Gleanings from Proverbs 30

Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.

Two things I asked of You, do not refuse me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is my portion, that I not be full and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I not be in want and steal, and profane the name of my God.

There is a kind of man who curses his father and does not bless his mother. There is a kind who is pure in his own eyes, yet is not washed from his filthiness.

If you have been foolish in exalting yourself or if you have plotted evil, put your hand on your mouth.
