Observations of selflove,
Proverbs 27:1 Boast not thy selfe of to morowe: for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Proverbs 27:2 Let another man prayse 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 Anger is cruell, and wrath is raging: but who can stand before enuie?
of true love,
Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better then secret loue. Proverbs 27:6 The wounds of a louer are faithful, and the kisses of an enemie are pleasant. Proverbs 27:7 The person that is full, despiseth an hony combe: but vnto 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 owne place. Proverbs 27:9 As oyntment and perfume reioyce the heart, so doeth the sweetenes of a mans friend by hearty counsell. Proverbs 27:10 Thine owne friend and thy fathers friend forsake thou not: neither enter into 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 reioyce mine heart, that I may answere him that reprocheth me. Proverbs 27:12 A prudent man seeth the plague, and hideth himselfe: but the foolish goe on still, and are punished. Proverbs 27:13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and a pledge of him for the stranger. Proverbs 27:14 He that prayseth his friend with a loude voyce, rising earely in the morning, it shall be counted to him as a curse. Proverbs 27:15 A continual dropping in the day of raine, and a contentious woman are alike. Proverbs 27:16 He that hideth her, hideth the winde, & she is as ye oyle in his right hand, that vttereth it selfe. Proverbs 27:17 Yron sharpeneth yron, so doeth man sharpen the face of his friend. Proverbs 27:18 He that keepeth the fig tree, shall eate the fruite thereof: so he that waiteth vpon his master, shall come to honour. Proverbs 27:19 As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man. Proverbs 27:20 The graue and destruction can neuer be full, so the eyes of man can neuer be satisfied. Proverbs 27:21 As is the fining pot for siluer and the fornace for golde, so is euery man according to his dignitie. Proverbs 27:22 Though thou shouldest bray a foole in a morter among wheate brayed with a pestell, yet will not his foolishnes depart from him.
and of the household care.
Proverbs 27:23 Be diligent to know ye state of thy flocke, and take heede to the heardes. Proverbs 27:24 For riches remaine not alway, nor the crowne from generation to generation. Proverbs 27:25 The hey discouereth it selfe, and the grasse appeareth, and the herbes of the mountaines are gathered. Proverbs 27:26 The lambes are for thy clothing, and the goates are the price of the fielde. Proverbs 27:27 And let the milke of the goates be sufficient for thy foode, for the foode of thy familie, and for the sustenance of thy maydes.
