Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Proverbs 30

Agur's confession of faith.

Proverbs 30:1 The words of Agur, son of Jakeh, [even] the oracle,—The utterance of the man, for Ithiel, for Ithiel and Ucal. Proverbs 30:2 Surely, more brutish, am, I, than any man, nor doth, the understanding of a son of earth, pertain to me; Proverbs 30:3 Neither have I learned wisdom, nor, the knowledge of the Holy Ones, can I acquire. Proverbs 30:4 Who hath ascended the heavens and then descended? Who hath gathered the wind into his two hands? Who hath wrapped up the waters in a mantle? Who hath set up all the ends of the earth? What is his name and what the name of his son, when thou knowest? Proverbs 30:5 Every saying of God is refined, A shield, is, he, to them who seek refuge in him. Proverbs 30:6 Do not add unto his words, lest he convict thee, and thou be found false.

The two points of his prayer.

Proverbs 30:7 Two things, have I asked of thee, withhold them not from me, ere yet I die: Proverbs 30:8 Vanity and falsehood, remove far from me, Neither poverty nor riches, give me, Feed me with the food appointed me: Proverbs 30:9 Lest I be full, and deny, and say—Who is Yahweh? or lest I be impoverished and steal, and do violence to the Name of my God.

The meanest are not to be wronged.

Proverbs 30:10 Do not slander a servant to his master, lest he revile thee, and thou be found guilty.

Four wicked generations.

Proverbs 30:11 A generation! Its father, it revileth, and, its mother, it doth not bless. Proverbs 30:12 A generation! Pure in its own eyes, yet, from its filth, hath it not been bathed, Proverbs 30:13 A generation! How lofty are its eyes, and its eyelashes uplifted. Proverbs 30:14 A generation! Swords, are its teeth, and, knives, its incisors,—to devour the humbled out of the earth, and the needy, from among men.

Four things insatiable.

Proverbs 30:15 The vampire, hath two daughters, Give! Give! Three, there are, will not be satisfied, four, have not said, Enough! Proverbs 30:16 Hades, and barrenness,—A land not satisfied with water, and fire, that saith not, Enough!

Parents are not to be despised.

Proverbs 30:17 The eye that mocketh a father, and despiseth to obey a mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young of the eagle shall eat it.

Four things hard to be known.

Proverbs 30:18 Three, things there are, too difficult for me, yea, four, which I do not understand: Proverbs 30:19 The way of an eagle in the heavens, the way of a serpent on the rock,—the way of a ship in the heart of the sea, and the way of a man with a maid. Proverbs 30:20 So, is the way of a woman committing adultery,—she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no iniquity!

Four things intolerable.

Proverbs 30:21 Under three things, a land is stirred, yea, under four, she cannot bear up: Proverbs 30:22 Under a servant, when he reigneth, and a base man, when he is surfeited with food; Proverbs 30:23 Under a hateful woman, when she is married, and a handmaid when she driveth out her mistress.

Four things exceeding wise.

Proverbs 30:24 Four, things there are, the small of the earth,—yet, they, are wiser than the wise: Proverbs 30:25 The ants, a people, not strong,—yet prepare they, in summer, their food; Proverbs 30:26 The conies, a people of, no power, yet set they, among the crags, their house; Proverbs 30:27 King, is there none, to, the locusts,—yet go forth in swarms, do they all; Proverbs 30:28 The lizard, with hands, reneweth its hold,—yet, the same, is in the palaces of the king.

Four things stately.

Proverbs 30:29 Three, things there are which step along well, ye, four, which excel in going: Proverbs 30:30 The lion, hero among beasts, which turneth aside from the face of no one; Proverbs 30:31 The greyhound, or the he-goat,—and a king, having a band of soldiers with him.

Wrath is to be prevented.

Proverbs 30:32 If thou hast acted basely by lifting thyself up,—if thou hast plotted evil, [put thy] hand to [thy] mouth! Proverbs 30:33 Surely, the pressing of milk, bringeth forth curd, and, the pressing of the nose, bringeth forth blood, and, the pressing of wrath, bringeth forth strife.
