Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:1 - Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day may bring forth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:2 - Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth;
A stranger, and not your own lips.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:3 - A stone is heavy and sand is weighty,
But a fool’s wrath is heavier than both of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:4 - Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent,
But who is able to stand before jealousy?

And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel.

Nor go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity;

It will be counted a curse to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:15 - A continual dripping on a very rainy day
And a contentious woman are alike;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:16 - Whoever restrains her restrains the wind,
And grasps oil with his right hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:17 - As iron sharpens iron,
So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:18 - Whoever keeps the fig tree will eat its fruit;
So he who waits on his master will be honored.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:19 - As in water face reflects face,
So a man’s heart reveals the man.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:20 - Hell[fn] and Destruction[fn] are never full;
So 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 valued by what others say of him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:22 - Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain,
Yet his foolishness will not depart from him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:23 - Be diligent to know the state of your flocks,
And attend to your herds;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:24 - For riches are not forever,
Nor does a crown endure to all generations.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:25 - When the hay is removed, and the tender grass shows itself,
And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:26 - The lambs will provide your clothing,
And the goats the price of a field;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 27:27 - You shall have enough goats’ milk for your food,
For the food of your household,
And the nourishment of your maidservants.
