Proverbs 30:1-9

Sayings of Agur

30The words of Agur son of Jakeh. An oracle.


Thus says the man: I am weary, O God,
   I am weary, O God. How can I prevail?*
2 Surely I am too stupid to be human;
   I do not have human understanding.
3 I have not learned wisdom,
   nor have I knowledge of the holy ones.*
4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
   Who has gathered the wind in the hollow of the hand?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
   Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is the person’s name?
   And what is the name of the person’s child?
   Surely you know!


5 Every word of God proves true;
   he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 Do not add to his words,
   or else he will rebuke you, and you will be found a liar.


7 Two things I ask of you;
   do not deny them to me before I die:
8 Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
   give me neither poverty nor riches;
   feed me with the food that I need,
9 or I shall be full, and deny you,
   and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
or I shall be poor, and steal,
   and profane the name of my God.
