The wordsH1697 of AgurH94 the sonH1121 of Jakeh,H3348 even the prophecy:H4853 the manH1397 spokeH5002 to Ithiel,H384 even to IthielH384 and Ucal,H401
SurelyH3588 I am more brutishH1197 than any man,H376 and have not the understandingH998 of a man.H120
I neitherH3808 learnedH3925 wisdom,H2451 nor have the knowledgeH1847 of the holy.H6918
WhoH4310 has ascendedH5927 up into heaven,H8064 or descended?H3381 whoH4310 has gatheredH622 the windH7307 in his fists?H2651 whoH4310 has boundH6887 the watersH4325 in a garment?H8071 whoH4310 has establishedH6965 allH3605 the endsH657 of the earth?H776 whatH4100 is his name,H8034 and whatH4100 is his son'sH1121 name,H8034 if you can tell?H3045
EveryH3605 wordH565 of GodH433 is pure:H6884 he is a shieldH4043 to them that put their trustH2620 in him.
AddH3254 you not to his words,H1697 lestH6435 he reproveH3198 you, and you be found a liar.H376 H3576
TwoH8147 things have I requiredH7592 of you; denyH4513 me them not beforeH2962 I die:H4191
RemoveH7368 farH7369 from me vanityH7723 and lies:H3576 giveH5414 me neitherH408 povertyH7389 nor riches;H6239 feedH2963 me with foodH3899 convenientH2706 for me:
LestH6435 I be full,H7646 and denyH3584 you, and say,H559 WhoH4310 is the LORD?H3068 or lestH6435 I be poor,H3423 and steal,H1589 and takeH8610 the nameH8034 of my GodH430 in vain.
AccuseH3960 not a servantH5650 to his master,H113 lestH6435 he curseH7043 you, and you be found guilty.H816
There is a generationH1755 that cursesH7043 their father,H1 and does not blessH1288 their mother.H517
There is a generationH1755 that are pureH2889 in their own eyes,H5869 and yet is not washedH7364 from their filthiness.H6675
There is a generation,H1755 O howH4100 loftyH7311 are their eyes!H5869 and their eyelidsH6079 are liftedH5375 up.
There is a generation,H1755 whose teethH8127 are as swords,H2719 and their jawH4973 teethH4973 as knives,H3979 to devourH398 the poorH6041 from off the earth,H776 and the needyH34 from among men.H120
The horse leachH5936 has twoH8147 daughters,H1323 crying, Give,H3051 give.H3051 There are threeH7969 things that are neverH3808 satisfied,H7646 yes, fourH702 things sayH559 not, It is enough:H1952
The grave;H7585 and the barrenH6115 womb;H7356 the earthH776 that is not filledH7646 with water;H4325 and the fireH784 that saidH559 not, It is enough.H1952
The eyeH5869 that mocksH3932 at his father,H1 and despisesH936 to obeyH3349 his mother,H517 the ravensH6158 of the valleyH5158 shall pickH5365 it out, and the youngH1121 eaglesH5404 shall eatH398 it.
There be threeH7969 things which are too wonderfulH6381 for me, yes, fourH702 which I knowH3045 not:
The wayH1870 of an eagleH5404 in the air;H8064 the wayH1870 of a serpentH5175 on a rock;H6697 the wayH1870 of a shipH591 in the middleH3820 of the sea;H3220 and the wayH1870 of a manH1397 with a maid.H5959
SuchH3651 is the wayH1870 of an adulterousH5003 woman;H802 she eats,H398 and wipesH4229 her mouth,H6310 and said,H559 I have doneH6466 noH3808 wickedness.H205
For threeH7969 things the earthH776 is disquieted,H7264 and for fourH702 which it cannotH3808 H3201 bear:H5375
For a servantH5650 whenH3588 he reigns;H4427 and a foolH5036 whenH3588 he is filledH7646 with meat;H3899
For an odiousH8130 woman whenH3588 she is married;H1166 and an handmaidH8198 that is heirH3423 to her mistress.H1404
There be fourH702 things which are littleH6996 on the earth,H776 but they are exceeding wise:H2450
The antsH5244 are a peopleH5971 not strong,H5794 yet they prepareH3559 their meatH3899 in the summer;H7019
The coniesH8227 are but a feebleH3808 H6099 folk,H5971 yet makeH7760 they their housesH1004 in the rocks;H5553
The locustsH697 have noH369 king,H4428 yet goH3318 they forthH3318 allH3605 of them by bands;H2686
The spiderH8079 takesH8610 holdH8610 with her hands,H3027 and is in kings'H4428 palaces.H1964
There be threeH7969 things which goH3190 well,H3190 yes, fourH702 are comelyH3190 in going:H3212
A lionH3918 which is strongestH1368 among beasts,H929 and turnsH7725 not away for any;H3605
A greyhound;H2223 H4975 an he goatH8495 also;H176 and a king,H4428 againstH5973 whomH5973 there is noH510 risingH510 up.
IfH518 you have done foolishlyH5034 in liftingH5375 up yourself, or ifH518 you have thoughtH2161 evil, lay your handH3027 on your mouth.H6310
SurelyH3588 the churningH4330 of milkH2461 bringsH3318 forthH3318 butter,H2529 and the wringingH4330 of the noseH639 bringsH3318 forthH3318 blood:H1818 so the forcingH4330 of wrathH639 bringsH3318 forthH3318 strife.H7379
