Proverbs 27 ©
Various maxims and observations of Solomon, collected by the men of Hezekiah, about kings, and other subjects of both private and public concern.
bLet another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
3Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before 4envy?
dOpen rebuke is better than secret love.
The gfull soul 6loatheth an honeycomb; hbut to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
As ia bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.
Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which r*bewrayeth itself.
Be athou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and 9look well to thy herds.
The dlambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field.
