Proverbs 27:18
Context
Do Not Boast About Tomorrow

1Boast not yourself of to morrow; for you know not what a day may bring forth. 2Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. 3A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both. 4Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy? 5Open rebuke is better than secret love. 6Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. 7The full soul loathes an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. 8As a bird that wanders from her nest, so is a man that wanders from his place. 9Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so does the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel. 10Your own friend, and your father's friend, forsake not; neither go into your brother's house in the day of your calamity: for better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off. 11My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproaches me. 12A prudent man foresees the evil, and hides himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished. 13Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. 14He that blesses his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him. 15A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. 16Whoever hides her hides the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which denudes itself. 17Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. 18Whoever keeps the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waits on his master shall be honored. 19As in water face answers to face, so the heart of man to man. 20Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied. 21As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise. 22Though you should bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him. 23Be you diligent to know the state of your flocks, and look well to your herds. 24For riches are not for ever: and does the crown endure to every generation? 25The hay appears, and the tender grass shows itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. 26The lambs are for your clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. 27And you shall have goats' milk enough for your food, for the food of your household, and for the maintenance for your maidens.
