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." 1.8. Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, And forsake not the teaching of thy mother;" 4.3. For I was a son unto my father, Tender and an only one in front of my mother." 5.1. My son, attend unto my wisdom; Incline thine ear to my understanding;" 5.2. That thou mayest preserve discretion, And that thy lips may keep knowledge." 5.3. For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;" 5.4. But her end is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword." 5.5. Her feet go down to death; Her steps take hold on the nether-world;" 5.6. Lest she should walk the even path of life, Her ways wander, but she knoweth it not." 5.7. Now therefore, O ye children, hearken unto me, And depart not from the words of my mouth." 5.8. Remove thy way far from her, And come not nigh the door of her house;" 5.9. Lest thou give thy vigour unto others, And thy years unto the cruel;" 5.10. Lest strangers be filled with thy strength, And thy labours be in the house of an alien;" 5.11. And thou moan, when thine end cometh, When thy flesh and thy body are consumed," 5.12. And say: ‘How have I hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;" 5.13. Neither have I hearkened to the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!" 5.14. I was well nigh in all evil In the midst of the congregation and assembly.’" 5.15. Drink waters out of thine own cistern, And running waters out of thine own well." 5.16. Let thy springs be dispersed abroad, And courses of water in the streets." 5.17. Let them be only thine own, And not strangers’with thee." 5.18. Let thy fountain be blessed; And have joy of the wife of thy youth." 5.19. A lovely hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; With her love be thou ravished always." 5.20. Why then wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, And embrace the bosom of an alien?" 5.21. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He maketh even all his paths." 5.22. His own iniquities shall ensnare the wicked, And he shall be holden with the cords of his sin." 5.23. He shall die for lack of instruction; And in the greatness of his folly he shall reel." 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." 6.20. My son, keep the commandment of thy father, And forsake not the teaching of thy mother;" 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." 10.1. The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish son is the grief of his mother." 13.24. He that spareth his rod hateth his son; But he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." 15.20. A wise son maketh a glad father; But a foolish man despiseth his mother." 22.15. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; But the rod of correction shall drive it far from him." 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’—" 27.20. The nether-world and Destruction are never satiated; So the eyes of man are never satiated." 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." 30.14. 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." 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." 31.10. A woman of valour who can find? For her price is far above rubies." 31.11. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, and he hath no lack of gain." 31.12. She doeth him good and not evil all the days of her life." 31.13. She seeketh wool and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands." 31.14. She is like the merchant-ships; she bringeth her food from afar." 31.15. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth food to her household, and a portion to her maidens." 31.16. She considereth a field, and buyeth it; with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard." 31.17. She girdeth her loins with strength, And maketh strong her arms." 31.18. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good; Her lamp goeth not out by night." 31.19. She layeth her hands to the distaff, And her hands hold the spindle." 31.20. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; Yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy." 31.21. She is not afraid of the snow for her household; For all her household are clothed with scarlet." 31.22. She maketh for herself coverlets; Her clothing is fine linen and purple." 31.23. Her husband is known in the gates, When he sitteth among the elders of the land." 31.24. She maketh linen garments and selleth them; And delivereth girdles unto the merchant." 31.25. Strength and dignity are her clothing; And she laugheth at the time to come." 31.26. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; And the law of kindness is on her tongue." 31.27. She looketh well to the ways of her household, And eateth not the bread of idleness." 31.28. Her children rise up, and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praiseth her:" 31.29. ’Many daughters have done valiantly, But thou excellest them all.’" 31.30. Grace is deceitful, and beauty is vain; But a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised." 31.31. Give her of the fruit of her hands; And let her works praise her in the gates."
10. Hebrew Bible, Psalms, 104.13 (9th cent. BCE - 3rd cent. BCE)

104.13. מַשְׁקֶה הָרִים מֵעֲלִיּוֹתָיו מִפְּרִי מַעֲשֶׂיךָ תִּשְׂבַּע הָאָרֶץ׃ 104.13. Who waterest the mountains from Thine upper chambers; The earth is full of the fruit of Thy works."

