|אַֽל־תִּ֭תְהַלֵּל בְּי֣וֹם מָחָ֑ר |
כִּ֤י לֹא־תֵ֝דַ֗ע מַה־יֵּ֥לֶד יֽוֹם
|1||Do not boast in the day that follows, |
for you do not know what a day will beget.
|יְהַלֶּלְךָ֣ זָ֣ר וְלֹא־פִ֑יךָ |
|2||Let a stranger praise you and not your mouth, |
a foreigner and not your lips.
|כֹּֽבֶד־אֶ֭בֶן וְנֵ֣טֶל הַח֑וֹל |
וְכַ֥עַס אֱ֝וִ֗יל כָּבֵ֥ד מִשְּׁנֵיהֶֽם
|3||Heavy a stone and tolerable the sand |
but obstinate grief, heavier than both of them.

A proverb or two a day. I should have learned verse 2 but I didn't. Verse 3 does not translate as KJV has it. The translator must have just been insulted by someone.
