Mishlei (Proverbs)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1דִּבְרֵ֤י ׀ אָג֥וּר בִּן ־ יָקֶ֗ה הַמַּ֫שָּׂ֥א נְאֻ֣ם הַ֭גֶּבֶר לְאִֽיתִיאֵ֑ל לְאִ֖יתִיאֵ֣ל וְאֻכָֽל ׃Prv 30:1
¶The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, the oracle:
the man says to Ithiel,
to Ithiel and Ucal:
2כִּ֤י בַ֣עַר אָנֹכִ֣י מֵאִ֑ישׁ וְלֹֽא ־ בִינַ֖ת אָדָ֣ם לִֽי ׃Prv 30:2
“Surely I am the most ignorant man,
and don’t have a man’s understanding.
3וְלֹֽא ־ לָמַ֥דְתִּי חָכְמָ֑ה וְדַ֖עַת קְדֹשִׁ֣ים אֵדָֽע ׃Prv 30:3
I have not learned wisdom,
neither do I have the knowledge of the Holy One.
4מִ֤י עָלָֽה ־ שָׁמַ֨יִם ׀ וַיֵּרַ֡ד מִ֤י אָֽסַף ־ ר֨וּחַ ׀ בְּחָפְנָ֡יו מִ֤י צָֽרַר ־ מַ֨יִם ׀ בַּשִּׂמְלָ֗ה מִ֭י הֵקִ֣ים כָּל ־ אַפְסֵי ־ אָ֑רֶץ מַה ־ שְּׁמ֥וֹ וּמַֽה ־ שֶּׁם ־ בְּ֝נ֗וֹ כִּ֣י תֵדָֽע ׃Prv 30:4
Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended?
Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has bound the waters in his garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if you know?
5כָּל ־ אִמְרַ֣ת אֱל֣וֹהַּ צְרוּפָ֑ה מָגֵ֥ן ה֝֗וּא לַֽחֹסִ֥ים בּֽוֹ ׃Prv 30:5
“Every word of God is flawless.
He is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
6אַל ־ תּ֥וֹסְףְּ עַל ־ דְּבָרָ֑יו פֶּן ־ יוֹכִ֖יחַ בְּךָ֣ וְנִכְזָֽבְתָּ ׃ פ Prv 30:6
Don’t you add to his words,
lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar.
7שְׁ֭תַּיִם שָׁאַ֣לְתִּי מֵאִתָּ֑ךְ אַל ־ תִּמְנַ֥ע מִ֝מֶּ֗נִּי בְּטֶ֣רֶם אָמֽוּת ׃Prv 30:7
“Two things I have asked of you;
don’t deny me before I die:
8שָׁ֤וְא ׀ וּֽדְבַר ־ כָּזָ֡ב הַרְחֵ֬ק מִמֶּ֗נִּי רֵ֣אשׁ וָ֭עֹשֶׁר אַל ־ תִּֽתֶּן ־ לִ֑י הַ֝טְרִיפֵ֗נִי לֶ֣חֶם חֻקִּֽי ׃Prv 30:8
Remove far from me falsehood and lies.
Give me neither poverty nor riches.
Feed me with the food that is needful for me;
9פֶּ֥ן אֶשְׂבַּ֨ע ׀ וְכִחַשְׁתִּי֮ וְאָמַ֗רְתִּי מִ֥י יְה֫וָ֥ה וּפֶֽן ־ אִוָּרֵ֥שׁ וְגָנַ֑בְתִּי וְ֝תָפַ֗שְׂתִּי שֵׁ֣ם אֱלֹהָֽי ׃ פ Prv 30:9
lest I be full, deny you, and say, ‘Who is Yahweh?’
or lest I be poor, and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.
10אַל ־ תַּלְשֵׁ֣ן עֶ֭בֶד אֶל ־ ‏{ אדנו אֲדֹנָ֑יו }‏ פֶּֽן ־ יְקַלֶּלְךָ֥ וְאָשָֽׁמְתָּ ׃Prv 30:10
“Don’t slander a servant to his master,
lest he curse you, and you be held guilty.
