Proverbs 27:1–3 (ESV)
1 Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring.
2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
a stranger, and not your own lips.
3 A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty,
but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.
Proverbs 27:5 (ESV)
5 Better is open rebuke
than hidden love.
Proverbs 27:9–10 (ESV)
9 Oil and perfume make the heart glad,
and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel.
10 Do not forsake your friend and your father’s friend,
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.
Proverbs 27:14 (ESV)
14 Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice,
rising early in the morning,
will be counted as cursing.
Proverbs 27:19 (ESV)
19 As in water face reflects face,
so the heart of man reflects the man.
