The Proverbs - Chapter 27
The Proverbs Chapters
1 Do not congratulate yourself about tomorrow, since you do not know what today will bring forth.
14 Whoever at dawn loudly blesses his neighbour -- it will be reckoned to him as a curse.
15 The dripping of a gutter on a rainy day and a quarrelsome woman are alike;
17 Iron is sharpened by iron, one person is sharpened by contact with another.
18 Whoever tends the fig tree eats its figs, whoever looks after his master will be honoured.
21 A furnace for silver, a foundry for gold: a person is worth what his reputation is worth.
22 Pound a fool in a mortar, among grain with a pestle, his folly will not leave him.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
