Proverbs 30:18-33

18Three things are too wonderful for me;
four I do not understand:
19the way of an eagle in the sky,
the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
and the way of a man with a girl. 20This is the way of an adulteress:
she eats, and wipes her mouth,
and says, “I have done no wrong.” 21Under three things the earth trembles;
under four it cannot bear up:
22a slave when he becomes king,
and a fool when glutted with food;
23an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
and a maid when she succeeds her mistress. 24Four things on earth are small,
yet they are exceedingly wise:
25the ants are a people without strength,
yet they provide their food in the summer;
26the badgers are a people without power,
yet they make their homes in the rocks;
27the locusts have no king,
yet all of them march in rank;
28the lizard can be grasped in the hand,
yet it is found in kings’ palaces. 29Three things are stately in their stride;
four are stately in their gait:
30the lion, which is mightiest among wild animals
and does not turn back before any;
31the strutting rooster, the he-goat,
and a king striding before his people. 32If you have been foolish, exalting yourself,
or if you have been devising evil,
put your hand on your mouth.
33For as pressing milk produces curds,
and pressing the nose produces blood,
so pressing anger produces strife.