11דּ֭וֹר אָבִ֣יו יְקַלֵּ֑ל וְאֶת ־ אִ֝מּ֗וֹ לֹ֣א יְבָרֵֽךְ ׃Prv 30:11
There is a generation that curses their father,
and doesn’t bless their mother.
12דּ֭וֹר טָה֣וֹר בְּעֵינָ֑יו וּ֝מִצֹּאָת֗וֹ לֹ֣א רֻחָֽץ ׃Prv 30:12
There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes,
yet are not washed from their filthiness.
13דּ֭וֹר מָה ־ רָמ֣וּ עֵינָ֑יו וְ֝עַפְעַפָּ֗יו יִנָּשֵֽׂאוּ ׃Prv 30:13
There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes!
Their eyelids are lifted up.
14דּ֤וֹר ׀ חֲרָב֣וֹת שִׁנָּיו֮ וּֽמַאֲכָל֪וֹת מְֽתַלְּעֹ֫תָ֥יו לֶאֱכֹ֣ל עֲנִיִּ֣ים מֵאֶ֑רֶץ וְ֝אֶבְיוֹנִ֗ים מֵאָדָֽם ׃ פ Prv 30:14
There is a generation whose teeth are like swords,
and their jaws like knives,
to devour the poor from the earth, and the needy from among men.
15לַֽעֲלוּקָ֨ה ׀ שְׁתֵּ֥י בָנוֹת֮ הַ֤ב ׀ הַ֥ב שָׁל֣וֹשׁ הֵ֭נָּה לֹ֣א תִשְׂבַּ֑עְנָה אַ֝רְבַּ֗ע לֹא ־ אָ֥מְרוּ הֽוֹן ׃Prv 30:15
“The leach has two daughters:
‘Give, give.’
“There are three things that are never satisfied;
four that don’t say, ‘Enough:’
16שְׁאוֹל֮ וְעֹ֪צֶ֫ר רָ֥חַם אֶ֭רֶץ לֹא ־ שָׂ֣בְעָה מַּ֑יִם וְ֝אֵ֗שׁ לֹא ־ אָ֥מְרָה הֽוֹן ׃Prv 30:16
Sheol,
the barren womb;
the earth that is not satisfied with water;
and the fire that doesn’t say, ‘Enough.’
17עַ֤יִן ׀ תִּֽלְעַ֣ג לְאָב֮ וְתָב֪וּז לִֽיקֲּהַ֫ת ־ אֵ֥ם יִקְּר֥וּהָ עֹרְבֵי ־ נַ֑חַל וְֽיֹאכְל֥וּהָ בְנֵי ־ נָֽשֶׁר ׃ פ Prv 30:17
“The eye that mocks at his father,
and scorns obedience to his mother:
the ravens of the valley shall pick it out,
the young eagles shall eat it.
18שְׁלֹשָׁ֣ה הֵ֭מָּה נִפְלְא֣וּ מִמֶּ֑נִּי ‏{ וארבע וְ֝אַרְבָּעָ֗ה }‏ לֹ֣א יְדַעְתִּֽים ׃Prv 30:18
“There are three things which are too amazing for me,
four which I don’t understand:
19דֶּ֤רֶךְ הַנֶּ֨שֶׁר ׀ בַּשָּׁמַיִם֮ דֶּ֥רֶךְ נָחָ֗שׁ עֲלֵ֫י צ֥וּר דֶּֽרֶךְ ־ אֳנִיָּ֥ה בְלֶב ־ יָ֑ם וְדֶ֖רֶךְ גֶּ֣בֶר בְּעַלְמָֽה ׃Prv 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 maiden.
20כֵּ֤ן ׀ דֶּ֥רֶךְ אִשָּׁ֗ה מְנָ֫אָ֥פֶת אָ֭כְלָה וּמָ֣חֲתָה פִ֑יהָ וְ֝אָמְרָ֗ה לֹֽא ־ פָעַ֥לְתִּי אָֽוֶן ׃ פ Prv 30:20
“So is the way of an adulterous woman:
she eats and wipes her mouth,
and says, ‘I have done nothing wrong.’
