Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:1 - The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, the [fn]oracle. The man declares to Ithiel, to Ithiel and Ucal:

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

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:3 - Neither have I learned wisdom,
Nor do I have the knowledge of the Holy One.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:4 - Who has ascended into heaven and descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has wrapped the waters in [fn]His garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name or His son’s name?
Surely you know!

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:5 - Every word of God is tested;
He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:6 - Do not add to His words
Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:7 - Two things I asked of You,
Do not refuse me before I die:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:8 - Keep deception and [fn]lies far from me,
Give me neither poverty nor riches;
Feed me with the food that is my portion,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:9 - That I not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the LORD?”
Or that I not be in want and steal,
And profane the name of my God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:10 - Do not slander a slave to his master,
Or he will curse you and you will be found guilty.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:11 - There is a [fn]kind of man who curses his father
And does not bless his mother.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:12 - There is a [fn]kind who is pure in his own eyes,
Yet is not washed from his filthiness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:13 - There is a [fn]kind—oh how lofty are his eyes!
And his eyelids are raised in arrogance.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:14 - There is a [fn]kind of man whose teeth are like swords
And his jaw teeth like knives,
To devour the afflicted from the earth
And the needy from among men.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:15 - The leech has two daughters,
“Give,” “Give.”
There are three things that will not be satisfied,
Four that will not say, “Enough”:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:16 - [fn]Sheol, and the barren womb,
Earth that is never satisfied with water,
And fire that never says, “Enough.”

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:17 - The eye that mocks a father
And [fn]scorns a mother,
The ravens of the valley will pick it out,
And the young eagles will eat it.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:18 - There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Four which I do not understand:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:19 - The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the middle of the sea,
And the way of a man with a maid.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:20 - This is the way of an adulterous woman:
She eats and wipes her mouth,
And says, “I have done no wrong.”

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:21 - Under three things the earth quakes,
And under four, it cannot bear up:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:22 - Under a slave when he becomes king,
And a fool when he is satisfied with food,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:23 - Under an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
And a maidservant when she supplants her mistress.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:24 - Four things are small on the earth,
But they are exceedingly wise:

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

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:26 - The [fn]shephanim are not mighty people,
Yet they make their houses in the rocks;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:27 - The locusts have no king,
Yet all of them go out in ranks;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:28 - The lizard you may grasp with the hands,
Yet it is in kings’ palaces.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:29 - There are three things which are stately in their march,
Even four which are stately when they walk:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:30 - The lion which is mighty among beasts
And does not [fn]retreat before any,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:31 - The [fn]strutting rooster, the male goat also,
And a king when his army is with him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:32 - If you have been foolish in exalting yourself
Or if you have plotted evil, put your hand on your mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:33 - For the [fn]churning of milk produces butter,
And pressing the nose brings forth blood;
So the [fn]churning of anger produces strife.
