Observations of selflove,
Proverbs 27:1 Make not thy boost of tomorow, for thou knowest not what maye happen todaye. Proverbs 27:2 Let another ma prayse the, & not thine owne mouth: yee other folkes lippes, and not thyne. Proverbs 27:3 The stone is heuy, and the sonde weightie: but a fooles wrath is heuyer then they both. Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is a cruell thige, and furiousnesse is a very tempest: yee who is able to abyde envye?
of true love,
Proverbs 27:5 An open rebuke is better, then a secrete loue. Proverbs 27:6 Faithfull are the woundes of a louer, but ye kysses of an enemie are disceatfull. Proverbs 27:7 He that is full, abhorreth an hony combe: but vnto him that is hogrie, euery sower thinge is swete. Proverbs 27:8 He that oft tymes flytteth, is like a byrde yt forsaketh hir nest. Proverbs 27:9 The herte is glad of a swete oyntment and sauoure, but a stomacke that ca geue good councell, reioyseth a mans neghboure. Proverbs 27:10 Thyne owne frende and thy fathers frende se thou forsake not, but go not in to thy brothers house in tyme of thy trouble. Better is a frende at hode, then a brother farre of.
of care to avoid offences,
Proverbs 27:11 My sonne, be wyse, and thou shalt make me a glad herte: so that I shal make answere vnto my rebukers. Proverbs 27:12 A wyse man seynge the plage wyl hyde him self, as for fooles they go on still, and suffer harme. Proverbs 27:13 Take his garment that is suertie for a straunger, & take a pledge of him for the vnknowne mans sake. Proverbs 27:14 He that is to hastie to praise his neghboure aboue measure, shalbe taken as one yt geueth him an euell reporte. Proverbs 27:15 A brawlynge woman and the rofe of the house droppynge in a raynie daye, maye well be compared together. Proverbs 27:16 He that refrayneth her, refrayneth the wynde, and holdeth oyle fast in his hode. Proverbs 27:17 Like as one yro whetteth another, so doth one man comforte another. Proverbs 27:18 Who so kepeth his fyge tre, shal enioye the frutes therof: he that wayteth vpon his master, shal come to honoure. Proverbs 27:19 Like as in one water there apeare dyuerse faces, eue so dyuerse men haue dyuerse hertes. Proverbs 27:20 Like as hell & destruccion are neuer full, euen so the eyes of me can neuer be satisfied. Proverbs 27:21 Syluer is tryed in the moulde, & golde in the fornace, & so is a man, whan he is openly praysed to his face. Proverbs 27:22 Though thou shuldest bray a foole wt a pestell in a morter like otemeell, yet wil not his foolishnesse go from him.
and of the household care.
Proverbs 27:23 Se yt thou knowe the nombre of thy catell thy self, and loke well to thy flockes. Proverbs 27:24 For riches abyde not allwaye, & the crowne endureth not for euer. Proverbs 27:25 The hay groweth, ye grasse cometh vp, & herbes are gathered in ye mountaines. Proverbs 27:26 The lambes shal clothe the, & for the goates thou shalt haue money to yi husbondry. Proverbs 27:27 Thou shalt haue goates mylck ynough to fede the, to vpholde thy husholde, & to susteyne thy maydens.
