Proverbs 30 
                              
PROV 30:1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,
PROV 30:2 Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man.
PROV 30:3 I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy.
PROV 30:4 Who hath ascended up 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?
PROV 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
PROV 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
PROV 30:7 Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:
PROV 30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
PROV 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.
PROV 30:10 Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty.
PROV 30:11 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.
PROV 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
PROV 30:13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
PROV 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.
PROV 30:15 The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough:
PROV 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.
PROV 30:17 The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
PROV 30:18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
PROV 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.
PROV 30:20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.
PROV 30:21 For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:
PROV 30:22 For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat;
PROV 30:23 For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.
PROV 30:24 There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
PROV 30:25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
PROV 30:26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
PROV 30:27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
PROV 30:28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.
PROV 30:29 There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:
PROV 30:30 A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;
PROV 30:31 A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up.
PROV 30:32 If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.
PROV 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.
