1 Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day might bring.
2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth — a stranger, and not your own lips.
3 A stone is heavy and sand, a burden, but aggravation from a fool outweighs them both.
4 Fury is cruel, and anger a flood, but who can withstand jealousy?
5 Better an open reprimand than concealed love.
6 The wounds of a friend are trustworthy, but the kisses of an enemy are excessive.
7 A person who is full tramples on a honeycomb, but to a hungry person, any bitter thing is sweet.
8 A man wandering from his home is like a bird wandering from its nest.
9 Oil and incense bring joy to the heart, and the sweetness of a friend is better than self-counsel.
Proverbs 27:1-9 (HCSB)
10 Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me.
12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.
13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.
15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.
16 Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself.
17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
18 Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.
Proverbs 27:10-18 (KJV)
19 As water reflects the face, so the heart reflects the person.
20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and people’s eyes are never satisfied.
21 A crucible for silver, and a smelter for gold, and a man for the words of his praise.
22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, you will not separate his foolishness from him.
23 Know well the condition of your flock, and pay attention to your herds,
24 for wealth is not forever; not even a crown lasts for all time.
25 When hay is removed and new growth appears and the grain from the hills is gathered in,
26 lambs will provide your clothing, and goats, the price of a field;
27 there will be enough goat’s milk for your food — food for your household and nourishment for your female servants.
Prov 27:19-27 (HCSB)
31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
32 If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
John 13:31-36 (KJV)
9 But as it is written: What eye did not see and ear did not hear, and what never entered the human mind — God prepared this for those who love Him.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (HCSB)
1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
2 Corinthians 5:1-10 (KJV)
17 He is before all things, and by Him all things hold together.
Colossians 1:17 (HCSB)
