BRAGADAYJAH 1617 Proverbs 26: 15- 28 Warnings and Instructions The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom, it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth. The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit, than seven men that can render a reason. He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife, belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears. As a mad man who casteth, firebrands, arrows and death, So, is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and say, “Am I not in sport?” Where no wood is, there the fire goes out, as where there is no talebearer the strife ceaseth. As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire, so is a contentious man to kindle strife. The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. Burning lips, and a wicked heart, are like a potsherd covered with silver dross. He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him. When he speaketh fair, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart. Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation. Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein; and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him. A lying tongue hateth those who are afflicted by it, and a flattering tongue worketh ruin.
