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.
