Hebrew Bible, Proverbs, 30.14-30.16


דּוֹר חֲרָבוֹת שִׁנָּיו וּמַאֲכָלוֹת מְתַלְּעֹתָיו לֶאֱכֹל עֲנִיִּים מֵאֶרֶץ וְאֶבְיוֹנִים מֵאָדָם׃There is a generation whose teeth are as swords, and their great teeth as knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.


לַעֲלוּקָה שְׁתֵּי בָנוֹת הַב הַב שָׁלוֹשׁ הֵנָּה לֹא תִשְׂבַּעְנָה אַרְבַּע לֹא־אָמְרוּ הוֹן׃The horseleech hath two daughters: ‘Give, give.’ There are three things that are never satisfied, Yea, four that say not: ‘Enough’:


שְׁאוֹל וְעֹצֶר רָחַם אֶרֶץ לֹא־שָׂבְעָה מַּיִם וְאֵשׁ לֹא־אָמְרָה הוֹן׃The grave; and the barren womb; The earth that is not satisfied with water; And the fire that saith not: ‘Enough.’

To understand a proverb, and a figure; The words of the wise, and their dark sayings." 6.16. There are six things which the LORD hateth, Yea, seven which are an abomination unto Him:" 6.17. Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood;" 6.18. A heart that deviseth wicked thoughts, Feet that are swift in running to evil;" 6.19. A false witness that breatheth out lies, And he that soweth discord among brethren." 7.6. For at the window of my house I looked forth through my lattice;" 7.7. And I beheld among the thoughtless ones, I discerned among the youths, A young man void of understanding," 7.8. Passing through the street near her corner, And he went the way to her house;" 7.9. In the twilight, in the evening of the day, In the blackness of night and the darkness." 7.10. And, behold, there met him a woman With the attire of a harlot, and wily of heart." 7.11. She is riotous and rebellious, Her feet abide not in her house;" 7.12. Now she is in the streets, now in the broad places, And lieth in wait at every corner." 7.13. So she caught him, and kissed him, And with an impudent face she said unto him:" 7.14. ’Sacrifices of peace-offerings were due from me; This day have I paid my vows." 7.15. Therefore came I forth to meet thee, To seek thy face, and I have found thee." 7.16. I have decked my couch with coverlets, With striped cloths of the yarn of Egypt." 7.17. I have perfumed my bed With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon." 7.18. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning; Let us solace ourselves with loves." 7.19. For my husband is not at home, He is gone a long journey;" 7.20. He hath taken the bag of money with him; He will come home at the full moon.’" 7.21. With her much fair speech she causeth him to yield, With the blandishment of her lips she enticeth him away." 7.22. He goeth after her straightway, As an ox that goeth to the slaughter, Or as one in fetters to the correction of the fool;" 7.23. Till an arrow strike through his liver; As a bird hasteneth to the snare— And knoweth not that it is at the cost of his life." 24.30. I went by the field of the slothful, And by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;" 24.31. And, lo, it was all grown over with thistles, The face thereof was covered with nettles, And the stone wall thereof was broken down." 24.33. ’Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep’—" 30.6. Add thou not unto His words, Lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." 30.11. There is a generation that curse their father, And do not bless their mother." 30.15. The horseleech hath two daughters: ‘Give, give.’ There are three things that are never satisfied, Yea, four that say not: ‘Enough’:" 30.16. The grave; and the barren womb; The earth that is not satisfied with water; And the fire that saith not: ‘Enough.’" 30.18. There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yea, four which I know not:" 30.19. The way of an eagle in the air; The way of a serpent upon a rock; The way of a ship in the midst of the sea; And the way of a man with a young woman." 30.21. For three things the earth doth quake, And for four it cannot endure:" 30.22. For a servant when he reigneth; And a churl when he is filled with food;" 30.23. For an odious woman when she is married; And a handmaid that is heir to her mistress." 30.24. There are four things which are little upon the earth, But they are exceeding wise:" 30.25. The ants are a people not strong, Yet they provide their food in the summer;" 30.26. The rock-badgers are but a feeble folk, Yet make they their houses in the crags;" 30.27. The locusts have no king, Yet go they forth all of them by bands;" 30.28. The spider thou canst take with the hands, Yet is she in kings’palaces." 30.29. There are three things which are stately in their march, Yea, four which are stately in going:" 30.30. The lion, which is mightiest among beasts, And turneth not away for any;" 30.31. The greyhound; the he-goat also; And the king, against whom there is no rising up." 31.5. Lest they drink, and forget that which is decreed, And pervert the justice due to any that is afflicted." 31.9. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy." 31.20. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; Yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy."

1.1. All wisdom comes from the Lord and is with him for ever. 1.1. The fear of the Lord delights the heart,and gives gladness and joy and long life. 1.2. The sand of the sea, the drops of rain,and the days of eternity -- who can count them? 1.3. The height of heaven, the breadth of the earth,the abyss, and wisdom -- who can search them out? 1.3. Do not exalt yourself lest you fall,and thus bring dishonor upon yourself. The Lord will reveal your secrets and cast you down in the midst of the congregation,because you did not come in the fear of the Lord,and your heart was full of deceit. 1.4. Wisdom was created before all things,and prudent understanding from eternity. 1.5. The root of wisdom -- to whom has it been revealed?Her clever devices -- who knows them? 1.6. There is One who is wise, greatly to be feared,sitting upon his throne. 1.7. The Lord himself created wisdom;he saw her and apportioned her,he poured her out upon all his works. 1.8. She dwells with all flesh according to his gift,and he supplied her to those who love him. 1.9. The fear of the Lord is glory and exultation,and gladness and a crown of rejoicing. 3.21. Seek not what is too difficult for you,nor investigate what is beyond your power. 3.22. Reflect upon what has been assigned to you,for you do not need what is hidden. 3.23. Do not meddle in what is beyond your tasks,for matters too great for human understanding have been shown you. 3.24. For their hasty judgment has led many astray,and wrong opinion has caused their thoughts to slip. 7.29. With all your soul fear the Lord,and honor his priests. 7.31. Fear the Lord and honor the priest,and give him his portion, as is commanded you:the first fruits, the guilt offering, the gift of the shoulders,the sacrifice of sanctification,and the first fruits of the holy things. 35.1. He who keeps the law makes many offerings;he who heeds the commandments sacrifices a peace offering. 35.1. Give to the Most High as he has given,and as generously as your hand has found. 35.2. He who returns a kindness offers fine flour,and he who gives alms sacrifices a thank offering. 35.2. Mercy is as welcome when he afflicts them as clouds of rain in the time of drought. 35.3. To keep from wickedness is pleasing to the Lord,and to forsake unrighteousness is atonement. 35.4. Do not appear before the Lord empty-handed 35.5. for all these things are to be done because of the commandment. 35.6. The offering of a righteous man anoints the altar,and its pleasing odor rises before the Most High. 35.7. The sacrifice of a righteous man is acceptable,and the memory of it will not be forgotten.
