As in water face answereth to face,
So the heart of man to man.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:20 -
Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied;
And the eyes of man are never satisfied.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:21 -
The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold;
And a man is tried by his praise.

Yet will not his foolishness depart from him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:23 -

And look well to thy herds:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:24 -

And the goats are the price of the field;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:27 -
And there will be goats’ milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household,
And maintenance for thy maidens.
