The Proverbs - Chapter 30
The Proverbs Chapters
3 I have not learnt wisdom, and I lack the knowledge of the holy ones.
4 Who has mounted to the heavens, then come down again? Who has gathered the wind in the clasp of his hand? Who has wrapped the waters in his cloak? Who has set all the ends of the earth firm? What is his name? What is his child's name? Do you know?
5 Every word of God is unalloyed, a shield to those who take refuge in him.
8 keep falsehood and lies far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches, grant me only my share of food,
11 There is a breed of person that curses his father and does not bless his mother;
19 the way of an eagle through the skies, the way of a snake over the rock, the way of a ship in mid-ocean, the way of a man with a girl.
23 a hateful woman wed at last, a servant girl inheriting from her mistress.
27 locusts, which have no king, yet they all march in good order;
30 the lion, bravest of beasts, he will draw back from nothing;
33 For by churning the milk you produce butter, by wringing the nose you produce blood, and by whipping up anger you produce strife.

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.
