Proverbs 30:29-33

"There are 3 things that are stately in their stride,
4 that move with stately bearing:
a lion, mighty among beasts,
who retreats before nothing;
a strutting rooster, a he-goat,
and a king with his army around him.

I you have played the fool and exalted yourself,
or if you have plannd evil,
clay your hand over your mouth!
For as churning the milk produces butter,
and as twisting the nose produces blood,
so stirring up anger produces strife."


It is not known who Agur was - perhaps a friend of Solomon. Solomon liked his proverbs so well that he thought it worthwhile to include them in his own book.
