The Book of Proverbs Chapter 27 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 27 Do not boast about tomorrow for you do Not know what a day may bring forth Let another man praise you and not your Own mouth A stranger and not your own lips A stone is heavy and sand is weighty But a Fool's wrath is heavier than both Of them Roth is cruel and anger a torrent but Who is able to stand before jealousy Open rebuke is better than love Carefully concealed Faithful are the wounds of a friend But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful A Satisfied Soul loathes the honeycomb But to a hungry Soul every bitter thing Is sweet Like a bird that wanders from its nest Is a man who wanders from his place Ointment and perfume Delight the heart And the sweetness of a man's friend Gives Delight by hearty Council Do not forsake your own friend or your Father's friend nor go to your brother's House in the day of your calamity Better is a neighbor nearby than a Brother far away My son Be wise and make my heart glad that I May answer him who reproaches me A prudent man foresees evil and hides Himself The simple pass on and are punished

Take the Garment of him who is Surety For a stranger and hold it in pledge When he has Surety for a seductress He who blesses his friend with a loud Voice Rising early in the morning it Will be counted a curse to him A continual dripping on a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike Whoever restrains her restrains the wind And grasps oil with his right hand As iron sharpens iron So a man sharpens the countenance of his Friend Whoever keeps the Fig Tree will eat its Fruit So he who Waits on his master will be Honored As in water face reflects face so a Man's heart reveals the man Hell and destruction are Never full So the eyes of man are never satisfied The refining pot is for silver and the Furnace for gold And a man is valued by what others say Of him Though you grind a fool in a mortar with A pestle along with crushed grain yet His foolishness will not depart from him Be diligent to know the state of your Flocks and attend to your herds For riches are not forever Nor does a crown endure to all Generations When the hay is removed and the tender

Grass shows itself and the herbs of the Mountains are gathered in The Lambs will provide your clothing and The goats the price of a field You shall have enough goat's milk for Your food for the food of your household And the nourishment of your maidservants
