Proverbs 30


30:1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, [even] the prophecy:
 the man spoke to Ithiel, even to Ithiel and Ucal,
30:2 Surely I [am] more brutish than [any] man, and have not the
 understanding of a man.
30:3 I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the
 holy.
30:4 Who hath ascended into heaven, or descended? who hath
 gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a
 garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what
 [is] his name, and what [is] his son's name, if thou canst
 tell?
30:5 Every word of God [is] pure: he [is] a shield to them that
 put their trust in him.
30:6 Add thou not to his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou
 be found a liar.
30:7 Two [things] have I required of thee; deny [them] not to me
 before I die:
30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies; give me neither poverty
 nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
30:9 Lest I be full, and deny [thee], and say, Who [is] the
 LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God
 [in vain].
30:10 Accuse not a servant to his master, lest he curse thee,
 and thou be found guilty.
30:11 [There is] a generation [that] curseth their father, and
 doth not bless their mother.
30:12 [There is] a generation [that are] pure in their own eyes,
 and [yet] are not washed from their filthiness.
30:13 [There is] a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and
 their eyelids are lifted up.
30:14 [There is] a generation, whose teeth [are as] swords, and
 their jaw-teeth [as] knives, to devour the poor from off the
 earth, and the needy from [among] men.
30:15 The horse-leech hath two daughters, [crying], Give, give.
 There are three [things that] are never satisfied, [yes], four
 [things] say not, [It is] enough:
30:16 The grave; and the barren womb; the earth [that] is not
 filled with water; and the fire [that] saith not, [It is]
 enough.
30:17 The eye [that] mocketh at [its] father, and despiseth to
 obey [its] mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out,
 and the young eagles shall eat it.
30:18 There are three [things which] are too wonderful for me,
 yes, four which I know not:
30:19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon
 a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way
 of a man with a maid.
30:20 Such [is] the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and
 wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
30:21 For three [things] the earth is disquieted, and for four
 [which] it cannot bear:
30:22 For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is
 filled with food.
30:23 For an odious [woman] when she is married; and a handmaid
 that is heir to her mistress.
30:24 There are four [things which are] little upon the earth,
 but they [are] very wise:
30:25 The ants [are] a people not strong, yet they prepare their
 food in the summer;
30:26 The conies [are but] a feeble people, yet they make their
 houses in the rocks;
30:27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by
 bands;
30:28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in king's
 palaces.
30:29 There are three [things] which go well, yes, four are
 comely in going:
30:30 A lion, [which is] strongest among beasts, and turneth not
 away for any;
30:31 A greyhound; a he-goat also; and a king, against whom
 [there is] no rising up.
30:32 If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if
 thou hast thought evil, [lay] thy hand upon thy mouth.
30:33 Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the
 wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of
 wrath bringeth forth strife.
