29 He awho is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,
Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
But when a wicked man rules, cthe people groan.
But a companion of harlots wastes his wealth.
But he who receives bribes overthrows it.
5 A man who dflatters his neighbor
Spreads a net for his feet.
But the righteous sings and rejoices.
7 The righteous econsiders the cause of the poor,
But the wicked does not understand such knowledge.
8 Scoffers fset a city aflame,
But wise men turn away wrath.
gWhether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace.
10 hThe bloodthirsty hate the blameless,
But the upright seek his 2well-being.
But a wise man holds them back.
All his servants become wicked.
jThe Lord gives light to the eyes of both.
14 The king who judges the kpoor with truth,
His throne will be established forever.
15 The rod and rebuke give lwisdom,
But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
But the righteous will see their mfall.
Yes, he will give delight to your soul.
But ohappy is he who keeps the law.
For though he understands, he will not respond.
pThere is more hope for a fool than for him.
Will have him as a son in the end.
22 qAn angry man stirs up strife,
And a furious man abounds in transgression.
23 rA man’s pride will bring him low,
But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
25 tThe fear of man brings a snare,
But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be 6safe.
But justice for man comes from the Lord.
And he who is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.
30 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, his utterance. This man declared to Ithiel—to Ithiel and Ucal:
2 aSurely I am more stupid than any man,
And do not have the understanding of a man.
Nor have bknowledge of the Holy One.
4 cWho has ascended into heaven, or descended?
dWho has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name,
If you know?
fHe is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
6 gDo not add to His words,
Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
(Deprive me not before I die):
Give me neither poverty nor riches—
hFeed me with the food allotted to me;
9 iLest I be full and deny You,
And say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or lest I be poor and steal,
And profane the name of my God.
Lest he curse you, and you be found guilty.
11 There is a generation that curses its jfather,
And does not bless its mother.
12 There is a generation kthat is pure in its own eyes,
Yet is not washed from its filthiness.
13 There is a generation—oh, how llofty are their eyes!
And their eyelids are 2lifted up.
14 mThere is a generation whose teeth are like swords,
And whose fangs are like knives,
nTo devour the poor from off the earth,
And the needy from among men.
Give and Give!

Four never say, “Enough!”:
The barren womb,
The earth that is not satisfied with water—
And the fire never says, “Enough!”

And scorns obedience to his mother,
The ravens of the valley will pick it out,
And the young eagles will eat it.
Yes, four which I do not understand:
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the 4midst of the sea,
And the way of a man with a virgin.
She eats and wipes her mouth,
And says, “I have done no wickedness.”
Yes, for four it cannot bear up:
22 qFor a servant when he reigns,
A fool when he is filled with food,
23 A 5hateful woman when she is married,
And a maidservant who succeeds her mistress.
But they are exceedingly wise:
25 rThe ants are a people not strong,
Yet they prepare their food in the summer;
Yet they make their homes in the crags;
Yet they all advance in ranks;
28 The 7spider skillfully grasps with its hands,
And it is in kings’ palaces.
Yes, four which are stately in walk:
And does not turn away from any;
31 A 8greyhound,
A male goat also,
And 9a king whose troops are with him.
Or if you have devised evil, tput your hand on your mouth.
And wringing the nose produces blood,
So the forcing of wrath produces strife.
