Proverbs 30 - NIV

Sayings of Agur

1 The sayings of Agur son of Jakeh—an inspired utterance.
This man’s utterance to Ithiel:

“I am weary, God,
but I can prevail.[a]

2 Surely I am only a brute, not a man;
I do not have human understanding.

3 I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I attained to the knowledge of the Holy One.

4 Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son?
Surely you know!

5

“Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

6 Do not add to his words,
or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.

7

“Two things I ask of you, Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:

8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.

9 Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.

10

“Do not slander a servant to their master,
or they will curse you, and you will pay for it.

11

“There are those who curse their fathers
and do not bless their mothers;
