Nov. 27 Proverbs (Dude, how many is there?!)

Former Catholic Guy Show Producer, Maureen McMurray
"For a persistent leak on a rainy day the match is a quarrelsome woman." - Proverbs 27:15

Chapter 27

1] Boast not of tomorrow, for you know not what any day may bring forth.
2] Let another praise you--not your own mouth; Someone else--not your own lips.
3] Stone is heavy, and sand a burden, but a fool's provocation is heavier than both.
4] Anger is relentless, and wrath overwhelming-- but before jealousy who can stand?
5] Better is an open rebuke than a love that remains hidden.
6] Wounds from a friend may be accepted as well meant, but the greetings of an enemy one prays against.
7] One who is full, tramples on virgin honey; but to the man who is hungry, any bitter thing is sweet.
8] Like a bird that is far from its nest is a man who is far from his home.
9] Perfume and incense gladden the heart, but by grief the soul is torn asunder.
10] Your own friend and your father's friend forsake not; but if ruin befalls you, enter not a kinsman's house. Better is a neighbor near at hand than a brother far away.
11] If you are wise, my son, you will gladden my heart, and I will be able to rebut him who taunts me.
12] The shrewd man perceives evil and hides; simpletons continue on and suffer the penalty.
13] Take his garment who becomes surety for another, and for the sake of a stranger, yield it up!
14] When one greets his neighbor with a loud voice in the early morning, a curse can be laid to his charge.
15] For a persistent leak on a rainy day the match is a quarrelsome woman.
16] He who keeps her stores up a stormwind; he cannot tell north from south.
17] As iron sharpens iron, so man sharpens his fellow man.
18] He who tends a fig tree eats its fruit, and he who is attentive to his master will be enriched.
19] As one face differs from another, so does one human heart from another.
20] The nether world and the abyss are never satisfied; so too the eyes of men.
21] As the crucible tests silver and the furnace gold, so a man is tested by the praise he receives.
22] Though you should pound the fool to bits with the pestle, amid the grits in a mortar, his folly would not go out of him.
23] Take good care of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds;
24] For wealth lasts not forever, nor even a crown from age to age.
25] When the grass is taken away and the aftergrowth appears, and the mountain greens are gathered in,
26] The lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats will bring the price of a field,
27] And there will be ample goat's milk to supply you, to supply your household, and maintenance for your maidens.
