Proverbs 27:1-6, 10-12
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.
A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a fool's provocation is heavier than both.
Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming; but who can stand before jealousy?
Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
Your friend, and your father's friend, do not forsake; and do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity. Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far away.
Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me.
A prudent man sees danger and hides himself; but the simple go on, and suffer for it.
