There is a kind of man who curses his father And does not bless his mother. (Proverbs 30:11)

There is a kind who is pure in his own eyes, Yet is not washed from his filthiness. (Proverbs 30:12)

There is a kind--oh how lofty are his eyes! And his eyelids are raised in arrogance. (Proverbs 30:13)

There is a kind of man whose teeth are like swords And his jaw teeth like knives, To devour the afflicted from the earth And the needy from among men. (Proverbs 30:14)

The leech has two daughters, "Give," "Give." There are three things that will not be satisfied, Four that will not say, "Enough": (Proverbs 30:15)

Sheol, and the barren womb, Earth that is never satisfied with water, And fire that never says, "Enough." (Proverbs 30:16)

The eye that mocks a father And scorns a mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young eagles will eat it. (Proverbs 30:17)
