Proverbs 27:1 Boast not thy selfe of to morrow: for thou knowest not what a day may bring foorth. Proverbs 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine owne mouth; a stranger, and not thine owne lips. Proverbs 27:3 A stone [is] heauie, and the sand weightie: but a fooles wrath is heauier then them both. Proverbs 27:4 Wrath [is] cruell, and anger [is] outragious: but who is able to stand before enuie?

Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke [is] better then secret loue. Proverbs 27:6 Faithfull [are] the woundes of a friend: but the kisses of an enemy are deceitfull. Proverbs 27:7 The full soule loatheth an honie combe: but to the hungry soule euery bitter thing is sweete. Proverbs 27:8 As a bird that wandreth from her nest: so [is] a man [that] wandreth from his place. Proverbs 27:9 Oyntment and perfume reioyce the heart: so doeth the sweetnesse of a mans friend by heartie counsell. Proverbs 27:10 Thine owne friend and thy fathers friend forsake not; neither goe in to thy brothers house in the day of thy calamitie: for better [is] a neighbour that is neere, then a brother farre off.
of care to avoid offences,
Proverbs 27:11 My sonne, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answere him that reprocheth me. Proverbs 27:12 A prudent man foreseeth the euil, [and] hideth himselfe: [but] the simple passe on, [and] are punished. Proverbs 27:13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. Proverbs 27:14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising earely in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him. Proverbs 27:15 A continuall dropping in a very rainie day, and a contentious woman, are alike. Proverbs 27:16 Whosoeuer hideth her, hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand [which] be wrayeth [it selfe]. Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron: so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:18 Whoso keepeth the figtree, shall eate the fruit therof: so he that waiteth on his master, shall be honoured. Proverbs 27:19 As in water face [answereth] to face: so the heart of man to man. Proverbs 27:20 Hell and destruction are neuer full: so the eyes of man are neuer satisfied. Proverbs 27:21 As the fining pot for siluer, and the furnace for gold: so [is] a man to his praise. Proverbs 27:22 Though thou shouldest bray a foole in a morter among wheate with a pestell, [yet] will not his foolishnesse depart from him.
and of the household care.
Proverbs 27:23 Be thou diligent to knowe the state of thy flocks, [and] looke well to thy herds. Proverbs 27:24 For riches [are] not for euer: and doth the crowne [endure] to euery generation?
