Wise (may mga nadagdag na...)

Thirty Wise Sayings from the Wise King himself...King Solomon...(Proverbs 22:22-23:22)
  1. Don't take advantage of the poor or cheat them in court. The Lord is their defender and what you do to them, he will do to you. (lagot ka, Gloria)
  2. Don't make friends with anyone who has bad temper. You might turn out like them and get caught in a trap. (Hmmm...sino kaya nanghawa sa akin?)
  3. Don't guarantee to pay someone else's debt. If you don't have the money you might lose your bed. (Utang mo babayaran ng Nanay mo!)
  4. Don't move a boundary marker set up by your ancestors. (kaya nagkakaroon ng gyera eh!)
  5. If you do your job well, you will work for a ruler and never be a slave. (Depende sa boss mo yan.)
  6. When you are invited to eat with a king, use your best manners. Don't go and stuff yourself! That would be just the same as cutting your throat. Don't be greedy for all that fancy food! It may not be so tasty. (Dapat marunong kang makibagay sa abot ng iyong makakaya.)
  7. Give up trying so hard to get rich. Your money flies away before you know it, just like an eagle suddenly taking off. (Wag kang mag-aalaga ng agila at baka matangay niya ang pera mo...)
  8. Don't accept an invitation to eat a selfish person's food, no matter how good it is. People like that take note of how much you eat. They say, "Take all you want!" But they don't mean it. Each bite will come back up, and your kind words will be wasted. (Selfish nga eh!)
  9. Don't talk to fools--they will just make fun. (Fools nga eh!)
  10. Don't move a boundary marker or take the land that belongs to orphans. God All-Powerful is there to defend them against you. (Sinong guilty?)
  11. Listen to instruction and do your best to learn. (Mismo!)
  12. Don't fail to correct your children. You won't kill them by being firm, and it may even save their lives. (Tama agree ako dito!)
  13. My children, if you show good sense, I will be happy, and if you are truthful, I will really be glad. (Be good. Do good. Look good. Feel good.)
  14. Don't be jealous of sinners, but always honor the LORD. Then you will truly have hope for the future. (God first!)
  15. Listen to me, my children! Be wise and have enough sense to follow the right path. Don't be a heavy drinker or stuff yourself with food. It will make you feel drowsy, and you will end up poor with only rags to wear. (Pwede kang magkasakit at kapag nagkasakit sayang inipon mo, mapupunta lang sa pagpapagamot mo sa ospital kung saan ang suot mo ay parang basahan na nakatagpi lang sa katawan mo...)
  16. Pay attention to your father, and don't neglect your mother when she grows old. Invest in truth and wisdom, discipline and good sense, and don't part with them. Make your father truly happy by living right and showing sound judgement. Make your parents proud, especially your mother. (Tawag dito, utang na loob...para sa kabutihan mo rin ito)
  17. My son, pay close attention, and gladly follow my example. Bad women and unfaithful wives are like deep pit--they are waiting to attack you like agang of robbers with victim after victim. (Same goes for daughters...mas maraming nangangaliwang lalaki ngayon!)
  18. Who is always in trouble? Who argues and fights? Who has cuts and bruises? Whose eyes are red? Everyone who stays up late, having just one more drink. don't even look at that colorful stuff bubbling up in the glass! it goes down so easily, but later it bites like a poisonous snake. You will see weird things, and your mind will play tricks on you. You will feel tossed about like someone trying to sleep on a ship in a storm. You will be bruised all over, without even remembering how it all happened. And you will lie awake asking, "When will morning come, so I can drink some more?" (Don't drink alcohol, use it as antiseptic!)
  19. Don't be jealous of crooks or want to be their friends. All they think about and talk about is violence and cruelty. (Birds of the same feather flock together...tama ba grammar ko?)
  20. Use wisdom and understanding to establish your home; let good sense fill the rooms with priceless treasures.
  21. Wisdom brings strength, and knowledge gives power. Battles are won by listening to advice and making lots of plans. (True!)
  22. Wisdom is too much for fools! their advice is no good. (Ang di maka-appreciate nito--fool...hehe...)
  23. No one but troublemakers think up trouble. Everyone hates senseless fools who think up ways to sin.
  24. Don't give up and be helpless in times of trouble.
  25. Don't fail to rescue those who are doomed to die. Don't say, "I didn't know it!" God can read your mind. He watches each of us and knows our thoughts. And God will pay us back for what we do. (So dapat tumulong tayo sa mga pulubi, rugby boys, at sa mga iba pang taong naliligaw ng landas.)
  26. Honey is good for you, my children, and it tastes sweet. Wisdom is like honey for your life--if you find it, your future is bright. (Mag-alaga ka ng bees para marami kang honey...)
  27. Don't be a cruel person who attacks good people and hurt their families. Even if good people fall seven times, they will get back up. But when trouble strikes the wicked, that's the end of them. (Totoo nga naman...)
  28. Don't be happy to see your enemies trip and fall down. The LORD will find out and be unhappy. Then he will stop being angry with them. (Mahal din sila ng Diyos.)
  29. Don't let evil people worry you or make you jealous. They will soon be gone like the flame of a lamp that burns out. (And they will leave you feeling miserable...)
  30. My children, you must respect the LORD and the king, and you must not make friends with anyone who rebels against either of them. Who knows what sudden disaster the LORD or a ruler might bring? (After all, they are in power...)
