And have not the understanding of a man.
4 fWho hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?
gWho hath gathered the wind in his fists?
hWho hath bound the waters in a garment?
Who hath established iall the ends of the earth?
6 pAdd thou not unto his words,
Lest he reprove thee, and thou qbe found a liar.
Give me neither poverty nor riches;
Feed me with food †convenient for me:
And say, Who is the Lord?
Or lest I be poor, and steal,
And ttake the name of my God in vain.
10 †Accuse not a servant unto his master,
11 There is a generation that xcurseth their father,
And doth not bless their mother.
12 There is a generation that are ypure in their own eyes,
And yet is not washed from their filthiness.
13 There is a generation, O how zlofty are their eyes!
And their eyelids are lifted up.
14 There is a generation, awhose teeth are as swords,
And their bjaw teeth as knives,
To cdevour the poor from off the earth,
And the needy from among men.
There are dthree things that are never satisfied,
The earth that is not filled with water;
And the fire that saith not, It is enough.
17 The eye that gmocketh at his father,
And the young eagles shall eat it.
Yea, dfour which I know not:
19 nThe way of an eagle in the air;
The way of a serpent upon a rock;
And the way of a man with a maid.
She eateth, and wipeth her mouth,
And saith, I have done no wickedness.
And for dfour which it cannot bear:
22 qFor a servant when he reigneth;
And ra fool when he is filled with meat;
And an handmaid uthat is heir to her mistress.
But they are †exceeding wise:
25 vThe ants are a people not strong,
Yet wthey prepare their meat in the summer;
Yet make they their houses in xthe rocks;
27 The locusts zhave no king,
And is in kings’ palaces.
29 There be bthree things which go well,
Yea, bfour are comely in going:
30 A clion which is strongest among beasts,
And dturneth not away for any;
And a king, against whom there is no rising up.
Or if thou hast ethought evil,
fLay thine hand upon thy mouth.
And the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood:
So the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.
