Chapter 30

PRO.30:1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, his utterance. This man declared to Ithiel-to Ithiel and Ucal:
PRO.30:2 Surely I am more stupid than any man, And do not have the understanding of a man.
PRO.30:3 I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One.
PRO.30:4 Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is  His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know?
PRO.30:5 Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
PRO.30:6 Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
PRO.30:7 Two things I request of You (Deprive me not before I die):
PRO.30:8 Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches-Feed me with the food allotted to me;
PRO.30:9 Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God.
PRO.30:10 Do not malign a servant to his master, Lest he curse you, and you be found guilty.
PRO.30:11 There is a generation that curses its father, And does not bless its mother.
PRO.30:12 There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, Yet is not washed from its filthiness.
PRO.30:13 There is a generation-oh, how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.
PRO.30:14 There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, And whose fangs are like knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, And the needy from among men.
PRO.30:15 The leech has two daughters-Give and Give! There are three things that are never satisfied, Four never say, “Enough!”:
PRO.30:16 The grave, The barren womb, The earth that is not satisfied with water-And the fire never says, “Enough!”
PRO.30:17 The eye that mocks his father, And scorns obedience to his mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young eagles will eat it.
PRO.30:18 There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yes, four which I do not understand:
PRO.30:19 The way of an eagle in the air, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the midst of the sea, And the way of a man with a virgin.
PRO.30:20 This is the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, And says, “I have done no wickedness.”
PRO.30:21 For three things the earth is perturbed, Yes, for four it cannot bear up:
PRO.30:22 For a servant when he reigns, A fool when he is filled with food,
PRO.30:23 A hateful woman when she is married, And a maidservant who succeeds her mistress.
PRO.30:24 There are four things which are little on the earth, But they are exceedingly wise:
PRO.30:25 The ants are a people not strong, Yet they prepare their food in the summer;
PRO.30:26 The rock badgers are a feeble folk, Yet they make their homes in the crags;
PRO.30:27 The locusts have no king, Yet they all advance in ranks;
PRO.30:28 The spider skillfully grasps with its hands, And it is in kings’ palaces.
PRO.30:29 There are three things which are majestic in pace, Yes, four which are stately in walk:
PRO.30:30 A lion, which is mighty among beasts And does not turn away from any;
PRO.30:31 A greyhound, A male goat also, And a king whose troops are with him.
PRO.30:32 If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, Or if you have devised evil, put your hand on your mouth.
PRO.30:33 For as the churning of milk produces butter, And wringing the nose produces blood, So the forcing of wrath produces strife.
