Proverbs 27

Observations of selflove,

Proverbs 27:1 Make not thy boast of to morowe: for thou knowest not what a day may bring foorth. Proverbs 27:2 Let another man prayse thee, and not thyne owne mouth, yea other folkes, and not thyne owne lippes. Proverbs 27:3 The stone is heauie, and the sande wayghtie: but a fooles wrath is heauier then them both. Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is a cruell thing, and furiousnesse is a very tempest: but who is able to abide enuie?

of true love,

Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke, is better then secrete loue. Proverbs 27:6 Faythfull are the woundes of a louer: but the kysses of an enemie are cruell. Proverbs 27:7 He that is full, abhorreth an honye combe: but vnto hym that is hungrye, euery sowre thing is sweete. Proverbs 27:8 He that oft times flitteth, is like a byrd that forsaketh her nest. Proverbs 27:9 Baulme and sweete incense make the heart merie: so sweete is that frende that geueth counsell from the heart. Proverbs 27:10 Thyne owne frende and thy fathers frende see thou forsake not, and go not into thy brothers house in tyme of thy trouble: for better is a frende at hand, then a brother farre of.

of care to avoid offences,

Proverbs 27:11 My sonne be wyse, and make me a glad heart, that I may make aunswere vnto my rebukers. Proverbs 27:12 A wyse man seing the plague, wyll hide hym selfe: as for fooles they go on styll and suffer harme. Proverbs 27:13 Take his garment that is suretie for a straunger, and take a pledge of hym for the vnknowen sake. Proverbs 27:14 He that is to hastie to praise his neighbour aboue measure, shalbe taken as one that geueth hym an euyll report. Proverbs 27:15 A brawling woman and the roofe of the house dropping in a raynie day, may well be compared together. Proverbs 27:16 He that stilleth her, stilleth the winde, and stoppeth the smell of the oyntment in his hande. Proverbs 27:17 Like as one iron whetteth another, so doth one man comfort another. Proverbs 27:18 Whoso kepeth his figge tree, shall eate the fruites thereof: so he that wayteth vpon his maister, shall come to honour. Proverbs 27:19 Like as in one water there appeare diuers faces: euen so diuers men haue diuers heartes. Proverbs 27:20 Hell and destruction are neuer full: euen so the eyes of men can neuer be satisfied. Proverbs 27:21 As is the fining pot for the siluer, and the furnace for golde: so is a man tryed by the mouth of him that prayseth him. Proverbs 27:22 Though thou shouldest bray a foole with a pestel in a morter like furmentie corne: yet wyll not his foolishnes go from hym.

and of the household care.

Proverbs 27:23 Be thou diligent to knowe the state of thy cattell thy selfe, and loke well to thy flockes. Proverbs 27:24 For riches abideth not alway, and the crowne endureth not for euer. Proverbs 27:25 The hay groweth, the grasse commeth vp, and hearbes are gathered in the mountaynes. Proverbs 27:26 The lambes shall clothe thee, and for the goates thou shalt haue money to thy husbandry. Proverbs 27:27 Thou shalt haue goates milke inough to feede thee, to vpholde thy housholde, and to sustayne thy maydens.
