats the price of a field. 27 And there will be goats' milk enough for your food, for the food of your household, and for the maintenance of your maids.
