Proverbs 27:15-22 NIV

Proverbs 27:15-22

A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping

of a leaky roof in a rainstorm;

restraining her is like restraining the wind

or grasping oil with the hand.

As iron sharpens iron,

so one person sharpens another.

The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit,

and whoever protects their master will be honored.

As water reflects the face,

so one’s life reflects the heart.27:19 Or so others reflect your heart back to you

Death and Destruction27:20 Hebrew Abaddon are never satisfied,

and neither are human eyes.

The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,

but people are tested by their praise.

Though you grind a fool in a mortar,

grinding them like grain with a pestle,

you will not remove their folly from them.
