Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:3 - I have not learned wisdom, nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:4 - Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son's name? Surely you know!

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:6 - Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you, and you be found a liar.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:7 - Two things I ask of thee; deny them not to me before I die:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:8 - Remove far from me falsehood and lying; 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 the LORD?" or lest I be poor, and steal, and profane the name of my God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:10 - Do not slander a servant to his master, lest he curse you, and you be held guilty.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:15 - The leech has two daughters; "Give, give," they cry. Three things are never satisfied; four never say, "Enough":

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:16 - Sheol, the barren womb, the earth ever thirsty for water, and the fire which never says, "Enough."

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:17 - The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:18 - Three things are too wonderful for me; four 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 on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:20 - This is the way of an adulteress: she eats, and wipes her mouth, and says, "I have done no wrong."

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:21 - Under three things the earth trembles; under four it cannot bear up:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:22 - a slave when he becomes king, and a fool when he is filled with food;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:23 - an unloved woman when she gets a husband, and a maid when she succeeds her mistress.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:24 - Four things on earth are small, but they are exceedingly 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 badgers are a people not mighty, yet they make their homes in the rocks;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:27 - the locusts have no king, yet all of them march in rank;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:28 - the lizard you can take in your hands, yet it is in kings' palaces.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:29 - Three things are stately in their tread; four are stately in their stride:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:30 - the lion, which is mightiest among beasts and does not turn back before any;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:31 - the strutting cock, the he-goat, and a king striding before his people.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 30:33 - For pressing milk produces curds, pressing the nose produces blood, and pressing anger produces strife.
