Proverbs 30.17-33


17 The eye that mocks a father
   and scorns to obey a mother
will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley
   and eaten by the vultures.


18 Three things are too wonderful for me;
   four I do not understand:
19 the way of an eagle in the sky,
   the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
   and the way of a man with a girl.


20 This is the way of an adulteress:
   she eats, and wipes her mouth,
   and says, ‘I have done no wrong.’


21 Under three things the earth trembles;
   under four it cannot bear up:
22 a slave when he becomes king,
   and a fool when glutted with food;
23 an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
   and a maid when she succeeds her mistress.


24 Four things on earth are small,
   yet they are exceedingly wise:
25 the ants are a people without strength,
   yet they provide their food in the summer;
26 the badgers are a people without power,
   yet they make their homes in the rocks;
27 the locusts have no king,
   yet all of them march in rank;
28 the lizard* can be grasped in the hand,
   yet it is found in kings’ palaces.


29 Three things are stately in their stride;
   four are stately in their gait:
30 the lion, which is mightiest among wild animals
   and does not turn back before any;
31 the strutting rooster,* the he-goat,
   and a king striding before* his people.


32 If you have been foolish, exalting yourself,
   or if you have been devising evil,
   put your hand on your mouth.
33 For as pressing milk produces curds,
   and pressing the nose produces blood,
   so pressing anger produces strife.