12. Hebrew Bible, Habakkuk, 2.18 (8th cent. BCE - 6th cent. BCE)

2.18. מָה־הוֹעִיל פֶּסֶל כִּי פְסָלוֹ יֹצְרוֹ מַסֵּכָה וּמוֹרֶה שָּׁקֶר כִּי בָטַח יֹצֵר יִצְרוֹ עָלָיו לַעֲשׂוֹת אֱלִילִים אִלְּמִים׃ 2.18. What profiteth the graven image, That the maker thereof hath graven it, Even the molten image, and the teacher of lies; That the maker of his work trusteth therein, To make dumb idols?"
13. Hebrew Bible, Jeremiah, 31.34 (8th cent. BCE - 5th cent. BCE)

31.34. וְלֹא יְלַמְּדוּ עוֹד אִישׁ אֶת־רֵעֵהוּ וְאִישׁ אֶת־אָחִיו לֵאמֹר דְּעוּ אֶת־יְהוָה כִּי־כוּלָּם יֵדְעוּ אוֹתִי לְמִקְטַנָּם וְעַד־גְּדוֹלָם נְאֻם־יְהוָה כִּי אֶסְלַח לַעֲוֺנָם וּלְחַטָּאתָם לֹא אֶזְכָּר־עוֹד׃ 31.34. and they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying: ‘Know the LORD’; for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more."
14. Hebrew Bible, Ezekiel, 16.28-16.29 (6th cent. BCE - 5th cent. BCE)

16.28. וַתִּזְנִי אֶל־בְּנֵי אַשּׁוּר מִבִּלְתִּי שָׂבְעָתֵךְ וַתִּזְנִים וְגַם לֹא שָׂבָעַתְּ׃ 16.29. וַתַּרְבִּי אֶת־תַּזְנוּתֵךְ אֶל־אֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן כַּשְׂדִּימָה וְגַם־בְּזֹאת לֹא שָׂבָעַתְּ׃ 16.28. Thou hast played the harlot also with the Assyrians, without having enough; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet thou wast not satisfied." 16.29. Thou hast moreover multiplied thy harlotry with the land of traffic, even with Chaldea; and yet thou didst not have enough herewith."
15. Hebrew Bible, Ecclesiastes, 4.8 (5th cent. BCE - 2nd cent. BCE)

4.8. יֵשׁ אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי גַּם בֵּן וָאָח אֵין־לוֹ וְאֵין קֵץ לְכָל־עֲמָלוֹ גַּם־עיניו [עֵינוֹ] לֹא־תִשְׂבַּע עֹשֶׁר וּלְמִי אֲנִי עָמֵל וּמְחַסֵּר אֶת־נַפְשִׁי מִטּוֹבָה גַּם־זֶה הֶבֶל וְעִנְיַן רָע הוּא׃ 4.8. There is one that is alone, and he hath not a second; yea, he hath neither son nor brother; yet is there no end of all his labour, neither is his eye satisfied with riches: ‘for whom then do I labour, and bereave my soul of pleasure?’ This also is vanity, yea, it is a grievous business."
16. Anon., 1 Enoch, 7.3-7.5, 91.4, 94.1, 94.6, 97.8-97.9, 98.11-98.12, 98.16, 102.9 (3rd cent. BCE - 2nd cent. BCE)

7.3. became pregt, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed 7.4. all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against 7.5. them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and 91.4. Love uprightness and walk therein. And draw not nigh to uprightness with a double heart, And associate not with those of a double heart,But walk in righteousness, my sons. And it shall guide you on good paths, And righteousness shall be your companion. 94.1. And now I say unto you, my sons, love righteousness and walk therein; For the paths of righteousness are worthy of acceptation, But the paths of unrighteousness shall suddenly be destroyed and vanish. 94.1. Thus I speak and declare unto you: He who hath created you will overthrow you, And for your fall there shall be no compassion, And your Creator will rejoice at your destruction. 94.6. Woe to those who build unrighteousness and oppression And lay deceit as a foundation; For they shall be suddenly overthrown, And they shall have no peace. 97.8. Woe to you who acquire silver and gold in unrighteousness and say: ' We have become rich with riches and have possessions; And have acquired everything we have desired. 97.9. And now let us do what we purposed: For we have gathered silver 98.11. Woe to you, ye obstinate of heart, who work wickedness and eat blood: Whence have ye good things to eat and to drink and to be filled From all the good things which the Lord the Most High has placed in abundance on the earth; therefore ye shall have no peace. 98.12. Woe to you who love the deeds of unrighteousness: wherefore do ye hope for good hap unto yourselves know that ye shall be delivered into the hands of the righteous, and they shall cut 102.9.
