Proverbs 23:1-3

Restrain Yourself


1-3When you go out to dinner with an influential person, mind your manners:

Don't gobble your food,

don't talk with your mouth full.

And don't stuff yourself;

bridle your appetite.


4-5Don't wear yourself out trying to get rich;

restrain yourself!

Riches disappear in the blink of an eye;

wealth sprouts wings

and flies off into the wild blue yonder.
