Observations of selflove,
Proverbs 27:1 Make not thy boost of to morowe for þu knowest not what maye happen to daye. Proverbs 27:2 Let another man prayse the, and not thyne awne mouth: yee other folckes lyppes, and not thyne. Proverbs 27:3 The stone is heuy and the sande weyghtye: but a fooles wrath is heuyer then them both. Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is a cruell thinge and furiousnesse is a very tempest: but who is able to abyde enuye?
of true love,
Proverbs 27:5 An open rebuke is better then a secrete loue. Proverbs 27:6 Faythfull are the woundes of a louer, but the kysses of an enemye are cruell. Proverbs 27:7 He that is full, abhoreth an hony combe: but vnto him that is hongrye, euery sowre thinge is swete. Proverbs 27:8 He that oft tymes flytteth, is lyke a byrde þt forsaketh her nest. Proverbs 27:9 Balme and swete encense make the hert mery: so is the swete counsell of a mans frende that agreeth to his purpose. Proverbs 27:10 Thyne awne frende and thy fathers frende se thou forsake not: but 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 thou shalt make me a glad herte so that I shall make answere vnto my rebukers. Proverbs 27:12 A wyse man seynge the plage. wyll hyde hym selfe, as for fooles they go on styll, and suffer harme. Proverbs 27:13 Take hys garment þt is suertye for a straunger, and take a pledge of him for the vnknowen mans sake. Proverbs 27:14 He that is to hastye to prayse hys neyghboure aboue measure, shalbe taken as one that geueth hym an euell reporte. Proverbs 27:15 A braulynge woman and the rofe of the house droppynge in a raynye daye, maye well be compared together. Proverbs 27:16 He that refrayneth her, refrayneth the wynde, & holdeth oyle fast in hys hande. Proverbs 27:17 Lyke as one yron whetteth another, so doth one man comforte another. Proverbs 27:18 Who so kepeth hys fygge tre, shall enioye the frutes therof: euen so, he that wayteth vpon his master, shall come to honoure. Proverbs 27:19 Lyke as in one water there apeare dyuerse faces, euen so diuerse men haue diuerse hertes. Proverbs 27:20 Lyke as hell and destruccyon are neuer full, euen so the eyes of men can neuer be satisfyed. Proverbs 27:21 Syluer is tryed in the moulde, and golde in the fornace, and so is a man, when he is openly praysed to hys face. Proverbs 27:22 Though þu shuldest bray a foole wt a pestell in a morter lyke frumentye corne, yet will not hys foolyshnesse go from hym.
and of the household care.
Proverbs 27:23 Se þt þu knowe the nombre of thy catell thy selfe, & loke well to thy flockes. Proverbs 27:24 For ryches abyde not alwaye, & the crowne endureth not for euer. Proverbs 27:25 The heye groweth, the grasse commeth vp, & herbes are gathered in the mountaynes. Proverbs 27:26 The lambes shall clothe the and for þe goates thou shalt haue money to thy husbandry. Proverbs 27:27 Thou shalt haue goates mylck ynough to fede the, to vpholde thy housholde, and to susteyne thy maydens.
