Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:1 - The words of Agur the son of Jakeh; The oracle.
The man saith unto Ithiel, unto Ithiel and Ucal:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:2 -
Surely I am more brutish than any man,
And have not the understanding of a man;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:3 -
And I have not learned wisdom,
Neither have I the knowledge of the Holy One.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:4 -
Who hath ascended up into heaven, and descended?
Who hath gathered the wind in his fists?
Who hath bound the waters in his garment?
Who hath established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou knowest?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:5 -
Every word of God is tried:
He is a shield unto them that take refuge in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:6 -
Add thou not unto his words,
Lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:7 -
Two things have I asked of thee;
Deny me them not before I die:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:8 -
Remove far from me falsehood and lies;
Give me neither poverty nor riches;
Feed me with the food that is needful for me:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:9 -
Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is Jehovah?
Or lest I be poor, and steal,
And use profanely the name of my God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:10 -
Slander not a servant unto his master,
Lest he curse thee, and thou be held guilty.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:11 -
There is a generation that curse their father,
And bless not their mother.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:12 -
There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes,
And yet are not washed from their filthiness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:13 -
There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes!
And their eyelids are lifted up.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:14 -
There is a generation whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives,
To devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:15 -
The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give.
There are three things that are never satisfied,
Yea, four that say not, Enough:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:16 -
Sheol; and the barren womb;
The earth that is not satisfied with water;
And the fire that saith not, Enough.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:17 -
The eye that mocketh at his father,
And despiseth to obey his mother,
The ravens of the valley shall pick it out,
And the young eagles shall eat it.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:18 -
There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Yea, four which I know not:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:19 -
The way of an eagle in the air;
The way of a serpent upon a rock;
The way of a ship in the midst of the sea;
And the way of a man with a maiden.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:20 -
So is the way of an adulterous woman;
She eateth, and wipeth her mouth,
And saith, I have done no wickedness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:21 -
For three things the earth doth tremble,
And for four, which it cannot bear:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:22 -
For a servant when he is king;
And a fool when he is filled with food;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:23 -
For an odious woman when she is married;
And a handmaid that is heir to her mistress.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:24 -
There are four things which are little upon the earth,
But they are exceeding wise:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:25 -
The ants are a people not strong,
Yet they provide their food in the summer;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:26 -
The conies are but a feeble folk,
Yet make they their houses in the rocks;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:27 -
The locusts have no king,
Yet go they forth all of them by bands;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:28 -
The lizard taketh hold with her hands,
Yet is she in kings’ palaces.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:29 -
There are three things which are stately in their march,
Yea, four which are stately in going:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:30 -
The lion, which is mightiest among beasts,
And turneth not away for any;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:31 -
The greyhound; the he-goat also;
And the king against whom there is no rising up.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:32 -
If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself,
Or if thou hast thought evil,
Lay thy hand upon thy mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:33 -
For the churning of milk bringeth forth butter,
And the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood;
So the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.