21תַּ֣חַת שָׁ֭לוֹשׁ רָ֣גְזָה אֶ֑רֶץ וְתַ֥חַת אַ֝רְבַּ֗ע לֹא ־ תוּכַ֥ל שְׂאֵֽת ׃Prv 30:21
“For three things the earth tremble,
and under four, it can’t bear up:
22תַּֽחַת ־ עֶ֭בֶד כִּ֣י יִמְל֑וֹךְ וְ֝נָבָ֗ל כִּ֣י יִֽשְׂבַּֽע ־ לָֽחֶם ׃Prv 30:22
For a servant when he is king;
a fool when he is filled with food;
23תַּ֣חַת שְׂ֭נוּאָה כִּ֣י תִבָּעֵ֑ל וְ֝שִׁפְחָ֗ה כִּֽי ־ תִירַ֥שׁ גְּבִרְתָּֽהּ ׃ פ Prv 30:23
for an unloved woman when she is married;
and a handmaid who is heir to her mistress.
24אַרְבָּ֣עָה הֵ֭ם קְטַנֵּי ־ אָ֑רֶץ וְ֝הֵ֗מָּה חֲכָמִ֥ים מְחֻכָּמִֽים ׃Prv 30:24
“There are four things which are little on the earth,
but they are exceedingly wise:
25הַ֭נְּמָלִים עַ֣ם לֹא ־ עָ֑ז וַיָּכִ֖ינוּ בַקַּ֣יִץ לַחְמָֽם ׃Prv 30:25
the ants are not a strong people,
yet they provide their food in the summer.
26שְׁ֭פַנִּים עַ֣ם לֹא ־ עָצ֑וּם וַיָּשִׂ֖ימוּ בַסֶּ֣לַע בֵּיתָֽם ׃Prv 30:26
The conies are but a feeble folk,
yet make they their houses in the rocks.
27מֶ֭לֶךְ אֵ֣ין לָאַרְבֶּ֑ה וַיֵּצֵ֖א חֹצֵ֣ץ כֻּלּֽוֹ ׃Prv 30:27
The locusts have no king,
yet they advance in ranks.
28שְׂ֭מָמִית בְּיָדַ֣יִם תְּתַפֵּ֑שׂ וְ֝הִ֗יא בְּהֵ֣יכְלֵי מֶֽלֶךְ ׃ פ Prv 30:28
You can catch a lizard with your hands,
yet it is in kings’ palaces.
29שְׁלֹשָׁ֣ה הֵ֭מָּה מֵיטִ֣יבֵי צָ֑עַד וְ֝אַרְבָּעָ֗ה מֵיטִ֥בֵי לָֽכֶת ׃Prv 30:29
“There are three things which are stately in their march,
four which are stately in going:
30לַ֭יִשׁ גִּבּ֣וֹר בַּבְּהֵמָ֑ה וְלֹא ־ יָ֝שׁ֗וּב מִפְּנֵי ־ כֹֽל ׃Prv 30:30
The lion, which is mightiest among animals,
and doesn’t turn away for any;
31זַרְזִ֣יר מָתְנַ֣יִם אוֹ ־ תָ֑יִשׁ וּ֝מֶ֗לֶךְ אַלְק֥וּם עִמּֽוֹ ׃Prv 30:31
the greyhound,
the male goat also;
and the king against whom there is no rising up.
32אִם ־ נָבַ֥לְתָּ בְהִתְנַשֵּׂ֑א וְאִם ־ זַ֝מּ֗וֹתָ יָ֣ד לְפֶֽה ׃Prv 30:32
“If you have done foolishly in lifting up yourself,
or if you have thought evil,
put your hand over your mouth.
33כִּ֤י מִ֪יץ חָלָ֡ב י֘וֹצִ֤יא חֶמְאָ֗ה וּֽמִיץ ־ אַ֭ף י֣וֹצִיא דָ֑ם וּמִ֥יץ אַ֝פַּ֗יִם י֣וֹצִיא רִֽיב ׃ פ Prv 30:33
For as the churning of milk brings forth butter,
and the wringing of the nose brings forth blood;
so the forcing of wrath brings forth strife.”
