1 Boast not thyself of [a]tomorrow, for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth: a stranger, and not thine own lips.
3 A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty: but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.
4 Anger is cruel, and wrath is raging: but who can stand before [b]envy?
5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.
6 The wounds of a lover are faithful, and the kisses of an enemy are [c]pleasant.
7 The person that is full, despiseth an honeycomb: but unto the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
